Good morning and happy almost weekend! I am really looking forward to the next few days, as I will be driving to Raleigh later this afternoon for my family baby shower! I cannot wait to see my mom, sister, aunt, uncle, grandma and cousins and know a good time awaits. I’m ready to get the party started!
Before I head out for the day, I wanted to take a little time to dive into your weekly Things I’m Loving Friday blog post where we all share a little bit about what we’re loving most each week. Feel free to comment below and tell me about something that is making you smile today!
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends, and I’ll see ya on Monday morning!
Things I’m Loving Friday
I’m officially 1,000 years late to the whole midi ring thing, but now that I’m on board, I can’t stop wearing them! I picked up a few inexpensive Lauren Conrad midi rings at Kohl’s (pictured above) and love their delicate look. I also always assumed midi rings would be annoying to wear since they don’t slide all the way down the finger, but I usually forget about them the minute I put them on which is a great thing in my opinion!
Yes, I know these shoes are all kinds of ridiculous but I kind of love them and want a pair with Sadie’s face on them. So, so great. (And yes, this is the kind of stuff I fall in love with while scrolling through Instagram…)
This week has been a little cooler and the dreary weather in Charlotte made me crave a hot cup of tea every day. Though I chose a different kind of tea to make almost every day, I repeated one kind a few times that surprised me a bit! Have you guys heard of Traditional Medicinals Pregnancy Tea? My mom sent me some a while ago and I finally got around to trying it last week and was surprised how much I liked it! It has a slight spearmint taste that I really enjoy.
I’ve been adding these crunchy nibs to everything from oatmeal and Greek yogurt to smoothies and trail mixes and cannot get enough of them!
Oh Enya, how I’ve missed your calming music! I used to listen to Enya when I was younger (a former dance teacher got me hooked after I first heard “Sail Away”) and recently brought one of her CDs out of hiding and have been really enjoying the way her soothing music relaxes me. It’s great background music to play in the kitchen while making dinner after a long day.
This hair highlighting spray from OGX Beauty is quickly becoming a favorite of mine! The company sent it to me a few weeks ago and I’ve been spraying it on my hair before Ryan and I head out for a day on the boat with the hope that it will naturally lighten my hair a bit. I don’t know why, but I’m still so nervous to color my hair (I keep going back and for about trying balayage after so many of you recommended it!), but this spray is a great compromise for me right now since I like it when my naturally blonde hair lightens up in the summer and really do believe the spray is helping my hair achieve a little bit more of a sun-kissed look!

That spray sounds like sun-in! A blast from the past. 🙂
Erin @ Her Heartland Soul says
Omg those dogs with the pregnancy announcements!! Too cute! Happy Friday!
Melissa @ Dancing For Food says
I’m getting my hair done today! Don’t be nervous about coloring your hair! I’m sure you’ve been told a thousand times, but you can always get semi-permanent color so it washes out after a while. Then you won’t be stuck with it the first time around.
Amanda B @ Cupcakes & Miles says
Ooh! Those rings are cute! And, don’t feel bad about jumping on the bandwagon late. I’ve never worn ’em either.
That lemon highlights spray looks awesome! I definitely picking that up. I used to have one about 100 years ago from Bath & Body Works; I loved it but have not been able to find a suitable alternative.
I’m just looking forward to a relaxing weekend over here. Have a great weekend and enjoy your family time!
Ohmygosh! It is fancy Sun In!
I’ve been wanting midi rings forever! Those are really cute.

Oh man, Enya is EVERYTHING. I have several of her cds, but like you, haven’t listened to them in years. They remind me of massages, yoga class, and good smelling candles. Basically, anything relaxing.
I love Cacao Nibs on my protein shakes. I enjoyed going on a date with my best friend to see the Broadway show Kinky Boots. It’s been a rough month and it was nice to see her.
