one. Did anyone else take advantage of the huge Bath & Body Works sale this week? It was buy two candles, get two candles free plus $10 off $30 purchase. My new favorite scent is WINTER. It legitimately smells like winter and is so amazing I had to buy two!
two. Caroline and I made my favorite two ingredient pumpkin bread for her and Thomas’s teachers this week. I was skimming through the comments and a few readers said they added an egg so I tried that and loved the extra fluff it gave our mini loafs!
three. PSA for all contact users!!! I thought I shared this amazing solution with y’all like a year ago but it turns out I didn’t. Sorry! Anyway, a long time ago Thomas’s contact lens specialist told us we should be using Clear Care Contact Solution for cleaning contacts and that it’s really the best and most effective solution out there. This stuff is seriously so magical. You can SEE it working when you drop your contacts into the solution and it deep cleans Thomas’ contacts SO well. And Matt uses it too and always comments on how much better this solution cleans his contacts than the stuff he used to use. Anyway, we have this solution stock piled under the sink. If you’re not using it, you should! You can buy it at Target, Amazon, etc. Oh, and warning…you must abide by the 6 hour soaking rule or you’ll be sorry.
four. We had new master bathroom countertops installed this week (post coming soon!) and Matt installed our faucets himself (go Matt!). Y’all sent me the most hilarious messages in response to my insta-stories post of me keeping Matt company/supervising late into the night of faucet installations! I also had a lot of questions about 1. where I purchased our wreath from (I made it! post here!) and 2. If our bed always looks that perfect. The answer is yes. And it’s 100% Matt. He loves to make the bed every morning. NOTE: Our perfectly made bed is NOT indicative of the tidiness of the rest of our house!
Five. Two dresses you need to know about! And thanks to Matt, I’ve got some non-mirrored selfies for ya…
Dress #1: I found this gorgeous burgundy dress (under $50) for my Christmas card photo shoot next weekend! I’ll swap out flats for booties but seriously, how cute is this dress?! Now I need to find something for the rest of the family to wear!
Dress (wearing size small, runs large)
Dress #2: Another dress from Romwe, this Fluted Sleeve Gingham Dress is $17 and I LOVE the open tie back. Also, I was more impressed on the quality of this dress.
That’s all for today! Have a wonderful weekend, friends! xo
