Time for Myself

That title may seem a bit selfish but as any new mom knows, sometimes getting time to myself can be quite difficult. Grace is so used to me being around all of the time and she can get pretty grumpy when I try to leave.

For example, this weekend I decided to go get my hair done for the first time since I was 7 months pregnant. So it's been about 8 months and my hair was looking rather drab. I was able to get a great Groupon to a local fancy salon and I warned Mike that it might take a while! I got highlights and a new cut and in total it took about 3 hours. Grace screamed the entire time I was gone. I felt bad, but I couldn't exactly leave in the middle of my appointment! I came home to find Mike asleep on the bed with Grace fast asleep on his chest. I wish I had gotten a picture. Anyway, I'm happy with my new look and it was nice to have some "me" time. Here's my before and after pictures:

Now, Grace is asleep and I'm watching "Pride and Prejudice" with Colin Firth. I think getting time to yourself as a mom is extremely important and I'm hoping to get more in the near future! What do you like to do during your "me" time?


  1. Nice hair!

    I agree that you have to have time to yourself and often! Its just as good for your baby as it is for you.

    I like to run (though I do have a jogging stroller that I take Eva out in once in a while) and do my weekly CVS shopping trip on my own. Those are things that I truly enjoy doing alone!

  2. I love to blog and enter cloth diaper giveaways during my free time. Nap time is ME time!!!
