Self Tanner vs. Jen: Volume 1

Last night I did something.  I succumbed to my sanity and tried self tanner.  Some would ask "Why?" and all I can tell you is, I blame YouTube and beauty influencers with long tanned legs. You see, it started with tan lines on my stomach. Since having kids my stomach hasn't seen the light of day, and it legit startles me every time I take a shower and have to face myself in the mirror. I figured a self tanner would help solve that problem and I set out for product reviews, DIY strategies, and tips and tricks. Which then led me to YouTube. Which then led me to Instagram. Which then led me to hashtags. Which then led me to realize Jergens is still around and hey, a newish (to me at least) product: foam!

When Your Heart is Full

This past weekend was really something special. It was a long weekend here (Family Day weekend) and also Valentine's Day on Friday. I woke up early on Friday morning to surprise flowers from my husband...it was such a nice way to start the day...especially since my day starts at 5:30 a.m.

Parents vs Kids Game Night
Saturday night my hubby and I went out for an amazing dinner just us two. It was a much needed evening out and left us so full that I seriously had to lie down in the car the whole way home - I thought I was safe with stretchy pants but apparently, my belly was too full and my pants didn't want to stretch with it.
Deconstructed Cheesecake and a Cappuccino! Heaven!
Sunday was another day spent with family - I went to visit my parents with my daughter for the day...and my son had hockey and then a sleepover birthday party.

Monday, the official holiday...I had to work and so did hubby so my parents took the kids to an outdoor family festival complete with outdoor skating, hot chocolate, and outdoor band.

It was an amazing weekend filled with quality family time...and while I'm always happy to have the relief of going back to work after these weekends lol I still feel like my heart is full and I'm lucky to have them all in my life!
