Oh my goodness, the forecast for this week makes me SO HAPPY! It is 72 degrees outside right now, and the next 10 days are all in the 70s too! Sunshine and warmth is what the doctor ordered to get me out of this funk and feeling alive again. I'm wearing cutoff jean shorts, a tank top, and a swipe of bronzer; it genuinely impacts my mood.
TWO:: coinciding naptimes
BOTH girls are napping at the same time right now and I am LOVING it. This morning has been a little stressful; I sold a couple of pairs of maternity jeans on eBay (YAY!) and when I went to print the shipping label, I realized my printer's power cord had gotten fried from the electrical surge earlier this week. AGH!!!! All this is to say, I have otherwise utilized nap time for eating solo, putting on my makeup in peace, and now blogging. Hallelujah!
THREE:: it's the weekend!
Well, almost. We don't have any weekend plans, but we'll see our couple-friends tomorrow evening (we have an every-other-weekend standing date) and it looks like beautiful weather. Maybe a trip to the zoo is in order?!
I got a random call earlier this week from my local barre3 studio that they were adding 3 free classes to my account because I haven't been in in a while. This is extremely exciting to me since I've been on a postpartum exercise freeze and will be able to start back up in the next couple of weeks! God tends to put opportunities with this barre studio (my favorite!!) into my life at the perfect time, so we'll see what's in store!!!
Oh, postpartum self-care... how elusive you are! I've been on virtual home arrest trying to keep the baby from getting sick, so we haven't really left the house since mid-February (besides going to Mom & Dad's, or the occasional doctor's appointment, etc). We're now reaching the point where AnnaCate can go out and it's less terrifying. But in the meantime, Drew let me run out by myself after Lilly's bedtime Wednesday night. I hit up Trader Joe's (for beaucoups of wine and nuts and random groceries) and Target (and got a tank top, bralette, and AnnaCate's easter basket!)... it's the little things that make you feel sane and energize you. I have an actual GIRLS' NIGHT scheduled for next Wednesday that I'm very much looking forward to, too.
Okay, both girls are now crying in their beds... off to say sayonara to my peaceful nap time quiet!
