Being Productive – Ready, Go!

So this past week was so busy, I don’t even know where the week went.  My little nugget is 8 months old (update post to follow, of course), I bought all the gifts for his Easter basket on amazon, and only got a few things on my to-do list done.  We did go to the Bulls game on Monday and it was awesome.

Today I was up early like always, did Evan’s 8 month mini photo shoot, put together a grocery list, took him to an appointment at his pediatrician’s office and stopped at one of my favorite places to spend my paycheck… Whole Foods.

We bought a bunch of baby goodies to make for the week:  brown rice pasta, oats, beets, spinach, broccoli, peas, mango, blueberries, yogurt, carrots, butternut squash, avocados and pears.  My pocket does cry when I leave that place but I’m still trying my hardest to give him the best I can.

I got home to a few packages, the only way I shop these days is online.  I’m sure the UPS or FedEx guy wonders if I ever leave the house due to my Amazon app. shopping addiction oh and the “We Made Too Much” page at lululemon, somehow I can justify the price if it is on that page….

But I also came home to a lovely package from a wonderfully thoughtful momma in my July 2012 mom’s group:

I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!  My best has written a bit about her use of essential oils and I’ve always gone down the whole foods isle at Whole Foods and browsed all of the little bottles stacked there but was a bit intimidated and never sure what to get so this sampling is going to be awesome!  My stress level has been through the roof and with my rib injury I haven’t let out enough steam lately so I’m really excited to try out some of these and see how  I feel.  My favorite things are alternative methods of dealing with stress, anxiety and energy pick ups, my family has been a fan of acupuncture for the longest and yoga is OBVIOUSLY my thing so I think this essential oil tool is a natural progression of healthy living.

For today, I’m going to focus on cleaning my home, and making it to a yoga class.

What is something new you want to try!? Any awesome essential oil tricks, fav. mixes?
