Happy Friday, friends! I hope you all have had a great week. We have been doing a lot of hanging out and not keeping very busy. It’s been sort of a lay low week for us, but that’s okay by me! Lately life has been slow and busy at the same time.
HIGLIGHTER ON FLEEK // I seriously cannot get enough of the Jaclyn Hill x Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop. It is quite possibly my favorite highlighter ever. I know there has been a ton of buzz about this product all over the internet, and trust me…. all of the hype is true! It is the most perfect champagne peachy-gold tone. I practically bathe myself in it.
A SUMMER OF CHANGES // This summer has brought some pretty big changes for our family. (No, I am not pregnant. My goodness! Haha.) It involves careers and the plan for the upcoming school year. This really deserves its own post, and I am going to share more soon. These changes are very exciting and different and I am very, very hopeful for what the future brings.
A TEMPORARY SAHM // Summer has been a time for me to get a little taste of what it’s like to be a stay at home mom. I have mad respect for the women who can do this every single day. It’s hard work and I feel like I kind of stink at it. Props to you, SAHMs! Not to mention Kennedy has straight up stopped napping. This has been rough on me. I loveddddddddd the girls’ afternoon nap time. Up until two weeks ago, they both would nap at the same time, no problems. All of a sudden Kennedy just started getting out of her bed and leaving her room. The day she learned how to use a doorknob was definitely not a joyous one. I personally feel that she’s tired and needs her nap, because she is super whiny in the evenings. I could be wrong, though. To compensate for my sanity, I have been making her do “quiet time.” She gets to watch a favorite movie or play on the iPad with her headphones on. Judge me all you want with using screen time with Hello Kitty headphones as quiet time, but a mama’s gotta do what a mama’s gotta do. I don’t even know if it’s worth fighting her over the nap and trying to make her nap. Anyone have any tips or wisdom? I’m dying over here.
THIS BOMB SALAD // Greg and I threw together this salad on Sunday and OMG WHY DON’T WE EAT THIS MORE? It was all chopped up and had a romaine mix, grilled chicken, bacon, avocado, blue cheese, cherry tomatoes, carrots, corn and cucumbers. It was so filling and not too terrible on the spectrum of healthy vs. non-healthy. Perfect for summer and definitely into the permanent rotation.
Oh, and SNAP ME! Add me at: mo-meg. I’ve been playing around with snapchat and I’m having a lot of fun. It’s waaaaaaaaay less pressure than Instagram to curate a beautiful feed of photos. I resisted creating an account for a long time, and I lurked for a while before I jumped in. BUT! It’s actually been really refreshing. It’s more of a “behind the scenes” look at lives It’s just me and my kids being silly. I hope and I pray that Snapchat never becomes like Instagram… that would kill me!
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
