Happy Friday, Friends! It has been such a week you guys. Work got a little crazy, seeing all the pictures coming in from Gulf Shores after hurricane Sally came through is heartbreaking, and you know…normal pandemic things. We actually didn’t get as much rain as they were predicting for our area. Sally stayed south of us, and it only rained here Wednesday. Zoe was disappointed that her water puddle went away before she could play in it.
Favorite Surprise: My sister dropped by yesterday morning with brownies from Chick Fila and a unicorn bouncer for Zoe. Zoe literally carried this thing around everywhere yesterday, inside and out. She got it from Aldi. It is actually really cute, you are supposed to sit and bounce on it. It holds up to 220 pounds, so even I sat on it for a minute yesterday. Zoe is pretty serious about it, she even had to kiss it goodnight at bedtime last night, and was upset I told her that it couldn’t sleep in the bed with her.
Favorite Happy Mail: My FabFitFun box arrived this week! It was a nice little happy on a particularly busy work day. Zoe sat down with me when I opened it and was just as excited as I was. She kept saying, “Mommy do you like the present I got you??” Hahaha. Nice try, kid. Sign up here and get $10 off! (Full disclosure, I get a credit to my account to. I pay for the seasonal boxes myself, this is not sponsored in any way.) My box was worth $448.50 this time. I am most excited to try out the Foxybae Curling Wand and wear my SOIA & KYO Scarfigan. And OMG!!! The Daniel Stone Santal Noir room spray smells incredible!!!! It is a little steep full price, but man. So good! (I found a candle with the same scent here.) Zoe keeps asking me to spray it in my office while I am working.
How fun is this scarfigan though?? It feels like a blanket, and is the perfect thing to grab on a chilly night. I plan to keep it in my office for those days I get a chill. I really love the colors, and it is such a versatile piece. My other items I received were the Jenny Bird Austin Cuff, Anastasia Brow Gel, 8 Other Reasons Runway Clips, The Beauty Crop Glow Milk in Blind Date (super pretty liquid highlight!!!) and Voesh Pedicure In a Box in Pumpkin Spice, (there are 2 full sets of a soak, scrub, mask and butter.) If you got the box, what did you get?
Favorite Activity: Zoe and I collected some leaves this week to make a craft with. We talked about how they change colors and fall off the trees in the fall. I am hoping we can take a drive through the mountain during peek leaf season and maybe she can see it for herself past our backyard. We took her crayola paints and painted the leaves and used them as stencils on paper. It was quick and easy, and she had a lot of fun.
Favorite Purchase: A few weeks ago I was really fed up with my hair. Honestly, I still am. It is beyond need of cutting!!!!! I have super thin hair, and when it gets this long, it gets really stringy and dry on the ends. I have been a fan of WetBrush for years, but honestly….the little round ends of the bristles pull my hair and it hurts! And ends up breaking more than helping. When Tangle Teaser first came out, I got one! But it didn’t have a handle, and it sort of made my hand cramp using it. Well, now they make them with handles!!! You guys, you have to get this! It is so much easier to clean than the Wet Brush and it doesn’t pull or break my hair at all. Highly recommend for kids too!
Favorite Stretch : I don’t know about melting away anxiety, but this first yoga pose really helps my back and hips.
Oh my gosh, that box was incredible! I love the scarfigan as well! So pretty. And I love the leaf paintings! I hope you guys have a super sweet September weekend and some beautiful weather!
I love that little leaf craft! Sheff and I did something like that last year, but put googly eyes on the leaves. It was creepy, but fun! That ride on unicorn thing is awesome!! The destruction Sally left behind in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores is devastating – did you ever hear back about the condo? Hope you guys have a great weekend – our weather is supposed to be awesome!!!
That first pic of Zoe is a mood! You kind of have me wanting to get the FabFitFun box again… LOL.
You convinced me to get that brush for my girls. We love the Wet Brush but it is hard to clean. I want that scarfagan, but I have nowhere to wear it. Ha. I have heard such good things about the FabFitFun boxes, but never tried it. Have a great weekend!
Wall yoga is AMAZING for right before bed. I used to do that in Colorado all the time, after a long day of teaching ha ha ha.
We have that unicorn bouncer in “cow”. It’s been in the basement for months. A thoughtful Christmas gift but man…
I really should try and do some more yoga. Build up some strength, but also for stretching and relaxing and all that. Love the leaf craft you did with Zoe. Too cute. Love all the items in your FabFitFun box! And of course, I’m obsessed with all of your funnies. Avoiding cooties – that’s so true. And the math problem of 2020.
Your funnies are fantastic. Hope you guys had a fun weekend! A trip through the mountains to see the leaves would be AMAZING! I hope you guys get to do that. Glad the storm didn’t affect you too badly, but I know how disappointing it is to have the weather ruin your puddle jumping plans 😉 Love love love wall stretches!
Okay, I just turned 40 this weekend and even I am a little jealous at that unicorn bouncer lol
That scarf is amazing. I’m sure you’ll get a ton of usage out of that.
2020 memes just keep getting better and better. Thank you for sharing those!
