Snapshot Saturday: Three of My Favorite Things

For the record, I’d like to state that I’m still cool enough and strong enough to push a tire swing so fast that my boys scream like little girls and beg for just one more push.

And now that we’ve got that out of the way, I’d like to share three of my favorite things lately.

Warning: this list is as random as it gets but all of these things are fantastically awesome and need to be shared with the world.
(P.S. I’m not affiliated with any of these companies or products other than the fact that I can’t imagine life without them.)

1) Klutz Face Painting Book:

This just might be one of the funnest kid-items (heck, it’s great for adults, too!) we own and we use it all the time so don’t be alarmed if you run into us at the store and my kids have a killer whale painted on their cheeks. My dear friend, Jenna, gifted this book to us years ago and we still are getting good use out of it. In fact, just last week, I bribed my cute neighbor to let me paint her face like a butterfly since no one in my house has chosen that design yet (shocker). I know, don’t quit my day job, right? But still, she loved it and her sweet mom wheeled Miss C around in the stroller while I worked on the masterpiece outside on our front steps so it was a win-win for all.

2) My Life Planner:

Yes, I realize that I’m completely old school in that I still prefer to paper-plan versus electronic-plan. I can’t get behind the phone or app calendars because I still love having a paper planner sitting right in front of me. This planner from Erin Condren has revolutionized keeping our schedules organized. I just can’t even begin to express how much I love it. There are labels and color-coordination pens and bookmarks and glorious colored tabs. Basically, there’s a whole lot to love even though Brian pulls the I-feel-like-the-3rd-wheel-card every time I plop down on the couch next to him for date night-movie night with my planner and colored pens in hand. Anytime is a good time to calendar.

3) Korr Lip Butter:

I don’t wear a lot of makeup and the whole makeup industry scares and confuses me. I kind of stick to mascara and call it good. However, my very classy makeup-knowledgeable friend, Jen, gave me some of this lip butter last summer and I.Am.Hooked. I feel like I’m all dressed up with nowhere to go when I’m wearing it and I keep it with me at all times. It’s not too tacky and sticky (which I hate in some lip glosses) but adds the perfect amount of shine and gloss while still moisturizing. Love, love, love. I have the Jasmine and Mango and oh my gosh, I just saw that the Jasmine is only $5 which is way less than when I bought it a few weeks ago. Buy some now.

And on a closing note, I just have to share a picture of this pumpkin lounging on the couch. I mean, with a body and hair like that, wouldn’t you think you owned the place, too?

Thanks for sticking with me through the randomness today. Have a great weekend!
