Strawberry Picking

^ Strawberry picking from last weekend.

Jordan and I had a pretty picturesque weekend and whenever we have several days off together (even when we’re still working on projects) I have a difficult time transitioning back to a normal schedule. Our time as a twosome is coming to an end and I’m soaking it all up.

My 33 week appointment was yesterday and the reality of Baby Yoshi’s arrival being in single digits is finally settling in. I began the paperwork needed for my leave and while I’m so thankful I have leave, trying to get all of my questions answered has been challenging! I was transferred to three different departments and I’m still waiting on a few answers.

To top it all off, I ruined several of Jordan’s shirts in the wash when I spilled bleach all over the floor yesterday afternoon. To say I’m looking forward to the weekend is an understatement.

Onto the links!

Roadtrip Essentials / / Tracy’s organizational posts are some of my favorite to read because she visually breaks down her tips in an easy to follow way. I’m planning on ordering her car organizer straight away!

Mexican Brunch Salad / / I was eating sweet potatoes like it was job until Thanksgiving when all of a sudden the thought of them made me nauseous. Apparently, my aversion has subsided because this recipe looks and sounds delicious.

Light Bases for Spring + Summer / / I wear make up everyday (nothing fancy, it takes me all of five minutes). No matter how many hours I sleep my under eye circles are purple and just looking at them makes me drowsy! HAHA. This IT Cosmetics concealer is my current favorite, but I’m on the hunt for a new foundation. What foundations are you loving right now?

The Best Cheap Face Masks / / Sleep has been tricker this week and it’s resulted in tired and dull skin. I have one tiny sample size face mask but I think it’s time to start incorporating more masks into my weekly routine. What masks do you regularly use?

Spending Your June: Adventuring Through The Month / / Chelsea’s month lists always give me great ideas. June’s in particular resonates with me probably because it’s our last month pre-baby! Do you create summer bucket lists?

Happy Weekend, all!

  1. You are just darling picking strawberries.
    I’ve had weeks like that – where everything goes wrong – and the weekend is like a breath of fresh air. Hoping your weekend is just the ticket for you!

    Thanks so much for sharing my post. I’m so glad you enjoyed it.

  2. I’m a big fan of making to-do lists. I am more likely to accomplish something if I write it down. I’ve enjoyed Charles Duhig’s tips in his book, “Smarter Faster Better.” He says to put the most important thing you want to get accomplished each day at the top of your list.

  3. The bleach disaster sounds awful! That’s the kind of thing that leaves me crying on the corner of the couch. haha. Nothing gets me tearier than helpless, frustrating situation! Glad the weekend was rejuvenating though. I love strawberry season and remember growing up going to the field near my house every spring. You are looking amazing, and can’t wait til soon you’ll be posting photos of Baby Yoshi out in the world!!

    1. It was so frustrating, especially because the shirts had to be replaced. This is what happens when you have a minimal wardrobe…haha. You can’t afford to lose half of it in one day!
