Friday Five: Pausa, LipSense and More!

Hey there, friends! I hope everyone has had a nice 4-day week. I love short weeks! Just yesterday I thought it was only Wednesday and then was happily surprised when I realized it was really Thursday.

| O N E | We've had a pretty good week, although poor Lukey came down with some kind of 24 hour illness where he didn't want to eat, had a 102+ fever and just wanted to sleep and be held. I hate seeing my little ones sick so much that I actually lose sleep worrying, so it was a rough and tiring couple days. Happy to report that he is on the mend and feeling much more like himself now, although we still don't know what the cause was.

| T W O | Guess what? Last week I signed on to become a LipSense distributor! It's still a little surreal to me, because I've never ever pictured myself selling anything, but I've become so hooked on this product that I just really felt compelled to give it a try. I went back and forth over the decision for a few weeks before deciding to commit -- originally I was worried about what people would think, but I'm so glad I made this decision because so far it's been a lot of fun!

If you're even in the slightest bit interested in hearing more about this product or even just want to check out what I'm selling you can follow along on my xoxobycolleen Instagram feed where I'll be sharing what I have in stock, the colors I'm into and even a giveaway now and again. Have some questions? Want to place an order? Feel free to email me at or send me a DM (direct message) on Instagram!

Thanks for your support!

| T H R E E | Last weekend was Labor Day weekend so Monday we were able to fit in a little family-fun day at the beach. The weather had been SO hot here, but of course the day we made it out to the beach it was overcast and even a little cool. Owen had a blast splashing around in the waves and running around in the sand. We built some sandcastles and chased away some seagulls. Luke wasn't too into the ocean until the end of the day and preferred eating snacks and watching Owen from the blanket. Afterward we did a little exploring and then had lunch at one of our favorite spots The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. It was a great way to end the long weekend!

| F O U R | We also got out for a date night last Saturday! It was the first time in a long time that we've gone to dinner AND a movie in the same night. We had dinner at Pausa, which is a newish spot in downtown San Mateo. We shared the focaccia, the sausage & kale pizza and the arugula salad -- all of which were fantastic! Keith had a Fieldwork Brew Co. beer and I tried the specialty cocktail that had gin, pineapple bitters and some other delicious stuff. We saw Dunkirk, a war movie, and it was great -- especially if you enjoy something suspenseful!

| F I V E | We've got another fun-filled and busy weekend ahead of us with Owen's first soccer game, team photos and the first 9er game of the season. I hope you have a great weekend!
