Mama Confessions

I have to leave my baby for the first time overnight this week.  I have a work event that I’m planning and while I’m excited for the event, I’m not ready to leave my baby for THREE days!  It is only in Cary, NC at the Umstead Hotel and Spa (I know, could be worse, haha) but I hate leaving my boys.

Emerson’s first birthday is coming up in November.  We finally came up with a cute theme but I feel like I’m behind on my planning for it. I haven’t even mocked up the invites yet which need to go out early November! Need to get on that ASAP.  How cute is this pic of him?  He fell asleep on me like this one morning this week.

Football season is a fav of mine. I’m a die-hard Green Bay Packer fan. (hey Wisconsin!)  It’s weird to think that this time last year, I was nice and pregnant watching games and thinking about what football season will be like with a baby.  Well, here we are!

Fishing random things out of the toilets.  So fun!  I guess we need to get better at closing bathroom doors….

We attend church on Sundays and Emerson had been giving me a fit each Sunday when we go to drop him off in the nursery.  The last two weeks, he’s made some major improvements and this mama is HAPPY.  I think he’s finally getting a hang of it.  SO THANKFUL, because this mama heart can only take so much!

Emerson loves to read.  I’m so glad that we started reading with him when he was a little infant because he looks forward to reading each night before bed.  I like it when he pulls books out in the middle of the day and starts reading to himself.

Joanna Gaines has a home line coming out Nov. 5 in TARGET!!!  Come to mama!  Everything they do is great.  They have really rode this wave of success and good for them.

Speaking of Joanna, this weekend I had a much needed girl’s night and we did a little craft as part of our night.  I felt very “JoJo” while creating this.

Latest hair product love:

works great, even on clean hair for some extra texture.  Also the smell, OH MY.  Purchased at Target.

I’ve been in the mood to get some mums planted and this weekend we did that.

Emerson had a girlfriend come play this weekend and watching them made my mama heart so happy.  They were so funny!

This made me laugh out loud.  Cold shoulder trend has been so, so hot this year.  But crack me up!

This right here, is YES.  Only how about 8:45p?  And all the mamas said AMEN!
