Trying . . . .

Image Map

To do my hair more often.  Probably poor timing with summer because it gets so hot and I just wear it in a messy bun, but I do realize I feel much better about myself when I spent even ten minutes curling my hair.  I need to experiment with other cute ways to wear my hair because a greasy messy bun is all I've got most days.  

Hard to believe Addi is almost done with preschool.  She only has two days left!  I can't believe the year is over and next year she'll be going three days a week.  I greatly look forward to not driving her and dropping her off for the next few months!

To work up the courage to call the dentist. I am sure I have a few cavities and one is on my wisdom tooth, which needs to be pulled.  I feel anxious just thinking about it, but need to get it done.  

New facial products.  My skin care routine is slim to none.  I am always happy to try to new products, so when Timeless offered to send some to me I happily accepted!  They sent me two different anti wrinkle serums.  You can use them on their own or combined with a moisturizer.  I usually put it on right after I put on moisturizer.  (Currently Wal-Mart generic brand - see? not much of fancy routine over here.).  It makes your face feel so soft and stays that way.  My skin can get super dry in the Winter and then again in the Summer after being outside in the sun.  I definitely notice days when I forget to use it, that my face doesn't feel nearly as soft.  The bottle is small, but you only use a few drops and it has last me many months and there is still a ton left.  Timeless has a ton of other all natural skin care products that seem much more afforadble then many products I've seen.  (I need this dark circle eye cream - because Isaac keeps waking up at 5:00 and adding to my already huge eye bags!)

To have a better attitude about early wake ups.  Speaking of being up at 5 in the morning, I am having a hard time not letting that set the tone for my day and keep starting it out crabby.  I used to love getting up early but that was when I could work out or read my Bible and drink my coffee alone. Any tips for making a super early morning with an infant more manageable?

To drink more water.  I don't know why this is so hard for me.  But I drink so little water and know that's so terrible for your body.  Maybe I need a really cute new water bottle?? How do you make sure you're drinking enough water?

New water bottles help and usually do the trick for awhile.
Maybe throwing some fruit in your water? I like lime and cut-up strawberries. Cucumbers are good too.

Going to the dentist is the worst! I agree with Kristin above, putting fruit in your water can really make it more fun to drink! I have a 25 ounce water bottle bottle, and I try to drink one before lunch, one between lunch and when I leave work, and one between leaving work and going to bed. If I go for a walk, I drink another 25 ounces while I'm walking. I've gotten so used to it that now if I am traveling or in a day of meetings or something and don't get that much water, I feel so thirsty and lethargic!

I can relate to most of your trials!!! I need to do my hair more often too... the mom bun is my go to!! Haha! I think I sometimes forget how long my hair actually is!! I do need a hair cut!!
I just started using Arbonne RE9 skin care line after using nothing my whole life and then I noticed wrinkles.... I'm loving the new line!!!
I'm struggling with water intake still... 2 contigo bottles is easy, but I want to drinking 3-4!!
As for the dentist... I finally got my teeth done and I feel soo relieved and I actually fear the dentist... 10 cavities later and my mouth is like new! That's what I get for not going for 10 years!! Won't be making that mistake again!!

I recommend going to the dentist for a cleaning every 4 months. It makes it easier to get used to because it becomes just part of your routine, so your anticipatory anxiety goes down.

Oh man I do nothing for my face. :( I need to step up my game!! ha LOVE those pants! And your hair looks so pretty!! I always put lemon, lime or orange in my water. Can't do plain. Sometimes I put a tea bag in, like a non-caf herbal one.
