Let’s be honest, my Friday looks really similar to my Mondays these days.
And my Wednesdays.
And every other day.
I tried to make some happy spring graphics for our post today.
I’ve decided we’re going to accept it.
Huge and happy is what we need right now, no?
Here’s hoping you find lots to be grateful for this weekend. Happy Friday!
I’ve mentioned this before, but lately, I’ve been in to watching more documentary type shows on Netflix/Prime than fictional ones. This week, I watched two that were both really interesting. I started with…
…Garth Brooks’ The Road I’m On two part documentary on A&E. I thought this one was really put together well. Each part is about an hour and a half and they interview everyone from Garth’s brothers to his ex-wife to his kids, songwriters, other famous musicians, Trisha Yearwood, everyone. I grew up listening to Garth and even though I’m not a “country music person” I can still sing just about every single one of his songs. If you’re a Garth person, then you totally need to watch this…if you’re someone just interested on the life and road of one of the most successful entertainers ever, you should watch it too. I thought Garth came across very likable, but his voice did surprise me. Anyone else? He speaks in a very philosophical tone the entire time he’s being interviewed. Has anyone else noticed this when watching the documentary? I felt like everyone else was speaking normally but he spoke very philosophical/airy/sometimes in third person…I was always surprised when they went back to him and he was speaking not as conversationally as everyone else. Please tell me someone else has noticed this too!
Okay, after I finished Garth, my mom told me to watch…
…The Jonas Brothers documentary on Prime which could not be more random since neither one of us know a single JB song. That being said, this little one part documentary was very interesting too. Since I knew nothing of the band (other than the fact that one of them is married to the girl on Game of Thrones), I learned a lot! When it was over, I found all three of these guys (and their parents!) very likable.
Any other suggestions? I’m on a roll, people! 😉
My second favorite thing this week were these two tops…
…I’m really trying to make an effort to get up, get showered, get my makeup on and get dressed every day. It’s just helping me feel more “normal” right now. I wore both the cozy sweatshirt and the striped tee this week and felt put together while also comfy at the same time. #winning
Don’t forget, now that we’re talking about getting myself together, you can watch all of my makeup/hair videos from Wednesday HERE if you didn’t see that and are interested in how I’m doing my hair and makeup these days.
Speaking of which, I told you in that video that I just purchased a new eye shadow palette, and it arrived on Wednesday night, so yesterday, I made a little video showing it and how I used it for the first time…
I’m not going to be doing videos all the time (don’t worry!), but so many of you asked to see me apply products, so I thought this would be a good opportunity for that.
Here it is…
…the inside is gorgeous and perfect for every day…
…I LOVE these Natural Nudes! Other products I reference in the video are the Laura Mercier primer in Blossom, the fluffy eye shadow brush, the smudge eye shadow brush, the black eyeliner and the white eyeliner.
Number three for the week…
…it’s time for us all to make Resurrection Rolls!
Two things: one, if you haven’t made these at Easter before, now is the time! It’s a great (and easy!) way to share the death and resurrection of Jesus with young kiddos. It’s very visual, easy to assemble and yummy too. You can see my recipe HERE.
Now, the second thing is, I haven’t found a good gluten-free substitute for the crescent rolls that this recipe requires. Do you guys know of any or have a good brand or g-free pastry dough/pie crust/etc we could use this year instead? I’m all ears!
Speaking of Easter recipes, today, I’m also sharing…
…my 9 Easy Easter Sides.
Listen, I have no idea what we’re making next Sunday for Easter dinner, but you better believe it will involve some sort of easy side dish. You can see mine HERE.
I would be remiss if I didn’t include this in my faves this week…
…my MARCH BOOK REVIEW was on Monday and it made me so HAPPY! If you’re looking for a great book, read it! If you already read it and want more book suggestions, go back and read the comment section. I’m already on my first April read and it’s a good one!!
Well, that’s it for this week! I hope you all have a happy and healthy weekend at home! I will see you back here on Monday! xo
