Tanning, Allergies & Other Randomness

Happy Wednesday!

This week has already been a bit weird. For one, I was able to get off work early on Monday. It was  pretty nice out, not super-hot, but very sunny, so I actually took some “me” time and laid out by the pool for an hour before Tanner got home from school (with SPF of course). I mean, if I’m ever going to get a base tan this year, it has to be when I can actually lay out -  kid-free. I’m hoping to find a few more days in the coming weeks when I can do this.


And hey, I’m actually back in a bikini and not feeling terrible about it! I mean, I don’t look like the hottest thing at the pool ever, but I’m certainly gaining some body confidence back and not feeling ashamed. I’ve got some work to do still, but I’m just happy to be in a bikini for this spring and summer.

Later that afternoon, I had a big allergy/sinus attack! It was awful. I swear at one point I did 20 sneezes in a row – I kid you not. One side of my face was just pounding, eye watering and nose ugh. I could barely get to sleep even after taking allergy meds and ibuprofen. I just knew I would not be going to work the next day. I even had to skip my 4am Body Beast workout (for shame!) I just took it as my “rest” day and will make sure my planned rest day is my makeup day.

I’m back at work today and still a little stuffy, but managing. I started feeling a little better late afternoon yesterday, so I played out back with the kids. Farrah always love time in her swing.


I was able to clean up our lawn too, and all of the toys that had accumulated out there. I’m trying to figure out what to do out there landscaping-wise. I’m not really a “green thumb” type. I do know we need to lay some grass seed again. I think I need to stick with container gardening…I am so bad with the actual soil here in Charleston, SC…it’s so hard to work with. Any good. hardy plants you Southern gals can recommend? I need something that doesn't need a lot of maintenance and will hopefully come back year after year. These are some inspiration pictures I have for the container garden.

It would be so fun to find something old and rustic like that wheelbarrow above to use as a container! I've also seen people use rusty old bikes with baskets on the front as a container for flowers.

Anyway, that's all I've got for you - have a great rest of the week!

Monday Musings // Weekending

What a weekend! It started off great with a Girls' Night Out at our local Party at the Point. This is a party that occurs every Friday from now until mid-June...there is always a band playing and it's just a fun time. I went with a few of my girlfriends from our neighborhood wine club.

The band that night was Departure, a Journey cover band. **Don't Stop Believin'....nananananananaaaa.."

It also happened to be wine night for our club that night, so we stopped in at the hostess's house after that and I did not get home until around 1am. 

I love those girls! We have some crazy-good wine nights together!

Saturday was a rainy day, so the kids and I stayed inside, got chores done and I may have snuck in a little nap during Farrah's nap time...I. Was. Exhausted. From the night before. We had a birthday party to go to for my friend's son at SkyZone later that afternoon. I was so glad it happened on the rainy day because the boys desperately needed to get some energy out. And that they did.

And then Sunday, I took all 3 kids to the pool solo - yep, Supermom status right there. ;-) I got Farrah into her new float...the water was cold since it had been raining the day before, so we didn't stay in too long, but the boys had fun.

Jake had been given the green light to go play some beach volleyball since I had gone out Friday night. 

We met up later at La Hacienda for dinner, but by then, I felt pretty out of it...all the weekend's antics had caught up to me. I had been up since 4am on Friday since I've started Body Beast again and staying out until 1am that night pretty much has me needing about two straight days of sleep to get my energy back. I certainly do not bounce back like I used to! I'm actually dragging at work today because I also got up at 4am today to do my Body Beast workout as well. I really want to stick with it, so I've set my alarms on my phone to go off in the following order:

That last one is just for laughs...but if I ever make it to needing that one to go off to finally get out of bed, I'm in trouble. So far, I've gotten up on the first one and not needed the others.

Anyway, I hope I can snap out of this tired fog of my Facebook friends posted this to their timeline this morning and I felt it was more than appropriate for how I'm feeling at the moment.

Happy Monday! Hope y'all had a great weekend and have a great week! xo

What I Want Wednesday: Boho Chic

I easily get myself in trouble doing searches on the Internet for beautiful Boho tops and dresses...but I simply can't resist. I'd love for these {or something very similar} to hit my closet soon.

How stunning is this dress? Perfect for a night out this summer.

Gypsy 05 Spaghetti Maxi Dress

This dress is amazing...I love all the colors and the pattern. I would actually wear it as a top with jeans.

Tolani Murphy Dress

 Same with this could easily work as a top or a dress. Would be great layered.

X Revolve Bella Dress

I love a good strapless maxi with a fun pattern...[e3],prd[1000046067_NS1003428],ag[no]&call=url[file:tjxrPRD2.chain]
Ella Moss Convertible Maxi Dress

What have you been drooling over lately?
