It’s not easy being a mom. Way to state the obvious, right? But it’s true. Sometimes I get a little overwhelmed with all that I have on my plate. And by sometimes, I mean all the time. It’s not easy taking care of a three year old, going to school, and of course keeping up with this blog. I feel like I sound like a broken record here, but I’m sure I have some mama’s reading this that are nodding their heads in agreement and understanding.
We spend so much time focusing on the minis in our life that sometimes we forget about ourselves. I don’t know about you, but whenever I go to a store my cart just automatically veers towards the kids aisles and I’m always sucked into all the cute little girls clothes and princess toys for Alea. More often than not, I’m taking what I call “mommy-guilt” toys to the check-out to “make-up” for the studying I need to get done and to keep Alea busy while I do so.
I’m not saying I don’t ever buy myself anything, but it’s usually all about Alea! Sometimes it would be fun to just go shopping for the day and treat only myself. You know?

How’s that for a shopping trip? Nothing big or outrageously expensive, but that’s just it. It’s the little things in life. It’s all about buying a fun new nail polish color or a flashy new pillow for the couch to add a little sass and a little bit of fun to treat myself. And I probably wouldn’t be able to leave any store or “me day” without a Diet Pepsi. I just don’t even think that’s possible! Gotta fuel that shopping & that sass! ::winks::
