Five Things Friday Including a Guilty Pleasure

Happy Friday everyone! This week I thought I would try something a little different and share a few things that are currently going on in our/my life. Let me know what you guys think of these type of posts and if the concessis is yay then I will keep them coming. Maybe at the end of the post leave me a comment sharing something that is going on in your life right now? Or if there is something you want to know more of let me know and maybe I will share more on that topic! Here is my Five Things Friday, Including a Guilty Pleasure of mine!

1. It appears that there is more snow in the forecast, boo! This being said we have officially booked our first vacation as a family of 4!! Yay!! We will be heading out to the sunny beaches of Maui at the end of April and I can hardly wait! The last time we headed out on an airplane was exactly the same time, two years ago when we went to Disneyland. Hazel was almost two and I was halfway through my pregnancy with Everett. We haven’t been to Maui in almost 4 years, Hazel was 6 months old, you can see some pictures here. I think it’s safe to say this trip is going to be a very different experience!

2.I started a new skin care regime this week and so far I am loving it. I have passed up my usual drugstore brands for a local company and while my new routine is a bit more complex it’s also a little more simple when it comes to the ingredients, so thats a huge win. Even though it’s only been a few days my skin already looks and feels 100 times better.

3. On Wednesday I dropped the kids off at Grandma and Grampas house and went and got my hair done. Getting my hair done these days is a full day experience and really isn’t as luxurious and relaxing as it once was. I drove a total of 3.5 hours on Wednesday to get to my hair appointment, including dropping off the kids and spent 3.5 hours in the chair at the salon. I let you do the math but it ends up being a long day!!  It’s a good thing I only go every 10-12 weeks because I am almost contemplating shaving my head, lol!!

4. Since we’ve moved into our new house I have been on a huge plant kick. I don’t know what it is but since we moved I have accumulated 11 plants!! One of them we actually brought with us from the townhouse and I have some how managed to keep this plant alive since July! Yes it is an Aloe plant and yes they are hard to kill but I am still impressed that it’s lasted this long!

5. I am not one to watch a lot of tv but I have finally started using  Netflix for something other than Paw Patrol and I am hooked! I asked on my Facebook page a little while ago what others favourite shows were and I was flooded with so many great suggestions, (click here if you want to see them all.) I am going to have to start weaving my way through them all but for now I am hooked on one show, I call it my guilty pleasure, probably because I feel like I shouldn’t be watching it but its just so addicting. The show I am referring to is Riverdale, have you watched it yet? It’s based loosely around the Archie comics, something I used to love reading so maybe thats why I like it so much. Perhaps it’s also because it has a dark mysterious secret around it and I love mystery type shows, movies, books etc.  Or maybe because it’s filmed locally here in BC, Fort Langley to be exact and it’s neat to see how they’ve turned such a beautiful spot into Riverdale. Unlike most Netflix series new episodes are released weekly, which drives me nuts as I have to wait, (I hate waiting) but it’s probably a good thing as it gives me a little something to look forward to at the end of the week. Whats better than a little Friday night bath, a glass of wine and some Netflix once the kids are in bed?

    What skincare regime did you start? I just got a sample pack from a local company – I wonder if it’s the same? ?

      Isn’t it (Riverdale) addicting? I just finished tonight’s episode and I’m already counting down to next Friday!? I just started using all of K’Pures stuff. Her mask, wash, oil etc
