Friday Faves

Hey friends! I hope you are all well. I wanted to share a few favorites lately.  We haven’t done much other than work, sleep, beach haha but I am not mad about it! 

1. I am loving all positive mantras and things!  This crazy time of our lives is something for the books I tell ya!  I have been staying off news channels and most of social media (unless I’m connecting with like-minded people and sharing our business!) I can’t tell you HOW MUCH THAT MATTERS!  When I log into FB and see the ranting, raving, the mask discussions, political this and that–#overit

I focus on my family, health, finances and that is about it! I’m really loving instagram and finding fellow real estate investors across the country who are focused on their goals and not worrying so much about whether or not someone where’s a mask in their car.  (It’s really none of our business!)

2.  I tried Hello Fresh for the last two weeks and all I can say is, YES!! Yes it is worth the money, yes it is worth not being stressed out to figure out “What do I cook for dinner?!” You guys, I was literally turning to frozen meals 1-3x a week because the state of our life is so chaotic right now.  I can only attribute it to “birthing a baby” in a sense.  When you own your own business and work for yourselves, and then GROW said business, it’s overwhelming.  I know when we get all systems up and running, it will be grand but for now–it’s fasten your seatbelts and GO TIME. 

With that said, we have tried things we haven’t really done before (or in a long time!).  I’ve learned a few little hacks which are always to have on hand!  Last night we did burgers with onion/tomato jam, and a delicious mayo/sour cream/roasted garlic spread….TO DIE FOR with the homemade potato fries!

Here we did the mozzarella/panko chicken breasts— SO easy and yummy!! Green beans and couscous came in the meal, and I threw in extra bread sticks from Aldi, because my kiddos love them.  

Here’s a link for $40 off your box!! 

3. My birthday last week!!  I spent the day in the sun with my sis and my neighbor came over as we all hung out in the driveway. It was a beautiful day!

How cool is this candle from my Dad & step mom?

My sis knows me SO well–pretty pink wrapping, a bottle of Rosé, Starbucks gift card and a fabulous candle too!!  My mom gifted me some birthday money and I treated myself to a brand new Robe.

4.  I enjoyed these Hey Mama rosé in a can!  They DO pack a punch….you can’t drink too many because it has a lot of alcohol, so careful on that one! You can order some here.  Be sure to use my code JENND10 for a coupon!  I also love this suit from Venus and my necklace isS&D. My sunnies are Ray Bans, but I found these cute dupes on Amazon for under $20!!!!

5.  I’m obsessed with this lipstick and lip gloss !! It’s my daily go to and I just love the feel and haven’t had any issues with dry lips–wahoo!!

 

Tell me, what are you loving lately!?

Ugly Disco

The Disco is over!! (insert sad face!) We have now been to the Ugly Disco 8 times.  I was so excited Friday night, I had trouble sleeping, and I actually went back through my old blog posts to count and see! (Pics are below!)

It’s a great cause as the money is raised to support the Golissano Children’s Hospital here in Rochester.

Friday I got my nails done in a white gel polish to match my go go boots!

I wanted to get a really fun and flirty light pink pout, so I found some of these drugstore lip products to play with.  I really liked how they came out!!

Cheers!

I got this super fun dress on Amazon & I also needed a new pair of Go Go Boots because my old pair literally broke for good last year!! These were super comfy and I could have kept on dancing all night long!!

White Go Go Boots (I wear a size 9 shoe and I got the large; they fit perfectly!)

Dress I ordered a small in the dress, and it was small! It said up to 120 lbs which I’m around 138 here, so it was snug.  I always wear booty shorts under the dress anyway, but it did come with a cute headband, clip on earrings (I didn’t wear) and these super fun pink glasses!

And can we all just say a big giant thank you for spray tans!! Goodness an all over tan glow makes a girl feel SO good!!

I’ve been trying to work out and eat better, more consistently; I’m not where I *want* to be, but I am happy with the progress I’m making with the efforts I’ve been putting in.  I have been loving my workouts at the gym and look forward to continuing my health journey.   It’s no joke staying fit and living a busy life!  I have to thank all those years of dance for making it easier for my legs to get into good shape though.  Muscle memory is real.  (And Catalyst is the bomb!)

We took an uber there and back.

Joe and his get up gets so many compliments and I took so many photos of him and other ladies it was quite hysterical!

Joe’s long time friend Chris and his girlfriend are always fun to hang out with.  Thanks for a fun night guys!!

I ran into my friend Becki who was dressed up as the 1970’s Honey Nut Cheerio Bee!!!

It’s so hard to take photos when you’re all dancing to great music haha!

And some flashbacks from year’s past…

2019

It’s seriously the best time and we look forward to going every year!  The only years we didn’t go were right after we had the babies (both were born in January and the disco was in February, so mama wasn’t quite ready to boogie in a little disco dress!) And another year his cousin got married, but other than that you can expect us to bring the house down each year at the Ugly Disco!
