Friday Favorites!

First off, this Friday is a big one. Why? Because it's the last one as my little family of three! Ahhh! Next Thursday I'll be going in for my scheduled c-section in the morning ( if not earlier?! ) and we'll finally get to meet our sweet boy. Am I anxious, nervous, excited or freaked out? Can I be honest and just say all the above! The fact that we haven't had many ultra sounds with this little one just makes Zach and I even more on pins and needles to see what our little man looks like! Will he have blonde hair like my husband did as a child or dark eyes like myself? All I know is, it's Friday and I'm soaking everything up this last weekend.

But let's dive into some Friday Favorites shall we? If you're new to the blog, today is where I share some of my favorite finds in hopes of inspiring, encouraging or motivating you to enjoy them too! As always, I love finding out what you're loving too so please please please feel free to share in the comments section below.
1. Real Food - Some of you may have seen on my Snapchat and Insta Stories that I was hit with a huge stomach bug / part of pregnancy scenario last Wednesday. Can I just say that was probably one of the worst weeks/weekends ever for this girl? I'm still building myself back up and was able to consume a small spinach and roasted chicken salad the other day. It may not be like much but when you haven't really been able to eat for 4 days, it was incredible.

2. My Girl - I've been such an emotional wreck the last few days. From being sick to carrying this little boy I haven't had much time with my sweet toddler. She's been super clingy to Daddy knowing that I needed time to heal and get my body back together yet I miss our one on one time. The other night I was sitting on the couch and she came over, laid her head on my belly and said " I just love you Mommy". Well gosh darn it I almost bawled. Those that have transitioned from one to two kids know the feeling I'm sure of knowing that a lot may change, especially having these quiet moments just her and I but I'm going to for sure be making a priority to spend some quality time with her while on Maternity leave.

3. RX Bars- I've posted about how much I adore these bars a few months back but and recently they came back into my life while I was shopping the other day. Why on earth did I ever let these leave?! They are so delicious and I know I'm eating healthy since all the ingredients are right on the front of the package. Blueberry has been my go to but I'm really on the hunt for the peanut butter and the mint flavors! Have you tried them?

4. Warm Weather - Is it just me or once the weather turns warm everyone just gets super giddy and excited? Granted, I may be waddling around a bit outside with this stomach but I love coming home, sitting on our front porch and feeling the warmth of the sun and listening to the birds chirp. It just makes me so happy and I find myself saying "It's so GORGEOUS outside" every other day.

What are your enjoying this week?
