Five on Friday

Well it has been a while since I have sat down to write a blog post! For me, it is not so much about not being able to find the time and more to do with "I don't know what to write anymore". I also forget to write a lot of the time. Whoops. So I am hoping to start writing more again. These days, my time is filled with baby snuggles and diaper changes so most likely I will be talking more about mommy stuff. I originally did not want to become just another mommy blog, but the reality is that I really am not doing much else these days so its hard not to talk about that. Here are some things we have been up to recently!

one. I decided a few weeks ago that I wanted to do something different with my hair. I have always had the same look and these days it kept looking dull and boring. Not to mention the fact that it was always so tangled. It would take me 10 minutes in the shower to get a brush through it, so crazy! So I knew I needed a haircut and figured while I was there that I could add some color to it. I have only gotten highlights once in my life so I was a little nervous. I wanted to add some blonde with it being more subtle at the top of my head and slowly more color at the bottom. My stylist did a great job and I love it so far! It makes even my bad hair days look more intentional and cute.
two. Now that I feel more confident in this whole mommy thing, I have been trying to make time for working out more. I am not necessarily trying to lose a specific amount of weight or anything, I just want to get some more muscles and rebuild what was affected during my pregnancy. I love that Emily Ley talks about being strong not skinny. I love thinking about it that way and it makes me want to work to strengthen this body. I found a workout through Jillian Michaels that I can do at home using our Apple TV. The one I am currently following is specifically for postpartum. It is 3 different workouts that are 30 minutes that target 3 areas of the body (arms, core, legs). I have been trying to do the three different workouts once a week and so far so good. Richard and I also go on a three mile walk every night after work and that is always something to look forward to.

three. I had motivation the other day and I did a big purge of a whole bunch of clothes in my closet. I have been holding on to some pieces for years because I loved them at one point, but they did not fit me anymore. I was very harsh and ended up getting rid of three garbage bags worth of clothes. It was something I have been needing to do for a while and finally decided it was time. I pulled out some name brand stuff and am hoping to sell some of that somewhere. We had a local donation pick up scheduled so that we could get it out of the house fast. We ended up with 8 boxes and two garbage bags worth of stuff. We have been meaning to drop off donations for a while, but kept putting it off and now it is finally gone!
four. Last weekend we made a last minute decision to go to a Texas Ranger's game. We have been talking bout going to for a while and Richard's brother is temporarily staying with us so we wanted something to do. We had a lot of fun, but it was not without its struggles. Sloane had a major meltdown when we were trying to get out the door. She refused to eat and was crying hysterically. I eventually got her calm enough to eat so we could leave. That delayed us about 40 minutes and then we hit traffic which delayed us another 30 minutes. By the time we parked, got into the game, got food and sat down we had already missed two innings. I also did not feel comfortable nursing in my seat with so many people so close together so we left to do that in the middle and we left early since it was getting late and we had a long drive back. But the few innings we were able to watch were really fun. Next time we will just have to target an earlier arrival time just in case of any delays.
five. This kid. I don't have anything specific to say. She is just the best.
