The Friday Faves #13

Friday, March 29, 2019

It's Friday!
Is it me or did this week go really fast?
I'm linking up with Andrea, Narci & Erika today to bring you some of my favorite things from this past week.
Let's get to it!

We had some errands to run last weekend, so we popped in a home and appliance store to look around.
X was living his best life in these recliners!

That evening we grabbed some dinner with friends and then went bowling :)

Sunday....we did nothing.
I mean nothing.
And that was just what we all needed!

So Monday came and that meant I needed to order groceries!
Thank goodness for Kroger pickup!

On the blog this week I shared a couple of my favorite online stores and some of the items I order from them.

I joined my friends at The Blended Blog for a fun little Spring Blog Hop sharing what Spring looks to us :)

Wednesday I shared recent online purchases and recapped the month for What's Up March!

X spent the night at my dad's house Wednesday night, so when I picked him up yesterday I swung by my mom's house for a quick visit before heading back south.
She is the best!
She basically gave me her entire Spring FabFitFun box!
Look at those goodies!

Unplug Meditation Aromatherapy Diffuser & Happy Oil
Quay Australia Vivienne sunglasses in Black/Smoke
S'ip by S'well bottle
Tula Purifying Face Cleanser (this is the one I use every day!)
Ouai Leave In Conditioner
Dr. Brandt Skincare Needles No More No More Baggage Eye De-Puffing Gel
Manna Kadar Champagne Body Scrub

I snapped a screenshot of these new Crest toothpastes and grabbed them on my recent Target run.
I have only tried the Charcoal one so far, but I am loving it!

A few other things I saw on Instagram this week that I am loving...

I think I need this Uncommon James necklace in my life!

And these necklaces that Brooke @ KBStyled shared from The Sis Kiss are so cute!

Did you know that The Sis Kiss is from Cleveland,Ohio?
Now you do!
Go shop local my friends!

I loved watching the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!
Especially when all my faves used to be on there...Justin, Britney, Christina, JC, Kerri and more!
Look at this...

I sure hope they make this into a TV special!

And finally I saw this just this morning and laughed out loud a bit!
I can think of a few times X is just like me!

One more thing before I go, Blake Shelton's new song premiered this morning on the radio and I absolutely love it!!!

What are you up to this last weekend of March?
Let me know in the comments below :)

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Online Purchases & What's Up March!

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

What haven't I purchased online recently should be the real question! lol!
Well that isn't exactly true.
Other than a pair of shorts that I am about to share, I haven't ordered anything since mid-February.
But I do have online carts full of things I am still hesitant to hit submit order on ;)

I did receive these shorts last week in the mail, but I think I have to return them 😭

They are so cute!
But they are too big :( #perkofdoingfwtfl :)
They are currently sold out in most sizes, so I am trying to decide if I want them bad enough to leave them big or just return them.
What you do you think?

What have you been ordering online recently?
Share your items and link them up with us at The Blended Blog, or post to Facebook or Instagram and use #TBBStyle.

Now let's get on with What's Up Wednesday | March Edition!
Linking up with Sheaffer & Shay

What we're eating this week...
Bunless Philly cheese steaks
Chicken & Veggies

What I'm reminiscing about...

This picture popped up earlier this month for St. Patrick's Day!

Look at all that cuteness!!!
How was that 2012????

What I'm loving...

That the last month has been really good mentally, physically, etc. for my little family!

What we've been up to...

A lot and nothing all at the same time :/

What I'm dreading...

Nothing at the moment!

What I'm working on...

Trying not to go insane ;)
I'm currently working from home today and I can hear X bouncing a ball.
But really I'm working on this post, things for the office, and then I'm about to get my workout in for the day :)
So it's a good day!

What I'm excited about...

That we are starting to plan our summer vacation!
Better late than never!
I was pretty set on going to Destin, Florida again this year...but I'm just not feelin' it anymore.
So currently looking at other options to get away from home and where the masses go ;)

What I'm watching/reading....

Our DirectTV wasn't working right the other day, so I decided to see what Netflix had to offer.
Due to my love for teen dramas, and Luke Perry...I decided to give Riverdale a shot.
I'm hooked!

