Things I Loved in April


Hello friends! It's the last Wednesday of the month and time to link up with Shay and Sheaffer for this month's What's Up Wednesday! The prompts are highlighted, so if you're a blogger, check it out and join the fun; if not, I'd love it if you participated in the comments! Here's what's up this past month!

What We're Eating

Quiches are easy to make and a good weeknight staple. I like this spinach and bacon recipe. I also can't seem to get enough comfort food, and crockpot chicken and dumplings are always good. On a healthier note, this rosemary chicken, bacon, and avocado salad is delicious!


What I'm Reminiscing About

We put all of our belongings into storage and moved in with family at the end of March. Our lease was up, and our plan is to move to a warmer climate. Obviously, that's on hold since we can't travel to figure out where, but I'm so glad we are living in our old neighborhood where our daughter grew up. We actually live directly behind the house we sold 5 years ago so she could go to a different high school. Even though we have to social distance right now, I'm so happy to be back in the hood with all of my friends. And, luckily we have the technology to hang out virtually! 


What I'm Loving

For the past week, I’ve been trying out BIOEFFECT EFG Plumping and Firming Serum, and EFG Eye Serum from SkinStoreand my skin is loving it! What is EFG? It stands for Epidermal Growth Factor, and the brand has replicated it in barley. Clean ingredients are important to me, and these plant-based serums spark your skins renewal process boosting the production of collagen and rebalancing your skins moisturize levels, providing long term anti-aging effects! I can see a noticeable difference when I wake up in the morning. My face looks hydrated, and my skin feels smoother! The under-eye puffiness is gone, and I look less fatigued! I’m excited to continue to use these and share my results with you!

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, these would be the perfect gift for the mother figure in your life! Get 25% off at SkinStore with code JILL.

What We've Been Up To

My friend Andrea did a How Well Does He Know You blog post a few weeks ago and shared the questions for this fun Q&A. I got my husband to play along, and for the most part, he answered correctly! Here's what he said:

What do I do when I'm not with you? Shop (I disagree and say blogging or reading)
What is my favorite movie? Love Actually
If I could go anywhere, where would I go? Paris
How do I annoy you? You don't (haha good answer!)
What is my favorite TV show? Twilight Zone 
Who is my celebrity crush? Mark Walhberg
You get a phone call that I'm in trouble, who am I with? my mom
What do I hate? COVID and being quarantined
What is something I love to eat? Cheetos. What is my favorite drink? Moscow Mule
What gets my temper going the most? Technology
What is my shoe size? 9
Three words to describe me? My best friend (aww! he's the sweetest!)

Side note: I don't really have a favorite TV show, but I do love the old ones from the late '50s/early '60s like Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and Bewitched!





What I'm Watching

We finished The Stranger on Netflix, and I have a few episodes left of Dead to Me. I'm currently watching The Biggest Loser and Project Runway with my daughter. If you need some binge-watching ideas, I rounded up some of my favorite shows in this post.


What I'm Wearing

Our weather is still bouncing between winter and spring. Some days I'm wearing cozy hoodies and the next I'm wearing a warm-weather dress. I'd love it if you followed me on Instagram and LIKEtoKNOW.it, if you're not already, where you'll find more outfit inspiration! 







What Else is New

If you missed yesterday's post, I've got a roundup of the Best Mother's Day Gift Ideas. I'll be back tomorrow styling joggers 10 ways for my Thursday Fashion Files Linkup with Carrie! I hope you will stop by for some style inspo and to linkup your posts with us!
