I’m (almost) ashamed to admit lex and i started listening to christmas music this week. . . i “accidentally” found a station in the car that plays it non-stop and when i saw lex dancing to it i knew resisting was over. So bring on the holiday cheer!
BOXING GLOVES. I got my very own pair of gloves this week (pink. because i’m so hardcore) and i’m working on becoming a very well rounded gym rat. Between the ropes, using these gloves to beat up my trainer who forced me to use the ropes (seriously, those suckers SUCK), all the random various other forms of torture at the gym, and the fun stuff my pilates studio offers (TRX, reformer, trampolines) i’m wondering why after two weeks of my new routine i’m not seriously ripped.
TODDLER BEDDING. Earlier this week as lex was wrapping up nap-time; i heard her little voice over the monitor saying “climb, climb, climb”. So i ran my butt up stairs to find her halfway out of her crib. . . Sneaky little lady. So the quest for cute toddler bedding began, ended a day later, and is officially all en-route to our door. Although i’m in serious denial about it, and in even bigger denial about kissing any hope of ever sleeping in again goodbye.
PLASTIC MASON JARS. I found this gem of a cup at PBK earlier this week (its sold out online. sad face)- and we’ve used it ever since. Its GENIUS. Its a fully plastic mason jar- even the lid is fancy plastic. Lex LOVES it because it looks like my cup, and we love it because she drinks a TON of milk from it. Its also a clear favorite for smoothies.
Blender Bottle. Why am i the LAST person to know about the beauty of these babies? Now that i’m finally motivated again, eating right, and working out i’m back into protein shakes. Normally that would mean me throwing my shake into a normal bottle with some ice and trying to avoid drinking those gross protein powder clumps. UNTIL NOW. The magic coil ball in these cups is life changing. My post-work-out protein shakes have officially been stepped up a notch. I swear i’m the last one to discover the magic of the blender bottle.
THE DENTIST. Lex had her first dentist appointment yesterday- little lady has a chipped tooth we wanted them to take a look at. Let’s just say i’m glad we survived- she was not a model patient and spent the whole time in the chair crying hysterically while the dentist counted her teeth. That’s all they did- COUNT HER TEETH and lex was still dramatic. But we survived, lex was all smiles after getting a gold puppy balloon, and we found out she’s currently getting all FOUR canines (at once. i swear its a cruel joke. and explains why she’s been ms cranky pants). Fingers crossed those puppies break through soon.
