So Millennial Mommy is back in full force with my new Friday Favorites series. Tune in every Friday to check out what we have been up to and to see my favorite things from the week! This week we are back in the Netherlands for Daniels US Visa interview and his Medical Check. These are the final steps to getting Daniels Visa before we (hopefully) move back to the states in January!
This week I also attended an ‘International Mom Group’ where I met some other awesome international English speaking mums in the area around where we live in The Netherlands! It was great to get away from the farm and talk to some other mommies! It was also so good for Fé to get out and be a bit social =)
As for my favorites this week….
My skin tends to get really dull and dry when the weather gets colder so I ordered this face oil as per the recommendation of Julie over at Peanut Butter Fingers, and I am sooo happy with it! I mix a little bit in with my normal Vanicream moisturizer and I feel like it has taken my skin to the next level! I feel like I have that ‘glow’ that I have been looking for!!
- Spending Time with Family
Since we have been back in The Netherlands, we have been seeing a lot of Daniels family. We are trying to see everyone as much as possible since we will be moving to the States soon and who knows how long it will be before we get to see everyone again! I am so grateful that Fé has been able to get to know her great-grandparents on Daniels Father’s side of the Family. We have been seeing them twice a week since we have gotten back and it is such a joy to watch Fé bond with them!
Last Tuesday, we went over to Daniels brothers place for dinner. I wanted to bring something for dessert so I whipped up this super quick and super yummy cinnamon bread that I found over here at Genius Kitchen. It requires very little ingredients (everything I already had in my pantry) and turned out great!
- American Horror Story
So, we are probably super late to the party here but Daniel and I have just started watching American Horror Story and we are totally obsessed! We have been binge watching it every night and are already in Season 3 (kind of embarrassing how fast we have watched it!) If you are looking for a new series to pick up I 100% recommend American Horror Story! What TV series are you guys watching these days?
So, as many of you know, we have left England and gone back to The Netherlands for just a few months while we finish Daniels Visa process. This means I am without a gym for a few months! I didn’t want to let my fitness game slip so I decided to download the Freeletics fitness app so I could continue to train without the gym. The app customizes quick 10-30 minute bodyweight workouts for your body type, condition, etc. The workouts are, to say the least, REALLY TOUGH! I am on week two and I have already started to notice a difference in my abs and legs! IF you are looking for a great way to train at home I encourage you to try Freeletics!! They also have a running and nutrition app that I have read great reviews about but have not them myself =)
We LOVE Usborne’s Touchy-Feely Books! Fé is just at the perfect age where she can appreciate flipping the board-book pages, and feeling all the different textured sections of each page. Unfortunately, I think they are not as widely available in the US as they are in the UK, but they do stock a few at Bed Bath and Beyond!
