Happy May, y’all! Long time, no talk. It feels like I haven’t written anything in forever. I have been trying to get in a better rhythm of writing, but my goodness, it is so hard with other obligations. Kudos to y’all who manage blogging, a demanding job, and community involvement. Send me your secrets please! It feels so good to sit down and catch up with y’all. I can’t wait to hear what you’re up to 🙂
Current coffee of choice • Iced lavender latte
Good news • Thank y’all so much for your kind words regarding my biopsies. Everything came back benign, and I am so relieved. There has just been good news all around lately, and I am praising God for it.
New favorite snack • I’m probably late to the game on this one, but y’all, Halo Top’s chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream is everything. I crave it constantly. I don’t count calories, but I feel better about my snack of choice knowing that there are only 360 calories in a pint.
Track meet season • My brother is a runner, and my spring basically revolves around his meets. I’m such a nerd, so I am constantly getting on Milesplit and pulling analytics on him, his teammates, and competing teams and scoping out the best places at the stadium to take photos and video. Last weekend, my family helped throw a signing party for his best friend / teammate, and it was just the coolest experience.
Essential oils • Did y’all know that you can use certain essential oils on dogs? I have been so pleased by my personal results that I’ve started using Young Living’s Animal Care products on Francis. She outsmarts me when it comes to doggy medications, so being able to use oils for things like storm anxiety and itching has been a big help!
Chop chop • I cut six inches off of my hair and touched the blonde up. I feel like a new person! On the mornings that I wash my hair, I actually get up, wash it, condition it, and then blow dry it. When I had long hair, I think I used a blow dryer once a month, and that is being generous! On day two, I use a curling wand for fun waves, and on day three (I can actually get three days out of my hair now!), I play it by ear. I can actually run my fingers through my hair now, and that is exciting. I’m on the hunt for the perfect product for beachy waves, so please send those recommendations my way!
Shopping list • Nordstrom triple points will be here tomorrow, and I have an entire list of goodies that I’m purchasing at that time so that I can take advantage of those points! Haha. I fell in love with this shower gel while staying at my favorite hotel in Nashville, and I fell in love with this moisturizer when I tried it in the PLAY by Sephora box; I can’t wait to order both of them! Also planning on picking up a few goodies for my Momma during the sale.
Please please please tell me what’s new with you! How’s work? School? Tried any new products lately that I need to check out? Keep me in the loop 🙂
Happy Tuesday, sweet friends!
