Work Week Wrap Up..That’s a Mouthful!

I thought it would be fun to wrap up the work week with my favorite photos.  There is no rhyme or reason to the photos, some of them will have links so make sure to check them out!


I stole an hour to myself one evening,  it was enough for me to recharge and gather my thoughts. Sometime I love just sitting in a Starbucks and reading, typically if I am heading up to Starbucks I bring my iPad, but this was an impromptu trip.

I don’t know about you, but I am loving the new holiday Starbucks cup.

If you are curious about the lipstick stain on the cup; it’s the brand Bite in Sour Cherry.

Also, last year I did a small review on that lipstick you can read about it here.


This pie is amazing and super easy to make. If you searching for a pie for Thanksgiving then this is the pie to bring. You can learn how to make it here!


This is probably one of my favorite candid photos from this week. Sophia loves to help me cook, but recently she has been loving scrambled eggs for breakfast. She is now even asking them for lunch sometimes.


On Tuesday night I was beyond cold, no matter how many layers I was wearing I couldn’t seem to get warm. Around 11pm at night I ran a hot bubble bath with a cup of tea.  I played Words with Friends for about 45 minutes and loved it. Then I crawled into bed and passed out until 6:57am.



If you missed this weeks post on the best homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte that is super easy to make you can check it out here!


If you are in the market for a new highlighter, I highly recommend Nars in Hot Sand. It gives a nice glow without looking like you rolled your cheeks in glitter. Another aspect that I like is you can control how intense of a highlight you want. I bought this earlier this year, and I barely put a dent in it.

My absolute favorite part is it doesn’t break me out at all. Major brownie points in my book!


Isn’t she beautiful? This little girl is the center of my whole world. My favorite holiday is approaching…Christmas. I am really looking forward to seeing Sophia’s reaction to different things. Since her birth I have been anticipating for the days that she believes in Santa and all the fun magic that comes with it. I am so excited to experience Christmas again through her eyes and continue with some of my favorite family traditions with her.

Speaking of traditions, I recently pulled out of storage all of our winter clothes, and I came across the Elf on the Shelf. When does yours make its grand appearance? I have been hearing the day after Thanksgiving.

Also…does your elf leave your kiddos little surprises? Sophia loves bath bombs, I was thinking of running to Bath and Body Works and grab a Twisted Peppermint Bath Bomb as a surprise…thoughts?


On Monday Sophia had her 3 year old check-up. I am please to share that Sophia is healthy as a horse. Which I am absolutely grateful for!

If you noticed that jacket that I am wearing is from my Winter Wardrobe Staples post. It’s my favorite jacket for the new winter season and it’s super warm!

My final thought is: What kind of future blog posts are you interested in me doing? And are you interested in video blog posts? Please share!
