Friday Five

Oh y’all, what a fun few days we have coming up. Eek! Today…probably right at this very second in fact {I write these posts in advance and schedule them to be published right at 8am, in case you couldn’t tell}…my cousin Jess is having her baby! I probably won’t be able to sleep, I’m so excited! I’m going to go ahead and put my prediction out there on Baby B: 21.5″, 9 pounds, 8 ounces (even though he’s only 39 weeks!), and another redhead.

I’m honored that she asked me to take pictures of Emery and B. meeting for the first time this morning. If she gives me permission I’ll share one on Monday.

Eek! Eek! Eek! Another baby to love on!

So excuse me if this post is all jumbled, but I’ve got Baby Brain!

Let’s get to it, shall we?

  1. First up, one of my sorority sisters {click here for her site} sent me a sample of No. 3 Balancing Facial Mask from Beautycounter when she heard I love trying new masks. It’s a charcoal-based mask. This is a little before and after. In real life I could tell a difference in pore size and skin tone/color/pigment (which is a big deal when you have problem with skin tone to begin with). It didn’t dry my skin out either like so many masks!

2. I don’t really ever think my oldest and youngest look alike. MM looks so much like me (with straight hair) and Lawson looks so much like C. (with curly hair)…or so I thought.

Uhm, twinsies. Yes, his upper eyelids are a little more…uhm…absent, haha…like C.’s, but y’all, they look so much alike {minus eye color}!  I love genetics.

3. Maybe it’s because I’m a teacher myself, but I love giving teacher gifts. If it’s a holiday, we do gifts. It’s just our thang. I should’ve taken a picture our St. Patrick’s Day little gift that included chocolate coins, leprechaun socks, and lucky 7’s scratch-off lottery tickets–it was a cute, cheap, fun idea. Anyway, this was our Easter baskets we delivered last week.

Yellow containers. Bunny kitchen towel. Easter pasta. Rustic rabbit. Sisal chick with bunny ears. Bunny canvas. Flower in tin can.

4. In a recent post I mentioned items I was out of and reordering. That got me to think about my current haircare routine and a couple of new items I’ve added recently.

I’ve been using Pureology Hydrate Shampoo + Conditioner for a couple of years now (here it is in a regular size bottle–that lasts me 4-6 months), and I’ve been using Aveda Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight and Aveda Smooth Infusion Style-Prep Smoother for at least three years now. The two latest things are Pureology Fanatic Multi-Tasking Hair Beautifier–it’s like a vitamin spray–and Matrix Turbo Dryer since I have so!much!hair! and it really does cut down on drying time! Very pleasantly surprised.

5. We are getting so excited about taking MM on her surprise trip to Dallas on Monday. She has NO idea. ..and I’m totally not telling her until we pull into the airport parking lot. I’m going to pack her suitcase and put it in the car the night before so she won’t even know we’re spending the night anywhere…much less several states away! …much less with JUST her mommy & daddy! I can’t wait to see her face! Eek!

Hope you all have a great weekend. We’ve got babies and trips and gorgeous weather here. And I can’t wait.
