In The Rearview: May + Happy Hour

Man, this month has gone by fast! How is that it feels like it just began and here we are wrapping things up? I kept feeling like I had more time and now it seems like it's just slipping away and things that were appeared to be so far away are indeed here. Case in point, my Sweet Pea is graduating next week. Graduating. As in going into Junior High. I'm kind of all into my feelings about it. It feels like it's been only a few minutes since she was starting kindergarten and now.....she's a young woman. I literally can't even. And then there's my 35th birthday looming on the horizon. I love my birthday and am excited for it as always but it's been such a crazy last few months I haven't even planned to do anything! That's totally not like me but I guess that's just the season I'm in right now.

On the flip side, I've been writing a lot lately. Both here and over on MommyNoire. Some of the stuff for here has yet to make an appearance but it will soon. There will be a lot of transparency in the coming weeks as I'm in a place of introspection and reflection.

But on MommyNoire it's all about style: home, beauty, what to wear and skincare.  I touched a little on restraining those impulse buys and of! I would love if y'all would go check out my work over there. I feel truly blessed to be doing something I love and making a living at it while still being able to hang with my babies and go meet my husband for the occasional midweek lunch. It's been such an adventure to see my dreams begin to pan out but there is still so much more I want to do in this writing world. Pray for some direction for me please?

I've been working my tush off with this #30dayfitnesschallenge and even took it a step further and did #5daysofjillian to really push it. That was fun and motivating. Now that I'm nearing the end I see what I could do more but hindsight is 20/20 eh? June starts a new month and I'm committed to keeping up the hard work because I love seeing the results. Debating about whether or not to post "before and after" photos because I'm not sure I can see much of a difference yet and I'm also not sure if I want to open myself up to that kind of exposure. We'll see how I feel at the end of June.

This month has been all about motivation an finishing strong. I used to think that was such a cliche growing up but I've used it more times than I care to admit in the last few weeks when talking to Sweet Pea about final projects and while pushing through my workouts each day. I look forward to a busy and exciting summer with the kids but right now I'm just trying to make it through the next few weeks without missing something and no tears! Ha!

Now- to lighten the mood let's talk libations shall we? I just got some popsicle molds from IKEA this past week and I'm itching to use them. Then my girlfriend tagged me in a pin and I just can't wait to give these a try. I mean, y'all know I like a good margarita and The Chic Site's Strawberry Margarita Popsicles just seem like the bee's knees. Hello, Summer!!

Oh and I'll make some virgin ones for the kids because they deserve a refreshing treat as well.

What's on your agenda for the weekend?
