But now it’s time to keep things consistent and dive into your weekly Things I’m Loving Friday blog post! Below you will find a small list of things that are making me smile this week and, as always, I’d love to hear a little bit about what you’re loving this week in the comments section of this post. Have a lovely weekend, my friends!
Things I’m Loving Friday
- Sleepy Sadie
Though watching Sadie joyfully bound around outside in her element brings me so much happiness, there is something about sleepy Sadie I just adore. Seeing Sadie tired is such a stark contrast to her usually energetic and needy personality and it just melts my heart. I snapped this photo of her on my phone when we were in Jacksonville last weekend and she passed out after a romp on the beach. Love my sweet girl!
- Sweet Mother’s Day Surprise from BBC
Miss Lindsey outdid herself again! She surprised a bunch of the Burn Boot Camp mamas with the cutest Mother’s Day gifts from our babies. Having tried to get Chase’s footprints myself a time or two, I know it is no simple feat (<- can’t resist a good pun!), so I am so grateful to Lindsey for such a sweet and thoughtful gift! She’s the BEST.
- Fabletics Swimwear
Two weeks ago, Chase and I started swim lessons. (I’ll fill you guys in more about this soon. We are LOVING them!) Before we went to our first lesson, I asked one of my girlfriends who recommended the lessons to me what to wear and she replied, “Just a swim diaper is fine!” No, no, no… I meant what should I wear? Ha! I had no idea what moms typically wear to swim lessons… Speedos? Tankinis? Bikinis?
I busted out an old one-piece from my diving days and while it worked just fine for the first lesson, it felt a little too snug for real long-term wear, so I started to look for another option. And then I got an email from Fabletics with their May styles that featured swimwear! WOOP! I immediately ordered the Crest bikini which fits almost like a long sports bra with a higher neckline and coverage right past my ribcage. Perfect for grabby baby hands! I love the mesh detailing and sporty look!
- $1 Notecards
Target’s Dollar Spot gets me every time. After Chase’s 9-month check up on Wednesday afternoon, we popped into Target to make a return and I immediately got sucked into the Dollar Spot as always. This section of the store simply calls to me and I usually find something I didn’t know I needed – like a new candle, tumbler, gift bag, etc. – and on Wednesday I threw a couple adorable $1 notecards into my cart. I always try to keep blank cards on hand at home and thought these designs were so cute! Can’t beat that for A DOLLAR.
- Kentucky Derby Outfit
For those who asked, here are the details from my Kentucky Derby party outfit! I am sorry I once again forgot to include them in my blog post. I will try to get better about this!!!
Top: O’Neill Trina Open Back Crop Top (via Nordstrom – The back is the best part! It’s backless with a pretty bow at the bottom. Just FYI, I wore a sticky bra with it.)
- Friday Flashbacks
Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Overnight Oats (One of my all-time favorite overnight oats recipes!
45 Minute Boredom Fightin’ Cardio Workout (A seriously sweaty cardio workout, perfect for days when you want to change things up and keep boredom at bay!)
- Around The Web
Stellar Sale: Lorna Jane on Zulily (Their sports bras are the cutest and their shorts are fantastic – the waistband doesn’t dig into your side and they’re flattering on wider hips! I bought two pairs!)
