Friday Favorites

FRIDAY friends! Oh thank the good Lord that it's finally here. I'm not sure about you all and your work week but it's been a super crazy busy no sleep one..over here. Lucky me I'm sure and while I'm trying not to complain because I truly love my job(s), it can get overwhelming! Alright but moving on to a happier note- and that it's Fri-YAY- I'll be sharing a few favorites with you!

This week there are a lot of fun things going on and I can't wait to dive a bit deeper in the next few weeks with everyone. So, the real reason why you are here is because of that so let's dive on in!

1. Dairy Free- A few of you have noticed on my Insta Stories and Snapchat that I've been going dairy free for the past week. Why the change? I'm still nursing Landon and his ped. suggested I go back on being dairy free again due to his poor eczema issues. My honest opinion- it was hard as heck but the more I stuck with meal prepping and knowing it was *fingers crossed* helping my little guy- it's not awful. In fact, my new found love of dairy free ice cream from Steve's has been restored because who doesn't love Cookie Butter ice cream (ish) ?! Send recipes my way friends!

2. Pumpkin Patches- This weekend my SIL is in town (woo!) so we are heading to take the little ones to the pumpkin patch and pick out a few pumpkins to carve this fall! I absolutely hate taking out the 'guts' ( I make Zach do it every time ) but I love creating something fun to put on our front stoop! This year is even more special now that we have Landon! Our boys first fall!

3. Black Leggings- Now that I'm finally back to my post weight after having my little guy 5 months ago, I'm on the hunt for the perfect black leggings to live in this fall. Any recommendations on your favorites? I love something comfortable, medium thickness and high waist! I can always count on you all to help me out!

Share with me some things you are loving/doing this weekend!

  1. We just bought cookie butter for the first time this week. YUM!! And as for leggings, lululemon wunder under I think is that they are called?! They will know when you ask which ones you can wear as leggings. They are technically workout pants but they double as leggings for me because they don’t really look like work out gear! Lululemon is where it’s at!

  2. Dont we do anything for our little? Even when we are forced to eat diary free delicious cookie butter ice-cream!😂 I lived in a pair of black leggings for like a little over a year till I finally managed to squeeze myself into my old pair of jeans! I bought my at the H&M.

  3. Um what. Dairy free cookie butter ice cream...where can I get this? I'm also nursing and when I eat dairy my baby gets SO fussy and breaks out and has really bad tummy issues. I stopped eating dairy and he was totally fine. Tried eating dairy again and bam, all over again. :/ have you tried Ben & jerrys dairy free brownie ice cream? That's the one I've been getting! It's pretty decent!


  4. I love pumpkin patches. My youngest daughter's first birthday party is next Saturday and we are doing a pumpkin patch themed birthday party! I'm super excited if you can't tell.

  5. I hope you have fun at the pumpkin patch! I can't wait for my nieces and nephew to move back to my area (soon!!) so we can do things like that.

    Oh, I could really use some good black leggings too!


  6. Duuude! I LOVE black leggings lol! When Fall hits I just live in sweaters and black leggings, hehe!

  7. Pumpkin patches are my favorite activity in October! It makes me happy to see my kids there!

  8. Wait. That Cookie Butter sounds AMAZING. Need to try!

  9. My fave black leggings are by Girlfriend Collective - they are ethically made with recycled water bottles!! And they are really comfy and suck in all the jiggly bits (which I totally need sucked in!!).



  10. Yes to all of these things girl! This is why we're friends! Bring on ALL the black leggings, lol!

  11. I've been wanting to try dairy free ice cream but have been hesitant... but after reading this I'll definitely give it a shot!

  12. I need to go back to being dairy free and semi keto. Girl, five months and you're back to being skinny minnie? #jelly It took me more like 18 months - uncool! So I really lucked up a couple years ago and of all places Walmart had a fabulous set of black and grey leggings - good thickness and high waisted. Of course that was a one time deal and I am not sure if they have them now. HAPPY weekend! xo

  13. I had to do the exact same thing when I was nursing my son! I was pinning dairy-free recipes like crazy back then. https://www.pinterest.com/lovejoleen/dairy-free-diet/?etslf=3771&eq=dairy
