HELLO Friday, I've been waiting for you! This week has been a little crazy. The boss lady has been on a feeding frenzy (we think it's the six week growth spurt), and I'm pretty exhausted. But I love Friday posts so I'm linking up with Christina, April, Natasha, Darci, AND Caitlyn, Stephanie, and Laura today:
ONE: My doctor said I can start working out again this week! Even though most days I'm too tired to do anything but take care of Violet and make sure our house doesn't turn into a complete disaster I really missed yoga. It has always been a huge stress reliever for me and I always feel better after I spend some time on the mat. That brings me to my Can't Live Without It item of the week: my Manduka yoga mats! I invested in two quality yoga mats last year and I use them all the time. I have the Manduka Pro Mat which is thick mat I use for at home workouts and the PROlite mat for gym workouts. I've had a few cheapo mats in the past and a quality mat makes a huge difference in your practice. Both mats are really well made and have a lifetime guarantees which (IMHO) totally justifies a higher price-tag.
TWO: I plan on making these no-bake peanut butter oatmeal energy bites and oatmeal raisin energy bites sometime soon. They look like an easy and healthy snack that'll keep me full (breastfeeding burns a ton of calories!).
THREE: I love love Jane the Virgin. Does anyone else watch this show?! I'm totally addicted to it. I love the characters -- I'm #teamraphael not #teammichael so I can't wait to see what happens next! Another favorite show in our house is The Last Man on Earth we just watched a couple of episodes on hulu and it's pretty funny :)FOUR: I received a NuRoo Nursing Scarf to try out and it's fantastic! The scarf can be worn a number of different ways - wrapped or draped, front and back, over the shoulder or around your neck. It's made out of lightweight, breathable fabric and comes in two colors navy and gray/ivory stripe (of course I went with the stripe option!). And I love that when I'm done breastfeeding it can still be used as an infinity scarf.
FIVE: I bought this maxi dress from Nordstrom and it's a keeper. The material is lightweight so it won't be to heavy to wear this summer. And the cut is really flattering -- I ordered a size small. I am tempted to get another one in a different color since they are currently 25% off.
Have a great weekend!
