Welcome to the Sunday Skim. Your weekly recap of all things fashion, family, food and drink, social, news, health, lifestyle, home and beauty! Get your coffee and sit back and relax…
Fashion… The Nordstrom Winter Sale ends today. You have one last chance to grab some amazing winter apparel at great deals. I have already bought way too much but if I was to grab three more things it would be this, that and these.
Family… If you have kids in school you probably have heard the terms STEM and STEAM. Want to know more? Check out this post on what they are, what they do and why you want your kids doing it….
Food and Drink…. It’s crawfish season in Louisiana but what are you going to do with the leftovers??? NOLA.com can help here.
Social… Ballet Apetri will be hosting a Grand Echappe for their wonderful dance school on March 10th. You can find out more about the event at their Facebook page here. Also, make sure you save the dates for YLC’s Wednesday at the Square. You can check them all out here.
News… Meet the US closing ceremonies flag bearer here. In case you haven’t been watching the Olympics non stop it’s over today. Tonight will be the closing ceremonies at 8pm.
Health... Summer brings an interesting dynamic to our household each year. We spend a lot of time doing things like playdates, the pool, park and fieldtrips but what about the rainy days when you are stuck home? Those are the days that always kill me because how do you get boys to exert all the energy they need while not tearing your house down?
We use yoga currently in our home as a coping mechanism for anger and as a time out of sorts. I am going to have this chart printed up and this summer when one of the boys needs a little extra time to stew about something I am going to have them do this rather than just sitting in the time out spot.
Lifestyle… I am always looking for ways to reduce my stress level. Being a stay at home mom I don’t have the same “stress” that a person who is working does but I still have things that raise my anxiety level. Especially the kids who I love and adore but can make me a wee bit crazy some days. This list is great but drinking enough water has been a life saver for me. When I feel myself getting overwhelmed I will ask myself, when is the last time you had water???
Home… Oh I just love this! It’s always fun to see what was once trendy and in style and how bad it is compared to today. I wonder what our kids will say about our decorating in 20 years???
Beauty… I love Rodan & Fields Microdermabrasion paste but in a pinch I will make my own sugar scrub. Some of these are just lovely.
