Friday Favorites

I had some really cute pictures of Mac and Zoe and some food that I wanted to share but I cant get my pictures to go from my phone to my computer for some reason today so they may have to wait until Monday! I never said technology and I were besties.

Favorite Moments:

–My sister watched Zoe for me Monday while I went to the office. She texted me a few pictures throughout the day and when I came home, all the bottles were washed, the kitchen was cleaned, the trash had been taken out, all of Zoe’s laundry was washed and put away and her room was clean. The diapers and wipes were completely stocked on the changing table and Zoe had a bath and was in her jammies. How awesome is my sister???? When I laid down that evening completely relaxed I thought to myself, this must be what it feels like to come home to me every day. LOL.

–Speaking of Monday, lunch with my co-workers was awesome. We caught up and I made the comment to them that I really just appreciated being able to eat an entire meal without it being cold or having to stop half way through. The little things, you know?

–We got a new sofa!!!! Chris found a really good deal yesterday and we decided to pull the trigger! I am not sold on our layout right now, so I haven’t taken any pictures yet but it is nice!!! Real leather and power recliners. It even has a built in USB charger! This was much needed!

Favorite Find: We needed some new shower gel a few weeks ago and I have gotten away from purchasing ones from Bath and Body Works. They smell amazing but they are full of chemicals and really do nothing for my skin. I found this Soap and Glory one at Target and not only does it smell amazing…but it has a built in moisturizer in it! Score!!!! The best thing? It is only $7.99 and I don’t have to buy a million at once to feel like I got my money worth! Oh and added bonus that it has a pump!

Favorite Lust: I puffy heart these blush shoes!

And these Dolce Vita ones too

Basically give me all the blush pink things!

Favorite Funnies: 

Needing to mentally prepare yourself to be around people. #Introvertproblems:

When you haven't worn makeup in a week and you put mascara on and you're like ... move over Beyonce. Mama's back.:

How Mac is when I am trying to work…

how about now? you see me now?:

Apple, every time they come out with a new phone…

Life goals…

I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!!! Linking up with Amanda.

    Congrats on the new couch! It sounds fancy! That is so sweet what your sister did for you. I can imagine how nice that was–to come home to you-haha, but so true!! Love the blush shoes. I puffy heart them, too!

    What it feels like to live with me.. HAHHHA I love it and completely understand. That’s how I feel when Teh Running Bestie visits or I go to visit her. We just take care of shit for each other and it’s glorious. It’s why we were the perfect roomies.

    Do you have dropbox? Because dropbox is magical. I emailed you the link since I can’t get to the website on my current network (work subletting problems). I essentially upload photos from my phone to dropbox and then any computer you have dropbox installed on automatically syncs. Or you can just go to the dropbox website and download your stuff from a browser. It’s AAHHHMAZING. I share folders with Teh German and Teh Running Bestie and Teh Sister and just so many people because it’s more convenient than sending a million text messages.

    Can your sister come to my house? Lol! I laughed at your comment about that’s what it must be like coming home to you – same, girl. I need to check out that body wash! I’ve seen the brand at Ulta but never bought anything. We desperately need new couches but have yet to pull the trigger. Your new one sounds amazing! Happy Friday!

    That’s my life goal as well! lol. Your sister is so sweet! Perfect timing on the body wash! Mine is about to run out so I’ll definitely go to Target to check that one out. Happy Friday!

    I know what you mean about the hot food. Now, I tend to eat holding Ellie in my lap if I need to, but it took a while before I could even do that. I feel the same way about Bath & Body works stuff. They have lots of nice scents, but the quality never feels great to me. That soap & glory one sounds great. Slept too long HA.. was that once me? Now I feel great if I get 3 hours in a row. We are in the midst of sleep issues. Greg has been cooking dinner for me before I get home from work and also bathes Ellie and everything. It’s totally amazing.

    This must be what it is like coming home to me! HAHAHAHAHAH. Loved that. What a sweet sister — such a good aunt!! Yay for new couches, and I saw those products at Target, so I need to get on those if you like them so much! Ugh, and I love Kevin Spacey — my favorite!

    Who knew eating a hot meal were #goals 😉 … #mommylife
    I need some new bath soap so I’m going to keep my eyes out for that stuff.

  • Reply Heather February 24, 2017 at 10:26 am

    WOW that sounds like an awesome new couch! And SO nice of your sister – that must have felt amazing! So sweet of her!!!

  • Reply Sierra February 24, 2017 at 11:11 am

    Happy Friday! Your sister sounds amazing, can she come to my house 😉 A hot meal is a rarity and makes all the difference. That sofa sounds amazing! I’d probably fall asleep the first 15 minutes of sitting on it lol. Have a great weekend! Beautifully Candid

    Those heels are so pretty and the perfect heel height! I always hear good things about the s&g line but have never tried it– now I’m tempted! Isn’t it the best when products come with a pump? Love that your sister went above and beyond while she was watching Zoe, I’m sure that was the best thing to come home to at the end of the day.

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph February 24, 2017 at 11:40 am

    So nice of your sister! She’s a good aunt.

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders February 24, 2017 at 12:24 pm

    Your sister is so awesome! That’s the one thing my friend says about having a newborn/baby, that she always feels like she’s eating her meals cold. She’ll start making her meal and then Ellie will start fussing so she goes to her and before she knows it, her food is cold. I hope that you have a great weekend and get to eat some more hot meals!

    I use that body wash! It’s the best! And I saw that move over beyonce one earlier this week and laughed so hard because it’s SO TRUE

  • Reply Audrey February 27, 2017 at 11:34 am

    The meme about running home and changing my mind is perfection 🙂
    Your sister is too sweet! What a nice surprise for you! (I always wonder what would happen if I came home and everything I did each week was already done……. ha.)

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista February 27, 2017 at 1:24 pm

    Those blush shoes – GORGEOUS! And your sister wins all the prizes, that must have been so nice to come home to. Cheers to a fabulous week gurlie <3

    Your sister sounds awesome!! So sweet of her! And hooray for a new couch!

    yay new sofa!! built in USB charger?! that’s crazy awesome. we are hoping to get a new sofa/sectional (with recliners, it’s ugly as fuck but comfy as fuck) but waiting to buy a house because don’t want to buy a sofa in case it doesn’t fit/work.
