Well, that was a nice break–from blogging, from posting to social media on a regular basis, from real life. . . My husband and I even snuck in a weekend trip to Aruba (thanks to the Marriott resort and my parents who watched the kids!), and we got home the night before the twins started kindergarten. So here I am. All five kids in school and 124 projects I want to start at one time. I wonder if I’ll ever get to the point of sitting and eating bonbons. I’m not seeing that in my immediate future. . .
A few of the good things I discovered during August:
I have officially deemed these my “happy pants”. The softest, most comfortable sleep pants I’ve owned–and you can totally get away with wearing them to school drop off. I just ordered a second pair because it makes me sad when mine are in the laundry.
I don’t read a ton of nonfiction but I loved this book. The small things really are the big things.
Adding this to our living room because who doesn’t want a head planter?! Extra discount codes available through tonight.
And, my pagoda mirror is also on sale with an extra 20 and 10% off through tonight. . .
This one is random, but I have a 13-almost-14-year-old boy who is allergic to any pants that don’t have an elastic waistband (mentally allergic, not literally allergic 🙄) and maybe you do, too. We ordered these shorts from Amazon Essentials (for school)–men’s sizes and the price is right.
If you’re jumping on the hoop trend, I’ve been wearing these a lot.
I’ve had this song on repeat. Love the words. We can’t mess up too badly, and that’s a really good thing.
