Ok first off I just have to say HOLY SMOKES YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST. Seriously, I am blown away by your excitement, support, and encouragement over the news I shared about moving in my last post. I was honestly a bit nervous to even share what’s going on because I wasn’t sure how you all would react, but it’s so cool to see that you’re exited with us and eager to follow along on the journey. Your excitement makes me even more pumped to share this process and I can’t wait to see what happens. Today I do have a house update for you guys (we had an offer in on a home we loved!) and a few other favorites from the week. Enjoy!
Last night at about 7:30pm we got news that our offer on the house was not accepted. They countered with a higher offer (which was barely off asking price) so we decided to walk away. I was bummed about it at first, but we weren’t comfortable going up to their price, so we let it go. I know God will bring the right one along soon and I’m trusting in that. The house hunt continues! Hopefully we can go check out a few new options this weekend. I’ll keep you all updated!
CBD + Anxiety
I’ve talked a lot on IG stories about using CBD oil at part of my every day routine. I started using it back in October when I was really struggling with my anxiety and it’s been such a huge help for me. I did a ton of research before I started and I was amazed to see how CBD can help with things like anxiety, sleep, migraines, pain, etc. It’s pretty amazing stuff (and totally safe!). Anyway, it’s been a huge help for me–I’m sleeping better than EVER in my entire life and my anxiety is much more mild. I just feel more balanced and even more patient. I pay for a monthly subscription from Equilibria and my routine is one 10 mg softgel in the morning (or two if I’m feeling particularly stressed or anxious) and then one full dropper of oil before bed. I also have one of their Calm Rollers that I keep in my purse!
After Equilibria saw me raving about their products on IG stories, they reached out and gave me a coupon code for you guys! It’s usually good for 15% off, but for two days ONLY you can use SARAHJOY20 to get 20% off your order!! This flash sale ends tomorrow night, so you’ll have to hurry if you want to order! PS: If you’re new to CBD you can email the folks at Equilibria and they’ll connect you with their dosage specialist who can give you guidance on creating a routine for yourself. As always, I’m not an expert or medical professional. I’m just sharing something that has truly helped me in my daily life!
Photo Gallery Wall
If you’ve been around the blog for a while you might remember when I hung up this photo gallery wall on our staircase a few years ago. Well I ordered the frames from Home Depot, but I just found the exact same set on Amazon for a great price! I love this set because it comes with a template you hang on the wall, so it really only takes about 10 minutes to hang the entire set of frames. It’s super easy!! Highly recommend if you’d like to create a family photo gallery wall in your home.
Other tidbits from the week:
- I’m still trying to eat keto, but I’ve kinda been slacking lately. No carbs is really hard! Especially when you’re trying to work out. I’m not sure it’s the diet for me, but I do want to keep up with the lower sugar intake. I feel so much better when I don’t eat sugar.
- The pink chair at my vanity desk is back in stock!
- I’ve been thinking about trying these peel and stick tiles in our mudroom. I’ve heard really good things about them and it would be fun to try! Plus they’re super affordable and much easier than replacing tile.
- I rounded up some Birkenstock sandal dupes here.
- My everyday makeup products are all listed HERE. This brightening primer is AMAZING. (Use SARAHJOY for 15% off!)
- Obsessed with this staircase and all that wood work. I definitely want high ceilings in our next home!
Well that’s a wrap for me today!! Thank you so much for hanging out with me on the blog. Hope you have the best weekend!! xoxo
