Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! Closing out week 9 of quarantine. It is so crazy to me that is seems like we have been doing this forever. But also how quickly the weeks are flying by. We are in the middle of may already!!!!

Huge shout out to all of those who have had to birthday during the time. Chris’s birthday was yesterday, and I just felt so bad that we were stuck at home in just “another day” of our new normal. I tried to make it special by making a delicious keto peanut butter pie, and one of his favorite meals for dinner. USPS sucked and told me his package was going to be delivered on the 12th, and now it isn’t coming til the 16th. So annoying. And its only coming from Atlanta. 2 hours away.

That is homemade vanilla whipped cream on top!

Zoe made him a card and decided to wear her “party” dress for the occasion. She also wanted to go outside and snap photos. I think we have a future fashion blogger on our hands.

It has been getting significantly hotter here in the last week. It was 82 with high humidity yesterday, and both Zoe and I decided to come in early from our morning play. Summer is that you? I cant complain, we really did have a good run the last 9 weeks.

Favorite Find: A few weeks ago, I had ordered mouthwash as part of my Shipt order. My Shipt shopper ended up being a dental hygienist and she jokingly texted me a picture of floss and said, “Don’t forget the floss.” And I said, oh yeah…grab me one! Thanks! And she got me her favorite, the Hello Charcoal. I had a few things from this brand recently, and I have to say, I LOVE this floss!!!! It reminds me of the old gritty Listerine one that I cant find anymore. It just gets everything and makes flossing more fun. I know it sounds silly, but try it! Might renew your want to floss. Also, the packaging is fun.

I also decided to upgrade the basket we have in our hearth room for all of Zoe’s toys. I needed something that would look nice in the space, and hold a lot! This basket is so awesome! We have plenty of room to hold more than what we currently keep in that room, and it is all neatly piled into this HUGE basket. You can tell just by the feel that it is made really nice.

I was watching a YouTube video a few weeks ago on skincare, and the person mentioned Curology. I went to the site and took the quiz and decided to order the product to try. You can pay just shipping and get your first bottle for free if you sign up, which I thought was pretty cool. What did I have to lose? I think I am two weeks down with using it daily? Time is all relative these days. Anyways, I haven’t had any adverse effects from it so far. It is a pretty cool concept. You tell your concerns, answer some questions about your skin, and send close up photos. A dermatologist looks over everything and sends you your prescription. They check in with you after some time to see how it is working, and will adjust dosage accordingly. You can do a monthly or every two month subscription. Anyone else use this service? So far I think I like it. I will check in again after some more time has gone by to let you know if I am seeing a difference.

A side note, I had started taking Biotin the week before, and that caused my face to break out. Why does my body hate Biotin??? I need it for my hair!!! Does anyone else have that issue? I have VitaFive send me a package of Biotin and Elderberry gummies to try. I really love their packaging, as they are trying to reduce plastic waste and I wish more companies would move towards this. The vitamins tasted great, and I love the elderberry ones. I will definitely try other products from them. Every “beauty” vitamin I have tried has broken me out, so I know it is me, not them. They have some Melatonin ones if sleep is your thing. I might try their overall health one next.

    I want that pie!!!! I have been on the fence with Curology – I have seen some really good things about it, and really want to find a way to reduce all this redness on my face, since not wearing makeup everyday hasn’t seemed to help it. Guy totally looks like Ursula.

    Too funny, I saw that hoop skirt meme and I was gonna share on Instagram today. I always love your Memes! I saw that peanut butter pie on your stories and it looks so good! So sorry about the birthday, tell your man he’s just getting better! I love what Zoe wanted to wear for daddy! Like I said I Instagram at it it’s one of my favorite looks on her ever! Have a beautiful weekend girlfriend.

    You TOTALLY have a fashion blogger on your hands.

    I’ve been meaning to text and ask what you think about Curology! I’m glad you told me about it. Love Zoe’s poses! I so wish we had Shipt here.

    We had an earthquake this morning so that meme is perfect for me right now. Ha. I love Zoe’s dress. It is sooo adorable. I can’t believe we are almost at week 10 of this quarantine stuff. Ugh. Love that new toy basket. Have a great weekend!

    Definite fashion blogger on your hands. I started using the Mary Ruth organics probiotic beauty vitamin and I think there is biotin in it but a little amount. My nails have never been stronger and my hair I swear is shinier. May be worth checking that one out?

    My birthday is at the end of the month, and I know it’ll be a strange one. It sounds like you made your husband’s day nice though! We all do what we can! Love Zoe’s party dress, and she’s so cute with all of her poses. Definitely a future fashion blogger!

    It sounds like you two made the day really special for him! That peanut butter pie looks amazing! I bet he loved it. My birthday was a couple of weeks ago. It was weird but really nice at the same time.

    The pictures of Zoe are too sweet!

    The 2020 memes are on point.

    I’ve stopped all fancy skincare lol. I’ve noticed that regular Cetaphil is doing the job right now.

    Kyle’s bday was March 12th. We snuck in one final big family dinner before everything locked up tight… That pie looks amazing, though! And Zoe is the cutest! Did you give her a haircut?? It looks adorable!

    I’m going to have to try the charcoal floss. That sounds great! And the Guy Fieri meme is hilarious. We watch a ton of his shows and he really is a sweet man, but his style is SO odd! Lol.

    That pie looks amazing! Sorry about the shipping mishap, that’s been happening with almost all of our orders lately. Some take a few days, and others take weeks. Sending lots of hug for you and the birthday boy.

    That pie looks SO yummy! And yep I definitely think Zoe has the fashion bug. She’s such a cute little fashionista!
