Sometimes I feel comfortable enough in my own skin to take a picture of myself without any makeup on. Lately I’ve been taking a lot of these pictures. It’s really nice to feel totally confident in myself. I honestly mostly love what I see in the mirror. Motherhood has changed me into this totally calm, happy and confident person and I love it.
Moving on… I went thrifting last weekend and found the perfect little bench to go with my rocking chair. I also found a super gorgeous (and underpriced) antique couch and I’m super tempted to bring it home. We do need a new couch and why go new when you can go old? The couch is in mint condition too.
So what else? Well, Olivia is going through this super cute but kind of really gross phase where she loves to share everything. Her favorite thing to share? Food. And it comes pre-chewed. Lovely. So it’s really cute and nice of her to want to share her food with me but she will literally take a chewed up cracker out of her mouth and try to shove it in mine. That’s not so nice.
She’s also taken it upon herself to start feeding her dolls and her teddies so they all have strawberry and watermelon stains and constantly need to be washed.
Other than that I’m just waiting for Spring to arrive. At this time last year it was +20 and sunny. This year? 0 degrees and snowy. I’m not happy. I can handle winter but not when it lasts for 7 months. Shawn and I have honestly talked about moving to Florida because we’re just so fed up with the weather… but Florida involves dealing with Trump and staying put means Trudeau ― and Trudeau wins every time.
The weather does show signs of Spring coming soon though so I’m staying hopeful. Olivia and I could really use some time outside visiting the park, zoos, splash pads, just everywhere really. We have so many fun and exciting things planned for this summer! I can’t wait to watch my beautiful little miss experience it all.
So what else? Well it was recently my birthday. We didn’t do anything too exciting because of the weather. Just had a nice family dinner out. I was gifted all of the things you see above as well as a NARS Cosmetics set, the bench I posted above and my desk.
That’s about it. I hope you’re all having a lovely week!
