I am all about working hard during the week and treating myself and my family on the weekends. We love to go get ice cream or go to the pool or splashed or something really fun at the end of every week. It’s like a treat for working so hard or for the kids being extra sweet during the week. We all look forward to it. This summer, it has been challenging for me to keep the kids busy enough so that they aren’t bored while also working. It is something I have been struggling with the last few weeks, so it has meant working a lot of late nights and on the weekends again. I think it is so important to treat yourself often. Keeping life fun and exciting is preferred to just working your life away, right? So, I am working to treat myself and my kids to lots of breaks and fun activities.
5 Ways to Treat Yourself:
ONE. Take the kids to the pool in the morning. This has been something I have loved doing. We go at least 3 to 4 times a week in the mornings while Weston is napping. It is a win for all of us because I start my day off with some relaxation and the kids love going to the pool. Ryan gets some quiet time to work for a couple of hours and I get my tan on! Also, it’s so much cooler in the mornings than in the afternoons and there aren’t a lot of people out there as early as we go, so it is really nice.
TWO. Buy a bright new outfit. I love color and adding a fun new outfit to your closet is a really fun way to treat yourself! Especially if you have a fun summer vacation planned! I recently got this cute little romper and it is so fun and perfect for our upcoming beach trip!
THREE. Go get a manicure or buy a fun new polish that makes you feel good, happy and confident! I always feel better when my nails are painted. It makes me feel more put together.
FOUR. Take a bath or give yourself a spa day! Spa days are not always in our budget, so I enjoy taking a relaxing bubble bath at night after a long day and ending my “me-time” with a facial mask! I always feel good after a little pampering!
FIVE. …as in five words: My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream. These new little My/Mo Mochi Ice cream treats are one of my favorite sweet treats. There are so many flavors and they are so delicious and the perfect summertime snack! These bite size snacks are perfect to take to the pool, enjoy on the porch and eat anytime, anywhere!
