Thinking about// finding my motivation for my workout. (Daily internal conversation over coffee.)

Drinking// Yup, you guessed it, coffee. Love having a sweet little Starbucks employee living in my basement! Also, this is the time where I motivate myself for my workout!

Reading// Well... I just finished up The Giver again, I still have An Abundance of Katherines to finish up and a couple other books. Hmm... what are they again...

Watching// Baby Daddy on Netflix. We're kind of running low on shows right now, what do you suggest?

Thankful For// A new job opportunity for the mister. And at least one 3 hour chunk of sleep last night.

Enjoying// Our clean carpets and couch. Got a new carpet cleaner last night and started cleaning away. Love a clean house. Oh and some of the cute pics on my phone as I'm helping clean up some space on it!

Loving// My smaller size stretchy jeans and smaller size t-shirt. It's such a great feeling to know that your hard work (okay it's only about 30 mins a day) is actually paying off.

Listening to// nothing but me typing away. My girls are still sleeping- thank goodness- it's only 6:50 right now, and it was a late and long night, especially for Miss M. Can't wait for these iron drops to start kicking in more and helping her sleep better! 

What are you up to currently? Also-- do you have a favorite smoothie recipe?!

Natures Best Vitamin C Serum Review

It wasn't until I started getting older and after having both of my girls that I really stepped up my skin care routine. I mean I didn't really care what the bottles said and didn't have any special tricks up my sleeve for nice skin. Heck I'm not sure I even used a moisturizer until this last year. (Eek! I know right?!)

I've been using a nice face wash as well as a tone lately, and more recently I added Natures Best Vitamin C Serum. To my morning make-up routine. Just a little about this Vitamin C Serum:

Made for all skin types.

Made from Pure Natural Organic ingredients.
Helps to reduce acne (removes toxins).
Creates Collagen (gives firmer, healthier skin).
Reduces Skin damage
Makes skin look younger

Has a lot to live up to doesn't it? Well not going to lie, I was pretty hesitant about this stuff actually working. It wasn't until I was 21 that I started breaking out, and when I did it was bad, and oh the scars it left behind. 

Ick, I really thought I had taken good pictures. I'm really hoping the after pictures will show a change. This was the day I got the Vitamin C, the first time I actually put it on before bed. I loved the dropped in the bottle, it made it so easy to put straight on my face. It rubbed in nicely and didn't have a scent. 

Ha, so maybe my before & afters aren't that great, but I can tell you, when I look into the mirror, I can see a difference. My makeup covers my scars or current breakouts better. My skin is softer and brighter. Absolutely love using the Vitamin C. It's become part of my daily makeup routine. 

Have you used Vitamin C Serum before? What did you like about it? If you're thinking about it, what questions do you have?

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Sunday Social 7/13

1. Tell us about the family you grew up in, parents, siblings, grandparents.
I come from a fairly good sized family. For the first 12 years of my life I was the oldest child, I have 1 younger brother and 3 younger sisters, at about age 12 my parents gave us an older brother. We grew up in California while the majority of our family was in Utah. It wasn't until I was 16 that we made the move back. 

Missing our oldest brother. And this is us 3 years ago. We all look different now. 

2. Tell us about your husband.
This guy is my best friend. Seriously. We've been married coming up on 6 years, and together for a little over 6 1/2 years. He's supportive and everything I am not and everything I need him to be. 

3. Tell us about your children. 
My two girls are my world. As of right now, they complete our family. They're everything we wanted and more. A is 3 and M is 1 and they're best friends. They do everything together. They keep me smiling. 

4. Tell us about your best friends. 
Eek. I don't know if I even have any. After moving to Utah at such an odd age in my life it's been hard to really connect with anyone, everyone had already had their groups in highschool. I do have a friend that I've kept in touch with since high school and she is absolutely amazing, but we only see each other maybe once a year. 

5. Tell us about any other special people in your life.
My siblings' kids. They all have big places in my heart. They are my girls' best friends, lots of times it feels like they're growing up more like siblings than cousins. We have a new niece coming this week and we cannot wait to meet her!

6 This Week.

This week. 

Teething Babies. Goodness. Teething with my oldest was a breeze. She would take a little tylenol, nap and be fine. Her sister is the opposite. Doesn't sleep, stomach is sick, completely miserable, 24/7 until those teeth are in. Add her teething cousin to the mix, and we've got a long week. 

State daycare inspection. Getting ready for the Family Friends & Neighbors inspection of my house nearly killed me. I was so worried about every little thing. Good news, we passed! I can keep watching my nephew for a couple more months till the next inspection! 

Exercising. I made it! Actually worked out all 5 days this week. Some days I even got double workouts in! Score! Seriously loving Blogilates right now. Let's hope this motivation/love lasts! 

Meal planning. Been struggling with my meal planning this week, really need some new Paleo recipes to try, ones that preferably aren't over the top expensive. 

Products. I've gotten quite a few products to review this week! Loving them so far! Can't wait to share with you! 

Blogging. Finally taking the time not only to work on my blog, but to reach out and comment on other blogs! Feels nice to be back into it and reconnecting and connecting with you!

How has your week been?
