Friday Favorites-February 2019

Hey Friends!

Narci, Andrea, and I have teamed up to share FRIDAY FAVORITES!

A FAVORITE outfit from the week…this leopard sweater, {under $20!!!-comes in three other colors.  I went with a medium…it’s on the shorter side but nothing a little front tuck can’t fix.  Size up if you’d like a little more length} my old jeans that are WAY too busted out in the knees but they’re my absolute favorite fit {similar}, the earrings I wear ALL THE TIME, and wedge sneakers {similar}.

Have you guys heard of this brand, Isle of Paradise?  I’ve officially used this tanner twice and really liked it both times.  It gave me a really pretty color but it wasn’t an orangey-color and it wasn’t enough color that you could tell I missed a spot.  Horrible explanation but if you used self-tanners before-I think it’ll make sense?

I told Shay she needed to try to ASAP BUT it’s sold out everywhere and Amazon is taking full advantage and enjoying the supply/demand situation and it’s PRICEY over there right now.  I’ll keep you posted if it comes back in stock at a better price.  If you’ve tried any other products, please let me know.

I’m highlighting a new FAVORITE small business…Life and Laundry Apparel.  The business was started by two mamas who create custom workout apparel, tees, and hats.  Look how cute this LOVED tank is.   And it’s on SALE NOW!  {It paired so nicely with my new workout pants.}

 Check out this tank as well!

Life and Laundry Apparel is offering you guys 30% off your order with the code SLAUGHTEREN!  EEK!  All of their fitness tanks are such a cute alternative to a solid tank I’d typically wear to the gym.

I’m adding this hat to my cart RIGHT NOW and ordering today!  

Thank you, Life and Laundry Apparel!

Okay, I talked Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago and totally forgot to mention that Everything But the Bagel Seasoning.  Yes, I have it.  Thanks to Sheaffer!  I’m pretty sure she dropped some off at my house one time because friends don’t let friends eat plain avocado toast.  ๐Ÿ˜‰  I was walking the aisles of Costco recently and came across THIS Everything Bagel Crusted Cod.  We REALLY liked it!  My kids kept saying it tasted like chicken tenders.  MOM WIN!  I served it with veggies and everyone ate dinner with smiles on their faces!  The box comes with six large pieces of cod…I baked them all and we had one leftover.  Costco shoppers-Slaughters highly recommend this!

Did you guys see this?  The TINIEST box of wild rice made it’s way to my grocery pick up earlier this week.  I need to order two other teeny boxes to have enough for my people at dinner time.

Another comfy Amazon top for the win…this one might be tunic length on some of you if you size up.  I ordered a medium and it’s long but not long enough for leggings as pants, so I front tucked a little bit.  This camo top is softer than the leopard one from my Wednesday post.  It comes in other camo colorways and at under $19 a STEAL!

I FINALLY started reading this potty training book and so far I’m loving it.  So much of the entire process is about ME and MY ATTITUDE.  The author does a great job of whipping the parent into shape before we even begin.  

I spent three days a few weekends ago with Britt in panties really diving into the potty training game and then life happened and I put her in a pull-up when we went out of the house.  WRONG!  Since then I’ve been using the term, “we’re TRYING to potty train”, which the author of the book is like…NO, you’re not TRYING to potty train.  You’re either all in or you’re not.  It’s basically like the author is giving me a stern “talking to” to gear me up.

Needless to say, it was just the push I needed.  If you’re in the same spot and needing a push I highly recommend this book!

That wraps up my favorites from the week!  We have some kid fun planned tonight…you know full of a fun spot that smells like dirty kid feet and then a relaxing weekend before ALL THE SPRING sports begin!  Happy Friday!

    Oh my gosh, love your post today! I really love that tank and checked out their website, tons of cute options! The potty training book is something I probably need too, Iโ€™ve โ€œtriedโ€ multiple times to potty train Camryn (our youngest) and so far not working out so good. Ha!

    I was just telling all of my coworkers yesterday that they needed to go buy the Isle of Paradise self tanner. I use the self tanning drops, and I love it! I just add 4-5 drops of it into my moisturizer for my face at night, mix together and apply that way. You can also add more drops to body lotion and spread that on your arms/legs, too. I wash my hands immediately after and have never had any weird orange hand problems. I also sleep on all white sheets, and it has never come off there overnight. I love that it's subtle and simple!

    I'd size up in any of those sweatshirts/tops from Amazon. I typically wear a small in most and ordered mediums…I'd much prefer an oversize look over a very form fitting sweatshirt. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope that helps!! And I need those drops!

    That cod sounds amazing! I am going to have to check and see where our nearest Costco is… Good luck on the potty training! I always chose to potty train in the summer when we were home and outside… somehow those messes don't seem as important out on the lawn. HA!
