Simple Radiance for Date Night
Well another week has flown by and here we are on the cusp of a weekend.
I have never loved and appreciated weekends more than I do now. #dadshome
My sister is supposed to fly in tomorrow but Chicago is supposed to get several inches of snow. That may present a bit of a problem, but we’ll see!
We got a few inches of snow in Raleigh and it was pretty exciting! I love seeing a blanket of white outside my window. I do hate, however, what happened in Atlanta (and Birmingham too I think). Absolutely horrible.
It’s been an okay week. There have been some difficult days with David, and I’ve run into some breastfeeding difficulties, but I’m really trying to stay positive and start every day on a fresh note.
Long story short, I’m dealing with a great deal of soreness, bleeding, and discomfort.
I have met with two lactation consultants, one of them was Michelle from Loves2Nurse(you can find the info for her on this site). I LOVED Michelle. She was really helpful, encouraging, and I felt like I was her number one priority the whole time she was with me. If you need a LC, I highly recommend her.
I’ve also seen a ENT doctor and a speech pathologist. So, we are taking steps to try and figure out the issue, but also being realistic and rational about the whole thing.
Anyway, I know that’s kind of vague but it’s sort of personal and there are a lot of details that I’m sure many of you aren’t interested in!
The high points of the week, however, are as follows:
1. The snow!
2. 4moms was kind enough to send me the Origami stroller as a “thank you” for sharing about them on this post. I was so excited when it showed up at my door. We had a mild day earlier in on the week so we went for a walk in it. It was a smooth ride and I loved being able to see how far I walked on the screen. This stroller has some pretty swanky details, you can read about them here.
3. While David napped I had a little bit of time to play around with the curling iron in my shorter hair. I’m hoping to film a tutorial this weekend! I’m still learning how to fit work in during the day, so I appreciate your patience in regards to the “typical” beauty content being a little sparse these days.
4. Since David was breech, it was recommended that we do a ultrasound to check his hips. He was pretty much comatose during the appointment, and his hips checked out just fine!
5. My husband and I had a little gag gift exchange party with some friends and somehow we wound up with a dart board. I thought to myself, “well that is going to live in the corner of our garage for a few months. . ” and suddenly my husband hung it up on the wall one saturday. I don’t know why I doubted him.
Anyway, we’ve been throwing darts at night (I know, so cool) and I am here to officially inform you that I hit the bullseye.
And no, I wasn’t standing 1 foot from the board.
Justin measured everything out to be the “official regulation” distance and height.
I was pretty proud of myself.
Later he said it’s no wonder I hit the bullseye given all the time I spend at Target. . .
Hope you have a good weekend!
(oh and in case you didn’t know, this whole high five for friday thing started here)
I posted this on the Facebook page and thought I would share it here as well: I’ve received a few emails lately from readers wanting to start a blog. I guess new year, new ventures! I remember starting mine and wishing I could just talk to someone who blogged and ask questions. So, if you are in that position, I recommend reading the 3 part series I wrote. Also, if you have questions that are not answered in those posts, go ahead and post your question OVER HERE and I’ll try to cover it in a video.
