Little Love Notes

This week has been tough. This new mama gig is kicking my butt.  I’ve worn pajamas, all day, every day this week; and I’m not sad about it.  Juggling a newborn with a pretty tough case of reflux, two jobs (law and blog), and trying to function day-to-day, has proven way more difficult than I ever imagined.  But thankfully, I have a pretty awesome support system, and I’m just taking it one step at a time.  The day I manage to do two things for myself – like exercise and shower – will be a big day, but until then, I’m wearing my prettiest pajamas today, and I may just order myself an absurd amount of pad thai for lunch, because I can.

And with that, a few little love notes …

Dear podcast motivation, Jess Lively interviewed Taylor Sterling all about juggling work and motherhood … I’m not sure there’s some big secret here, but hey, I’m thankful for podcasts that I can listen to while bouncing the baby, and it’s nice to hear I’m not alone!

Dear awesome blogger/brand collaborations, Kate of Wit & Delight teamed up with Target to bring us one adorable line of bar cart and party supplies.

Dear never-ending wanderlust, nine places I’d like to travel to next.

Dear fellow shopaholics, Otte NY (one of my faves), is offering their biggest sale of the season with 20% off everything.  I may just need to start building my catbird ring stack.

Dear craft-savvy, you have got to make this DIY tube bar necklace (and send one my way, while you’re at it!)

Dear fabulous apartment makeover, it’s amazing what a little black paint does to these windows.

Dear Halloween costume inspiration, clearly I’m going with a coat.  (It’s never too soon to start planning.  I LOVE Halloween.)

Dear weekend baking, toasted marshmallow waffle sandwiches.

Happy weekend!

    Hang in there, Lexi! You will, sleep, shower and wear regular clothes again, I promise. And it’s never too early to start planning for Halloween. I’ve had my costume planned for months:)
