Mom Monday real talk: I have the hardest time ever buying stuff for myself so I end up filling the online cart with stuff and then never check out. 😂. I would so much rather buy clothes for mike or my babies. The majority of my clothes are yoga pants and T-shirt’s and in my closet everything I own is atleast 5 years old cause again I just don’t shop for myself. So when @vicidolls sent me clothes i felt the need to document adorable cute clothes without spit up on me!
Reflecting....I miss playing Alex. She was spunky, full of sass and a character you most likely started off hating and then hopefully ended up loving. I always loved her though even through her hot mess. As I read through scripts and parts now I wonder what’s next and though I have no idea, I’m excited and hopeful to be able to play such a fun character again! Who hated Alex at first? And what kind of thing do you hope I’ll be cast in next?!?
A few days ago Mike said “hey grab your glass of wine and meet me on the couch”. So I grabbed my glass, plopped down and he said “how are you”? The days before it felt like we were passing each other and asking the same questions like “how was drop off”, Or “how did Jace eat”. But we sat down and really talked. It was so nice to be connected. Couples challenge: Give it a try tomorrow with ur love. has it been weeks or years you feel you have been just passing each other?
A few days ago something incredibly scary happened. I woke up with mom panic and looked at the monitor and saw Jace’s face completely covered. Now as a mom I KNOW I put the swaddle on right. It was the appropriate size etc. he has bad reflux so he squirms a lot and he managed to get this fleece swaddle over his head. The fact this company promotes safe sleep baffles me. I have done so much research the past few days and we will now be using @woombieusa swaddles. I ended up deleting the monitor picture because it disturbed me that much. The what if’s that played in my head left me sick. All I encourage you moms to do is read the swaddle reviews when you buy. I was NOT the only one this happened to.

I wanted to make every excuse in the book today to not workout cause of being tired from Jace’s sleep regression or just from the mere fact of being lazy but this little girl helped motivate me! But also bescause my trainer @erinoprea is a badass and I always feel great after. I honestly feel so much better after I work out though and I need to remind myself how important self care is. Agree?
Open apology to my husband: I’m a very sarcastic person and I joke a lot which when people don’t know me it might be taken the wrong way. But sometimes there is something under a joke and it can hurt someone else. And that’s what happened on this weeks podcast and I’m sorry. For me , sometimes my way of coping with pain and triggers is deflecting and making a joke. But that’s not the healthiest especially when it can hurt someone I care about. Truth is, the past year Mike has shown up in every way I could have hoped for. He’s an incredible father, and has been working his ass off for our family, me, and most importantly himself so I’m sorry mike and I love you and so thankful for you and our family and all your hard work!... #whinedown #podcast (also disclaimer: joking or not, from this episode on I’m gonna stop bringing “it” up because it is in the past and that’s where it needs to stay, **unless it’s to help people**so y’all help be my accountability)
