Life With Betty: Double, Double Toil and Trouble

Hello lovely Buttercream fans! Halloween is here and I have to admit…this spooky holiday brings ghoulish glee to our household! When you stop to think about it, it’s the one time of year that it’s completely acceptable to eat as many candy bars as you like, let the cobwebs in your house become decorations and dress up as whatever your heart delights!

Shopping for candy can also be a slight debacle. I’ve opted to buy the giant box of chocolate bars from Costco before, but they didn’t survive more than two days in our house. Are you really saving money if you have to purchase your candy twice?

After a long evening of trick or treating and entertaining, I am looking forward to relaxing in my cozy Buttercream Clothing scarf and lounge pants. A little Netflix, maybe a “mommy sippy cup,” but most importantly, I’ll be cherishing the moment while I enjoy a delicious treat. I earned it.

Life with Betty: Wish I Was Sleeping

Hey, Buttercream fans! Are you as tired as I am? Fellow mothers, you know how I feel. It’s our reason to slip into a comfy dress or a good pair of leggings and pull our hair up into a messy bun every morning before fumbling around for coffee. 

Oh how I wish my extreme fatigue were a result of an exciting dinner party complete with adult drinks. But, as usual, it’s because Baby Buttercream doesn’t “sleep like a baby.” 

Who came up with the saying “sleep like a baby?” Probably someone who doesn’t have one. It’s an honest mistake, really. You can’t help but notice how peaceful babies look while they’re sleeping, but many are blissfully unaware of how they wake up every hour.

I know it’s just a stage and oh how these days drag on but these years fly by. Armed with a good-natured attitude, a Buttercream blanket scarf and a cozy pair of slippers by my bed, I’m always ready to comfort this sweet baby. Until this stage passes, I’ll rely on coffee, my other zombie mom friends and the motivation of finding something cute in my closet to wear.

I hope you’re sleeping like a teenager on summer break. 

Until next time, lovelies!

Life With Betty: Signs of Spring

Life with Betty | Signs of Spring

Hi Buttercream lovers! Are you as happy as I am that it’s spring? I’ve been waiting for what feels like an eternity for this glorious weather! Being cooped up in the house all winter has had its struggles and it is time to open up those windows, do some spring cleaning (well put away the kids’ snow pants at least) and welcome a new season with a fresh start!

If I’m going to be completely honest, handling multiple schedules, ensuring the house is clean(ish), getting the kids fed and arriving to work on time actually isn’t the hard part. The hard part is putting my needs in front of everyone else’s. Don’t get me wrong, being a mom is amazing, but what they don’t tell you in those glorified parenting books (I read them all) is that motherhood is the equivalent of doing the work of thirty people, for free. We’re basically superheroes.

When I do get free time (what’s that?), I often opt for Netflix and what I like to call “Mommy’s sippy cup.” You get the idea. So yes, there is nothing better than this moment of “me time.” The air is crisp, the baby is sleeping and, let’s not forget, my coffee is hot – which is a HUGE win in itself.

It’s so wonderful to actually have some free time. Well, I’m pretty sure I do, unless I’m forgetting something.

Remember ladies, take time to smell the tulips, breathe in the fresh air, and wear cute clothes.

Life With Betty: Mom Luxuries

Mom Luxuries | picture of Betty Buttercream in the ShowerHello, lovely ladies! Betty here; welcome to another day in the life of Betty Buttercream. I’m delighted you are here! You really did catch me at a good time. I’m just taking a moment to soak up one of life’s luxurious, little moments.

I know I can’t be the only mom who looks forward to rising before the sun in a quiet household to enjoy a rare, but precious, minute alone. Between my husband’s snoring and Baby Buttercream fussing all through the night, the silence sounds oh so sweet!

I can’t get enough of the soothing, warm water. I wonder if anyone would notice if I just stayed here all day? Hmm, probably…this is Life with Betty after all. I can’t help but smirk, sigh and soak up the perfectly serene silence. No noisy kids or the drumming of a busy life; only a few birds chirping along with the water as it splashes about.

Ahh, it’s the simple things. No matter how short and sweet, the peace and quiet can’t be beat. Soon the house will be stirring, and the wonderful chaos will resume. I guess that means it’s time for me to slip on my adorable Buttercream Clothing Organic Scarf and Summer Swing dress because who doesn’t want their clothing to match their go-with-the-flow outlook on life?

It may only be a moment, but it was a luxurious moment – a moment I hope all of you delightful ladies can enjoy from time to time.

Thank you for relaxing with me and basking in one of life’s simple treasures.

Introducing, Betty Buttercream!

Hello gorgeous, I’m Betty Buttercream, and it is such a pleasure to meet you! I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to invite you to follow along as I share small glimpses into my delightfully messy, sometimes chaotic, beautiful life.

I’ll be the first to admit that life isn’t always smooth as butter. Navigating through the waves of change can be hard. Luckily, we can always find beauty in the storm.

From the outside looking in, I may look sweet, stylish, and put together, but just you wait. As you get to know me, and the many dimensions of my life, you’ll learn that I’m winging it just like everyone else. I’m a work in progress, and an absolute masterpiece all intertwined simultaneously, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Trust me, I get that as women we face a lot of impossible expectations and mixed messages when it comes to how we should look, act and behave. Let’s let that go. Life is better when you’re having fun. So if you’re ready to stop taking yourself so seriously, let go of guilt and worry, and laugh at the obstacles along the way, join the club!

I can make you one promise and one promise alone: I will always keep it real. My hope is that you can find pieces of my story that relate to your own. Welcome to Life with Betty!
