Treat Yourself Tuesday

Linking up with Becky from Olives ‘n Wine for a quick Treat Yourself Tuesday post because I’m about to go treat myself to an afternoon out in the sunshine with the boys.  If you are new to TYT Becky has a great post explaining why she thinks it’s so important to treat ourselves to things that make us happy, and I couldn’t agree with her more.  Here are a few ways I brought a smile to my face this past week.

{ 1 }  If you saw my April Stitch Fix review post from yesterday I just wanted to report back that I listened as always, and these are the three keepers!  I seriously can’t get enough of Stitch Fix…it’s the ultimate treat in my opinion so go fill out your Style Profile and see why this is all the buzz these days!


{ 2 }  I had to make a quick  trip to the mall the other day to grab a gift for a friend, but wouldn’t you know that Sephora was calling my name as I walked by.  I have been obsessed with Nars Orgasm blush since the first time I tried it, and now I am equally as obsessed with their Copacabana Illuminator.   It’s the perfect shimmery highlighter for your face.  You won’t catch me leaving the house without either of these on…they instantly make me feel (and look) happy! :)

{ 3 }  So you are probably wondering how a stroller can be considered a treat, but let me tell you when you are used to trying to squeeze through crowds at Disneyland with a giant double BOB stroller and crying kids…you will understand why I am in love with this Graco RoomFor2 Sit and Stand stroller.  After my friend told me about this stroller last week, I literally opened my phone next to her, went to Amazon, and hit purchase on this….for a steal of $97.00 including 2 day shipping.  4 cup holders, snack trays, sun shade, Nathan can sit or stand up on the back and hold on to those handlers.  We were weaving in and out of crowds AND the kids loved their new ride.  This made for such an easier outing for us and I honestly don’t have a use for any other stroller now.  WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!



{ 4 }  Here is evidence of our happy day at Disneyland just mama and her boys.  We had the best time together and I am going to say that stroller made life so much easier for us!  A tear free trip to Disney is a win in my book (they do not like that double BOB for some reason and fight the entire time lol)



{ 5 }  Well it’s no new news around here that I love me some Advocare.  But did you know I love it THIS much?  Never in a million years did I think I would be sporting a car decal on my Mom-mobile…but hey, I am so proud of this company and all the great friendships I have made through it, I was ready to represent! lol.  I like my sticker and it makes me happy when I walk out to my car….even though I think Greg and I grew a few white hairs trying to put it on together.  My OCD kicked in big time!  But we survived and it’s straight and air bubble free haha.


{ 6 }  This past Saturday I treated myself to a morning with some of my favorite people doing one of my favorite things….exercising!!  Our bootcamp had a party for our location and it was such a great way to start off the weekend.  Even though it kicked my butt I had a smile on my face the whole time because the energy of these people is contagious!  Love you Long Beach Bootcamp!!!


{ 7 }  Sunday we had the pleasure of going to a couples’ shower for our good friends that are having their first baby girl! It was a great day and we figured since we already had a sitter, and were in Laguna Beach we should treat ourselves to a little late afternoon date!  I REALLY wanted to treat myself to a cocktail but I was on day 6 of my 10 day cleanse, and stayed strong and enjoyed the view, my delicious grilled chicken salad and of course my company.  We decided day dates are such a nice change of scenery and will be doing them more often for sure!   Would you look at that view?  What an awesome way to end the weekend!TYTbeach


Alright time to go set up the sprinkler, water table, and slip and slide…it’s going to be 90 degrees today and I gotta keep these boys cool and happy! :)  I will treat myself to some shade!  I hope you all have an awesome Tuesday and don’t forget to treat yourself today and everyday!

    Fun, fun stuff! Especially that awesome date! I’m a big fan of day dates.
    And thanks for making it that much easier for my boys to spot your car ;)

      This just made me laugh. I know Carson somehow senses if it’s our car or not, but at least now you can confidently confirm he is right when he says it’s us haha.
