My my, what a full week! It blows my mind how quickly our weeks fly by, despite some moments feeling like they take forever. For example? I spent Wednesday morning in traffic court (for an expired tag AND licence for those that are under any pretense that I have my life all together). And wait, let me rephrase that– in traffic court with a 4 year old AND an 1 year old. It was about as fun as it sounds and though my tickets got tossed out, it is a lesson I will not forget. Watch those expiration dates friends!
Wow, how is that for a tangent to start the weekend?! Let’s get to it–
I had to do an entire posts of favorites just so I could tell you about this one life-changing item. And no, it is not an exaggeration.
The Wet Brush — If you have a child that is a girl, have a friend that is pregnant with a girl, are a girl yourself or, shoot, know a boy with hair longer than 1 inch long, you need this in your life. It’s less than $10 and will make it so you never have to hear the words ouuuuuuch that hurts! ever again. I don’t know how it does this witchcraft, but this brush will gently straighten out the craziest of tangles like it ain’t no thang. I even use it on my hair.
Just go check out the reviews. Life. Changing.
The only possible way I can follow up sharing my love for that brush is to share a much more meaningful cause with you.
Moms in Training. My friend, Jenny, is a member of the Leadership Team for a program called Moms in Training. The program is in conjunction with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and if you live locally, you need to know about this awesome program/opportunity!
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Moms In Training (MIT) program launches April 2nd at The Children’s Theater of Charlotte. MIT is a social, flexible 10-week fitness program for moms with over 10 workout locations across the Charlotte area (offered on weekday & weekend mornings). The program caters to moms of all fitness levels (walking/running/stroller-friendly workouts) and culminates with the opportunity to complete a local 5K run/walk on June 11th (kid/stroller friendly)!
Take a look at this must watch 4-minute video to see what’s inspired over 2,500 moms to raise over $3 million in the fight against cancer! For more info. on the program, visit their facebook page.
I Need My Monster. I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but Storyline Online is a really great site, sponsored by the Screen Actors Guild, where celebrities read books to children. Hailey loves it and finds them very entertaining. Recently we watched one together where the book was called I Need My Monster.
It’s a really cute, non-scary, story that both Hailey and I really enjoyed. It’s a good length (so important, right?!) and gives the opportunity to do a lot of different voices for the different monsters. It’s a great one to gift a child!
This marinade. I used it yesterday on a pork tenderloin, then baked the tenderloin at 400 for about 30 minutes. It turned out so flavorful and juicy that I’ll definitely being doing it again!
The girls devoured it too, which is always a win, and asked for more. Try it!
This is my life.
Cute Workout Gear. It took me a really long time to get behind the idea of buying cute workout gear. I’m not sure why, since I wear it a minimum of 4 days a week, but now I totally get it. It makes working out much more fun but it also translates better into wearing it for the rest of the day (ha, because you know I do). I love my Lululemon crops and recently I’ve really taken too the fun patterns and styles that Fabletics (affiliate link)offers.
I’ve also been embracing fun legging patterns, which are totally out of my comfort zone. However Lulu, Prana and Fabletics are the only lines I’ve found that make my legs feel “held in” (if that makes any sense?), so I don’t mind branching out a little with those brand and Fabletics has the best prices of the bunch!
