Friday Favorites 1

Happy Friday!  This week was a doozy.  I have a 3 year old who is sweet and loving one minute and a holy terror the next.  Threenagers, am I right? Our 7 month old is deep in the throws of teething/growing/never wanting to be away from mom.  I am wiped! Even though I’m a stay at home mom, the weekend always brings a nice change of pace.

I read a fair number of blogs and while I love them as a resource for workouts and recipes, I really love getting to know the people behind the blog.  I also love seeing what other people are into and getting new recommendations for things to try.

Here are a few things I'm loving lately!

  1. SimpleModern Waterbottle                                                                                                    I drink a TON of water, but lately have found myself getting a little lazy about my water consumption. My sister-in-law gave me this water bottle for Christmas and it is perfect.  I have the 64oz version (yes, a half gallon!). My goal is to drink a gallon of water a day and I love that I don’t have to stop all the time to refill. It’s insulated, so it keeps the water really cold and this particular one is much cheaper than similar versions.  It gets heavy when its full, but I discovered that our silicone reusuable straws are the perfect size for it. I drop one in there, put it on the kitchen counter, and can grab a sip anytime I walk past.

  2. Bullet Proof Coffee                                                                                                                  Ok, I’m very late to the game on this one, but I have been loving this lately. It’s been on my radar for several years, but I hadn’t gotten around to actually making any.  A friend made us some at the beginning of the year and my husband and I have been obsessed.

  3. FitnessBlender.com Workouts                                                                                                     I really enjoy working out. It’s a stress reliever, and I’m a much happier person when I get it in a few days a week. At my current stage of life, a gym membership isn’t a feasible option.  I’ve tried tons of at home workouts and these are my favorite by far! It’s a husband and wife team who have put together hundreds of workouts FOR FREE. They are fabulous!

  4. SODelicious cashew milk ice cream                                                                                        I’m nursing my 7 month old and we discovered a few months ago he doesn’t do well with dairy.  I’m hoping he’ll grow out of it (usually around a year, I hear), but I’m staying dairy free. I’ve tried a handful of dairy free ice creams and some of them are a hard pass.  This cashew milk one is the closest to the real deal for me - plenty creamy and no weird after taste.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  We have a quick trip to the beach to visit some friends and I am excited!
