I decided that Christmas lists are super lame when you're a parent. Or maybe we are just super lame. I literally put things like diapers and wipes under the "Lucy" category because SHE WON'T KNOW ANY BETTER and dude, I hate buying diapers. I also asked for gift cards for myself for places that I know I'll most likely end up using on my kids. Or "babysitting" so that we can go on dates.
Oh, and then? We asked for a better coffee maker. We all know I started drinking coffee once I had children. Hence why coffee is necessary. Sanity.
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE CHILDREN. And they say parents lose their sense of self once they have kids....pffttttt.
Somehow my girls have ended up with four sets now of matching Christmas pj's. To be fair, some are more "winter" than just "christmas" but they are all Christmas suitable. I'm also pretty proud that they were not expensive so I probably spent the same on 8 pajamas that some spent on just 2. No, really. I got some black friday deals that were crazy good.
I find it SO stinking cute that Emeline is obsessed with matching Lucy. She will hate it one day so I will soak this in now. I don't have almost anything matching in regular clothing. But footie pajamas? I mean, they're so cute. And I'm afraid I've passed on my love of the comfy-clothes to my kid because every.single.day is a huge battle getting her to take them off. "No mom, but 'der so tozy!" She also insists on having legit pajamas for every nap. Do you know how annoying that is? Yea.
I went out last night to the mall and target....alone. It was nice, and quiet, and quick. But I stopped for a tollhouse cookie because I CAN and I just felt like I had to indulge in something since I was alone. Weird, right?
It was delicious. And necessary.
I'm going to be featuring a few weight loss stories of fellow bloggers in the coming weeks. I think it could be something really motivating, especially before the holidays. These are girls who followed along in mine and my sisters weight loss and encouraged us along the way. I'm kind of excited! I hope you'll like it. Plus, it's always fun to introduce other bloggers who you can follow along with and get encouragement/give encouragement. Real life ladies, who lost (and are losing) weight the good 'ole fashioned way. Gotta love that.
I've been sick all week. This head cold, feel like it will burst open when I bend over, sore throat, raspy voice-thing. It is annoying. I am running another 5K on Sunday...this happens to be The Busiest Weekend Ever. Figures. I very rarely get sick. Ba-humbug.
Today I realized that tomorrow is December. I have now made it my goal to figure out how to make a really cute advent calendar by tomorrow. I never used to be a procrastinator, but now? Story of my life.
Wish me luck.
Have a happy weekend!
