Life lately is… crazy. The best kind of crazy but this week, it feels like I am struggling to keep up!
This past week, or I guess month, has felt like it has been non stop. Work, be a mom, be a wife, cook dinner, prep meals, blog, and be involved on social media. Holy cow! There are not enough hours in the day. Anyone else feel me?
Typically mornings are my “me time.” I wake up between 430 and 5 to drink my coffee, get in a quick workout, get some blog or bookkeeping work finished, and get myself ready for the day. Well, apparently L has caught on to this because he has been up at 430-5 almost every day ready to go! This kid doesn’t like to miss a beat. If something is happening, he wants to be involved. Which I love! But my exercise and work have taken a hit this week!
This weekend, once again, we don’t have much on the radar. I have to work on Saturday (last one for a month!!!!!) and I am hoping to get a visit in with my dad and step mom. We haven’t seen them in far too long and it would be great to get together!
I don’t have too many Friday Favorites for today as it has been a hectic crazy week but, here are the few things I am loving!
Target’s Spring Line:
Oh my gosh when did Target step their fashion line up?! Have I been missing out all along? My shopping has definitely taken a back seat to buying things for L and I just now happened to notice all the cute items they have! I stopped in yesterday and tried on this super cute long sleeved romper, this flowy embroidered dress, and some workout gear. So much to love! So little need for almost all of it. I did score a pair of leggings for $8 though and all Massimo women’s clothing was 20% off with the Cartwheel app so I call that a win!
My mom has always told me that people remember or believe in things more when they see them written down. When I was 14 my mom had told me for a year she was moving to California. I guess I never really listened because one day I saw it written on the fridge calendar and ran to her screaming “your moving to California?!?” So, this little box reminds me of her. I found it at Francesca’s Boutique recently and immediately had to buy it!
Chia Pudding has been my savior these first few days of Whole 30. It is naturally sweet from the coconut milk and reminds me of yogurt. L and I can still share breakfast when I make this and it was easy to prep ahead of time for our busy mornings. To make, I just mixed a little less then 2 cups of coconut milk with 1/3 cup chia seeds and threw it in the fridge over night. It makes about 4 (smaller) servings! I then mix in half a mashed up banana, a few scoops of pumpkin puree, and unsweetened shredded coconut. Top it with more fruit, coconut, and almond butter. L has been loving it too!
Whole 30 so far has been going okay. We are on day 5 and the food is all great but we are both feeling run down and tired. But, that could be for a variety of reasons! We will see how the next few weeks go!
What are your plans for the weekend? I hope it is something great!
How do you deal with life when it gets crazy and chaotic?
