Currently: Last night while on a date (yay!), Neal asked me how I was doing and feeling. I told him, “honestly, really well!”. I’m a little stressed at work, but overall, I’m doing really well. I knew Magnolia would change me, but I didn’t anticipate how being a mom would push me to further define who I am and who I want to be. Neal and I have been working really, really hard these past few months and we’re both looking forward to the holiday season. We won’t be traveling this year and I’m really looking forward to creating our own traditions with Magnolia. It’s hard to believe that Sunday is November 1 already, but I’ve really enjoyed this past month. It was a beautiful month and I’m looking forward to celebrating Halloween with my family and friends tomorrow.
Current Purchase: Amika dry shampoo!!! I love this stuff! I think every woman should have a bottle and not feel bad when they choose to sleep in instead of wash their hair. This stuff works like magic and I love it.
Current Confession: I ate horrible on Wednesday and I don’t feel bad about it. This is huge because in the past it would have been sent me into a downward spiral. I woke up Thursday morning, knew that I didn’t want to do that again, and chose to instantly get back on track. I’m still trying to figure out what to eat on days I workout at Orange Theory. I find that I’m so hungry on those days and don’t make the best decisions when I’m really hungry. Wednesday I had 2 eggs at home after my workout, bacon, potatoes, and 1/4 a bagel at work, 2 cookies instead of my salad for lunch, and a big bowl of pasta for dinner…. I felt like crud. What I’ve learned is to move on and to learn from my decisions.
Current Fashion Pick: I’m loving all the blanket scarfs out there! I wore one for the first time yesterday and just loved it. So comfortable and it definitely kept me warm. I bought this one at Target.
Current “Book of the Month”: For the month of November I’ll be reading “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying-Up“. If you’re interested in reading it with me, I’m going to share my thoughts on the book at the end of November.
Current Obsession: 2 weeks ago we took Magnolia’s 1 year with the amazing Stefanie Harrington. We’re so grateful for the work she does and how she’s captured the past year of our lives. There were so many amazing ones! Can’t wait to get some printed.
Current Show(s): I’m loving Grey’s Anatomy this year, obsessed with How To Get Away With Murder, and hating Scandal. I haven’t been watching much TV, but I never miss these shows, even if I have to watch them on DVR over the weekend.
