Friday, it is about time! I am so ready for a weekend right now. Just a few more hours and we are freeee! For two days, anyways. It is supposed to be rainy and gross Sunday through mid-week so I am going to have to take advantage of today and tomorrow!

Favorite Moments:I received a super sweet package in the mail from Lindsay this week! I cant even begin to tell you how thankful I am that blogging has lead me to wonderful friends like her. I cant wait to enjoy the amazing smelling bath bomb that is inside that box!!!

I had a rough day Tuesday and I decided that I was going to stop letting shit get to me and focus on the positive. I stopped by Saigon and grabbed a Thai tea and headed back to the office with a positive attitude. Sometimes you just need a little something to push you through.

We had some delicious meals this week! We had sloppy joes over baked potatoes, taco bowls, and peanut butter chicken with thai quinoa slaw this week. Just look at those gorgeous colors in that slaw!! I will get the recipe up soon.

Favorite Recipe: How delicious do these Greek quinoa bowls look??? Thinking they need to happen for lunch next week.

Favorite Sephora Picks: The Sephora sale starts today!!! I have actually replaced a lot of things recently, and don’t really need anything right now. Doesn’t mean I am not cruising the site today to have a little looksie. Recently I splurged and got the Brazilian Bum Bum cream that I have been wanting forever. This stuff smells soooooooo amazing and makes my skin so soft!!! I highly recommend this little bit of luxury in the mornings. Totally worth it.

Some of my ride or die favorites are the Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion, the Bobbi Brown Cream Shadow Stick in Sand Dune is an amazing every day color, the cult favorite NARS Orgasm Blush, full coverage Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation that lasts all day long even in the south’s awful humidity, the Elizabeth and James Bourbon Rollerball is my absolute favorite every day fragrance that is perfect for the office,  and the best liquid lipstick I have ever found….Kat Von D in Lovesick. What are some of your favorites??

Favorite Lust: I am in need of some sandals, bad! I also am in need of a serious pedicure, that is neither here nor there. What are you favorite at home fixes for awful looking feet? I feel like nothing I have works anymore. Anyways, Michael Kors is one of my favorite shoe designers. They are relatively affordable for designer brand, and every pair I have ever owned are seriously comfortable and last a long time. I have my eye on these black/gold plated sandals...

And the Penelope Wedge that is on sale at Belk and Nordstroms right now. They come in a gold color, as well as black. I really like the black. I have dressier black wedges and I need a more casual pair like this.

Also, how amazing are these Carlos wedges????? They have rose gold and gold. I am leaning towards rose gold. They are such an amazing price at Nordstrom Rack! I love knowing that if I order them and they aren’t comfy, I can take them back to my local store no problems.

I am not sure what is going on, but I have had some problems with my blog this week. It was done off and on the last few days, and I wasn’t able to get my recipe post up for the keto pizza skillet or anything else. I will get that up next week, I promise! So many of you mentioned you would like to try it. In other news, it has just been another busy week with work and life, you know. The usual adulting. It has been in the 70s-80s the last few days, so that has been nice. Though, we are supposed to have severe weather tomorrow. Again. So over that.

Favorite Memories: Zoe had super hero day at school. To keep from being that mom who doesn’t participate in the fun events, I headed out to Target and found the most perfect Wonder Woman outfit for her. She looks adorable and everyone made a fuss when we walked in the door.

We had some good eats this week. I made the keto cheeseburger skillet last night, we had egg roll in a bowl, salads, kung pao chicken and tonight is braised pork chops. I managed to squeeze in a last minute impromptu lunch at Babalu with Laura and I grabbed an acai bowl from Farm Bowl the day I ran to Target on lunch.

Favorite Recipe: This “healthy” take on Irish Nachos has me totally interested. YUMMMMM

A healthier twist on an Irish pub favorite – dangerously good!!

