So my mom is one of those Superhumans.
She can get more done in a half a day than I can in a week.
The woman bore 9 children.
When she writes a “to-do” list she literally just does everything on the list…one after the other…until it’s DONE?!
I have, to my knowledge, never accomplished such a feat in my entire existence.
Sometimes when I see her (or any of the other Supers) bustling around making everything great for everyone and I’m just, you know, in pajamas on the couch cleaning boogers off my baby, I start to feel like a loser. That looks harsh in my post but I promise, it sounds even harsher in my head.
Today was one of those days. Where everything I do seems small and irrelevant and everything I don’t seems vast and suffocating. I just start to think, why even try?
But then, randomly…luckily… I stumbled on this video and it really struck a cord.
It made me feel a lot better.
Maybe it’s not so bleak after all:)
I thought I’d share just incase any of you beautiful ladies were feeling the same way.
I know so many of you have encouraged me and then went about your day never knowing how much I needed to hear that or how much it meant to me.
When I find something this pretty and well made at forever21 I feel like it needs to be shared in a very real way! This one I was pretty stoked on.
Nick is so funny about maxi- dresses. He just doesn’t understand me wanting to cover up my ENTIRE LEG (heaven forbid), especially when I’m wearing a dress. So this dress is perfect because it feels like a maxi but still has a little bit of skin showing…which also doesn’t hurt in the middle of the raging heat!
So…it’s not Monday. I’m so sorry about that! Billy got sick and a few days later I got saddled with the same thing (a really bad head cold) and that totalled about a week of terrible sleep and a stuffed up foggy head and got me BEHIND on pretty much everything. Gone are the days when getting sick was bad but it was also a little good because it meant skipping work & cozying up on the couch to some chick flicks. Instead it’s about slothing around the house making pathetic attempts at entertaining a 10 month old and napping at the same time. Which – turns out – isn’t possible.
Monica is such a beautiful woman. She has my favorite mix of brown eyes + freckles that I can’t get enough of!
I has so much fun playing up those brownies and giving her a 1000 watt glow!
Last year I was big old pregnant during this sale and I had some SERIOUSLY high hopes about what I would fit into come fall…”Baby weight? It all comes off in the hospital, right?” Wrong. I had to return/save for later pretty much everything I bought. So this year I’m definitely gonna take advantage and ya know, buy things that fit me.
I know I might be a little late on this for all you fancy “card holders” who got in on the sale early but I cannot be trusted with Nordstrom cards. So to me the sale starts today! Hurry and get the cute stuff cause it goes fast!
I had a really hard time narrowing down my favorites but here’s what I loved the most!
1. Hourglass Kit. (fav primer & LOVE this lip & liner! Haven’t tried the mascara yet but I have high hopes based on the look of it:) 2. Bobbi Brown Kit. I’ve been dying to get my hands on this palette so now is the time! I know I would use every single color. The eye liner is one of my #1’s so that’s a no brainer. 3. Laura Mercier Chubby eye sticks. I am a huge fan of these. They are such pretty colors and perfect for a quick on-the-go eye.
