Just (the Best) Sales & Mother’s Day Gifts Under $25

Good morning friends!  I noticed an immediate sense of hopefulness when we learned that Houston will slowly start reopening our city on May 1.  There will be lots of rules and restrictions, and places like gyms and hair salons will remain closed for longer, but it’s a start.   We (anyone age 10 and up) are supposed to be wearing masks when out in public throughout the month of May.

This hasn’t really changed my plans and we’re still hanging at home, but I am optimistic and happy about people being able to go back to work.  This quarantine and virus has taken a toll on so many areas of our lives.

Oh man, yesterday was bittersweet!  We celebrated Ali-Shaun’s 40th birthday with a looong car parade and I really just wanted to jump out of the car and hug everyone! We haven’t seen each other in person in what feels like ages.

And seeing Ali-Shaun standing outside her house while all of us just drove past was hard.  40 calls for a big birthday celebration and we wanted to be able to be together for it.  I know lots of you can relate or have had other things like graduations or weddings that have had to be completely cancelled,

Good morning friends!  How’s your week going?  We had Monday off of school, which seems to be making the week go faster.  We’ve been extremely blessed with glorious weather lately, so getting outside has been awesome.  It’s cool in the morning, then very comfortable and sunny in the afternoon without any humidity.  We are loving it!

I’m slowly but surely cleaning, organizing and decluttering my whole house (you can catch the linen closet on Stories), and I’m thinking maybe I should do a blog post showing all the finished work after it’s done.  I haven’t been taking ‘before’

Good morning friends!  Are you hanging in there?  We’re doing pretty good, but I woke up yesterday really craving a more normal routine.  Anyone that has young kids probably can relate.  My 4 year-old doesn’t play well independently – she always wants me to be playing with her and if I’m being honest, it’s exhausting!  Also, she doesn’t nap!  After a full day of her nipping at my heels, I’m so worn out.  Makes me want to run and hide in the bathroom sometimes, but even that room isn’t sacred.  Please tell me I’m not alone!

BOOTY WORKOUT

Best Sales | March Loves Winner | How to Deal with Our New Normal

Hello friends!  Thank God March is over, but now we’re into April and it’s looking like more of the same for the near future.  Our shelter in place order was extended yesterday to the end of April with school closed until May 4.  😳Before that, I briefly considered heading to my friend’s lake house since it’s sitting empty, but, ultimately decided it’s not the right time, so we stayed put.

Instead, this is us, on day whatever . . .  James is eating Doritos for breakfast and Jordan refuses to take off her construction goggles. Mama lost count on her coffee consumption.

Hi friends! How are y’all doing?  As much as I’m trying to stay positive and active, I still find I’m in a weird place.  Yesterday morning I started out in a funk.  Houston residents have been ordered to shelter in place until at least April 3.  That means only “essential workers” whose job is essential to the health and safety of the community are supposed to leave the house. Everyone else is ordered to stay home and work from home.  We can go to the park, but not the playground – and still stay 6 feet away from anyone.

Hello friends! How are things going for you?  We learned yesterday that our school will be closed until April 13, which means 4 weeks off (including our current week of Spring Break).  Some Spring Break, right?!  Obviously, my girlfriend and I cancelled our trip to Puerto Rico, but I’m hopeful we’ll get to make that happen someday.

I woke up to a lovely message on my friend Mia’s instagram, and I thought I’d share it here because it offered a new perspective and I felt much more peaceful with this frame of mind:

I hope it blesses you too.

Good morning friends!  I’m the proud mama of a 10 year-old today!  Sweet baby James isn’t much a baby anymore.  In fact, he’s growing up to be a thoughtful, kind hearted, creative, funny and smart young man.  We are super close and I pray it stays that way throughout this next phase of his life!

Good morning friends!  How’s your week going?  I crossed a major ‘to do’ off my list yesterday when I got my driver’s license renewed! Such a pain, but so necessary!  I was able to make an appointment online so I didn’t have to wait in the regular 2-3 hour line!

Now, we’re looking at Go Texan Day on Friday and it will be so cute to see the kiddos dressed up in their western wear!  If you need something western for yourself, check out this Amazon post.  There’s some good things in there (including boots) and they are PRIME!

Hi friends! Wednesday sure snuck up on me!  It’s been so crazy and jam packed lately with Valentine’s Day and Jordan’s birthday and now my own birthday is tomorrow!!! I can’t believe Jordan is 4 and that I will be 45!  But, I’m so very grateful and truly feel that the 40s are soooo good!  How old are you if you don’t mind me asking? I’d love to know in the comments below!  Shout it out!

Good morning friends!  With Monday being a holiday, yesterday was a rough start.  Both of my kids that are typically early risers did not want to wake up!  They were all in my bed wayyy too long and then we were running late.  I hate those kind of stressed, rushed mornings.

And on the way to school, Jordan is so oblivious, asking/demanding, “Mom, can we listen to music??  I can’t hear it.  Turn it up!”

Girlfriend.  Just let me focus on driving in rush hour traffic and getting us there in one piece!

But,

Good morning friends!  Yay for mid-week!  It’s usually the toughest day of the week here after going hard Monday and Tuesday, and so you know how I make it easier?  Leftovers!  Yep, I’m declaring Wednesdays leftovers night.  Leftovers or slow cooker, whatever’s easier!

And actually, if I’m in a rut with my meal planning or super busy, I’ve been doing:

Meatless Monday (usually roasted veggies)

Taco Tuesday (any Mexican variety) or Italian

Leftover Wednesdays

Dad’s choice Thursdays

Pizza & Movie night Fridays

How simple is that?

Hi friends!  Happy Wednesday, Day 2 of back-to-school for us.  So far, I’m liking this get up and go attitude, and I’m also on a much needed slim down plan.  I’m blaming Rhonda’s cookies! 😉

When I get off track, I like to use My Fitness Pal to track my eating for a good week to help keep me accountable for what I eat.  I have some holiday pounds to lose, so I’m gonna up my workout intensity and try to hit certain macros for the rest of January and then reassess.  Any of you there with me?

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday!  We had a looong day yesterday!  I tried to get me and the kids a good night sleep, but Jordan had other plans.  So, needless to say, I was exhausted all day yesterday (extra coffee please!!!) and then we had an unexpectedly long dental visit after school.  Leftovers for dinner and call it a night!

Thankfully, I got some good sleep last night, which really helps!  We’re off to the bookstore today for the annual school book fair and that’s always a fun event.  Speaking of fun events, I’m so glad y’all enjoyed our Favorite Things Recap
