Life Lately

by Ally- Life as I know it, 5:00 AM
We were gone all weekend in Atlanta visiting Theo's brother and sister in law and their 3 kids. We had a great time but I didn't take one single picture! We were also visiting with plans to buy a new car and get the baby's crib. I traded in my teeny tiny Kia Rio and got a brand new Ford Explorer! 

I got my mom mobile! It's so weird going from driving the smallest car ever to this big bus but I think I'll manage! 

Last week was my birthday and Theo surprised me with a doughnut cake from Glazed!

It's a Chocolate Peanut Butter Doughnut Cake and it was amazing. My friend Allison owns Glazed so if you're in the area and looking for an awesome birthday cake give her a call! They can make lots of other flavors too.

I mentioned awhile back about my skin being insane since I've been pregnant. I'm talking the worst acne of my life. I researched a safe skincare for pregnancy and started using the Eminence line months ago. I didn't really notice a difference at first but since I've started mixing the moisturizer and the serum together then applying, it's worked miracles. My skin still isn't safe to go out in public without makeup but it's 10 times better than it was. I only use 3 things. I use the Clear Skin Probiotic Cleanser twice a day

Then I mix the moisturizer and the serum together and apply that morning and night as well. 

I really like this line because everything is truly natural and organic. It isn't cheap but to me skincare is one of those things that if you can find something that works well, it's worth the money.

I've been indulging in this every night after dinner. 

I know, I know it's bad but I just look at it as my extra 300 calories for the day. I've yet to try any other Talenti flavors because I can't stop buying this one but I've heard they're all good!

Have y'all seen the video about The Empty Pickle Jar? It's a really neat video about what really matters in life.
