Q and A Summer 2020-Part 3

Hey, Hey, Hey!

Hope your week is going well.  We had a busy, busy beginning of the week and now we’re coasting into the long weekend.   I’m wrapping up my last post answering questions from an Insta-Story a few weeks ago.  You can see Part 1 or Part 2 if you missed them.

Let’s get right to it!
 I wish I had some super innovative whitening treatment to share with you, but I don’t.  I use good old Crest Whitestrips.  If you’ve never whitened your teeth before, I recommend using the treatment just like the box recommends.  Then after six months or more, I’d use one every month or so just for upkeep.

I use the strips maybe once a month or so now just to keep my teeth white and it seems to work well.  These typically go on MAJOR sale on Black Friday and Prime Day {which is usually in July but is now scheduled for September this year}.  I’ll let you know if I see them for a bargain price!
 No…however, I do keep joking that if Tab isn’t back at his office by the time it’s finished I might have to put a desk in that new office too!  I can’t wait to see Shay’s new space.  It’s gonna be amazing!
 I think I’ve covered these in random blog posts…
 We do a lot of quick protein-type bars {especially in the summer}…Think Thin Kid bars, ZBars for Kids, Quest bars, etc.  My kids all love a waffle with peanut butter and Nutella.  Periodically, we do cereal but they’d much prefer cereal as a late night snack versus a breakfast.  #justliketheirmama  On the weekends, we do a big breakfast complete with eggs, bacon or sausage, biscuits, and almost always gravy.  🙂

I teeter between 5’6″ and 5’7″.
I’m not someone who dwells on past mistakes.  If you mess up, figure out how to do better next time and handle it differently during round two.  I’m also not someone who tends to go negative with my thoughts or my actions.  Maybe that’s the high school cheerleader in me. 🙂  Plus this…
God made each of us for a purpose and I’m confident He’ll complete the work he started in each of us. 
 ENJOY IT ALL!!  I was just thinking earlier today about how much I’d love to hold baby Ebby Lee, baby Nixon, baby Bowen, or baby Britt just ONE MORE TIME!  AHHHH!  I know it doesn’t feel like it now when you’re in the trenches, but you will.  Trust me. 
When I finish this blog post, I’m gonna find someone in my house to hold.  Might be a big ten-year-old boy…hahahaha!
 About five years ago, I shared my favorite baby girl names and favorite baby boy names that we didn’t use. I’m not saying Tab would agree with any or all of them, but those would be my choices.

Happy Thursday, Friends!

    Why don't we put Tab in the new office and then you and I can work at your house? Right now, I'm mad at the new office. He can have it. 😉

    This is me NOT trying to be a "know it all". I'm just sharing in case you really needed to keep the names private. You can still see the names of the people you blurred out. I'm reading it on a computer screen, so I don't know if it's different if reading on a phone, but you can see through the black. Just wanted to let you know!

    You realize you can still see all of the user name on the questions, right? Like you didn't actually black them out well enough.

    Hi Ashley! Thank you for saying that so sweetly. I don't really think it matters because they were just questions, but that's SO WEIRD! On my computer screen-even if I zoom WAY in, I cannot see through the black. If I look on my phone and zoom WAY in then I can probably make out most of the names. Sounds like it's the opposite for you though! Again, I don't think anyone was asking any inappropriate question that needed to be private but if they ever do, I'll just cut those off next time. Thank you!
