Friday Favorites



Happy Friday Guys! 

I'm so excited the weekend is here -- the weather is supposed to be picture perfect so I'm gearing up for some trips down to the waterfront and the park tomorrow and Sunday! Living in Buffalo in the summertime is just wonderful because there's so many activities to do outside and I don't have to worry about melting in the heat! Or applying sunscreen to the girls and myself every 20 minutes or so! 

I have a lot going on lately and that's why I've been kinda quiet on the blog front.  My husband has been on a business trip for work over the past two weeks, plus my parents went on vacation to visit my brother and his fianc√© in Georgia, so I've been flying solo for what feels like WEEKS and WEEKS! 

But I'm back today with my Friday Favorites because well, I need to blog so I can relax for a few while the littlest is fighting a nap (hello TWO HOURS of playing in her pack and play, me going in and snuggling, laying her back down, rinse and repeat TEN times) and while the biggest is grocery shopping with grammy! So here we go!

WAHM Life
I started a new business. Well, not my OWN business per se, but I've signed on as an Independent Consultant for Jamberry and I couldn't be more excited! I'm not planning on bombarding my blog and social media accounts with Jam stuff, but I will be dropping things here and there so people have the opportunity to see what beautiful nails you can have AT home, done BY you! (Shameless plug -- check out laurenwhite.jamberry.com if you want to see ALL of the gorgeous nail wraps, lacquers, and gels!) The reason behind me starting this new venture? I need to feel independent -- I need to feel like I'm contributing to the family finances. My husband is amazing for working all the hours he does and if I'm going to be running Target once a week (or day), I feel like I need to be bringing in some money! 
This is Jamberry's gel in Beauty Sleep! 

5th Wedding Anniversary

Last week my husband and I celebrated our FIFTH wedding anniversary! What wonderful things have come our way in the past five years -- a home, two sweet girls, lots of memories, and a move 1200 miles from Tampa back to Buffalo! We technically haven't "celebrated" yet, but he did buy me the most stunning anniversary band that I will be sharing the details on very soon! He knows my love for fine jewelry, so I actually received the ring last month and have been wearing it ever since! I know the traditional 5 year anniversary gift is wood, so I've yet to find something for him. Slacker, I know.  So if you have any cute Etsy shops that sell something that's not too girly, let me know! A gift is better late than never, right?

Naptime

I never thought I'd say it, but I actually LIKE that my biggest little doesn't take a nap anymore.  Sure, by early evening she's simply exhausted, but I've been loving the time one-on-one with her.  I admit, she did watch a little bit too much television last week, but that was because I had to get some things around the house done and I had to do some work for Jamberry.  Elizabeth loves helping me put Katherine down for a nap -- she'll lay out her blanket, give her sister kisses and a hug, and then she begs me to let her close the door to her sister's room. Oh and when naptime is over, E HAS to be the one to open the door and wake her up. It's precious.  I have some fun things planned for naptime activities that I'll be sharing next week! 

The Bold Type

I admit it.  I like LOVE reality television. But every now and again, I get sick of the catty women and the language that's often used on the shows.  Two weeks ago, my husband and I discovered the show The Bold Type, which is on Freeform (aka, the old Family channel). Whoa guys. I don't know about you, but I am HOOKED! And to be honest, it's such an inappropriate show that I can't even THINK about watching until the girls are in bed and not an ear-shot away from the screen.  It's based on three young women who work for a fashion magainze and they all have their own storyline but work in the same office. The show offers some interesting subjects and focuses on empowering women in the workforce.  Like I said, I'm totally hooked and look forward to watching every week! 

Back to School Supplies
I'm a teacher and therefore it's 'give-me-all-of-the-school-supplies" lately.  I don't know about you, but I noticed back to school signs in Target what seems like a month ago and now it's time for all the sales.  While I don't have a teaching position secured for the upcoming school year, I still keep an eye on sales and can't stop myself from buying supplies, like pens, notebooks, and planners.  I haven't registered Elizabeth up for preschool yet, but it's on my to-do list for this week. But I literally can't wait to buy her a new backpack and some clothes so she's ready for the first day! I'll be rounding up some back to school necessities for your little preschoolers soon, so be on the lookout for that! 
 E already knows her colors and shapes, but 
she loves these cards. We've been working
on numbers lately too! 

All the pretty pens please! 

I hope you have a great weekend with your family!

All the love!

XOXO

  1. I love Jamberry! My daughter in law is a rep. She started her business about 3 years ago and is doing very well. At this point it's mostly easy repeat business.

  4. Hi Everyone
    My mind, for some reason, wont let go of my memory's of My Wife. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago, that lead to her leaving me. All efforts to get her back proved abortive. one day while going through the internet i saw so many testimony of this great man called Dr.Goodluck and how he helped people with all kinds of problem, his advert was everywhere,. Although I never believed in spell casting, but I had no choice than to give him a try so i contacted Him, I was so desperate to have my wife back with me once again. So I did all he told me to do. He told me thatmy wife will come back to me in the next 17hours after the spell is completed. I was skeptical. He casted the spell for me and i was so anxious waiting to see or hear from her, it was just 14hours after the spell was done my wife called and said she was coming HOME and she was asking for forgiveness for her ever hurting me before…..It was a dream come through for me!!! that was how my family and relationship was save and our relationship is now stronger than ever.my advice to you out there facing same problem or even worst then mine cry no more and contact this great man called Dr Goodluck He's capable of handling anything kind of problem.

  5. Return Lost Love Spells That Really Work
    “LOVE, Happiness, Care is the key fo LIFE”. That was the word from Dr happy when I consulted his powerful Love Spell. I married the wrong man; I realized that after Three years of our unfruitful marriage. Everything was going from Best to Worst in our life, no child, I got demoted from work after our marriage, my husband was sacked a year after. His application for new job in various offices was constantly declined even though he was qualified enough. I was made to take care of my family with the low income I earn get that wasn’t enough to pay our rent. We keep praying a seeking for help from some people, my friends laugh at me behind because I was advised not to get married yet.It was one Thursday night that my husband woke me up and told me that has thought enough about our crisis, he said that our crisis is not ordinary and it’s beyond our spiritual level. He suggested we should consult Dr happy from testimonies he showed me online about how he has been helping families. I was afraid, I don’t like evil or spell but I supported him to contact him if he can help us. We consulted him via happylovespell2@gmail.com and he replied positively after 20munites with congratulating email that he can help us but he will need our pure heart and trusts in his work if he will cast the spell on us and purify our life. We agreed to his terms. He cast the spell and told us to expect results within 5days. I waited for three days nothing happened, so I started having doubt and blaming my husband for emailing Dr happy. It was on the fifth day that my husband was called for an interview and he got a well-paying work, I was prompted to a higher position. I missed my period on the 5th day and it was confirmed that I am with a baby. Things have really changed for us for good and we now have our own house and cars. I will never forget what Dr happy told us “LOVE is the key fo LIFE”, this word keep me going. People that laughed at us are coming close for help and I am delighted to welcome them because my family is now blessed. Dr happy is a savior and man that keep to his word even when I doubted his powers at the end of the spell. Thank to your Oracle for helping us plz contact him http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/ for more details email.....happylovespell2@gmail.com or add him on whats-app +2348133873774
