Saturday Small Talk

Ah Saturday, how I love thee. It’s hard to believe we’re rocketing toward the middle of November, with less than 2 weeks until we celebrate Thanksgiving. Where in the world did 2017 go?! Since it’s been awhile, here’s a little catch up!

Lindsey Kubly has been writing about simplifying, and she’s totally speaking my language. So inspiring.

A friend recommended this Water Gel Moisturizer with Sunscreen, and I love it. I’ve been using it on my face in the mornings. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy, but is definitely a moisturizer.  Plus it’s fragrance free and hasn’t made my acne-prone skin break out. If you’re in the market for a facial moisturizer, I can’t say enough good things. If you want to fall down a rabbit hole of skincare advice, look no further.

Want a ridiculous but entertaining novel? Check out The Royal We. Profound literature it is not, but it sure is a nice, relaxing read.

Speaking of books, I have 11 to go by the end of the year. Can I do it? Not sure. Have any quick (but still decent) reads to recommend? I have Essentialism and The Road Back to You on hold at the library for me. Wants some tips for reading more books? Jon Acuff reads like a fiend and has some good tips.

Julia was gifted the sweetest book recently: Little Sleepyhead. The pictures are lovely, the text is darling. It would make the perfect baby shower or new baby gift!

Have you seen the movie Me Before You? I’ve read the book so totally knew how the story ends, but I was still bawling my eyes out in the most cathartic way. It’s the perfect movie to watch solo with snacks and a mug of tea (or a glass of wine, if that’s your thing).

We ate Cajun Chicken Pasta this past week, and each time we do, I have two thoughts. 1. I love this dish passionately for how deliciously tasty it is and how quick it is to prepare (skip the marinate time, you won’t know the difference). 2. My 4 week meal plan is the bomb.com. Make one for yourself and see just how much brain space it frees for you!

Bob and I have been binge watching Parks and Rec, and I have no regrets. The first season was a bit rough, but each season after, I fall more and more in love with the characters. I don’t want it to be over.

I’m starting to wrap my brain around Christmas cards for this year. Send me your ideas! The past few years, we’ve sent a photo of our family and I’ve designed a postcard in Canva to include with it. I’d be willing to change it up for something fun, though! Ideas?

What are you up to this Saturday?
