I’m a firm believer in treating yourself for…pretty much any accomplishment. Making it through another day, finishing the laundry, cleaning the bathroom, taking out the garbage — you name it.
No, seriously! Before last weekend was over, I was feeling the Sunday scaries — you know, that feeling you get you reeeeeeally aren’t ready for the week ahead — so I told myself, while I walked around downtown San Rafael with the coywolf and El Hub did a quick project at work, that I could treat myself to anything under 20 bucks.
There were quite a few contenders at Ulta and Copperfields Books…
2. Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Mists, $15 each
3.Tony Moly Hair Packs, $16.50 each
4. Write It Down Let It Go Worry Relief Journal, $14.95

6. Van Goh’s Sunflower Soap, $3.50
7. Have a little Pun Notecards, $14.95
8. Tony Moly Mango Mild Sun Block, $19.50
9. Tony Moly Banana Sleeping Pack, $16.50
10. Sock It To Me Butterfly Knee-High Socks, $10.99
I ended up going with this $8 Kiwi Gummy Bear Hand Jelly from a Korean brand called Skin Food at Ulta.
I named him Marvin, and now he lives in my purse!
I never thought I’d be able to say this…
But I can get the baby out of the house and into the the car in less than 10 minutes now!
You guys, I can’t even begin to tell you what an accomplishment this is! Because when Connor was super tiny, it would take me half an hour to get all of her stuff together in her diaper bag, and everything sorted, and her food, and get her dressed, and get her fed so that she wouldn’t get hungry for the next three hours. And THEN to get her into her car seat.
Now, though, I’m much more streamlined. I just stick on her shoes, grab her diaper bag, and buckle her into her seat.
Ten minutes. TEN MINUTES! I never thought I’d see the day…
