Do you ever just want to sit down with someone and start saying whatever comes to mind? It doesn’t have to be a full conversation, just little rants and observations from the long days of motherhood. That’s what today’s about; let me share with you what’s in my head right now. Pull up a chair with me and your favorite cup of coffee. Is it a straight black coffee? Hot mocha? Maybe a frappe (my favorite)? Do you have a favorite mug? If not, you might by the end of this post where some friends and I announce a Mug Love Exchange we’d love for you to be a part of!
-My poor Allison still won’t stop talking about the smoke detectors. They went off a couple months ago and she’s got PTSD now or something. Who knew you needed to clean them out every so often to keep spiders/cobwebs out? Maybe it’s just our house.
-Why does September seem to be the busiest month? I’m almost afraid to think of what it’ll be like starting in October, with birthdays and then the holidays right after.
-Have you guys tried Larabar snack bars? Holy cow, these are the best things in existence. They have a simple fruit and nut bar that has ZERO added sugar but are so delicious. Their peanut butter cookie flavor ingredients are: Peanuts, dates, sea salt. That’s it.
-This week I’m running around like crazy trying to get things done at home, for MOPS, church events… I think I’m gonna sleep for a whole week after this.
-I realized the other day that I’ve hit 10,000 steps every day since April. Crazy! Even if it meant I had to run in place for a few minutes before bed because I suddenly realized I was 400 steps away from my goal.
-I’m putting together a Snow White-themed birthday party for Allison. I asked her if she wanted Snow White on her cake, and she said “Nope, Prince Charming.” I think I know where her priorities are.
Now for the fun stuff! My friend Stephanie from Wife, Mommy, Me has put together a Mug Love Exchange. If you choose to participate, you’ll be paired up with someone and you’ll each purchase a mug for each other! I can’t wait to see who I get paired up with and get creative with my mug purchase. Sign-ups close September 14th and partners will be emailed September 16th. You’ll have until September 30th to mail your mug, and make sure you come back October 10th to post your new mug on Instagram plus enter an amazing GIVEAWAY for something to fill that new mug of yours! I can’t wait!
