Scenes From a Chill Weekend We made zero plans for the long weekend, and just kind of went with the flow. The boys played (and ate and watched their tablets) in their new climbing dome. We went to visit the baby reindeer and feed the big ones. Lawson was convinced the were sheep, and could not be persuaded otherwise 🤣 Our little town had an ice cream shop open up, so obviously we got some ice cream. And this morning, Andrew went golfing so I took the boys to a playground, where they mostly followed squirrels around 🙃 Nothing planned, nothing that had to be done or attended, but still lots of fun. How was your weekend? Did you take it easy or do all the things?

It's like people just can't stop their mouths from moving sometimes. "It must be so nice to be home all the time and be able to keep everything so clean." Uh, no? That very sentence is a contradiction. Math: 1 hour with kids at home in the morning = a bit of mess. All morning with kids at home = all the messes, nonstop. Cleanliness is not a benefit of being a stay at home mom to young children. There are mannnnnny benefits that I love, but that is not one. My kids are at my mom's today, and I'll be cleaning and vacuuming and mopping, and then enjoying nothing being spilled on it for a couple of hours 🙃 #stayathomemom #stayathomemomlife #sahm #momhumor #sahmhumor #momoftoddlers #momof2boys #boymomlife #momproblems #momproblemsbelike #loveourcommunitygrow #momcommunity

👠 SOMEONE ELSE'S SHOES by Jojo Moyes 👠 (contemporary fiction) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I can't stop talking about this one. I loved it so much! If you liked Vera Wong, you'll love this one (no murder in this one though) Nisha is wealthy, stylish, and married to a powerhouse man. But when her bag is mistakenly taken at the gym - with her custom Christian Louboutin shoes - her whole world starts to crumble. Suddenly she finds herself with nothing and no one, and takes a job as a housekeeper at the hotel where she used to occupy the penthouse. Sam, the woman who took the shoes, can barely hold onto the job she has, but her husband is depressed and can't work. When she accidentally ends up with the designer shoes, she finds her life changed. Soon the women find their lives overlapping in hilarious and beautiful ways. The power of women, y'all. I LOVED LOVED LOVED this one. My favorite Jojo Moyes novel to date. Not sad, just funny and entertaining and so so so so good. Also great as an audiobook.

He's at that age where he is doing so many things independently, like riding a bike and swinging and reading and ordering his own food at restaurants And every time he does something new and big and independently, I celebrate out loud with him. I celebrate inside, too, but I also grieve a little bit that he doesn't need my help in that way anymore. It's beautiful and hard; it's brutiful. I'm so lucky to be his mom. I work so hard to be there when he needs me, and I'll work just as hard to stand back when he doesn't 🩷 What new things have your kids done lately that you've both celebrated and grieved? #growingolder #billiannee #alittleolder #motherhoodjourney #momtruth #bittersweetmoment #milestones #lettingthemgrow #motherhoodisbeautiful #brutiful #mydaysofdecor

I spent part of my Mother's Day finishing this audiobook and I had to share my thoughts. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Synopsis: William's family suffers a great tragedy when he is small, and it shapes his parents' treatment of him and his ability to cope. In college, he meets the beautiful and vibrant Julia, and when they get married, he is warmly accepted by her sisters, to whom she is immensely close. But when William's dark past creeps up on him, everything becomes unknown. Everything changes. Suddenly there is an incredible rift between the family, and no one knows if they'll ever be able to close it again. A slow burn family drama; slow, intimate plot details with twists that slam into you out of nowhere. I listened to it on audio, and I don't think that was the best medium for this. It was for sure meant to actually be read. There are slow parts, parts to build up to the big ones, but there are so many parts to savor. Definitely worth a read. TLDR: read this book; don't listen to thr audiobook. How did you send your Mother's Day, if you celebrated? How was your Sunday? #bookworm #booksof2023 #bookreadersofinstagram #readwithme #readersofinstagram #bookrecommendations #bookreveiw #dressingupmydays #hellobeautiful #popularbooks #annnapolitano #tbrlist #tbrpile

