Hi! Remember me? It feels really good to sit down to blog this morning.  I have definitely missed it this past week or so.  But with preparing for a move, keeping my current house constantly show ready, being a full-time mommy (Is there any other kind?), and lots of fun social engagements, blogging kind of got pushed to the side.

Happy Friday! Here are my favorites from the week… Apothederm Moisturizing Cleanser While I tend to stick to one skin care routine for awhile, I love trying out new face washes.  This one by Apothederm is wonderful, especially if you have dry skin.  It contains avocado oil, carrot, and seabuckthorn- all ingredients that fight the effects of aging and add hydration to the skin.  I have been liking it so much that I actually might stick with it for awhile…which says a lot coming from me.   Kettlebell The first time that I...
