Welcome to Thoughts for Thursday...I have a few random thoughts to share with you from the week plus an adorable new sponsor that has me pining for a trip to the islands soon.
+ Anyways, we have been so lucky with the weather this week. I have been feeling a little better these last few days and trying to get out of the house as much as possible. The other day, I stopped by one of my favorite little spots for a quick lunch. I sat outside with this grilled avocado sandwich with an olive tapenade mixture and melted cheese. Ya'll this sandwich is to die for and I don't even like OLIVES. I can't explain it. It's heavenly.
+ Brody has been wanting to be outside every chance he can get. It's honestly been the best thing for me too. His little "school" is on spring break this week, so he's been home with me all week. We've been on lots of walks and getting use of all his outdoor toys in our backyard.
+ My precious and sweetest cousin sent me the most thoughtful gift this week. She sent me a gift card to the spa because she knew how bad I've been feeling and felt so sad for me. It just so happened it was to my favorite spa and I immediately cashed it in for a facial this week. I've been trying to make my skin more of a priority lately as I have never had great skin routines and as I age, I'm starting to recognize it a little more. So this was such a nice treat!!
+ It has been since January that I was at my last Pure Barre class. I've been so sick that walking was the most active thing I could concur since getting pregnant. This week I made myself go on Monday and Tuesday and it made me feel so much better! It feels great to be back even though it's like starting over all over again. I hope I continue to feel well enough to make it a few times a week. It gets my head right :)
+ I started a day in the life post draft a little while back and it's just been sitting in my draft box. They are really some of my favorite posts to read and I am past due on writing one. I love the idea of being able to look back on my day in the life post with just Brody once we add another kid into the mix. I'm super curious what "day in the lives" look like for Mom's of two these days. I'm sure I will learn to juggle just like everyone else :)
+ I'm excited to introduce my newest sponsor, Christina, who blogs over at The New Mrs. She not only shares my love for traveling to beautiful places, but she also works in the real estate business which was my passion before becoming a SAHM! She started her blog in similar fashion to me as a way to document her wedding and building their first home and is now looking to expand her readership. I hope you will show her some love below and enjoy her blog as much as I have. And don't miss her fab giveaway below too!
I'm Christina, a 26 year old living in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania
I am loving newlywed life as I recently married my husband, Derek on September 6, 2014. We recently added on our lovable puppy, Stella (named after her daddy's favorite beer) to make us a family of three… for now :)
I work for my family's real estate business and am lucky enough to call my mom and brother my co-workers! My schedule gives me a little extra flexibility to be a part-time stay at home wife (SAHW) some days too!
Traveling is at the top of the list; we love to plan vacations and do so frequently! I love my new "wifey" roles; more specifically, I enjoy testing out new recipes, decorating our home and hosting any chance I get! Walking Stella/working out, shopping, reality tv watching and blog hopping are some other favorites and of course spending time with my husband and our family and friends!
Why I Blog
I started blogging - as "The Future Mrs." about a month after we got engaged as a little scrapbook for myself to keep track of all the little moments like wedding events and building our new home as well as to keep our out of town family/friends in the loop! I learned so many things from many great blogs so now "The New Mrs." I've recently decided to grow my little blog and share my experiences as a housewife, travels, ideas and continue keeping a scrapbook for myself of our life!
What I Blog About
A little bit of everything! First and foremost, every day life as well as our traveling adventures. Entertaining tips, new recipes, wedding/marriage topics, some DIY projects and a little bit of fashion. We're still finishing up decorating our new house so lots of home posts too. Being obsessed with the holidays is probably an understatement so plenty of holiday posts - Usually most of the month of December is dedicated to Christmasy things. Pictures of Miss Stella are usually involved as well!
I hope you make a little visit over to my blog and say hello! I'm loving this blogging community and look forward to continuing meeting some new faces!
Thank you so much, Annie for having me!
