What's Up February & Style Link Up

Wednesday, February 27, 2019

Happy Wednesday!
I took the last couple of days off the blog just because..and it felt great!
But I am back today and ready to go with What's Up February!!!

What we're eating this week...

Breakfast for dinner
Bunless Philly cheese steaks
Chicken sausage and potatoes
Taco Bowls
And probably going out this weekend

What I'm reminiscing about...

That sweet profile is already a few years old :(

I shared this bag earlier this month, but you must get one for yourself!
This collaboration only happens about twice a year.
Make sure you are following Rooted Leather & Little Mugshots for when they will be open for orders!
This is the perfect thing for you or as a gift!

What I'm loving...

The FWTFL program that I started at the beginning of the year.
It has seriously been life changing for me!
Head here to hear about my results thus far!

What we've been up to...

Anything and everything! lol!
Indoor soccer games, 

Birthday parties

Snow tubing with friends,

X went to his first Cleveland Cavaliers game

Bowling and dinner with friends

School Valentine's Day Party

The Kane Brown concert 

What I'm dreading...

Absolutely nothing :)

What I'm excited about...

My new Revlon One Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer.
I have only used it once with wet hair, and twice with dry hair...but I love it!
I have super fine hair that typically tangles 3 seconds after I brush it.
Round brushes usually aren't my friend either.
My hair gets so caught in them that I can be in tears trying to get it out.
I watched quite a few YouTube videos before picking this thing up.
Again, my hair is super fine so it doesn't give it a huge amount of volume. hair was SO SO shiny and smooth after using it!
I almost liked my hair straight ;)
Mic even said he has never seen my hair look like it did!
It is kind of bulky, but I think that feeling will go away the more I use it and get used to it.
It totally eliminates the need for a hair dryer and separate brush!
Honestly, I loved it so much I convinced the receptionist at our office to get one and I ordered one for my mom :)
Sure hope they like it!

This is after just washing and then drying my hair before heading to bed.
It is SO smooth and shiny!!!

What I'm watching/reading...

A Million Little Things of course!
If you aren't watching it you are missing out!
Also...This Is Us, The Masked Singer, and The Blacklist.
I'll start watching The Voice once they narrow it down a bit.

Reading much of anything has taken a backseat these days.
I can barely keep up with the blogs I love so much :(

What I'm listening to...

All things Kane Brown!

I also decided to give a couple podcasts a try.
Currently listening to Hello Baby with Angela & Matt Lanter,

and Whine Down with Jana Kramer.

What I'm wearing...

I ordered this super cute necklace from Apricot Lane and I love it!
It is my favorite quote/saying :)

I scored this super cute heart sweater on Amazon and it has been on repeat all month long :)

 I remixed a few ways to wear this combination of colors and patterns

I rocked this oh so 90's look to X's Valentine's Day party

 I received my new Ohio camo hat and have been wearing it every chance I get!

 And I rocked my new Metallica tee with some black skinny jeans, hooded faux leather jacket and some combat boots to the Kane Brown concert.

And I just wore this Hello striped sweater that I scored for $9 at Walmart!
It is the perfect sweater for Spring!

What I'm doing this weekend...

Looks like X will have a double header for indoor soccer this weekend.

What I'm looking forward to next month...

St. Patrick's Day!!!
Honestly, it is one of my very favorite holidays!
It must be a Cleveland thing!
Some schools even close for the parade...everyone you know is celebrating.
It's just a great day!

We even had a St. Patty's party last year!

What else is new...

I picked up these Sally Hansen INSTA-DRI Matte polishes and I am in love!!!
I always use the Sally Hansen polishes and these are just as great!

And I have a Disney Giveaway going on right now!
Head here to win a copy of one of these great movies for your family!

Bonus Question: What is your favorite board game to play with your kids?

We don't really play board games, but we do love playing UNO together!

The Friday Faves #8

Friday, February 22, 2019

Is it Friday for real?
I am starting to think my child will never have a 5 day school week again!
Or at least not while winter is still here :/

Most of you know I crave routine during the week, so when school gets cancelled in the middle of the week everything goes crazy!
Or maybe it is just me...but same difference ;)

Thankfully, it is Friday!
And that means it is time to celebrate my favorite moments/things from this past week!

I kicked off my weekend by helping some seriously cute 1st graders celebrate Valentine's Day at their school party. 

They passed out their valentines, played a couple of games,

and enjoyed these super yummy donuts!

 The school gym teacher was being deployed to Korea over the weekend, so all the kiddos ended the party early to sing and say/wave goodbye in the hallway.
It was so sweet!

I had to document my "so Vanessa" outfit that I wore on Friday.
This is so similar to something I would wear in the late 90's!

Friday night we joined our good friends for dinner at Wokano!
It's one of my favorite places to eat!

The kiddos loved it, and the balloon animals our chef made for them :)

Saturday we headed north for our last regular schedule soccer game.
It was a short, but great season.
Side note: Our coach was also traveling to Korea for deployment, but still showed up for these kids despite leaving the very next day.

X had another great game :)

It was so fun watching these kiddos play together.
And I figured out one thing while watching this game....I still don't like soccer, but indoor is SO MUCH BETTER than outdoor soccer! lol!

Sunday night we bundled up and joined our friends for some glow tubing at Snow Trails!

Thank goodness for that ramp/belt that moves you to the top!

My little ninja just wasn't feeling the heights or the speed of tubing.
He braved it for three runs and then called it quits.

I took one more turn in the single lane, and then swamped out with Mic to hang with X.

So much fun with some of our favorite people!

On the blog this week I shared my Round 1 results from FASTer Way to Fat Loss!
You must check it out!

I also linked up with my Blended Blog ladies and shared some pieces from my closet that always receive rave reviews from everyone!

Remember how I shared last week that I bought that camo Ohio hat?
Well, it arrived this week and it is even better than I thought it would be!

I just can't help myself when it comes to camo, so I ordered these Birkenstock dupes for this summer too ;)

In other news....the reason my post is so late today is because I was waiting for these photos from Mic!
Awhile back we bought some tickets for Mic and X to attend a Cleveland Cavaliers game through a fundraiser.
This was his first NBA game and he was so scared!
We knew the seats were nose bleeders and he is terrified of heights!
I swear he tried making himself sick yesterday so he wouldn't have to go.

In walks the savior in my X's eyes...Mic's second cousin!
He works for the CAVS and was able to upgrade their seats!
Thank you, thank you! 🙏🙏

They got to hangout on the court before the game started,

check out the first row,

and even be on the court when the players ran out!!!

 They then settled in about 5-6 rows off the court!
Talk about an amazing first time at a CAVS game!!!
Oh, and they were on TV...the entire game!!!

X and Mic both had such a great time!
X is already asking when he can go back! lol!

Before I go, I wanted to share some things I found on social media this week that I just love!

For all my Ohio peeps...check this out!

Yes, Yes, Yes to this!!! 

You might have grown up in the 90's (or you are now using eye cream) if...

And last, but certainly not least...I was so shocked and excited to see one of my favorites like and comment on my Instagram posts!
Thank you so much Angela!

And that my friends is it!
I am looking forward to a night out with Mic at the Kane Brown concert this weekend, and otherwise just chillin'!
What are your weekend plans?

Thanks for stopping by today!
Linking up with The Blended Blog, Andrea, Narci & Erika!

XOXO ~ Vanessa
