It's Been a While, 5 Things.


It's been a while since I've done any Friday link ups and today I felt like sharing some things from my week. It's going to be a good day here in Oklahoma, the sun is actually shining and the temps will be near 60 today and over the weekend. I know it's just a weather tease, but it's a nice little break from the frigid temps. Lucky me, I get to escape to FL for a few days though... More on that below. Hope you've had a great week and cheers to weekend!


one
Sunday morning I'm flying to FL to spend part of the week with my family! I haven't seen them since they left Oklahoma in September for Christian's TBI rehab, so I'm eager to see them and where they are currently staying. Follow me along on Insta if you'd like. I'll be doing a recap and update on Christian after I return.  

two
I have been loving Pure Barre Tulsa the last month and a half and shared my thoughts on it yesterday. If you've been curious or thought about trying PB, don't miss it (here)!

three
Sunday we babysat our friends little boy and we sure enjoyed playing with him. He gave us some good laughs! I was a tiny bit bitter, they were going to the Garth Brooks concert that I'd tried for hours to get tickets to with no luck... I got over it though ;)

four
I'm finally trying out some oils! I've wanted to for so long, but I'd always get overwhelmed when I'd look into them. I got the doTerra Introductory Kit this week. So far I've been putting lemon in my water & hot tea and I've used the lavender on my pillow and my lips a few times. Any favorite uses for lemon, peppermint or lavender oils? I have a lot to learn!

five
Our lil Harley Boy is home with us. We got him over Christmas, but he wasn't quite old enough so we had to wait a couple more weeks. He came home Sunday, he's fluffy & precious. He's feisty, purrs at any touch and likes to snuggle at bedtime. Pixie & Harley are total twins. They wrestle and chase each other all over the house, just like we knew they would. #bestiesforlife


Any big plans this weekend?

  3. Hooray for getting to see your brother. I've been following on FB ever since you did the call out for Christmas cards and am praying and cheering him on with his recovery. I hope you have a wonderful visit.

    I'm intrigued to learn more about oils. I've wanted to try them for awhile, but haven't bit the bullet yet. Would love to know your thoughts.

  5. Your little kitty is the cutest! But really Pixie and Harley together are the cutest! I'm interested in trying out some more oils too, so I'm interested to hear what you do with them! I use peppermint for headaches (on my temple or in the shower), lavender in the bathtub and lemon in my kitchen cleaner. Have a great weekend visiting your family!

I'm so excited for you that you get to go spend some time with your family - is that a recent photo of Christian? He looks great! I look forward to hearing all your updates. Travel safe lady, and have a good time! xo

  10. How adorable are Harley and Pixie together! I've recently gotten into using essential oils too, but feel like I'm still just trying to figure it all out. I drink lemon every morning, and peppermint is good to use for headaches. Enjoy the warm weather, super jealous of that!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh my gosh, Pixie and Harley are precious together! SO cute. I've never tried any essential oils, so I look forward to hearing more of your thoughts on them. I'm jealous of your 60 degrees too, but it's warmed up to the 30s here yay! Have a wonderful weekend with your family in FL! :-)

  13. I seriously love that your kitten and puppy match!! I mean seriously! And I'm so happy you'll get to spend some time with your family!! And in sunny FL no less! I agree, it's a pretty sunny day here finally. I don't mind the cold, but the overcast/rainy/gloomy weather was messing with my brain!!

  14. Oh my gosh - they are TOTALLY twins!!!!!
    Have a great trip with your family!!!

  15. Yay! I look forward to hearing about your trip! I'll def be following on Instagram :) Yay! So glad you go that oils kit! That's the one I was considering at first too...and I ended up getting a similar thing but from Young Living. Peppermint is my hero. I seriously use it every day - for digestion issues, nausea, headaches, allergies, congestion and alertness when I get tired at work. I usually put a drop under my tongue...just know it'll be strong but I love the taste! Put it in a veggie capsule if you don't like the taste. Have a great weekend, Mia!

  48. Pixie and Harley look like a match made in heaven..how fun! Pure Barre looks absolutely amazing. I haven't tried it yet since there's no classes in my small town (or surrounding towns) but I do plan to get to at least one class at some point. I have a dance background, so think I'd really enjoy it. Nice to 'meet' you via the H54F link-up! Following along on social.
