Spa Day, Stay at Home Mom Duties and Anxiety

Thank you for the well wishes! I was sick up until Christmas Day but I still ate my face off. Well, I did as much eating as my stomach would allow and after days of liquids...two meals seemed like a lot!

Where have I been? I needed a little break. With the weight of a job that makes me miserable and figuring out what comes next...I just needed some time to think and breathe. A mental break of sorts because my anxiety was in high gear (and still kinda is but its more manageable).

Here's a snippet of what I've been up to:


Santa sent me to the spa the Saturday after Christmas and I was excited because it was my first fancy pants massage. I'm thinking about working them into my regular schedule if possible.

Harper's daycare conveniently closed for the entire length of my vacation. Mercy! That child's energy is limitless. Because my trainer wants me to incorporate yoga into my routine, Harper and I would practice some together. She's better than I am! Ha! That little lady would do handstands all day if I would let her.


Obviously. ;)


Influenster sent me this swanky new antiperspirant to try. More information is to come. It's pretty cool and definitely is one of those products I wouldn't have necessarily bought. You'll see.


Mike and I were able to go out on New Year's Eve for some much needed couple time. I even shaved my legs.

I'll post this year's goals next week. There are some big, scary, exciting things planned for the year.

This post was fueled by a rice cake with peanut butter, coffee and Bag Raiders.

  1. I'm glad that you got to take a bit of a breath, and I think that having Harper practice with you is a fabulous idea! On one level--it will really help her develop her coordination. On another level, it will help you laugh--yoga is meant to be practiced with an easy spirit. SMILE!
    And you look gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous.

    1. Thank you! I may need to buy a "yota" mat that is especially for her. She keeps stealing mine!

  2. How fun! We didn't go out on NYE, we went to my inlaws house and watched the amazing race on hulu all night. :)
