Tuesday Randomness and a Retreat!

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a lovely Tuesday. We’re having a good day so far, but I can’t deny…I am SO EXCITED for school to start on Monday! It has been really fun having Ellie home with me, but I’m starting to feel like we have done the pool, beach, playdate, reading, craft, lemonade stand, tea party, in and out of the house, snacks ALL DAY LONG thing for long enough. I’m craving more of a schedule and to be honest, I think she is too. Summer always seems to be just the right amount of time. Just long enough for everyone to enjoy, but just short enough for everyone to avoid going completely crazy. Kole seems to be thoroughly enjoying summer. He is always just along for the ride and ready to flash his adorable smile at anyone interested in looking his way. Here we are on his first trip to the beach..

He loved it. Wanted to surf SO bad. I said, “no way buddy! You need to be a lot older. We’ll give it a go next summer.”

I have to say I’m in the best mood today! I put on this pair of skinny jeans that I haven’t been able to wear for about a year now and they fit! Well…kinda. I look like a sausage spilling out over them and I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing them in them in public yet. BUT…I was able to zip them up and THAT is making me really happy.

Another thing making me really happy is the possibility of an upcoming trip. I wanted to let you all know about the Power of Mom’s Retreat next month in Southern California. Have you heard about these retreats? They sound amazing! This one is called “Get Organized” — become the mother you want to be. (I heard the title and was sold) :) It’s part “professional development” in the field of motherhood and part slumber party. The retreat is being held at an amazing resort on the beach in Dana Point on Friday, September 17th – 18th. The last retreat was held in my hometown of sunny St. George, UT, but I couldn’t make it because it was so soon after my surgery. This next retreat is close to my now home of sunny San Diego and it sounds like so much fun! I’m trying to work out details so that I can attend… and by details I mean “honey, can you please take work off on Friday, Sept. 17th and give me some money so that I can go stay in a sweet hotel on the beach with other moms to laugh and learn and generally just have an amazing experience that I’ll never forget while you stay home and watch ‘Max and Ruby’ with the kids???” Then I’ll bat my eyelashes that will be unusually long and flash him my sweetest smile. Just need some time to work out those details…

If you’re interested in attending this retreat you have to act quickly because this is the last week to register.

So. I’m thinking you work out the “details” at your house, I’ll work out the “details” at mine and if all goes as planned I’ll see you there. :)

xoxo, Erin

  1. The sad thing is that my details would entail flying across the country…sniff. This sounds amazing and the title would have had me hooked as well. Please tell us all about when you get back :)

  2. This is just 15 minutes away from my house! I would LOVE to go. BUT, my retreat budget money is already spent on scrapbooking weekends booked for this October and November. No way could I squeeze in a third :(

  3. oh erin!!! i would LOVE to go to that! my husband is back working on dancing with the stars then and the weekends are some of their toughtest days (b/c they air on monday/tuesday)…so…that means he’s not home on the weekends to help with the kids. arggggggh!!!! where’s my nanny when i need her- hahahahaha! have fun at the retreat- i’m so jealous!!! :-)

  4. Retreats are awesome! Hope you have a wonderful time – pretty convinced batting those lashes will work! I agree, it is amazing the time frame of summer is just right. Just when you are yearning for a schedule it seems time to start back up … then just when we were yearning to have more down times it seems to be time for school to be out.

  5. Way to go on getting in those skinny jeans. I have a stack of Sevens and Citizens under my bed just waiting for the day that I am that skinny again. It’s weird because some of my jeans I got right back into and others still don’t fit. Weird. I know how exciting it is to wear that favorite pair though!

    And those boots from Italy? Oh my, I think I better plan a trip asap and get me some. So cute!

    The retreat sounds like fun. Hope you get those “details” squared away. :)

  6. Erin ~ I agree with Kathy… you have to be one of the presenters! This retreat has your name all over it. Sounds like fun! Darren and I spent our wedding night there. It is beautiful and I have great memories. Have fun!

  7. I would love to go! I wonder if I would learn anything with Davis there or if he could even come? We will have to talk about this:)

  8. Well congrats on zipping up those jeans! That is such an accomplishment after pregnancy isn’t it?! Way to go hot momma! And Kole is so cute having fun at the beach!

  9. I would love to go with you! I think I’ve met my conference/mom party weekends…bummer.

    How convenient that it’s so close to you! Have fun! You deserve it with all you’ve had going on this year.

  10. I so want to go the retreat! I have a friend that went to the one in St. George. Its a lot of money so I guess I will keep saving and go sometime in the future.
    But the cool thing is we are starting a learning circle in are ward I am so excited to go to that. Have fun on your trip I am totally jealous you get to go.

  11. The conference sounds like fun! I hope all the details work out for you. I am excited for school to start too. I feel like you, we have done everything, and it is time to get back to a routine.
