Welcome to October | Mommy and Me Monday | 347th ed


Historically for us, October has been one of the busiest months of the year. It could be because we have two kids’ birthdays back to back (the 14th and 13th). Yes, that might have something to do with it. And this week? I’ll be celebrating 10 years of being a mom! AHHHHH….that is totally crazy town to me. And there will be more for them later. It might only go on Facebook or instagram, but it will be there.

In addition to the birthdays, there seem to be a ton of other events, conferences and things that need taking care of.

Not to mention all of the normal things like oil changes, grocery shopping, other store trips and more. #Life.

Mommy and Me Monday | Busy week

PS Since I’m wearing it can we talk about the awesome that is the LILLEbaby Tummy Pad? It makes back carries amazing and also smoothes out my tummy!

Lillebaby Tummy Pad Review

Lately, I’ve been getting my oil changed at a place close to the YMCA. Two birds with one stone. I get some extra steps in walking over to the Y, B gets a ride on my back, and I get my oil changed while I work out and don’t have to sit in a building waiting forever. Win-win (and as Michael Scott would say) WIN! I feel victorious, even. Well, maybe that’s extreme, but when there is so much going on, it’s nice to know I can get things taken care of and keep to my routine as much as possible.

How does October fare for you? Is it the start of the craziness or the calm before the storm?

What were you up to this week?

Since the button code stopped working many moons ago, I took it out. But, if you are adding your link to my link list, please, as a courtesy, add a link back to my site so people can explain and link up themselves if they’d like. After all, that’s the point of the link up!

It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.  Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.

  1. Aww! You two are so beautiful!!!!
    Crazy!!!!! October has been CRAZY!!! And the end of September was nuts too. I feel like I can’t even breathe sometimes. With the three boys in football it is nuts. Add in to that the fact that my oldest (8th grade) has been having major fundraisers for the class trip to DC at the end of the year. I mean major fundraisers. We just did a HUGE rummage sale and that was a major undertaking. We’ve done car washes, brat frys, bake sales. We have a chili cookoff coming up. And I have been very involved. I also volunteer at the school’s library and at the hospital by my house. I feel like a lunatic! BLAH!!!
    I love fall and I wish we had just a little more spare time to enjoy it.
    I hope you get some breathing time in between all the crazy too!
