The Luscious List

1) If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen this Mother's Day photo. I captioned it with a quote from one of my favorite books, "Wherever You Are, My Love Will Find You" by Nancy Tillman.
First, I love this picture. The girls look so pretty: Ellie in her sundress and Summer in her ruffled one-piece and floppy hat! This photo was taken before we found out brunch at Cake would be close to a 2 hour wait. And, we had gotten there just 15 minutes after they opened. We were all smiles here, but not for much longer as we were all starving. Even the Starbucks nearby had a line out the door so I couldn't even get a cup of coffee. We ended up going home, I went for a 5-mile run, then we had a delicious dinner at my parent's. My days are so busy that what I really wanted on Mother's Day was just to relax in the afternoon. I was thinking of starting a book and laying out in our backyard under the warm sun. Wishful thinking, ha! I hope everyone else had a wonderful Mother's Day!!

2) I am still dreaming of an afternoon of relaxation or a pedicure sometime in the near future as my 3 year old has had some major temper tantrums lately. I really just ignore it, but usually I do a reverse tactic and tickle her or give her a hug. Or, just let her know I am there for a hug when she is ready. It usually works, but it is still exhausting especially when I have another child in my arms. I recently read this article and it has some helpful points.

3) Above I am wearing a new tank by Victoria's Secret and I love it. It's so comfortable, lightweight, and I love the color. I want these other items by VS:
Flare-Back Tank
I wanted the sweatshirt in the mint color shown, but it's sold out in a small. I also like the pink and yellow. I am always looking for new white tanks and I like the lace and flare. My favorite sandals are my Steve Madden ones I'm wearing above. Even though they are a buckle I can still slide my feet in and out. And they are so lightweight. That's what I like about the ones above. I like the leopard print!

4) Starting this past Sunday, May 11th, I am on a 7-week eat clean/workout schedule. Who is with me?! There are 7 weeks till the beginning of July. I plan to post weekly my workout schedule. I started P90x on Monday morning. I woke up at 5:15 and did an hour of legs/back. I literally had trouble walking on Tuesday and I have done bootcamp before, but this was more intense. I did not have a pull-up bar so I substituted push-ups. The seated wall squats are brutal. I will talk more about my eating/fitness plan in another post.
 5) Our garden is looking so pretty and colorful these days!
