Happy weekend, friends! We are less then two weeks away from Santa’s debut and we are in high gear around these parts working hard to hand pick gifts for our family and friends. Instead of wrapping today we opted to bake chocolate chip cookies and have a dance party in the kitchen to Christmas tunes. Sawyer is a riot with his latest dance moves. He gets a kick out of himself and likes to include Tucker in on the fun by carousing him with treats and kisses while he gets down to the music. Sawyer had two whole chocolate chip cookies and than washed it down with an ice cold baaaa, or bottle, and was ready for a nice warm nap before lunch. It was a low key Saturday but sometimes those are the sweetest.
While Sawyer napped I did the usual, laundry and a little cleaning before I took a quickie shower and grabbed a bite to eat. He was up before noon and ready to get his afternoon party started. We did our usual Target run and found some pretty wrapping paper to add to our holiday collection. I’m making it a personal goal to start wrapping this weekend and finish the task by the end of the week. Once the kiddos are officially complete I will sleep much better, mama’s you know the deal!
This evening the hubby and I are headed to a holiday cocktail party. Sawyer and I went shopping for a new dress that I’m excited to sport. We found the dress at Lord N’ Taylor and I fell in love with it’s velvet silhouette and feminine neckline. I’m pairing this little black number with wine colored tassel earrings, a red lip, high suede pumps and a sleek pony. I’m looking forward to a festive evening out with my guy while we sip our favorite cocktails with a great group of people amongst the twinkling trees.
Tomorrow we are getting together with close family for a pre-Christmas gathering. Delilah is excited to visit with her cousins and eat some yummy food. After our get together I’m headed back out to the shops with Gigi to finish up the few gifts left on my list while the hubby keeps the kiddos back at the house and preps them for bed. This calls for a celebration, friends! Night out with the hubby and Christmas shopping by myself on a Sunday, it’s going to be a glorious weekend, que the happy dance!
On a different note, who still has shopping to do? Every year I pretend I will have all of my shopping done by December but for some reason I can not pull of the task. My intentions are strong but with no prevail I’m still shopping up until the big day. The hubby has asked me for a few weeks now what I want for my Christmas present this year and I usually tell him the basics; perfume, slippers, jewelry….but this year Im changing it up a bit. This year what I really want under the tree is a mommy makeover from Baltimore Bodies.

I’m also a firm believer in feeling good about your self and having goals to work towards to keep your mind working, your body strong and self confidence high. Being a mom is hard and being a mom, a wife and an employee is more than hard, am I right!? We are constantly working to make others happy and healthy and it is vital that we don’t neglect ourselves.

A few treatments that I have my eye on for Christmas this year include Botox, Body Contouring and Skin Care. After giving birth to my two beautiful babies I have a few areas that I can’t seem to fix with just diet and exercise. Sawyer was a rather large baby weighing nearly nine pounds and my lower stomach will never be as tight as it once was. I thank god everyday that my body was able to create and feed two healthy babies but I also would like to feel confident in a swim suite and i my skinniest jeans. You know what mama’s, that is okay, we are allowed to have realistic goals! We should feel good about ourselves and not place our body expectations into a negative connotation box- we are mothers but we are human! This is where Baltimore Bodies come into play.
If you are looking to shave off a few pounds from a targeted area The Ultratone Futura Pro uses non-invasive, pain-free technology to re-educate muscles in those trouble spots. This Body Contouring Treatment changes muscle patterns every minute to simulate efficient muscle training and provides immediate results without swelling, redness or tenderness.
Another treatment option to consider is the Non- Invasive Exilis Ultra. This treatment works to tighten the skin and reduce fat cells on various areas on the body. This treatment is FDA cleared and integrates the power of radio frequency and ultrasound energy to infilitrate the dermis. This treatment will stimulate collagen production, and melt unwanted fat cells for noticeable results. Exilis Ultra may be a treatment for you if you’re looking to tighten the skin on your face, around your eyes, neck and hands. This treatment can also be used to plump the lips, sculpt the stomach, love handles and legs. There is no recovery time for this treatment and each session takes about 40-60 minutes. Baltimore Bodies was kind enough to share a before and after image of this technique, see below mama’s, it’s amazing!
In addition to Body Contouring I’m also looking at Botox for my forehead. I tend to squint a lot and I have noticed a few fine lines between my brow that will not fade with night cream. Botox is a quick procedure that helps to minimize signs of aging. With an hour of time, Botox will aid in making your skin look younger, refreshed and revitalized. Along with Botox I’m hoping to invest in the SENTÉ Skin Care Line, reputable skin care products that are non comedogenic, paraben-free, RIPT tested, non-irritating and also gluten free.
SENTÉ Skin Care has several formulas to chose from including both creams and serums that penetrate deep into the layers of the dermis to jump start collagen production, regenerate the skin and reverse the signs of aging. The SENTÉ line is unique in it’s elegant technology and effective ingredient, Heparin Sulfate (H.S.A). H.S.A. is a naturally occurring, biologically active molecule found in all layers of the skin and plays a significant role in skin healing and cell renewal for ultimate results. SENTÉ skin care aids in the reduction of inflammation, redness and fine lines. It also works to even out skin tone, hydrate and correct past and present damage at the cellular level. SENTÉ firms, tightens and improves skin smoothness and texture. If you are looking for a top of the line brand that will give you noticeable results to kick off the New Year, SENTÉ Skin Care is the way to go!
