Hi there! Happy Friday! I don’t know why every time I hear Friday I automatically think of that horrible song. “It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday.” Ugh. Such a horrible song. I was driving to work this morning listening to my favorite morning show, Elvis Duran and as I was thinking of that Friday song, they decided to play it. So weird. They don’t usually play that on Fridays anymore. I guess we were on the same wavelength or something this morning. Such a terrible song but it seriously gets stuck in your head! Craziness! What are you doing this weekend? Anything fun planned?
I’m looking forward to tonight! I’m going to meet someone from a tv show that I really like! I don’t want to give it away so I will save it for my post either sometime this weekend or on Monday. I’m going with my friend/bridesmaid Courtney. It should be an interesting time. Tomorrow, Mike and I need to go to our travel agent. We have to do some paperwork for our honeymoon. I’m getting excited for it. I think we also might see if we can exchange some gifts that we received at the shower. Then on Sunday is Mother’s Day. Happy Early Mother’s Day to all you Mommy’s out there!
So after work yesterday, I waited until Melissa got home to head over to her house. We hung out at her house for a little while and then decided to go to Wegmans for dinner. Lately Wegman’s has really been stepping up their game with their hot bar and their food offerings. They have a really cute seating area too. I decided on some sushi for dinner. I thought that might be gentle on my stomach. Who knows at this point? I think I’m going to have to start eating very bland again. All of this because I screwed up last weekend. GR! We had a good time talking and hanging out at Weg’s. I like going there. It was great too because it wasn’t crowded at all.
After we had dinner, we did some errands that we had to take care of for our mom for Mother’s Day. I think she is going to love what we got her. It’s always so hard figuring out what to get people for gifts. I always get so nervous when they open it because I want them to really like it.
When we were done shopping, we went back to her house for a little while and then I ventured home where I stayed up entirely too late with Mike watching Grey’s Anatomy. It was worth it though because it was a good episode. I cannot wait to watch the season finale!
I thought today I would talk about some of my beginning of May favorites. I want to bring this feature back that I was doing for a while. I think it’s fun to talk about some things that I like and see what you guys like as well.
First up is:
Dove White Beauty Bar Soap
My face has been breaking out a lot lately, I think from stress. I had been using a face wash for a while but it seemed to be doing nothing. I mean my face was pretty clear for a long time and then I needed something to calm it down. Melissa had told me that she uses the Dove White Beauty Bar to wash her face and she has no breakouts and her skin is soft and smooth. So I decided to go back to the basics and try this out. I’ve been using it for a week now and I notice that my breakouts are going away and my face feels so silky smooth. Plus, I have always been a fan of how the Dove Bar smells. I’m loving this.
Snackwell’s Peanut Butter Pretzels (110 calories packs)
I bought these new pretzel snacks after seeing them in the supermarket last weekend. These 110 calorie packed peanut butter pretzels are so good! Peanut butter and pretzel is a great combination in my opinion. It’s a great snack and the pack has a decent amount of pretzels too. Snackwell’s has come out with a huge variety of these types of snacks. They all have between 100 and 130 calories per pouch. Not a bad idea for a snack on the go.
Barbara’s Bakery Peanut Butter Puffins Cereal
It’s been a while since I have had Peanut Butter Puffins. I haven’t bought them in a long time because they are expensive. They were on sale and I had a coupon last weekend so I bought them again. I missed them so much! I love the flavor and the crunch and it doesn’t bother my stomach. I like that the cereal is wheat free too because I’ve been trying to avoid a lot of wheat products for my stomach. I want to try the chocolate and peanut butter puffins. Those look really good too!
Silk Fruit & Protein (Strawberry Banana)
I had a coupon for this product too a couple of weeks ago. I thought it would be interesting to try this Fruit & Protein drink. I am not putting this as a favorite for me because I personally didn’t care for it all that much. I just don’t think I am a fan of smoothies. Maybe I haven’t made one that I like yet? I don’t know. Mike has been drinking this and he really likes it! So I take that as a good thing. He is a smoothie fan. So I think he would recommend this drink which is why I put it on my favorites list.
Secret Natural Minerals Deodorant (Eucalyptus Blossom)
I am really picky about deodorant that I wear. I tend to sweat a lot when I get nervous or I’m scared. So I am always looking for a strong deodorant that will cover up and signs of sweat. I change deodorants quite frequently until I find something that I really like and that works. This one I have been using for a while now and I love it! I love the scent and it completely covers any odors. It lasts a long time too. I really like the Eucalyptus Blossom scent. It smells fresh and girlie. I am a fan of this product for sure.
So these are some of my May favorites. Do you like any of these that I mentioned? What are some of your favorite items of May so far?
Have a great Friday!
