Ep. 12 - Merry Stressmas! Just say NO!
Happy December! We are so excited for such a wonderful month ahead! Today we are continuing our conversation of "mom guilt," but with a holiday twist to it. We chat about the holiday season and all the "shoulds" that go with it... And like last week, we are going to intention to "stop shoulding all over ourselves!"
Courtney mentioned this sweet quote from Maya Angelou - "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." This can be so well applied to the holidays in regards to our families, friends, and children. It really doesn't matter about our holiday decor, all the holiday-ish things we saw, did, or made, or the documenting of it all on Instagram. What matters is the qualities we cultivated in our homes through traditions and experiences and how we blessed and served those around us.
Here you can find the Huffington Post Article 'Christmas "To Don't" List' - what great reminders!
From our "I'm Totally Into..." segment:
I (Jennifer) am totally, completely, utterly into my Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Primer Heat & UV Protective Primer. This stuff is awesome, you guys. It smells amazing and detangles like nothing I've ever tried. My girls use it, too, but I dilute 50/50, to conserve, because they love to spray and spray, and spray, and spraaayyyy.......
Courtney is totally into The Crown on Netflix! Who else is in on this? And what better time to jump aboard this train, now that there's an American lady (heeeeeyyyy) joining the royal family! Here is the fantastic article from Elle Magazine that Courtney mentioned about the "Royal Rules," and here you can watch the video she also mentioned where we get to see Duchess Kate have her own mommin-ain't-easy moment!
Have a great week, mamas!
