A little tired....

Dress:  c/o eShakti

I'm not going to lie....this momma is tired.  Noel has been out of town for 7 days...7 days of Walker cutting some serious teeth, and of him only being completely satisfied on my hip.  I'm hoping for a massage in my near future.  Something to renew my mind...and my body (so I can get these biceps up and running again to hold little man). 

What is your favorite thing to do to renew your mind/body/spirit?

Linking up with Shanna and The Pleated Poppy.

Sleep..haha...To renew my self, I like to have a day of doing what I want to do-nothing planned. I can just sit and watch TV, browse the internet, read, or whatever I feel like doing.

I'm tired just thinking about it! Do hope you can get rested here in the New Year. Well you are sparkling in the pictures and I just love the dress!

I love this dress, this such a cute outfit! I know the pain of having your husband out of town... I usually either take a warm bath and watch a chick flick favorite or go to bed as soon as I out Oliver down, :) the next mor ing I feel great!!! Hope the week passes quickly for you and that you can recover quickly!

Wow! I would be tired and exhausted too! I also like massages to renew myself. And being alone helps me a lot too. All the noise and craziness of life can get overwhelming and I'm able to refuel by being alone.

I also enjoy walking on my treadmill. I "need" that every morning.

I'm actually getting a massage this Saturday. It is MUCH needed after our busy Holiday break and with our 10-day Disney vacation coming up next week!

There is nothing that renews me more than a little retail therapy by myself. I do love a massage though, it's been a very long time since I've had one. I hope you get a little rest soon!

a nice 1.5 hr hot yoga session. i know it might sound a little much, but the calm + relaxation you feel afterwards is so worth it!

You definitely deserve a massage! I love getting a manicure or doing some shopping too to treat myself :)

Love that dress! And I don't have kids but I can still sympathize because my nephew is usually only satisfied to be held by his mommy (my sister.) this too shall pass :)

Kayla Peveler said...

Alright, I'm just going to say it. You are a hot momma! ;) hope you can get that massage soon, I've never had one! Can you believe that?! Hey-- I think you should treat yourself to one, a great way to start the new year off right!! :)

Renae said...

Awh Ashley! hi! That is an easy question. SLEEP! (around 10 hours to be exact). I can't believe it but yes, that is my main rejuvenation method. hahahaha

take care! Thanks for the visit. I was in my pjs, too. We went to bed about 10:30 and set the alarm for 11:55. Got up and hugged and kissed, listened to neighbors banging pans and setting off fireworks. Even the dog was a wake and hyper for about an hour, then we all went back to bed by 1 am.

Nice and simple look! Love the dress, nice shade of indigo. :)
Happy New Year, all the best in 2013! :)

In love with this dress! To rejuvenate I like quiet me time, or a good long bubble bath.

The Mrs. and The Momma said...

Niki Caron said...

It sounds like you've had your hands full! When I am completely burned out, I love a good, hot bath or sometimes I will go get a massage!

Helene said...

a massage sounds like heaven right now.

love that gorgeous dress on you Ashley!

Tyne Swedish said...

This may sound dull but when I need to feel better (after a cold or whatever) I workout then take a long hot bath by candle light. Then I get a great night of rest and wake up me (energized, happy, and free).

Love ya doll!

I like your dress!

I enjoy sitting outside for several minutes with no cell phone, tablet, or laptop...just seeing and smelling nature.

I sleep and drink wine and shop! LOL!!! You poor thing!! I know how it is playing single mom while the hubs is away. Hang in there. And poor little Walker. Hope he is feeling better with those mean 'ol teeth!

Jodi said...

A massage sounds awesome - an hour long one! I hope you get to indulge soon. I love the peek of mustard tights with this outfit!

Lindsay said...

Happy New Year, gorgeous! Get some rest!

stephanie said...

a massage! or a pedi and a good book. Avery's going through a rough patch herself, I keep reminding myself that this too shall pass.

Sam M said...

Oh boo, 7 days, and during the holidays? That just sounds awful. I think he owes you a massage.

Audrey Peeters said...

Love your outfit and that pop of colour from your tights

just some sleep and a warm bath always helps

You are rocking those mustard tights pretty girl! And my gosh, you definitely need a massage after all of that :(

Cate @ Wild Ruffle said...

My favorite thing to do (besides pray about it!) is to Zumba! It's super fun and I'm totally energized by it.

Love the pop of yellow in your tights!

lost in travels said...

Oh my goodness, you deserve a vacation after that! As a non-momma I don't know how you women do it!Major respect for that.

Emmy said...

Having time to read a good book and totally get lost in it refreshes me-- though a massage sounds like heaven too.

Sheena Rae said...

You are much braver than me wearing mustard tights! LOVE THEM ON YOU!

Oh no girl - you need to get some rest! I would recommend hiring a sitter (or your husband? ;) ) for a day and then just spending it all for yourself - napping, reading, having a cup of tea, and go for that massage you mentioned! :)

Little Rosalie said...

You need a good book and a cup of chai tea with cream! That's what you need! And a bubble bath. (:

Head to Toe Chic said...
