The girls started D.A.N.C.E this week!! Excitement has engulfed our house. The girls are utterly giddy and cannot stop tapping their feet or doing any form of leap and turn through the house! They've been introduced to their new teams and seem to be fitting in exceptionally well, Yay! I've also started my carpooling schedule with 3 other mom's and epically failed on the 2nd day by forgetting to pick one of Alexa's teammates up for class. I think I've apologized over a dozen times now and I'm almost certain they all think I'm crazy! Oops! Poor Alexa is completely embarrassed! I'm also the mom who asked to take 100 pictures on the first day, which is when Alexa went into this whole tirade of "i'msorryguysmymomwritesthisblogandneedstotakeover100picturesofusadaybutit'skindacoolbecausewegetalotoffreestuffandwe'rekindalikemodelsandyeahsosorryinadvanceforallthepictures". And it had to be written like that because, like...that's the way she said it, super fast and like, duh!
She's turning 10 soon, you guys, feel sorry for me!!
Oh, and I kinda tell them they are super famous models otherwise it would be nearly impossible to get them to pose for pics. So, there you have it, I suck at carpooling and feed white lies to my kids!
Speaking of Alexa turning 10, the girls both have birthdays coming up next month, which means party talk has been going on in our house. The issue is they both have so many damn friends. Not that it's a bad thing. I want my kids to have all the friends in the world, but when they start talking 'slumber parties' and wanting to invite all their school friends, dance friends, church friends, neighborhood friends..ect..it gives me straight up anxiety! I think we have a couple ideas worked out, but haven't fully committed, so I'll save the details for another post.
Last weekend we took the girls to See's Candies to use a gift card that had been burning a chocolate loving hole in our pockets. We bought enough candy to last us an entire year, but somehow we managed to eat it all in just a few days. We also took the girls on a more extensive school clothes shopping trip to P.S., Old Navy & Target. It was a lot of fun actually. I spent the rest of the weekend doing a lot of cleaning and organizing. I worked mostly on closets...specifically the girls'. I purged a lot of their clothes and bought some closet cubbies for each of them. So far we're loving it. They picked out all their clothes for the entire week Sunday night and it's been working wonders for Adam in the morning, as he's the one that's typically getting them ready and on the bus. Plus, their closet and dresser drawers have stayed exceptionally neat and tidy. It's only been 4 days, but I'm hoping that this little bit of organization will keep in tact the rest of the school year at least.
Adam and I leave for Vegas next week. It feels like it has crept right up on us, however, this week leading up to it has gone super slow. Isn't that how is usually goes, tho! We're pretty excited about it and could both definitely use the break and some time just the two of us, but it's no secret I'm terrified of leaving the girls for 5 days. My mom will be with them for part of the time and Adam's mom the rest. So, they are in good hands, but still....WAH! I just really hope I can go there and enjoy myself instead of worry so much about what's going on back home. #realtalk
I'm so excited for Fall. It's such a pretty time of year, which unfortunately doesn't last nearly as long as I'd like it to. A few people have been blogging about sweaters, boots, scarves, pumpkins, leaves, PSL's and everything else Fall related, it's kinda hard not to get excited. As soon as I get back from hot and sunny Las Vegas, it's going to be all about FALL! Temps in the 50's today make it seem like Fall already, but I am just going to go ahead and pretend it's not here until I get back from my trip!!
