Funny, but my stories about taking some time for MYSELF always tend to revolve around shopping…and this one is no different. It’s short, sweet & to the point.
The peanut was sleeping this past Sunday afternoon, so while the hubby stayed home with her, I went out to Marshall’s/Home Goods, by MYSELF! Spent half an hour looking for some accessories for Ella’s new ‘big girl’ room. Didn’t find anything, so naturally I shifted the focus to MYSELF and went to try on some clothes. After another half hour, I ended up buying a cute shirt (for $4.99!!!) and a fabulously pink, fitted yoga-style top for the gym. Left the store not with what I was originally looking for, but with a little somethin’ somethin’ for MYSELF….what else is new! Finally, I headed over to Acme and enjoyed a leisurely grocery trip ALL BY MYSELF (and if you’re a mom, you know just how delightful such a trip is WITHOUT KIDS)!
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!
