Life Lately

Hey hey!  Welcome back to our little corner of the web.  We are so grateful that some of you return time and time again.  If you’re new here, welcome!  Go back and read older posts to see what we are all about.

Twice a month, we like to tell you what’s been going on in our worlds.  Now, let’s take a look at life lately.

Rhonda-

The last couple of weeks have been such a blur, but have been pretty good to me!  Really, I have been spending a lot of my time building my businesses and organizing the house….with a little shadow all up under me.

For once, we got an opportunity for a date night.  It’s getting easier now that Claudia has a couple friends on our street that she spends a lot of time with and the boys are old enough to fly solo for a couple of hours.  We went to Capital Grille in downtown Fort Worth.  I highly recommend eating there if you have one near you!.

Because Claudia has been super clingy lately, most of my activities involve her.  I have been making the most of it and enjoying my time with her.  We have spent time in the sun and have done our makeup together.  I wanted a girl for so long and boy, did I get it.  She is the girly girl I always wanted.

She has done all my work with me, helping me make videos on social media, packing orders, and “organizing” (that means she plays with her toys all up under me while I organize…and that I later am tripping on Barbies).

This past weekend, I took a super rare girls night out to the Stockyards with my friend Natalia.  We have never spent any time one-on-one and it was so much fun.  We went to a Terri Clark show, but I was really just there for the drinks.  Turns out Terri is pretty good, so that was a nice bonus.

Let’s see what Ashley has been up to!

Ashley-

Heeey you guys.  🙂 What’s been going on in my world? Well, we have for sure been enjoying the sun, sand, and water from wherever we can get it. We haven’t had a chance to go to the beach in a couple weeks, but we’ve been taking advantage of the park and my parents back yard!

Per usual, there has been lots and lots of shopping happening. We have been getting ready for our new house PLUS back to school shopping AND regular day to day shopping. Let’s just say Sophie and I have been in heaven. 😉

Speaking of back to school stuff, I took both kids to go get their hair cut. Cooper has been getting regular hair cuts since shortly after his first birthday, but this was little Soso’s FIRST hair cut ever. At the ripe ole age of 2 and three quarters I decided it was time to trim those scraggly ends. 😉 She was over joyed at finally getting a chance to sit in the chair. And she did really well with keeping still and not fussing. I mean, no one can compete with the perfection that is Cooper Grice in a hair cut chair BUT Sophie did really well. LOL Seriously though, Coop has always behaved so well during haircuts. Anyway, I almost teared up watching Soso get her hair cut – but we all escaped tear free and with two little babes who now have much more manageable hair!

This weekend we packed up and loaded up our house to move everything to our new forever home! It was sooo much work, but sooo worth it!

To say that we are exhausted from all the moving is a YUGE understatement, but we’re thoroughly enjoying our new bigger and better surroundings. Even if I had to yell no less than a million times,  ” STOP RUNNING ON THE STAIRS. GO SLOOOW.”

 

What about you guys? How has your summer been going?

Week In Review: Rhonda

Monday, I really hit the ground running, but perhaps it was too much, because in the afternoon I hit a wall and really didn’t feel well – chills, achy muscles, and sore throat.  I think my body was trying to fight off an illness.  I got my workout and hair washing and drying all done early.  We got school done early and I got fun mail!  There is nothing better than makeup in the mail, especially a poppin’ highlight.  I also love when a seller or company really steps up the game in shipping out packages.  I ordered a Texas koozie and patch and Bryan threw in postcards and a sticker!  Great service.

I had the most productive day on Tuesday!  I couldn’t even begin to name all that I got done, but among those was a killer workout, quality time with my kids, and bathrooms cleaned.  Hell yes!

Claudia and I got our exercise on Wednesday, ran some errands, and brought a stack of packages from the mailboxes.  Who doesn’t love happy mail?!  We shipped off some happy mail too.  I love sending items to their new owners.  I think it’s the best part of running a resale shop.  I made a delicious dinner and enjoyed some quality time with Stuart after the kids went to bed.

I worked my tail off Thursday, prepping for something major I am planning and dropping prices in my resale shop.

Friday was spent doing little tasks like washing rugs and cleaning my ring, then a target outing for my mini and me.  She helped me make the kids’ dinner while I simmered chili for Stuart and me.

Y’all know I love my Saturdays. I kicked things off this week with my squats (booty is starting to pop!) and then was rewarded with a mimosa (or 4).  We had an amazing afternoon nap, then got groceries.  Stuart made us some phenomenal tuna steaks and I drank WAY too much vodka.

Sunday was much like all our Sundays… did my nails, had some adult beverages, and kicked it with my family.  Claudia did what she does best and “helped” Stuart cook and eat his dinner.  It was of course the start of Daylight Saving Time, which is always such a damn treat.  The entire day seemingly disappeared with the omission of a single hour.

How are you adjusting to the time change? Do you feel like you lose the entire day instead of a single hour?
