Friday Favorites

Trying to get back into the groove of blogging after all of the holidays and an insane few weeks at work. I think I’ll start slow with a Friday Favorites! These are five things I’m loving / totally make me smile.

1. My hardworking husband finally got a new truck. He has been driving the same truck for like ever and with 250,000 miles rolling up soon, he finally bit the bullet and traded it in on a 2016 Dodge 2500. It has more towing capabilities than his old truck, which will make trips with the RZR easier, and it also has a massive back seat and Whitlee’s car seat fits amazingly. Add in heated seats, heated steering wheel, and remote start and this momma is jealous on all these cold (for Texas) winter mornings.


2. Whitlee’s new tricks .. she’s climbing on everything, hiding from us, and overall just being adorable. Plus this new thing where she puts her head on the floor and looks through her legs. Old wives tale says “they’re looking for another baby.” Like, it’s their way of letting mom and dad know they’re ready for a sibling. Seriously, Google it. (no, not pregnant)



3. Maskcara IIID foundation. I’ve only gotten to use it once so far, but I love the ease of highlighting and contouring and it feels like I’m actually not wearing makeup. I’m anxious to see what it would look like over my normal foundation for a more heavy makeup situation (pictures, special events). But seriously, so far I love it. You should check out her blog for amazing before and after pictures since I don’t have one to show you personally yet.

4. I’m putting Nolan on daddy duty tomorrow while I go get one of my two massages that I got for Christmas. Hallelujah!

5. And on that note, I’m actually loving my sore muscles right now. I was working out regularly throughout November and into December, but my membership at my old gym was up mid December. I wanted to join a different gym in our town and it’s so much better. The old one kind of smelled weird, had some sketchy people, and was kind of creepy at night. I’m back on a schedule and feeling good knowing that sore muscles = progress!

Happy Friday, ya’ll!

1. Baby teeth! Whitlee finally had a tooth break through overnight Monday (found Tuesday) and then a second broke through on Wednesday. Glad they broke the skin finally, hopefully that will give her a little teething relief.

2. Schlitterbahn –  I’ve mentioned my best friend Kaitlin on here a few times. Today is her birthday (Happy Birthday KK!), and tomorrow she, her husband, my husband, and I are headed to Galveston for the day to go to Schlitterbahn. I’m so looking forward to it.. but also a little nervous about being away from Whitlee for longer than my normal work day.

3. Baby Rashguards – I had my eye on few baby swimsuits that are swimsuit bottoms and rashguard tops like this one because when we go to Alabama later this summer, Whitlee will be in the sun a lot and I want to make sure we’re protected as much as possible. Well all of the ones I really wanted were like $30ish and I just had a hard time swallowing that, seeing as how she’ll fit it for such a small amount of time. I happened to walk by Gymboree in the mall recently and all of their swimsuits were on clearance from about $30 to $7! Score! I got this flamingo one for Whitlee and I can’t wait to see her in it!


4. Mason Jar Tumbler – I got this one at my local Wal-Mart to keep at work and drinking from a fun cup always helps me get more water in. Plus it’s double walled so it doesn’t sweat all over my desk.


5.       Little Debbie Frosted Fudge Cakes – my freaking w e a k n e s s right now.
