Random Thoughts For Your Friday

I'm pretty sure that last night is the very first night since I've been blogging regularly that I actually just completely and totally forgot to write a post. I normally write my post for the next day the evening before, and last night...just didn't even cross my mind. THAT is how you know this little mama has a lot of stuff going on in her brain.

So now it is Thursday night, and you all will be seeing this tomorrow morning. Hopefully by that point I will have woken up from an amazing night of restful sleep and I will be bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready to start my day (what IS that saying, anyway?). This week has been a bit...challenging? I hate to even call it that because nothing difficult has happened at all, but still...I'm tired, y'all!

Not only are we trying to sell the house, which means we have to be out of the house several hours a day for showings, but I've also started a new freelancing gig that is requiring several hours a week. All great stuff, but add that to a baby who is currently cutting FOUR teeth and not sleeping great, plus trying to find something to do with said baby and a crazy dog for hours a day when you have to be out of your house....it's a lot!

But life is great and grand and I'm happy as can be. I'm loving the freelance stuff that I'm doing...it's so nice to have a "job" of sorts again. I've done a few little things off and on since starting my life as a SAHM, but this seems like it may be pretty consistent work. I hate to admit this, but I feel a little more fulfilled when I'm working. Don't get me wrong, I adore Grayson more than anything on this entire planet, and I wouldn't give up staying home with him for anything, ever. But it can leave me feeling a little...uninspired? Unappreciated? It's nice to use my brain and to meet deadlines and have something I have to do, other than change diapers and sing silly songs and play all day. All things I love (minus the diapers), but still...I'm sure you get it.

This could turn into one of those posts about women staying home vs. women working, and what that means and which is best and blah blah blah. But it won't, because I just don't care. I think women make the choice that is right for them, and that's great. I'm learning that I need a little more on my plate than just being mommy to make me feel good and happy and satisfied, and that's fine. Some women don't. Some women need a thriving career and 50 hour work weeks. I'm good with all of it.

I have no idea how I went off on that little tangent in what was supposed to be a quick "Hey, I'm still here, hope you have a great weekend!" post. But that's how my brain is running these days. Nonstop and all over the place and who knows what you're gonna get. Keeps things interesting!

But now, I actually do want to say I hope you have a super fabulous amazing weekend. Grayson has been throwing up tonight, which is always scary, but he's sleeping soundly now and I hope that means it's over and done with and we aren't looking at something that will linger over the next few days. I'm hoping that our weekend includes someone putting an offer on our house, us finding the perfect house, and some fun thrown in there somewhere.

Now for your weekly dose of cuteness. For those of you who aren't following me on Instagram (if you aren't, do it!), here are my favorite pics from the week. I must say my family seemed extra adorable this week, but I might be a bit biased ;)

Happy Friday, friends!


  1. Girrrlll...I totally feel you on the needing something more in your life. I love my girls and love that I've gotten to spend so much time with them, but sometimes I need more conversation than they can currently provide. It's nice to know grownups. :)

  2. That boy is handsome and Grayson is cute too :) Haha...well I really do hope that y'all find a house soon and your house sells right before or after. No gap! How you manage to find something to do while they show the house is a job within itself. You are rocking it mama and it is super cool that you are doing some writing on the side.

  3. I think being a SAHM with a lil somethin extra sounds PERFECT! I hate my job and want to stay home so bad but I know I would need something to do to prevent me from going crazy. :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment...each and every one makes my day just a little bit brighter!
