Right when the temperature dropped letting us know summer was really gone, baby got a cold and then I caught it too.  This thing was/is nasty.  I’m still battling it but the upside is it gave me something to draw/paint.  It first hit me on Wednesday amd Saturday I was completely out.  I quarantined myself to our room so I could pass out and nap to recover. Just me, the humidifier, iPad + Netflix, some tea (that made my sore throat worse actually) and non-stop TP for my non-stop nose.  Glad to be on the other side of it even though I’m not 100%.

I need to stock up on more anti-bacterial from Bath and Body Works.

Help, I’m being buried by to do lists.

Some are fun and some  are just pure productivity so we don’t get overwhelmed in this little household of ours.  Let’s talk about summer now that it’s over.  One of our dreams came true for a family vacation to Disneyland.  Baby girl was overjoyed and in awe of everything.  So was I, not gonna lie.  It was pretty much two big kids and one toddler on this trip, Mickey ears and all.  Right after the trip I had a birthday, one more cycle around the sun.  I’m self reflecting so much more now and although I’ve almost always used my old self as a gauge for improving, now it is in overdrive.  Anything I can change to make things better (organizing, painting, time management etc) I’m making the effort to make that change.

I am completely obsessed with YouTube and my latest obsession is Lipstick With Some Sunshine.  She reminds me so much of my cousin Tiffany, my first beauty guru.  She showed me my first foundation which I rushed to get a Prescriptives Tint.  Remember them?  Are they even still in business?  Need to look that up.  Now LWSS is the business, I love her aesthetic, style and just full on makeup curation.  Love.

firemen

So last Friday I was dropping off baby girl at my parents’ and everything was going great.  I decided to take a different street than I usually do when I leave my parents’.  The street with a Starbuck’s drive thru of course.  All of a sudden instead of feeling like I was driving on pavement, I felt like I was driving on a rocky dirt road.  I was on a two lane street so I pulled over to the right.  I jumped out real quick to see what happened and just as I thought, a flat tire.  I was trying to text my husband because I honestly didn’t know who I should call first.  Before I could send my text I saw flashing lights in the back and instead of the police, it was a fire truck.

The next thing I knew I was being asked if I had a donut in the back, I said yes and one of the firemen said, “Since you have a spare tire on you we can change it for you!”.  I was in shock and still am.  Do firemen really do this?  I guess they do because I was able to sit in my air conditioned car while five firemen changed my tire in less than 10 minutes.  I was beaming from ear to ear when I said, “Thank you!!” and headed to Starbucks after all.

So.  Amazing.  Has anything out of the ordinary like that happened to you?

Do share, such a blessing!

P.S. I have a scanner now and it is the bomb.com.
