I CONFESS....

/ that I was putting the girls into their carseats at daycare this week and Sutton ran off into the street (around my car). I panicked and ran after her freaking out. What if a car had been driving by? Would they have stopped and not hit her? Having children is tough, but trying to wrangle two toddlers into the car alone is just plain hard and not fair. My mama heart dropped at the thought of anything happening to her.

/ that I am still pissed off at the waiter and our favorite breakfast spot for burning my waffle and then just forgetting about us like it wouldn't matter. Who (awesomely) brings out pancakes for our girls and then proceeds to wait 45 or so minutes later to tell us our food was burned and then they still couldn't get it out?

/ that I just want to treat myself to ALL the things since getting promoted. #Nsale sure give me the KS earrings I want, a new peacoat, jeans and the softest t-shirt.

/ that we treated ourselves to my celebratory promotion dinner last night at our favorite steakhouse. And it was heavenly. I indulged on wine, a tableside warm spinach and bacon salad, steak, potatoes au gratin, sauteed veggies and dessert. And it was worth every single calorie. Good thing I am running at lunch today.

/ that even though my girls have been crazy when we try to take them out to dinner/breakfast, it has been such a fun time with them lately. They are showing so much personality. Sutton loves to walk up to me (while I am sitting on the ground with them), put her hands on my face and give me kisses. Then Sutton will come up behind me and hug me and play with my hair and Avery will come over and start playing with my hair while talking to me. Avery loves throwing the ball back and forth and bringing her sister her paci and blanket. I literally can't get enough of their cuteness.

/ that today is Miracle Treat Day with Dairy Queen and I plan on getting myself an Oreo blizzard after lunch today. Any excuse to donate money to the girls' miracle hospital.

/ that this 100 degree weather is killing me right now. We can't go on walks, it sucks to be outside later than noon and the sweat gross. Can we drop back down into the 80s please?

  6. Thanks for the reminder of DQ... its always a good excuse to support a good cause AND get some yummies.

    Having twin nieces, I feel you on the struggle of dealing with 2 at once. Its a chore. Thank God no cars were coming when the escapee took off ;) thinking 'what could have happened'sometimes stops the heart

  7. Wooohooo for celebrating your promotion! And my heart would have dropped as well in the parking lot. Just know that there will come a day when they will be able to open their doors, get in and buckle, all by themselves. I know this, because it happened to me last year and I felt like I had hit a new parenting jackpot! Keep up the good fight :) Have a great day.

    1. Thank you! That is so very true. I don't want to wish their stages/milestones away to get to the next, but some of those things are really nice to look forward to. Hope you have a great day too.

  8. I hear you on how fast those toddlers move!! I know that exact feeling. Yay for wine and steakhouse! It's not 100 here, but 93 is just too hot to be outside with the kids (and no pool). Have a great day!

  10. Oh my GOSH, I'm so glad that Sutton is OK. That is the hardest thing about having two tiny kids... it's like, what do you do with one of them while you're putting the other one in?? Us moms really need at least 4 arms.

    And that dinner sounds delicious. And you should definitely treat yourself to all of the NSale goodies... well deserved!

  11. I can't even imagine two of Ben running around! I would be in constant panic mode. I'm so impressed that you do it! And, yay for supporting the DQ Blizzard day. Awesome!

    1. It definitely is. Once they are on the move, you have to keep a really close eye on them. And thank you so much!

  13. Mila used to make a run for it whenever we set her down next to the car - scariest thing ever. She has finally developed a fear of moving cars, thankfully, so she now tends to stay put (knock on wood). So I feel you on that one! I don’t know how you do it with two! Yay for promotion celebrations - definitely treat yourself, you deserve it!!

  15. I'm so glad she was okay, I can imagine how that scared you! Sounds like a yummy steakhouse celebration, love meals like that. Glad you treated yourself to some Nordy sale stuff too. I got jeans and a peacoat too, i wonder if we got the same!?

  17. Congrats on the promotion! Totally calls for all the #nsale purchases. We finally got a rainy day here, so while it's still steamy at least there's no heat advisory. #allthepuddlejumping

  18. Congratulations on your promotion! That's so exciting!
    I feel you on the first one. Liam ran away from me several times while I'm trying to wrangle multiple kids and it's terrifying. XOXO
