I’ve never done this here on my blog, so I’ll quickly explain the below post, where I TAKE TIME OUT FOR THETA MOM THURSDAY! Theta Mom is one of my favorite bloggity blogs, about a fabulous mom and her journey through motherhood. Every Thursday she challenges us blogging mama’s to write about how we took 1 hour of time over the last week to do whatever we want….WITHOUT the kiddos (and also link up on her blog to meet other mommy’s & see how they spent their time out).
So, on Wednesday, after dropping Ella off at pre-school, I dragged myself to the gym to get my work-out on in Body Pump class. Now, even though this is kind of an hour I had to myself, it’s not the ‘me time’ I want to write about. Because after the gym (and feeling very proud of having pushed myself through class despite a serious lack of motivation), I hopped on over to one of my all time favorite place – the King of Prussia Mall. For those not familiar with this shopping lover’s paradise, the KOP mall is HUGE and has just about every store imaginable (I believe it ranks among the country’s largest shopping centers). I always say that if you can’t find what you’re looking for in KOP, well, then you might as well give up. I was able to hit up Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Women & Kid’s sale and found some phenomenal deals, like a pair of Juicy velour cargo-style bottoms for almost 50% off regular price….LOVES IT! They also had some fab 7 For All Mankind (which we all know fit AMAZINGLY well) on sale, which I totally should have snatched up…but alas, I ran out of time (and kept my trip a bit more budget friendly) & had to head on out to pick up the peanut.
Hopefully I’ll have another opportunity for some ‘time out’ next week!
I'm your not-so-typical SAHM to an amazing, brilliant little girl and wife to a pretty great guy who just happens to adore us! By sharing my (somewhat random) musings on this beautiful mess that is our life, I hope to take an honest look at the often crazy reality of being a mama/wife/girly girl/frugalista, all the while making sure I've got my lip gloss on & feeling fabulous! Please feel free to email me with any questions - thanks for stopping by!
