What we’re eating this week….
I didn’t take a picture but this week I actually made extra Italian sausage and ground beef with the intention of combining with pizza sauce and turkey pepperoni to eat over a baked potato which I saw in the Fed and Fit cookbook. Instead I baked a sweet potato, added the meat and then topped with my new favorite hot sauce. Like seriously y’all, I have been eating this stuff like crazy! Best part is it is not bad for you I found it cheapest at Sams and am certain I will always need to buy in bulk.
What I’m Reminiscing About….
Y’all, one of the projects I’ve had on my list forever was to have all of our VHS home videos sent off to be converted to digital media. After some research I decided to use Legacy Box. I found a great discount package on Groupon and a short time after purchasing I received my box with instructions as to how to process. I hope to do a full review once I receive our finished product but let me tell you, looking through some of the tapes briefly was so much fun. I mean look at my sweet Jordan! There were tons of videos of her basically just doing nothing but being her cute self. I will say, if the way I lost it when I heard my Meme laugh in the background is any indication, I believe there will be a watch party complete with kleenex when they make it back.
What I’m loving….
Signs of Spring! The grass is turning green, the trees are full of buds and there are wildflowers popping up in my yard. I’m sure there is a chance for one more front to cool us down but the temps have been amazing.
What we’ve been up to….
I’m super proud of myself for taking some time to be in the moment a little more which means I’ve already been to the movies twice, taken a trip to Dallas and to Las Vegas, read 6 books and managed to almost finish getting rid of the things we purged from Carly’s room. Being in the moment is awesome but also means I have didn’t do as great of a job taking pictures of our happenings. Hoping to do better in March! You can read our latest Queen’s Chronicles with a random roundup of happenings including our Las Vegas trip.
What I’m dreading….
What I’m working on….
Creating a list of projects for our house along with a timeline. Since moving in we have repainted pretty much the entire house. Sadly, this was done in stages so it seems every time I complete one space there is another which has not been painted in 8 years! I want to find a way to live in the house but also have a professional come in and paint the entire house and I know that is not simple. My biggest goal is to find the best arrangement to make our house the most livable.
What I’m excited about….
This special from Rodan + Fields! Have you been wanting to try Rodan + Fields skin care? What about Lash Boost? Well, right now through March 9th you can purchase together and receive a 20% discount. Obviously I’m a fan of R+F or I wouldn’t feel confident about selling the products. I have seen so much improvement in my skin with the Reverse line taking care to reduce the dark spots from years of too much sun. My teeny bitty lashes are also on top of the world and now my biggest problem is letting the mascara dry long enough so they do not touch my upper eye. I would love to help you improve your skin so please contact me if you are interested! You can find out your perfect solution by answering the questions here. As always there is a 60 day empty bottle guarantee!
My personal results: top picture no mascara, middle picture with mascara prior to Lash Boost and bottom picture taken after using a full treatment of 12 weeks.
What I’m watching/reading….
I watched Bridget Jones’ Baby on the plane ride home from Vegas and laughed so hard! The first will probably always be my favorite but you can’t help but love a movie with Patrick Dempsey in it!
What I’m listening to….
I have loved listening to iHeart radio while I’m at work and via Alexa at home. Around Valentines day I found this station which I have been loving. Oddly enough it plays lots of the music we dance to in my Cardio Jam class and it just makes me feel happy and prodcutive!
What I’m wearing….
I have worn the leopard booties I picked up on sale in Vegas at least twice a week! They are super comfy and of course as a neutral go with EVERYTHING. I’m still loving being able to layer my favorite jacket and vest over fun tops too. These are some of the outfits I wore over the past week. I’m not sure I can pick a favorite!!
Maybe even riskier in this date night look but I loved it!
What I’m doing this weekend….
Y’all, I’m going to my first ever blogger conference! I saw the Thrive Creative Conference was being held a short hour drive from me and after much debate (with myself) I decided to sign up. I come across as being somewhat of an extrovert but I can retreat somewhat quickly to my inner introvert when I am in a new situation with people I do not know. I tried so hard to invite some of my blogging friends to join me but had zero luck. Please pray I can be confident and open myself up to learn more about blogging but also to make some new friends.
What I’m looking forward to next month….
A little weekend away with these 3! When your besties and your moms are also besties it only makes sense to opt for some exploring instead of a birthday party. We will be heading off to celebrate Holly’s daughter, Holden’s birthday at the end of Spring Break and I cannot wait! Last March we celebrated in Fort Worth and then headed to the JW Marriott in San Antonio in August for Carly’s birthday.
What else is new….
Drumroll please……A new linkup you ALL need to add to your list! Holly, Katy and I have teamed up to host a link up each Wednesday! Royally Waiting will be a place you can come share and meet other bloggers along the way. We’ve created a few prompts to help get you on you started! Whether you choose a few, use them all or add some of your own, just join us each Wednesday.
Be sure and grab out graphic and link back to us. Oh, and since this is a new link-up, please share away!
