I’m having one of those weeks. Busy beyond belief and tired beyond words.
But I’ve been keeping a list of things I want to tell you.
This post, my 200th, promises to be as varied and random as they come.
Ready for your faux tan?
Check out my go-to make-up blog for tips on how to get a healthy glow (No sunshine required, though it would be nice right about now.)
Cara hasn’t steered me wrong yet. I bought Jergens Natural Glow last weekend, and she’s right about the smell. It is much better than it used to be. I still smell that stinky self-tanner smell after a bit, but nothing like before. Way to go, Jergens.
Need a new, easy muffin recipe?
On a whim last weekend, I made these delicious French Breakfast Muffins. They remind me of Tastefully Simple’s Cinnamon Muffin Melts. I’m pretty sure I liked them the most of anyone in my family.
Get the recipe here. Make them. Eat them. Love them.
How about some happy music?
This song came on toward the end of dinner recently, and bigSIS immediately put down her fork and said, “mayIbeexcusedplease??”
As soon as I nodded, she jumped up and ran into the living room to twirl, dance, sing and cause huge amounts of joy in our home. To which theBOY said, “I guess she needed to dance.”
Need some encouragement today, mama?
A little over a week ago, someone pointed me unknowingly to a blog post that really got under my skin. I wished I could somehow unread it. I couldn’t.
But I did stumble onto another blog post later that day that seemed to be the antidote I needed. The complete opposite perspective. I left a comment, and a few hours later the lovely author responded with a statement I will always hold dear.
“You are enough and your version of motherhood honors Him.”
So, if you are a mom who loves the babies you’ve been entrusted with, I pass this to you…you are enough, and your version of motherhood honors Him. Amen.
See? I told you.
Randomness. Complete randomness. I have more where this came from, too. My bedtime is fast approaching, though, so you’ll have to stay tuned.
What have you been up to this week? Any impromptu dance sessions or tips/tricks I need to know?
