Friday Favorites

This week has been a LONG one for us you guys! My hubby and I haven’t¬†spent time with each other basically all week. This is the last week of school for college students and next week is finals’ week so he’s had projects, tests, studying, presentations, etc. He works so hard for our family you guys! I seriously couldn’t have married a better guy! #lovehim Maybe a date sometime this weekend for us then. ūüėČ

one // A friend of mine has chickens and gave me some of her farm fresh eggs in exchange for homemade bread. Definitely a win-win! I love cooking with farm fresh eggs! Look at that light blue one! So pretty. And Lilly loves her chickens! Every time we go over she gets so excited. “The chickens. Hey chickens! *blows kiss* I kiss the chickens.” It’s adorable!

two // I read this article on¬†how to wear an oversized sweater without looking oversized. Great piece! I know that’s something I struggle with so it was helpful to read her how to article. Plus that red hair!¬†It’s downright gorgeous!

three // OMGoodness! So everyone knows what selfies are, right? But belfies? Oh my gosh you guys! Butt selfies are becoming a thing. Who would have ever thought?! I couldn’t help but laugh while reading the article and thinking, “You can’t be serious!”

four // Today is National Hoagie Day!!! I love sandwiches you guys! Some people love soup, others love salads, some people like pasta. (Though I do love salads too!) Sandwiches are a fave of mine. One of my favorite places to eat (besides Panera of course) is McAlister’s. It makes for a cheap date too. ūüėČ And even though it’s not exactly a hoagie, I’ll take any excuse to get get a sandwich. And then, of course, there’s my toddler eating pizza in the background. Haha!

five // Sorry I missed you guys yesterday, but I was doing some spring cleaning.¬†I went through all of our closets and purged a bunch of stuff. That is one of my favorite things to do. Find stuff that we don’t use and get rid of it! Lilly is outgrowing her 2T clothes so I went through those (I didn’t cry this time!), I had some clothes I never or rarely wear, and I got a few sewing projects done yesterday too. I finally sewed up my husbands jeans and sewed a button back on his shorts. FINALLY. I think they’ve been sitting on my sewing desk for like a month. Lol. #slacker

Fitness Routine

Do you even lift bro? Haha! I¬†used to run 2 – 6 miles a day, do 300 reps of abs (no joke!), and do 30+ man push ups in 2 minutes before I got pregnant with Lilly. My fitness fell off the map and hasn’t come back on. Until now.

I decided to jump back on the workout bandwagon and create a fitness routine that works for me. It needed to be realistic and manageable. I can’t go from a couch potato to a marathon runner in a week or workout at a gym for 4 hours every day. Neither of those would work.

So I’ve been doing this full body workout¬†everyday that I think is great for beginner’s. It’s not too hard, is only 30 minutes, and really gets your body moving (and muscles burning!). But be warned – you will definitely feel it the next day!

I’ve also started running on Tuesdays and Thursdays with our jogging stroller. (Thanks Mom and Dad!) It hasn’t got much use yet, but I will definitely post a review on¬†it once I have more miles on it and let you guys know if it’s worth the buy. But so far it’s good and reviews on it are awesome. I even put it together myself. Yep, me. Not the husband – me. Super proud about it! ūüėČ

And¬†the biggest thing for me is keeping track of how much water I’ve been drinking. Yikes! I’m so bad at that sometimes you guys. But my water bottle¬†is very helpful! It has a ring on it that helps you keep track. So good for me! It even comes in a bunch of different colors so everyone can have their own. I personally have the pink one but I kind of like the green one too.

If we were having coffee…

one // This¬†classic cookie recipe¬†is one of my favorites.¬†They’re sooooo good! And you can also make it into¬†bars. I’ve never made them into bars but I bet they’re just as good as the cookies. And less messy, way faster, and easier! Also less dishes. What do you think – cookies or bars?

two // I’m super excited to try this¬†natural skincare line. The reviews are AMAZING and I’m really hoping it works for me! I don’t have terrible skin but I do have big pores (Thanks Dad.) and would love to have smoother skin. Me and every other woman, right? Ha!

three // I made this cucumber salad this weekend. Twice. Yep, so good that I made it two times. Easy, delicious, and it has feta cheese! I love feta you guys. So creamy and yummy and just plain good! AND I think it’s a salad that my family will actually eat. Yes, even my toddler!!! Well maybe not the feta but yes to everything else in it. ūüėČ

four // Speaking of food, I need to make this awesome slow cooker recipe again. The sauce is mouth-watering and I think it would be good in any stir fry dish. And HELLO! It’s a slow cooker recipe and all slow cooker recipes are welcome in our house. Less dishes, less time in the kitchen, more time with family. Um yes! Yes please!

five // These DIY mugs are gorgeous! Absolutely gorgeous! I really want to make some! I might give it a go this weekend. What color would you choose? I’m thinking about a purple and a green.

My Hair Care

Oh. My. Gosh. You guys, I have to tell you about my new hair care routine.

I used to use whatever shampoo or conditioner. No specific brand, price, scent. Just whatever. Sometimes I didn’t even use conditioner. Or even shampoo! I’d use soap sometimes. Yikes! Some of you hair girls are cringing right now. Using soap?! Not using conditioner?! What is wrong with you lady?! I know, I know. Both of those are bad.

So I finally decided to give my hair some TLC and buy some organic shampoo and conditioner this past Christmas.

shamp

First of all, better ingredients that I know are WAY better for my hair. This shampoo makes my hair feel so clean without any weird ingredients in it. And no scent. Sure, wildflower blossom or orange citrus are nice scents. But if it means weird ingredients, then no thanks!

cond

Second, my hair is SO soft thanks¬†to this amazing¬†conditioner!¬†It’s thick, buttery, and moisturizing. Soft hair and less dead ends mean my hair is getting the moisture it needs and deserves. It’s called a deep conditioning treatment for a reason!

comb

Third, this¬†wooden comb¬†is not only pretty but also has thick spines to handle hair. I’m aware it says “Rocky Mountain Barber Co.” and that is is directed towards men. Yeah, yeah, I hear ya. But men’s stuff seems to last longer than women’s, don’t you agree?! Plus I love wooden combs!

Am I all super crunchy in this post right now? With my organic shampoo, conditioner, and wooden comb? Why yes. Yes, I am. But you better believe it is SO worth it.
