Quick Update

Wow, can't believe it's been 5 days already since I've posted. I keep meaning to sit down, write something thoughtful, but here we are!

We had a great weekend. I took the girls to Whole Foods for the first time, and you would have thought it was a candy store by how excited they were...by the produce! Unfortunately, I went way over budget because, of course, I wanted to say yes to everything they wanted. I said no a few times, but not nearly enough. Lesson learned. Ouch.

On Saturday, we went to Dermalogica for a mom blogger event. The girls had their very first facials! I will post more about it at a later date.

That night, I went to a Help a Mother Out event, hosted by the fabulous House of Prince. Word is, over 3,000 diapers were donated! Given that there are no government programs to help the homeless buy diapers, we feel pretty good about that.

Sylvia went to see Chicago on Sunday night with the Club and had a great time.

I'm adding another title. Next year, I'll be the Secretary for the Booster Club as well as the PTA for Riley's school. Now maybe I can find out just what it is a Booster Club does!

Work is crazy busy, learning SO much, and still loving it.

On the bad news front: my car's engine light came on to warn me that a bill around $400 will be coming soon. LOVELY.

But to not end on that note, had lunch with the fabulous Jessica Gottlieb yesterday. Love her.

you are very busy woman and glad that you are helping out at your kids school. Will be doing more of that next year. Totally understand the food shopping budget.

I love whole foods. It does feel like a candy store.

Glad you had a good weekend and hope the car is nice to you!

Sounds like a busy week! Hope the car isn't too bad off...

Diapers are expensive, good for you guys for helping out!

totally agree on how time sometimes flies by! I went 7 days without a post a couple of weeks ago and then was kind of intimidated by it all!! And...have you tried the butter cookies at Whole Foods? In the tiny box, an assortment for $9.99 (crazy) but SO YUMMY? I love them and cannot say no to...me!!
