I got the blog post...

Ya'll know I've been raving about the #getsmart @tiltsmarthome blinds. πŸ‘I'm obsessed!
-
-
-
I have to mention another thing I have come to love about these is that I can adjust the blinds from my app according to the kids particular needs. #sponsored -
-
-
For example, our daughter likes to hang out in here and do her nails, read, chat on the phone with her bff.  All the teen girl things. πŸ’…
-
-
-
And if it's scheduled for them to be closed (based on the hot afternoon sun holla temp sensitive blinds)  I can adjust them to open downward enough to give her light while still keeping most of the heat out. -

Teen happy, mom happy, wallet happy πŸ’° #tilt

LOVE your home. πŸ’– I create the spaces I do because they make us feel happy, cozy, comforted, relaxed and fun.  Spaces we want to hang out in!

I'm stoked to share with you that I'm a new #purplepartner embarking on their 100 night trial.  We are a few days in and I've been dying to share this with you! πŸ’œ

You can see our youngest little is testing out the mattress, just prior to this photo he was assessing it's "jump" factor.  The verdict "Mom! It's SO squishy and soft! Can I keep jumping puuuhhhllleeeaaassseee?!" -
-
-
Tulip was giving the @purple dog bed a test drive, which she literally spent every moment on until she passed a few days later.  We are so grateful her last days were spent in such comfort and support enjoying this bed. ❀
-
-
-
Now our other pups are enjoying while we get a feel for the mattress!
-
-
-
It's been a bit over a week and I must say we are very impressed! I have lots of back issues while the hubs gets numb arms from side sleeping.  So far this has made a difference in our quality of sleep! πŸ˜ͺ
-
-
-
I am really looking forward seeing what kind of longer term usage benefits there might be from this mattress, which is one of the coolest innovations (in my humble opinion) in sleep.  Holla 4" purple smart comfort grid!! And coming from a horrible sleeper that's saying somethin 😁 #lifeonpurple
-
-
-
Hit up my stories where I share the process from delivery to intial impressions!

-
-
I'll share my honest thoughts and experiences with you during this 100 night trial so you can make an informed decision on what's best for your sleep! πŸ›

Mom’s Taking a Time Out

taking a break, taking a time out, cut yourself some slack, lifestyle, grown up time out, mom, time for yourself, breather

I’ve been pushing myself really hard the last couple of months, since school started in August.Β  We homeschool and have for several years now so it wasn’t just the school but the football and the hockey practices which equaled activities every night of the week except Sunday.Β  Then there’s keeping up with blog posts (cause I REALLY LOVE sharing with you all) and the grocery shopping and bill paying and ear infections, haircuts, colds and oil changes.Β  Then I started designing my fall ORC space by the beginning of September.Β  It’s not just designing the space but researching sources for materials and coming up with DIY projects and scheduling out the challenge. And we can’t forget the play dates, the hubs crazy work hours and having friends over. Whew!

On top of all of that I’m a terrible sleeper and for the last few months I’ve been running in an almost constant foggy state of mind the latter half of the day, every day.Β  Where’s that sleeping beauty potion?!

This probably sounds like a big ole complain fest and maybe it partly is but I’m sitting here toward the end of all of this crazy/chaos and things are slowing down just a smidge.Β  Football is almost over, just a couple more weeks to go and this is the last week of hockey.Β  The ORC space is almost done (although I’m sharing it all step by step each week for the next 5 weeks! Check out the 1st post and plan here) Which means I am cutting myself a big ole hunk of slack on all of the things I haven’t been keeping up on (house cleaning, not gonna lie, has taken a ride down the big slide other than the usual vacuuming and dishes) and the laundry, oh boy with 6 people in this house we regularly have to dig through the hampers loaded with clean clothes I haven’t had time to fold (oh maybe 3-4 weeks worth, cue the covering my eyes and pretending I don’t see it).Β  Or bathing and grooming the dogs, something I’ve been meaning to do for weeks and although they are stinky I still snuggle them.Β  (I did manage to get one done last week! Only 2 to go, Woohoo!)

I know I have talked about this before but it’s important to remind ourselves (myself included!!) that it’s ok to not do it all.Β  Especially when things are so crazy and you’re overwhelmed to the point that you can’t keep your head on straight and you’re being spun and torn in 10,000 directions.Β  We had some new friends over for dinner the other day and I would always cook a homemade meal, but I just didn’t have the energy or the time to even think about it so we did Papa Murphy’s. It was still good and nobody cared, although I did feel a little bad about it, I knew I just had to let it go. (cue the Elsa music)

My parents came to visit the very next morning and I would usually have a spotlessly clean house with shining everything and a room with fresh sheets, towels and guest soaps set out and ready.Β  Since our guest room also happens to be our daughter’s bedroom I have to get on it toot sweet the day of.Β  Truth bomb folks, I didn’t have time to get to changing the sheets and fresh towels and just gave them the sheets and towels to do it later that day. (I know, cringe right?!) Does it sound bad?Β  Probably, but I was SO exhausted and they got here early and it was really no big deal.

We gotta cut ourselves some slack and say “I’m taking a friggin break damn it!”Β  I was supposed to do the treadmill today and groom another pup, but I just said “I’m taking the day off.” Time out for me, and I WANT IT! Put me in the naughty corner!Β  I want to enjoy my family, actually make a home cooked dinner, and be present.Β  It feels good, especially after almost 2 months of blur.Β  Tomorrow is workout day again, homeschooling and bills and laundry all await me too.Β  But it can stay just where it is…..tomorrow.Β  I’m in a time out.

Do you feel overwhelmed and like you are involved in and missing everything at once?Β  I’d love to hear from you!!

And the subscriber thingy is over there (nods to the right) if you enjoyed this lil chat.Β  You only get notifications of new posts when they go up!

Love and Hugs and to Grown Up Time Outs!!!
