Bethany from The Posh Home and I are back to our Weekly Wednesday Posts and I’m so happy to be back sharing with you each week! To say the last 5 days have been rough is an understatement. I’ve done this mothering thing with two other sweet girls and never ran into diaper rash this bad. My poor baby was so uncomfortable and in so much pain my heart was breaking. We are both in need of sleep and I hope we get it tonight. Anyway, today I’m sharing some things that have brought a little happiness during these days.
Podcasts you can’t miss
I had some time to just sit and listen because I held her while she napped. I took it as a little “me” time and listened to 2 podcasts that help me through so much! I’m sure you’ve heard of Rachel Hollis, if you haven’t she’s inspiring!! She wrote the book I’m reading, Girl Wash Your Face and has a new one coming out next year on business. She has a podcast I tune into weekly!
My friend introduced me to Kara Loewentheil. She is a life coach and even though I have never met her, she has coached me many weeks through her podcast. She is real and gets to the heart of issues. I appreciate her candor, honesty and how she truly wants to help women live their best lives. You need to check her out!
Funny Gets me Through it
It’s weeks like this that make me need to laugh and I’ve definitely done that with these three comedians! Leeann and Michelle are my favorite duo! These ladies are moms and just know how to make me laugh when I need it most. Have you seen their latest video? I can’t even handle it. I think I need to write in my own question and see if they answer it on their “podcast”.
And I’m sure you’ve come across John Crist on Facebook and if you haven’t, I’m sorry! Go find him NOW! I first saw his VBS video while my daughter was in VBS and about fell off my rocker! He will always give you tears from laughing so hard!
because retail therapy is my jam
I couldn’t make it out to the stores this week but I’ve been eyeing some things for my upcoming Europe trip and the Fall season that will hit Phoenix….in November. I also knew that some of these will sell out so now is the time to get them. I’ve been obsessed with these two stores lately and since there isn’t one of them close by I have to shop them online. Dynamite and Vici Collection are on point! If I could order everything I probably would but it’s a good thing I can’t! My husband would be so mad! There are actual brick and mortar stores and I’ve visited one before. Dynamite is in the Fashion Show Mall in Vegas. You Must Go!!!! You’ll thank me later!
Vici is in So Cal and…oh how I miss So Cal! They are also in Nor Cal but I am not from there so I’ll stick with So Cal! I’ll be visiting this store in December with my bestie and shopping my heart out! Until then I will just order online and drool at their new pieces that I just can’t get yet!
This is all I’ve had time for this week….podcasts, retail therapy and watching funny videos. At leasts it’s how I’ve spent a little me time. I actually don’t know when I last put on makeup and that’s ok! I was called to something greater than me. Raising 3 little ladies comes at a cost of sacrificing myself and my needs. I am ok with that because they are the greatest gift I’ve been given and also the greatest gift I could ever give. Tonight I will rest knowing I am doing exactly what I’ve been called to do and sprinkling in a little fun where I can. I know more time for me will come and maybe even this week.
If you are in a similar boat as me, I hope to encourage you to find some things that will make you happy this week and now it will get better! A friend once told me each week will get better and she was right. I hold onto that statement more than she probably realizes and I’m so glad she gave me that wisdom.
Go check see Bethany’s (The Posh Home) weekly favorites! I know I always find a new favorite too!
