I have this new obsession of just wearing black tees with basically everything! I love that it goes with most everything that I own, it’s flattering, and it’s a lot harder to see the yucky stuff that my kids stick on me! I mean, I love a good white tee but I get so worried when I have one on around my littles! I’m rounding up a couple of my current black tee closet staples for the summer! You can dress some of them up, or down depending on if you’re heading out on date night, or just to the splash pad! The best part? All are under $20!! #winning
Oh, and I finally tried the “pink drink” at Starbucks and I can officially see why it’s a rage! It’s. SO. GOOD.
What are your summer closet staples?
It’s Sunday, which normally means a lot of meal prepping for the week ahead, and making sure we have a smooth one! Hectic weeks are always the norm around here anyway with lots of activities, work, and the craziness that ensues with having a 2 and a 3 year old! So I like to stay ahead of the game and plan my meals and healthy snacks before that #manicmonday rolls around!
I recently had a GIANT revelation. Like a super ginormous one. And since then, every girlfriend that is in my life has heard about it, and I finally decided that I needed to write about it since I just. Can’t. Stop talking about it. So I’m going to ask you a question and you need to answer it honestly for your own good…
When was the last time you got yourself a bra fitting?
I ask this because I couldn’t even remember when I did it. Was it high school? College? Who knows… But since then I guarantee my chest is definitely not the same size as it was whenever I did have a fitting. I’ve gained weight, lost weight, gotten pregnant, breastfed, lost weight, got knocked up again, gained weight, and nursed yet again. And now that it’s all behind me, I have zero clue as to what size bra I’m in since I’ve gone through a thousand changes. And I’ve been living in nothing but sport bras because I crave support because I have such horrible back pain. It was time for a change guys…
My sweet little Aria. Tuesdays and Thursdays have become so much fun, because it just ends up being her and I for a few hours while brother is at school… It’s temporary as she will also go five days a week starting June, but we had to wait for a spot to open up. Til’ then, it’s “Mama-Aria” time two days out of the week! And we have been eating it up! She gets so excited to have just me all to herself. We don’t even do anything fancy and just run regular errands, but she loves having my full attention. And I get it. She started having to share me when she was a mere 18 months old. And that always weighs heavy on my heart, because she was so teeny and doesn’t understand why her mama couldn’t give her 100% anymore. But I digress…
These past five months have been educational as I move towards eating a lot healthier, and fully understand what we are putting in our bodies. It all started in December when my mother landed in ICU because of a diabetes crash for over 3 days. I can’t even put into words what I was feeling, and what our entire family went through. It was life altering for all of us to really make strides in eating the right stuff, and cutting out the crap, like sugar.
Sugar is just awful and it’s practically in EVERYTHING. As I was doing the whole 30 a couple of weeks ago, it taught me so much about reading labels and really understanding the ingredients. You guys. Learn to read those labels. You’ll know how much you’re consuming immediately…
Now don’t get me wrong. I haven’t cut it completely out, but I definitely make a serious effort in watching how much sugar I take. Enter Zevia! Products like Zevia have definitely helped with finding balance! Sugar free and no artificial sweeteners! So I took it and ran with it! Decided to take this yummy ginger ale and put a spin on a regular moscow mule, to turn it into a sugar free spicy mango moscow mule!
