Well it's been an interesting week- I had a broken tooth and a huge new filling and am dealing with some effects of stopping nursing Reid- another post on that another day.

But I did see my friend Lynde, who now lives in Australia!  So that was a highlight!

I've been having all kinds of sleep issues lately and I think (cross your fingers) I found a solution and it's not taking Simply Sleep like I had been for ages.  I've been using Young Living Stress away if I wake up in the middle of the night (every night!) and I actually go back to sleep!  I've been diffusing for 2 years but just recently decided to try more oils and I can honestly say I feel a difference.  As of now it's safe to say everyone I know will be getting a roller ball for Christmas!


In the last 2 weeks 3 of my friends have asked me about my TOMS.  And I can't recommend enough my TOMS Avalons.  They are so comfy.  I still wear my other pairs, but these are definitely my faves.  I have 2 pairs- a metallic and a black/white/grey stripe (similar).  And almost every time I wear them someone comments on them.  Just FYI- I'd order a half size down- mine are a little big.


Of course, you know I've been loving my 2 pairs of Articles of Society jeans but I really felt a need for some looser fitting jeans too- no one wants to wear skinnies everyday.  So I was super excited when I found these.  But then they sold out before I ordered them.  But they just restocked so I couldn't order fast enough.  I've heard great reviews so I'm hoping they look good- this is my first pair of boyfriend/ slouchy jeans.  For $34 I figured it was worth a try! (if the link isn't working- here's a similar pair but not distressed.)  They sell out super fast!


This weekend my friend is having a couples halloween party and Christian and I are dressing up as Danny and Sandy from Grease.  I ordered the much recommended Spanx leather leggings and picked up some 50's accessories from Amazon.  Both Christian and I are a little nervous about the tight-fitting outfits- but I'm sure it will be fun.  I'll have to sneak a pic though because he demands that no pictures get on social media!


I'm a week behind but last week I went to see The Price is Right!  We had our t-shirts made but unfortunately none of us got to "Come on Down."  It was very similar to the TV show and a fun night!

Happy Weekend!

  8. I swore I commented before but my computer froze up at the time so I guess it didn't get through (so I'm sorry if this is an obnoxious double post! Haha!). Thanks for sharing these jeans - I've been desperately searching for some new kinds to try! Hope your tooth is feeling better!

  9. I found your this post while for information about blog-related research ... It's a good post .. keep posting and updating information.
