Oh, hey Friday! It has been one crazy week and I hear it’s a full moon. As a teacher that’s always scary.
Anyhow, Zoey woke up at 4:00am this morning so I’ve had time to publish this post BEFORE Friday ends, instead of my usual Saturday mornings.
So here are this week’s favorites…also sharing some EXCITING NEWS this week!
ONE. This weekend I took advantage of Ulta’s 21 days of deals and purchased some new make-up. I finally gave up on my $5 drug store make-up after constantly breaking out. Here is what I’m loving!
- Too Faced Eye Primer – This stuff is AMAZING!!! It helps prevent your eye make-up from running and creasing in your eyelids and it works SO GOOD! I like that it’s not very heavy, it’s light in color, and it last all day, especially in this Florida heat and humidity. It is a MUST!
- Too Faced Eyes Natural Palette– Beautiful colors for eye shadow!
- Too Faced Natural Face Highlight, Blush, and Bronzing Veil Face Palette – It has everything you need to contour!
- Bare Minerals Foundation– My most favorite foundation ever. It’s nice and light but gives great coverage!
TWO. I’ve been wanting to purchase this book for Ava. It talks about going back to school, making friends and treating others the way you want to be treated. It just looks like a super cute book.
THREE. Right now, Walmart has some super cute options for leopard print tops. If you’re into leopard then definitely check out your local Walmart.
FOUR. I made these Oreo brownies a long time ago and recently found them in my photo archives so I thought I would share the recipe. It’s super easy!
EASY OREO BROWNIES
INGREDIENTS: One box of brownie mix, one package of Double Stuffed Oreo’s. I used Aldi’s brand of brownie mix and their knock off brand of Double Stuffed Oreo’s.
DIRECTIONS: Prepare brownies according to package directions. Break Oreo’s into chunks and combine half with prepared brownie mix. Pour brownies into baking pan. Top brownies with the remaining Oreo chunks. Bake according to brownie directions. I doubled this recipe, and bake them in a 9×13 dish for extra thick brownies.
FIVE. So the exciting news is…we’re getting a PUPPY! Yes, that’s right! We’re getting a puppy. Her name is Bella, she’s an Australian Labradoodle, she’s the most precious thing ever, and we will pick her up next Friday! The girls know and they’re super excited.
Are we crazy for getting a puppy with a one year old in diapers and a four year old? Of course! But we figured what the heck! Might as well add to the craziness and get a puppy. We’re up with the 4 year old and toddler, might as well be up with a puppy too!
That’s it for this week! Happy Friday!
