Happy Monday! Today, Andrea and I are chit chatting about all things RED, WHITE, and BLUE!
Every month we meet up here on the last Monday of the month and chit chat about things. Here's a list of the upcoming topics...
I used to be all about some holiday decorating but to be honest this new house (even though I've lived here a year-I'm still calling it new! ha!) has me busy focused on just everyday decorating. And the updating. Oh my! My list overwhelms Tab. :)
Anyway, to change it up a bit today I'm sharing some RED, WHITE, and BLUE moments...
Red makes me think of being embarrassed because in only about 1.2 seconds my skin can go from flesh-toned to a bright shade of red. I will NEVER forget this moment in sixth grade. The entire class was sitting in their desks. The teacher had just turned on a movie-something "science" related, I'm sure-you know to make it "school-approved".
It looked JUST like this. :)
I asked to go to the bathroom and had to walk in front of all the desks and tv to get to the door. I somehow tripped on the television cord and remember FLYING up through the air, landing on my knees, hopping up, and running to the restroom. Because of the tv, I knew EVERYONE had just saw it happen. I'll never forget that moment.
I kind of struggled with this one, because white-what real life story can go with that?? But I'm sharing a SCARY story. White as a ghost...get it? :)
In 2012, we took a family beach trip (with Tab's family) to Destin, Florida. We stayed in a condo right on the beach. Our condo was AMAZING. Super nice! It was very long...the door to the condo had nice long hallway before getting to the living room/kitchen area where everyone hung out. And it had a door handle that you just needed to pull down and the door would pop right open. I also had two very small children who thought elevators were super cool.
Me and my people-Nixon 2, Ebby Lee-3
We were in the condo getting ready for dinner and I remember asking where the kids were. They'd been playing hide-and-seek so we thought they were hiding. After looking in a super calm manner, we all started getting panicked. They were NOT in the condo. Then we remembered the ELEVATORS! The condo building was small-only five floors, but the bottom floor opened to the parking garage! All the adults were running, screaming, and losing our minds to find the kids! I remember my pregnant self running down the stairs crying as we searched. Finally-after what seemed like FOREVER but was probably more like two minutes, I heard my brother-in-law yell up that he found them get off one of the elevators. Hallelujah!! I'm not sure I've ever been more scared in my life.
Technically, I should probably share a sad story, but I can't end on a negative note. When I think blue, I also think relaxing and calm. What's better than a day at the spa or let's be real-even an hour at the spa? Right?
On our vacation last week, I scheduled a facial at the resort spa. There's not much better than a facial in my opinion.
AHHH!!! Can't you just hear the fountain sounds by looking at the picture?
I remember my first facial ever. The aesthetician told me that she'd love for me to come in once a month for a facial. Once a month? Who has that kind of time?
This made me laugh!!! So true, right?
The spa is amazing, but as a mom my favorite (and more realistic) way to relax is a bath at the end of the day. When the kids are in bed, I grab a book and take a bath. Works every time.
What's your favorite way to relax? Tonight, will be a little Bachelorette with some snoring kids in the bedrooms. #ihope
And if you have a story about losing your kids, please share! It'll make me feel WAY better about myself.
I hope you guys enjoyed my version of our Red, White, and Blue chat. Thanks for stopping by! XOXO
