It has been such a busy week around here. Jon David and I got back from New York on Monday evening, and Tuesday I was right back in the swing of things. We were out of a lot of groceries so Lucy and I packed up and went to the store and headed to the clinic for my weekly allergy shot. School conferences were this week too. I’m really looking forward to relaxing this weekend.
Is it just me or is getting back from vacation like the worst thing ever? The suitcases of dirty laundry, the sad, empty fridge, all the real life things that don’t care that you just spent all day in a stinky airport. Ugh. Hate.
We had so much fun on our trip. My best friend Shelly and her two boys met up with us and we had a busy couple of days! We took the boys to see the Statue of Liberty, the 9/11 Memorial, the Museum of Natural History, Serendipity and a Broadway show. Jon David and I walked to FAO Schwarz on his birthday, and he had a blast! It’s such a fun toy store to explore. We went for pizza later in the day and passed the Times Square Discovery Center where they had a really awesome Lego Sculpture exhibit called The Art of the Brick, so we HAD to go in. It was SUCH an awesome exhibit!
Then we came home and I collapsed from exhaustion. Then I opened my wallet and dust and moths flew out. Because…New York.
I read a lot at the airport and on the plane, and I’ve got some GREAT books for next month’s Reading List! Make sure you look for my post at the beginning of next month!
I know I mentioned Fabletics in another Friday Fun post, but I recently got my September outfit from them and thought I’d share. Fabletics is company founded by Kate Hudson that sends you a work-out type outfit every month. Even if you don’t work out but love stuff like leggings and yoga pants for running quick errands or days around the house, you’ll love the outfits they have! The prices are extremely reasonable (you get your first outfit for $25!) and the quality is really, really great. Much cheaper than Lululemon and I love it just as much.
You get to choose your outfit, or skip the month. I chose these cropped sweats, a pink sports bra and this loose grey shirt. The pants are SO comfortable. I love sweats but often feel like they are too baggy and pajama looking to run errands in. The crop of these makes them feel cuter and a bit more socially acceptable!
The top is super cute. Nothing too special from the front, but the back is cut out, adding a bit of interest. I’ve worn this shirt over a tank top (so my back isn’t hanging out all over town) and jeans and it’s cute for everyday wear.
This sports bra is what I loved the MOST, though. I do like to wear sports bras around the house — with a 10 year old, I don’t want to run around without a bra, but they get uncomfortable and I don’t like wearing them in the evening with my PJs. Most sports bras are so restricting and I basically have to PEEL myself out of them. Sometimes origami, advanced gymnastics, or praising to Lord Jesus are also involved in removal/application of said sports bra. NOT THIS ONE. It’s SO comfortable and goes right on and right off. I’ve never seen a sports bra that was so easy to take off. So, what I’m saying is – it’s life changing.
Sorry for talking about my bra so much, but you’ll thank me if you ever get this one.
Of course, other stuff happened this week besides my bra (awkward).
I shared this life changing cake! You need it, trust me on this.
My September Stitch Fix happened! Then I made my son take photos of me with my phone and he kept asking “Is this is last one?” and I kept saying, “Retake that last photo, you made me look fat.”
Junior Mint Cupcakes — they are basically a no-brainer.
Glazed Pumpkin Donuts — they bake up in under 10 minutes. Perfect weekend breakfast!
Enjoy, friends! Have a wonderful weekend!
