HI GUYS.  I know I’ve been radio silent this week – it was a busy one and I spent a lot of time running around.  When I wasn’t doing that, I was taking a moment to breathe.  Or sleep.  So you know, the usual.

  • From the department of Lives That Are Difficult, I haven’t had a PTO day in a month.  Thankfully, I have a handful (okay, two handfuls) strategically scattered throughout August, September, October and November.  And then it’s Thanksgiving-Hanukkah-Christmas and then Little Critter will be here.  I can be strong!
  • Last night I bought a couple of maxi skirts from Target after realizing that we had two casual days in a row this week and I had worn the same two maxi dresses for all of our casual days over the last month.  This is yet another trend (like maxi dresses) that I am two or three years late to join.  Anyway, they seem comfy and I am lead to believe that they are a “forgiving” garment.
  • From the department of superficial stuff that went down at my monthly appointment yesterday, my NP cleared the Celestial Seasonings Fruit Teas for drinking.  I had sidelined them when I got pregnant because something something herbal teas it is hard to know what is safe and what is not, but now that we’re into second trimester, I was ready to add a little more variety into my day.  Vanilla Rooibos is great, but I used to have a good tea schedule that went something like 7:30 AM Vanilla Rooibos, 9:00 AM Fruit Tea, 10:00 AM Green Tea (until I stopped drinking it because it tastes like trash) or more Fruit Tea.  It was splendid.    Raspberry Zinger is still a no, but Blueberry, Wildberry, Cherry and Peach are all a yes!
  • This weekend I am headed off to a bachelorette party-cabin weekend-extravaganza for one of my best girlfriends.  The maid of honor and I (I am the matron of honor) planned the weekend and I am so, so, so ready to get to the cabin we rented and just unwind.  I love hosting people and throwing parties, but planning events always gives me a little case of anxiety because like any hostess I just want everyone to have fun!  This is why three years ago I decided to set a birthday theme of “cake and champagne” for the rest of my life.

  1. Enjoy the cabin bachelorette! Those are my favorite kinds of parties because every can relax and doesn’t have something else to get to.

  2. Yes, cake and champagne is not only celebratory, it can cure anything. 😉
