We went to Pearl last night with some friends, and I had just gotten this dress in the mail. It is PERFECT!! I highly recommend getting it for the end of summer and as a layering piece for fall. I got so many compliments on it last night, it’s a classic and under $100.
Hi Girlies, Happy Monday! There is obviously nothing like the weekend when we’re all around, but boy do I love routine. The older I get, the more I love it. Even though in the summer we don’t really have a strict one, I love being able to set an agenda for the day and week (albeit with kids that’s always hit or miss) but at least it’s a plan! This week’s weather is supposed to be gorgeous so my main goal is to be outside enjoying it with Brian + Grace. I’ve been really busy this summer with work, so I’m going to try and take it easier for the rest of the summer this and just soak up the time with them. We’ll probably be at the pool and/or beach everyday and I’m going to try and squeeze in a couple mini-adventures like trips to our local aquarium and nature center, maybe the blueberry farm, cute stuff like that. My mom is around so I’m sure she’ll tag along which is always nice.
I think I’ll try and get back to a gym routine, too! I’ve been doing the bootcamp and TRX classes at our gym which kick my tush and then meeting with Bradley Fitness once or twice per week. I always feel so much better when I’m actively working out so right now I’m going to say Tuesday-Friday! Our gym is a part of the pool club we go to and they have babysitting from 9-2 and Grace loves going, she loves the babysitter and being with the other kids. Which reminds me, I need to find a 2’s program for her. Brian will be at school from 9-1 Monday-Friday so I’m hoping to drop Grace somewhere a few mornings/week so she can get some socialization.
Hmm what else for this mama…Oh, on Thursday night I’m going to an Anthropologie party in NYC which should be fun! I’m going with Lindsey from The Fashionably Broke Teacher and Lauren McBride. I’m really looking forward to that! I also have to start planning for New York Fashion Week. I just got a calendar with all of the shows and need to schedule which ones I’ll attend, where I’m staying, who is going, etc…A bunch of us bloggers have an active group on facebook where we chat about that stuff so I’ll see what the others are thinking!
I’d REALLY like to get a pedicure in, maybe I’ll have my mom sit for an hour and get there, my toes are atrocious.
K that’s it, time to get these kids ready for the pool! I’ll be back tomorrow for Ten Things Tuesday. Trying to get more organized with my content calendar, too, an on going project 🙂
Oh one more thing, I’m trying to find some help with my blog so I guess I’ll be putting a formal job description together. It’s going to be structured more like a paid internship but the main tasks will be > social media, newsletter, help with the rewardstyle platform I use to store all my product finds, graphic design, etc…If you know of anyone who might be interested in this sort of thing, let me know or have them email me, firstname.lastname@example.org.
