• Winter decided to hit us the last couple of weeks. Last week I was okay with it since I was cruising in the Caribbean...this week Iโ€™m not feeling all that okay about the icy roads and frigid temps that are keeping me from being outside as much as I would like. ๐Ÿฅถ๐Ÿฅถ๐Ÿฅถ
  • Wishing I was still at the beach ๐Ÿ– thinking it was a little hot to be sitting outside. Itโ€™s pretty here at home too just...โ„๏ธโ˜ƒ๏ธ๐ŸŒฌ #winterbeach #curacao #carnivalcruise #carnivalhorizon #sunset #palmtrees #toesinthesand #takemeback
  • ๐Ÿ˜‚ Would you like to volunteer to take a group on this field trip? Nope. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Actually I used to work at the school and it was super fun...but teachers you have my respect! Heading out on a Caribbean cruise ๐Ÿšข with my honey this morning and SO excited! For the first time since we became parents (over 15 years ago)we are going away for more than a weekend without kids. I know Iโ€™m gonna miss my babies, but seeing all these parents wrangling their children and trying to entertain their toddlers and all I can think is ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰! Also, they are in snow โ„๏ธ and full on third winter in Oregon and we have sun and palm trees ๐ŸŒด! Happy with my life choices right now! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

  • Just save that drama for your mama! ๐Ÿ˜œ ๐Ÿ˜† Honestly though, this lesson has been driven home a lot the past few years. Realizing when to just #letitgo and not get so worked up is sooo much better and causes way less gray hair and wrinkles...and thatโ€™s what itโ€™s all about! Who wants frown lines? Not me! Just remember, people are human and they do and say stupid stuff, sometimes on purpose but most of the time they probably didnโ€™t even notice because they were thinking about what they were going to eat for lunch that day. And there you are fretting and talking about it with everyone you know, causing drama where there doesnโ€™t need to be any. In the words of the wise Taylor Swift just #shakeitoff and move on. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’• Have a fabulous week everyone! ๐Ÿ˜˜
  • Iโ€™ve got a bunch of more boy ๐Ÿ‘ฆ friendly valentine posts ๐Ÿ’•coming at you this weekend...but this girly unicorn ๐Ÿฆ„ slap bracelet card is a favorite that I just canโ€™t get my boys on board with! ๐Ÿ˜‰ If your kids want magical rainbows ๐ŸŒˆ and unicorns ๐Ÿฆ„ though...this free printable can be found on @makingtheworldcuter.
