Making My Monday
Well the weekend delivered, my friends. We spent a good chunk of Saturday afternoon parked on the beach and it was just heavenly after this rough winter we’ve had…ha ha. Seriously though, once your kids are past the whole eating sand thing, the beach is the perfect place for a young family. Skater hubs surfed, the kids occupied themselves for hours in the sand with buckets and rocks and shovels and I got to READ A MAGAZINE. As long as you bring snacks and there is a potty nearby, you can spend hours there, relatively stress-free. And we did.
And the week is off to a good start already and it’s not even 10am – here are a few things Making My Monday today:
Catch me if you can! I woke up to an email from a friend in NY who saw this here blog mentioned in the new issue of FOAM Magazine! It’s my first print mention and I couldn’t be more excited!
The inauguration. We never have TV on in the mornings but today was an exception. We tuned in to see the proceedings and it was so cool to see the kids’ reactions to everything:
“I want to do that.” – Little D (5yo) watching President Obama walk in.
“I think I am the First Lady of the United States.” – Little D
“Where’s Jay Z, mama?” – Kai (2yo).
Always nice to share a historical moment with the littles…I still think it’s amazing to watch this generation’s youth enjoy so much exposure to politics and (most) world issues.
House hunting. It’s official. I need change like all the time and the fact that we have been in this house for 2+ years is kind of amazing. We saw a home on the weekend that we really liked and are meeting with a realtor later this week to see if listing ours is a good move right now. I am basically already decorating the new house in my mind (no, not a glutton for punishment at all) so I really hope the meeting goes well!
Another new business meeting tomorrow. Wish me luck.
Finally, a quiet coffee date with a friend scheduled for Thursday. We are meeting right after drop off in the early morning to ensure we don’t let the day’s schedule rob us of some good girlfriend time and I think it’s a smart idea. If we don’t prioritize these things in life, who is going to do it for us, right? It certainly isn’t going to be my daughter…she is going to be busy running for President in 2045.
Happy Monday, friends ~
