Weekly Recap: Oct. Week 3

It’s 6:18 a.m. and I’m sitting on an airplane, staring at my computer screen, trying to get my brain to wake up.  I’m so tired and, honestly, I feel kind of hyper-sensitive. I’m an anxious flier and it’s even worse when I’m flying solo.  Also, I’m pretty sure I’m about to start my period. yay.

My kids’ fall break ends today so they head back to school tomorrow.  We had the BEST week; I love when they’re out of school!   Today, I’m headed to Rhode Island for a quick work trip with Red Dress Boutique. I love their items and their staff so much and, bonus,  some of my very best friends in the blogging community will also be there.  I do wish, however, that I could have packed Kyle and this kids in my suitcase.  I was an emotional mess leaving them this morning.  It probably doesn’t make sense, but I’m excited for this trip, but I’m also excited to get back home.

Also, I can’t believe Halloween is next week and then November is here.  Like, wow, this year has F L O W N by!  Before we know it, it’s time to put up our Christmas trees!  Which, speaking of, since renovating our house we realized that we don’t have anywhere to put a tree.  That’s another story that I’ll have to share with y’all soon. lol.

p.s. If I haven’t told y’all lately (which I’m pretty sure I haven’t), I LOVE THIS COMMUNITY so much!  I’m so grateful for each of you who take time out of your day to read whatever mumbo-jumbo I’m rambling about.  I love you.  Mean it.

Here’s this week’s Weekly Recap:


** This Urban Decay discounted set from QVC was a BIG seller this week! The set is a little pricey, but MUCH cheaper than buying the items individually.  I ordered one to gift for the holidays and one for myself.  Available HERE.

** This sherpa Camo jacket that I wore to Colorado! It’s on sale for $29.99.  It’s really cute and very comfy! When we left for our trip, I had a woman at the airport and a woman on the plane ask me where I got it.  It’s true to size and available HERE.

** My Amazon curling iron.  This was a random find, but I LOVE IT! I’ve been using the same Hot Tools curling iron forever and it was time for a new one, but I needed something quick.  Grabbed this one and fell in LOVE! I’ve been using the 3/4″ barrel.  Available HERE.

** These Amazon leggings made the list, yet again. They are SO GOOD!!! True to size and available HERE.

** The Palmers Facial Scrub. This was also going to be my Product of The Week, but I’ll share it here since it made the Best Sellers List.  It’s good, it’s affordable, and it’s pretty clean in regards to ingredients.  Use 1-2 times a week. Makes my face feel SO SMOOTH!! Available HERE.

** The Wedge Sneakers from JCP!  Three color options.  If between sizes, go down.  They’re very comfy; I have the black and the cognac.  Available HERE.

    Hey Jen,

    So first of all, I want to say that I have enjoyed following you for over a year now! I love the joy that you bring to Instagram and I love how you share your faith! You truly help to inspire me to be the best version of myself and to help bring that out in others!

    I know this is a long shot, but there are a ton of girls that my church works with who are in great need of clothes. They are the absolute sweetest, but life just hasn’t dealt their families the best hand. We absolutely love that they have been open to attending church and all the activities we have to offer, but I want to try to do more.

    I know you already donate a lot of your clothing locally, but I wanted to see if there would be ANY way to have some of the clothing sent to us for these girls? They are so grateful when a friend and I are able to clean out our closets, but we’re only two people and we don’t have access to the volume that you do!

    I’m sure you get emails like this all the time, but I wanted to reach out because this is something near and dear to my heart. If there’s any way you’d be willing to work with me on this, I (and the girls) would be forever grateful!

    I hope you have an amazing and restful rest of your Sunday. Looking forward to hearing from you!
