Friday Favorites-First of January

Whew, we made it through the first week back after the holidays! I was seriously dreading the return to work and daycare on Tuesday, I thought my kids would be in total meltdown mode. But, to my surprise they were actually super happy, sweet, and ready to go! It always gives me such a good feeling to know how happy my kids are at the daycare that they go to; we truly are lucky to have found her! Aside from working our way back into a routine, trying to eat healthier, and surviving sub zero temps for a second week straight, I love the fresh feeling that comes with the new year, and of course there are so many goodies out there to support that!
1. New Year, New Letterboard
While my letterboard isn’t new, the quote on it may very well be my new favorite. I laugh every time I walk past it hanging on our wall, because it is SO true. And don’t ask me if we had pizza last night for dinner, because the answer is obviously yes. I am working on cleaning up as much of my diet as I can, and am even saying goodbye to my wine for at least a month just to flush out my system, but cutting out pizza? Nope, it just isn’t going to happen.
1. My First Facebook Live Event!
Well, I stepped way outside of my comfort zone this week and did a live video over on Facebook. Be on the lookout for more details next week, but we have started incorporating essential oils into our home and I hosted an online class for how to begin! It was super intimidating for me, because not only was I going live in front of people I know, I was educating on a product. But it went so well and I actually had a lot of fun! I will have the video up through Saturday, so if you want to check it out, you can do so HERE to learn more about how to use a YL Premium Starter Kit!
2. Valentine’s Pajamas
Okay, yes, I am sharing more pajamas. Jackson is wearing size 5T you guys, which means my days of putting him in all of the adorable toddler pajamas are truly becoming numbered. And I saw this pair and purchased immediately for both of my boys. I absolutely love Valentine’s Day (okay, I mostly just love the color pink) and it always bums me out a bit that there aren’t many great options for boys. These are still very much made for boys, but so sweet and festive without including robots or ‘love monsters’. I know you other boy moms know what I mean!
4. Sueded Moto Jacket
I feel like I have been lacking an in-between jacket. I have a good amount of spring options, and I have my warm down jacket that I wear most days during the frigid cold of winter. But I don’t have a stylish option that is cute and easy to wear but still warm and cozy. Earlier this week, I saw this jacket at American Eagle marked down at a MAJOR discount. It is originally $150 and is on sale for only $35! I scooped it up right away; I love the moto style, and think this one looks so unique in that it is also a warmer option. I chose to go with black, and cannot wait to get my hands on it!
5. New Moisturizer/Hair Care/Do It All
As I continue to clean up my skin care routine, I grabbed a bottle of jojoba oil to mix with my essential oils when applying to my face. When I opened it, I read another suggestion on the bottle was to apply a drop to your hair as a serum when it is wet. Now trust me when I say that a little bit goes a long way, but my hair has been so dry and brittle lately, and I couldn’t believe how soft a little bit of this oil made it! Way softer than my normal hair serums, in fact. If your hair has been dry and just feels dull lately, try a little bit of jojoba oil, it is amazing!
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, we are finally supposed to see some temperatures in the 20s on Sunday, so I have my fingers crossed we can get the boys outside to do some sledding and snowman building!

    Great minds; I bought those jammies for the boys, too! Walker is in a 5T, too, and it makes me sad that I'm going to have to search high and low for cute little boy jammies. Why do retailers think boy pajamas have to have characters and/or be super cheesy?! Happy Friday!

    That letterboard saying is perfect! I seriously think I could eat a whole pizza if I wanted to, haha. Those PJs are adorable! A is just getting into 5T and I feel like they really need to come out with some cuter things for little boys. Happy Friday, girl! Sierra~Beautifully Candid

    I love that letterboard (and that saying haha – it's me in a nutshell). As a boy mama, I always get a little sad when I see little boys' clothes left behind – they just aren't often that cute!

    Happy Friday!

    YES, pizza!! I had pizza for lunch. Lol. We have it like once a week so don't feel bad. It's a staple that I don't think we'll ever replace!
