February Favorites

1. Andrew's in school!

Well - technically, it's a program at our church called Parents Day Out.  He goes twice a week, and we all are loving it!  He is doing so well!  I'm left sobbing waving at the door as he runs in without batting an eye each morning at drop-off ;) 
This is a picture of his first day of school.

I have to admit, I kinda love being a "classroom" Mom!  I have loved reading his daily report cards, packing his lunch, bringing in classroom snacks, and making this year's valentines!

Speaking of Valentine's Day - this is how we celebrated!  Donuts with the fam!  (Andrew's first one ever - he was a fan!)  My faaaaaavorite donut spot in Memphis.

And because donuts aren't sweet enough ;), I had to make my favorite peanut butter cookie pie when we were invited to dinner with friends.
Recipe here!

Still aren't getting enough sugar? 
Here ya go. 

Ok, on to more favorites....

2. Beauty Loves

This has replaced any sort of foundation for me these past few months.  It's got great coverage, but does not feel heavy or cakey on the skin.  It color corrects like a dream, has SPF 50 and is moisturizing as well. Ulta carries this in a travel size, so you can try it before you put in the $ for the full size.  But I bet you'll be going back for more!  

I got this as a sample in my last Ipsy bag, and I've been wearing it every (makeup) day since.  It's so easy to apply, and the color is bold and long-lasting.  The felt tip is like a tiny sharpie for your eyes!  Fool-proof!

I didn't think I'd be writing about deodorant any time soon on the blog, but here I am.  And I've just got to share this one!  After hearing all the buzz about the harmful effects of aluminum in most deodorants, I thought I would try out a few 100% natural ones.  I have to admit, I was not only skeptical, but also a little weirded out.  Well, I tried out several, and was about to go back to my trusty Secret stick, but then I came across this one.  I looooove it.  The coconut vanilla is the best, and I get it from Sephora.  It's not cheap, but it's natural, smells great, works wonderfully, and I don't think I'll ever use another kind!  I highly recommend making the switch to an organic deodorant - especially since it's a product that is absorbed into the body on a daily basis. 

3. Firmoo Sunglasses 

My new shades!  The good folks at Firmoo kindly sent these sunglasses to me last week, and I have to say, I love them!  They are fun, stylish, and great quality for the price!  I think they will be a staple in my summer wardrobe :) My style is: Firmoo Sunglasses - C552A.  Stay tuned for a giveaway this week!  

4. Consignment Finds 

I've had a lot of fun (and luck!) at some local kids consignment sales lately!  Bargain hunting is kind of my favorite - thanks to my Mom who instilled that trait in me!  These are some of my cute finds...
P.S. How lucky that I found a mama with an "Andrew"!  ;)


Adorable shorts sets!

Hope y'all had a fabulous February!
Any favorites you had??
