Well, hello there! Long time, no blog.
I totally didn’t mean to take an almost two week break without saying so, but it just kind of happened. Almost every day for a while now, I’ve meant to write a blog post but it just isn’t happening. Like I said recently, blogging is kind of on the back burner now and I’m okay with that. When I’m in a less busy season, I know it’ll always be here.
Anyway, let’s “have coffee” and catch up, shall we?
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you…
That I’m sitting on my new couch as I write this post and I love it. We were in desperate need of a new couch, as our old one was fake leather that was peeling off all over and just gross. We ordered this couch a while ago as a special order. It wasn’t expected to come in until at least mid October, but could have taken up to December to get here. I am so happy it came early!
I’ve already gotten quite a few comments on the color and what a
bad decision bold choice a light color is with a toddler. This photo (which keeps failing to upload to this post right now, sorry!) washes it out pretty badly – it’s not white but grey. But it did turn out much lighter seeing it on the couch than the swatch in the store was. Either way, I love it and will be investing in a good stain remover for sure.
I’m loving the stage Claire is in right now. I was struggling at the beginning of her entrance to toddler-hood. Having a completely mobile and crazy kid was hard for a while to get used to and because we had just moved, our new space was anything but baby-proofed in the unpacking stage.
Her current favorites are calling every animal “doggy,” the ABC’s song (to which she says “E O” the entire time, so cute), sharing food with us at all times (and not eating what’s on her own plate, even if it’s the same), and learning where body parts are like her belly and head.
I feel like she’s adjusted better to our home and new routine so she’s doing better, but I’ve also adjusted to her new antics and feel like I’m enjoying motherhood more now than I was a few months ago.
I haven’t been working out much and I need to badly! My old routine was to work out in the morning when Claire had her first morning naps. Naps have been so hit or miss lately that I can’t always count on that these days. I also don’t like working out at home as much since we don’t have AC and I get so hot sometimes.
I’m hoping to try out a gym near me with childcare so I can start lifting again like I was in the spring. I enjoyed that so much because I saw great results and got some me time away from Claire that left me recharged. My eating has been pretty sub-par lately too. I always eat better if I’m exercising more, so I know that’ll be a win-win for me.
I’m going on a super fancy date night tonight and I can’t wait. My husband’s work has a formal dinner tonight that I have a fun fancy evening dress for. I’m excited to have a night out all dressed up.
Have a nice weekend, and I’ll try to actually be here next week! 😉
