What. A. Week.  Not going to bore you too much with the nitty-gritty, but this week was a frickin whirlwind.  Today is FRIDAY and that makes me happy AF!  And this weekend is going to be pretty good.  Me + Mom + Kissey + George + Vegas….enough said!

So, let’s chat about 5 things on my mind…..


ONE – iPhone maps // Anyone else thinks it’s borderline creepy that you’re iPhone knows exactly where you’re headed?  I got this leaving the gym the other morning.  Every morning I get in my car, it tells me what time I’ll arrive at my office in Dixon.

I found out that deep inside your location services (under privacy) there is a feature called Frequent Locations.  When turned on, your phone will keep tack of places you visit on a regular basis.  After about a week it will begin automatically sending you travel time to destinations you frequent at that given time.  Weird.  Some peeps have asked how it works, or how to turn it on.  So there ya go.

My question….do you love it?  Or do you hate it?  I’m not a fan.

TWO – Harry’s // Ladies + gentleman…do yourself a favor and throw away your razors.  Go to Target and grab a Harry’s.  I know they are designed for me, but trust me on this one…..You’ll get the best leg shave ever.  Smooth as a babies butt!  Harry’s get’s my full endorsement.

$10 for a the grip + 2 razors + travel cover.

• 1 Rubberized grip handle for control
• 2 Razor Blade Cartridges featuring 5 German razor blades, flex hinge, lubricating strip, and a precision trimmer
• 1 Travel Razor Blade Cover to protect your razor blades when you’re on-the-go

Harry’s Men’s Razor with 2 Razor Blades has everything you need for an exceptional shave.

Harry’s razor blade cartridges are engineered at its world-class German factory that has been producing some of the world’s finest blades for almost 100 years. Each cartridge features 5 razor blades with precision-honed edges that are both sharp and durable, a flex hinge that contours to your face, a lubricating strip for a smooth finish, and a precision trimmer for those hard-to-reach places.

The razor handle is designed with a rubberized matte exterior, texturized grip pattern, and weighted core for maximum grip and control. It may be the best-looking thing in your bathroom (other than you).


The branding is on point too, which I know all women like 🙂

THREE – Salsa Chicken // I posted these images on my Instagram stories last night.  Dinner delivery + meeting baby Cora ♥  3 week old Baby Cora was for sure a highlight of the week.  Bay’s already requesting to babysit 🙂  She’s the littlest, cutest baby.  Reminds me of Bay when she was 3 weeks old…about 11 years ago…OMG!

We also took dinner to Cora’s diaper changing, midnight feeding, parents.  I  got lots of messages asking for the chicken recipe.  It’s probably the most simple recipe ever.  And I’ve made it more times than I can count.  Make a great salad topper, taco filler, quesadilla stuffing.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • chunky salsa (I use Pace)

Place chicken in a crockpot.  Top with 1/2 jar or more of salsa.

Cook on high for 3-4 hours.

Shred with two forks in the crockpot.

That’s it!

Works great for a Sunday meal prep for lunches too.

Other highlights….cards with GG + Hand And Foot night.  That bone pile is impressive, and caused a really great chain of group texts the following day.  HAF = hungover AF?  LOL!  Always a good time.  I hope my hangover is gone by the next card night.

FOUR – Flavor of the month // All About the Oreo!  Bay loved it so much….she ate mine too.  So, I’m going off her review.

I asked Bay to describe the ice cream in one word…..


Although she also added, it tastes like snickers.  Hmmm?  It looked really good though…Ha!

Fudge covered, peanut butter and classic OREO cookie pieces all combined with an OREO frosting ribbon in rich chocolate malt ice cream.



FIVE – Links I ♥

Fruit punch flavored pickles…barffff

Ohhh, this could be good

Loving this outdoor space

DIY crunch wrap supreme my be in my near future

My Madewell shopping cart is off the chain…. bag, overalls, toptop, skirt.

Bought this, but I’m hesitant to try it


Have a good one!!

  1. We didn’t do the charcoal in Tahoe! Let’s have a wine/charcoal night? Or is that counterproductive? Lol.
