Busy as a Bee, but it's Spring!

I've missed "talking" to you all on my blog, but I've been super busy planning my upcoming event for FemPowerMovement, the Love Your Life Tour, DC. Did you get a ticket? After it's over, I'll make sure to post pics and a recap here as well as the official blog. But I wanted to stop in and talk a little about what's been on my mind lately.

 1. Hair! I want a new hairstyle for the spring & summer. I'm not sure what to do, but I'm leaning towards something like this.

2. Easter! OMG, where has the time gone. I need to do baskets for the boys. I'd like to make something like this, but I'll probably just buy a pre-made one this year.

3. Spring! It's been here, it's gone away. It came back, it went away again. I'm just ready for consistent seventy degree weather.

4. Vacation! I need one. I need a break from my dayjob. I'm starting to get a headache almost every day.

5. New Clothes! I need new clothes for spring since my old spring clothes I couldn't fit anymore and I gave to Goodwill. On my list some light and airy pants like this

What's been on your mind lately?

This Mom's Indulgence

As a busy working mom of three, it's rare I get time to myself, but when I do my guilty pleasure and personal indulgence is taking in a movie by myself or with a friend.With all of the choices of things to do with my time, why do I choose to spend those two precious hours in a dark room with strangers?

Movies have the power to transport you anywhere and you can immerse yourself in the main character and be anyone you wish. Exotic locales, swoon worthy leading men, action, drama, laughs, it's all there for the price of a movie ticket.

When my husband and I first started dating we went to the movies every single weekend and that tradition continued until the birth of our first child. Nowdays if we catch a movie it's probably some Disney-esque musical with a talking car, princess, or a group of animals looking to make their way back to the zoo they call home. But when one of the 'rents are doing grandparent duty, we always sneak out to take in dinner and a movie.

What's your indulgence?
