update on yours truly

ahhhh, i'm so enjoying the peace and quiet right now! connor slept from 9:45 to 4:30 last night, so instead of going back to sleep at 5am this morning after his feeding, i decided to just get up and enjoy some much needed time to myself! i'm lovin' it! it's still dark out and i've got my cup of coffee....decaf unfortunately, but coffee nonetheless. i spent 30 minutes fully indulged in the AWESOME book i'm reading right now called "same kind of different as me". it is truly life changing, so go and get yourself a copy! and then of course i had to check my fb account and see what was going on with everyone since i last left them last night.

as much as i love my kiddos and being home with them, i do miss having some moments to myself, so i'll probably make this getting up early a habit as long as mr. connor continues to sleep well of course!

since most of my posts are usually about THE BOYS, here's some random things that are going on in my life right now, in case you're interested in what a stay at home mom with a newborn and a toddler has got on her agenda :-)

~yesterday i just signed up for MOPS this fall and am super-excited about it!

~since i spend a lot of time feeding the little one, there's limited things to do during those 15 minutes so i've started watching the food network and have been inspired to try some new recipes!

~i think b and i are going to attempt the charlotte half marathon in december, now i just need to find a good jogging stroller.

~on that note, i've really got to figure out a new exercise schedule. it's hard to work around so many schedules that are not your own!

~normally i hate for the summer to end, but this year for some reason, i'm looking forward to fall!

~i've got some new ideas/patterns i can't wait to work on when i find time to hit the sewing machine.....they are soooooo cute AND i even found some cute boy outfits too YAY!

~i'm attempting to help b out with his real estate business now that i am fully licensed. i'm actually excited about working a little bit and setting some goals for myself, plus b is really busy and could use the help!

enough about me for now......i'm off to get my second cup of coffee before the boys wake up!
