Monday Motivation

by - October 25, 2021

Happy Monday, friends! We had a good weekend. My mom and I took Alexis to what I believe is our area's best pumpkin patch/farm. It was ridiculously hot so we didn't do everything there was to do, but we had fun in the sunflowers. Then we decided to see The Addams Family 2, which was a lot of fun.

This week is Red Ribbon Week at school, which means every day is a dress-up day. I normally dread these weeks because I always feel like I don't have enough time to prepare, but thankfully all of the themes this year are fairly simple and won't require much. Whose idea was it to schedule a dress-up week the week before Halloween anyway?

Speaking of Halloween, we'll be trick-or-treating on Saturday. Alexis requested that we all dress up like Scooby Doo characters, with her claiming Scooby of course. I found a really cute costume for her and there are a surprising number of Daphne-esque dresses out there so my costume wasn't difficult to put together at all, and we didn't even have to buy anything for Chris to dress like Shaggy (although we did briefly consider getting him a Shaggy wig, lol!).

Other than that, I've got yoga later today and a doctor's appointment later this week. Chris is on vacation for the next 16 days, so that's kind of exciting. The November issue is all but done (just waiting on a few last-minute things to come in today), and I'll be shifting gears to December and January.

I can't believe it's time to start thinking about the holidays already. My first gift guide will be published this week, and it's one I haven't done before so I'm excited to share it with you all. My annual Working Mom's Gift Guide will go live next week, and then I'll have my last-minute gift guide after Thanksgiving. In addition to my other holiday content, I've got some birthday stuff planned, as well.

That's about it for me. I hope you all have a wonderful week, and if you're celebrating, a Happy Halloween!
