Friday Favorites - Curly Hair Faves


Happy Friday!  I made the excellent decision a few weeks ago to request today off as a vacation day.  Present day Nichole is thanking past Nichole for that choice.
I recently found an amazing product that my curls are loving so I thought for this week's Friday Favorites I'd round up my favorite curly hair necessities.

Amazon Lately


Amazon has been a lifesaver during quarantine.  Between working full-time and life with an on-the-go toddler, there is just little opportunity to run out and do this quick errands.  Here's some of the things that we've purchased lately that have been great finds.

Friday Favorites - Cozy Things


We made it to Friday and not a moment too soon!  While I love a long weekend, I also dislike the cramming of 5 days worth of work into 4 days.  But the weekend is upon us!

Recipe: My Morning Smoothie


One of my go to breakfasts for years has been a smoothie.  I find them satisfying and filling and I like that I can sip on them over the course of the morning.  Here's how I make mine.

Life Lately


Happy Tuesday!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  We were mostly low key, but did venture out to the Dallas Zoo for a couple of hours on Sunday.  Here's a peek at what life lately has looked like (COVID edition).

I feel like we are at this point in 2020 right now, especially because Fall and Winter are my favorite seasons.

These two have been Henry's favorite companions lately.  They alternate between his room and the living room.  They're soft and squishy and my kid has always been a sucker for a stuffed animal.

Recipe: Chicken and Date Salad

 Happy Monday!  Let's start the week with a recipe.  I love a good salad.  Now, I'm not one of those people who say I prefer a salad over ice cream, but I love a good salad for lunch or dinner.  Normally I would say, you can't beat a good restaurant salad.  There's some secret sorcery there, however, I feel that this salad rivals a restaurant salad.  It's hearty and delicious and has all the flavors.

Friday Favorites


Y'all.  We're here - it's Friday.  Hooray!  This week has been crazy with the first week of classes.  I added an extra day on campus into the work from home rotation and I've felt off about my schedule all week.  But we're here.  We made it to the weekend.

Not that we have any plans, it'll be another low key weekend hanging at the house, but there will be no Zoom calls.

 My favorites this week are courtesy of Target!  They are killing it with the cute clothes for toddler boys this season.  I snagged a bunch of stuff for Henry this week.

What's Up Wednesday

 Happy Wednesday!  And y'all, it's the last Wednesday of the month.  I can hardly believe it.  Where did August go?

Since it's the last week of the month, it's time to link up with Shay and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday.

Here's a little peek into our world right now.

1.  What We're Eating

Lunches this week are my favorite salad!  Baby spinach, chicken, chopped dates, goat cheese, pecans, and croutons/corn bread crisps with balsamic vinaigrette.  So so good.

Friday Favorites - Work Bags


The weekend is right around the corner and I am so excited.  Not that we have anything planned, mind you.
Let's talk work bags this Friday.  I LOVE a good tote.  If I had to pick my favorite style of bag, it would be a tote.  I love having the extra space to just toss something in if I'm out and about.  This makes them great for work because I can fit my laptop, makeup pouch, ipad, notepads, whatever else I might need for the work day.

Life Lately


My institution starts Fall classes next Wednesday and I have all the anxiety about it.  Not that there's anything I can do - all of our plans are put in place.  We'll see what happens.  So a lot of work, a lot of home life going on - here's a peek into what we've been up to lately.
