Not Just A Mom Loving Lately

 Hey loves. Happy Monday and Happy Not Just A Mom week. How was your weekend? Brian and I went out to dinner for his birthday and enjoyed a quiet night without any kids thank you to my mom, sister, and niece. We also visited my dad in the nursing home, (he should be coming home today), got some Christmas shopping done, and celebrated his birthday with his family. 

It's time for the last Not Just a Mom Link up of 2022. It has been a great year with so many of you joining in our monthly link up. If you are new- every month, the second Monday, I link up with these incredible ladies (DaraJenJoannaLauren, and Sarah )  and we share different aspects of our life. We are more than just moms. We will be back in 2023 for another year of fun link ups. Be sure to grab the new graphics for next year.

This month we are sharing Loving Lately

- Christmas Movies- I am the happy ending, colorful lights, love story for Hallmark movies. And now GAC family too. Let's also not forget the new Netflix movie with Lindsay Lohan

- Mickey Mouse Wreath Brian surprised me with this new decorative light up wreath from Lowe's. Just adds some more Disney Magic to our house.

- Elf I currently have a love hate relationship with him as I have been lazy. Ella also said he has been boring this year. Time to step it up a notch. What I am loving is Anna and Austin waking up with excitement looking for him every morning. 

- Christmas lights I could sit all day and just relax by the Christmas lights and read.

- Candles I received this Pumpkin Cream Cookie candle as a hostess gift for hosting Thanksgiving. It seems so good. My only negative it burns down very quickly. 

- Audiobooks I have been listening to audiobooks while cleaning, folding laundry, etc. 

- New workout program
working on getting into a routine of putting myself first. I notice a difference in the amount of energy and my mood on the days I take the time to press play on a workout for 30-45 minutes.

  1. So many great things to be loving lately! That wreath is super cute. I used to have a love/hate relationship with the elf too and I think I mostly loved it except for the nights I woke up suddenly like from a nightmare and would shout "I forgot to move the elf!" LOL

  2. I love that Disney wreath!! So cute! I need to get back into reading-- I have just been way too busy the past 2-3 months. Hopefully over the break! Lauren, not Anonymous

  3. I love your new wreath! So cute. I agree-- I love reading by Christmas lights with a candle lit as well.


Thanks for leaving some comment love.
