Just breathe...

That was my motto this week as I went back to work (thankfully still part-time) while also continuing to try to be the best mom and wife I can be (though this part still needs lots of work, i'm sure my family will tell you lol).

It was definitely hard leaving the littles (especially the baby, as i'd gotten pretty used to leaving the others ;-), but my transition back to work was pretty successful. Although i'm sure other areas of my life will become more neglected while I try to balance it all, hopefully I'll have the hang of juggling both my professional and family life soon!

My MIL got here today and is visiting for the next couple of weeks - the kids were pacing back and forth in front of the window all day today waiting for her arrival lol. Unfortunately, Lucas came down sick today, and it seems to be a stomach bug :-( Hopefully it will pass soon so my MIL can get in lots of snuggles with what is normally a happy baby!

Sorry to be so behind on posting my recent work - here are the last two layouts from the gorgeous Jan. kit from AMM, and i'll be back to post my mini-album I made soon.

I apologize for terribly neglecting all my friends' blogs! I plan to catch up veeeery soon. Happy weekend, everyone! Hope you all have some fun super bowl parties planned :-)
