Hey y’all! If you’re long time readers you may have noticed the absence of our every Monday posts called “Week In Review”. If you’re not a regular…well you haven’t noticed anything missing! BUT in the new year we’ve decided to switch things up around here. Tweak some post series that weren’t working for us, or that started to feel old and tired and tedious. So, we kicked WIR to the curb. We’re going to now do a twice(ish) month post called “Life Lately” wherein we catch you all up on the day to day of each of our lives. So yeah, that’s what leads us to today!
Hey hey…. Ashley here! I’m going to start this week off and Rhonda will follow my spill with all her juicy news. 🙂
Since last time we talked we’ve had Christmas and New Years. Right? And now we are already halfway through January! So. Cray. Anyyywaay, Christmas and New Years were really great. The kids are old enough to totally be aware of what’s happening as far as Christmas traditions and such which makes the holiday even more special. They got way too many toys – but we all (by all I mean the WHOLE family) can’t help but spoil those babies. So. #sorrynotsorry
New Year’s Eve was pretty low key. The kids and I went to a party hosted by one of Coop’s classmate’s parents. And we spent New Year’s Day at my parents.
I am super happy to report that we had an incredibly smooth transition back to PreK when Christmas break was over. I was fully prepared for some pullback and hesitation on Cooper’s part (if you don’t know he’s suffered from serious separation anxiety when starting school). But that kid just marched on into the building like it was no big deal. He’s a legit pro now. 😉
And life has just pretty much gone back to normal. I finally got to see Rhonda when she came down this past weekend for a hair appointment. We got to hang out Friday night and get into all sorts of fun trouble. 🙂
It has been unseasonably cold around here. Yeah, I know it’s winter BUT it’s not usually actually cold. For so many days and weeks in a row. So – that’s been fun. And different. And makes it incredibly hard to get out of your warm bed. 🙁 lol
That’s about all the major points for me…what about you Rhonda?
Well, it’s been a hell of a month for me. I kicked off the new year with a ton of goals, which have all but gone to shit already. Really, its not that I wasn’t reaching them, but shit happens to really make you reassess what your priorities are.
You know how I told y’all I was going to lose all this weight?! Well I still believe that, but I definitely had a setback with going out of town this past week. I was on the road a lot and doing a lot of running around, so I definitely consumed some fast food. That’s okay, though. Back at it.
December was a really tough month for my business, so I planned to come back with a vengeance in January. Well, turns out January isn’t amazing for my business either. Oops. I have not been in the proper mindset the last week or so, due to preparing to go out of town.
As Ashley said, I went to Mississippi this week and it was great. Thursday, I drove all day then went to dinner with my friends Brooke and Cyndi. I stayed the night at Brooke’s apartment and we sipped red wine and chatted. It was so good for soul and exactly what I needed at that time.
Friday, I had my hair appointment and went for something very different! My appointments take several hours, so I had just enough time after to run grab a new top to wear and head to Ashley’s house to get ready. We went out to our spot and met a lot of new friends and just had the best trouble-making time. 🙂
I went to my sister-on-law’s baby shower in another city on Saturday then stayed the night at their house. Sunday was back on the road!
It’s been really crazy around here, but I am ready to smash some goals and get back to some sense of normalcy. I think I’ll start by taking down the Christmas trees…
