Kate, I mean she just reads the minds of moms and types it out into such a way that I can never seem to express. Her Essay For Motherhood is pin point perfection. I mean down to the hemorrhoid spray. If you have kids, want kids, are pregnant, or may need to take a pregnancy test in a few weeks, hop on over there!
I am the furthest thing from a minimalist, I would like to get to the point where we didn't have just so.much.stuff in this house. But that is just not the stage of life we are in. Four kids, a dog, and two very fashion loving adults does not a minimalist make. Since we are moving though I have devised a plan to go through every inch of this house and rid us of shit. This article asks two questions, and I think that is the method I am going with. I wrote a post awhile ago about spring cleaning, but even that allows me to keep more than I should.
So, we don't celebrate Valentine's Day, never have. I think I stopped with the whole idea in the third grade when we were forced to hand out things to people I didn't really even like. haha! BUT! I can totally get behind many of these gift ideas just for myself, like a pat on the back you made it through another week.
Speaking of which, do you know the meaning behind the day? (maybe not a reliable source)
Ace did NOT want to make Valentine's for his class. Like a hell to the no mom, you buy that shit! And we did. Boo. But here are some really really cute ideas that can be dollar store friendly! Maybe you will have better luck with your spawn.
I have told myself time and time again to stop buying sweaters, and Chris and I even had the conversation the other night that packing for our move should be interesting seeing as how in the lower 48 it will be warm. And well, we don't own too many warm weather clothes. But, the weather outside my door has me creeping on some sweaters, like this Free People one, or this longline denim jacket is amaze-balls!! How many more months are we here? Is it justifiable?
And I will leave you with this, if you are not watching Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, I don't know what to tell you. You need to watch them. Take you right into the weekend.
Have a wild one!
