F R I D A Y, oh how I adore you!!

It’s SUMMER!!!

Am I right when I say, Summer weekends are the best?  There is something to say for getting outdoors and breathing in all that fresh air on the weekend that makes working indoors throughout the week feel a little less constricting.

Recap of this weeks posts- If you missed them you can                                                    find them here, here, and here.

I got a few new tops and a pair of jean shorts at Target the other day that I’m excited to debut.  My daughter and I had a great time shopping and trying on clothes together.

I recieved my Young Living essential oils starter kit in the mail on Tuesday and I’ve already got the diffuser crankin’ in Luke’s room.  He and I have had a bit of a head cold lately so I’m diffusing a recipe that consists of 3 drops of thieves, 3 drops of lavender, and 3 drops of R.C. (respiratory comfort) at night to help him sleep and get rid of whatever it is we’ve got.  I also put that same combination (only one drop of each) on his chest and feet on top of a layer of coconut oil.  Fingers crossed we’ll be better by tomorrow!!

Last week, I was asked to purchase and try Rodan + Fields.  I have heard a lot of great things about this brand and have always been very curious, so I asked for a sample rather than to purchase at this time.  As promised, she sent me a trial packet.  Unfortunately, the trial size was only enough for one-time use.  Overall, I really liked the products.  I had never used a lip mask before, so that was interesting.  I’m definitely a try it before you buy it kind of gal and I want to see the results, however, the sample size just wasn’t enough to ‘sell me’ on the products.  She did inform me that it generally takes up to two weeks to see results and that they have a 100% money back guarantee, so I’m still on the fence.

Lastly, I purchased a new foundation this week.  I am generally not one to spend a lot on makeup products but I believe it is essential to splurge on foundation, which is the base for all your other makeup products.  I highly recommend going to Ulta or Sephora where you can get help and suggestions for the right type of foundation (i.e. full, medium, or light coverage) and color matching.

We are heading to Branson tomorrow for a much needed day/night away with the kids!  My Dad has a boat and we’re going to do some boating, tubing, skiing, and (a little) drinking!  I’m also looking forward to a day of no chores and some much needed vitamin D.  I’m excited to watch Addie go tubing once again. Hopefully she will still like it. Not sure about Luke.  He’s a little more reserved and timid.

That’s all for now folks!  May your coffee be strong and you workday be short!

Have a great weekend!
