What I'm Loving

Yesterday was.. a day. There was a delay at school, so I had to go in late to work which wasn't a big deal because my coworkers had me covered - they're seriously awesome - but it still made for a bit of a stressful morning. Then, when I finally got off work I came home to no power because I totally spaced on paying the electric bill. Luckily, it was back on within 10 minutes of paying it but geez. I even wrote it down in my planner and missed it 😑

And then there's my daughter who just does. not. want. to. listen. to anything lately. I ended up taking away her tv/tablet time yesterday because of it and she was not happy. It turned out good though because we did some coloring, played some board games, made rice krispie - well, lucky charm - treats.. and we had a really fun time together.

Then there's this weird period right now where I feel like my husband and I are on totally different wavelengths and communication is just not happening. Well, not happening in the right.. positive kind of way it needs to, I guess I should say. I know it will be back to normal soon, but I hate it. Everyone is working hard, exhausted at the end of the day, wants time to themselves.. but there are so many things going on, lunch needs packed, bath and bed time routine for our daughter, workouts, dinner, laundry, etc. and by the end of all that you're just done and want to go to bed. We will get it together again soon as it's just that relationship ebb and flow, but man.. it's rough right now.

BUT. enough of that! Today has been great. I grocery shopped, dropped off recycling, cleared out the yard that was full of these leaves that have been haunting me for way too long, cleaned the house, got together a bag of clothes and kid's toys we no longer use and dropped it off at the thrift store.

While this week has been crazy and intense, there's also been a lot that I've been loving so let's get on to that.

This is the best smelling lotion ever! I found this at Whole Foods and absolutely love it. It smells like you're peeling an orange but then there's that really warm scent of clove - so good! The smell is intense out of the bottle, but settles down once you rub it on.

I'm all about things that smell good this week. I don't wear perfume or use any scented shampoos, conditioners, or soaps with a strong fragrance so I don't ever smell like anything and well.. I want to smell good 😜 I picked up this coconut milk oil mist for hair and really like it so far. You don't need to use much - like only one spray - and be sure to focus on only the ends of your hair so it won't look greasy.

These frozen burritos have been saving my life this week. It is nice to be able to grab one of these before heading out to work. The macros are fantastic and they taste great! I think the Amy's breakfast tofu scramble wrap might be my favorite - with very similar macros - but this one is awesome too. Check out the macro breakdown:

Lots of protein! I get these from Target and Wal-Mart. I haven't seen them anywhere else in the area.

» Have you heard of the Light 2 phone? It's a "dumb phone" that can only make calls, text, set alarms, and give basic directions. Its goal is to cure people's addictions to apps.

» some songs I've had on repeat: B-52's - Give Me Back My Man /// The Cramps - Primitive /// N.E.R.D. & Rihanna - Lemon /// Fad Gadget - Back to Nature /// Ariel Pink - Baby /// Young Bleed feat. Master P & C-Loc - How Ya Do Dat /// Kid Sister & Riff Raff - Hide and Seek

» I made this cauliflower taco filling last night and it was awesome! I did mine on the stovetop because I was limited on time.. but I bet it would be even better in the oven. I put the filling in a warm corn tortilla with lettuce, cheese, greek yogurt, and hot sauce. so. good.

» I'm in love with these Asics Metrolyte shoes in black and white, but found out they're discontinued and am having a hard time finding them in my size 😭 I'm currently searching for a pair of casual, low profile tennis shoes that I can wear during the day instead of my Stefan Janoski Nikes because they are covered in a layer of coffee/espresso grounds from work and that stuff is just not going to come out.

I hope that you all have a great weekend!
