Sometimes Momma needs a time out!

Ok, your probably thinking I got in trouble and maybe Greg sent me to a "time out".  Ha! Actually, I sent myself on a time out, meaning I needed a "break".  After church yesterday I told Greg I just wanted to get out and have some "momma time"...alone! Of course there is no place I'd rather be than with my hubby, baby and dog, but I was having one of those moments I just needed a little space.  So I got myself together and headed to the mall....I was in  sample heaven in Sephora, those gals are so nice, I swear they probably recognize me as the "Vera Wang" lady because I'm always coming in for samples of that perfume ever since I ran out of my own bottle.  They also hooked me up with a sample of colonge for Greg, and some Bare Essentuals samples too, needless to say I left the store one happy lady.  As I kept strolling through the mall I noticed a lonely sales lady in the "Merle Norman" make-up store, so being the chipper gal I am I headed in sorta pretending I was looking for new lipstick so she could feel like she had something to do.  Anyhow, we struck up a great conversation and I ended up hanging out in there for quite a while, and the bonus is I found my new favorite lip gloss called "Wineberry", and guess what??  You go it....more samples!  She just kept handing more to me, so I gladly accepted, spent a few more minutes chatting with her and then I was on my merry way. Before I left, I hit all my fave stores, Ann Taylor Loft , Forever 21, Yankee candle and the list goes on.  Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that before I got to the mall, I cruised by my favorite gourmet grocery store called AJ's Fine foods and got myself some yummy coffee complete with vanilla creamer, and since I have the "special mug" I got my big yummy coffee for a whole whopping 50 cents and all in all that what my whole outing cost me!  The moral of the story is every momma needs a " time out" now and then to get out and recharge her batteries, have a little time to herself to get new perspective on things.  So if your looking for a cheap way to have fun, grab your re-fillable mug for some java from your favorite coffee spot and get your sample shopping on sisters!  Happy Day!

What a difference a hot bath and a cappacino makes!

Kiely decided that she'd like to embrace the world  at 6 am this morning instead of her usual 7 or 7:30am wake up time, so my rad husband went in and got her and brought her downstairs and got her settled in while I did my morning thing and woke up.  Lucky for me an early wake up time means Kiely going down for an early nap.  Anyhow, before Greggy left for work he made me a delicious cappacino, complete with the perfect foam on top, I nursed that puppy to the very last drop and before I knew it Kiely was ready for her nap.  Shortly following I took a luxurious bath complete with my Bath and Body Works Black Raspberry Vanilla shower gel and body cream to follow.  Wow, what a difference a hot bath and a cappacino makes, I feel ready for the day ahead!  Lucky for me I get to go out to lunch with my wonderful gal pal Erin and we get to catch up on life together today.  Trust me, my day is not normally filled with hot baths and lunch dates, but today you can bet I'll take what I can get.  Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Ho Ho Ho, Its off to the Marathon Expo we go!

Well today is the day I pick up my race number for this Sunday's Half Marthon. I am getting super excited, even a little nervous for Sunday's event.  Its not as if I am an elite runner or anything, as a matter of fact I am pretty average if not a little slow, but you know what, how many people can say they have run a marathon?  I can, and now I am about to run a half marathon and I am pretty proud of myself.  Considering I have a barely 10 month old baby, I am happy at the accomplishment that is about to be had on Sunday.  So off we go to the Expo, we are trying to get there really early to avoid the crowd, this will be Kiely's first big interaction with the world of runners out there, and maybe in some little way she will be inspired and she'll be become Momma's little running partner when she grows up.  Happy Trails everybody!

I'm finally a Blogger!

This has been a long time coming.  I have wanted to blog for forever now and I have finally set things up.  My main purpose for this is  to keep friends and family in the loop of what's going on in the Mundy house, but also I wanted to use it as a medium to sort of "journal" my thoughts on all sorts of things, basicly for whatever is on my mind or my heart at the time.  Trust me my wheels are always turning so the chances are that if you follow my blog you will see that I am always making entries.  So....Welcome to my blog!  Here you will see my thoughts on "My life as a Wife an Momma".
