One. I Buy Kids Clothes
A fun benefit of being “petite” is having the ability to shop in the kids’ section at various stores…yep, you got it. This 30-year old mama of two shops next to tweens. I was in Old Navy a few weeks ago and was on my way to the dressing room when I spotted the cutest little sundress so I snatched it up. Two benefits: 1) it was only $16 and 2) it hit right above my knees which is perfect for me. So, for those shorter gals out there, when you’ve exhausted your options in your favorite stores, be sure to hop over to the kids section…you might find something cute (and save some money while you’re at it)

Three. Reading Material
I’m taking a break from toddler books and such and have been focusing on reading more the past few weeks, which started at the beach. I LOVE Mary Kay Andrews books and they are the epitome of chick lit, which is fine by me. The stories are quick reads and perfect for days spent lounging at the pool, traveling, etc. If you’re looking for some good reading material, my favorites from her include The Fixer Upper, Summer Rental, and Spring Fever.
Four. Celebrate the Small Victories
I’m learning to savor the small wins and take note of the little victories…I used to take these things for granted and now as I get a wee bit older, I find myself paying more attention to the details that really make a life. As some of you know, we’re in potty training mode at our casa and we go absolutely nuts whenever Caroline goes pee-pee on her potty. I just celebrated a fun little milestone with Sugar Bit and I couldn’t wait to call Jeff and tell him. I’m just saying to take note of the things that matter and celebrate them…feel good about a job well done and smile when things go your way!
