I Heart Friday + 21 Day Fix?

I got this beauty in a recent Ipsy bag and I have been reaching for it ever since. In the past, I've used eyeshadow to fill in my brows, but this pencil is a life saver. It's so much quicker than the shadows. I also truly believe it's universal like it claims! I love that it's dual sided too: a spoolie on one end, and the pencil on the other.
TWO. Poshmark
Don't know why I'm so late to the craze, but I love me some Poshmark. I just bought my first item off there for $13 (this bad boy) and I'm one happy camper. Have you shopped at Poshmark before?
THREE. 21 Day Fix
I'm about to jump on the 21 Day Fix train and am pretty excited. Have any of y'all tried it before? It's all about portion control mixed with a 30 minute exercise each day. Give me your opinions about it! To be honest, I've been starving myself lately and/or only eating once per day to lose weight. I KNOW it's not healthy to do that so that's why I'm looking for an alternative that will kick this baby weight! 
FOUR. My Kid
I am a little obsessed with being a mama. And for that reason, I'm counting that in my Friday Favorites. I really want to pray for my friends who are trying to conceive or beat infertility's butt. Please just let me know if you are in need of prayers and I'm there! Just a little reminder: God knows the desires of your heart and will fulfill them in His perfect time. My baby girl is proof of that.
FIVE. Family Photos
Next month, my hubby and I are having our annual anniversary photos... except this time, we'll be featuring our kid on my hip. (Insert happiest cheers EVER). See our anniversary pictures here: first anni, second anni, third anni. Anyways, I am trying to plan out our coordinating outfits and it's making me ultra excited. Does anyone else love having pictures as much as I do? I think we'll try this pose.
Linking up today for Oh hey, Friday!

  4. That picture! LOL!!! I think the 21 day fix is a great start to getting healthy...the right way!! I am not going to be all preachy here...but not getting enough calories in a day is only going to stunt permanent progress. It isn't sustainable. The best thing that has given me the quickest results is cutting grains, dairy and processed foods from my diet combined with some weight lifting and a little cardio. I dropped about 10 pounds in three weeks doing that and saw some muscle definition as a bonus! And it didn't cost me anything. Also, having a healthy partner in crime helps hold accountability too. I have two friends that text with me each morning after our work outs and encourage each other to make healthy decisions during the day with food.

  5. I can’t wait to do some Poshmark selling once things slow down in the winter – that’s concept is such a neat idea! Yay for adding a sweet little babe to your family photos this year! Happy weekend, lady!

  10. I'm definitely interested in 21 Day Fix, so you'll have to keep us posted on how it goes and how you like it! I've been doing 30DS and tracking my calories with My Fitness Pal. I haven't weighed myself since my 6 week pp appointment though, so I'm not sure how much difference I've made yet.

  11. I love the 21 day fix!!! I lost 9 lbs the first time I did it. It was awesome. I still use the yellow container when I have any carbs for dinner.

    I also, LOVE your yearly pictures. I wish I could get my husband to do those. My best luck this year will be christmas photos. I love photo shoots!!

  16. Have you heard of the Whole30? It's more of a lifestyle change to make you aware of the foods you are eating and focuses on natural foods. I'm almost done with it and feel great (and have also lost about 7 lbs!) I highly recommend it! You can read about it by googling Whole30 or check out my new blog thesweatyfoodie.wordpress.com I blogged about my first few weeks!
