Linking up with Kristen for What’s New With You!

Reading: Sweet Secrets – This is a cozy mystery, the third in the series. They have all been cute, and they are super fast reads.

Sweet Secrets (Sweet Cove Cozy Mystery, #3)

Listening: One of Zoe’s new favorite songs is Meant to Be by Bebe Rexha. I am just thankful that we can throw a few non disney songs in every now and again. It is so cute hearing her sing the lyrics her way “meant to be meant to be baby meant to be.” It came on the radio one day and she had the lyrics down by the second round and asked to add it to her playlist.

Watching: I finally got the chance to watch Wonder this past weekend. It was soooooo good. Also, I cried about a hundred times during it.

I also watched two cheesy Christmas movies that were totally adorable, Falling for Christmas and A Very Country Christmas. I think both were on Prime. Other than that, we have been trying to catch up with all of our usual shows. I want to start watching the new PLL spin off, and who else is totally stoked for The Hills!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I totally hosted watch parties in college. It was the best!!! Don’t tell me you didn’t squeal in delight when you heard the news too!

Working: Work has been so crazy, that I haven’t really had the chance to do much else. It is totally a good thing, you know, job security and all. And I love what I do!!! It’s just….damn! I need a minute to breath some days. I am still constantly being told thank you and good job. Nothing makes you feel more appreciated than that.

I did do a big purge with all of the clothes I was storing in our guest room closet. It felt so good to be free from all of that mess! The guest room itself now needs tackling, maybe next weekend. I wanted to start small with the closet first.

House: I had mentioned a little while ago that we finally got our house listed. A day later, it was promptly taken off the market. Several people have checked in with me to see how it was going, so I felt like I needed to mention it here. Our first showing went horribly wrong. The agent and his friend he was showing the house to basically went through all of Chris’s stuff in our basement. Posing with pictures, videoing with their phones, just completely violating our privacy. Then to make it worse, when Chris got home that evening….he discovered they left our door unlocked. More than likely, they were going to send someone in later to rob us or something. I don’t even want to think about it. I guess the morons realized we have cameras everywhere. It completely turned us off from the whole process, and our agent acted like she didn’t care at all when Chris called with our concerns. Of course, she started to care after we told her to come get her sign out of our yard. We are just going to wait awhile now before we want to go through all of that again.

Shopping List: I want to get Zoe a water table for Easter. Since our yard absolutely sucks, we can’t really do a baby pool or much else…but at least this water table can sit in our drive way and I can put it away after each use. I am looking at this unicorn one! It looks so fun! Anyone have one that was just a huge hit??

Zoe calls unicorns “corn corns” and I think she would really have fun with it! I scooped up some clothes at H&M and Children’s Place for her too.

I ordered the Pura D’or shampoo off Amazon after doing some research and reading a ton of reviews. I have super fine/thin hair and I always feel like I lose a ton in the shower and in my brush too. I cant really afford to lose so much! I am hoping that this stuff works well, I will definitely report back. Anyone else use it?

After reading Lindsay’s post and seeing Olaplex 3 on a lot of other sites….I have decided to try it out too. Anyone else have the same hair and find a product they absolutely love??? Send recommendations my way!

Things to Think About:

Respectful Parenting

There were some other things I had in my mind to discuss for this post, but I have lost them! I have probably babbled on enough for now, anyways. I hope you all have a happy Thursday!!!!

    I’m SO sorry to hear about your listing problems with the house, but know the right timing will be perfect when it’s time to try again. Zoe likes Bebe Rexha?! That’s my girl! And I’m super excited for the return of the The Hills, but sad that Lauren isn’t a part of it. I’m not surprised at all, but still sad.

    Lol! I like ‘Meant to Be’, too! Great taste, Zoe! My bff has a water table for her kids and they LOVE it. You should absolutely get Zoe one!
    Man… that open house experience makes me so angry for you! How sad and frustrating!! And you definitely need a new agent if that was their attitude. YIKES! Good idea waiting a while!
    Feeling appreciated at work is the best!

    Ugh, I’m so sorry you had to go through that!! I’m so glad that you caught onto what they were doing and you definitely made the right decision. I have never bought/sold a house and the process seems so overwhelming to me. I am sure you find a better realtor you trust!

    Sweet Secrets sounds good, just added it to Goodreads! I’m still shocked over your process with the house, that’s just beyond rude and yes, scary! Bella has that exact Step 2 water table, without the unicorns-and LOVES it…I’d go for it! What type of hair product are you looking for with your hair? Olaplex is amazing. I’m no stylist, but know a lot about different things due to all my years working in the salon and spa. Let me know if I can help 🙂 I used to sleep with Olaplex in and a shower cap on once every few weeks 🙂 Have a good weekend!

    I loved Wonder! The book and the movie! I think they did such a great job with the movie. I cried for sure.
    I cannot believe that happened with your house! Yikes, I am so sorry! We want to sell in about 3ish years and it’s already stressing me out. I can’t imagine how much more stressful that made it for you. Are you hoping to move into something bigger? That’s our goal. Bigger and in a better school district.

    First, I even want that water table!!!! Looks awesome!

    Second, I was a huge The Hills gal & I may try the new one but there is one important thing missing – Lauren. I love her. <3

  • Reply Lauren April 8, 2019 at 3:23 pm

    Omg I love that unicorn table! Alice might need one, too!

  • Reply ShootingStarsMag April 9, 2019 at 10:55 am

    Wow, that is awful about the house showing. Can you complain about the agent to someone? I wouldn’t want to go through that again anytime soon either.
    I still need to watch Wonder! I know I’ll cry, but I love the book. 🙂
    Omg, that unicorn water table is adorable. You must get it. My youngest niece got a water table last year for her birthday and loved it. She’s a water girl.

    The agent who showed your house should have had to schedule an appointment and there should be a record of it. If you want to take it further you could contact his broker. Human nature is people touching things in houses that are sitting out and it is definitely not unusual for people to take photos during showings, and I can do with that. Going through stuff that is not sitting out and leaving the door unlocked is a no no. Your agent didn’t offer to contact the other agent for you?
