in june 2010, our lives got turned upside down in the best possible way: the birth of our awesome kiddo, john. in october 2013, brother charlie charged into our life to change the status quo again. and june 2016 brought us brother ben to round out our trio.

i'm proud to have "mom" at the top of the list of titles on my resume, but i'm also still a hard-working professional. how does a working mom juggle work and family? ride along with me and see if i can figure it out!

how to relax on a weekend

mmm, baby for breakfast!
every week, like almost every human being i know, i look forward to the weekend. and every week, i find myself so utterly overwhelmed with weekend - mostly awesome weekend stuff! - that i start the next work week less rested than i was on friday.

each activity that our family does is wonderful. but the sum total wears me out.

this weekend started easy - delicious breakfast cooked by my husband, then off to tailgate at the lsu game. my husband had scored some awesome tickets, my cousin and her husband were in town from new york, lots of family was going to be around, it was going to be AWESOME!
close enough to the bench to see that those players
are BABIES. infants, i tell you.
and awesome it was. but it was also something close to 10 miles of walking, up until nearly 3 a.m. (which even with daylight savings is still 2 a.m. ...) and then up to teach sunday school and do laundry and etc. etc. etc..

so. how do you do it? how do you make sure a fun weekend is still also a RELAXING weekend? how do you get to monday morning feeling like you've had a break?

comment below. because i have no clue.

what i DO have, fortunately, is a little bug who has been exceptionally snuggly lately. and although this was a crazy weekend, we still found time for two things:

1: a john burrito on the couch
2: some extra snuggly snuggle time
(complete with bedhead for both of us)
