Friday Favorites: 03/27/15

Wow! It’s already Friday?! Craziness. The weeks are flying by!

I have to say, this is probably one of the best weeks I’ve had in awhile. I’m starting to feel more like my normal self this week, and it feels so good! It’s amazing how productive I can be when I have energy and don’t feel like sleeping 24/7. Winking smile

I missed Friday Favorites last week, so I’m excited to jump into it today. Below are some of my favorite things from this past week. Thanks to Katie and Heather for the fun link up!

Evening walks and bike rides

We’ve been taking an evening walk or bike ride lately as the days are longer and the weather is nearly perfect. I always love this family time we have together. Hunter is always in happy spirits when we are outdoors, the dogs love going on walks, and I appreciate the quality time we have together to catch up on our days.

New glasses

I’ve needed new glasses for quite some time now, so when Firmoo offered to send me a pair of their glasses, I gladly accepted! I was really impressed with their selection as well as their prices. They’re easily some of the best prices I’ve ever seen on glasses.


The ordering process online was super simple too. I chose the glasses style I wanted (I ended up choosing the Unisex Brown Full Frame Glasses), I filled in my eye glass prescription information, typed in my shipping info, and they were on their way to me!


Last but not least, I have a super awesome perk for new customers to Firmoo. You can get 50% off your first pair of glasses HERE! So, if you’re in the market for new glasses, check out Firmoo!

Free (delicious) food

My husband’s office has had several meetings during meal hours this week that include food paid for by his company and there’s been lots of leftovers, so he’s been able to bring some of it home. I haven’t had to cook dinner two different evenings because of all the delicious food he brought home. Big time score!


Reading birth stories

I feel like I’ve finally been able to embrace my pregnancy, so I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about how I hope my next labor and delivery will go. I didn’t have the best experience with Hunter, so I’m really hoping and praying it can be different this time around. A huge part of it will be, God willing, that I don’t get preeclampsia or have any other complications. Of course I only have so much control over the whole situation and ultimately my biggest desire is to have a healthy baby no matter what happens. That being said, I would still really love to be able to have more of an enjoyable experience this next time around. Because of all of that, I’ve been really into reading birth stories on various blogs this week. There is just something so beautiful about childbirth!

Arctic Zero Chunky Pints

I was so excited to be able to try out Arctic Zero’s newest product and flavors – their chunky pints!


The chunky pints have fun little chunks of goodness throughout their frozen desserts and bring them to a whole new level of yumminess. The new chunky pints come in five different flavors – Cool Mint Chip, Cookie Dough Chip, Key Lime Pie, Buttery Pecan, and A Lil’ Bit Chippy. I’ve tried all flavors but the Buttery Pecan so far, and each of them are truly tasty. I would say Cool Mint Chip and Cookie Dough Chip are in the running for my favorite so far. Of course this isn’t “real” ice cream, but it’s a nice frozen dessert when you want something on the lighter side. I’ve been finding them to be super refreshing on the hot afternoons we’ve been having lately!

This goofy kid…


He just makes me smile all the time. The other day I was making lunch in the kitchen, and I came into the living room to see him putting on my shoes and trying to walk around in them. I’m pretty sure it’s his life mission to wear mom’s shoes.

Renewed energy

Like I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I feel like I’m finally about over that first trimester hump. I’ve noticed a big increase in my energy levels this week, and my food aversions are slowly but surely diminishing. Yay! It feels SO good to have my usual energy levels back again (for the most part). I just hope it continues!

New Fabletics attire

There was a little mix-up in my Fabletics order last month, so I just barely got my outfit from the March collection this week.. From the looks of it, I’m already in love. The Oula Tank and Rio Run Capri are already two of my favorite Fabletics pieces, but the print on the capris have totally won me over. I’m planning to rock my new attire this morning while teaching my early BodyPump class. New workout clothes always makes those early mornings a little more bearable. Winking smile


And that about wraps it up! I have some returns to make this morning and a couple little errands to make to grab a few things for Hunter’s birthday party on Sunday. Gahhh, how is he going to be TWO?!?!

Hope you have a rockin’ weekend! See ya Monday!
