Today I have decided that we all should be gifted a few fashionable things. Just a few things. Iconic things that should be part of every woman's wardrobe. You know, like how Mother Nature gifts us with beautiful trees and mountains and flowers. What about Mother Fashion? Or Goddess of Style? Or whatever his/her name may be.
We've been very busy in our world. Football practice, dance rehearsals, and some serious homework has taken over our life. To be frank...it's not fun. And I'm still sitting around staring at a gazillion imcomplete projects. You know what that means? It's time to throw a party. Parties seem to provide the needed motivation for project completion at our house.
Anyway... bored of lunch?
Here's a healthy lunch idea. Green smoothie (that thing is chuck full of kale, strawberries, blueberries, skim milk, agave), egg salad on whole wheat (2 hard boiled eggs, salt/pepper, and a hint of low fat mayo), and Beanitos. Have you heard of Beanitos? If you're a chip lover like me you must grab a bag. Super taste and good for you. Try the sea salt ones with homemade salsa or the black bean ones with hummus. Good! (picked mine up at target)
These Essie nail sleek sticks have been most enjoyable. target
This little dude made his was into my heart (and home). tj maxx
Discovered Glamgow face mask. The $$ will make you cry (me too) but truth, it has been worth every penny. Two treatments found my glow again.
In the last week or so I have been reading various articles about kids. Raising kids, how to talk to your kids, how to be a better mom, etc. You know, those articles that make you feel like a piece of crap parent because you're not feeding your kids organic bananas or lovingly tucking them in at night with a beautiful bedtime story. Can I just insert being a parent is so freakin hard! Anyway, after all my reading I have come to a conclusion. Kids these days just need to be diagnosed with awesomeness. Not ADHD, wierdo gluten stuff, depression, sleep disorders...blah...blah...blah....just plain old awesomeness! The end.
You know what else is awesome?
Ignoring your kitchen mess all day...
...so you can take pictures of your son doing tricks on the couch.
I'm fairly certain I'm more excited for him to start school than he is. But let's not tell him that. Yes my son would be wearing crocs. Yep those beyond ugly plasic looking shoes with holes in them. And what's that? A plastic light up croc cartoon decoration inserted into one of the holes? What can I say. He's kid #3, I'm tired, and frankly I don't give a crap.
Where does a Mother go when she's kid free for the first time in 11 years?
For those of you who are still home entertaining your children because school hasn't started yet, hang in there. You can do it!
