In My Backyard and Have You Pampered Yourself Lately



So....these are some pictures of a yearling moose that I took this week. I was excited to have nice weather finally, and when I was driving home I saw this little guy in the stream in town. I went home and grabbed my camera and came back and started shooting away! I always get a little nervous sneaking up on animals like this...especially when I am not sure if mama moose is somewhere close, but it worked out and I tried to keep a safe distance and keep my eyes on him the whole time!!! The only thing that could have made this setting better was some green on the trees with a setting sun...but I will settle for the nice weather!!!


Alright...I know that this is a funny picture but while I was doing this I was thinking about all of my ladies out there, so I snaped this picture. I wanted to ask all you ladies out there...have you done something for yourself lately? I know that you Mom's out there don't have a lot of time, but the one thing I always stressed with my clients with kids is that they needed to make sure they take some time out for themselves so that they don't crash! I want to challenge all you ladies out there to do 1 thing for yourself this week. This little facial that I did last week and again tonight, I got a long time ago from Bath and Body (for less than 10bucks I think) and it only takes like 15 minutes. While I am waiting I can do lotion, comb my hair, ect. If you really think you don't even have time for this...maybe you could put this on and play monsters with your kiddo(s) .:smiles:. (it would probably be one of their best memories!!) or in all seriousness, make a natural facial and do it with your kiddos...I bet they'd love it (then it would be okay if they ate it too-it'll happen I'm sure). Anyways, I just wanted you all to know how amazing you are-trust me, you deserve a little time for yourself, so please-INDULGE yourself (even if it is as a monster-hehe) your sanity will appreciate you! BTW I would love to know what you all did!!!
Indulgence to all my friends!!!

I have NOT pampered myself lately. It is long overdue. A manicure sounds good. I finished my cards. If you want a sneak peak check out my blog. i will get them in the mail tomorrow. So hopefully they will be there no later than Saturday. I hope that is okay.
