This week has been one of those weeks where we are pretending global warming isn’t actually happening. We have been enjoying this beautiful weather that the Midwest has sent our way. After spending Sunday at the park in t-shirts, I can officially say I hope Winter is over. I’m also pretending that there isn’t snow in the forecast this weekend, no matter how bad Little Man wants to build a snowman.
Besides the weather, there are a few other things I’ve run across in the last few weeks, so how about some Friday favorites?
I swore I would never join Ipsy, no matter how much my co-workers tried to talk me into it. More on that another day. Thanks to an Ipsy deal for Ouai Finishing Creme, I finally caved. Crazy hair has something I have struggled with for most of my life and the Ouai products came highly recommended. They are absolutely wonderful and I’ve already ordered some extra since my samples ran out. Of course, I’m officially an Ipsy member now.
One thing I’ve learned watching college basketball over the years is that I get way too sad to see seniors graduate. Last year my husband made fun of me for tearing up during the IU senior speeches. This year the senior speeches are getting me again. After watching Valpo’s senior night speeches from the other night it makes me even more sad that we only have a month and a half left before a break from college basketball. Can they have a fifth year please?
Recently, I started spending my lunch hours at a local coffee shop. Drinking coffee and working on the blog a little bit gives me a chance to clear my head. Each day they feature different types of coffee. Yesterday I realized I get more excited than I should when I see cinnamon hazelnut coffee sitting out. You really should try this combination if you have never tried it before.
When it comes to podcasts, I tend to go in phases. For two straight weeks all I will listen to is podcasts and then not again for another month. After playing catchup on my favorite podcasts I decided to look for some new ones. I discovered Georgie’s new podcast Chasing Joy and Jenna Kutcher’s podcast The Goal Digger. Both of these podcasts come highly recommended.
This weekend we are celebrating Little Man’s 4th birthday. I cannot believe he is turning 4 next week. If you need me this weekend, I’ll be surrounded by Paw Patrol decorations and a lot of cake.
What are your favorite things this week? What type of coffee are you drinking this morning?
