*We're currently driving past the exit to my alma mater... I SO wish we could go to the football game tomorrow to watch the Tigers woop up on my hub's team, the Deacs! In fact, I don't even think we'll be in a position to WATCH the game tomorrow, which is gonna drive me crazy!
*We've been listening to the song "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" on repeat for almost two hours. I was thisclose to buying and chugging a beer during our last gas station pit stop.
*I CANNOT believe my nephew, Banks, is going to be FOUR this weekend!! I remember so vividly visiting him in the hospital when he was born. He taught me a whole new way to love... he's the little boy who made me an aunt, who added a whole new dimension to our family tree and made every get-together more memorable and meaningful. Happy Birthday, little buddy!
*I am LOVING my new part-time job!!
*I'm getting antsy with our house and the decor... I want to totally change some things up, but don't even know where to start! I'm terrible at stuff like that.
*A little over a month ago, I stopped running per doctors' suggestions. I've been walking instead. I've definitely enjoyed slowing down a bit, "enjoying the view" a little more and pounding the pavement a little less. But I've noticed my clothes fitting tighter and things being a little more jiggly. Given our current situation, it's actually not a BAD thing. But no woman feels like that is a GOOD thing. And speaking of the jiggle, I am CRAVING a fast food cheeseburger! Ha!!
*My little girl is going to be TWO in less than two weeks!! As all mamas say, the time has FLOWN by. And I really am soaking in every second of every age and stage. I have to say we're having a blast with the current one.
*And speaking of the little birthday-girl-to-be, the big bash is three weeks out and I am a little worried about getting everything taken care of. As I've mentioned before, I have ZERO motivation to throw a Pinterest-inspired party, but feel such pressure from the current social norms. As long as my girl is smiling and eating cake, I will consider the party a smashing success.
*Welcome back, fall television! Oh how we've missed you!!
*I wish I could go to acupuncture everyday. It truly leaves me feeling SO relaxed and at peace.
*I am loving my new Costco membership! Especially the free samples. Hello, free Saturday lunch!
*I got CK's Halloween costume at a consignment store the other day. With our current budget, I just wasn't willing to spend $30+ on something she'll wear for a couple hours. I don't LOVE her costume, but it was only $6 and I know she'd look cute in a brown paper bag. I can't WAIT to see the montage of kids in Halloween costumes on Facebook!
*And speaking of Facebook, I've been trying to take a bit of a social media break these days. Instagram doesn't bother me as much, but sometimes Facebook is just too much, ya know? Comparison is the thief of joy, and sometimes I let my joy get stolen too often. Sad, but true.
*We bribe Cameron with M&Ms. To do any and everything.
Ok, time to go order that cheeseburger! Yippee!!!! Have a great weekend!
