It’s not just any old Friday… it’s the first Friday of 2018! Who is snowed in somewhere today? Fourteen glorious inches of snow fell around our house yesterday and we are all in heaven.
Aside from the fact that I am trying for a dry January and a modified meal plan, I enjoyed watching the snow fall peacefully. If I had a big glass of wine and bowl of carbs it would have been better, but ya know, my body loves me today.
one. new recipes.
My sister started a group for people trying the Whole 30 this month (which is basically 75% of the US) and I’m tagging along for the ride.My goal is not weight loss (which means no before/after pictures); my goal is to regulate my IBS and cut back on sugar and alcohol for 30 days. I bought a book to keep track of my progress and all the ingredients on the Whole 30 shopping list. However, I’m not pressuring myself to complete the month as I’ve already made mistakes in the first week. Plus, the amount of protein I’m eating in a day is giving me some issues… we shall see how it goes. In the meantime, I enjoy trying new recipes
.two. snowy day shopping.
I snagged this shirt for $12 yesterday during the snow day! I wear plaid shirts ( all the time and try to buy 1-2 new ones a year from J.Crew Factory because they last forever. I also snagged this rugby shirt that will be perfect under a long cardigan.
three. snow BOGS.
Trust me when I tell you this… Bogs are the warmest snow boots I’ve ever owned. I’ve worn a few different brands and if you need a real snow boot – you know ones you can trek through the yard in and wear while shoveling for 1.5 hours (like I did yesterday), you have to give Bogs a try.
four. adorable girls clothing.
JoJo Maman Bebe is an absolutely adorable clothing boutique based out of London that makes timeless pieces for girls and boys. The history of JoJo is quite unique and started at a kitchen table in London (literally). They ship all over the U.S. and sent Annabelle the cutest package of girly fun clothes (like a corduroy jumper and soft pink cardigan). You can earn points when you shop, there is free shipping over $100, and free returns.
five. oh happy feature friday.
Being a member of Reward Style has it’s perks… but I’ve never had a photo featured on LiketoKnow.it.Family until today! I was so excited to wake up and see little Ailey and myself. If you don’t follow me on LiketoKnow.it, it’s so easy to sign up. You can shop all of my outfits on Instagram just by liking the photo or clicking the link in the caption. A special thanks to Elizabeth Grant for snapping the photo of my silly girl and I before the big snowstorm hit this week.
I’m with you – back on a diet and kinda hating it! I woke up this morning and was starving!
