Despite feeling rather exhausted right now (thank you, Time Change, for killing any sleep progress we made with Chase this week), I am pretty darn psyched because we have more visitors arriving in town this weekend! Right when this blog post is published, I’m off to the airport to pick up Laurel and then my friend Merri is flying in town later this evening. Heck yes!! I am so pumped to have two of my best friends from college staying with us for the weekend!
(Throwback pic from 2011!)
Quality time with my two BFFs is definitely what I’m loving most today, but it wouldn’t be Friday around here if we didn’t come together to share more about what we’ve all been loving this week. Please feel free to chime in and share something that is making you smile this week in the comments section of this post.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Things I’m Loving Friday
- iCloud Photo Sharing
I absolutely love iCloud photo sharing! I have a few different photo streams set up with friends that we add pictures to everyday and love checking in with my best buddies! They’re like our own private group Instagram/Facebook account but you only see photos from people you really want to see photos from, so it’s a lot of fun! Plus, the photos we share are often ridiculous and make me laugh, so they’re a constant bright spot in my day. If some of your best friends live far away from you like mine do, I highly recommend setting up a group photo sharing stream!
A deal at Target totally suckered me into buying these vitamins (buy two, get a $5 Target gift card) and I’m so glad I fell for the marketing tactic because they are delicious and don’t include any artificial colors like so many other gummy vitamins. My doctor told me to continue taking pre- or postnatal vitamins and these are my new favorite! Gummy vitamins are where it’s at, baby!
- Zipper Onesies
Bless whoever created zipper onesies! Without a ton of tiny snaps to button, zipper onesies make nighttime diaper changes so much easier. I am a BIG TIME fan. (Chase is wearing this one in the above photo. Only $7!))
- Shopping For a New Phone Case
Now that I have a new phone on my hands (Hallelujah!), I am in the market for a new phone case. I’ve been shopping around all week but cannot seem to commit to one yet! Why does this decision feel ridiculously difficult for me? I’ve found a number of cases I love on Casetify (including all of the cases pictured above) but have yet to pull the trigger and buy one. It needs to happen soon because I feel like I am testing fate by walking around with a fragile, unprotected phone (that I did not purchase the insurance for…).
We had three chilly and rainy days in Charlotte this week and I decided the cooler weather meant it was time to bust out my Winter Dream tea! I try to save it for the holiday season since it feels like a festive treat and made myself two Winter Dream tea lattes this week. Oh so comforting!
- Friday Flashbacks
Easy Pineapple Souffle (A Thanksgiving Day must in our house. It’s not even kind of healthy, but it is totally delicious and a big-time crowd pleaser!)
45 Minute Boredom Fighting Cardio Workout (For days when you want to sweat but need to keep things moving!)
Question of the Day
