Friday Favorites

I have been so bad about consistent blogging lately! I really do always have the best of intentions, but life continues to happen, and continues to be busy! I worked an evening event this week where I didn't get home until about 7:30, and losing that one night seriously throws everything off! With all of that being said, I am super happy to see the weekend! We are celebrating both my sister as well as my mother in law's birthdays, and I am ready to hopefully have some downtime and just relax!

1. Beautycounter gift sets

You guys, Beautycounter just came out with their holiday gift sets, and they are amazing! There are so many options, ranging from complete skin care collections, to small masks and specialized options, to eyeshadow palettes and body scrubs. I think my favorite is the charcoal set, which includes the [AMAZING] charcoal bar, as well as the charcoal mask. You can seriously see the impurities drawn out of your skin when you use it! Price points vary too, making it an affordable option to gift whether your budget is modest or large! They come beautifully packaged in a pink/red and gold box, and are seriously ready to go!

2. Baby pajamas
Okay, once again talking about the holidays here, but all of my favorite stores have rolled out their holiday pajamas for purchase! I always try to be way ahead on this, because nothing is cuter than Christmas jammies, and I intend to get every single day's use out of them that I can! So, we full on start rocking them before Thanksgiving, and I'm not one bit ashamed. I am planning to do a round-up of all of the cute options out there, but for now this pair, these, and these are my absolute FAVORITES and will without a doubt be making their way into the closets of my littlest men.

3. Speech
I mentioned it a bit recently, but Jax has just taken off with his speech lately. We don't even really keep track of new words anymore because he has so many. However, this week he really started stringing words together which is just so amazing to hear! He will pair a number of things with hi, buy bye, and night night. Yesterday, we were picking up Lincoln and he proudly declared 'NIA! House!' Nia is his new way of saying grandma, by the way ;-) I am so proud of how far he has come, and we are having so much fun really starting to communicate and converse with him!

4. PB powder
Have you guys tried out the peanut butter powder? I have seen it in grocery sections, but I actually got a big tub at Sams Club. To date, I have mostly used it as a mix in shakes, but this week I followed the instructions to use it as a peanut butter substitute for my cinnamon toast. OMG. So easy and yummy! And there are only 50 calories in a serving compared to 180 in peanut butter. I am sold!

5. The perfect jacket 
 I had a bunch of Gap rewards, and decided to pull th trigger on this jacket for Lincoln. It is an amazing material that keeps him warm but is not one bit bulky. If you are looking for a good jacket for your kiddos in car seats, this is it!

Hope you all have a great weekend filled with apples, pumpkins, and pretty leaves!


  1. I'm totally obsessed with holiday jammies for the boys! Give me all the Halloween and Christmas ones, please! (My husband totally doesn't get this, but it's a necessity!) :)

    1. RIGHT!? I limited myself to ONE pair of Halloween ones this year, but once Christmas comes I have zero self control. Our husbands can just stand together scratching their heads at us on our jammie shopping sprees :-)

  2. I can't wait to buy Christmas jammies for my girls. And I can't wait for you to post more of them! I have never had the PB powder, but would love to try it. My husband loves PB on his bagels, so this might be a good substitute. Have a great weekend!

  3. We were always allowed to open on gift on Christmas Eve, which was inevitably new pajamas. That way we always looked good for pictures the next morning :). I haven't used the PB powder, but might have to check it out. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

  4. I love Christmas pajamas! I need to grab the beautycounter mask from Target ASAP since I keep hearing great things about it. Jess at Just Jess

  5. okay I'm definitely going to be buying the charcoal set!

    1. You really should both items in the set are less than the mask usually costs alone!