Favorite Purchase: I am in need of a few spring/summer pieces to replace some stuff that is worn or ill fitting. I found this adorable Style & CO A-Line dress from Macy’s on sale for half off. The fabric is so soft and flowy and the color is absolutely gorgeous (uniform blue). I really love the length of this, as most dresses I deem too short.

I have my eye on this white denim jacket. It was a great length and very stretchy denim, so very comfortable. I am waiting for it to go back on sale. I should have scooped it up with the dress because that day it was under $30!!!


Have you tried the Brazilian Bum Bum cream from Sephora??? This stuff is seriously amazing. It smells so good and makes my skin so soft. With the VIB sale coming up, its totally worth the splurge.

I am hoping that March takes it’s business with her when she leaves. I feel like I am a sinking ship lately. The house is a mess, I am literally behind on all the things, and every time I cross one thing off at work, two more drop in it’s place. Also, allergies. If you dont know what the entire state looks like covered in pollen, take a trip down south in the spring. I have been living down here for 20 years now, and I am still shocked every spring when everything has a yellow/green coating of nasty on it for two months straight. There isn’t enough Clariton or nasal spray in the world to make you feel better. And that sentence made me realize something. It really has been 20 years since we moved to the south. Do you know how old that sounds that I can say, oh it’s been 20 years since….and I am not talking about being in elementary school?! LOL.

Anyways, you guys it is Easter weekend! The schools here have been on spring break this week. I can FINALLY pull out my sandals and flip flops and start wearing them on Sunday. I try to wait until Easter to deem them appropriate for work. Zoe’s daycare is closed today and my office closes at 2pm, so I am going to work from home this morning. My sister is supposed to come over for a bit today, and I am supposed to see my mom tomorrow for a little while. Haven’t seen her since Christmas! We spend Easter with Chris’s family, so we will be over there Sunday. What do you have planned?

Favorite Moments: I ate at Farm Bowl TWICE this week. Those acai bowls are addicting and they make it so easy to just drop in and take one to go if you have errands to run.

Zoe’s daycare was closed yesterday too, so I worked from home and we had some craft time before her nap. She is so much fun at this age!!! We did some painting, and colored in a book. She has this fun game where I lay on the couch and she “sneaks up” behind me and I look all surprised that she is there. She laughs and laughs so hard and loud that she snorts and then I laugh too. She can play that game for like 10 minutes straight. She has started giving kisses and they are the sweetest little kisses ever. And she learned the word “uh oh” and basically repeated in the car the entire way home the other night. (Our drive is about 35 minutes from daycare to the house in the evenings, mind you.) It was the cutest thing and I would repeat her and we would both laugh.

She received her first Scholastic books on Monday!!! They had a book fair at her school a few weeks ago and I was so darn excited about it! Was it not your favorite day of the school year??? I think my favorite book from the stack is Shoe-La-La. It is so cute! I put them all aside to put in her Easter basket, so I cant wait til we start reading these. But of course, I read them all before I put them up because book nerd over here!

Favorite Recipe: This Thai rice bowl sounds fabulous.

Thai Cashew Coconut Rice with Ginger Peanut Dressing. This rice salad is seriously addictive and always a huge hit at potlucks!

Favorite Purchase: Target has their t’s on sale for $5. Normally I would think, there is a reason they are $5. But no, seriously. I ordered a red and a white pocket v-neck with my Target card and it was less than $10 and they are amazing!!! It has been a long time since I have worn a plain tshirt. Normally they fit like garbage and I don’t feel comfortable. There is something about the material and the cut of these that rivals some of the $30 and $40 ones you can find at Nordstrom. Thanks Lindsay for talking me in to them!

To say I am glad that the weekend is upon us is an understatement. This week was exhausting and I am pretty much ready to ditch all work and thoughts of work for the next two days! I don’t even know what we have planned for this weekend, but I know that some cleaning needs to be involved. Goodness, I don’t think anything other than dishes and laundry has been done in like two weeks. Oops. Also, thanks to all the rain and the random spring days….the grass is going to be needing attention soon. Adulting, am I right?

