It’s summer and I love it. I still have to work everyday, but life is a bit less stressful for everyone in our house. I don’t have to get up at 6 am and rush the kids out the door. Bedtime is more lax, which makes the evenings easier and we can spend time together instead of me just yelling at them to hurry up and take a bath already. They are home all day, but for the most part they spend their days playing with their friends and leave me alone. I also somehow have more time to myself. I’ve read a ton this month already and for once I feel like I’m caught up on everything.
I have so much extra time, I’ve been coloring a lot. One of my coworkers sent me a Creative Quotes coloring book for my birthday and I love it. I’m also loving this Golden Girls coloring page. I printed multiple copies because it never gets old.
You know all those Facebook ads for stupid crap to buy? Of course you know. I saw this ad for these stupid Levoons, measuring spoons with an attached thing to level them off, and I’m pretty sure I need them.
I got my first order from Chatbooks. I normally make photobooks of places we’ve lived, things we’ve done, and one of Instagram pics and while I’d heard of them, I hadn’t ever looked into exactly what they were all about. When they asked if they could send me some, I was like of course! I’m not stupid. Chatbooks make the Instagram books so much easier. They will pull in your pictures from Instagram or Facebook and make books. Each one is 60 pages, includes the captions as well, and is only $8. You can set up a subscription too, so every time there are 60 new photos, they will automatically make a book and mail it to you. Best mom time saver guilt eliminator ever. You can use my code RofaMW123 and get your first book free.
I got my first @chatbooks in the mail and I love them! They make books of your Instagram pics and there’s very little work on your end. Use my code RofaMW123 and get your first book free!! You’ve got no excuse for not saving all these pics now. #chatbooks #ad #photobooks

Yoga pants pretty much rule my wardrobe. I wear them way too much. There was a time, not so many years ago, when I would never wear stuff like this to run errands or whatever. I used to do my hair and put legit clothes on, just for the day to day whatever. Working from home means that most days I don’t leave the house so it doesn’t matter, but I need to get better about it. I may have bought this dress in a couple different patterns.
And my current favorite song. I bought the record last weekend, so when the little one isn’t making me listen to Taylor Swift (I bought her the red record, she already had 1989, but I sometimes question why I did this), it’s always on.
