Hello friends! Is anyone still there?!
This blog has been sitting pretty silent for the past month and a half, but I plan on getting back into posting regularly soon. Thank you to everyone who has stuck it out with me during my blog hiatus and is still reading this post! I will have more to share soon about what’s been going on in life, but for now I thought I would hop back in with a post highlighting some of my favorites of the week.
I ran across this image from Proverbs 31 Ministries a few months back, and have had it saved to my phone ever since. It’s such a great reminder as I spend a lot of time on social media for both personal and professional reasons. There are times when my self-worth can fall upon the affirmations of others – and that’s not okay! It is days like those when I take time away to focus on life’s joys and my own thankfulness, while remembering who we truly live to please and praise. I feel like this advice is great for all areas of life though and not just social media: whether at work, at school, with friends, etc. It’s definitely a thought we can all take to heart!
Baby pic for sweetness! We are beginning to transition into the spring months, and friends, it’s not a moment to soon! Jack’s winter clothes are starting to get pretty snug and short, but I don’t want to purchase any more sweaters and pants for him with the cold months coming to an end. Gap had a 40% off sale this week so I took advantage of it by stocking up on a few new spring / summer outfits for Jack. A few of the items I loved were already sold out (How?!), but I was still able to pick up some cute and comfy pieces. Now all we need is some warm weather and sunshine to go with the t-shirts and shorts!
On March 7, Beautycounter will be releasing NINE new products and I am so excited about it! These products will make great, spa-like additions to your basic skincare routine. They act as the perfect accompaniment to our Essential Nourishing Line and our Countertime Rejuvenating Line! (Those products are available as a Collection set, or as individual products.) I can’t say much more on the new offerings at this time, but I am looking forward to sharing more about them in the near future.
Present Over Perfect has been on my must-read list for awhile, but I have never gotten around to reading it! I am a library girl through-and-through, and finally after months of waiting it was my turn to borrow the book. However, since it is so popular I only had a few weeks to borrow it and couldn’t renew it. Sadly, I didn’t even open it before I had to return it! I was telling my mom about this earlier in the week and she surprised me with the book Wednesday when we met for lunch. I just started reading it last night, and I am looking forward to reading more over the next few weeks.
I used to make microwave eggs for my breakfast sandwiches all the time, but for some reason I’ve forgotten about them! I started making them again earlier this week and can’t get enough. Simply spray a shallow round container with cooking spray, then whisk one egg with a little water. Microwave for 45 seconds, lift egg with a fork to check for doneness, then microwave for another 12-15 seconds. Season with salt and pepper and place on a toasted English muffin or bagel. This sandwich was topped with a slice of ham and sharp cheddar, but I have also used avocado, provolone, and Canadian bacon. So good and super easy! This entire sandwich took me about three minutes to prepare, I toasted the muffin while I cooked the egg, and it’s perfect for enjoying at home or on-the-go!
You Tell Me:

Have a great weekend everyone!
