First things first…the winner of my giveaway is Kristen!
Yay Kristen!! I really want to try those Picky Bars. They sound amazing.
Look for an email from me (umm, sometime soon) with more info 🙂
So…I have to admit, things are pretty boring around here. While I have no problems getting out and about – IT’S EXHAUSTING. I’m still recovering from this weekend where we managed to go the Splash Park, Barnes & Noble, Davis Bakery for a family breakfast, a birthday party, and grocery shopping.
While the kids are at summer camp, Evan and I are sitting around recovering. He has had a case of the grumps for the past two days.
But, he’s still cute. And getting SO BIG!
Despite the relatively boring days (I mean how exciting it is sitting on the couch?) there are a few things that I’ve been loving on lately that I thought I would share. Bonus: none of them are baby related!
Obviously I’ve had a lot of computer time and therefore a lot of blog time. Here are a few new (to me) blogs that I’ve been reading regularly. I don’t always comment because typing with one hand gets old. Actually, some of these people have no idea that I read their blogs. Surprise! I stalk you.
- Char Eats Greens
- Running Kellometers
- My Food ‘N’ Fitness Diaries
- Muscle Up Mom
- Cheaper Than Therapy
Have any blog recommendations for me? Check out my list of other blogs I frequent HERE.
For a while now, Jackie Jovi has been trying to get me to watch Parks and Rec. Well, congratulations Jackie YOU WIN.
I’m almost done with Season 2 and I don’t see any signs of stopping. I have to say I adore both Amy Pohler and Rashida Jones. And whoever does their makeup. They always look glowing and amazing. Can they come do mine?
Dan and I went shopping last Wednesday (he was thrilled to go to the mall on his day off) and I bought four of these shirts from Loft.
I was actually tempted to buy it in every single color available, but I restrained myself. It’s perfect because I can wear it with anything, it shows off my newly acquired chest nicely (and not in a pornstar kinda way – though I could totally rock that look too right now) and it’s billowy enough to hide my postpartum pooch.
I did learn during this shopping trip, however, that I should not be allowed to talk to strangers. I’m pretty sure I told the saleswoman that I planned on “tasting the rainbow” (because I bought this shirt in so many bright colors) – obviously and that it’s a good thing I “couldn’t wear all of the shirts at once.” I’m a conversationalist.
I got to be a real adult last Friday night and got to celebrate this girl’s birthday!
Next time I might actually do my hair!
I might have only had one drink (which was amazing – I finally got to enjoy an Eola 101! I need to recreate this at home) and got home by 10:30, but it was good to get out and not think about anything baby related for a little while. I’m not 100% sure I formed coherent sentences or had a lot to offer to any conversations, but hey I was out.
I’m a little obsessed with the Sabra Garden Humus and carrots.
In fact, I might be eating it right now.
I have scary, scary dark circles under my eyes from lack of sleep (don’t believe me? check out yesterday’s selfies.) and in effort not to scare people outside of my house I have been using this concealer under my eyes.
I am not on the whole organic train (I love pesticides in my body) – but this bottle wine was 2 for $10 at Publix on Sunday — and who am I to pass up a deal like that?
For those who can’t read the tiny label that says Natura Cabernet Sauvignon.
I only bought two bottles because that’s all that was left. I totally need to stop by again soon to see if this deal is still going on because a) it was really good for cheap wine and b) I am all about stocking up, especially since I drink a glass and then pass out. I know it’s not going to be like that forever. I know I’ll be back to drinking an entire bottle in one sitting soon (I’d say I was kidding, but we all know I would be lying). I really should have sought out deals like this while I was pregnant – but I felt weird buying wine in bulk.
So yeah, it’s the little things that get me through the days (and nights!).
What are some of your favorite things?
