Happy Friday, friends! It’s been a few weeks since I’ve chatted about 5 things I’m loving (I blame Thanksgiving travels, a little bit of sickness, and life in general), but this week I’m feeling holly jolly, loving all the things. It was actually hard to narrow it down to five, but here we go. Five things I’m loving this week, and I’d love to know – what’s bringing you guys joy this week?
PMD Clean – I’ve been a fan of the brand’s personal microderm device for a while but recently discovered the PMD Clean, and whoa. If you’re a Clarisonic girl like me, trust, it’s totally different, and for the record, I have and use both. The PMD Clean has a rubberized head (instead of the bristles of the Clarisonic) and vibrates like a facial massage. There are 4 speeds, and I’ve been using one side in the shower with favorite cleansers and the flip side out of the shower to help my favorite moisturizers sink in. If you’re going to invest in good skincare, this is a good tool to help that skincare sink in.
Rainy days in Southern California – In the past two weeks, we’ve had three whole days of rain around here. And not normal Southern California rain. Hard, hard rain with wind and skies that look like nighttime in the middle of the day. I grew up around SO. MUCH. RAIN in South Louisiana, and I’ve missed some of those days since moving here. These past two weeks have given me the first couple of days of staying in, keeping the PJ’s on, and getting so much work done inside during the rain. Besides a newfound roof leak that we never knew about since the remodel, it’s been so nice. But for the record, Louise the Viz is NOT about it. Good God, that puppy hates rain. (And if you need a good laugh, check out these Vizslas wearing boots. I die.)
Decking the halls – Oh holy moly, there’s nothing I love more than when our house is decked out for Christmas. Nothing. The trees, the stockings, the garland, the lights outside – it all makes me happy, happy, happy like Phil from Duck Dynasty. And hey, while we’re at it, I’ll throw in little Weeze wearing a Christmas sweater because that photo will be hitting the ‘gram soon. I’m working on a full post of our holiday decor because all these online orders and trips to HomeGoods need to be documented, right?
Packing up for Jackson Hole – You guys, I stand corrected. Wanna know what makes me happier than our house decorated for Christmas? It’s heading out to Jackson Hole. We went last winter and made another trip this past summer, and I’m so excited that we are headed back next week. This time around, it’s gonna be even COLDER than last year with a lot more snow, and I’m ready for it. I’ll be taking all of the cold weather essentials from last year and adding in a couple of new goodies. This bright red coat? Count it in. With this bright red sweater underneath? Yep. And this year, I’ll be adding in these cozy inserts into my favorite snow boots. Any other recommendations?
Skinny Pasta – I shared this one on my Instagram stories this week, and you guys were HERE for it. And I can’t blame you! If you’re trying to live that semi-healthy life or go low carb during the week like us, pasta has been a big no-no for years. Eric and I have been grubbing through so much spaghetti squash for a while, and honestly, we’re a little bit over it right now. I found this Skinny Pasta at Sprouts recently, and we love it. It’s the most pasta-like thing we’ve found, and unlike with spaghetti squash, it keeps us full long after dinner. Did I mention that one serving serves up five carbs and under ten calories? We loved it so much, I recently ordered the full variety of what they offer. The “rice” version is a little bit noodle-y, but throw some red beans in there, and you’ll be A-OK.
