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! I could have gone for the gradual self tan lotion that Jergens is so famous for, but no, I went straight for the big guns. If you're gonna do something, you have to be all in. No "gradual tan" BS I told myself. So a few nights ago, I tested the self tanner on m

Weekend Vibes: Saturday Walks with My Crew

This weekend started like every other weekend around here. My husband had to work Saturday morning, we had no groceries, no clean underwear, and there was the all too familiar stench of boy farts and sweat coming from my son's room. Don't I just paint the prettiest of pictures?

I can't say I tackled the day's chores right away. Or the state of my son's room. But what I can tell you, is that I drank 3 cups of coffee, and ignored the kids for about 2 hours while I lost myself in my blog before I decided to get moving on my very glamorous Saturday morning to-do list. 

I'm sure you all have a similar list: strip the beds/wash the sheets, do 1 million loads of laundry, fantasize about living on the beach in Malibu with a gorgeous man servant who scrubs the toilets so you don't have to. Then pull yourself together, swear under your breath that you live with a bunch of effing wild animals...and promptly put off the rest of the house cleaning and toilet bowl cleaning 'till Sunday.

After I got that out of the way, I tricked my kids into coming out for a hike with me by telling them we were going to Costco and I'd buy them some ice cream. I softened the blow by getting them some hot chocolate before thrusting them out into the cold fall air for our brisk walk. Luckily they were so distracted by the hot chocolate they didn't complain too much about the walk. Overall we walked for over an hour, and they didn't really start complaining that their legs were going to fall off until the last 15 minutes. Overall it was a success and I already told them to rest up 'cause we're doing it again tomorrow! hahahahaha

Some highlights from our walk today:
