Friday Favorites

Favorite Moments: Laura and I hit up Babalu on Tuesday for lunch. Usually I am lured by their enchilada of the day or their Taco Truesday deals, but I decided that I would go back to an old favorite…the Satay Chicken. It did not disappoint! And of course we had guac. That should be a given! Lunch with Laura is pretty much the highlight of every work week.

Zoe snuggles!!!! My little angel hasn’t been feeling 100% this week. In fact, she caught a virus on top of the one that she was already trying to fight. Dirty daycare baby strikes again!!! I decided to keep her home Wednesday and took her to the doctor to make sure she didn’t have an ear infection or anything. She was all kinds of snuggly that day and preferred sleeping on me. Here I am with my “you jealous bro” face and our movie during nap time. So glad to see Rugrats on Netflix!

Zoe’s school had Iron Bowl themed pictures on Tuesday. We dressed Zoe in her Alabama best, but she decided she didn’t want to partake in the pictures and threw a fit. The photographer gave  up on  her and returned my check. I have a  happy baby, don’t know what the girl did to upset her but it must have been bad! So I had to at least get one picture with her outfit/// Zoe loves her yogurt melts during snack time///apparently this is how we watch TV now, with things on our head

And here are Zoe’s thoughts on real food right now. She eats her baby purees like a champ, but isn’t feeling anything else.

Favorite Recipe: How amazing does this Mexican Street Corn Soup look?? Tis the season!

Favorite Purchase: I was running low on foundation, so I placed an order with Sephora. I decided to try the new Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation after watching about 20 reviews on YouTube. I am only on my second day of it, but I have to say…I am impressed so far!! I chose the shade “Snow” and it is a perfect match for my pale skin, without having any weird yellow undertones. My skin is very neutral and most stuff oxidizes yellow on me. The coverage is medium to full and it looked so pretty after applying it with my Real Techniques beauty blender.

I also cashed in some Shopkicks for a gift card so I could try out Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon perfume. I ordered the roller ball before committing to the full size bottle. I am LOVING it!!! I smelled it several weeks ago and was impressed, and then Steph recommended it recently and that sealed the deal.

    I have a recipe like that soup pinned, or maybe that recipe?, & I was just looking at it the other day! It looks so good! I love Zoe’s face when trying real food haha.

    Okay now I have to try that foundation! Also I wear that perfume every day and love it. Anything with bourbon in it is okay by me. Poor Zoe! That doesn’t sound like her at all to throw a fit – wonder if she was still feeling bad? She looks SO CUTE in her little cheer costume! Hope she’s feeling better today. Have a great weekend!

    That’s such a bummer that Zoe missed out on the Iron Bowl pictures, especially since her outfit is so adorable! Hopefully it’ll be better next year! And I’m sorry that she was feeling sick this week, but I know that you loved getting to soak up all of those baby cuddles! I hope you’re having an amazing Friday and have a great weekend!

    Oh poor baby. Hope she feels better soon. Ugh daycare – necessary evil, but man my niece and nephew were sick weekly it seems.

    Anyway, soup looks delish!!

    So glad you’re also loving the perfume, it’s my absolute favorite! I have it on today (of course) and I keep sniffing myself haha

  • Reply laura October 27, 2017 at 9:52 am

    Okay, I see so many people saying good things about that perfume, so I’m probably going to go and buy it. Sorry you didn’t get any pictures of her in her little cheer outfit, but she does look adorable anyway! Lunch was awesome as usual! And I think it’s good parenting if your kid knows lil wayne, but what do I know?

    That 3 AM meme is me, every day. 😛 That food looks so yummy! I’m glad you have a lunch date to look forward to every week! I hope that Zoe feels better soon! It’s that time of the week where colds are just flying around. And allergies too. Have a great weekend! XO – Alexandra

    I love that you’re able to get a fun lunch date in each week. I’m sorry to hear Zoe wasn’t feeling. Those daycare germs are hard to combat. I bet those snuggles were amazing though and I used to love Rugrats!!! I hope you have a great weekend! Sierra ~ Beautifully Candid

  • Reply Amie October 27, 2017 at 12:10 pm

    When Bowen was around 10 months we got decent pictures at daycare….then however many months later it was hideous!! haha At almost two they have pictures again coming up so I am anxious to see how this round goes! I feel like he won’t cooperate.

  • Reply Kelly @ Noodle to the Rescue October 27, 2017 at 12:38 pm

    Too bad the Iron Bowl photo didn’t turn out! Zoe looks pretty cute in her outfit! It’s nice that the photographer returned your money though. My kids are notoriously bad photo-takers and I have hesitated to put down money for preschool photos when who knows what grimaces I’ll get back!

  • Reply SMD October 27, 2017 at 1:17 pm

    My coffee needs a coffee today.

    I have two Elizabeth & James roller balls!

    Your funnies are so funny today! I am slightly hungover so the coffee one applies. That soup is pinned! Sorry Zoe was not feeling well, hope the snuggles made her better. Have a great weekend!

  • Reply Carly October 27, 2017 at 2:22 pm

    Zoe looks so cute in her cheerleading outfit, maybe she wasn’t feeling well when they were trying to take the pictures? So nice they refunded you though and didn’t try and force them! That soup sounds soo good and perfect for a day like today when it’s nice and chilly outside. Yay for a new foundation- it’s the best when you find one that matches you well and works well on the skin!

  • Reply StephTheBookworm October 27, 2017 at 3:45 pm

    I’m sure you don’t know what you’re talking about but please continue. HAHAHA that is literally me EVERY DAMN DAY when patrons are talking to me.
