What I’m reminiscing about…

Cutting Jacob’s hair for the first time at his birthday and haircut ceremony. I can’t believe we finally cut his hair!!

What I’m loving…

Jacob has been phasing out of naps. Even though this stay at home mama loves nap time, I’m kind loving not having to worry about being home for his nap time. My babies are growing up!

What we’ve been up to…

May was lot’s of fun! My mom came for visit in the beginning of the month, we celebrated Jacob’s 3rd birthday, I celebrated Mother’s day with a fun fulled day of activities, we attended 3 birthday parties, I went on a Motherhood Walk with my friend Eynav, we celebrated and baked cheesecake for Shavout, a Jewish holiday, sang karaoke for Cheryl’s, Sarah completed 1st grade, Jacob and I attended our last mommy and me, we said bye to my mother-in-law as she moved on to new adventures and ended the month with a family trip to Vegas. Phew! It was a busy month!

What I’m dreading…

Potty training!!! I know i’ve been talking about doing it a few times, but time never felt right. However with preschool starting in September he needs to be fully potty trained before he starts school so this mama has some work to do. Any tips? I dread this part of being a mama. What I’m working on…

Catching up on my blog life. I have a huge to do list and a several drafts. This summer I’m hoping to really focus on my blog.

What I’m excited about…

Summer concerts with the family. Aside from hanging by the pool most of the summer our family loves hanging out at the park, playing, bringing a picnic and hanging out while listening to music. What I’m watching/reading…

Sarah and I are back at it with watching our favorite baking competitions. This time we are watching Best Baker in America. So good!and I’m still watching my usual, Southern Charm and Real Housewives of NYC. CAN’T.GET.ENOUGH!

Trusting a sitter to watch our kids is very hard for me. However hubby and I need to get out and have some adult conversations every so often. So when our sitter started a new job she was no longer available. After searching for a few months I am happy to report that we found a babysitter! It was a long process, but she’s watched the kids once this past month and all went well. Can’t wait to plan more outings with hubby. What I’m dreading…

Potty training Jacob. He will be 3 in April and it’s kinda sorta time, but ugh! I really don’t like this part of parenting.

See my potty training system here.

What I’m working on…

Cleaning out every corner and every hole! I’m going through a major haul over here. I have the women’s shelter pick up my big loads, but have recently heard about Give Back Box. You request a label on their site and then print it at home. See more here.

What I’m dreading…

Looking for a new babysitter. Our babysitter got a job and is no longer available to watch the kids. It took J a long time to trust our sitter so I’m worried it’s going to take a long time once again.

What I’m working on…

Self care. It’s so so hard for me to take care of my self. Sure I take the time to go out with my girlfriends here and there but scheduling an appointment for myslef or getting things done for myself has become so hard. I have waves where I take care of my self and then months go by and I haven’t done anything for myself. I’m realty going to try and make those appointments, not cancel them when kids stuff come up and take care of me.

What I’m excited about…

Getting all fancy and wearing these shoes for my sister’s wedding. What I’m watching/reading…

Hubby and I look forward to Thursday nights!

My sister’s wedding!!!!!! Ahhhh I can’t wait!What else is new…

I am loving my laser cut pumpkin I ordreed a few weeks ago. I’m thinking of painting it, but not sure if I should just leave as is. Thought? Question of the month is: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving side dish?

I’m not a huge fan of Thanksgiving food. There I said it.

 I find the food boring and bland. But if I had to pick something it would be the stuffing. I love the endless possibilities.Happy Wednesday!

Color Inspiration {October 2017}

I’m linking up with my friend, Whitney for our monthly Color Inspiration.

If you blogged too make sure you link up at the bottom of the post!

This month we are talking all things BLACK.

ONE

I’m a big fan of hats! I wear them to cover up a messy hair day, it blocks the fun and because I think they are cute. My favorite summer hat is an all BLACK baseball hat from here. I also like wearing a BLACK wide brim hat in the winter from here.

TWO

I’m not much of a make up person, but if I’m going to wear any kind of make up it’s going to be mascara. I usually buy BLACK and switch off between a few brands. Currently I’m using Revlon Dramatic Definition.

THREE

We went to the outlets last week for shoes and I stumbled upon this super cute BLACK bag.

FOUR

I really love a mask after a long day. I don’t get to do it often, but when I do I really enjoy it. Recently I tried the charcoal masks. Its super weird at first. It looks like BLACK paint, but feel so good on. Happy Thursday, friends!
