Diary

Just keeping my kids’ teeth in their heads is a full time job.

What a day. It’s Monday, I guess! A pretty one, but a Monday nonetheless.

I mean. I thought I had it all together. The kids had dental appointments at 9:30. I scheduled it early so hopefully they wouldn’t miss too much school.

Ha!

I was doing well, even got to the office relatively on time. But once we were there, the dentist discovered that BOTH of my kids in braces had broken brackets, so we managed to fit them in to see the orthodontist next door, since we were already there and all . . .

By 11:45 we left. But they were hungry, and the kids had missed their lunchtimes at school.

So we went to Chick-Fil-A.

I KNOW, sue me and my real food batoot all the way to the bank.

It’s the only fast food I ever eat, but I do indulge about once a month. I always get the kids meal (did you know they have gluten-free grilled chicken nuggets now?) and figure, at least it’s protein, right?

Don’t answer that . . .

Finally, at 12:30, I dropped the kids off at school.

And just like that, my day is half over. Good thing I got up at 5:30 and started working early!

So here are a few fun things I’m working on.

Yes, it’s coming!!!!! And I’m super excited about the 12 Days of Holiday Outfits series I’m working on. More info to come!

This Pinning Perfect class I’m taking has me with a project list a mile long. For starters, I just updated my Popular Cocktails page with a fancy new graphic. So be sure to check that out, especially if you’re looking for some new cocktail recipes to spice up your holiday gatherings. If you don’t need it right now, pin it to Pinterest for future reference.

And I updated some of the other graphics on my sidebar. I’m trying to get a more cohesive look going over there. There’s no end to the tasks of running a blog, I tell ya. Of course, it doesn’t help that I’m Patty Perfectionist. I want everything to be just so. If only I were so particular about the state of my house . . .

Oooh. CAbi featured me on their Instagram this weekend. Fun, yes???

In other news, I’m trying not to look at the all the snow out in the midwest that is permeating my Facebook feed. I DON’T HEAR YOU!!!!!

It’s still lovely here. In fact, I was able to get out and walk twice this weekend. It felt AMAZING.

The nice thing about walking as opposed to running is I get to stop and take pictures of the pretty scenery (see above).

Okay, that’s it for me. Back to the grindstone!
