Both of the girls are sleeping at the same time! So here’s a blog post!

You know I’m a sucker for the list o’ bullet points. Especially on Thursdays when I can link up with Gretch & Kristen.

Currently in October+ With the cooler weather comes the rain in the PNW, and I have upped my rain gear game since last year! This year the girls will be ready to be outdoors every single day, rain or shine with these oh-so-fashionable rainsuits.

+ I am happy that it’s getting darker a bit earlier, because it forces us to be inside (and cooking) earlier, which also means earlier bedtimes for the girls – and for us! Everyone wins.

+ These jeans are my new favorite ever. EVER. They’re just as comfortable as my yoga pants, they fit perfectly, and they’re on sale at Nordstrom right now!

+ I just started reading this book and am a fan so far. (Thanks for the recommendation, Kait!)

+ This week was the first week of the MOPS group that I’m a member of, and since I’m on the steering committee of our group, it was pretty hectic leading up to the first meeting. I am glad it’s over with (and went well!) and I’m expecting my wine consumption to decrease.

+ And I’m also excited to meet the ladies I’ve been placed at a table with at MOPS! It’s going to be a great year with (hopefully) some new friendships.

+ This yogurt is everything. EVERYTHING. I wish I could eat it 18 times a day and not gain a pound. I also wish it was free.

+ We move to our new house in a week from yesterday. So… in six days. I don’t know whether to be happy or sad or whether I should be stressed or not worried at all. I might be in denial.

+ This is my favorite nail color and I keep picking it out every time I go in for a manicure (so like, three times a year). I probably should buy a bottle of my very own.

+ I’m going to make this recipe once per week all fall and winter. It is so easy (yay crockpot!) and there’s no chopping required!

+ Last night Tim and I went out for our second date night (at RockCreek – AMAZING seafood in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle) since the birth of Isabelle (5 months ago!) and it was the first time we left both girls with our usual babysitter. She said it went really well and I am so glad because I was nervous leaving her with both kids. I wasn’t worried about the girls, I was worried about her! I didn’t want her to be overwhelmed and never come back. Luckily, I think she will continue to babysit for us so date nights will one again be a thing. An every-other-week thing, hopefully.

+ Speaking of which, I use UrbanSitter to find babysitters from time to time (and always recommend this service to friends) and they’re offering a $50 coupon for new customers. Get on it!

I just heard  a cry from upstairs… I think they can tell when I’m just starting to get into my relaxation groove. Off I go.

  1. I’m glad you guys go another date night in! Hope they become regular for you!

    Those rain suits are intense! Haha! I’m loving that nail color, too. I just bought a super deep red color that I love!

    yes, I am SO happy you tried leaving both girls with the babysitter AND that it went well! I told you it’d be fine! high school babysitters are weirdly good at their jobs, I think it’s youth. wasted on the young. also, how dare you show me jeans right now? I kid you not I barely fit in my leggings right now…

  3. I have two pairs of Paige jeans from the Rack and they really are like wearing yoga pants! Looove them! Oh my gosh…we used to live right by Pike Place and the Ellenos Marionberry (I think) Pie yogurt…so good I could cry.

  4. The darker earlier thing and cooler weather thing is something I’m dreading. It’s hard for me to take Emmy out when it’s cold and Bensen LOVES to be outside, so when I’m home with them during the day, it will be a challenge. We usually go out and play when Joe gets home, but the earlier it gets dark, the more that’s not possible 🙁
    Also, I’m with you on the babysitter thing. For now, when we go on our babies free date night, we’re having our parents or Joe’s sister come over and watch the kiddos but I keep asking myself at what point do I feel comfortable having my niece handle both kids?!?

  5. I just pinned that slow cooker recipe…that sounds so delicious!

  6. Thanks for the tip on the UrbanSitter! I will be needing that once Grandma and Grandpa decide they are over babes…. Also – MOPS? I am intrigued. Looking it up now!

  7. no chopping required? checking that recipe out for sure. the easier the better this time of year, and you can’t go wrong with the crockpot. yay for date nights and babysitters! adding that book to my list 🙂
