oh hey friday! | my favorite posts

i'm going to cheat for oh hey, friday! i'm exhausted. i'm sleepy. i'm a zombie. and i have a big knot in my shoulders.

no no...i'm not going to list five complaints for oh hey, friday! i'm going to cheat and list some of my goals that have been on my mind for the past two weeks.

but first...details:

2 | GOAL #1
THESE are the new running crops i decided on. they'll be on my person by monday!
never did i think i would have such a hankering to get my running clothes back on. aside from being incredibly tired...i can tell my legs are itching to start running again. i'm not sure what my workout schedule will look like here in a few weeks when i get cleared to start sweating again. i think i'll have to work something out with my farmer. but if it means i'll need start waking up at 5 am to workout...well...i guess that's the bed i made so i'll lay in it.
3 | GOAL #2
before sawyer was born i made some frozen meals to help us make it through the first weeks. well, with my sister being here we have yet to tap into any of those delicious goodies waiting for us. even with a stockpile of frozen meals, still, i would like to make an effort to meal plan weekly and create some sort of schedule that will ensure i'm not scrambling at 5 pm to put together something healthy for my farmer and my turtle...oh...and myself too. 
4 | GOAL #3
my turtle, my gal, my heart - she's been such a trooper this past week with the adjustment of having sawyer in the house. and as amazing as sawyer is...well...she's kind of lame right now. (lame in the very best way possible.) i just mean that she sleeps 18+ hours a day...and when she's not sleeping she's attached to me or she's logging her 16th visit to the changing table. lame, right?
so my third goal is to log more quality one on one time with my turtle during these first months when sawyer still needs lots of sleep-time. 
5 | GOAL #4
blogggggg. i have so many goodies i want to blog...but i've literally been passing out at 8 pm (right after we put kaye down) each night. i want to blog sawyer's birth story, my must-have nursing goodies, my favorite holiday decor...and all the while give September FARM sponsors love each week. 
this has nothing to do with the goal of blogging...but it's just so so sweet.
i'm going to give myself one more week off...and then it's time to get busy on these goals...even the working out goal. i'll start off with walking a mile...slow and steady...just like a turtle.
happy weekend you fine fine people.
get linked up!



  1. Love that sweet picture of your farmer and his second gal. So sweet! Don't put too much pressure on yourself, Mama! The fact that you are blogging at all is amazing to me:) You'll get it down soon enough and can share all that fun stuff with us then. Hope your pictures go well today!:)

  2. Can I just say that you're a rock star?! A newborn, a 2 year old, and you're still showing up here to blog at all right now. Rock star status.

  3. Love the picture in Number 4! Perfection.

  4. Those pictures of you guys with the baby... nothing more beautiful!

  5. Girl, you are so NOT crazy for wanting to run again! I started walking three days postpartum and then up'd it to running at the three week mark. I say get after it as soon as you feel up to the challenge!

    Also? I'm super impressed you're still consistently blogging! Seriously, superwoman.

  6. I would say you get to cheat for a few more weeks :) And that photo of you, Kaye, and Sawyer? Perfection!

  7. Farmed and turtle 2.0 are so cute I can't remember anything else... whoops!!

  8. Keep up the good work mama! 2 kids is effing tough! I honestly have about 22 draft posts going and can rarely finish with these two little boys running a muck! Start writing the birth story before you forget it! I wrote Tracens almost 1.5 years after having him and am kicking myself lol Sending mama kisses from the Mittin!

  9. Great goals but take it easy new momma of two - it will all come in time! Love them and enjoy the journey to achieving them x
