August: Currently.

enjoying (much needed) ‘girl time’. I’ve had a couple of opportunities to get out of the house (sans baby) for some much needed ‘girl time’ this month. While I’m thankful for a couple of playdates each week – time without Charlotte is something I haven’t done much of since she was born. I plan to be more intentional with my baby-free breaks this fall.

implementing a new morning routine. I just haven’t been able to get into any type of morning routine since Charlotte has been born. As a nanny, I thrived on a schedule; however, motherhood hasn’t had the same affect. I finally sat down and wrote out a plan that we’re – slowly but surely – sticking to!

drinking a variety of delicious wines. Gotta love working at a wine bar! 

shaking my head at the mid-season finale of Pretty Little Liars. Yes: I watch this show on Hulu (no judgement until you’ve seen the first episode.) Simply addictive!

finishing The Christian Atheist and Jesus > Religion. I HIGHLY recommend both of these books to 1) fellow Christians & 2) anyone who is searching for answers about God and TRUE Christian community + biblical love. I promise you that you won’t be disappointed. 

obsessed with jogger pants. This is one trend I can’t get enough of. How comfortable! What do you think?

  1. First of all, that picture of your daughter is THE CUTEST THING I’VE EVER SEEN. Seriously, I’m dying over it. Secondly, jogger pants. I need to try some on! I can’t decide if I can pull them off or not, but comfortable clothes are my jam. 🙂 Happy weekend!

  2. Thanks for the book recommendations!!! And why haven’t I heard of these jogger pants?! Make no apologies for PLL’s. It’s one of the best shows and I couldn’t believe the mid-season finale either! But I still don’t understand what was Sarah’s role in all of this.

  3. Beautiful pictures!! You’re baby girl is simply the most precious!! …and wow! I def want to checkout those books!! Thanks for the suggestions! 🙂

  4. That first photo of Charlotte should be in a magazine. She’s such a beauty! Im happy you’ve been able to get out with girlfriends this past month. It sounds like you really needed the time. Good luck with the schedule planning. I know for me, once I wrote it on paper it really helped.

    1. Definitely a guilty pleasure like the Bachelor! And thank you! Your little ones are so sweet, too. I wish we could get them together to play. Boo.

      Also – I am working at a wine bar! Marty watches Charlotte in the evenings for me 2-3 times each week. It has been working out really well. A nice ‘break’ for me and some wonderful daddy-daughter bonding time for them! 🙂

    1. I think the fall would be a perfect time to start; it gets dark early and makes for the perfect setting to watch. Actually, there were times last fall (when I was watching home alone) that I’d have to stop because I got so freaked out. Ha!

  5. that first picture of charlotte is absolutely adorable. i have watched the first few seasons of PLL and i agree it’s totally addicting. i stopped watching because them continuously getting so close to finding out who A is and then of course not finding out who A is got very very VERY annoying to me. i still like the show, but my frustration was building. i think i’ll go back to it someday!

    1. Thanks Carrie! It definitely is addicting but I just had to find out who A was! It was annoying to have to wait for so long. I stopped last season for a bit but started watching again when Parenthood ended. Ha.

  6. I’m loving the jogger pant trend too! I just bought a pair to wear after the baby’s born. They actually fit somewhat decently now, but they don’t look great with a huge belly, haha.

    Jordan and I have already had discussions about “me time” after the baby’s born. He goes to bible study one night a week directly from work and doesn’t get home until bedtime (which will mean I’m alone ALL day with the baby), so we agreed that I can also pick one night a week to get away and do something. I’m hoping it works out!

    1. That’s great that you’re on the same page with Jordan 🙂 Marty knew how important my workouts were (and are) to me so he gave me an hour on most days to get a workout in. Once Charlotte turned three months I was able to take her to the gym with me so I don’t get as many breaks as I once did. I’m hoping to have some regular meet ups without Charlotte this fall!

  7. My sister in law loves ‘Pretty Little Liars’ and I always say I should spend a couple free afternoons diving into it! So happy you’ve been able to fit in girl time – even just catching up with my girlfriends on the phone can be so refreshing and nice 🙂
