my favs this week (May 16, 2014)

Friday, May 16, 2014

Thankfully, I feel like I am slowly getting used to this working-mom stuff and while I'm not a pro, I think I'm managing well enough.

Here are some things I've been loving this past week:


  1. Harboiled eggs - these make my tummy more full and my life easier. I've been boiling and peeling a bunch of eggs on Sunday and eating them throughout the week. They fill me up and keep me full, are delicious, and are super healthy. An easy snack on their own or delicious on a salad or in a pita. YUM!
  2. Essie Play Date - I put this on earlier this week and despite it not matching a single outfit, I still love it and have decided that I may just need to buy something to coordinate. It's not wrong to buy clothes to match nail polish, right?
  3. Swiffer - just the plain old sweeper style (I know they have all kinds of fancy stuff now). This is a lifesaver when I need to pick up dog hair (because there is ALWAYS dog hair) and mini-me is sleeping. It's quiet, picks up a lot of hair, is super cheap, and gets under all the furniture.
  4. White jean jacket - I love this jacket! I'm weird about wearing blue denim with other blue denim (though I've seen people pull it off, I just can't do it) so this is perfect with blue jeans. I may have to be careful not to wear it too often. I also am trying (desperately) to not spill coffee on it (which may or may not involve me drinking in a really awkward position. It's all about sacrifice!).
  5. Runtastic app (iphone) - this free app is awesome for keeping track of so many activities. I have been using it to track my run (okay, slow jog/walk) route. It tracks your route, calories burned, as well as time. My competitive nature makes me always feel the need to beat my previous time and it's really helping me stay on track.
  6. Post its - who doesn't love post its? Now that I'm back to work I'm constantly leaving myself reminders everywhere on post its. I also use them for shopping lists (helpful hint: make sure you actually bring the list when you go to the store).
  7. Dayplanner - I have the Bloom one featured in the pic (which I couldn't find a link for, apparently  not the time of year to be buying a planner). Like most, I keep a lot of things in my phone, but I really feel the need to write some things down. It makes me feel more organized. This one is super cute, small enough to fit in my purse but big enough to be able to write lots under each day AND has cute quotes throughout (I love that stuff). 
And those are my favs this week. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend (long weekend here - woohoo).

  1. Love hard boiled eggs - I eat one every morning with a protein shake and I'm not hungry again until lunch. Love the color of your nail polish - I would totally buy an outfit to match that color! Have a great weekend!

  2. Hard boiled eggs are such a great way to get easy, quick protein and fat. I'm going to paint my nails right now. If I working mom can keep her nails looking cute I have no excuse! Have a great weekend!

  3. I try to have a hard boiled egg everyday with my smoothie. They really fill you up for a few hours. I think I need one of those cute planners!

    1. omg and did you get soooo excited for back to school shopping? I won't lie, I was a little sad when I started working and didn't get to buy paper, pens and other 'school stuff' at the end of August.

    2. YES! Back to school shopping was my favorite time of year (and not because of the new clothes...obviously, lol)!

  5. I have a hard boiled egg every day for lunch. Perfect to pack for work! I am addicted to salt, so I always pack some to go with it! I just bought my first jean jacket and am already thinking I need a white one!
