These 5 Things….

P1060851Tuesday night was the summer premier of Pretty Little Liars-One of my guilty pleasures!  Wine, a manicure and PLL=PERFECT!

This week was a busy one!  Did you catch my post on why you should always bring Lavender on your vacays!  Vacations are rough for me.  I am such a homebody and with 2 little kids, it almost feels like it’s too much work, too little pay off to get out of town.  So, These 5 Things helped me keep my mind on the positive moments on our trip rather then getting tripped up in the awkwardness of being away from my creature comforts at home!!  That being said, these series of posts have helped me keep my focus on the good and ignore the bad.  What do you guys think?  Do you like this series?  I hope I’ve encouraged you all to be aware of your own focus of the week and keep things in perspective!

P1060923I LOVE friendship bracelets-Like, I keep buying them.  I’ll buy one then find another before I even find time to wear the last one-I guess it’s a pretty innocent addiction-could be worse!
P1060738This is the AMAZING view from my in-laws lake house!  Crazy, huh?!
P1060755On our lake weekend we went to the cutest petting zoo-This is Heidi feeding HUNGRY baby goats!  Loved seeing her little face light up while feeding them!
P1060950LOVE these little bowls from TARGET. They look so Scandinavian and love how the insides are bright pink and orange!  They are a steal @ $5.99 for 4 in the store!  Perfect for organizing jewelery, make up or even great for dips!

      Martha! Yea!!! I love shows geared towards young high school girls! Thank you so much for your kind words! I like to share some about myself but I certainly never want to come off as self absorbed!!

    We are on our way home from FL today with our 5, 3 and 2 year old and it has been an adventure so far (we live in MO). Last night we stayed in TN but this vacation has worn me out. The kids (we had) great time but I’m pregnant again (5 mths) and a total home body too!! I might have said “I don’t care about the beach- I just want to go home” to myself a few times 🙂

    Thanks for great ideas!!

      Denise! Well, I’m glad you are on your way home! Every time I was pregnant I was even more of a homebody! Thanks for sharing your story!
