This weekend, Scott and I spent an overnight at the Borgata Hotel and Casino, in Atlantic City. It was our first night away from Blue. As much as I missed him, I enjoyed the time away with Scott. Even though we didn’t escape the cold nor spend that much time away.
There was a time that I loved getting all dolled up for Valentine’s Day. But, nowadays, eating sushi or going to a quiet BYOB is more ideal, for Scott and me. This year, we may even bring Baby Blue along since it’s his first Valentine’s Day, and he has captured our hearts, for sure!
Yesterday, I spent the afternoon with a very talented team of women, at Anthropologie. I was looking for some ideas for spring essentials. Specifically, lightweight jackets, cardigans to wear over cute tee shirts and pretty blouses, mule shoes, and fun bucket and cross-body handbags.
As soon as I became a foster-mommy (and first time mommy), I went through culture shock. I went from a professional-career-oriented-power-suit-female to a stay-at-home-eat-more-dress-up-less mommy. While I would consider it the most joyful time of my life, it was also a bit depressing. I found it so easy to get into a mommy-rut, and just stay in my pjs or sweats, all day. My life was more hands-on and active. Then, one day, I went on a Hardtail Forever shopping spree. This is, hands down, my favorite line of active wear.
I’ve been a happy blonde for almost two years, now. It took a while for me to achieve blonde, in the first place. I eventually gave up on the salons after five attempts that barely produced blonde highlights. Realizing I’d risk losing my hair ~ along with the fact that my hair grows quickly, I decided to take matters into my own hands. Overall, I’m glad I did. But, come to find out, achieving blonde is one thing. Mastering how to maintain blonde hair, is quite another.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Holiday Shopping time! I don’t know about you, but I have a love-hate relationship with physically shopping at department stores. In spite of the twinkling lights, the joyful music, and the festive decor, it can be stressful.
