If we were sitting down having coffee together this morning, there would be a lot we'd chat about. A few things:
|| Leaving for vacation sans kids is absolutely amazing. I'm looking forward to it immensely and I'm thankful we are getting to get away. But, why is it seriously such a job to prepare to leave your kids?! My mom is graciously coming in to watch the boys (while my mother-in-law fills in a couple gaps), but just getting schedules written, medical consents signed and notarized, clothes and pajamas laid out, laundry done and put away, meals made so they'll have dinner to eat, sheets washed, house cleaned, etc. I've been working on this stuff all week and I'm seriously worn out! Add onto that that my husband has been traveling on business since Monday and my gracious, I've just been wearing lots of hats over here. I know that sounds ungrateful -- and I'm thrilled to be able to get away -- but man, it's just a lot of work to actually get away when you have littles. ;)
|| The weather here was 96* on Monday, and now it's in the 70s. Texas weather is totally and completely bi-polar. I never know how to dress my kids -- or myself -- in the "fall" here!
|| "A Bad Moms Christmas" actually looks quite hilarious. Just the preview had me cracking up, so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing that around the holidays for a good laugh. ;)
|| I've been really bad about working out lately and not caring about what I eat, and it's really been showing up around my waistline. I have gotten back into doing my morning arm workout and evening ab workout and it feels so much better. I'm also going to look into a group workout class when Knox starts school in January. He and Walker will be at school together one day a week, so I'll have a few hours to myself to workout, clean the house, etc.
|| Before I became a mom, I thought I totally had it all figured out in the mothering department. (As does every person without children at first, but man, that whole parenting thing really can kick you back down to reality.) But can I just say it? All moms -- regardless of whether you work full-time, part-time, stay at home, or a combination of those -- are superstars. We carry so much weight on our shoulders -- so much more than I ever knew before I became a mom -- and I just want to say: if no one's told you yet today, you're a rockstar.
|| I promised y'all an update on RapidLash and well, I'm obsessed. Completely and utterly obsessed! It has really helped make my lashes noticeably long and one tube has lasted me three months (with daily use). I've also not had any eye sensitivity with it, nor any dryness on my eyelids. I'm sold!
