Fri-yay before Mother's Day!

Oh man...let me tell you about this morning. I could not get out of bed to get up and do my workout. So I didn't. Which would be fine if I slept well for the hour and a half extra I got in bed, but I didn't. I woke up right around when Jason got home from work and he's all "geeeeeez you look tired". And he's a smart dude, so he wouldn't just say because he's daft and doesn't realize that those words can be taken really badly if I wanted to...I really looked awful. Huge, puffy bags under my eyes and I have a constant frog in my throat that I just can't clear out. 

Then I woke up my kids and they were both terrorists this morning. Whining and complaining and slamming their cell phone on the counter...

Needless to say, I'm not feeling so hot today! Luckily I get to leave work early to go to a Mother's Day tea at Julianna's daycare (I will try to take pictures and not be the worst blogger ever, I promise!). On the flip side, I'm going into work tomorrow for a half day to get caught up on stuff. Womp womp. 

Since I'm feeling like crapola, I don't have a ton to talk about but thought I would do a quick Fr-yay with some of the things that are making me say YAYYYYYYYYY today. 

Other than the fact that it's Friday...because that always makes me say yayyy!

Jason ordered a Mother's Day cake from Julianna's daycare and then Jules decorated it. Heavy on the sprinkles...just the way I like it :-) Her decorating skills look just like mine! The food always tastes amazing, but it looks just kind of meh. 

I guess this is the opposite of a yayyy...Jules has been excessively cranky and whiny and just not feeling it every day when I pick her up at school. She actually went to bed at 6:30 last night and slept all night until I went in to get her at 7:45.

I hate having a sick child and feeling helpless to do anything :-(

I finally jumped on the bandwagon and ended up binge watching Big Little Lies in a week. So. Effing. Good. I haven't read the book, but now I want to read the book AND I really hope they put out another season because I need MORE!! So what I'm saying here is, watch this dang show because it's amazing.

Guys...this was our Sunday dinner and it was probably my favorite meal we've had recently. All of it was good, but that chicken...holy crap. I will be making it again soon! The recipe for the gnocchi is here and the chicken is here

Just another series of amazing pre-workout pictures, courtesy of me. This was before my run on Thursday and I just didn't wanna. Obviously.

Finally, I wanted to make some music recommendations since several people have told me they like those. Here are the songs I'm really feeling right now. 

  • Moving to New York by The Wombats
  • Every Time I'm Ready to Hug by Ra Ra Riot (this is my favorite favorite favorite right now)
  • Silvia by Miike Snow

And that's really all I have for today - like I said, my brain is dunzo!

I hope everyone has a great weekend - treat your mom/wife/baby mama like gold and if you are a mama - happy Mother's Day!
