one. the Tory Burch Minnie.
I know SO many people who say that they don’t like Tory Burch Revas because they are uncomfortable. Well, have I got the shoe for you!!! The Tory Burch Logo Minnie Travel Ballet Flat is amazing, and quite possibly the most comfortable shoe I now own. Brandon gave me the French Gray pair (pictured above) for Christmas and I have literally worn them every day to school this week.
two. a different kind of NYE.My parents’ best friends live on a lake in Rhode Island and we all drove up for the night. We spent NYE at a 3 hour dinner with our party of 11… and then watched P.Diddy and Mase take us back to the 90s at Pitbull’s NYE countdown concert. Annabelle slept soundly upstairs like a cherub while we sang and danced our hearts out in the living room. The boys and the adults played some college drinking games at a bonfire by the lake. Matching pjs, Prosecco, and awkward sister dancing is what the last night of every year should look like.
three. dirty hands.
Annabelle tried pancakes for the first time at my Mom’s house. She was all about the butter and none of the pancake or the syrup. She was very bothered by the stickiness and insisted we washed her hands after every time she touched her fork. Am I the only one with a toddler who doesn’t like to get her hands dirty?? Well… unless it’s marker – then she is down to get dirty.
four. something that is already not my favorite.
HOW DO YOU WORKING MOMS HAVE TIME TO EXERCISE? Gosh – something I used to love is now my enemy. I despise you exercise, in that kind of way that you hated the boy you really liked in 7th grade just because he wouldn’t look at you. One of my resolutions for the new year was to start working out again, but seriously – I have no time. I get some pushups in while A is in the bathtub, or some squats while I brush my teeth, but actual cardio is nonexistent. I get home from work around 5:45 and have to make dinner, make lunches, do the dishes, get A ready for bed, clean up a bit, and then I am spent. By 8:30- 9:00 pm I am in bed and immobile. I struggle to wake up at 5am, so there is no way in heck I could get up any earlier to work out.
Any recommendations on how I can get some exercise time in?
five. hey Mister Mister. I just have to give some love to one of my forever Friday favorites. I don’t talk about Brandon a lot on here anymore – or maybe I never really did – since he would prefer I don’t blast his face all over the blog. However, I have to give him a shoutout because after all the crap I went through last year, this guy didn’t leave my side. He stood right next to me and held my hand through everything. One of these days I will get around to blogging about our trip to Napa, which was totally his idea because he knows how much I love my wine and how badly I needed an escape from reality. He’s a good one – a good husband, father, and friend – and I love him to pieces.
