Let’s Talk-Red, White, and Blue

Happy Monday!  Today, Andrea and I are chit chatting about all things RED, WHITE, and BLUE!

Every month we meet up here on the last Monday of the month and chit chat about things.  Here’s a list of the upcoming topics…

I used to be all about some holiday decorating but to be honest this new house (even though I’ve lived here a year-I’m still calling it new! ha!) has me busy focused on just everyday decorating.  And the updating.  Oh my!  My list overwhelms Tab.  🙂

Anyway, to change it up a bit today I’m sharing some RED, WHITE, and BLUE moments…

Red makes me think of being embarrassed because in only about 1.2 seconds my skin can go from flesh-toned to a bright shade of red.  I will NEVER forget this moment in sixth grade.  The entire class was sitting in their desks.  The teacher had just turned on a movie-something “science” related, I’m sure-you know to make it “school-approved”.
It looked JUST like this. 🙂
  I asked to go to the bathroom and had to walk in front of all the desks and tv to get to the door.  I somehow tripped on the television cord and remember FLYING up through the air, landing on my knees, hopping up, and running to the restroom.  Because of the tv, I knew EVERYONE had just saw it happen.  I’ll never forget that moment.

I kind of struggled with this one, because white-what real life story can go with that??  But I’m sharing a SCARY story.  White as a ghost…get it? 🙂

In 2012, we took a family beach trip (with Tab’s family) to Destin, Florida.  We stayed in a condo right on the beach.  Our condo was AMAZING.  Super nice!  It was very long…the door to the condo had nice long hallway before getting to the living room/kitchen area where everyone hung out.  And it had a door handle that you just needed to pull down and the door would pop right open.  I also had two very small children who thought elevators were super cool.

Me and my people-Nixon 2, Ebby Lee-3

We were in the condo getting ready for dinner and I remember asking where the kids were.  They’d been playing hide-and-seek so we thought they were hiding.  After looking in a super calm manner, we all started getting panicked.  They were NOT in the condo.  Then we remembered the ELEVATORS!  The condo building was small-only five floors, but the bottom floor opened to the parking garage! All the adults were running, screaming, and losing our minds to find the kids!  I remember my pregnant self running down the stairs crying as we searched.  Finally-after what seemed like FOREVER but was probably more like two minutes, I heard my brother-in-law yell up that he found them get off one of the elevators.  Hallelujah!!  I’m not sure I’ve ever been more scared in my life. 

Technically, I should probably share a sad story, but I can’t end on a negative note.  When I think blue, I also think relaxing and calm.  What’s better than a day at the spa or let’s be real-even an hour at the spa?  Right?

On our vacation last week, I scheduled a facial at the resort spa.  There’s not much better than a facial in my opinion.

AHHH!!!  Can’t you just hear the fountain sounds by looking at the picture?

I remember my first facial ever.  The aesthetician told me that she’d love for me to come in once a month for a facial.  Once a month?  Who has that kind of time?

This made me laugh!!!  So true, right?

The spa is amazing, but as a mom my favorite (and more realistic) way to relax is a bath at the end of the day.  When the kids are in bed, I grab a book and take a bath.  Works every time.  

What’s your favorite way to relax?  Tonight, will be a little Bachelorette with some snoring kids in the bedrooms.  #ihope

And if you have a story about losing your kids, please share!  It’ll make me feel WAY better about myself.

I hope you guys enjoyed my version of our Red, White, and Blue chat.  Thanks for stopping by! XOXO
