Happy Friday! Let’s share some favorites from the week! Please leave me yours in the comments, too! Linking up with Andrea, etc. here so this is a fun way to check out other blogs you may not know about.
But, first, how was your week? Mine was very relaxed – on purpose. Next week I set up my classroom and my boys go to registration to get their senior! schedules and get their senior yearbook photos taken. This week I did another Goodwill trip, did more organization, enjoyed slow mornings, and ran errands.
If you are in the mood this weekend, try my friend H’s super easy sangria “recipe” that I posted yesterday here along with a new recipe and some meal suggestions. I’m in a rut and desperately need some new recipes! My latest recipe is Turkey Sausage Alfredo and it comes together in about 15 minutes and tastes like something from a restaurant in my opinion – it probably has something to do with the butter and heavy cream. I guess I evened it out with the use of turkey sausage – ha! I enjoyed my glass of sangria while cooking it the other night – refreshing!
Shout out to my cousin and blog reader J for these favorites below. I had heard of drug store brand Physician’s Formula but had never purchased anything. She recommended The Healthy Foundation and it’s really good. It is about $15. It has a bit of a smell upon application but then goes away. She described it as “your skin but better” and I think that sums it up. I had been wanting to try the butter bronzer and I love it! It has a nice smell and consistency and really makes me look like I’ve been in the sun more than I have. Walgreen’s had a deal and I got the butter lipstick for free in a mauve color. I love it! It really does go on like butter and makes your lips feel moist.
Reporting back on my $25 Steinmart mules. Love them! I wore them the other day and they were super comfortable. I think I will wear these a bunch. I’ve included the Steinmart link if you are interested.
My blog friend Kellyann recommended this and I cannot stop at one serving so not sure I should tell you about it!
I enjoyed a Target run and got an iced doppio in a venti cup (means two shots of espresso) and then I proceeded to go buy new Premier Protein and emptied my half bottle of protein shake in the store – I’m classy like that! This is 1 WW point. Most people sing praises of the caramel flavor, but I prefer the vanilla. It’s so good. I only use half of a carton at a time which saves money and calories. It is around $7 for a pack of 4 shakes at my Target.
I purchased this phone tripod last spring but the holder wasn’t big enough for my phone. And, I don’t have an oversized phone. I finally ordered a bigger replacement holder and I’m excited to use this for my outfit pictures so I don’t have to bug people. That hopefully will mean more outfit photos!
This stack of library books is quite ambitious with only a few more days left of my summer! I thought I would show you in case you’re looking for something. These were either recommended to me or I thought the description looked fun.
Pottery Barn has products from Friends! I laughed out loud as I looked at these. Remember the apothecary table from one episode? Friends will always be one of my top favorite shows. It started when I was in college and then after college my friends and I would hold viewing parties. Or, we would call each other and discuss each episode. So fun!
Universal Thread at Target does it again. I showed you some of my colored and patterned bottoms this week and these charcoal and marigold tops will be a welcome addition and work into fall. Check them out here. The shirt is knit and the sleeves are more like a linen/cotton. I ordered two different sizes from Target.com and I am returning the one at the store that I didn’t choose. So easy!
What are you up to this weekend? I am hoping to boat with some friends, see some progress on our renovation, spend some quality family time, and that’s about it.
Any topic requests? Let me know in the comments!
Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by!
