8 Reasons You NEED A Momcation

Momcation; (n.)  1. A break from one's motherly duties.

Sometimes you just need a vacation.  I'm not talking about a vacation to Disney World or some family getaway where I pay money to basically chase my crazy toddlers around and miss out on more sleep.  I'm talking about a momcation!  A getaway that's all about you and all about relaxing and doing thing you love doing.

For me, I love creating content; taking photos, writing, and spending time learning about cool places!  Anyone with kids can tell you that it's just hard to explore for real with kids not cooperating so it's rare I get to do that anymore!  Do I love spending time with my babies?  Of course I do!  I love seeing those cute little faces light up and get so excited about things they find and see and vacations hold so many possibilities.  Momcations are all about you though.  It's so important to take time for yourself as a mom and getting away from your cares for a little bit can make all the difference!  I was so stinking excited to visit the West Baden Springs Hotel this weekend to have just that, our momcation!  My girlfriend, Ashleigh, and I packed our bags, arranged our kids and husband's schedules and headed out on our way!  Here's how I knew I needed a momcation:

  1. I EAT A LOT OF STRING CHEESE

    • Yep, it's true. When you eat a ton of string cheese I feel like it's time to get outta the house and get some real food in your belly!

  2. I'VE STARTED GETTING EXCITED FOR THE NEWEST EPISODE OF ODDBODS

    • If you haven't seen Oddbods on Netflix, you're mossing out. Custest show ever, my favorite character is the green Oddbod, Zee! (See-I need this momcation!)

  3. I HAVEN'T WORN DRY-CLEAN-ONLY CLOTHES SINCE 2013

    • It's true...who has time for that!?

  4. I ROCK BACK AND FORTH WHILE STANDING...AND I DON'T HAVE A BABY!

    • I know, even with no baby in my arms, it's like this unstoppable habit!

  5. THE LAST TIME I TOOK A BATH WAS IN 2015

    • Before Brody was born I took a bath and it was nothing short of glorious.

  6. I CAN'T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I SHAVED MY LEGS ALL THE WAY

    • You know how it is...get the part that shows! Haha

  7. I CLEAN MY HOUSE ALL DAY LONG AND IT'S STILL NOT CLEAN

    • (Insert eye roll here)

  8. SILENCE-WHAT'S THAT AGAIN?

    • With two toddlers at home, silence simply does not exist!
