This week flew by. No? Just me?


What I'm Reading:

  • I listened to the audiobook of One by One by Ruth Ware. I've really enjoyed all of Ware's books but this was probably my least favorite of the ones I've read. I don't know if it was too similar to The Guest List or what but it wasn't my favorite. I think I'm in the minority with this one though. Though I read it super quickly and I finished in a few days.

  • I finally started to get into Writers and Lovers. People have likened it to Sweetbitter which I loved so I'm eager to get a bit further in.

  • I just started The Wife Upstairs on audiobook and so far so good.

What My Kids Are Reading:

  • Penny really loves this Usborne book of things to spot. We've had it for years and she always pulls it out. I'm thinking of getting a few of the other ones they make.

What We're Watching:

  • Still just watching Bling Empire which I'm obsessed with though I hate everyone.

What I'm Wearing:

  • The few times I put on jeans I have put this Madewell sweater on with them. It has been sold out for awhile but there are a few sizes available now on sale.

  • I've also been living in my APL sneakers when I walk the dog or run the kids to school. I love that they slip on and they're so comfy. I'm thinking about getting another color.

  • It is so cold here so I'm throwing on my Barefoot Dreams robe and Ugg slippers most mornings and nights.

  • I bought a bunch of EvolveTogether masks for myself and Scott and the kids. They're comfortable and if they are as effective as they claim to be I feel pretty comfortable going into the places we need to these days.

What My Kids Are Playing With:

  • These Crayola pastels have been our go to when we're doing anything creative these days.

  • Penny loves this Disney Princess Style Collection set.

  • Penny loves the Slumberkin unicorn that she got for Christmas. The book is so sweet and she loves sleeping with the stuffed animal. I bought her the Hedgehugs for Valentine's Day and I think she's going to love it.

What I'm Excited About:

  • I am officially reiki 1 certified. That means I am able to practice reiki on myself. It was a magical 2 days of training and now I'm in my 21 day cleanse of practicing reiki daily. I really feel balanced and calm. I'm looking forward to learning how to do it on others.

  • We booked a long weekend in October in Montauk for my cousin's wedding. I know it's 9 months away but it's something to look forward to. I can't wait until warmer weather.

Random things:

  • I LOVE the GoopGlow products that I've been using lately. I drink the GoopGlow superpowder every morning and I really like how it tastes. Not sure if it's that or the other products that are making my sk I use the peel once a week and my skin looks super glowy the next day. I also love the exfoliator once or twice a week in the morning.

  • I have become obsessed with products from The Laundress. I use the bleach alternative as a soak when the kids clothes are super soiled or there's a stain I know won't come out. I also like to throw a capful or 2 in the washer. I use their sports detergent for workout clothes, whites detergent and delicates wash as well.

  • Penny has been wearing her Alice and Ames dresses a lot recently. I love that they're cotton and easy to throw on. She loves how twirly they are.


Tell me what's going on with you.
