Thursday Thoughts

~Good morning!   It’s been a bit of an odd week here.  Everyone was off Monday for MLK Day, we had a few Science Olympiad practices (still not too sure about that), B’s brother was in town for a night and now here we are.  B and I also snuck in a date night this week.  We tried a new place which ended up being fantastic.  Warm rolls + crab cakes for the win!

~I mentioned it a few months ago and then never mentioned it again, but I (finally) ordered my aligners from SmileDirectClub. Up until I had my boys, my teeth were straight – I never had braces when I was younger either. But now? Not so much.  It’s not awful, but I notice it and am self-conscious. So anyway, I went and got a scan at a “Smile Shop” and will be on a 4-month plan.  I guess it takes about a month for them to make your aligners and I will make sure to report back on how things are going!

~The January 100 mile Challenge continues!   I have 34 miles left to run and I am feeling good!  The first 15 minutes and the last 2 minutes always feel the best, but you get the idea.  I feel stronger and love the way it clears my head!

~I have posted about my love for The Ordinary line a few times on here and I stumbled on these two links (here and here) which I have found to be very helpful in figuring out what to use and in what order. I am still perfecting my routine, but I can absolutely tell a difference in my skin.  It’s not breaking out plus it’s brighter and smoother.  I am sure it helps I am drinking less Diet Pepsi and more water, but The Ordinary is playing a part too!

That’s it from here! Have a great day!

    Have you ever done any research on the Korean 10 step skincare routine? Its very interesting and has me so intrigued. I think I’ve got to give it a try. Best part is I had the “western products” to start the 10 steps now and will replace with natural “korean products” when I am ready.

    Woot woot, I’ve ordered some of The Ordinary do to your IG story….I’ve been watching you tube channels trying to figure out what to start first, what not to mix … It’s so ordinary but confusing at the same time….thanks.
