Fiveday before a 3 day weekend = happiness!

Hey pretty people! Hope you had a fab week. Mine was good, went by a little slow, but hey it’s FINALLY Friday & I have no work Monday, so no complaints here! Not to much on deck this weekend, maybe a little geocaching aka checking another thing off my 30 before 30, but you know that I’ll be rooting on my Rangers in the Eastern Conference Finals game 4. Catch ya’ll Monday, xo! *warning LOTS of food pics ahead…get-attachment.aspx

Nothing like a full rainbow on a rainy, gloomy day!get-attachment.aspx



Sweet treat from a co-worker that hit the spot.


This mid week dessert has become my new favorite.


Dani’s egg bake and an iced coffee, it was a good Thursday morning.



My gorgeous babygirl.

Get Unready With Me!


First, I remove all of my eye make up with my favorite makeup wipes, Maybelline Fresh Clean. Then I use the Olay Out of this Swirled wash with my cute little Olay face scrubber.

For reviews of each of the Olay products, head over here & here.


Next up, I use the Clean and Clear acne serum on my trouble spots, aka my chin area. Then I follow up with this night repair cream I got from CVS. I’m still in the market for a night cream, so if you know of any good ones, let me know!



Finally, I brush my teeth with my favorite toothpaste combo, the new Crest 3D white brilliance and brilliance boost.



Then it’s time for pjs, a good book, oh and night time fresh faced selfies of course, xo!

I’ve decided I’d like to change the name of my blog. I want to domain it and become an actual .com and and most variations of it are taken. So I think it’s time I figure out a new name. keep calm & blog on was actually just a working title when I started this bad boy and I never thought of anything better to call it. So weigh in here and help me figure out a new name…or let me know if you think I should change the name at all…Okay into my five things!

It’s crazy what actually I can look like when I take time getting ready and am not rushing. Thanks extra 12 inches of snow for forcing me to be late for work  😉


Zoey likes the snow, but it’s getting to be hard for her to get around in.


The number of squats MK & I did in the last 30 days…#brazilianbuttsherewecome


I had a terrible, no good, very bad day on Wednesday that started with me spilling a latte on my uggs. Anyone have any tips for getting stains out?!?!
