Happy Monday!! I had a fun weekend with the kids – lots of swimming and playing. I am back on track working out and it feels soo good. I hate having to take a day off (I usually take sundays off) but I was sure craving a gym session today. David gets home finally tonight – yay! It has been good for him to have some time with brothers and whatnot because he has kinda had a hard year. David will do a guest post when he is ready and update you all on what has been goin on this year. (after some emails I realized I may have worded that weird – I didn’t mean anything with us, just meant with his brother passing and his dad has been really sick 🙁 we haven’t mentioned it until now.) But we are glad he is coming back! I am not going to lie I do kinda feel like superwoman when he is gone – I have to be nonstop because I have the kids and work so I end up going nonstop all day and it always feels really good at the end of the day. I was so happy when one day me and the kids did meetings with architects, picked out details for the warehouse reno, went to the gym, went swimming twice, deep cleaned the house, interviewed potential new employees, made dinner, and movie night! Like holy cow I was so proud of myself that day haha. Sometimes I do get overwhelmed when I have a lot on my plate but when I know I have no one to watch the kids and I am on my own for everything I end up not having any time to get overwhelmed and I love it. Our babysitter has been sick so we haven’t had anyone the past couple weeks. Luckily my mom and sisters were able to tag team watching the kids while I was in L.A. though.
Anyways I wore this leopard dress in NYC – I got it just before we went on the trip and its already sold out I am so bummed because I wanted people to be able to snag it. Its soo soft. But all of Rachel Pally’s pieces are really soft. She always uses really nice fabric. This bag is maybe my favorite I have borrowed from Fashionphile. The color!!! Sometimes I want to buy designer bags and then I remember that my sis in law owns the biggest luxury consignment store and then I just call her and borrow some ha its pretty sweet! Sarah my sis in law who started it needs to write a book because I love her story of how she started it – she started selling them on ebay forever ago and it grew into what it is now!
I just got the kids to bed and the house cleaned. For a while I got out of the habit of cleaning the kitchen and family room after the kids go down but recently got back into sweeping, mopping etc every night after they go down and it just feels so much better. I currently have my Leaves candles burning (best fall candle ever!) and am going to put the computer down and watch Vikings 🙂
Hope you had an amazing weekend xo
