It's MONDAY! Look, the weekend is great, but sometimes the weeks are just as fun! and this just so happens to be one of them! (PRAISE THE LORD!)
I figured I'd share a snapshot of what we've been up to lately, seems as though I haven't given an update in quite some time!
WHAT WE'RE EATING:
Eyeball everything. If you follow me on instagram, you know I've really taken my eyeball game up to another level this year :) But in real life, we're starting to pull out all the comfort foods. Lots of chilis (this one is our favorite) and soups, our favorite pot roast, warm sandwiches (grilled cheese with bacon & carmelized onions, BLTS), and of course our favorite mac & cheese.
WHAT I'M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Halloween last year! I feel like everyone (especially WW) has changed SO much this past year and as much as I love them at these ages, it makes me just a teeny bit leaky in the eyes to see them growing so fasssst! This was two years ago (Mickey is our friend Charly!) and Winnie was just weeks away from joining our family!
WHAT I'M LOVING:
MY OILS! You guys, I feel so so grateful to have been introduced to essential oils and I can wholeheartedly tell you, they've helped us in tremendous ways. From supporting our sleep habits (Norah is our first baby to sleep through the night at just 3 months old!) to making our house smell divine and of course supporting all the emotions that come with 4 kids. Seriously incredible to have all of this in my back pocket. If you haven't taken the oil leap, I wholeheartedly can't tell you enough how much you will love them.
WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO:
Lots of pumpkin patching, treat making, costume brainstorming (Bellamy is now on her third costume choice), baby snuggling, pajama wearing, soccer, and whatever else the season has thrown at us!
WHAT I'M DREADING:
Daylight Savings. Dark by 4:00 every day really cramps my style. Also, I live in fear of the dark you guys. Like I'm a legitimate mother-of-4, fully functioning, adulting woman that is ruthlessly afraid of the dark. Send help (and flashlights). Ps, I sleep with my lamp on. :)
WHAT I'M WORKING ON:
I've got SO many fun holiday goodies coming in the next few weeks - I can not wait to share with you guys as they release! For now, our reindeer leotards will release on Friday, which we're super pumped about!
WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT:
Bringing out the ol' Christmas tree this week. Collin has no idea.
WHAT I'M WATCHING/READING:
Football. Football. Baseball. Football. Football. And starting Wednesday, The Holiday. Reading? We're doing a bible study called Wife/Husband in Pursuit: 31 Daily Challenges for Loving your [Spouse] Well. Other than that, my reading consists of "How to Survive Three Daughters in Three Years" - strangely a book nobody has survived to write.
WHAT I'M LISTENING TO:
I will Van Gogh myself if I have to hear one more song from Count Mikula, Curious George's Boo Fest or Princess Sophia "Too Cute to Spook".
WHAT I'M WEARING:
You guys!! I went shopping! I bought this sweater (in turquoise & mink!), because it's the best ever and officially my new uniform), these jeans (these too!), these slides (in silver!), and also this sweater (which is perfect to dress up or down!). So basically, that's all I'm wearing ;)
WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
Thanksgiving, Winnie turning TWO! (OMG), and decorating all the rooms for Christmas! Collin's birthday is coming up this weekend and mama is so ready for a date night!
Tomorrow is Halloween - I can't wait to see everyone all dressed up! XO
