So today is September 2, 2016…and its the start of Labor Day Weekend!!!
My plans to get the weekend started didn’t necessarily pan out the way I intended so I am up catching up on some blogging work. I thought I would get a quick post up since I have a lot of random things circulating through my head!
This post is COMPLETELY RANDOM…
The first thing is BLOGGING…I commented on a fellow bloggers blog earlier about continuing this blog. Its my baby, but recently we have a love/hate relationship. Sometimes I truly love it and other times I hate it! But I cant seem to let it go, although in my heart sometimes I really want to let it go. I know that doesn’t make sense but these are my thoughts…The Green Eyed Lady has been going strong since 2008, and seeing another blogger that is celebrating her 1 year anniversary, I am proud of her but I’m like WOW I remember being there and look how much has changed since I originally started as a fashion blogger…8 years ago! I didn’t know what I was getting into, honestly I still don’t sometimes! Im constantly learning and evolving…I guess I see others that started and that old evil comparison to where they are at and where I am bothers me so I start doubting myself…hmm guess I will put more thought into where exactly The Green Eyed Lady is headed in the future!
Yesterday I purchased the Essie Gel Couture Polish…today is my first day wearing it. I must admit that I am loving it…if I can get a good 5 days out of it I think I will be happy! I’ve tried others and it didn’t last one full day…so I am hoping for better results this time around!
I have been looking everywhere for the Essie Gel Couture set and I finally stopped into Ulta after work and they had exactly what I needed! I really love my nails being polished and since we are trying to save money this helps a great deal (if it last) versus me going the nail shop every two weeks. But ummm when did the going rate for nail polish go up to $10!!! Ohhh how I miss my husband working at L’Oreal (why did they have to move) my discount on my favorite cosmetics was AWESOME! I got a stipend to use every other month, okay well it wasn’t really mine but he knew it was mine! HA!
While out yesterday I also FINALLY found the Vaseline Lip Therapy-Pink Bubbly!
I first saw this on a Walgreens advertisement, but they didn’t have it in the store…however, yesterday was the day; and I am ABSOLUTELY in LOVE!!!! I love Champagne, Sparkling Wine…and this follows the same lines. Its like the champagne of lipgloss!!! I’m a huge fan of Vaseline products so its no shocker that I love it. I bought one for my ID Wallet at work.
Its pretty cool here this weekend in Cleveland, and I must admit although I’m going to miss Summer…I am welcoming Fall with open arms! I truly love the in-between seasons of Fall and Spring!
and y’all know my love for Football! OSU plays their first game tomorrow! Preseason Browns games have been on weekly…although, they aren’t really off to a good start! We have already started our mini tailgating on Thursdays! Now bring on Saturday tailgating!!! WHOOP WHOOP!!!
Missing My Yoga Pants
When I became a SAHM I was very adamant that I wanted to be a working mom. Well after 3 years my husband and I decided it would help us a great deal financially if I went back to working at least part time. Well I found a part time job in higher education which is the field I was working in prior to becoming a SAHM. I found a great positions, at a great place, I work with a great group of people, who have already motivated me to get on top of that Masters that I started but never completed…and all I can think of is how I long to be home with my babies!
I guess that’s the mommy in me that wishes there was a way to have a career and be there 100% for my babies.
A few days ago Emma had a Physical Therapy evaluation and it totally slipped my mind. The therapist called and I kept apologizing to her because I don’t schedule and not show (that’s not like me)…and still in writing about this days later I’m still beating myself up over it. I know there was a possibility of me missing it even if I was home but I just hate that I missed it! I have a great support system that helps with my children whenever we need it, however, I miss being home with them. I know I am doing what I have to for my family but sometimes I leave them with tears in my eyes. I know Im only gone for a few hours of the day but I miss being there all day long with them!
I know its been 3 years since I worked but now that I am back at work it seems like we just made the decision for me to stop working!
