My life feels very 50 mil parts right now and so my blogspirations feel very 50 million parts, too. I'm teaching both the girls (one of which "quit" school today, so...). I am semi-parenting Clem and Peter (Daniel Tiger does the other portion, just like at Jenna's house.) Speaking of Jenna, did you see Prim's birthday video she made? I only wish I had the desire to devote time to making sweet videos my whole family will cherish forever. Instead I devote time to thrifting. How many times can I beat a dead horse? A lot.
I'm not sorry.
Since you were all sooooooooo interested in my secret coffee table desires, I'm gonna just put it out there and assume you all want to know about my secret mirror desires so, maybe I present to youuuuuu....
Isn't it so pretty? I've been scoping it for a year now. And I'm still scopin'.
I really like all your breakfast ideas! So thanks for that. I really like all your comments always. The ones re: my mom were especially beautiful. The emails, too. It made me realize how much we all really suffer in this world, and how much strength and bravery come out of these circumstances. You all kinda blow me away and I'm inspired by you.
(are we all crying yet?)
I know I gave you the rundown of all my favorite school things but it was before I dusted off The Story of the World and popped it in our car to listen to while we drive to and fro. And I knoooowwww everyone already said they love it and it is great but it turns out that's TRUE. Verified by yours truly. The kids are totally into it, I am totally into it, and we are collectively learning about a billion new things. I feel like if we listened to it on repeat forever we would be expert world historians (cliff notes version). I also adore the narrator. He reminds me of the guy that narrated those cool 60's Disney nature documentaries.
Last week I decided to make ourselves a little family schedule. Something to keep me motivated and the kids motivated and a way to answer the "cannnnn weee dooo _____ (watch a movie,
And then Clemmy was processed into my room under a shower of rose petals...
And then I found Johnny in the sink scrubbing his legs with a nail brush so...
IT'S OBVIOUSLY GOING GREAT.
I watched this today and loved it. Kids know how awesome life is. We could all learn a thing or two from them.
I feel like fall always calls for boots and sneaks. I've been in want of these Sam Edelman booties since the dawn of time (in Putty, mind you.) Is this year the year??
And sneaks. I love the Brooks Vanguard but waffled too long last spring when Anthro had the Peach colored ones and now they are no where to be found (whyyyyyyyy?!). And there are just no color combos quite as cute rn! These are realllllllly bomb but we all know I will be spending $120 on sneakers approx never. I used to have good old Nike Air Force 1's back in my pop group days. Maybe I return to my white-chick-trying-to-be-a-smidgen-gangster old ways.
Ah, Blythe, always so complex and meaningful.
I try, I really do.
In other news, I have never read this but everyone awesome tells me I must. and so I must, right? Is now the time? Seems perfect for longer fall days at a crisp 82 degrees.
In other news again, I have been semi-faithfully exercising and I've been loving this 30 day yoga challenge by rec of a fellow Huset Fitnesser. I did the first video after a looong day and my back felt tight and awful. After the 30ish minutes it took to complete the first session I felt incredible. I'm a believer, Adriene! Take me where you will!
And in the most other news of all with sprinkle of tmi, I am back in the fertility business after a whopping 3 months and 2 days post-Joe. And I'm in the market for some sort of NFP device to help me/tell me what to do/require the least amount of effort on my part/lead me to purchase the least amount of these. I have some friends that use Lady-Comp and some that use the Clearblue Fertility Monitor and I've been wondering about this Ovulation Microscope. But I want to hear from ((((you))). Divulge all your secrets to my com box. Let's just get all the embarrassing stuff out of the way now MUCUS CERVIX CONSISTENCY CHECKING EGGWHITES BLAH BLAH.
We are women, hear us roar.
