This and That
So, I haven't blogged regularly for months. And when I have, it's been pretty dang boring. Some days I think I just don't have time. Other days I'm just not that motivated. I teeter back and forth with wanting to put a lot more into the blog and wanting to just let it go. But, most of it is a record for my kids...so I plug on, as boring as it may be.
A friend of mine sent me a link for a new Theology of the Body for tots. I haven't ordered it...yet. But, what a neat resource to have! I'm sure it will be on our shelves before long.
Ages ago, I wrote a little snippet on "What I Wish I'd Known about Becoming a Mom" on Grace's wonderful internet space. There are so many snippets from other moms that are beautiful and too true. Take a peek if you'd like!
Speaking of Grace, she always has the best suggestions/recommendations. I was looking for a new pair of maternity jeans - I only like the side panel ones - and I already have a few from JBrand. She suggested these Old Navy gems, and I am in love! So comfy and stretchy without falling off!
I'm kind of at a point where I want to just go through my entire closet and only save the neutral things - it's what I wear 95% of the time anyway. But, then I see this in a catalog, and I change my mind. Can it be considered neutral?
I really want Carter to be this for Halloween. We'll see!
We've started a teeny tiny bit of homeschooling for Carter. Basically, I'm trying to see how I do really. Giving myself a trial year. I'm working with these two books and constantly thinking I should be doing more/less. Ha! I've read so many articles lately on focusing on play while they're still so young, but he's 5 (just a summer baby), and he acts like he wants to read (and sometimes I feel he needs to know how to write already - calm down, Britt). So, we'll see how it goes this year.
Jeremy and I watched this movie this weekend. Love, love, love it.
I'm on day 17 of Whole30, and really, I just want a big muffin.
Have you tried Soul Core yet? It's a yoga workout to the meditation of the rosary, and it's beautiful. I've only done it once (the Joyful Mysteries), but I purchased the Sorrowful and need to get on it!
Did you hear that Blessed is She is hosting a retreat in March? Are you going?
I have a newborn shoot in a few days and I cannot wait to get behind the camera again - it's been a little while since I've done a shoot and I don't have much longer before I take time off to get ready for this baby. So, I'm excited.
Speaking of babies, we have a boy name and are still deciding on a girl name. For some reason those are much tougher for us. We have choices...but too many! In the meantime, thanks to a link Anna posted awhile back, I've ordered a couple of gender neutral things from here.
I really love this tunic.
That's all for now.
