Happy Friday my people. Yet another week of summer has come and gone. It’s been hot here and that’s okay with me. I like to know it’s really summer. I’ve been busy as usual this week. Katie and I continue to eat pretty clean and follow our workouts for the FASTer Way To Fat Loss. We’ve really gotten stronger. I had to buy yet another, heavier set of weights. There’s another round starting up on August 14th if you are interested in giving it a try.
Let’s jump ahead and find out what made the favorites this week.
You know I love a good funny and this is me to a T. Katie seems to be constantly telling me to stay focused, especially when we are working out. Whenever we have the slightest break between exercises I’m taking advantage of it and either checking email, folding laundry or something.
Multi-tasking is the name of my game.
Meet sweet little Leah. She made her entrance into the world Sunday. Remember yesterday when I shared the pie recipe I said I was taking dinner to our preachers family? Well you didn’t think I’d leave there without getting some sweet little snuggles did you? She’s a doll baby.
After reading Kellyann’s post on Makeup Meltdown and her recommendation of Urban Decay’s All Nighter, I went on the hunt for it. She said Nordstrom Rack had it and as luck would have it we have one close by. If you don’t have a Rack near you, you can also order it from Nordstrom. I got a variation of it called de-slick for oily skin and I’ve been liking the results. I don’t feel like I’m nearly as shiny by the afternoon as I usually am. Thanks for the recommendation beautiful friend!
Look at these happy faces!
Nothing makes my heart happier than seeing my kids happy (and in love?).

I’ve got a treat for the next TWO new Preferred Customer who order before the end of the month. I’ll send you a cute little cosmetics bag with a 3 day supply of Active Hydration Serum, a travel size eye cream, Lip Renewing Serums and 2 mini facials. One for you and one to share with a friend. (and if a friend you refer signs up, I’ll gift you an Essentials item of your choice). So if you’ve been thinking about trying something from Rodan + Fields this is the perfect time. We also still have our special bundle of any regimen + Active Hydration Serum and you’ll receive a FREE travel size regimen.
I recently shared this product (here) and I have to say the more I use it the more love it!

Yay!!!! I am so happy you got the UD setting spray, I might have to try the one you got next. I'll tell you what, getting it at the Rack is awesome, right? Stock up girlfriend!
That baby is so cute! Isn't it nice to hold them and then give them back? And seeing your sweet son and his girlfriend is so awesome. As moms that's what we want most I think – just to see our kids happy. And just so you know I told my youngest son that I love the term "bae" and I'm gonna start calling my husband my "bae"! Hahahahahaha, he flipped out and was like "No,no, no!"
and wasn't fun that we both appeared on TBB Friday Favorites? Love being in good company with you my friend!
I am off to whip up a frozen lemonade pie, I am planning to enjoy my last full week of break and enjoy sweet treats because it all comes to a screeching halt on August 7!
I sure hope you like the pie. Yes, you must enjoy the rest of your time off with your "bae"…LOL. I'd get the same reaction if I told my kids I was going to use that term too. How very fun that we were both on TBB today. I hadn't even seen it when I read this. Love it. I got the blouse today and Katie loved it when I tried it on. Two thumbs up for us!!! Have a great weekend sweet friend!!

What a cute little baby!! I'm jealous of those snuggles….What a perfect meme. I feel like my mind never stops working. I know yours doesnt. 🙂
She's a sweetie. Even though she was 9 lbs she still is so tiny. We loved getting to love on her.
What a cute baby. There's nothing better than baby snuggles! Happy Friday!
I know, right?! Have a great weekend, Angela!
That is such a cute picture of you and Katie with the face masks. Looks like you're enjoying every minute before she heads back to school! Have a great weekend!
Oh thanks Tanya! I feel pretty brave putting that out in the world for all to see. I'm trying to soak up every second. Hope you have a great weekend too!

Cute baby !!! I've never heard of the UD Setting Spray, I tend to be oily so I may try it myself 🙂 Super cute photo of the two love birds !!! Happy weekend !
She's really a doll. The small bottles showed they are regularly $15, but were $9.95 at Rack if you have access to one. They don't have it online. Have a great weekend! XO
Trista @ The Classy Chaos says
That meme is totally me!! It's like my brain never takes a break. There's always something else to do! Yay for baby snuggles! Have a great weekend!
If I lived close to you I'd totally be bringing you food and coming by for baby snuggles soon! You have a great weekend too! XO

Hoping to pick up some Aztec clay this weekend!I'm sure that new mom appreciated the food and an extra set of hands to hold the baby! Hope y'all are having a great weekend!
Welcome home! Katie has used almost the entire jar. It does a good job, but I don't love the process. It makes your face pulsate and is a little bit of work to get off. That was my second or third time to use it…I think I'm done with it. Don't buy the largest jar you can find. I don't want to discourage you, just know what you're getting into?
Love everything in this post. I have been wanting to try that Garnier Micellar product, I always see it when I'm in Walgreens! The graphic is SO me. I don't think my mind ever rests and I am a total busy body. Lol! It sounds like you are enjoying your daughter time this summer! I hope to do fun things like that (working out, facials, etc.) with my little girl when she gets older.
Thanks Carrie! Get some of the Micellar, it's great (especially on lazy nights 😉 We have had a ball and I'm so sad we are down to just 3 weeks. I was a little nervous about how her summer would go at home now that she's had a taste of "freedom". You hear tales of how it was such a struggle, but we've had a great time. She's actually had a traumatic summer in that there was a break up ? and a change in study abroad plans (as in she's not doing that now) so she was really happy to be home to have mom for comfort. Yay for me, boo for her❤️ Have a great weekend!
It's so sweet that you have such a fun relationship with your daughter! I have that more so with my dad. 🙂 And I feel totally scattered most of the time, so it's miraculous that I don't have 2,000 browser tabs open! Hope you're having a great weekend!
Aww, Thanks Jess. Yes, it's very special and I don't for a second take that for granted. I'm happy you have that with your dad. That's such a sweet, special bond as well. Happy Sunday sweet girl!

I am a major multi-tasker! Which sometimes is a downfall for me, because I have a hard time staying focused! Always looking for what I can do next! I just love seeing the pictures of you having fun with your kids! 😀

Hi Brooke! I really just think it's how we are wired as women. Always trying to make the most of every minute. It's good and bad. I'm lucky to have 2 great kids in my life. They are definitely my pride and joy. Have a great week!!!
