Friday Favorites

Oh hey, Friday!! This week sort of got away from me! I realized that when you don’t have somewhere to be every day, you begin to have no sense of what day it is. I am speaking the actual day (Monday, Tuesday, etc) and the date. This week I have made great progress in the spare room!!! I am so proud of myself for committing to it during Zoe’s morning naps instead of sitting and watching TV. I was 5 weeks postpartum on Sunday and it was like a switch flipped and I feel much more human that I did before! I really have my mobility back too!! I still cant climb in our bed, but I started sleeping on the couch laying on my side instead of sleeping in the recliner. That coupled with the fact that Zoe has been sleeping in 3-5 hour stretches over night means I am getting the best sleep I have had since even before having her!!!

I need all my friends to stop getting sick! A few weeks ago, a girlfriend was supposed to come by one afternoon to visit for awhile but she and her daughter were sick. This week I was supposed to go to lunch with my lunch club and introduce them to Zoe…but illness strikes again. I miss my friends, yo! Plus they need to see Zoe before she is a teenager, because that is how she is growing these days!

Favorite Moment: The doctor telling me that Zoe is perfect at her one month check up on Tuesday!!!Β I already knew that, but nice to have medical confirmation. wink winkΒ 

You guys, this smile. I can’t handle how she melts my heart with this smile!!! She already knows how to turn on the charm. Chris and I are in serious trouble!

She is 9.2 pounds and 21 inches long. When I told that to my sister, she laughed. Both her sons were born larger than that and here Z is at five weeks.

Favorite Product: My trusty Body Shop Vitamin E moisturizer is the only thing that is giving my dry dry dry skin any relief this winter. I order at least 2 tubs of this every year during one of their 40-50% off sales. Never pay full price for their stuff, they always run sales.

Favorite Lust: I need to get some new shoes before I start working out again. Mine were killing me and are super worn out. What are you favorites?? I sort of get overwhelmed when I look. I am liking the way these look

Favorite Funnies:

Glad I finally understand how men feel….

Linking up with Amanda, I will be catching up on blog reading, staring at Zoe, and hopefully making more headway in the spare room. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!!

    Stop it with that smile! So freakin cute. Also, it seems like everyone is sick nowadays – so yucky. Also, those ASICS!!!!. ASICS are my absolute favorite — I just bought a new pair with some birthday money, and I’m obsessed!

    GAH. She is too cute!
    The meme about the man cold is SO TRUE. I had a cold two weeks ago, toughed it out through work, kept the house in order, made dinner, attended social gatherings. (It was sinus related. I decided I wasn’t contagious.)
    K got a cold at this beginning of this week. Took two days off work. Has laid around every evening. Still whines throughout the day that he’s tired and doesn’t feel well. Hahahaha. Oh, men *eyeroll*

    Hey, at least you know it’s Friday πŸ™‚ I was the same way too where everything just kind of seemed to mesh into one and before you knew it Thursday felt like Tuesday etc. I’m so happy to hear you are getting some decent sleep. It makes such a difference, and look how happy she is! Precious girl! Have a great weekend. Beautifully Candid

    Asics gel kayanos are worth every penny.

    Hell yes to the Vitamin E body butter.

  • Reply Rebecca Jo January 13, 2017 at 2:02 pm

    Yep… she already knows how to work that grin.
    I weighed more than that at birth as well … 10.5 oz … I have always been an overachiever πŸ˜‰

    Of course she’s perfect! And so so so glad to hear that you’re feeling more like yourself and you and baby girl are both getting better sleep. It’s amazing how a little extra sleep will help you feel more human again. Sending lots of *hugs* and healthy vibes that illness will leave for your friends so they can meet lil’ miss <3

    I still can’t believe that smile! She’s so cute! I hope that you get those shoes sometime soon! I love the colors, and having worn out tennis shoes is the worst! I hope that you have a great weekend!

    Awww what a cute smile! My baby is also small, so don’t feel bad haha. I think she was 8 lbs 7 oz at her 1 month. My mom laughs because I was born at 11 lbs, and she’s just now getting that weight.

    I’ve never seen a newborn with such a huge smile! She’s adorable and so alert so young! I think she’s gonna be a heart breaker later on life with that pretty face and smile!

    okay that bow sleeper is SO cute where is it from! i need it. i’m so glad you’re feeling more human πŸ™‚ love those shoes, but ugh not the price! haha. i’m all about finding cheaper shoes to work out in πŸ˜‰ my favourite brands are nike (for working out) and brooks (for running which i know you have no intention of doing lol). i used to love asics but haven’t worn them in years.

    Omg, that is the perfect cheesy grin. So cute!!! Completely unrelated – what did Braxton Hicks feel like? I’m getting to the point where I’m overanalyzing and my belly will tighten up and I’m all, “Contraction or baby???” I know it’s not labor yet, but I’m still not even 100% sure I know what a contraction feels like.

  • Reply January 16, 2017 at 10:29 pm

    Such a cutie pie!! You’ve got me wanting those shoes. It’s dry skin city over here too, well not this week since it’s been so dang hot.

  • Reply Teh Megan January 17, 2017 at 9:49 am

    DUDE! No buying shoes on cuteness! Buy shoes on fit and needs (stability, cushion, etc)!
    That said, if they have different colors, cuteness-away.
    I always shun the pink shoes and go for the blues/greens, but only after I’ve picked a make/model, lol.

    I love the peach palette–there’s ar eview from last march if you need more details. I have the blush and the highlighting palette too. I like the blush the best of the latter two.
