Friday Favorites

Favorite Moments:Unexpectedly working from home Monday and Tuesday was nice. I didn’t have to drop my baby off and have my heart break as she cries when I hand her over to one of her teachers and sneak out the door while they distract her. Mommin’ is hard during the week, and I certainly enjoyed the extra time and snuggles while still getting all my work done. And my sister stopped by for a few minutes with the boys so that she could see Zoe and it was great getting to see all of them for a little bit.

Sometimes you have to do things that are a little out of your comfort zone. I have been pushing myself hard this week to do just that. I worked on a few things that make me nervous, in a good way. I reached out to someone I had met before, but never really hung out with, and asked her to lunch. I ran into her over the summer while shopping and we said that we should grab lunch one day. You know how you always say you should meet up sometime but as you are saying it you know it is a lie? Well I am not saying that to say it anymore. I had a lovely time and we enjoyed delicious food and I hope to make it a regular thing with her. As busy adults, it is so easy to just keep living in your bubble and never venturing out. But how are you supposed to grow? How are you supposed to build your tribe?

Favorite Delivery: A few weeks ago while in Nordstrom Rack, I had tried on a pair of shoes that were super cute but I didn’t get them. I couldn’t stop thinking about them after I left and realized how many outfits they would go with. I looked online and found them, and they went even cheaper!!!! You guys, these are $15 right now!!!! I got them this week and they fit perfect! I wore them to work yesterday and had no problems all day. Do yourself a favor and grab a pair before they are gone.

Favorite Lesson: Just because it is the middle of the week, doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to do something special. Like wear a tutu because it’s Tuesday. Never save all your good stuff for the weekend.

Favorite Recipe: How good does this end of summer salad look????

Fresh and Healthy! Corn, Tomato, and Avocado Quinoa Salad - so so delicious!!!

Favorite Funnies:

spreading it!!!

    Glad that you had two days to work home. My ideal situation would be to work from home a couple days a week actually. Zoe is adorable – love her dress.

    LOL at the wine ones, they speak to me (in champagne or beer, not wine, but the sentiment still works!)

    100% yes to the tutu! so cute. when kayla wants to wear something fancy (or weird), as long as it’s weather-appropriate, i dont care. when she was 2, she wanted to wear a red plastic bucket on her head; it was the perfect size for her head so i let her. she wore it ALL DAY and EVERYWHERE lol. people would ask why she was wearing a bucket on her head and I said “why not? she thinks it’s fun; it makes her happy”. You go, Zoe – wear your tutu!!

    Happy Friday! I’m glad you got to stay at home with her a few extra days. Momming is so tough. I love that you reached out and got to go out to lunch. Any day is a great day to wear a tutu. Zoe looks so cute! I hope you have a great weekend. Beautifully Candid

    Those shoes are amazing, and you know I love anything with avocado in it. Zoe in her tutu is probably the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. She’s so sweet! Glad you got to spend a little extra time with her this week –errr, last week. 🙂
