I’m ready for the weekend and am looking forward to spending time with family and friends. We have plans to meet up with my girlfriends and their families for a big baby playdate on Saturday and assuming Chase is back to his normal self, I’m looking forward to getting everyone together! (Our pediatrician said Chase is not contagious at all and is fine to be around others but I’m proceeding with caution!)
Other than that, I’m hoping to start a new book, spend time outside and get some work done because I’ve felt a little behind all week. I’m crossing my fingers for good weather all weekend, too!
Now let’s move things along and tackle your weekly Things I’m Loving Friday post where we all talk about what we’re loving most each week. As always, I’d love to hear a little bit about what is making you smile this week in the comments section.
Have a great weekend!!
Things I’m Loving Friday
Once again I owe you guys a big thanks for recommending another great novel to me when I was in search of a page-turner. I loved this book so much and stayed up WAY too late on Wednesday night because I absolutely could not put it down once the trial began.
The book is a courtroom drama that follows one attorney as he strives to prove his son is innocent after he is accused of murdering one of his classmates. The writer is witty and smart and the twists that occur at the end blew my mind. Such a crazy ending! It is a little slow to start but once Jacob’s trial began, I did not stop reading and ended up feverishly turning the pages until I was done. A great read!
- Your Comment’s On Tuesday’s Post
You guys are the best. I know I say that a lot, but I sincerely mean it and when I read comments like the thoughtful, vulnerable and insightful comments you took the time to share on Tuesday’s post about what I wish I knew before I had Chase, I simply have to say it again. Thank you for your honesty and openness. I am planning to go through your comments and publish a follow-up post featuring your feedback in the coming weeks because so many of them deserve more attention. Thank you for weighing in!
- Pampered Mommy Box (April 2016)
The latest delivery from my friends at Pampered Mommy Box was another hit! They always do such a great job of finding products that make me smile (and that I always use!) and this month’s package was such a nice little pick-me-up to receive in the mail. This month’s box included the most lovely smelling kitchen soap and lotion (I’m a sucker for anything coconut!), a super-conditioning lip crayon made with mango oil and shea butter, a ridiculously adorable pineapple oven mitt, a to-do list note pad and a packet of dried mango that did not make it into the photo because I ate it the minute I opened the box.
If there is a mom in your life who could use a little extra pampering one month (or maybe that mom is YOU), this box really is such a neat way to send someone a thoughtful little pick-me-up in the mail! They passed along a coupon code for me to share, so if you use the code PBFINGERS, you’ll receive 10 percent off a purchase.
This was a baby shower gift from my blogging buddy Brittany and it is so cute! With the onset of Chase’s first ear infection, we’ve been reading up a storm and cuddling a lot over here and I’ve read this book to him a few times over the past few days. The book is actually quite funny and does a great job of explaining blogging in a way that’s entertaining and humorous. I just wanted to put this book on your radar in case there is a blogger in your life who is expecting a little one. It was such a cute gift. Thank you, Brittany!

Taco Pasta Skillet (For the nights when you can’t decide whether tacos or pasta sound more appealing!)
25 Minute Treadmill Interval Workout (My friend Laurel tagged me on an Instagram photo of her completing this workout last week and brought it to my attention again! It’s a tough one but the intervals keep things moving!)
