FEELING: This weekend the base is having an air show and we're all pretty excited about it! Max has yet to physically set foot on a C-17, so it will be fun to see him get up close and personal with his dad's jet. After all, he's been talking about it nonstop for weeks. The double-barrel grin that paints his face whenever Flyboy mentions that he can sit in the cockpit if he'd like is priceless. It will be an experience for the books. We're all pretty giddy about it!

THANKFUL FOR: If you're not going to sleep at night with the help of a little melatonin, are you even living? One of my proudest moments from this past year was getting my dad hooked on them. I typically opt for the Olly variety; however, my dad has switched to a strawberry flavor and my interest is piqued. Seriously though, these magical gummies make me sleep like a baby. I pop a few in my mouth before hitting the hay and within thirty minutes I'm out. 

THINKING ABOUT: Walmart has been cozying up to influencers BIG time, and I'm just not buying it. Anyone else feel me on this one? As someone who has actually frequented the store (What up, Swell Rio?!), I find it hard to believe that some of these bloggers are trying to schlep goods from the superstore as though they actually shop there. Insert giant eye roll here. Apparently, authenticity gets thrown out the window when there's a fat paycheck involved. One minute they're shilling a $70 "holy grail" foundation and the next week it's all about a drugstore brand. Then there's the Gucci knock-off purse paired with a $6 dollar jumpsuit when you know they've got at least four pairs of Golden Goose sneakers in their closet and an array of Mara Hoffman dresses to choose from. I'm ALL for a mixture of high and low, but some of the ways these influencers are trying to make product pushing seem organic is laughable. 

READING: I dropped Max off at preschool yesterday, made my way to the tailor and dry cleaner, then hopped on over to a nearby Starbucks where I sat down with my coffee and pored over a stack of magazines I'd yet to read. Is this real life? Pinch me. Everyone told me that I'd end up enjoying my newfound free time, and while leaving Max with tears in his eyes is still extremely rough, I see what the others were saying. The mom guilt is still there, but I'm learning to shake it off. The separation is best for both of us and the hours of people watching I'm logging in are priceless.

WATCHING: You guys, the new Breaking Bad movie will be released October 11th on Netflix and Aaron Paul's recent Instagram post has me wondering if Walter White REALLY died in the series finale? The scene where he's wounded is slightly ambiguous. Selfishly, I'm hoping this means we see more of Heisenberg. It's been rumored that Bryan Cranston will make an appearance in the film. I hope it's more than just a flashback. It would be the ultimate early birthday gift!!

EATING: Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I pack Max's lunch for preschool and I can't help but wonder what his teachers think when they see him dip his Pirate's Booty into vanilla bean Noosa yogurt as he's done religiously for the past 2.5 years. Yes, you read that right. Cheese puffs and yogurt. Ew. It's one of my child's weirdest culinary "fusions" since dipping his hot dog in chocolate milk for a solid six months (age three). One of these days, I hope to work up the courage to discuss "Noosa Knuckles" with his dear teachers. They have to be just as grossed out as the rest of us.

: Yesterday on our way home from school I asked Max about the craft he made with his class (paper plate doused in blue paint with googly eyes and a popsicle stick) when he said, "The teacher says we made a shark, but I don't think so. Where's the dorsal fin? All I see is a blue fish!" Ay yai yai, Maxwell! Cut the teacher some slack, will ya?!

LOVING: I love a good sweatshirt, but I don't have to tell you that, right?! Well, this Puff Sleeve Pullover is being added to my list of favorites and I thought you should know. It's the perfect hybrid and a great momsemble addition. When you wear it you feel put together, but comfy at the same time. The best part? The cozy terry material is lightweight, so you can wear it now—then layer it up when the temps get cooler. Oh, and it's also currently on sale for 30% off.

How are you feeling today? What are you up to? Thanks for stopping by!! 

(Also, I promise not to talk about preschool forever. Hehe!)
