How do I go from scheduling posts ahead for a month straight to being a month behind? I guess that's what happens when I have a sick child, get sick myself, and take a super hard business class in one month. Even though I'm over a month late, I have some Easter pictures that are just too cute not to share!

Father's Day Away

Since Chris is underway right now, I emailed him this picture with Caden's new Daddy shirt and a sign.
Caden's present to Daddy this year was matching sunglasses since Chris always dresses him like his little mini-me! We are definitely missing our hero today. Happy Father's Day Babe, we miss you!

Good things come in small packages

I have to admit, I always thought the quote was "Big things come in small packages." Either way, I've always agreed with the saying, considering that I am just barely 5 feet tall.

The saying goes for other areas of life as well. Like, have you ever changed a newborn's dirty diaper? Oh nevermind, the saying is really 'good things' not 'big things' come in small packages.

But when it comes to the Venus Snap razor, good things really do come in small packages.

The Venus Snap with Embrace is the perfect on-the-go razor.

 It even comes with a cute little case so that you can throw it in your bag and never worry about going to the beach with leg stubble!

Ok, I think I've used my share of "good things in little packages" references for a few years!

I received the Venus Snap complimentary from Influenster.

June Goals

1. Finish my planner. I purchased a printable planner on etsy, and I've printed most of the sheets, but I still need to find a pretty binder!
2. Juice once a week. I am not a juicer, but I do juice. Once a week is a pretty good balance for me.
3. Make meal planning more of an effort. I haven't been too bad about dinner, but I need to start planning breakfast and lunch so I don't have to deal with low blood sugar symptoms so often.
4. Drink more water. I am and always have been terrible about drinking water. If I can just drink one full glass a day every day, that would be good for me. As bad as that sounds.
5. Enjoy my last summer in San Diego. I just realized that this is my last. summer. in. S.D.!!
1. Talk to my advisor/ finish my school schedule. Done! Three more classes!
2. Spring CleanI've decided theres no point in spring cleaning when I have to clean it from top to bottom in three months anyway. Our deposit is over $1000, and you bet your bottom I'm going to get a majority of that back.
3. Workout twice a week. For the first three weeks of May, I went to the gym twice and did a workout at home once each week. But the last week, Caden was sick and I had a 45 page paper due on Saturday, so we stayed home. This week was out of my control, so I'm calling it a success!
4. Family pictures! FAIL. Chris and I both read the groupon wrong, and it expired at the beginning of May!

What are your goals this month? Any big plans for the summer?

I feel like I've spent the past two weeks either sitting at my computer or with my nose in a book.
I've mentioned it before, but I'm finishing my degree up online by taking one class a month. To put things into perspective, I took over a year off, took 6 months of maternity leave, and a few classes here and there, and I'm only graduating a year late. For the most part, I enjoy this schedule, but every once in a while I get a class that I really need that full semester. Like my capstone business class, where I had to write a 45 page strategic analysis in one week. And thats not because I procrastinated!

To make life even more hectic, Caden got croup for a second time and hand, foot, and mouth in the past week. When I thought Caden had HFM, I felt embarassed because it just sounds like something only dirty little kids get. But in all reality, its a virus that can be passed the same way as a cold!

To make things even worse, literally 5 minutes after I finished my paper at 11 pm Saturday night, I felt like I was going to throw up. Chris made a joke about my body feeling lost without having any homework to do, but I'm still feeling the same way today. So yesterday, my one day off of school consisted of laying around the house and taking a nap. My house looks like a tornado hit it, and I need to go grocery shopping, but I'm going to go sneak in another nap before my son wakes up!