Favorite Moments: We have been enjoying a lot of healthy dinners this week. I really enjoyed egg roll in a bowl and turkey burgers with my maple roasted  brussels! Another one we have nearly every week is my baked pork chops recipe.

Chris and I had a lunch date at IKKO on Tuesday. We both ordered sushi and I also enjoyed an egg roll. It was delicious! It is nice to get to spend some time together, just the two of us.

I haven’t had lunch with Laura the last two weeks and it makes me sad. We are going to have to make up with something awesome next week!

Favorite Recipe: It is no secret around these parts that I love a cheeseburger. I found this keto friendly recipe that I cant wait to try!

KETO Cheeseburger Casserole.  It's everything you want from a burger, with a low carb way to enjoy all the delicious flavors!

Favorite Lusts: I am in desperate need of a wardrobe refresh, mainly spring/summer clothes. I also need one or two more pair of sandals to replace some that have been retired. I am in love with these bow flip flops from LC at Kohls. Right now they are on mega sale and I want to scoop up both colors!

I also like these knotted ones, same brand.

Has anyone tried these Articles of Society jeans at Nordstrom? They are on sale, making them under $40, and they have decent reviews. I have never tried a pair on to know. My current jeans are looking frumpy and baggy. Thank goodness.

I need to grab one or two of the Old Navy Swing Dresses while they are on sale. I have one from last year that I wore the crap out of. My only issues is, the arm holes are too big in the size I usually grab. I have this issue at a lot of stores with sleeveless tops and dresses. Is it just me???

Because of said arm hole issues, I live in my jean jacket over my dresses. The one I have is about 7 years old and on its last leg. It is from Old Navy and I really dont care for the fit of it to be honest. I think I need something a little higher quality to look better. I like the look of this one, but we dont have a Nordstrom for me to try it on. What is your favorite?? Spam me with them please!

I feel like this is the week that wouldn’t end! I am behind on everything. Work is slammed slammed slammed. I don’t know what happened but all of a sudden my WIP has quadrupled in size. I mean job security or whatever, but damn! Not to mention we had homeowner problems this week, adulting things we had to do, and Chris had his debit card hijacked or something. I dont know. Add to the mix the fact that Zoe has decided that she wants to act like a toddler now and throw herself on the ground every time she doesn’t get her way. Goodness. I am done and ready for the weekend and a glass of wine.  You feel me?

Favorite Moments: Laura and I decided on Farm Bowl + Juice Co for lunch this week. We wanted to see what the acai bowl hype was all about. You guys, it’s legit!!! I was so surprised by how much I thoroughly enjoyed every last bite of the delicious bowl I ordered. I thought it was going to be more like yogurt, but it was so cold and more solid…reminded me of sherbet texture almost. Anyways, I am hooked and I think this is going to be the best refreshing lunch option on a hot Alabama summer day! Can’t wait to go back!

The amazing exterior wall and the gorgeous interior of the place doesn’t hurt either! They even have a swing out front that I plan to sit on next time. I am pretty sure I could get Zoe to eat one of these bowls filled with antioxidants too!

We have still been eating healthy during the week. Some of our eats included bbq chicken stuff baked potatoes (I tossed just a little blue cheese on mine to give it a little something) and meatballs with green beans and red wine vinegar quinoa with spinach.

Favorite Recipe: I would like to start incorporating more meatless meals into our rotation. How amazing do these tacos look? I mean…tacos!!!!

Honey Lime Sweet Potato Black Bean and Corn Tacos - they're so healthy and SO delicious!!

Favorite Purchase: Loft had 40% off their tops so I scooped up this striped racerback tank that fits SO good! It is sort of flowy and longer in the front and back to cover all the things you want covered. I think it is perfect for under cardigans/jackets or by itself with a bra-let or something underneath.

I also grabbed this azalea shell that is more of a gray/blue than the picture. It is such a gorgeous color and perfect for super hot days to wear alone, or under a cardigan/jacket for work. I have already worn both shirts twice.
