Question for you stay at home moms (and retirees). Do you ever go through periods where you lack motivation? Perhaps more than when you were working and somewhat programmed into a daily routine?
It just so happens that there are easy ways to maintain a youthful look. These are things you can implement right now!
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.
