A Valentine Wish List

I love a good wish list, because damn I love things.  I am admittedly a little materialistic and gifts are my love language.  With that, it’s fitting that I am continually making lists of things I need and want.

Valentine’s Day being next week seems like as good a reason as any to tell you what I’m coveting these days.

Soma Drapesoft Jersey Tulip Sleeveless Nightgown – I sleep in the nude, but I love a good nightgown to wear around the house in the mornings or at night.  To be honest, I would head out for errands in this after tossing a denim jacket over it.

HONEY Graphic Tee – I love a good graphic tee and when I saw this one, I knew I wanted it.  It’s simple and perfect.

Nickel & Suede Earrings, in Merlot and Black (I wear Large) – I mean, I have a LONG list of these earrings I want for adding to my collection, but Black is definitely next.  I find myself needing them with most outfits.  I want Merlot too and it’s the earring of the month, meaning it’s on SALE!

Alex and Ani Queeen’s Crown Bangle – I started collecting Alex and Ani when Stuart and I started dating.  I haven’t gotten a new one in awhile, and this February exclusive is CALLING ME.

Hope’s Simple Side of Things Dress – I have been obsessed with this dress since Hope’s posted it on Snapchat a couple of weeks ago.  Such a perfect dress for Spring.

I could go on and on, but you have to stop somewhere, right?!  My Amazon list is also full of amazing items that I would LOVE to have.  Ah well, I will get there eventually!

Week In Review – Rhonda

Another week has passed and I have to say, it was a damn good one for me.  I felt great and got a lot done.

Monday was a little bit of a rocky start, as Mondays tend to be.  My kids were cranky and fought half the day.  I did get some work done though, thanks to the power of music to motivate me.  We ran to the post office, which my kids love to do for some reason.

Tuesday, we started a solar system unit, which the kids have really been enjoying.  It’s one of those topics that every age can understand, which makes teaching them much easier.  During their naptime, I had beer and Fritos and tried to relax but I had so much work to do that I really just wore myself out trying to speed-work.

In the evening, I made a stop for some wine and cranked up the music while I cleaned the kitchen.  I got all up in my emotions thanks to music, but it was all very therapeutic. Sometimes you just need a good cry.

Lil’ Mama and I hit up Target on Wednesday, after I successfully placed a highly coveted Lipsense inventory order.  We had a lot of fun checking out their new carnival-inspired toddler girl clothes.  They are to die for.  In the evening, I looked at houses and wedding venues until my eyes were crossing.  Both wedding planning and house hunting are exhausting.

Stuart had the car Thursday, so I did a lot of housework after school.  I also cleaned my makeup brushes and made a lovely margarita to go with the taco salad I cooked.  Stuart came home with a big surprise – my first ever bouquet of flowers.  I have had flowers in the past, just not from a significant other.  It was such a simple gesture, but it meant everything to me.  So did the tequila he brought me.

Friday, we went grocery shopping once Claudia finally woke up.  Food shopping is one of those things I really enjoy, so it’s always a good day when I can do that.  Throw in some beautiful weather and making a few sales and it really was just a lovely day.

Sweet, sweet weekend.  No matter how good my week is, I am always excited for the weekend.  There is nothing better than boozy brunches, time with Stuart, and having help with the kids.  Saturday, we did our usual brunch routine and I played with makeup while Stuart handled some work stuff.  When he got back, we spent time outside grilling and listening to music.

Sunday was a lot like Saturday – brunch, makeup, grilling and hanging outside.  I started the day out by opening my Mother’s Day gifts though.  A stack of birthstone bangles to add to my Alex and Ani collection – PERFECT. They also brought me more flowers!  I got spoiled.

I mean, I don’t think my weekend could have been any better.  It was amazing.  Tell me about your Mother’s Day!

FYI – Ashley Speaking… I just finished editing my portion of this post with my children climbing all over me, hitting each other with light sabers, pushing a lawn mower back and forth in front of me, and along with constant intermittent pulling at my laptap or trying to hit the keyboard…you get the point. I literally feel like I just accomplished a great feat by finishing it without having a major breakdown. Anyway. Mom life for real. 🙂
