My Mommy Mind

  • This past week was a week of “treats.” I love those kind of surprise weeks.
  • Happy (day after) Mother’s Day to all! I was able to celebrate with my 2 favorite kiddos, my amazing husband, my fantastic mom, my hard-working dad, my loving Grandma, and a slew of incredible aunts, uncles, cousins, cousins children and neighbors. We had a fantastic day! It’s a rare treat to all be together, so I soak it in when I can. We were even able to Skype with my birthday brother the day before, so the gang felt all there!
  • My husband and kids gifted me with my favorite treat – CUPPY CAKES! Cupcakes from Jones Bros in Omaha, winner of Food Networks “Cupcake Wars?” Um, yes, please!
  • Before I knew I would be bestowed such greatness, Justin and I went out for some post-kiddo-bedtime dessert Saturday. Wheatfields was the winner. Holy smokes! Omaha has amazing sweets! If you haven’t been, it’s a must-go! I brought home a little treat for my mom – a mini banana chocolate cream pie. Heaven.
  • A new report released last week projects that 43% of Americans could be obese by 2030. I blame this on a lot of things: laziness, high fructose corn syrup, fast food, 64 ounce pops, copious amounts of sweet treats (see last 2 bullets), etc. When I think of what it looks like in the grocery store, I picture this. Are you kidding me? I love oreos as much as the next guy, but that’s just fatty fatter-tons. A triple-double? Stupid.
  • I’ve committed to getting back in the groove of working out this week. Here’s to never seeing these bonus 12 baby pounds again. Treat binge is over.
  • My mom and I attended a retirement dinner hosted by her school district last week. What a fun night to honor her years of service… even if she hates standing in front of a crowd! WOO HOO!!!
  • At the party I re-connected with an old friend and another old friends parents. A true treat.
  • When Justin and I were out this weekend, we met a girl who now attends my beloved high school. She was THREE when I graduated. THREE. Damn.
  • Speaking of feeling crazy old, two of my favorite neighbors who I also got to babysit had babies in the last few months. They are both amazing moms. It’s a treat to see them all grown!
  • My favorite moment from the weekend? Two chubby toddler arms squeezing my neck at last nights bedtime with a sloppy wet kiss and those precious four words: “I wuv you, Mommy! Sweetest treat there is!

    Favorite moment from the weekend? Let’s hear it!
