Hi friends! I know I have been slacking in my blogging AND vlogging. I have been feeling kinda “blah” lately. The babies were having some weird sleeping patterns but are finally back to sleeping most of the night. HALLELUJAH. I don’t think I’ve actually gotten out of my yogas and sweatshirts unless I have some event to go to. Which is probably why I haven’t been vlogging… I look like I got hit by a bus on most days. We have lots of parties and get-togethers coming up, with the first being McKenzie and Kasey’s birthday party on Sunday. We decided not to do anything huge this year and only invited our immediate families over for cake and ice cream. I promised the girls I would take them and their friends to do something fun soon to make up for it. It honestly feels nice not having to worry about decorations, food, venue, etc. When is the cut off to birthday parties really? I think I stopped having a birthday party at 8 or 9?
I haven’t posted a Friday favorites in awhile so here ya go! 🙂
One | YOUNIQUE LIP BONBONS
I’m pretty skeptical about direct sales companies that you see all over your Facebook or Instagram, but when I saw the Younique fiber lashes I had to give those a try (which I still use and love). So I started trying other Younique products and the lip bonbons have to be one of my favorites! I use this as a chapstick because it is so smooth and moisturizes my lips. It’s just a bonus that it has a tint to it. I use “Red Velvet Cake” which is a light pink tint. It’s not too overwhelming and great for every day use. They also make such a great stocking stuffer!!
Two | VITAFUSION PRENATAL VITAMINS
If you follow me on Instagram you have heard me talk about how my hair is falling out in chunks. It’s AWFUL. I’m not usually one to wear hats but I broke out all my baseball caps to cover it up. I have always had thick hair but now I can almost feel a breeze on my scalp due to hair loss. If you are childless then you might not know that hair loss is common after pregnancy. I was advised to start taking prenatal vitamins again to help with it, so I picked up these ones. I only started taking them a couple weeks ago so I haven’t noticed much of a difference yet but they taste yummy! I hated those big horse pills you get prescribed so this is a nice alternative.
Three | PIEROGIES
My husband is so annoyed with me because I have been making pierogies and sausage at least once a week. He says “this is the most plain dinner” (he still eats it though). 😉 No way, I’m all about the pierogies and they are super easy to make! This recipe calls for kielbasa (which I also love) but I typically just throw in some Italian jalapeño sausage to give it a little kick. This is such an easy crockpot dinner for you busy mommas out there! Find it on my Pinterest here.
Four | CHRISTMAS EVERYTHINGGGG
Yes, I listen to NSYNC’s Merry Christmas Happy Holidays daily. It’s just so good. I think I’m finally done buying Christmas decorations for the year and just ready to celebrate the best holiday! I’m sending out our Christmas cards today too! I absolutely love getting cards in the mail. It is so fun getting something other than bills in the mail, ha! So yes, I’m telling you to send us one if you haven’t already 😉 . One of my favorite things to do for the holidays is dress up my kids! They only get to wear these outfits one month out of the year but how cute are they? Onesies were made by my neighbor. Love love love. Stay tuned for all their other holiday outfits in upcoming blogs/vlogs.
