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.
