Life After Vacation?

I’m so sorry for these pics! Seriously. I’m sad you aren’t seeing photos of white powdery sand and ocean blown palm trees. Instead you’re about to see What I Wore smack dab in the middle of Minnesota. Not that I don’t adore my state but I enjoy it the most during the summer months, that’s for sure.gypsy tunicAfter returning from the Dominican Republic, I’ve been dealing with re-entry back into REAL life. I haven’t even had a moment to start editing my almost 1800 photos! Yikes. Now that’s alot. Even for me.

Wild Ruffle was well taken care of while I was away so there is minimal work there. Just the usual To Dos with only a little catching up tasks. No biggie.gypsy tunicMainly, my issue has been re-couping at home. I kinda got used to people cooking and cleaning up after this messy family of 5.

I was not ready to grocery shop, plan and cook meals. And on that of all that… CLEAN UP the mess!

Man, a girl could get used to the lazy life. Where is the maid service to wipe down the counters or make my bed? Where is the concierge to draw my bubble bath complete with flower petals and a sweet note? Where is the chef to prepare fabulous 3 course meals three times a day? And the wait staff to bring me drinks on the beach? Ahhhhhh well. I guess it’s all ME again.

Does it sound like I’m complaining about going on vacation and having a wonderful time? Maybe I am. I know, I know. Boo me. I’m even annoying myself.

But all these things are true. It’s hard to come back and go straight back to reality. ..Back to life. Back to reality. Back to the here and now…. Let’s all sing together!

OK, I’m over it. I just needed to vent my pity party. Now I’m good. Thanks for listening.

Next on my list: scrub toilets.Gypsy tunic dressTrue joy found in the mundane. 🙂 Smile fellow toilet scrubbers {aka…mommas}, we’ve got the good life.  xoxo

  1. Right?! It really is hard getting back into the groove of things after a vacation! The Dominican Republic is gorgeous … I didn’t want to leave when I visited either!
    I am loving the tunic dress! And those Frye boots .. I am still saving up for a pair one day!! 🙂
