Happy Friday! I haven’t posted a “Friday Favorites” in a while, so I thought it was about time. Mostly because I like rambling and this allows me to mention about thirty million things at once without you thinking I’m totally crazy.
Between being pregnant and getting Invisalign, I’ve been to a lot of appointments lately. At first, it was awful. I felt like I was wasting precious time in the day just sitting around in a waiting room. Then I realized, it’s actually pretty sweet. I get some quiet time, which for me means I can read something in peace. This book is hilarious and reading it is a perfect way to spend an hour stuck in appointment purgatory. I am patiently awaiting the chance to read the next one!
I’ve been skipping the rice when we go out for Japanese lately and I’m pretty glad I have been. Normally, I go ham in that place but lately I just don’t have the room to eat three pounds of the good stuff. I mean, they give the rice to you first. Anyone who doesn’t vacuum that up immediately into their face isn’t human. Now, I can eat all my veggies and shrimp and not have to go take an immediate nap. The best part is that I still snag a little bit of rice from Maddux, because c’mon, you have to eat some of it.
Dumb Target Decisions
Really this photo speaks for itself. The sad thing is that there was not a child present with me at the time. This was my own doing. PS: Peanut Butter M&Ms are definitely not as good as Reese’s pieces but they’ll do in a pinch.
I have nothing to add.
These two things mixed together make me feel like I’m sort of, almost drinking something I shouldn’t be. I don’t miss alcohol, per se, but I do miss fun, tropical drinks. This is the best replacement I’ve found so far.
While the thought of going out into the yard and digging up bugs pretty much repulses me, it’s really entertaining to watch Maddux do it. The day I took this picture, he caught a lizard, millipede, grasshopper, and various other creatures that I didn’t even know existed back there. The best part was how cute he was trying to release them back into the wild. Watching him tell them to go find their families was a-freaking-dorable.
Last but not least, I was able to try and review a new-to-me makeup line, UNT, through my partnership with SheSpeaks. I liked the sound of the company, because they say they are devoted to developing innovative and effective products at an affordable price. I just can’t justify spending a gazillion dollars on makeup, you know? I got to try out the Naked Truth CC Cream and the Mineraluxe BB Cream SPF 30. They are both lightweight, with the CC cream offering sheer coverage and the BB cream offering full coverage. They both last all day, have at least 30 SPF, are easy on my sensitive skin, and help me pretend I have a pregnancy “glow”. Honestly, I like them both but you’d definitely have to choose which amount of coverage you’d like for yourself. For everyday wear, the CC cream is perfect. If you’re breaking out or want a little more coverage for a night out, you may want to use the BB cream. Either way, you woke look overdone so I’m a big fan. Head over to the UNT Website to learn more about the products. You can save 10% sitewide with the code UNT10OFF. The code is valid until 10/31, so you have some time to choose your favorite things. Make sure you also find and like them on Facebook to receive information on giveaways and sampling programs.
