We made it through another week y'all! Even though Monday was a holiday, this week still felt like it was going to last forever. I am truly thankful that today is Friday, and I am out of work. Don't get me wrong, I like having my job, but I love spending time with my family more. I'm also glad to be home, because we are set to get a lot of snow tomorrow. I'm sure there will be a snow day blog post in the very near future! This weeks F3 post might be a bit different from the norm. I'm not going to showcase some of the awesome things I've found on the inter webs, it's going to be fairly simple and short.
The first thing on my list for this week's Fun Friday Fav's list is coffee. Mmmmm, coffee. I love coffee and I'm sure many of you do too. How many cups of coffee do you drink a day? I know that caffeine isn't good for the body, but I drink it regardless. On the weekends I find myself drinking at least 2 cups. I'm sure that should be the opposite, but eh, whatevs.
Makeup and skin care are next. I've been victim of being lazy when it comes to both and as part of my goals for this year I am trying to step up my game. I'm doing little by little, nothing too dramatic or drastic right off the bat. Baby steps to perfection. The photo on the left unfortunately shows how oily my skin gets. I'm waiting to receive some products from ELF Cosmetics, and I hope that will help. There will be a whole new post (plus a video) about that when I receive them! The photo on the right came out looking dramatic somehow, when in actuality, I was looking at one of the light bulbs flickering over my bathroom mirror.
You know what goes great with coffee? Bacon. Not vegan bacon, not turkey bacon...regular old salty bacon. I love bacon, and I'm sure that millions of other people out there do too. I made bacon to crumble over potato soup I made for dinner. The house still smells faintly like bacon. Will I have bacon dreams tonight!?
We are full swing into winter, and my biggest complaint would be the shortness of each day. When I leave work, the sun is in process of setting, with only light showing on the horizon. It's a beautiful sight, don't get me wrong. But I miss leaving work and there being more daylight. When there is darkness after work, it seems as if the day is gone already. On my drive home, I imagine myself on a quest to chasing the sun. Of course by the time I get home, the sun is completely out of sight and the moon is shining bright in its place. I miss the long days of summer. And the heat, I miss the heat.
I am oh so thankful for glasses. I can't see to save my life. Normally upon waking up, I pop my glasses on and go on about my morning routine. One day this week I forgot them. I didn't have my spare pair in my purse either. The entire day I was so disheveled it was truly embarrassing. By the time I left work, nearly everything I looked at was blurry! So now, I keep my spare pair of glasses in my purse, and always put my glasses on as soon as I wake up. Lesson learned!
On Sunday, My son and I decided to make some stop motion Lego animations. I'd tried my hand at stop motion animation a long time ago I think in high school. After seeing how excited my son was after we worked on his, I decided to create one of my own. It didn't take much time, but it was tedious work. But all in all it was very enjoyable, and I plan on making more! The one below took me maybe 5-10 minutes to create. Spiderman and Venom at the Pool:
Now that I'm back to active blogging, there will be more articles coming, about lots of different topics. If there is a topic you'd like me to discuss (or something you'd like me to try out) drop me a comment, or send me an email! I'd love to hear your ideas!
lotsa love to ya!