6 years ago, we were deep in the infertility trenches for our first child. I wasn't a mom, and I wasn't sure if I ever would be. I eventually told my husband I just couldn't face Mother's Day; while I loved our moms, I just needed to be able to ignore the holiday that year. It was too hard. Since then, we've had a baby, struggled with infertility another 2 years, had a 2nd baby. Now we're slogging through infertility again (19 months so far), in hopes of having a 3rd baby. But I'll never forget the feeling of Mother's Day daring to exist when I was trying so hard to be a mother and couldn't make it happen. There are so many reasons that Mother's Day might not feel joyful. Maybe you're dealing with infertility, or missing an important person in your life, or grieving the mother you didn't have, or you're struggling so much in this season of motherhood that you just don't feel like celebrating. That's okay. 🩷 There are other holidays, other days. Do what you need to and take care of yourself. 'Skipping' Mother's Day 6 years ago was the best thing I could do for my mental health. This year, even though I'm really struggling with the fact that we're going through infertility, that we'll never have a baby easily, that I don't actually know if we'll be able to have a 3rd baby to feel like our family is complete, celebrating Mother's Day with my little fam is the best thing for my mental health. This year, I need the reminder that I've got something beautiful. I just wanted to extend the reminder to you: other people's opinions of you don't matter. Take care of yourself. Do what is best for YOUR mental health. #mothersdayishard #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #infertilityjourney #infertility #secondaryinfertility #pcos #mothersday2023 #maternalmentalhealth #walkinthrumaylike

Somehow, in just 2 months, Lawson will be two. And of course, if you know me, you know that I've known for months what we were getting him for his birthday. One of the main things on our list were a name puzzle for him. We got Cam one when he turned 2, and he used it so much to learn the letters in his name and how to spell it. We chose a (gifted) name puzzle from @busypuzzle , because they have so many options to choose from. We love that the wheels on the vehicles and the compass needle all spin, and the puzzle colors are gorgeous 😍 #giftsfortwoyearolds #giftideasforkids #giftideas #kidgifts #namepuzzle #woodentoys #woodendesign #weekdaystyletips #toddlertoys #toygiftideas #toyswelove #toddlermom #momoftoddlers

📖 VERA WONG'S UNSOLICITED ADVICE FOR MURDERERS by Jesse Q. Sutano 📖 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Vera Wong is an elderly woman with a son who rarely calls her and a tea shop no one frequents anymore. Then one day, she comes down from her apartment to find a man dead on her tea shop floor. Immediately she uses a permanent marker to draw an outline around the body, takes the flash drive off his person, and calls the police. When the police refuse to investigate, Vera takes it upon herself to start investigating suspects. Only, in the process, she forms friendships with all the suspects. Will she have to turn a friend into the cops? This book was SO FUN! It had numerous converging storylines - all anchored by the dead man - and it touched on so much more than murder. Issues in yeah, loneliness in older people, relationships, abuse, starting your own business, etc etc etc. Highly recommend this one! #bookrecs #booksiveloved #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booktoker #whattoread #whattoreadnext #bookobsessed #bookobsession #kickinupmystyle

I needed this reminder for myself, and I thought maybe some of you did too. It's that time of year: the time of year when everyone is scrambling to sign their kids up for every summer activity. Make the most of your summer break. Fill their days with activities and fun and camps and swim lessons. It's great, if that's what you want for your family, if that's what works and is financially feasible for you. But, honestly, that's not what I want. I want slow and free. I want time or my kids to dig in the yard. Play at 15 different playgrounds. Track down the shaved ice truck. Hike. Bike. Explore. Imagine. But I find myself feeling guilty for not signing my 5 year old up for a bunch of camps and activities. Is he missing out? Will he tell me, 15 years from now, about how I destroyed his childhood by not putting him in all the things? Will I be the 'bad mom?' Spoiler alert: I'm not a bad mom. I'm not ruining his childhood. (But I need the constant reminder.) I'm teaching him to slow down, to enjoy free time, and to choose activities carefully. So for us, this summer, it's tball. He'll still go to his experience-based preschool a couple days a week, because they go to yoga and playgrounds and painting class, etc. Tball and preschool. That's all. The rest of the time, it's okay to be unplanned. It's almost summer - popsicles, pool time, playgrounds; give me all the open ended, unstructured fun please. ☀️ Here is your (my) reminder to do what works for your family, and drop the guilt. You're a great parent. 🩷 #momlifeishard #motherhoodissanctifying #happyinmystylestride #simpleisgood #slowsummer #homeschoolfamily #makingmemories #motherhoodintheraw #realmotherhood

5 Books On My TBR (That Are All Available at Target) I took a solo trip to Target, and I took a long walk through the book aisles. So I thought I'd share 5 books that I've added to my TBR! Let me know if you've read any of them! 1. Back In a Spell - a witchy romance; the authors has a few of these and I've been wanting to read them 2. Hello Beautiful - an Oprah's Book Club pick 3. In a New York Minute - hailed as a funny, cute love story 4. The Vibrant Years - 3 generations of women living their best lives 5. Love In the Time of Serial Killers - serial killers, love story, crime... what's not to love?? Now: which one do I request from the library/buy first?? Happy weekend, friends! I hope it's filled with relaxing (and books, obv) #targetfinds #targethaul #targetdeals #targetrun #targetismyhappyplace #target2023 #tbrpile #tbrlist #wanttoread #mustreadbooks #theseasonfordecorating
