Eight on the Eighth

1. I hate shaving my left leg (the knee that had surgery) because my thigh is still slightly numb from the nerve block (side effect) and it gets a tingly feeling when it gets hit or I shave it (the pressure). It's like when your foot falls asleep and when it starts to wake up it tingles and hurts. That's what happens to my leg all the time now. It's getting better but I hate it.

2. Sometimes I still struggle with doing things with my leg. Stand up right now or even while you are sitting, try shaking out your leg. Yeah I can't figure out how to do that with my left leg. There are certain exercises moves that completely baffles me too. I know what I need to do and my right knows but I can't figure out how to get my left to do it. Apparently my muscle memory isn't completely back yet.

3. I have recently completely lost my interest in cooking. I just don't want to do it these days for whatever reason. It still happens because I bought food and we need to eat but we have a lot more takeout days than normal because I am just so completely burnt out from cooking. Anyone else get cooking burn out? How do you combat it?

4. I can't believe it's almost the end of the school year. This year has flown by and I am so proud of my girl and all she has done this year (check out tomorrow's post for more about this). As of right now we don't know what's happening next year and she doesn't have a spot anywhere yet, so yikes there! Also I'm super nervous about having both kids all the time. Connor gets into everything and Addie is desperate for attention. I seem to be outnumbered. At least they love playing with each other so that's something.

5. I am missing one shoe. Addison never even had a chance of wear these shoes because I just can't find the other one. I love these shoes. They are so cute and I would love some that looks like this. But yet the other shoe is missing...



6. I got a new bag and I love it. I have been using one of those free with purchase bags for my makeup and such. But I have been wanting a new bag for awhile. I had gotten a bag for my bullet journal pens and Washi tape and such from an Etsy store and loved it. So I was a return customer and got this bag. I'm in love and have my eye on a couple other (hint hint husband).


7. I posted a picture the other day on Instagram (and then over course Facebook and such) and I kept thinking I have a picture just like this. I went back through some old pictures and found the same picture.


I think it's the same kid. Of course it's not. The first picture is Addison at about 20 months. The second is the one I just took with Connor (he's 14 months). I never really saw when people said they looked so much alike but I see it now. (Although I have a picture in my kitchen of Addison but could just as easily be Connor. Weird!)

8. We went to the Royals game yesterday with Addison for a mama, daddy, Addie date. We haven't had any time with just the three of us since Connor was born and she really needed some alone time with us. Connor stayed with my parents and definitely had more fun there than with us having to be held the whole time. Plus we probably had more fun. He would have made it through about the National Anthem before he would be ready to go. But we had a great time - spend a little extra on tickets to sit down closer - and enjoyed our treat day with our girl.
