February In Numbers

Happy Leap Year Day! That's probably not a thing, but hey, I'm making it a thing! Today I'm linking up with Deena for my month in numbers.

7 - The number of accidents Mini Fox had before she didn't have an accident. She is totally different than Baby Fox in that girl can hold her pee! She only had to pee 4 times on Friday, we almost gave up on Saturday, because she showed NO signs of wanting to go pee on the toilet. On Saturday we almost gave up and Mini Fox said that she didn't want underwear, but then last minute changed her mind. So we said Saturday was the last day, and then just before dinner, she said she had to go, we took her and no accident trying to get to the potty!

1 - The number of nights that Mini Fox didn't have an accident. Seriously she went from not even getting it, to it clicking and she woke up Sunday morning called out to us that she had to go potty, woke up with a dry diaper and then just went potty. It was crazy! We remembered that Baby Fox got interested in potty training watching a Daniel Tigers Neighborhood potty episode, we found it on Netflix and played it for Mini Fox and she all of a sudden got it, crazy right?

2 - The number of birthday parties we went to this month

8 - The number of allergy shots I got...way down from last month and the month before! woo hoo! Pretty soon it's going to be 4 and it's going to be awesome!
5 - The number of times I got to work out! 2 times at the gym and 3 runs in. So excited to get back at it!
14 - The number of selfies I took this month, way down from previous months...disappointing...

31 - The number of days next month I am going to attempt to wear everything in my closet. I figure I'll never do it if I don't put it out here on the blog. So I'm following Lana and Abbie in their quest to wear everything in their closet. While I might not be able to do that, I'm going to at least attempt to do it for March. So there you go, it's out there! If you want to take a peek into my closet, click here. So now you know what I'm up against.

4ish - Well technically 2 full videos and 2 1 minutes videos, but I did a Make-Up Haul and a Beauty Box Unboxing on my YouTube Channel. If you haven't stopped by, go check out some videos and say hi and subscribe!

1 - Pinterest craft been there done that!

21 - Hair Styles done for my Hair Challenge!

5,000,0000 - Okay that might be an exaggeration, but it feels like it, but it's the number of times my kids made me smile because they were smile. It's contagious, cheesy I know. But we'll go with it.

These were taken last week.

Cause everyone wearing a diaper and cowboy boots right?

1.5 - The number of hours that Baby Fox climbed on the rock wall and he wanted to keep going, but we made him leave.

I think that's all I have for this month. Now go check out what everyone else is up to!

Friday Favorites #58

 In case you missed it this week:

Monday: Weekend Recap

Pictures of these two...I love getting pictures of them when I'm away from home.

My Dad took Mini Fox to the petting zoo on Tuesday.

While this guy got to go to Disneyland. Can we say SPOILED!

 I went to a committee meeting for a non-profit fundraising gala I am helping to organize, and got this picture from Mr. Playing dress up, they love it.

I think this definitely is worth a mention in my Favorites, next week the ladies over at The Blended Blog are starting a new Perspective Style Series. How it works: Each week a different Contributor decided what her own style was and what she was going to style. Then the rest of us are going to use that prompt and make it our own, so essentially you'll get to see 15 different woman's perspective on the same outfit. Sounds fun right? Come join us in the link up! No Blog, No problem use #theblendedblogstyle on IG, FB and Twitter. What are you waiting for, the first prompt is go layer up and get ready to post on Wednesday! Here are the prompts:

Ellen in Adele's Ear
EXCLUSIVE! Ellen DeGeneres is in Adele's ear.

Is anyone else excited for this? Starts today! As soon as the kids go down for a nap, you know where I'll be! Of course Mr. isn't out of town this weekend, so I guess no binge watching for me, haha.

In other news, we're attempting at the whole potty training thing this weekend. I have tomorrow off, so we are going to attempt three day training. Wish me luck! Happy Friday!

February Target Beauty Box

Hi Foxy Ladies (okay I'm assuming everyone reading is a woman, and if you're a man reading this, sorry about that, let me know in the comments and I'll think of something else for tomorrow).

