Halloween Politics, Bad Moms, and Friendships In My 30s.
Halloween can be super stressful for some of us. As mothers we have the task of helping the kids figure out a costume that they won’t mind wearing repeatedly to several different events, PLUS something that is cost efficient and kinda cool. It’s a lot of work! This year the boys decided to be super heroes (shocker) except this year my kids decided to be Hulk and Thor.
Josh’s Thor costume was hilariously accessorized by a blond wig. It didn’t last long but when it was on, it was pretty amazing.
We are extra excited for Halloween as I am responsible for taking the kids trick or treating. Unfortunately my neighborhood isn’t very good for giving out candy but we live pretty close to a busy street with plenty of stores that are familiar with us (barbershops, bodegas, restaurants etc) that are always excited to see the boys. We have also decided to attempt to change the anti-halloween culture and have decorated our door and yard with halloween stuff to indicate to anyone on the block that we WILL have candy on October 31st. BE THE CHANGE!
Bad Moms Christmas
Last week my favorite blogger wives and I got a chance to see an early preview of Bad Moms Christmas. It was hysterical. Like scream out loud funny–The whole premise is about taking Christmas back because Christmas is SUCH a stressful time for moms. For me personally, I am always overwhelmed with the gift giving of civil servants, teachers, counselors, friends, family and so much more. I’m trying to get a better handle on that NOW by planning and buying the things I need BEFORE the season officially starts!
Check out our fun review of the movie below in the video we made!
Moms Night Out
Speaking of Bad Moms (LOL) the blogger wives met up on Saturday night to celebrate Thirty Mommy‘s Birthday. The night was a LOT of fun we went out to dinner and danced the night away like 20 year olds. Ever since I read this article on The 13 Rules Of Female Friendships, I have been making a conscious decision to be a better friend. Sometimes that even means being super vulnerable. I made it a point to share more than I usually do and let go of keeping up appearances. You know what? It felt amazing. I trust these ladies. 100%. For me to even write that out loud is a huge shift for me. (Good) friends are crucial to any woman, any mom, any person.
