Aunties are the best, aren't they? My kids are so lucky they have this gal. ❀️ Feel free to tag someone who you're loving having in your life. πŸ‘―πŸ•Ί

Just in case your social feeds are making you think everyone else has it all together, I offer Exhibit A, wherein my (shoeless) son laid on the sidewalk at the car wash place, rolling around and crying and complaining (and driving everyone batty) for what felt forever because I OPENED HIS BAG OF CRACKERS FOR HIM. I know! Could I be a more callous mother?! The injustice! On the plus side, it was the fastest car wash we've ever had. πŸ˜¬πŸš—πŸ˜‚Happy Friday!

It has been too long since I've done an Easy Kid Fun! Here's one of the old school ones, which is pretend your kids are doggies. Put some water in one bowl, put some crackers in another bowl, and let them have it! Extra points if you only answer them when they bark. WOOF! 🐢😎🐢#easykidfun

Hope you had a day filled with family, fun, and SUGAR (πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜«πŸ˜­), also known as my kids' breakfast, lunch and dinner, which may have had something to do with what I'm calling The Ride of Our Life. πŸ˜‚πŸ£πŸ°// Also, thanks so much, you guys, for the comments and messages on my last post. My instinct to shut down when things get tricky is proving to be a terrible way of doing business - it's remarkable how being vulnerable and sharing lightens the load. Today feels lighter and I feel more like my normal mess, where I might lose my wallet and have to bribe my way out of a parking garage, rather than the past week's mess where I needed to bribe myself with a doughnut to get off the couch. Happy Easter! ❀️❀️

I've been a mess lately, you guys. For the past year we've been dealing with the aftermath of the attack on my sister and her family and it's finally resolved. We're done with courts and DAs and statements and can finally heal without anything hanging over our head. Which, of course, has meant there's plenty of time now to actually feel. 😬
β €
Whether or not I knew it, this last year has been adrenaline-fueled. There was always something to think about, do, take care of and now it's gone and there is room to feel again and, holy crap, my emotions are having an all-night rager. β €
β €
My instinct (and what I normally do) is to create more to do - let's move! redecorate the playroom! start a new project! - or to check out - hide under the covers, stop posting, retreat from friends - so nobody can see my messiness. But, I'm stronger now. This past year has taught me I can do hard things and right now the hardest thing I can think of is staying here in the muck and feeling everything and not running away. So, here I stand. Or, rather, here I lay on the couch. You get the idea. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

See, this purse is pretty sweet. (See last post for context and the perils of my modeling career.) (Also, I meant to post this last night so it'd be like a clever continuation of our conversation but I remembered after I was in bed and my phone was soooo far away and I was so lazy so this is more like a real life convo with me where I pick up talking about things we were discussing yesterday and expect you to keep up.) (Or so my husband says.) (Purse is from @shopbando and holds a surprising amount of goods.)(Good night!) (πŸ˜¬πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ)

I was trying to show you guys my new, epic @shopbando purse and this robot and mannequin kept getting in my way and, omg, HEIDI KLUM DOES NOT HAVE TO WORK IN THESE CONDITIONS, PEOPLE. #reason493Imnotasupermodel

Did you guys watch the finale of Big Little Lies last night? It was sooooo good, wasn't it?!? I loved the book so much and worried it wouldn't live up to it, but, omg, it's all I've thought about today. Women are complicated and strong and have each other's backs and it was fantastic to see it on the screen. More, please! And go read the book if you haven't yet, plus everything else she's ever written, and then report back, k? #lovelianemoriarty πŸ“šβ€πŸ“š

Glamour never rests, people. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ˜‚#laketahoe

Snow! β˜ƒοΈβ„οΈRestaurants! πŸ”πŸ₯No laundry! πŸ†πŸ…Omg, there is nothing like getting out of town, am I right? 😎❀

Today I gave myself the BEST birthday present. I've thought I was turning 43 for months and today I found out I'm only 42! Go Team Self Aware! πŸ˜‚πŸŽ‚πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰Also, do me a favor and on your birthday make it a big deal if you can, k? Because you deserve to be celebrated! Now I've got a busy schedule of champers and cake so gotta run. Yippee! πŸ‘―πŸ˜ŽπŸŽ‰

Omg, I need a vacation! With friends. And drinks. And sleeping in. And a massage, if we're getting really crazy.
Tell me, where would you go with your bestie if you could go anywhere (San Francisco is lovely this time of year, I hear πŸ˜¬πŸŒπŸšƒ)? Then tag them and who knows? Maybe we'll all end up on an island in the Caribbean somewhere...VACATIONS!!!!! 😎🌴🌈
