Monday Musings

Even though I know I need to give it up, I'm freshly caffeinated off of Mountain Dew right now. I only tell you that to explain that I'm typing even faster than usual and I make no apologies for what direction this blog post takes. T is napping and it feels good to have a small window to hammer out some words and connect with you all.

I enjoyed getting to celebrate Jared for Father's Day over the weekend. Last year was his first one, but T was only a couple weeks old and we pretty much floated through a hazy sleep-deprived newborn schedule at the time. I knew then he would be an incredible father, but the past year has proven that countless times. T is lucky to have him and I know he and Jared are going to be best buddies forever.

Jared's new Warriors hat was his gift from us :)

On another note, I love online shopping. Not in the sense that I shop all the time, but when I do- it's online. I love to take my time, comparison shop and not get all sweaty and stressed in store because I don't know what I'm looking for. And now that I'm on crutches I am utilizing everything online as much as I can. Groceries, thanks to ClickList at Kroger, diapers, thanks to Amazon Prime and I finally let myself buy a pair of shorts last week, too. I seriously owned ONE pair of denim shorts that fit so I snatched up these white ones and I'm super happy with them. They do run a little small, I think, FYI!

After a week of moping and grumbling about my injury, I took this weekend to be as productive as I could be. Of course there's a lot I can't do, but I did have both my crockpots going in meal preparation on Sunday so it felt nice to be doing that right at least. I have missed cooking and having a meal plan each week!

I need to cut myself off for now because this blog post could NOT be more random if I tried. Stay tuned, though. I have something fun and book-related to talk about tomorrow so make sure you don't miss it!! :)

  10. T is getting so big!!! Sounds like you had a good weekend. Those shorts are super cute! I have been doing more and more shopping online lately too. Though I prefer to clothes shop in the store because I have to try everything on. Yay for crock pots!!! I need to get another big one like that, I only have one big one and two small ones and I rarely use the small ones. Hope you have a great week!

  11. Online shopping is definitely my go-to. It really does make things so much easier and it's nice to be able to shop at a variety of stores all at once without wasting gas haha.

  12. I go through phases where online shopping is my favorite and then I'll go for weeks or months without buying anything online haha. I'd love to hear your favorite crockpot recipes! With us house hopping for about a month after we move to Minnesota, I'm looking for easy meals to get us through!
