    THE LEDGER: AUGUST

    Location: in the heat of summer

    If I could use two words to describe this summer, I’d say coffee + wine. I am such a minimal drinker–as in one glass of red when out to dinner, mayyyybe…I drink coffee on the daily, but summer has me downing two cups–one for each kiddo, just kidding, but not really…I’m exhausted! Harlow sleeps from 8:30 at night to about 4:00 a.m. and then he’s up pretty much every half hour from there on. It’s been a struggle. I used the Ferber sleep training method to get him to sleep in his crib, and it has surprisingly worked really well, but if you could solve the 4 a.m. thing for me, that would be the absolute best!

    Anyway, all these 4 a.m. wake up calls and a full schedule has had me drinking way more wine than usual, but I’m not complaining. I’m actually thinking of it like a vacation, since I can’t  go on a real one right now. Anyhow, I thought it would be fun to come up with a ledger of all the things I’m thinking of doing in August, one thing for each day.

    Well, here goes a whole lotta nothin’…

    AUG 01   Sign up for a wine club. I love the branding of Winc, but the concept of Dry Farm Wines. Have you tried either of the two?

    AUG 02   Find a good dress to get me through to October. I really love the chambray options of this one shoulder dressthis belle sleeved dress.

    AUG 03   Have yourself a spoonful of organic peanut butter or almond butter in lieu of dessert.

    AUG 04    Schedule our yearly physicals, eye exams, and bi-annual dental exams before school starts back up again. Read more

    A LITTLE KITCHEN UPDATE WITH SMART TILES!

    As I previously stated, we were going to be moving, and it all happened!!! Most of my absence here can be attributed to the move (which was so stressful) and all the growing pains that come along with big life change. We were able to secure the place we really wanted and spent an entire month moving so, so slowly. I have moved 8 times in the past 6 years. It has been a rollercoaster to say the least, and I am completely ready to stay somewhere for a good while. So cheers to being home sweet home, and I can’t wait to show you more photos! Read more
