we just got back from a little camping adventure up in the catskills and my back is crazy sore. (sleeping two nights on one of those teeny tiny sleeping pads and also sharing it with your 9-month old who knows how to hog space like it’s his job will do that to you.) but crazy sore back aside, i’m on a s’more-and-hot-chocolate-over-a-campfire high and i keep telling josh i’m ready to do it again like right now before it gets any colder outside, because camping brings me back to my childhood and i just love being at this stage where i get to share that sort of experience with MY children now.
but anyway, will share more on camping soon! thought i’d just share a quick hello post since it’s been a few days and i always start to miss the blog when i am away. a few exciting life happenings going on these days…
- i joined a gym. WHAT THE WHAT. it is true and so weird and yes, i joined last week and no, i haven’t actually worked out yet, but i’m going today and which means i felt all the feelings last night. it’s like, do i eat the pint of ice cream in my freezer right now or does that defeat the purpose of working out in the morning? but if i’m working out in the morning, i get the pint of ice cream in the freezer with no regrets, right?! i don’t know. all i know is, i’m turning 30 next summer, and my stomach is mush and beyond the food thing, i’d just love to feel more control over my body the way i did years ago when i was dancing every day. so you guys, please ask me how the gym is going from time to time because i want to stick to it and i feel like you guys are good at keeping me on track. i plan to go 3 times a week because that’s a goal i can keep and if anyone wants to make a similar goal with me, let’s do it together! workout buddies! ;) i promise to let you know how it’s going.
- the voice is back on tv (or the internet since i don’t have a tv) and conrad just started clapping (this stage! with his four little teeth and all the baby babble and the trying to walk and drink from water glasses! it’s the best.) also worth mentioning, did you all see the blood moon last night?!
- i found my favorite new pair of jeans that i feel like i’ve been searching for the last few years of my jean wearing life. this is a big deal because you guys, i have such a love / hate relationship with jeans. there was a period in my life where i didn’t even own a single pair for several years. but these ones are so pretty. i’m calling them my fancy jeans because i have short legs so i need to wear a bit of a heel with them. but they are high waisted enough to hold everything in and together (if ya know what i mean) and still have the right amount of stretch that i can run around in them (helpful with kids) and since i wore my last favorite pair of jeans into the ground by ripping the crotch while pretending i was a rockette doing the can-can with my sister this summer (you can actually see them tear in the video here, haha. embarrassing), i’m declaring these fancy jeans my new faves. here we are together having a beatles moment a few weeks ago downtown. ;) love you, jeans.
have a good week, you guys!
ps. for those who have asked, my blouse is from anthropologie found HERE.
