Monday Randoms

I had intentions of having a blog post up on Friday but Theo forgot to bring his laptop home Thursday night so I had no way of writing it. So instead, this is a Monday post!

We had a pretty low key weekend. The highlight of the weekend was going to dinner Saturday night at R. Kitchen. I highly recommend it if you're local. It was our second time going and it was just as good as the first time, maybe better! The menu changes nightly and the chefs cook the food right in front of you. It's a fun atmosphere too, yet small, they only have seats for I believe 16 people. I personally really like that about it. You're able to talk to the chefs and the other restaurant guests one on one.

 My dress is now on sale for $66! I'm in a size medium.

I started using the Beautycounter Overnight Resurfacing Peel and I LOVE it! Everyone who used it always raved about it and I was honestly so happy with the M-61 Power Peels that I didn't think anything else could compare. But, I really do notice such a difference in my skin the next morning after using it. Acne scars seem to be less noticeable each day and my skin just overall looks smoother and more even-toned. My skin has become so sensitive as I've gotten older that I have to be super careful what I put on it so it's always nice to find something that works well!

I found the best deal at Target this week. Oliver has been all about pretend cooking lately and wants to use all my mixing bowls to play with, which would lead to a disaster since they're glass! We headed to Target to find him a play pots and pans set and I stumbled down the Clearance aisle and found this play kitchen for $38! There was no question, I had to buy it. He just loves and it's super cute. Isn't it the best feeling when you find a great deal?

Anyone do any President's Day shopping? I bought these jeans since I'm only down to one pair that I wear now and I've been wanting some boyfriend style jeans. I swear Madewell has the best jeans! And then I got this top from Tuckernuck that I've been eyeing and I was sent a 10% off coupon so figured now was a good time to buy it. This dress is on the top of my wish list right now. Such a classy, versatile dress!

A cold has been going around our family this week, Theo had it first then I got it, luckily none of the kids have gotten it- yet! I've been practically chugging my Elderberry syrup to hopefully knock it out quickly and it seems to be working. I'm a big believer in Elderberry in our house. Whenever Oliver has the slightest sign of a cold coming on, I give it to him twice a day and he's much better in hours. I know it seems crazy but there's a reason it's been around for decades as being known as "nature's flu shot."

I'll leave you with the most precious picture Caitlyn Motycka took of my angels:
