Hello Again!

Well, I've been MIA for a while. I mentioned to my blog friend "The Mrs." that I've been feeling quite overwhelmed lately with life. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I like to do everything as best as I can and a lot of times this leaves me exhausted and frustrated because sometimes I just can't do it all. Well, I'm happy to report I'm fine now, better than fine actually. With a little help-I had an Oprah "Ah Ha" moment and I know that asking for help and maybe not ironing the bed linens 100% of the time is fine and taking care of "you" should come before laundry. So, I'm trying this approach and it's working for me. To all of you super moms and just plain super ladys out there doing a great job of taking care of your family and friends don't forget to take good care of you!

On another note, I read this today and I thought I'd pass it along. I think I'm pretty good about this but it never hurts to hear these steps again. We should all make sure to cherish precious moments. If you don't they'll slip away and might not become part of the wonderful memories engraved in your heart.

Things You’ll Need:
Lust for Life

Step 1

Pay attention and always remember you only have so much time on this earth. This will help you identify magic moments so you can treasure them as they happen.

Step 2

Open your eyes and look at life with wonder. Everything around you is a miracle when you observe it with childlike wonder.

Step 3

Be cheerful and refuse to ride the roller coaster. It’s much easier to distinguish those lovely moments and appreciate them when you are optimistic.

Step 4

Laugh. Laughter will bring you happiness and happiness will bring more precious moments in your lifetime.

Step 5

Invite adventure and enjoy it. Like laughter, adventure will bring magic moments to your life and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Step 6

Smile. Smiling encourages people to talk to you, opening new doors and possibilities for cherished moments with new people.

Step 7

Life is precious and people come and go in your life only to bring you special moments. Welcome these people and what they bring to your life.

Step 8

Love the people who are close to you and even some who aren’t.

Fabulous Fridge Friday

I've been tagged by One Fabulous Mom! My first tag:) Anyway, this is my fridge. I had just cleaned it last week so it's not too bad. If I was tagged to see my bedroom I would have's a travesty! Anyway, if you can see into the bottom of our freezer we have a ridiculously large bottle of Kettle One Vodka in was left over from a cocktail party we had but it's almost gone...thanks to those Summer Sassys! We did just get gifted a bottle of Dom Perignon which is chilling in the fridge...we're not trying to get on CRIBS promise...we just haven't had a night alone in a while to celebrate anything. Anyway, let's see. I Love Cheese. Most of it is in the drawers, except for the two containers of parmessean. And I bet you can't see the brussell sprouts, I love them baked with proscuitto and olive oil. Last but not least, apparently I love Snapple AND Bud Light. Not gonna try and hide it. There you have it folks!

My plan for today.

This was H last week putting the moves on his friend K during their play date.

Well, unfortunately I'm feeling like a single mom this week. The Mr. was traveling last Thurs-this he's gone again (trip to CA) and not home until tomorrow morning. We miss him around here, it's really hard not having that hour break at night that I usually get when the Mr. rushes home to put Hunter to bed. The little man has also been waking up with some bad dreams lately and won't calm down unless I sleep with him. So, I haven't gotten too much sleep this week. I'm a little grouchy, good thing he's such a sweet boy. Here in CT today it's rainy out. I've decided to take Hunter to a kid's museum not too far away that he loves...he usually runs himself ragged which I'm hoping he does so that he'll nap. Then we have a play date from 4-6. Then we are home for dinner, bath, books and bed. I'm already excited to climb into bed, watch a little TV, read a little and sleep a lot. Very exciting huh?

Happy Weekend!
