Friday Favorites-- A Random Assortment

Good morning! The weather here today is supposed to be 73 and sunny... does it get any better than that?? If you are looking for us we will be outside soaking in the sunshine and beautiful temperatures!

Today I am linking up with Andrea for Friday Favorites and it is a whole random assortment of things for you today.  
My first favorite is actually one of Lily Grace's favorite things, but has become one of mine too because of something I picked up on one day while reading to her.

What's Up Wednesday

Good Morning and Happy What's Up Wednesday! I know I said this earlier in the week, but I cannot believe March is already over. Where on earth did this month go? Does anybody else feel that way?? 

Today I am linking up with Sheaffer and Shay today to share what's been going on around here.

April Goals

Hahaha this is me to a tee! I love, love, LOVE being outside in the warm weather and most definitely get grumpy when I'm cooped up inside for too long.

Friday Favorites-- Skin Care Edition

Good Morning! Today I am linking up with Andrea for Friday Favorites. Today's is all about my skincare regimen and my favorite skincare products. 

Okay first let me start by saying the most important thing I do to take care of my skin is make an annual dermatologist visit to have my skin checked. Unfortunately in high school/college/shortly after college I spent way too much time in tanning beds. I've written about it before here, but after my several years using tanning beds, I eventually had a mole come back as "severely abnormal" in 2014. Fast forward to fall of 2018 and I had another "severely abnormal" mole. As my dermatologist put it, "this isn't cancer, but it is cancer's next door neighbor." Yikes. I'm honestly hoping that none of my readers out there were as foolish as I was, but something tells me I'm not the only one in this boat.

What I've Been Wearing Lately

Happy first day of spring!! Spring is my favorite season. I love when the weather starts to warm up, the flowers and trees begin blooming and it feels like the world starts to "wake up" a little. We try to spend as much time outside as possible and I can't get enough of it!

Anyway, today I figured I'd share what I've been wearing lately because it seems like you all are as obsessed with checking out other people's outfits as I am :)

I wore this fun jumpsuit for a date night. Being tall I can NEVER find a jumpsuit that fits properly. I have a long torso and am never comfortable in one, but this one was perfect. The only caveat is it is definitely not work appropriate because of the low plunge in the front. But perfect for a date night!

Pregnancy Week 14

Today I am doing a quick pregnancy update. When I was pregnant with Lily Grace I kept a pregnancy journal where I wrote down how I was feeling/what we were doing to prepare but figured it would be much more fun to do an online journal this time around! Maybe another pregnant mama out there will want to read along, or some mama's who want to reminisce about being pregnant 😉.

Friday Favorites-- Book Edition

Good Morning! Today I am linking up with Andrea for Friday Favorites and since many of my friends out there are getting ready for Spring Break, I figured it would be a good idea to post some of the books I've been reading over the past year. If you have a flight in your future, or some down time on the beach, maybe you'll pick up one of these books before you go!

I try to read about 3-4 books every month and review them in my monthly "Book Club" posts. If you're interested in any of the following books, click the link for each month and you can read my thoughts on them:

The Story of My Blog Part 1

Today's post is all about how and why I started blogging. This little hobby of mine has turned into something I love much more than I expected, and now I'm kicking myself for not starting it sooner. Have any of you out there thought about starting your own blog but are hesitant? JUST DO IT! You won't regret it, I promise.

Today I am linking up with The Bolin Bunch for 10 on the 10th. 
Today's topic is "10 Things I Say On Repeat... All Day, Every Day". I think this is such a funny theme for a link up and can't wait to read other bloggers responses! I decided to split mine into categories:

Book Club-- February

Hi friends! Today is my monthly book review and apparently this month I was really in the mood for memoirs because all 3 of the books I read were memoirs. Of the 3 I read, I only really loved one of them. Let's get started...

What I'm Priming

Hi there! Before we get started today I wanted to remind you that I am doing a giveaway of a $25 Amazon gift card. All you need to do is click HERE and follow me on BlogLovin and Instagram to enter. The winner will be announced Friday. Good luck!! gift card design

Today I am sharing a recent glimpse at what I've been Priming AND a few things Devin has been Priming. Do any of you have a separate Prime from your spouse? I'm not talking a whole second account with a whole second fee, that would be crazy, but your own login/the ability to hide from your spouse what you bought (this is a life saver friends, truly!). Devin initially set it up for us a few Christmases ago so I didn't accidentally stumble across any presents that were supposed to be surprises. Now, as the majority Prime purchaser in the house, I am quite happy to say he can't see my many purchases. 😉 For the sake of today's post though, I asked him to let me peruse through his purchases and share. Ladies, I'm not going to lie, I laughed out loud at the ridiculous things he bought. I'm a little too embarrassed to even share all of them. Also, he bought like 5 things over the past 6 months. Uh huh, me too... 😳

First, what I've been Priming this month:
purlisse Perfect Glow BB Cream SPF 30 - BB Cream for All Skin Types - Smooths Skin Texture, Evens Skin Tone - Light, 1.4 Ounce