I don't like binge watching shows, but I finished season 1 in just a few days and I'm currently working my way through season 2.
I love it!

Meanwhile my DVR is now building up with episodes of The Blacklist, The Voice, etc.
And I would love to say I'm keeping up with my new books...but I'm not.
Riverdale is all that is going on with me right now. lol!

What I'm listening to...

My child whine...#justkidding
I have been listening to a lot of the new X Channels on the Sirius Radio app.
Basically all the 90's, 2000's and today's workout mixes.
Here is a sample of some of the songs I love to hear while working out or driving around in my car right now...

And this is currently my favorite song/video out right now...

What I'm wearing...

Lots of green during the month of March ☘

Just some pants/jeans I haven't worn in over a year!!! 😁😁

Unfortunately, they aren't $5 this week but they are 3 for $20!

What I'm doing this weekend...

Celebrating a friend's little girl turning 7 with a donut party :)

We are heading to watch some of the Alumni basketball tournament!
And then dinner with friends :)

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

Spring soccer starting for X!
He actually has practice this week.

Pictures at the Easter Basket

And better weather!

What else is new...

I'm finishing up Round 2 of Faster Way to Fat Loss and I'm truly amazed by all the changes I have had!
I am already signed up for VIP starting on April 1st.
It's not too late to join a round or join me in VIP!
Shoot me any questions you may have or head here to sign up and join me :)

Coming Soon!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Spring Blog Hop

Tuesday, March 26, 2019

Today I'm participating in a fun little blog hop to share some favorite Spring things.
Clothing, decor, food, etc.

My favorite thing about Spring are the sports!
We technically are a year round sports family.

Now I'm not going to lie...Spring isn't really a season I love.
The temps finally start going up, but it is usually rainy and muddy.
Not something I really enjoy.


As a parent, Spring means watching X play soccer.
Remember, I don't enjoy soccer....but I love watching him play and do things he loves!

We are looking forward to soccer practices and games starting this week!

Now baseball/softball season is usually reserved for early summer in Ohio,
MLB and high school play them in the Spring!
I used to be a huge baseball fan, but over the years it has taken a backseat to life.
But I do try to get to a game with my dad at least once a season :)

And Cleveland is hosting the All Star game and festivities this year!

And there is my undying love for softball.
I played since I was about 6 years old all the way through high school.
I miss those days...

I also missing being/looking that young! ;)

Spring also means trips to the Easter basket back home to get our annual picture :)

What do you love most about Spring?
I would love to hear it in the comments below!

And make sure you hop on over to see what Shelly @ The Queen In Between is sharing!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Favorite Online Stores | TBB Asks

Monday, March 25, 2019

Hello! My name is Vanessa and I have a problem.
I love ordering from Amazon ;)
I order anything from books to vitamins,
from clothes to toys,
and so much more!
They literally offer everything!

Some of my favorite Amazon finds are the workout attire they offer.
The Amazon Essentials brand is nice quality and the prices can't be beat!

The sports bras are great for Yoga or more light impact activities.
They come in multiple colors and are 2 for $20!
The racerback tanks also come in a 2 pack and are only $18!
They are super lightweight, run true to size, and also come in a variety of color options.
I love capri workout leggings and these are a great fit for just $20.
They come in 7 colors and they are not see through ;)

What items do you order from Amazon?

My other favorite store to order online from is J.Crew Factory!
This is wear I get almost all of my shorts.
They fit well, and hold up really well!
I have had mine for years and they still look and fit just like when I purchased them.

I have them in multiple colors too!
The orange ones are one of my favorite pairs, but they come in more subtle shades as well.
They also come in a few different inseams, so if you are thinking the ones above are a bit too short they have longer ones to keep you covered ;)
Check out all the shorts they offer here.
Today they have a 24 Hour Flash Sale going on!
Things are 50% and then an additional 20% (including clearance) with code EXTRAEXTRA.
It's the perfect time to stock up!

Have you ordered from J.Crew Factory before?

Neither of these sites know of me, so there is no kickback to me for promoting Amazon or J.Crew Factory.
I just love them :)

What are some of your favorite places to shop online?
