May Faves!

I cannot believe it's the first day of June! May was such a fun month; FULL of busy, exciting, and new things. I thought I would share some of my favorite things from the month!

Beauty Faves

I'm not sure if the foundation is really making my skin 'better', but I love it so much! It's a medium coverage, and feels so light on the skin. I definitely recommend it now that the weather is getting toasty!

The moisturizer is labeled for sensitive skin, but I just really like this because it's so light. It absorbs so quickly into the skin, and is not greasy at all.

Music Faves

Some new. Some old. All good. Since B installed bluetooth in my car, I've quit relying on the radio and started looking for new and different music to listen to. When I was making this list, I realized just how random and weird my music tastes are.. lol These albums couldn't be more different! But that's ok with me.

Milledgeville got an Aldi, and I'm so happy about it! I have been to the Aldi in Macon before, but it really wasn't worth a 45 minute drive to do my shopping. It's so cheap, y'all. And it's small and convenient and they have everything I need. I am just thrilled.

Food Faves

This photo is from my Taco Salad post, but I wanted to share it again because one of my favorite things about this time of year is the fresh food! The fruit and vegetables this time of year are to die for. I'm so excited to eat delicious, fresh food all summer long!

Iced coffee/lattes are also something I'm into this summer. I have never really done iced coffee before, but after having the most amazing iced latte in Lynchburg, I wanted to venture out and try things other than plain coffee with cream. Ha! : ) My latest jam is an iced latte with hazelnut and coconut. Summer in a cup, I tell ya.

Really, this is an all-year-round fave, but since it's officially "Grilling Season", I will claim it as a May fave! You just can't beat the flavor from a grill. It just makes me happy!

My Life Faves

I don't need to tell you, but graduation was a major May fave. I am so, so happy to be finished with school! And I'm so proud of myself. It was all worth it!

Spontaneous date nights are always a fave. When B came home and took me to Aubri Lane's, it was much needed and soooo perfect! That lamb was absolutely delicious.

Summer break! It has been so nice to sleep a little later, hang out with our friends, spend more time outside, cook, and just relax!

MACK. Mack is a May Fave forever and always. We celebrated his second birthday this month, and it was so much fun!

I didn't get to take any pictures of him a the party, but this is one of my favorite pictures of him. He is growing so quickly, and I absolutely love watching him learn and develop his little personality. He is so funny! He repeats everything you say and would play outside all day if you let him. I just love this sweet baby so much! Time, please slow down.

Let It Snow

Oh, January... You are the longest month ever. 31 days with no paycheck. 31 days of cold. It's such a long 31 days... And we still have 8 left! I mentioned in my last post that we are trying to clean out our freezer and quit eating out so much... We challenged ourselves to not eat out at all this month, and while we haven't been perfect, we have eaten out A LOT less than we usually do, so I'd call that a win!

One of the things we dug out of the chest freezer was some cubed steak. B decided to try a "light" Country Fried Steak recipe from Bobby Deen. You can check out the recipe here. It was baked rather than fried and the gravy was made with half and half instead of milk... It was 497 calories for the steak, gravy, rice and green beans. Not too bad considering the nutrition facts for this exact meal at a chain restaurant was over 800 calories! Nice job, B.

Our youth group is starting a new series on purity, and we haven't met in a while, so we decided to meet this week. Taylor wasn't feeling well, but rather than cancel, he decided to be facetimed into the meeting... We are totally high tech at Northside! ; )

On Thursday, we celebrated our 100th day of school! Our kids were so excited. We did a lot to celebrate the day, including making necklaces with 100 fruit loops! I'm fairly certain I ate about 300 fruit loops during the process... I don't remember the last time I ate Fruit Loops and I forgot how good they were!

B and I have been going to the gym since the new year as part of our resolutions... I haven't worked out consistently in a long time, so it feels so good to be back at it! But, my muscles are like WHAT THE HECK so I decided to accept my fate as an old lady and relax in an Epsom salt bath the other night... I've always heard of the "healing powers" of Epsom salt, so I decided to give it a shot! I'm not sure if it did anything, but it felt good!

I also started school again this week. I'm so ready to be finished! I have major "senioritis"! I will graduate in May, and it cannot come quick enough... 3 more classes, and I will be an official college graduate. Man, I can't wait! Working full time along with being a full time student has been a challenge, but I know it will be worth it in the end.

These are some of my favorite things this month: A (Free) Spotify subscription (thanks Michelle!) and this amazing candle I got as a Christmas gift. I have burnt the whole thing down in less than a month, but I'm pretty sure I will be repurchasing this scent. It is amazing! These 2 songs have been on my "school work" play lists and pretty much repeat.

It has been so cold these past few days. I don't really mind the cold, mainly because I love my boots and over-sized sweaters, but I'm itching for springtime. Coffee has been my friend lately... I have been drinking multiple cups a day, which I only do during the very cold months. I tried to take a cool and artsy photo of my cream, but I failed. Humor me, okay?

Around midnight last night, it started to snow! We watched it fall for a little while, but then headed to bed. This is what we woke up to today! I wish we had gotten more so we could really enjoy it, but at least we got a little... It's certainly not much, but in middle Georgia, this is enough to shut the city down. : )

Maxx is happy that we didn't get too much snow. He hates the cold. Bless his heart! He and I are snuggling now on the couch, and me and B are catching up on The Blacklist from our DVR. Today is a good day!
