Weekend Shenanigans

I am not quite sure how we got to Monday morning already, but here we are. It has been super rainy and gross here the last few days, and it doesn’t look like it is going to change anytime soon. I love rainy weather when I can stay home and cuddle under blankets and watch mindless TV all day. Not quite the same sentiment when you have to drive to work, and figure out how to balance an umbrella, a 20 pound kid and all their stuff that goes back and forth to daycare.

This weekend we spent a lot of time with Chris’s family. On Saturday, we went over to his parent’s house for Chris to help his dad with some things. Sunday morning, Zoe and I met up with my sister and nephew for some grocery shopping at Target. My oldest nephew turned 13 yesterday!!! So crazy! I didn’t get to see him, but I sent his present home with my sister. After we got back and Zoe napped, we headed over to Chris’s sister’s house for his grandmother’s 90th birthday party. Zoe got to meet some family she hasn’t seen before and spent lots of time playing with her cousin too.

We also attempted selfies this weekend, with little success. No make up for me, an a blurry Zoe who can’t sit still.

We did eat some delicious things this weekend! Chris ordered us Fox’s Pizza on Saturday night when we were on our way home from his parent’s house. We always order one pineapple and ham pizza and one pepperoni. Yum!

I also made homemade lasagna last night for dinner for our Valentine’s Day tradition. We are celebrating our 8th one this year!

I finished reading another book on Saturday, and Kathy was kind enough to send me two products to try out. Spoiler alert, I am loving both so far!

Have you heard of The Ordinary? Surely you have. They have a SUPER affordable skin care line that you can order straight from their site, and Sephora now carries it as well. Because it is so effective and affordable, it is sold out often, so keep checking back on the items you want! Kathy suggested that I email them and write out all my concerns and allow them to suggest my regimen. It took them a few days, but they emailed me back an AM and PM routine. The HA that Kathy sent was part of it. If you want to start with just one, I would get The Buffet. It has many ingredients in it that address a wide range of concerns. They suggested I use it AM and PM. I’ll check back in a few weeks and let you know my thoughts after using them more. So far the HA stuff is great. Between that and my exfoliate that I shared last week, my skin has been so soft and smooth! Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant, 4.2 Ounce

Linking up with Biana. I hope you all have a great week!

    That lasagna looks amazing. I need to attempt one myself! I ordered an Ordinary product but I didn’t know they would help with a routine! I need to do that! Can’t wait to hear what you think of everything.

    I love that they sent you a regimen.

    I feel like eating a pan of brownies on Wednesday and calling it a day.

    Yummy goodness here! I am going to order The Buffet. I love anything with hyaluronic acid in it! Despite the rain (ours was all snow) , looks like you had a sweet, shiny weekend!

    I haven’t had lasagna in so long! It’s cold this week so it sounds extra delicious right now!

    This weather is literally killing me because it’s so depressing! And it’s the worst transporting kids to and from daycare in it too! It sounds like y’all had a great weekend with lots of family time! Zoe is seriously so cute!

    It was super rainy here all weekend too and I tried to just focus on being happy it wasn’t snow! It sounds like you guys had such a good weekend with Chris’ family & I’m sure it’s so fun for Zoe to get to meet new family members! I love how blurry she is in the selfies you guys took- can totally tell she doesn’t want to sit still! I’ve been so curious about The Ordinary- I keep hearing about it and it sounds like an awesome brand & that’s so cool that they’ll give you a personalized skincare routine over email!

    So cool that Kathy AND The Ordinary helped you out!! That stuff sounds great!

    I love the selfies with Zoe! They kind of record where you’re at in life right now, lol!

    My oldest niece is turning 13 this year and I’m with you – not sure where the time goes!! Love the pizza you guys had this weekend – I really wanted pizza for dinner yesterday but was vetoed…maybe this week! xo, Biana

    Selfies with kids are next to impossible! They still came out cute, though!

    I love lasagna- yummm I need To make some! Did you email Honest directly or Sephora? I would to do that before purchasing since they have quite a bit of products. Have a good week girlfriend!

    Yum… your lasagna looks delicious! Sounds like you got lots of family time in this weekend so I’m sure pretty Zoe got lots of attention and snuggles! Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

    Those pacifiers with the stuffed animals hanging off of them crack me up. So cute! 🙂

  • Reply Sierra February 15, 2018 at 1:09 pm

    I am the same way when it comes to the rain. If I’m at home, have it, otherwise no thanks. Selfies are so hard with kids and you look so pretty without any makeup. I hope your week is treating you well! Sierra~Beautifully Candid

    How was your lasagna? I wish I had felt better to do something like that. I love the selfie attempts!!!
