If We Were Having Coffee (Or Protein Shakes) Together In May

One of my favorite posts to write each month is the “If we were having coffee” post. There really is nothing better then having coffee with a friend. It happens so rarely these days that I often look to my blogging friends for a good discussion.

I’m taking a “me” day from work to wind down a little bit. Our last few months have been busy and Baby B has been fighting allergies (and the crib) on and off for awhile. Last week I told my (wonderful) husband that I was having a midlife crisis. With a mix of lack of sleep, crazy schedules and allergies that won’t quit he suggested I take a day to myself. Friday seemed like a good day to relax.

Then again, my idea of relaxing is kicking off my day with a 6 mile run… which felt AMAZING. Unfortunately it is pouring rain outside so I was still stuck on the treadmill. 6 miles is 6 miles so I will take it. While you drink your coffee today, I’m going to drink my post run protein shake.

If We Were Having Protein Shakes

If we were having coffee (or protein shakes) together I would tell you…

I have been loving the warmer weather we finally have in the Midwest. This week has felt wonderful to go up to 88 degrees multiple days in a row. We’ve been enjoying trips to the park, evenings playing outside and airing out the house. Unfortunately, it very quickly dropped back off today. Come back fast!

On the flip side, the warmer weather has meant allergy season is officially in full swing. Baby B and I have been hit the worst. Poor little guy just can’t catch a break this season.

Last week we finally made the transition back to the crib. Yes, Baby B is almost 9 months old. We actually started in the crib and around 3 weeks old he gave that up. After 5 weeks of sleeping in a chair with him, an INCREDIBLE friend let us borrow her Rock n Play. Ever since then Baby B has fought the idea of the crib. There was much celebrating last weekend when he finally slept 6 straight hours in a crib!

One of my co-workers has been slowly introducing me to the idea of Essential Oils. A few weeks ago she made a roller for Baby B to help with his allergies and I am officially hooked. My starter kit from Young Living came in the mail yesterday and I have been trying out all different combinations. So far purification is my favorite but we’ve been diffusing a mix of peppermint, tangerine and lemon today for a boost around the house.

While my favorite TV shows are starting to wind down for the season I’m glad I’ll have a chance to really catch up. I’ve been terrible watching TV this year and there are so many episodes I have left to catch up on. The spoilers are out there and I’ve just accepted them!
