Every mom needs a day off once in awhile. Here are five fun things to do on a Moms' Day Off (and the cutest crocs sandals to wear for it)!
Thank you to Crocs and Silkworm Social for partnering with us to feature the new Crocs sandals.
Let's talk about real mom life. I get a lot of emails asking how I “do it all.” From working a full time job, to running this blog, to spending time with Lydia. I'm the first to tell people…..I'm often exhausted and feel spread thin. I love every job I have (teacher, blogger, mommy). I can't imagine giving up any of them. But, I often forget to schedule time to be just ME. One of my resolutions this year was to plan “do nothing days”. Every couple of weeks, I book a day on the calendar. I plan to do no work, and it's a day my husband spends with Lydia. They're a rare treat….but man am I refreshed after a Moms' Day off!
So, what do I do on these Moms' Day Off adventures?
Five Fun Things to Do On a Moms' Day Off:
Drink fancy coffee: I know this sounds silly, but my days of fancy coffee houses are over. I tend to drink my coffee on the run while I chase Lydia around the playground. It feels so luxurious to buy a fancy coffee drink from my favorite coffee house, and just ENJOY.
Shop for nothing specific: These days, I tend to shop with a specific item in mind. I need jeans. Or I need lipstick. I don't just wander the mall. One of my favorite things to do with free time? Visit the outdoor mall near us, and wander from store to store.
Read: A real book. Not my e reader. I stow a book in my purse, sit outside, and just READ.
Catch Up with a Girlfriend: On the phone or in real life…..with the busy pace of life these days, my chances to chat with my girlfriends are few and far between. I try to schedule a phone date or an in person date during each of my moms day off adventures. These girls? They're the best. We've been a part of each others' lives since long before we became wives or moms….and sometimes I just need to see them, chat about nothing, and remember the good old days.
Eat a Treat: I'm the only one in my family who likes sushi. So, guess what I always eat on my days off? We all have that one item we love, that no one else does. This is the time……eat away!
