Week of July 10th

Another week of summer has flown by. The days may be longer but they still seem to fly by.

This week was filled with chaos and laughs as usual.

We missed the memo on Cow Appreciation Day at Chic-fil-a and were the only people in colors at lunch on Tuesday.

Mikey got rave reviews for improvement from his speech therapist after the holiday break and Tucker was not happy about Mikey getting to play with play-doh without him. I’m pretty sure he was also a little mad I was using his “night-night’ to keep warm while we watched.

We also had a few lazy days stuck inside due to all the rain.

Tucker has become a bit of a tablet junkie this week, especially after I threw out all the binkies in the house and told them they were going to brand new babies and that they were big boys now. Sometimes I feel bad about the amount of time I let him use the tablet, but then I remember he’s only 2 and already knows his ABC’s, colors, shapes. animals, and so much more and most of it is because of that tablet.  He literally surprises us every day with things that we had no idea he knew.  So I don’t feel that bad about giving in sometimes when he unleashes his toddler rage.

The boys have been working hard on their bike riding skills, practicing their golf swing and being their typical goofy selves. As you can see they also believe that pants are no longer required and they are rubbing off on their friends. 🤦🏻‍♀️

We ended the week exploring the stream at Gantz Park, one of our favorite local parks. Mikey loved walking around in the water and Tucker enjoyed finding disgusting things to stick in his mouth, per usual. I swear I feed him!

I treated my hair to some much-needed love thanks to Influenster and awesome Clairol Professional Vox Box I received. The Clairol Professional Liquicolor Permanent Hair Color I received was Light Neutral Brown.  The color actually isn’t too far off from my natural color but the dye left my hair feeling so smooth and the Clairol Professional iThrive Split End Repair they included in the Vox Box absolutely revived my hair.  My hair hasn’t felt or looked this good since before I had kids! I’m one happy Mama!

How to Start a Blog:  Have you ever thought about starting your own blog?  When I first became a stay at home mom it never crossed my mind that I could have so much fun, meet other moms like myself, and make money from home just by starting a blog.  After trying all kinds of online gimmicks to make money, direct sales, and even considering working a midnight shift to help bring in some extra funds for my family I am so glad I discovered blogging.  Now I can do something I love while being home with my boys full time!  Check out my step by step post on exactly how you can set your own blog up and start making money from home today.

Ritz Pineapple: This week I shared one of my favorite summer recipes since I was a little girl, and the dish I credit with putting me in labor with Mikey two weeks before my due date.

This week certainly tuckered us out!  I recently heard about personalized vitamin packs from Care/Of and I instantly thought “That’s just what I need to keep up with these crazy boys!”. I started taking my daily packs this week and look forward to sharing my opinion on them next week.  Just in the past few days, I’ve already felt a boost in my energy.

Until next time….
