What We’ve Been Up To …

October 4, 2012 | By More

If you haven’t noticed I took a little more time off again this week from the blogging world. I’m not going to lie I still struggle trying to find a balance with my life and everything that needs to get done. But I would also be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy the time I’ve spent being unplugged.

Here’s what we’ve been up to this last week …

Hanging with Tutu! Nate’s mom came into town this past weekend and we were beyond excited. We don’t get to see her that often since she lives all the way over in Hawaii. She got in Thursday evening and we grabbed something to eat at PF Changs. Friday, we showed her around the town and headed out on the boat. Saturday we had a little get together here at the house with some friends. She made chili and these awesome pumpkin cookies. Just ask Caden; he loved sitting on the counter helping Tutu ice cookies.

 

We loved having her here and we miss her so much already!

Furniture Shopping.

Hanging with friends. Two of our really good friends; Mark and Deena just moved here and will be staying here for an entire month maybe even 2! This is like a vacation for most people but for them it’s their lifestyle. They travel all over the world and have been traveling for 5+ years! Deena and I were college roommates at OSU and I’m pumped to have a drinking buddy again :)

Teething. We’ve had a couple sleepless nights with this last molar coming through.

 

Unplugging and Playing. I’ve really made a point to not care sooo much about the online world but rather focus on our family and to be honest I’ve really enjoyed it. Hanging out with the family after dinner and watching mindless TV with my hubby is much better then burying my head in my computer.

Which is another reason I need to find “my” balance. It’s going to take time for me to find this new balance I’m looking for but when I do I know I’m going to feel 1000 times better.

 

Do you have your balance all figured out or do you (like me) struggle with this?

  1. Your new house looks beautiful! I suck at balance. I’m a total workaholic most of the time. Owning a business with my husband can also be tricky because although we see each other a lot, we are not good at making time for US as a couple.
