Friday Favorites

We had quite the scare yesterday in Birmingham! Figures, the one day I was in the office this week the tornado sirens started going off right around the time I got a call from my MIL telling me that she was on top of the weather and was getting ready to take Zoe to the basement. The sky looked SUPER sketchy and there were so many clouds that looked like there was rotation. Tropical Storm Cindy can go ahead and get the hell away from here anytime now!!! We are supposed to have a threat of tornadoes again today from about noon til 8pm. I have my helmet, supplies and Zoe’s car seat in the basement so we are ready at anytime.

Anyways, I cant focus on that right now or I will go insane! The good news is that it is Friday!!! Our beach trip is going to be here before we know it! I ordered some sunscreen, a beach tent, two quilted sheets for Zoe’s pack and play (supposed to help with the awful noises the mattress makes anytime she moves) and a few other necessities this morning. I still haven’t found a swimsuit or cover up for me. I have one swimsuit but we are going to be there for awhile so I need more than one. I tried on 15 the other day and walked away with nothing. Ugh. Swimsuit shopping is the worst, am I right?

Favorite Moments:

This week has been pretty low key, minus the whole storm thing. Besides work, it has been lots of playtime with this cutie!!!

Favorite Recipe: I enjoyed my three bean green salad this week, I think I want to try this next!

This Butter Bean Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Kalamata Olives, Feta, and…

Favorite Delivery: My Sephora package came and it was filled with lots of goodies!!! I am finally trying the IT CC Cream. I have only used it twice, but so far I am enjoying it. I ordered a special additions set that came with two deluxe samples of their eye cream and confidence in a cream. I also ordered the Buxom lip gloss in Kimberly. Love the light pink color for summer and it has the slightest hint of shimmer. I scooped up the Bobbi Brown cult favorites with some points I had saved up. They had a special for VIBs who ordered that day to receive Too Faced Hangover Primer and Better Than Sex deluxe sized samples. Then I got three free samples of perfume.

Favorite Blog Post: Steph’s post, The Here and Now, this week was such a great reminder to stop putting things off for later when this or that is better and treat yourself better now.

    Aw, thank you for the shout out! <3

    Just signed Caleb up for a swim class and now I need to find a bathing suit. Ugh, it's the worst! I found one that I think I'm going to try from Amazon.

    So agree with that meme about working but also not wanting to. Ha!!

    LOL at the Michael Phelps meme – that’s me almost every night in the kitchen! So scary to hear about the bad weather, but glad you guys are safe. And YAY for your upcoming beach trip! As for bathing suits, Target has BOGO 50% off all swimsuits right now and so many great options. Hope you find the perfect suit <3

    I thought about you guys this morning when I saw there were tornadoes in Alabama! Wasn’t sure how close you lived to the action but glad you’re all safe! Stay safe out there today, too! That salad looks amazing, too. I just bought a bunch of olives at the olive bar so I’m one step ahead! Have a great weekend!

    That storm sounds so scary, glad you guys were all okay, and hopefully it doesn’t get bad today! It looks like you got an awesome Sephora haul! I’m bummed I missed that promo because I used ordered the mini of that Too Faced primer to try out! The butter bean salad looks delicious– thank you for sharing!

    I think the rain is supposed to start back up again here this evening and pretty much all day tomorrow. I am sick of it but welcome the opportunity to stay in and get things done. And then watch lots of Netflix. Stay safe!! Do you really have a helmet?

    I never tire of the Michael Phelps memes

    Tis the season… tornado warnings are popping up everywhere. I’m the fool that is siting outside on my porch watching these storms & looking for funnel clouds. oops

    That sucks that y’all had to deal with so much because of TS Cindy! I honestly thought that it would hit Houston at least a little bit, but we just got some light rain and wind, which I guess is pretty lucky. Hooray for a beach trip coming up! I’m totally with you on the loathing for bathing suits, but when you’re there with Zoe at the beach, it’s not even going to matter what you’re wearing!

    Haha I am so the independent woman vs trophy wife.

  • Reply kathy @ more coffee, less talky June 23, 2017 at 3:27 pm

    independent trophy wife…THAT’S ME LOLOLOL! Im all “I’m an self-sufficient, working woman with a successful career!!” but then I’ll turn around and say “I DON’T WANNA WORK ANYMORE” hahahahaha!!

    LOL at the Michael Phelps meme — that’s totally me with the dishes. I also loved Steph’s post — it was so great! Zoe pictures are the best. Hope you guys stay safe today! 🙂

    Fingers crossed for no tornadoes!

    All those memes are 100% me. All the time.
    I thought of you when I heard about the storms rolling through! I’m glad your m.i.l. was on top of it! Hopefully you guys are safe and warm and dry today, too! I’m thinking about you!! (We’re getting rain and storms, but nothing like Cindy!)
    Happy Weekend!!

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! June 23, 2017 at 4:26 pm

    Oh that Phelps meme is WAY too true! And I’ll be thinking happy thoughts for you to get you through the storms!

    I was worried about you, hope the tornado threat has passed now. Your memes are better than anyone’s. Thanks for the Friday smiles. Have a wonderful, safe and storm free weekend!

    Hope you’re staying safe with all the tornadoes. I know how scary those can be. Keep us posted. Play dates with sweet cheeks makes things so much better or at least can take your mind off the worries. Love all the goodies you got in your Sephora haul. Have a great weekend lady!
