This week went way too fast. It’s always that way when you’re having the best time on vacation right? I think so! My parents and I have been having the best week together – getting in family workouts (my mom is a yoga teacher), cooking up yummy food and just generally enjoying each other’s company. It has been SO good for the soul to be home. I even got to see my in-laws for brunch and got a manicure with Dane’s mom. It only further validates that Dane and I want to move closer to family sooner rather than later 🙂
Now, let’s talk all things 5 on Friday!
1.I discovered Humm Kombucha while I was browsing the grocery store with my mom. Traveling so much puts my gut in a major bind – no fun! Sorry is that TMI? Anyway, Kombucha is pretty mainstream and easy to find, so I make it my mission to try new ones I discover everywhere I go. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it 😉 In any case, the packaging (I’m a sucker for a good label) and flavor caught my eye immediately. It was really good! Have you tried it?
2. Is anyone else feeling super disenchanted with Instagram lately? I feel like the algorithms that keep rolling out are only showing me more content I DON’T want to see. What the hell?! Half the time I log in and see photos I’ve already liked from 3-5 days ago, other times I see suggested people that I really don’t want to see or follow. I don’t get it. The only thing giving me life over there are the stories! Hopefully this is just a passing phase and I’ll be back to posting soon!
3. There are so many yummy recipes coming to the blog thanks to spending so much time with my sweet mom. She’s a FREAKING AMAZING cook and I always walk away from her kitchen feeling so inspired. I already shared the Roasted Stuffed Butternut Squash, but there’s more where that came from! Lots of fall goodness is on the way!
4. I’m working on a super fun project with Wayfair to redesign our living room! I talked a little bit before about our unfortunate couch situation, but when we sold our house – all the furniture went with it! I created a mood board with Wayfair to get my creative wheel turning and I’m majorly excited to see how everything turns out. All my top picks are being featured over on Wayfair, so if you’re also in the market – feel free to hop over and check them out!
5. One day this week my mom and I were cleaning out her makeup closet (it’s very impressive) and I started messing around with all the different products she has. Things got a little crazy after I attempted contouring, eyebrow pencil, lip liner and half a dozen other YouTube recommendations. I was legitimately just screwing around so I posted some of the shenanigans on Instagram stories and I laughed out loud when half a dozen people thought I was being serious.
On that note, I am off for a weekend full of football and friends in State College to watch the Michigan vs. PSU game. Let’s Go State!
