Best Part of MY Day


The best part of MY day is when Branmuffin walks in the door
from a long day of work.  I embrace him, and we talk sweet nothings,
and rub noses for almost 10 minutes straight...
all while the little munchkins quietly wait on the couch.

My favorite part of the day starts around 8 pm, 
both kids are in bed, the kitchen is clean,
the dishwasher is humming, the toys are in the toy room, 
and I'm in my chair or on the couch.

Sometimes I'm alone, if Branmuffin is travelling,
or playing/watching one of his many 
sports he is OBSESSED with....
or we are cuddled up watching the latest reality show.

I never realized how much of a homebody I am, 
or maybe I became one after having little ones.

This is what this homebody likes currently...


"You Don't Know Jacque" by OPI, perfect 
for Fall fingers and toes...

... this is the only time of day I could paint them and
get them perfecto...

Looks like this...


Currently, I am watching this movie....


I will tell you later if it is good, but by the first 10 minutes,
I can tell its your average "chick flick".

This is my recommendation if you have a child
that requires more attention during MY favorite time of day...
which can really turn it into my worst time of day.


The bed canopy her Nana got her from IKEA for $9.99...
we tell her it keeps her safe in her princess bed.

And this night light, it could win an award on its own.
$12.99 from IKEA as well.   It can charge on the plug-in or 
you can unplug it and have them bring it into bed with them.
It changes colors which mesmerizes their sweet little eyelids
to a sleepy slumber if you are lucky.

What do you do at night?

Or, am I the only homebody out there?

being a homebody is nothing to be ashamed of. husband and i usually spend the evening curled up on the couch and watching a netflix movie. either that or he plays some video games while i sit with him and read. we do not have little ones yet, but i can imagine that we will only spend more time shut in and enjoying the time we have together.

Being a homebody is all part of getting older and there is nothing wrong with it...you know I'm one...now that I work from home, I really need to force myself to get out/about. But I love my place...so being at home feels great!!

Oooooooohhhhhhh I'm loving that color on your nails. Never would have picked it myself, but after seeing it on your nails it makes me want to go buy a bottle!!!

Oh, I'm so with you! With Bri on evening shift, the quiet hours of the night are my time. Sitting on the couch watching the season premiere of Bones with a Mike's in one hand and Doritos in the other is my kind of night. Bummer, I ran out of Doritos...

Okay so Back Up Plan was a horrible movie. I'm sure you've realized that by now...and I've been rocking that color all summer, just love love love it! It's OPI's #1 selling color right now.

OK- I actually liked the movie- thought it was cute. Predictable and a chick flick- but I enjoyed it

I am totally the same... I adore my kids more than anything in this world- but after a day of running, chasing and entertaining kids, helping my husband with the business, etc. etc. I love to sit, relax, take care of a few things on my laptop, watch a little tv- with a picked up living room and a clean kitchen- it does wonders for the psyche! I don't relax until they're tucked in ;)
