A Little Game of Hide and Seek?

You found me! Olly olly oxen free! OK let us END this game of hide and seek!

Wow, it's been a while hasn't it?!  I'm still juggling work & home life...trying to pull it all together. I can't say that I am getting any better at it, but I TRY. I don't blog as much as I would like, but have been living life to the fullest. Hubby, son, and I are all doing well.  We have so many stories to tell but have been too "in the moment" to document it all via blog posts.  Little by little, it WILL happen.  Here is a fairly recent family photo.  I love our son's "tough guy" expression (Whatchu lookin' at Willis?) and the cute little photo bomber in the stroller!

Trying to squeeze in what I enjoy WITHOUT feeling guilty about it has been a journey. Taking small bits of "ME time" away from family time is taking some getting used to.  I am learning that it is necessary and good for everyone.  A refreshed Mommy & Wife is better for the Family.

SO... making time for exercise (Yoga especially!), spa days with the girls, as well as clothes & makeup is in my near future! I am trying to venture into more fashion forward territory. That's a BIG deal for this 2 year old mommy & 4 year old wife!  Too much time had passed that I didn't take care of what I wore or how I looked.  It just didn't matter to me. Eventually I began to feel as frumpy as I looked!  I really "let myself go" and I just want to change that up.

Ann Taylor Launch Party
It was inspiring to attend a fashion event and see how looking good can lead to feeling good! My husband accompanied me on the adventure and was my professional photographer & videographer for the night!

I am also trying to connect with others IRL since socializing primarily happened online ONLY for me.  It really is easy to fall into that rut.  I don't really see it as a rut since I do enjoy it so much (not to mention that it is so much easier for me go online than it is to go out).  Interaction in person is good for you! I recently attended a fulfilling Blogger Meetup which involved getting to know a lovely group of  ladies who also share a love of blogging, spa treatments, delicious appetizers, wine spritzers, and brownies!  I was the oldest one there but that's another topic all together.

Spa-ing & Blogging come Together!
I feel so much better after sharing! Now it's your turn! I'd love to know what everyone is up to!  What have I been  missing out on here in Blogland?!  Let's get caught up. I need to know your tips & tricks about how you balance your blog life with all the other things that make up your days!

Wordless Wednesday

Our 1st Photo together Summer 2004
Yes, it was a party. A bachelorette party. No he wasn't the stripper! He was the DJ & Photographer.

We Ran Off & Joined the Circus!

OK, not really! I haven't blogged in quite some time so I kind of feel like we have run off! Life has been busy!  I'm sure that many of you wives & mothers can truly relate!  I miss my hobby (blogging) - BUT I wouldn't trade in the memories that my growing family has been creating together!  Our son is nearly 2 years old now - which means that birthday party planning will be our next busy activity!

Here are a couple of fairly recent photos taken of our family at our son's first visit to the circus! Definitely a happy wife with a happy life! Our little guy was a little tuckered out but I assure you he had a great time!  He couldn't take his eyes off of the pretty circus lady.

Thanks to Erasmo Cortez

I have been searching the internet high and low using my wireless internet hyattsville connection trying to decide what I am going to get my brother in law for his birthday. He is just one of those people who has everything. I can never think of anything to get him for Christmas or for his birthday. Last year, we ended up just getting him a gift card to Starbucks that lasted a really long time because we just couldn’t figure out what we should do. I have been reading tons of gift blogs, looking on Pintrest, etc. and still can’t come up with something. I hate to just give him another gift card, because I feel like it is just so impersonal. To make my situation even worse, he is the best gift giver. Anything that he has ever given me, I have absolutely loved! He really knows how to pick out great gifts. I only have two more weeks until his birthday rolls around. I am hoping that something will come to me sooner rather than later!
