Beauty vs.The Midst

Hello!  Today is my first blog post.  It is not my first 6 am wake-up call from Beaut.one (my daughter) and Beaut.two (my son).  It is not the first time I’ve started my day facing a potty nightmare, a pile of laundry and the midst.

The midst?  I know.  I was thinking the same thing.  So I looked it up.  The midst means the middle.  “In the midst of the confusion, one strong and steady voice broke through and was heard.”  I don’t know about you but my days are full of midsts.  I find myself in the middle of yet another unfinished episode of The Biggest Loser, a pile of laundry half-folded, a lunch never eaten while it’s still a respectable temperature, emails that I can’t seem to answer on time…life.

In the middle.  And in the midst of the every day I try to find beauty.  Beauty can be found in so many places and sometimes when you are knee-deep in yet another potty-training disaster, a little shopping is in order.

Here are my three fun finds today!  I don’t know about you but I am obsessed with trench coats.  And when my eyes met this Michael Kors beauty it was love at first sight.  The color: truffle.  The lines: classic.  The belt: YES!  The bright heart plate and bowl were rescued from the clearance rack at my local Target store.  Thank you 70% off.  You are so very good to me.  The bowl and plate will not be relinquished to February-only usage at this house.  They (and their sisters) are definitely in the every day rotation.  Two items culled during this shopping experience were 74 cents each.  One was not.

And now for the not so beautiful.  6 am laundry.  What are you in the midst of today?
