Life Lately #3

Welcome to the new site! My husband is amazing and has spent like three solid days revamping this. He even has his own little corner of the blog (check out ‘career’ to hear from him) and I’m so excited to share my space with him.

On to our life lately, it’s as busy and hectic as ever. Four jobs between the two of us and an almost eight month old has us running ragged, but I wouldn’t change a thing.

Currently reading: Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis. To. Die. For. I’m sure you’ve seen it all over the internet and let me tell you the hype is right. Every chapter speaks to the depths of my soul and inspires me so deeply. She is such an inspiration to me as a mom, writer, and human and I suggest giving this book a read. The chapter I read last night was about embracing your chaos instead of trying to fight it or run from it. Working on that today. Dishes not done? Big whoop. I’m gonna write and watch movies and read and workout and play with CW and not worry about being perfect. Perfect is boring anyway. And hard.

Sadly, the keto diet has been brought to a halt in this house. I wasn’t seeing the changes I wanted and I was so full of cheese I was about to scream. Plus, I’m paying for Weight Watchers so I decided to go back to that. I’m on a medication that has the unfortunate side effect of weight gain, and my doctor noticed that the other day. Yay for me. Weight always has been and always will be a struggle for me and I’m just doing my best to combat that right now. Life ain’t easy at 5″ 3′ either. Especially with these thighs that God and my father blessed me with.

In other news, as pictured McDonald’s iced coffee is about half the price and {almost} as good as Starbucks so that’s my new vice. I had some mama alone time at the grocery store yesterday and treated myself to the $2.19 nectar of the gods. It was blissful and I took my sweet time. I’ll be doing a post on self-care and refilling your cup soon. Be on the lookout.

After the grocery store trip, our menu this week will be a chicken enchilada bake, chicken tortilla soup, personal pizzas, turkey pumpkin chili and some other random easy meals thrown in there – all WW friendly! I’ll share recipes in the “health” section of this page.

Cooksey is waking up from his nap now so I’m gonna go snuggle him, but thanks for stopping by! If there is anything you want to read about please leave comments and let a sister know. All my love!
