I have been meaning to start this forever and finally have. Every Saturday I am going to post about something/s that made me happy during the week. Its going to help me focus on positivity and be a way for me to reflect on my week and smile.
One: I got a whole bunch of new make up products and I LOVE all but one of them. Do you know how rare that is? I am beyond thrilled with this and now I have all these new ideas for new make up looks, I’m excited to try new techniques I’ve heard about and just super looking forward to playing with my new, pretty make up!
Two: H and I played with a couple different friends this past week. One play date was at our house and the other was at our friends. It felt so good to be social with an adult, to talk about our kids and to laugh as we watch our babies interact with each other. There is something so calming and therapeutic to me when I am with friends and we can just talk and laugh and whine. Its the best.
Three: Valentine’s Day was really fun. I set up a scavenger hunt for Wild Man and H to find H’s gifts (Wild Man and I opted out of gifts this year to save for some exciting things) and I loved watching them run around the house finding clues. H mostly was just interested in holding the clues after dad read them. His main Valentine’s Day gift was a Pua (from Moana) and it was love at first sight. He kept staring at Pua and smiling and giving him loves. It was the highlight of our day.
Four: H is kinda, sorta weening himself off of his second nap (thats definitely not my weekly happy) but there are still some days he’ll either fall asleep or just needs to have quiet time. Our most successful quiet time is usually when I turn all the lights off, turn on a movie for him, give him his binky, a blanket and his Mickey Mouse tsum-tsum pillow. But the other day Wild Man was home during quiet time and the two of them watched Toy Story. I laughed at how GLUED they both were to the movie. I love their friendship and how much they both adore each other.
Five: I’m going to be posting about this later in the week, but I have found this new motivation and confidence in me that I have apparently lost. I have realized I change myself to try and be like the people who’s blogs I read or who’s twitter accounts I follow and get embarrassed if I do things these certain people call annoying, dumb, etc. The other day I was thinking about this and slapped myself back into reality. I like who I am! I’m going to do me 100% again. As long as I am happy with myself and my actions and I’m doing what I feel is best for me and my family, no one else’s opinions should make me decide I need to change myself!
Thanks for reading along guys. I know I don’t have legions of followers like some bloggers, but I appreciate each and every one of you who do read, who like my Instagram pictures and who follow me along on Twitter. Its fun to make new friendships and be connected in that way.
