Finn and I are hunkered down and have everything we need for what is now Tropical Storm Florence. They’re saying we could get up to 15 inches of rain over the weekend. The wind was very strong today. I squeezed in one last walk before the storm with Finn and the girls and Finn LOVED looking up and seeing the trees moving so much in the wind. I am praying that downed trees are minimal and that everyone being impacted by this storm stays safe.
ICE CREAM IS EVERYTHING
I went out looking for batteries tonight and came home with ice cream instead. I will be so sad if the power goes out before I can make my way through these pints. I’ve never tried these flavors. I’ve decided that I prefer Haagen-Dazs over Ben & Jerry’s. A lot of the Ben & Jerry’s flavors have a little too much going on for me. I also love Talenti but it’s gelato and if I had to pick, it would be ice cream over gelato every time! 🙂
(Thank goodness for Virginia who brought me some C batteries for my flashlight…all the stores in Charlotte are sold out!)
WELCOME BACK SHAMELESS
I am watching Shameless as I write this post. I was so into it earlier this year but have been on a hiatus from watching it for the last few months. I am pretty happy to have Frank, Fiona and Lip back in my life right now. I’m on season six.
A GOOD DAY
I had a good day today and Finn had a great day. I taught a cardio strength class at the Y and then took myself out on a lunch date. I really enjoyed teaching and I’m starting to feel really ready to get back to it on a more regular basis. (Although I could write a whole post about how healthy it’s been for me to take a big, long break from it.)
After class, Finn and I stopped by a friend’s house. Her kids had these giant beanie boos toys and Finn was OBSESSED. I don’t think he’s ever liked a toy so much. He was going nuts and talking like crazy. It was so cute. She texted me after our get together that she ordered one for him. So sweet. He’s going to love it!
Oh, and while we’re talking babies…give me all of your tips on what to do when baby decides they hate the car seat and screams through car rides. Mamas nerves are like ahhhhh!
One last baby note…I stopped in Gymboree for the first time yesterday and oh my gosh. I got Finn the cutest fall wardrobe, complete with thermals, flannel shirts, joggers, jeans and more. They are having a 50% off all baby clothing sale so check it out. Their fall line is SO CUTE!
AN IMPORTANT REMINDER
Here’s the source and she has a great narrative to go with it.
