Life Lately v6

Ahh, the ol' fallback life lately post. You know, for when you have this inexplicable need to document your entire life for the internet to see, but you're too busy with real life to find the time?

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed some changes happening. I'm mentally drafting a blog post on the journey that led me to my new role as a (once again) full-time working and commuting Mama Bear. However, the last few weeks have been literally nonstop and I'm just completely depleted of the mental energy that said post requires. So, in the meantime, you get this: 

What's been happening in my life lately...

ON THE NEW JOB...I officially had my last day of training today which feels great, albeit mildly terrifying. Thankfully the woman who I'm eventually replacing is at the office full-time and then part-time beginning in August. She's fantastic and such a great lady. I feel lucky that I get to follow in her footsteps. My other co-workers seem like genuinely kind, generous and warm people too and I couldn't be more thankful for that.

ON THE FARMERS' MARKET...Summer Farmers' Market season is back in full swing as of the first weekend in June! I'm co-managing for my second year and though it's sooo much work, I love it dearly. All our vendors are fantastic and I just love being involved in our community in this way. 

ON WEDDING SEASON...We attended the wedding of one of Chuck's high school buddies in May and then one of my college besties got married a few weeks ago. I love love and I love weddings. You can always count on me to be the first person on the dance floor, and the last one off of it. We had a little bit of a wedding dry spell the last few years, but our friends are getting hitched left and right this year and it's so much fun!

ON RUNNING...I'm still just chugging away. Not much has happened since my last running update and I still haven't registered for a race yet, because 1. My schedule is insane and I have no free weekends and 2. I still don't feel like I'm 100% ready. Maybe like, 85-90% there. I did, however, make the single best running discovery- Nike Tempo shorts. I always thought it strange how anyone would want those built-in mesh, underwear thingys they have in some running shorts and never wanted them for myself. I needed some more running shorts and there was a super good deal for the Nike shorts on WikiBuy, so I ordered them (not knowing they had the built-in mesh). Let me tell you- that mesh is a game-changer. Total overshare, but now I don't have to worry about my underwear riding up my butt or an overabundance of sweat in my lady area. They are the best!!!

ON THE BOYS...Somehow, Charlie is 3.5 this month and I've officially enrolled him in preschool for the Fall. I won't say I miss the baby stage, because I just adore watching this little boy turn into the man he's meant to be, but dang, time really does fly. Crosby's second birthday is approaching at the beginning of September. I've played with a couple ideas for his birthday party, but it's quite possible that we'll have another small little gathering at our local park like last year because life isn't going to be slowing down any time soon! 

Both boys have done so well with the transition to being with their childcare provider five days a week. Crosby full-on clings to me like a koala bear when we get home in the evening, but honestly, that's nothing new, so I think he's doing okay. Charlie has been wearing undies to daycare for the last few weeks which is a big step for him. Though he isn't officially night-trained, we've got a potty-using, soon-to-be preschooler on our hands!

ON CHUCK...As usual, my sweet husband is as steadfast as ever. Since my return to the working world, he's been put on morning/drop-off duty. I know it hasn't been easy on him, but he's been tackling it like a champ (even if the boys occasionally look like they dressed themselves in the dark. Haha!) He's had to become much more hands-on with the boys, in general, since both my jobs have been keeping me crazy busy. He's as supportive as they come, and I couldn't ask for a better partner in parenthood.

So tell me, what's new with you? What's on your Summer Bucket List?
