It's raining in So Cal again. The hills are getting lush and green and our gas bill is out of this world due to me having the fireplace on a solid 13 hours a day. No regrets.
Birthday winning with this super cute nail kit. Hero has been setting up nail shops almost every day for the girls and they love it. Highly recommend. We also got Hero her these boots which she is rocking. So cute.
I just finished reading In the School of the Holy Spirit and it was so, so, so good. If you're looking for a fast read that will 100% guarantee improve that state of your soul, get it.
Inspired by Jenna, me next non-spiritual read will be Little Women. I've never read it and I sort of feel like I'm not a real lady until I do. Plus, how cute is this collection?
Kirby is in the process of a few potentially exciting career things but until they come to fruition we need to pinch does pennies. I massively fail at every budgeting technique everrrr (cash, ynab, mint, etc etc etc) so we have resorted to just paying me like a bill. I have a separate checking account and every two weeks we transfer me $$$ for all our non-utility spending. Then it's up to me to figure out what to do with it. It's kinda of freeing! I have my card, I buy things, I run out of money, done. My account is through Simple which has a really nice app that helps me keep track of my limits and spending. I'm kinda all about it.
5. 6 week check up.
I just went to my OB LAST WEEK for my post-partum check up. I am super good at doctors appts, guys. I didn't even go to mine after Joe. I just showed up in my doctor's office a few months later, pregnant again. Anyway, you can imagine my humiliation, walking up to the check-in desk, telling the boss lady I was there for my 6 week check up at 6 months post-partum? But do you know how awesome my doc is? He still counted it as a pp visit and didn't charge me. And he also didn't make fun of me for it. Dreamboat.
6. Accidental texting.
OK. I wasn't planning on this being a take but my previous take reminded me of it and now I'm DYING to tell you. A few weeks back I found a really funny photo of my OB that was taken right after I had Francis. I've seriously seen this picture countless times and never noticed that there is legit nudity in it. Maybe I was just too focused on my doc? Maybe I'm dumb? EITHER WAY, I thought a friend AND her husband would think this particular photo was funny and so I sent it off to them BOTH in a group text with a witty caption and it wasn't until I hit send that I noticed my bare boob was fully visible in the bottom portion of the photo.
OH MY GOSH.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME.
I frantically texted my friend on the side begging her to grab her husband's phone and delete it... and she did... so all was well. But, geez. Most stressful five minutes I've had in a while.
7. ONE MORE.
I wasn't planning on telling you this story, either, but now I'm on a roll! My best story ever of accidental texting happened when an ex-Bachelor's wife (Sean and Catherine) had her IG account hacked. Someone started posting gnarly pics on her account, one of which was a beefy man in a g-string taking selfies in a bathroom mirror. I think his caption was very terrible. Anyway, I screen-shot it (naturally) to text it to a friend so we could die laughing together (obviously) but instead I sent it to MY MOTHER IN LAW.
Let me tell you, it is SO complicated to explain something like that.
And with that... adieu. Please wish me luck in life. Wish us all luck.
Shamefully linking up with Kelly!
