Five on Friday

July 6, 2018

It is Friday right?

We've been traveling so much I don't know up from down at the moment. But being back in my own bed for the weekend is glorious... over 9 hours of sleep last night.

So this week's favorites:

I finally broke down and ordered the Buffet serum from The Ordinary. I've loved every product I've used from them in the past so getting one that combines everything I want in a serum should make me just as happy.

In case you're wondering... I use (in this order) Teddie Organic Rose Hip Oil, whaterver serum, either CeraVe lotion or cream depending on day or night, then Neutrogena 100 SPF during the day. I was also topping off my night routine lately with a sample of Dermatologica Sound Sleep, its's okay but not worth the full price container of it. I'll stick to The Ordinary... and then my beloved RetinA once I'm done with pregnancy and nursing.

This made me laugh way too hard.

Harrison has gotten to the fun age of copying us in prayer. He also wants to sing "Jesus Loves Me" before bed and I won't even talk about how I've now sleep trained myself and start yawning when I sing it.


After two grandparents houses and not living what he deems his best life I caught him praying to watch Ninja Turtles before we got home. I looked over and his had his little hands clasped together and kept saying "watch turtles" over and over. So I said: "Harry are you praying that you can watch turtles?" His response: "Yes." And then continued to plead to Jesus that he could watch turtles... 3 year olds.

This baby is all up in my hip area and sciatic nerves. Some days I walk fine. Other days I might as well be 90. I don't know how much of this is just mom amnesia or what, but I don't remember Harrison tormenting me in this way before my 3rd trimester. This baby also takes zero breaks. I could get up during the night and sway around to knock Harrison back out to get more sleep, if I get up to potty I think I'm waking this one up. It immediately starts moving around and takes me forever to fall back asleep. Fingers crossed this isn't any indication of things to come.

I'm something frugal about products, my husband might disagree... but he exceeds my frugality. So with that said it took me months before I broke down to try out the Dry Bar Dry Shampoo. What finally made me do it was the Red Stick Moms Blog Bloom Event. The girl there curled my hair and added some in... and the next day my hair looked just washed. I can get by with other brands of dry shampoo, but this legit makes my greasy head not look greasy. So after a solid two months of using their travel size can and still not using it up I broke down and bought the big can. And y'all, I am not lying, this stuff if Christmas Miracle beauty product status. If you hate washing your hair everyday you definitely need some of it.

On a side note, I used the brunette version of Batiste for ages but couldn't after dying my hair. This doesn't leave the white cast I had issues with in other products so I don't even bother either their colored versions.

In other hilarious Harry things that I want to remember... he has discovered attempting to distract us by pointing out his "boo-boos." If we bring out the medicine... he points to the immense amount of boo-boos on his legs. Suggest he put on pajamas... boo-boos. Lotion, that just causes boo-boos. Yesterday took the cake though. We were at Chic-fil-a and I wanted him to eat at least one bite of food to play and get ice cream (shocker he got neither because stubborn is more important at the moment). Every time I suggested he eat a bite to go and play he had to display his recent boo-boos. I look like a nut in public because I'm trying to enforce something but giggling at the boo-boo distraction technique that doesn't work.
