confessions on my mind

It seems like it's been forever since I've shared some confessions and I have a few things on my mind, so here we go.

I confess . . .

- Oliver is officially weaned and I love it! Maybe I kind of sort of miss nursing him before bed - but not really. It's nice be done. Especially considering the boy has 16 teeth.

- even though Oliver is no longer nursing, I feel like I'm cheating if I eat something with dairy in it. Cheating on what, I'm not sure, but after being dairy free for about 10 months I'm reluctant to start eating dairy again.

- life without dairy isn't all that bad and as much as I loved pizza before, it doesn't have the same appeal to me anymore. I'm sure that won't last long.

- I've wanted to get a little tattoo on my foot for about a decade. But I don't have one. And I'll probably never get one. But I really want one.

- as much as I hate wearing shorts, they are all I've worn this summer. All the better for chasing littles around in I suppose.

- I feel like I'm supposed to do something with my eyebrows, but I never know what to do with them. How do you use eyebrow makeup? Is that a thing? I feel like I should know, but I don't.

- Zebra cakes are delicious.

- while washing dishes isn't my favorite chore, I'd rather wash them than put them away.

- the afternoons lately have been filled with sewing projects and I'm having sew much fun with it [see what I did there?  ;].

- I finally got blackout curtains the other day for the boys' rooms. I'm just praying that they work and help the boys sleep past the deadly hour of 5:30. Please.

- this week I've been babysitting a 6 month old. Eeesh. I'm glad it's only for one week and that tomorrow is Friday.

- the other night I started looked at some furniture for our future house [even though we're not moving for basically a year].

Linking up here.

I have a tattoo on my foot. It was NOT pleasant to have done. I hope the blackout curtains work for you - they were a lifesaver for us when we finally got them for Mila!

Girl, blackout curtains are a complete GAME CHANGER. We put them in Jacob's room a couple of years ago and it helped him fall asleep faster at night (since it's usually light when we put him to bed) and he started sleeping later in the morning. Definitely do it! You won't regret it!

Way to go on weaning. It was hard for me too, but I felt better after. I don't know how you went without pizza. I love it way too much. I am sure I could if I had to, but it would be tough. You should get a tattoo on your foot. Just make sure it is something you can live with forever. I have one on the inside of my ankle. I use an eyebrow pencil to fill in my eyebrows a bit. I am not heavy handed, but watched a few tutorials on it. Thanks for linking up!!!

I have a foot tattoo and it's my favorite :)

I just recently started using product on my eyebrows since they're basically non existent! It's almost like an eye shadow that I use to darken them and fill them in just a little bit