I finally got my hot little hands on a Target Beauty Box! Say what?! I know, they usually sell out before I can get one, so I was super excited when I got one. Don't know what it is? It's sort of like Ipsy, Birchbox, etc where they give you samples of make-up/beauty products for a low price. The Target one is $7. Here's what it looked like when I got it. Wait, first if you don't want to read through it, I made my very first Unboxing video, it's at the bottom, so just scroll down if you want to see that instead. Okay, now go look at what I got :)

And the most important part, what I got inside: I got 10 things in this box.

Let's break it down (you knew I was going to do that right?)

 I got this two small shampoo and conditioner bottles. They smell exactly like coconuts, what I was expecting I'm not sure, I'll give it a try, but in general I don't like the smell of coconut.

Then I got this Texture Mist, I have no idea how it works, but I'll figure it out. It goes with my Hair Challenge I've been doing, I'll keep you posted.

I got this Vera Wang perfume, it smells really delicated and nice. Not very overpowering, definitely something I could/am going to wear. Perfect for the Spring.

Some hand lotion, again a very nice mild fragrance.

Also got something for my nails, some of those stickers, they have a cute floral print, following the Spring theme they seemed to have sent.

 A lip balm repair, this one has no scent.

I got this BB Cushion, this is probably something I will not try out. It has SPF in it, which I'm allergic to, so I'll probably give it to my sister.

Hydrating night creme, has a very faint scent.

And last but not least a little shower poof...not sure what these are called, but I definitely wanted one of these, now to go get some shower gel, haha. Maybe it will be in my next Target Box, lol.

At the very bottom of the box was a card with the name of everything in the box and what it was.

I of course made a video of everything that I got too :)

Have you ever gotten a Target Beauty Box, what are your thoughts?

Hair Challenge Link Up #8 + An Announcement!

Back with another week of hair styles. I wasn't as good this week as previous weeks, but I did do something, so there's that.

Last Thursday I did this style, inspired by this video. I had just watched it the night before, so when I woke up it was fresh in my mind. I used two rubberbands, not one like in their video #cheatercheaterpumpkineater

On Saturday I decided I wanted to try this, I think it turned out pretty good, but I think it would look better on someone who has multi color hair so you can actually see the braids. I had to move to the sun so you could see them when I was taking my pictures, haha.

This* sweater, THE MOST COMFORTABLE THING YOU WILL EVER WEAR. There are only x-small and smalls left and it's only $28, seriously go get it now if that's your size, you won't regret it. I added this* white tank top from Target under it so if it fell to one side my bra wouldn't be showing. I'm classy like that.

It's hard to show you the whole style, so put together every angle you could possibly want. It's was a super fun hairstyle to wear, and yes I'm still working on the "messy bun" why is it so hard for me?!

And then I just a jump shot...because...why not?

I tried this hair style on Sunday. This picture doesn't really do it justice, but it was super cute and I am planning on doing it again next week! I think it will go great with the style prompt that I got, but more on that later. Forgot to take a picture of it from the front. But here I am with the kids.

My last style for the week was going to WORK OUT!!!! What?! I was so happy to get back to my workout class. This is how I typically do my hair for working out. I french braid it a little and then pull it back into a ponytail. I have a lot of new growth by my hairline, which doesn't always make it into the ponytail, with the braid it gets those hairs out of the way so I'm not constantly pushing them out of my eyes.

And picture of the front, a few minutes after class ended, felt great, but boy are my abs sore today, best feeling right? Lady in the middle is the instructor and she's in her early 50's! Can you believe it? She looks great right?! The other lady is a friend in class. Happy to see both of them after 4 months off.

So those are my styles this week. My favorite was the double french braid, it was just fun to wear, although towards the end of the night I was ready to take it out, having your hair up like that does a number on the scalp.

And now for the big announcement! The ladies at The Blended Blog and I have put together a fun series for you! Each of the contributors picked a style that really represents them, and then the rest of the collaborators are going to use that prompt and make it their own. So you'll be seeing each of our takes on the style prompt, you'll get a wide variety of outfits from all different climates and different parts of the US and Canada. How fun is that? And best yet, you can participate too! We're going to do a link up each week starting next week! So get those outfits together and link up and if you don't have a blog, no problem! Just use #theblendedblogstyle on IG, FB and Twitter.

How many times it took me to get that jump shot up there...It was just me and my timer...persistence pays off.
