.Happy Monday! Also, can we stop for a moment and breathe?! It’s almost September! And in my book that means it’s basically the Holidays. I mean really think about it…
- 71 Days Until Halloween
- 94 Days Until Thanksgiving
- 126 Days Until Christmas
And either school has started or is starting real soon for some families. Once that happens you blink and it’s the New Year. Either way it’s my favorite time of year. Be prepared for all things cheesy fall, matching outfits and pumpkin spice. PS I heard a rumor that Pumpkin Spice will be available at Starbucks soon. Anyways, back to reality here. We checked something off our Summer Bucket List, The Fair!!
Friday night we took Rylee and she loved it. We showed up really late and stayed even later. Rylee’s BFF’s were there so she was on cloud nine. Since we got there so late we just walked around but good thing it’s in town this entire week and can go back, and back and back. The one ride Rylee did do was the pony ride.
It was really funny MMR could not handle how fast they were going in a circle. Rylee giggled the entire time. Looks like I can add a pony to the list of things to eventually buy her. Just kidding on that one, I know nothing about horses. Now that I think about it, we will definitely be going back, I only ate corn on the cobb. Since we went really late I was feeling so full from dinner.
We stayed out way too late and then all slept in Saturday. Thank goodness because I was seriously dragging/struggling to keep my eyes open when I first got up. In the afternoon I went and got my eyelashes done! It’s something I’ve been dying to try but was just too scared to pull the trigger. I’m so glad I did. I am in love. Not to sound narcissistic but I caught myself staring at my eyes multiple times yesterday, Now I have another reason to get less ready everyday. Yesterday’s look is brought to you by hair that probably should’ve been washed yesterday (Sunday was a baseball hat day), lashes, and my Lipsense.
Yesterday MMR took Rylee boating with his brother and Rylee’s besties (her cousins). She has been dying to go boating ever since we went camping. Some of her epic tantrums come from me saying no to boating or going camping. I stayed behind to get some things done around the house. Which included writing a couple blog posts, going to Costco and lunch with my mom. I won the productivity award yesterday. So to reward myself…we went to the fair again. I was craving a turkey leg, chicken pita, corn on the cobb, elephant ears and churros. Don’t worry I didn’t eat all of that. But I did get some more corn, a pretzel and then this amazing ice cream. It was so amazing I ate half before taking a picture. Typical.
Some other fun snapshots from the weekend:
**My father-in-law and I have been having a belly competition this pregnancy. I don’t have the heart to tell him I won around 16 weeks.
**On Friday morning my mom came over to help hang things on the walls in the nursery. For the longest time I wracked my brain trying to figure out how to hold both and be able to stand back and look. This is why my mom is so smart. She suggested the self timer and tripod. Now I just need a baby to put in the room.
And now that brings up to Monday. I use to do Motivation Monday every week which included a quote and some goals of mine. This week I am focusing on staying calm/positive. This mindset helped me so much this past week not feel anxious. Which means I’m not obsessing over still being pregnant. My planner is pretty much blank. I really can handle anything that is thrown my way.
I can’t believe I almost forgot to mention this. Today is the Solar Eclipse! People in Idaho have been going nuts over this. Here is Boise we will be in 99.5% totality which is pretty cool. So this morning Rylee and I headed over to my parents to watch it from the pool. Well hopefully we’ll see it from the pool. We got our glasses and our “baby suits” (Rylee’s version of swimming suit) and are ready to go. Have a great Monday!!!
