Friday Faves

 Hi friends! Happy Friday! Any fun plans for the long weekend? We are headed to a concert and enjoying some time grilling with frieda. The Pilot is off today, so I’m excited to see what adventures we get into. :)

Thank you so much for all of your sweet wishes about the fun news yesterday. (I’m sorry the post wasn’t showing up properly!! It’s on the Family page and the 2nd Trimester tab.) We appreciate your kind words so much, and I read all of your Facebook, Instagram and blog comments with the biggest smile on my face. I can’t wait to see those two little sisters together. <3 

In the usual Friday fashion, here are some fun reads and finds from the week. I always love to hear what you’re enjoying, too, so please shout it out in the comments section!

Getting Summer Shape Up stuff together! Get ready for it— I think it will be a good one. :) 4 weeks of free fitness plans and meal ideas coming your way June 15th!

Homemade raw pitaya cheesecake

Time for an afternoon sweet treat…. I’m on a pitaya kick and I can’t.be.stopped. It’s been a way to switch it up from acai (though don’t get me wrong, I still love my acai). Pitaya is lower in sugar and higher in antioxidants. Oh, and it’s this gorgeous bright pink color, so that’s always fun. […]

Granola instantly came to mind, as it’s one of my […]

Hi friends! Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? We are enjoying some beautiful and much-needed rain.
