Look at me, three blog posts in one week! Life has been insane the last few weeks, and instead of talking about all that right now….I want to talk about my favorites! Speaking of favorites, who else is stoked that it is October!!! October, November and December are my favorite months of the year!! I just love the fall, the crisp mornings (where are they????), football, thoughts of Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up, all the fun fall treats, more togetherness with family, Zoe’s birthday! And also this…
You guys!!!! I mean, logically I knew that 2020 was upon us. But I hadn’t really considered the fact that it is the last few months of the decade!!! What are you going to do to make it count???? It isn’t too late to finish out strong!
Favorite Moment: Last night when I picked Zoe up from daycare, there was a note on her cube saying that she should wear panties to school tomorrow!!!! She has been doing so well with potty training!!! I am so proud of her, she has worked really hard the last few weeks.
Some advice for parents that are entering the potty training phase….wait until they are ready!!! They tried to push Zoe over the summer with it, since she was the youngest in her class at the time and all the other kids were potty trained. But, she was 6 months younger. She simply didn’t have an interest and was not ready. Now that the new school year has started, she is in with more kids who are learning. We did potty charts, rewards, tried out panties on weekends we were home, and were just patient and didn’t force her too much. It took about three weeks, but now she has gone some time with no accidents! She is so proud of herself every time she goes, and it has become fun for her instead of a nightmare for all of us.
Favorite Products: I have tried out some new lotions that I really love. I have been using these for about 3-4 months now. They all smell fabulous and feel great on my skin. The Hydro Boost has hyaluronic acid, so you know it is good!
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Whipped Body Balm – I love that this stuff is in a jar, that way you can use every last drop of the product! This has a nice whipped finished, as advertised. I usually use this in the evenings.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Body Gel – I like this one for after my shower. It is a little bit lighter, and perfect for putting on right before getting dressed. It isn’t greasy at all.
Jergens Honey– I LOVE the smell of this one. I usually switch between this and hydro boost in the mornings. I can only find it at Ulta, Target and Walgreens. Not sure why that is. I hope they are discontinuing it!
Favorite Recipe: Whipped this recipe back out this week! I often make it with just salt and pepper too. I popped it in the air fryer, which worked out beautifully.
