Happy Friday, loves! This week has been…insane…to say the least. A death in the family, super late work nights, high pressure cheer time getting ready for a city-wide exhibition, and an ER trip to make sure everything was ok with our baby boy after I had some intense side pain for several hours. Thank you all for all of your sweet words on my Instagram post last night. Everything seems to be fine now, but it was definitely strange, and frankly, really freaked me out.
Needless to say we found joy in the little things this week! Here are a few examples:
+ If you want a good laugh, add me on Snap Chat (rachelemily_49) for some #preggoprobs like crazy eye bags and using the Stair Master at a snails pace.
+ Speaking of bags, I need suggestions on a good eye cream, face mask, SOMETHING to help these suckers. I have pretty sensitive skin so I’m always nervous to try something new. HELP ME.
+ Our local Kids Gap is closing at the end of January which might be the saddest day of my life – they always have my favorite kids clothes! Luckily, online shopping doesn’t seem to be going anywhere 😉 I’ve been stalking their site almost daily waiting for the best sale possible and they emailed me this morning with an extra 40% off your purchase this weekend (use code WEEKEND). So I pulled the trigger on a bunch of clearance basics for Camden and a couple pairs of maternity jeans for me!
+ Evelyn Henson’s illustrations are just the best and her free monthly tech downloads have brightened my screens for years now! I mean, how perfect is the “Always Carry Peonies” one? It’s currently on my iPhone screen!
+ Super obsessed with Making a Murderer. We are only three episodes in so I hate to make sweeping statements but SHEESH, it’s hard not to think this is police corruption at it’s worst.
+ If you love Ed Sheeran as much as I do (or even just like him a little bit I guess) you definitely need to check out the re-release of X (it’s called the Wembley Edition) on Spotify or whatever! It has 8 new songs and they are all just amazing. This one has got to be my favorite, though.
Hope you have a great weekend!
