It took me forever to title this post because I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what day it was. I spent the first half of the week thinking it was almost the weekend and the second half thinking it must be closer to Monday. As long as I keep my deadlines straight I’m perfectly ok with not having any clue what day it is. C’est la summer. Anyways. I have so many posts in drafts but since I rarely get to my actual computer {or more accurately, rarely does it work in the moments I have on it} those drafts are doing me little good. Sooo here’s a little catch up post of things that have been happening lately. A little glimpse at every day life. * First and foremost, we found a house!! These past few months of transition and ‘not knowing’ have been rough on me. I’m not 100% in love with the house yet but being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel has been amazing for my mental health and sanity. Right now it’s just a house we picked out of thin air, but I know soon we’ll be able to make it a home –our home- and I can’t wait. house paint colors

* My little guy has been a trooper through all of this. I’m so proud of him. Three can be a tough age but he is so so much fun. Summer has only just started and we’ve pretty much done nothing at all but I love just hanging out with him. I’m soaking up all of the days with a nearly empty to-do list before things get a little crazy next week with moving, painting, and projects.

* I had a hard time figuring out how to fit my exercise routine into our new daily life when we moved. We’re about 25 minutes from everything we used to do and trying to figure out how to balance everything and make it all work without dragging the kiddo around all day long was tougher than it should have been. It’s still a work in progress but I’m moving in the right direction. The three year old still protests gym childcare with a vengeance {but we’re working on it} and it’s nearly 100 degrees outside already {literally}, so I’ve been turning to Pure Barre and at-home workouts to get me through. I’ve been toying with the idea of seeing if a different gym will give us a better experience but I love my gym {and the price} so I haven’t made anything near an actual decision yet. I’ve put in a request for our new place to have a little room for some workout videos without kicking fans and coffee tables – we’ll see how that goes. pure barre

* I tried to get KB in swim lessons before summer but all the classes were full. I finally got him in some classes across town but it’s worth it. Plus they’re indoors which is nice because we don’t have to worry about it being hot or slathering on sunscreen. He used to love the water but over the winter decided he was against it if it had anything to do with his face or head. He’s enthusiastic yet resistant. My goal for the end of the two-week lessons is for him to just put his face in the water already! {Which he had no hesitations about last year!} preschool swim lessons preschool swim lessons

* I’ve been using these hot summer days as an excuse to test out all the different ways to use Starbucks’ coconut milk in iced and frozen concoctions. Some are winners; others not so much. {Spoiler alert: frapps are winners, lattes & macchiatos are not.}

* For probably the 100th thousandth time, I love working from home. Especially during the summer, despite the sometimes craziness that goes along with it. So so grateful.

That’s all for now. 🙂
