Frequent wake ups, sleepless nights, sick kids, not enough time in the day... all part of the job. My oldest was up all night Thursday throwing up - helping to prompt this post. While I wear my "mom beauty marks" and aging Irish skin with pride, it doesn't mean I don't love a little help from my favorite products. I may not be able to get my kids to sleep in and 6 hours a night is my normal, but you bet I use products to attempt to look more refreshed. Good eye concealer and a cup of Bulletproof coffee always gives me extra pep in my step.
January is flying by! Somedays I find this project easy and somedays when we're having a rough morning running for the bus or picking up kids from school sick, it feels like work. I'm too busy either living in the moment or just in pure survival mode. I know the best shots often come from the simple moments so trying to find a balance here. Also need to remember to charge my battery at night and make sure the SD card is not still sitting in my computer... I already love having more candid photos of my kids and working on shooting with my creativity. A little sunshine and warmer temps will be nice :-) A lot of pictures of my boys last week... but here you go, here's week# 3 of my 365 project:
Anyone else doing the Whole30? For a few weeks now my husband and I have been doing the Whole30 in hopes or resetting and cleaning up our eating after a crazy end to the year. While it has meant a few more trips to the grocery and a bit more thorough meal planning, my gut health has never felt better and my husband has started loosing weight and is on his way to his goal. While we're working on cleaner meals for everyone in the house, the kids obviously aren't following the restrictions of Whole30. I've been looking for dinner options that work for everyone; here's some recipes that have been a hit in our house so far.
Just like that week 2 of 2018 is complete. While time is truly flying by, I did get my first taste of this being a challenge. Sick kiddos, hockey tournaments and my own minor leg procedure last week kept us busy and distracted. Luckily I remembered my camera for the hockey tournament which is a good step but choosing a great picture each day wasn't always easy. I promise these won't always be filled with hockey, but I want these pictures to be telling of our daily life and in the Winter that means a lot of hockey!
Hi friends! Hope you're enjoying a relaxing long weekend! One of our favorite brands and a local brand for us here is Maine - L.L. Bean is offering 25% most clothing, outerwear and footwear through tomorrow (Tuesday 1/16). I've rounded up a bunch of my personal favorites from sale items, but this only scratches the surface. You can also check out my previous post of L.L. Bean favorites from the fall as many of these items are still available and on sale again. You can't be the quality and costumer service of L.L. Bean, and these are great prices.
