The Struggle is Real

travel mug

The struggle is real y'all. You may have seen my hellish day I had this past Sunday on Instagram. To be honest I feel like I've been recovering ever since. And yesterday was another for the books. Maddox is either going through a huge developmental change or he's about to cut some teeth because he wasn't my typical happy, smiley boy yesterday. He cried and threw tantrums a majority of the day. It was really defeating. The two days I had this week really made ladies night out last night that much sweeter! I sooooo desperately needed it. I even stayed out past 10pm. #shutthefrontdoor.

You really never have this whole 'mom' thing down, do you? And by you I mean me. I feel like most days I really am just surviving.

Moral of this story? Buy coffee mugs you can relate to. Or win one! Head over to my Instagram today for details on how to win :) Aspen Lane offers more than just cute mugs. I'm obsessed with their online store and I plan on purchasing a few monogram pillows for my bedroom makeover asap!

I need this travel mug in my life like yesterday. Annnnnd this mug. Shoot, give me them all.

Cheers to the almost weekend my friends. I'm raising my third cup of coffee to you, because well, I stayed out past 10pm. #oldfart

  1. The struggle of raising kids is real. The good news is the tantrums and all day crying doesn't last forever - at least not usually :) I think I need that mug as well!

  2. Sorry it's been so rough! I'm not a momma, but my 2015 has been constant stress until this month. It's funny how we go through seasons isn't it? Hoping his fussy season is short lived. Either way parenting seems to be worth it. :) You look lovely! & these mugs are so fun! I entered on IG (via my stationery IG whoops. ;) ) XO -Alexandra
