Good mooooooooorning!!! Happy Friday my friends – I’m so glad we made it through another week, relatively unscathed. At least I did, which I’m thankful for. This work-from-home-stay-at-home-motherhood thing is not for the faint of heart, but there’s not a thing I would change about it. This week I became the mother of a 5-year-old for the first time, and I just can’t get over how lucky I am to have both of my boys. They are sweet and wild, handsome beyond belief, and learning more about them every day is such a gift!
In other news, I ate waaaaaay too much sugar this week. There’s something about a cupcake that I just can’t say no to. In fact, I can’t say no to even just one – hashtag I’m almost embarrassed. Reining it in a little on the weekend will be hard, but despite my hopes it turns out that I really do feel better eating less sugar. Sigh.
Finally, are you a member of my Facebook group Barefoot & Beautiful? I know I’m biased, but I think it’s great and I’m so loving getting to share even more over there. I talk about better beauty, healthy recipes that I don’t show on here, tips and tricks that I’m learning for living a healthier life, and workouts that I’m loving. If you’d like to join just click here and request and invite!
I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend, and don’t forget to check out these lovely links while you’re at it!
