So when I do have a quiet evening to myself or I'm not running around completing chores during nap time, I like to sit down and relax. Here's what you might find me doing...
1. Drinking Hot Chocolate!
Now that the nights are colder, I love to curl up on the couch and sip some hot chocolate, with a peppermint candle burning nearby. Something about sipping on a cup of something hot is so soothing.
2. Taking a Bath
This is a new one for me. I'm usually a shower girl. I like to be in and out so I can do other things. But lately, I've found taking a warm bath to be like going on a mini vacation! I'll read a book, light a candle, and practically fall asleep. Hey Santa, if you're listening, I could use some new bubble bath and bath bombs!
I've always loved reading. As a kid I walked around the house with a book in front of my nose all the time. It's so much harder to read now, when I know there are so many other things I need to be doing or wanting to catch up on our DVR when my husband is home. But I love, love reading and I'm trying to find some new books to read so I can get back at it. Any recommendations?
I love this blog. I've come and gone away from this blog many times, but every time I come back, I remember how much I love keeping it. I love reading other blogs, I love commenting, receiving comments, thinking up blog posts, seeing what other moms are struggling with, and how they spend their days. It's such a great outlet and I have to say that I'm obsessed!
I used to be very good at keeping journals. Now whenever I remember or want to document a special day, I'll get out my journal and write. It's such a nice way to reflect and be thankful for everything we have in our lives. My favorite part about journaling is flipping back through the pages and seeing how much has changed, especially about Miss A. I'm making a New Years resolution early- write in my journal weekly!
Alright, moms, how do you spend your "me-time" when your lucky enough to get it?
