What I've Been Priming

Before we get started today I wanted to take a little poll. Maybe it's the fact that we've been cooped up for 8 weeks (gosh that's a long time!), or maybe it's that we haven't traveled in awhile due to Liam's birth... but I am itching to travel again! Obviously we aren't going anywhere anytime soon, but that isn't stopping me from mentally planning our next vacation. 

What I'm curious about is:
Have you also been planning your first trip once this quarantine is lifted?

I can't wait to see your answers! Now, onto what I've been Priming lately...

Gorilla Glue- Lily Grace has been doing puzzle after puzzle after puzzle lately. The pieces are starting to get worn down a bit and she accidentally broke a piece when taking one apart. We grabbed some super glue and the piece was back to being good as new!
Coffee Filters-- Since we have been home nonstop, we have been going through the coffee like CRAZY!
Cloth Mask-- When we heard the announcement from the CDC that we were supposed to be wearing cloth masks every time we go out, I called all the pharmacies/big box stores around our area to see if they had any and they were all out. I am NOT a seamstress and knew that if I wanted a mask, I needed to find one that someone else made. The one I bought is currently out of stock, but Amazon has other ones you can buy. Mine originally said it wouldn't arrive until mid-June and I ordered April 14th, but it has already arrived so don't be deterred by the estimated arrival.
Little Golden Books-- Lily Grace's birthday is next week and while she technically got a giant play set in the backyard for her birthday, we still wanted her to have something to open up on her actual birthday. I grabbed her several of these classic Little Golden Books since she loves to read!
Meal Planner Pad-- Our meal planner pad was starting to run low so I grabbed another one. We have been using this for YEARS and it is the easiest way for us to keep track of/plan ahead for what we are going to eat each week.
Isle of Paradise Tanning Drops--  I have seen these tanning drops EVERYWHERE lately and decided to finally give them a try. So far I like them! I'm still trying to figure out how many drops I need to use to get the right shade for me. Luckily I'm not going anywhere so if I mess it up, only my family will see 😂
Isle of Paradise Tanning Water-- I also bought the body spray and like it too! 
Today I am linking up with Andrea and Erika for Friday Favorites. Hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. Love all the Little Golden Books, especially the Disney ones. She will love still having something to open on her birthday!

  2. I love that Peter Pan book that I have from my childhood!

  3. I have been using the Isle of Paradise drops for a little while and am still trying to figure out how much to use. I find that I use between 4 and 5 squeezes. I tried doing regular "drops" and it wasn't enough. They are more big, runny drops. I haven't tried the body water yet though. Have a great weekend!

  4. There is nothing quite like those old Golden Books. I still have a few of my favorites hanging around.

  5. Aw the golden books!!! My daughter just tears through pages and isn't good at really letting me read her a book yet. Follow up about those tanning drops.. so curious!

  6. Oooh I have seen the tanning drops too but I'm so afraid I will look like a hot mess with them! Cannot wait to see/hear your thoughts! I am itching to get to our beach house and think I will in th next couple weeks since the other Carolina is functioning.
