Cleaning up before she goes to bed is a total waste of time, she is CONSTANTLY on the move and loves to play with everything! I am really enjoying this stage, but it is exhausting:)

Maybe its just that time of the year, but I am craving spring!! It feels like the winter has been here forever, and despite what that little groundhog said it is FREEZING!
I love all things Anthro, who doesn't really? A few of these casual, and totally reasonably priced, tops would be so sweet to transition into a "warmer" state of mind.
Here's to hoping that spring is on its way!

We had a great weekend, with two birthday celebrations, church and a Sunday full of baking (although I wish it was filled with bacon!)
Saturday we attended a "first fiesta" for a sweet little friend who we met through moms club, and whose mom is also in the JLW (so funny what a small world the league can be)! They are from San Antonio and the decor was adorable, the birthday girl even had a proper "fiesta dress" on. I wish I had taken pictures of the decor, my girlfriend had custom papel picado banners made with the birthday girls name in them, and the vibrant colors were so pretty!
After the fiesta we headed straight out to my besties house to celebrate her 30th. I made some of my favorite golden cupcakes and got her a pair of earrings from Fornash that i knew she had been eyeing for some time. Her son (my godson) is 2 and as busy moms we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than in yoga pants and slippers with mimosas and cheap wine, ha! Hubs was our dd and we made it home for an early bedtime.
Ms Peanut and her godmommy, can you believe she doesn't highlight her hair!!! God given natural blonde, love to hate her for this:)
Baby girl made cupcakes in her kitchen for "dada"
The weekends always fly by in a blink. Hope you and yours had a great one!

I try to find balance with health/wellness and beauty products. I've never not gone to a doctor in favor of a homeopathic treatment but I think that adding something natural or homeopathic is often helpful. I take advil but also have acupuncture and use arnica, it's all about balance. This is the approach I am trying to take toward skincare.
Do any of you take prim rose oil capsules? I have been reading a lot about anti aging benefits taking these can have so I am hoping to adding them to my regime!
I started using Retin A two weeks ago and I kid you not I can already see a difference! It's pretty harsh at first and a bit drying until you figure out exactly the right "pearl size" for your skin but my skin is already smoother and I am hoping it helps with my crows feet (recovering tanorexic here). It helps with acne, acne scars, hypo pigmentation and wrinkles!! You need a prescription but I am just not ready to start fillers and this seems like a great place to start. Be careful in the sun if you are using it and stick to threading or plucking since your skin is a bit thinner, but if you are looking to start with some anti aging prescription products I would absolutely recommend this!
What kind of skincare approach do you have??
