I feel like I haven’t done a life update in forever! I’ll be honest, I’ve been struggling lately with how much is too much to put on my blog. As I’ve grown, it has been something I have had a harder time with. Putting yourself out there for the world to judge can be difficult, but ultimately, I don’t care about myself as much as I do my kids. I did promise myself that if I wanted to continue blogging (which I do) I have to be open and honest with y’all. So, these are just a few things going through my head. I know a lot of other bloggers who struggle with this, and you can’t be too careful these days. I am also thinking of doing a post on ways to keep your family safe as you blog through life. Would you guys be interested in seeing that? Let me know! It can be tricky when your life is your work and your work is your life. They intertwine for me and it is hard to not show my kids because they ARE my life. At the same time, it gets scary sometimes. If you’re a blogger, how do you deal with it?
Hampton is turning FOUR next week. I mean, where did my little baby go? He is so smart and amazes us all the time. He is also so good with Weston – who will be turning ONE in two weeks. I am so not ready for that. Like, super emotional mommy over here. Pass the tissues. We are getting ready for their party next weekend and Hamp is beyond excited! Weston…doesn’t really have a clue what’s going on, but that’s okay. He will enjoy the cake. 😉
Ryan started a new job a little over a month ago and things have been nuts since then. All of us are adapting to a new schedule and routine. I have also realized how spoiled I was before with all of his photography hours, that are now not as readily available. We are having to be super strategic.
We are also getting over some sickness that has been in our house. I feel like one or more of us has been sick for a month. I am beyond ready for it to go away. This week, it’s been me and Weston and I don’t have time for that nonsense, so I have been drinking all the medicine balls at Starbucks and choking down Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey (BTW it’s pretty awful).
Now, on to some Friday favorites:
LOFT is having a sale again! Are you starting to catch on why I NEVER pay full price there? Just don’t ever do it because it always goes on sale! So, check out my picks here (I’ve updated it). The Coatigan is a must-have this fall! It is so versatile and goes with everything! And at 40% off you definitely need to snag it!
The Medicine Ball at Starbucks has literally been the only thing to make my throat feel better all week. If you feel like you are getting sick, run grab one! If your local, I already went through the awkward – them not knowing what I’m talking about and having to show them the recipe – thing for you. I’m pretty sure as many as I’ve ordered now, they should know what you’re talking about when you go to order. 😉
The holiday season is fast approaching and I have so many post ideas flowing through my brain right now, but I want to know what YOU want see! If you have any specific gift guides or unique gift ideas or holiday make-up tutorials/ fashion/ home decor, etc. please let me know!
