Lately, a temporary, but delicious fix for all of my problems has been a Diet Dr. Pepper from Chick Fil A.
I need to learn to say “no” and listen to my intuition.
Sometimes I start watching a video on Facebook. All of a sudden 3 hours, 234 videos, and 393847 tears are shed. Military homecomings, pregnancy announcements, saved animals, funny things kids say…all the feels!
I found my group of fun, one-too-many margaritas type of girls and we took the Blackstone District by storm last weekend.
Now two of us are moving within the month…naturally. What gives universe?!
I tried on a pair of shorts that were called “mom” shorts at UO this weekend. I was offended for mothers everywhere. There was enough room for a fanny pack in that FUPA area…we had babies…we aren’t trying to smuggle one in the front area of our shorts…
My kids are pushing every last button these last few days…and their dad is away for work.
I’ll be spending most of the weekend surfing the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale web. Send me all the good deals you Insta influensters! Also, ya’ll better not be getting all that shizzz fo’ free!!! If you are, I’m doing something wrong with my life. Teach me your ways.
Also, I’m thinking of making a blog post about fashion finds every other week (because mama ain’t rich). Here’s a top I bought this week at UO. Under $50 which is a STEAL! Lightweight and comfy. Tie front. Long sleeve or roll ’em up!
Yep, that’s a scrunchy on my wrist…I’ve hopped on board.
Now here’s a topic I hope to contribute to every Tuesday!
I’m going to lay out my “truth” for you. I won’t sugar coat my life…so here it is.
-I’m a Target mom through and through. The idea of a Walmart trip makes me sick to my stomach. If Target charged for yearly memberships, like a Costco/Sams…I wouldn’t bat an eye at almost any cost.
-If I had to classify myself as a mom (crunchy/fit/by-the-book/frugal/fun). I’d have to come up with a new category…let’s call it bribery positive? My day consists of a lot of “If you do this…Then you’ll get this” types of sentences. Cake, Icecream, Candy, Toys…you name it. So if you see 2 kids politely sitting in their cart at target…you can likely thank the cake pop in their hand or the threat of the toy aisle being taken away.
-I’m also completely guilty of being the mom full of empty threats. I can probably count on one hand the number of times I went through with one. *facepalm*
-I’ll spend $250 on a weeks worth of groceries but a shirt over $30 is out of the question…unless it’s Lulu.
-I rarely pay full price for clothes…unless it’s Lulu.
-I lie to the pediatrician about my 2 year old and her Paci…and her bottle.
-Talking to people about nutrition gives me anxiety. I get frustrated with how everyone jumps in with two feet on the latest diet “trends”. If your diet has it’s own name, you’re doing it wrong. Eat. Real. Food. Live your life….end of story.
So, let’s all share our truths today! Even if you aren’t proud of them, leave a comment. It’s refreshing to hear that everyone sometimes just takes the easy way out.
Also, my entire outfit pictured here is under $100. Including the shoes and sunglasses. I’m all about that comfy/casual. Everything is linked!
