It’s Friday and my Momma has finally arrived! We spend yesterday celebrating her first full day in the UK and her 60th birthday. OH what a treat it is having her here with all of us to celebrate on such a big milestone. We are off to Venice next week just me and her for a mother/daughter trip. I can’t hardly contain my excitement. Each time she visits we choose somewhere different to go just the two of us. These trips where I don’t have to share her with anyone else are truly special to me. I know they are to her too as she has never been to Venice.
This week has been a little bit boring waiting for her big arrival. Cleaning and preparing the house and kids. “What to do and what not to do when we have guests here!” That could be a whole manual for my two crazy tots but here are a few #littleloves to share in spite of it.
I finally finished Morgana’s book, The Wrong Knickers. I woke up on Mother’s Day and thought I would take myself off for a hot bath, soy latte, and finish a book. It was blissful. I have never had a bath in the morning before, I was pleasantly surprised how good it felt.
I have been refraining from sharing all my country songs lately here, but with my Momma here this one came to mind and I had to share. As parents I think we all hope our children feel this way about us. It’s a beautiful tear jerker. I think of my Momma when I hear it.
I have somehow missed the first few episodes of Grey’s Anatomy! I know what is wrong with me. While I have desperately tried to find them online to catch up I have it on record from now on. Phew!
I have been wearing my workout gear and new running shoes everyday this past week. I am on a huge mission to tone up and lose the last bit of baby weight before I go to France next month and put on a swimsuit. It’s a first for me to be using kettlebells but I seriously have fallen in love with them. I can work out in half the time and burn more calories with them than anything else, running included. To me, that’s my kind of exercise. I have been finding tons of kettlebell workouts on youtube each night to tone various parts of my body.
I also got dressed up and had afternoon tea with my friend visiting from Spain and a few others. It was so lovely and I feel great carrying a handbag sometimes instead of a diaper bag and we walked around a few shops in Manchester afterwards with no strollers in tow. It was a great time with good company and a great excuse to wear heels!
I am so obsessed with pancakes and crepes I think I really could live off them. There are so many ways you can eat them which makes me never get bored them either. I think this week I had one day where I even ate a crepe for breakfast and mini pancakes for lunch. That may be over kill and not helping my new workout routine any but oh they tasted so good.
I know it’s a bit over the top to beg so I will only politely ask (a few times) so please don’t hate me for this… but it’s that time of year again for the #Bibs2015 I would be ever so grateful if you would VOTE for Let’s Talk Mommy! My blog is my third baby and I would love to be recognized for all my hard work someday.
