Friday Faves!

Friday, June 1, 2018

Happy June 1st!  I cannot believe it's already June and my first week of summer vacation is complete.  It's been great minus all of the rain...yuck!

Today I'm sharing a few of my FAVORITES with you!  I feel like it's been so long since I've done a Friday Favorites post, so let's get started!

 If you read my Royal Wedding post yesterday, you might notice my slight obsession with Meghan Markle #noshame  I really didn't know anything about her before the wedding, but after all of my internet research, I've realized she's such a down to earth person!  This article  that she collaborated on about living well is really interesting!  And another favorite is that outfit she has on above!  I'm thinking about doing an entire post next week dedicated to Meghan Markle's style, so you can either skip that one or be as excited as me about it haha!!

 One of my favorite things is laying on top of our covers with Dustin and watching tv together.

 One of my friends at school is a certified yoga teacher, so she's decided to teach a yoga class for teachers every Tuesday morning at school.  We had our first class this week and I loved it!  It really was my first workout since early April, and it just showed me how ready I am to get back into shape.  Plus, I love all of the people I work with so it'll be great to see them once a week over the summer.

Tuesday Dustin and I went shopping in Huntsville, and the story behind this McDonald's coffee is crazy.  I shared about it on my stories under Every Day Life :)

 The reason why I'm writing this blog Friday morning is because last night I hung out with one of my oldest friends, Kristi!  She and I became friends in the 3rd grade when she moved to my town, and we've been friends ever since!  We enjoyed a night of shopping (both getting lipstick because it's our favorite) and eating out!

shorts (50% off right now!)
I haven't been comfortable wearing shorts during the summer since 2 summers ago.  While I'm working on losing all of this weight gained from fertility meds, I decided to just suck it up and buy a new pair of shorts to wear this summer.  I knew I didn't want to invest in an expensive pair since I'm hoping to not wear that size for long, so I found a cheap pair that I actually really like!!  They are half off right now making them even cheaper, and my friend Kristi bought a pair last night because she liked how they looked on me!  

It's so crazy who inspired me to just buy a pair of shorts for this summer, but Mallory Ervin--who just had a baby and has a lot of weight to lose--bought herself shorts about 5 sizes bigger than her pre-baby body and is rocking them this summer!  Would anyone be interested in a post on bodily changes during fertility meds?  It's not what I expected going into it ha!

This song is on the long side, BUT if you're going through any hard season right now, I beg you to listen to this song!  It's so helpful to remind you what your perspective should be, and I love both Shane and Shane and John Piper.


  1. I feel like all of the transitions in your body are just hard throughout fertility treatments. I remember feeling that way after the meds and then after having her...the "in between" phase is just annoying bc you don't want to spend a lot but you also need clothes that fit in the meantime. I'm glad youre getting to do the yoga class! Sounds like a really great way to ease back into working out again!

  2. I saw your story about the coffee - that is equal parts funny as it is sad LOL!! Loving all the royal wedding stuff so keep it coming! xo, Biana BlovedBoston

  3. You’re so precious! Just love your real ness and positivity vibes! Love you girlfriend, have a great weekend!

  4. Glad yoga class went well for you! And I'm totally looking forward to your Meghan Markle style post! :D

  5. If i ever hear that song it makes me almost feel sick- because ben listened to it all the time when we had our miscarriage and it brings back those memories of grief.. but I love that you're enjoying it too during the same season. I just bought a pair of shorts a size up for my postpartum body too... I feel like shorts are always the last thing to fit even when your jeans do. It's too stinking hot in the south to not have a pair of shorts that fit you and feel comfortable. I think you should for sure do a post on fertility meds and your body, you'll love having those raw thoughts to look back on!

  6. Thanks for being an open book and continuing to share the good and the "bad". I would love to hear more about the bodily changes that come along with injectables as snowflake adoption may be on the horizon for my husband and I. Suits is a fav and I am so looking forward to the MM style post!

  7. I have become sort of obsessed with Meagan Markle since the royal wedding as well! She does seem like such a great person!


  8. I share your enthusiasm for all things Royal Wedding and Meghan! Have a great weekend friend :)

  9. I"m still trying to figure out what to think about Meghan Markle and her style. I'll be interested to see how her style continues to evolve though... and if she'll be like Kate and mix in some "affordable" brands with the bespoke stuff. SO... I'll definitely be following along with you. If it's been as hot there as it has been here (too early for such heat) I'm with you on stocking up on shorts and just trying to stay cool!

  10. I think sharing all of your journey will definitely touch someone lady! I have been impressed with Mallory sharing the "real" life stuff. She gained alot of weight and I would bet it will be a bit before she gets back to her old self so being authentic about it is definitely huge. Hope you are having a super weekend.

  11. So glad the yoga class went well for you!!

  12. I'm so glad that you watch Mallory too! She's been so inspiring throughout her entire pregnancy & I'm so glad she's focused on enjoying her baby and not worrying too much about losing the baby weight because I hope that I'm the same way. I would love to read a post about the effects of the fertility meds & I think it would be a super helpful resource for hopeful mom's to be to read in the future :)

    xoxo, SS

  14. I love all things royal and the royal wedding!
