Hello, bloggies! Hope yall had a good weekend. I spent most of mine in bed sick. Such is the fabulous life of having 2 kids in Preschool. We're in the yuck phase. Random mild fevers, runny noses and the like. If this mimics our experience with Carter, we should be good in about 12 months. Lord, give me strength.
Speaking of strength, I've been beach walking like mad and it's paying off. 10 pounds baby! Feeling great.
This week's focus is expert advice. Who do I go to? I've enjoyed Jillian Michaels's videos, but don't know a thing about her show. I guess I don't have any healthy living idols. Maybe one day.
Next up? Housewives.
I don't typically watch it on time, but since Bravo airs the episodes nearly night and day, I can typically catch up. And, I have a few questions.
What in the gawdy Steinmart hell are these women wearing? This was an afternoon party. What happened to a cute sundress or even a simple white linen shirt and khaki skirt?
And, these two. Lawd have mercy. Is Lynne's husband on horse tranquilizers? How do they make it through the day? I'm shocked they haven't burned their own house down by now. Or misplaced a car. Or kid. Is she on the show this year? I wonder if she got lost during the shoot.
Got these cute pieces for our dining room. The black part is actually a chalk board, but I'm way too uptight to write on them. I do want a chalkboard somewhere, though. Working on a creative solution.
We're living at the beach right now. Walking, eating, playing, reading, etc. We do it all.
Matching pedicures. We're "sisters", remember?!
Fat Tuesday is in a couple of days. Holly + fam came over last week to have dinner and make our King Cake.
Love her daughter, too. Doesn't it look like Ainsley is wearing spanx?! :)
The finished product. It was so tasty!
Lainey hid the tiny plastic baby somewhere in her room upon opening the box, so we improvised with one of Carter's latest obsessions, the Squishie. Jack got it! Look at our happy boy.
Ainsley! Quit drooling over the beer. All in good time, bebe.
We're going to enjoy a quiet week prepping for our upcoming visitors.
On the agenda:
*Finish garage re-do. Blake did most of it today. The house no longer looks like a used car parking lot. Our 3rd car is finally inside. Yay! Now, it's my turn to gather all of our summer gear and put it in one place. Rearrange shelves. Etc, etc.
*Work on a few bebe gifts.
*Clean out my closet.
*Sign Lainey up for Toddler Hoarders.
*Pick up Caroline at the aeropuerto!
Back to the Housewives. Did anyone hear Alexis throw out "What would Jesus do" when talking about mothering her kids? Then, something about two nannies.
