Good morning, happy Friday, and Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed ringing in the New Year in their own special way. Ours included being in bed by 10:30.
Without further adieu, let’s get into this week’s round of Friday Favorites. I hope you have a great weekend!
Friday Favorites #2
I get a lot of compliments on my hair ‘do. I think it’s just because girls normally have long hair, and people notice when something [or someone] is a little different. Regardless, people are normally shocked when I tell them that I go to Hair Cuttery and pay $16 for my ‘do. It’s where I went when I first got it chopped off, and it’s where I’ve continued to go. My stylist, Anna, is the best; and if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
When I got my hair cut a few weeks ago, Anna suggested this oil treatment and I’ve been really pleased with the results thus far. Like I said in the last favorites post, my hair has been SO DRY this winter, and I’ve been lucky to find a few products that have helped combat the dryness.
This was one of my Christmas presents from Cory, and I’m so excited about it. I love the message behind the lokai bracelet: The black bead is infused with elements from The Dead Sea, while the white bead is infused with elements from Mt. Everest; the lowest and highest points on Earth, respectively. The lokai message is that we need to remain hopeful at our lowest points and humble at our highest points. For me, the bracelet is a reminder to always keep a positive perspective. If you know me, you know that’s what I’m all about!
I was so stoked when we opened this present from my parents on Christmas Eve! It was a top item on our registry, and I’m so thankful they gifted us something a little early. It’s a video baby monitor that connects to an app on your phone, so you can hear and see the baby. We’ve hooked it up and used it to watch Penny a few times while we’ve been out, but I’m ready to use for more than my fur baby 😉

I didn’t even know this existed until Emily got it for Christmas! We canceled our gym membership a few months ago, and the only part that really stung for me was that I’d be missing my Body Pump classes. Well, for a $100, I just bought this set [it includes weights, the bar, the bar clips, and seven Body Pump DVDs!] Now I can save money by not having a gym membership while also getting to do Body Pump at home. That’s a major win, my friends.
[Edit to add: I know that link kind of looks spammy, and the “3 payments of $33.33” didn’t sit well with me at first, but you can totally make a one-time payment upfront. Mine has been delivered and there was nothing spammy about it. Just FYI! ]
