So What Wednesday

Hello friends.
Happy Hump Day to you all!

So What Wednesday

This week has been better, though still not always 100% rainbows and butterflies.  Maybe the ladies over at Shannon's spot had better weeks (or maybe not, but that's kind of the point, right?)

So What:
* I went on my first school bus in probably 15 years for Liv's first field trip to the apple orchard.  She refused to let me take a picture of her.  Stinker.  This self-portrait was about the best I got

* I just about peed my pants doing jumping jacks this weekend at the gym.  Never again.
* We are looking at switching satellite providers to get a better deal.  I want to make it super worth it.  Saving 20 bucks to get get used to a new system isn't exactly my idea of a great plan.
* I was super pumped that someone from Ireland ordered my hair ties!  Ireland!!  So cool to see those international orders!
* I got a job helping out in our church's nursery on Sundays (or whenever else they may need me.)  Nate is thrilled this will get me to church more.  Plus the other mom who works there is awesome, so we get to watch Elmo or Dora and chat.  The only thing that would make it better would mimosas - probably frowned upon in the nursery environment, however.
* In an effort to make memories, we went to a local pumpkin patch.  It was miserably windy and Liv was in a "mood."  Needless to say it was not the magical afternoon I hoped for!
* I am struggling with the new requirement to lean on Nate more.  With the new working situation, our roles at home have changed too.  It used to be pretty 50/50 (minus me picking up his crosswords and baseball hats everywhere).  It's a new suit to wear - I'm still breaking it in.
* I am already dreading Christmas this year.  Pennies being what they are, I just don't want to disappoint Liv when she's old enough to know what's going on this year.
* I'm hosting a pre-Christmas rush Mystery Trunk show.  Anyone who makes a purchase enters to win all of the style rewards (basically free and half price pieces)  I'd love for you to check it out {here}  There are friendship bracelets for only $19 {love} {light} and {courage} {!!  Can't hardly go wrong with a price tag like that!

How was your week??  I love a note or two - let me know I'm not the only one writing this in yoga pants while the kiddos sit in front of the boob tube!

Hang in there Liz...downsizing income is no walk in the park...and adjusting to new roles within your family takes getting used too....almost 4 yrs ago we went through huge adjustments in our house...it was a year I never want to repeat again...but after it was all said and done it has not only made me a stronger mother and wife....but a stronger person as well....if you ever need someone to talk to...I am always here and I completely understand where you are coming from...Elisa

*hugs* downsizing is rough- I have been there. You will adjust and it will all be worth it one day. Don't be too hard on yourself about Christmas. Liv is going to be excited with anything. We are also in the same boat this year. I am not going to over spend just to build a memory that they won't even remember unless prompted by a photograph. They only really want a few things and that is what will happen. Kids are kids it is so easy to please them and yet we put all this pressure and expectations on ourselves. Hang in there. Congrats on your Ireland order!
