Friday Favorites! – The Hungry Runner Girl

Running at home is fun and all until the kids find you and give you puppy dog eyes to get you off and do things for them;). 10 miles @ 8:30 pace with three stops along the way.

During my run, I looked out the window and saw my neighbor shoveling our driveway.  People are the best.

When I asked Beck what song he wanted me to sing to him in the morning, he replied, “Jack Skellington.”  Andrew is so proud.

My sister came over to plan the built-ins… It’s going to be amazing.

The kids spent 3 hours outside after school.  I swear we had 5 inches of fresh snow, so they were living their best life.

And then we had sheet pan sweet potato nachos for dinner.  I roast the sweet potatoes and then top it with whatever we have.  It is one of my favorite easy meals.

Now for a few favorites:

*I first got the Dyson Airstraight a bit ago, and after a few uses, I concluded that I didn’t like it.  My sister told me to go with the Shark FlexStyle instead, so I was able to return the Dyson and get the Shark for half the price (Costco had a deal on it a bit ago, but I’m not sure if it does anymore).  I cannot get enough of this thing on my hair and the girl’s hair:

It is extremely easy to use.   The hair gets pulled into the curling wand while drying it, using way less heat, resulting in less damage.  The Shark also gives our hair much more volume (one thing I didn’t like about the Dyson Airstraight).

I usually do my hair straight (hence why I tried the Airstraight), so I use this tool that comes with it to dry it as I round brush.  Long story short, my sister’s other expertise other than design is hair, and she isn’t one to spend a good amount of money on things, so if she recommends it and falls in love with it, you know it is good.  If I have learned one thing in my life… if my sister says it’s worth it, it is:).

I also love curling my hair with it, and it has motivated me to wash it more often because it does all the work for me.  The curls last much longer (days for the girls) than when I use a curing iron.

Let’s go ahead and add this Mango Cardigan to today’s favorites since I clearly wear it a lot.  Mango wins for the softest sweaters.  I just got this one for Spain, too!

*Andrew gave me this backpack for Christmas, and I’m pretty sure this is my new favorite color:
