Have you ever taken the meyers briggs personality test? I took one yesterday and got ENFJ. I was sort of freaking out when I was reading about famous people that were also ENFJ and one of them was Pope John Paul II. He is one of my favorites so to even be compared to having a similar personality as him might be the highest form of flattery ever. I've always been intrigued with personalities and human psychology in general, and I don't know why it's taken me this long. I've been wanting to reread this book about temperaments lately too, and want to definitely read this one to better understand my girls. This is another good one on learning about other people's love languages. Last week I decided to ask my girls one night about their love language and what made them feel most loved. I asked Zèlie and Sophia the question, and they loved that I even asked. Zelie said she loves it best when I spend one on one quality time with her (of course you do, middle child!). I notice she is the one to always ask me to play cards with her, or read her a book, or play with her, or loves to just do chores with me like folding laundry. Sophia said she feels most loved when we do things together as a whole family, such as bike riding or an activity all together. So interesting, its been making me more mindful when I start my day with them.

Did you get to watch the big fight last weekend? If you saw my instastories, you probably saw that we hosted a few friends over. It was actually a really good fight, I even enjoyed watching. At the end of the evening we were talking about how some boxing matches are rigged! This fight could be genuine, but what if..i mean WHAT IF it was rigged, guys??! There's a part of me that wants to believe this. Such a bummer that Mcgregor lost (i like to root for the underdog), but the upside was that I made the best chocolate chip cookies of my life. I'm not much of a cookie baker, I've always preferred baking a cake instead but these might have changed me forever. I got this recipe from a friend a couple months ago after trying her cookies. I did tweak the recipe slightly by using half dark + half milk chocolate chips instead of all semisweet chips. They are the softest, chewiest chocolate cookies, almost seems toffee/carmel like. Do it!

This may be TMI but Mike is totally that guy in line at target at 10 pm embarrassingly buying the monthly feminine care products for me. #besthusbandever. Last month I decided to save Mike the trip and found this little brand. I seriously don't know why I never thought of using all natural pads?! The packaging is pretty and clean and I felt a huge difference in switching. I'm pretty conscious about using all natural skincare and health products and it only seems fitting that I should be using natural feminine care products too. I'm noticing now other companies like Honest and Toms have natural pad/tampons too. Have you tried? What do you think? Would you make the switch or are you committed to your tried and true? I don't think I can go back to my old brands.

First day of school is Wednesday for my other two girls and I'm in total denial that I have a kindergartener and a third grader! Every August it tugs on my heart to keep them home and homeschool them with the thought of how fast they grow up. But, we had a big school picnic over the weekend and the girls met their new friends and CANNOT wait to start. I cut the tags off their brand new uniforms and threw them in the wash today making it official that I'm cutting the cord again, and again, and again. I'll only have Clare at home with me now, and that might actually be glorious! ha!

The pictures are from a little trip to the farmers market last week. The girls and I really got into the honey testing. :)

Thanks for listening. Hope you all have a great week! Can't believe this is the last week of August!!
