It's been a tough week, Mamas. I received my "chemo calendar" and seeing it all there in black and white…wow. It's sobering. It's amazing how many drugs are required just to counteract the side effects of the chemo. I mean…thank goodness, but still. I'm the type of person who tries to tough out a headache, you know? These next few months will be a whole different ball game. Speaking of, I may order this baseball hat-with-hair. In red. Why not?
Also, my chemo has been moved out one week. Raines is NOT excited for kindergarten, so I felt much better waiting to start the chemo-craziness until after he has a week under his belt. So for those of you counting…YES: My chemo starts on Sept 11th. Sigh. Closely followed by friday the thirteenth. (My husband was born on a friday the thirteenth, so I'm taking that as a good sign. Right?)
But let's talk fun stuff. I'm done mooing about chemo.
I'm always thrilled with the big-shot street style photographers (Hi Adam) capture a mom. This pic is so sweet.
Is Selma Blair rocking a fanny pack?? Even worse? I think I like it.
Back in July, Refinery 29 showed 8 really great ways to style boyfriend jeans. At the time, I was too hot to care, but now I'm loving it.
I was totally inspired by That's Not My Age's profile on Linda Rodin. It puts an end to the question, "am I too old for leather pants?" Uh, NO.
This made me laugh out loud. "Sockless man stroll?" Awesome.
College Candy (yup – I read them) published 8 Tips to Banish Belly Bloat. I need to memorize these.
Was totally inspired by this article on how to bring Montessori into your home.
Lastly, have you ever tried doing that Dave Ramsey budgeting technique? Where every Friday you pull out – in cash – what you are allowed to spend for that week? The theory goes that once it's gone, you're done. My friend Dena is doing something similar, and as a consequence has declared Thursdays to be Free Thursdays. Total. Genius. We do Free Thursdays around here now, too.
Happy Long Weekend, Mamas!!
