This may sound is cliche, but where does the time go?! It’s crazy to think that summer is over, A has already been in Pre-K for 3 weeks and E has been in KidsPlay (our church’s Mom’s Morning Out program) for 2 weeks! This new season of our lives has come with some adjusting (mainly mine) and we’ve had to learn how to rework our days. I’ve shared what my typical days looked like when I was working full-time and what my mornings were like when I first started being home full-time, so I thought I should share what these new days look like now that we have yet another new schedule to which we have to adapt. I’m sure it’s no surprise that PlaytexBaby products are still a huge part of this PlaytexMom’s days.

Have you ever been so overwhelmed by everything that needs to be done that you feel somewhat paralyzed and do nothing? If you saw my Instagram stories this week, you know that I was in that place. It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes I get super overwhelmed. I think all moms do, right? The source of this week’s anxiety stems from our stuff being returned from our house fire and needing to be put away/organized plus deadlines, appointments, emails, and regular home-keeping things such as grocery shopping and whatnot. Life is crazy sometimes, am I right?! Thankfully, my mental paralysis didn’t last long and I was able to snap out of it. I’ve teamed up with Perrier to share how I deal with being overwhelmed.

I should have written this (super long) post a week ago. But life got in the way. We had a small fire. It happened on Friday, July 28 around 12:30 pm. We’re all okay and made out with minimal damage to our home.

There’s something about the beginning of a school year that gives me a sense of nostalgia. It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address (name that movie). I remember being a kid and getting so excited about picking out my new school supplies and outfits – carefully planning my first day of school ensemble. Needless to say, since A is heading to pre-school this year (today was her first day), I just couldn’t help myself. She’s been in preschool for 2 years but this is the first year she’s held to a school calendar and schedule. So even though she’s still at the same school, this year feels different and we’re all taking it very seriously. While she doesn’t actually need any supplies for the classroom, we wanted to be sure to have everything we need to support and reinforce her learning at home. Thankfully, Walmart.com’s everyday low prices and smart rollbacks made it convenient and affordable (I saved 15% compared to a competitor!). Here’s what we did to prep for A’s first day of Pre-K.

Have you ever tried on a piece of clothing and thought, “Oh my goodness, this is perfect” and fallen in love immediately? If you’re like me, that’s happened to you way more times than you can count. My latest “Oh my goodness” piece is the Black Surplice Back Tie Tank Top from Filly Flair. Priced at less than $35, this super flattering blouse has some of my favorite elements: v-neck, draped front (because mom gut), flowy material, and it’s transitional!
