Hey friends! How are you today? Ready for the holiday weekend? I was actually off yesterday and today, so I feel like I am already a bit settled into the weekend.
Let’s get to some favorites, shall we?
My biggest favorite of the week has been a little extra downtime. I took yesterday off for some appointments and errands and took today off to hang out with my babies since their school is closed today. It was so nice to be able to get some stuff done yesterday so that I can focus on having fun with my littles today. We are going to color some Easter eggs and have some friends coming for dinner this evening.
Speaking of the babies, they got some new duds this week and are looking pretty adorable. They needed some new Spring gear, so I was scoping out the selection on ThredUp (<-referral link, get yourself $10 off your first order). They both ended up helping me select some items for themselves. Below is a sampling of the little misses selections, she described the dress as “very oh la la.” She looks adorable in it.
The babes and I have also been loving Pig the Pug this week. We picked things up at the kid’s last Scholastic book fair and has been a favorite ever since. It is just so cute and fun.
I have also been all about the grocery store sushi recently. I haven’t found one that is as great as actually going to sushi, but have still found some pretty tasty ones. I have been grabbing them occasionally for a quick lunch and it has been helping to keep my sushi cravings at bay.
I have also been loving these Prince of Peace Ginger Chews. I received a bag of these in a Love with Food Box not too long ago and fell in love with them. I love that spicy sweet ginger flavor, and paired with a little lemon flavor…amazing! I liked them so much, that I reached out to the company to learn a little more about them. They were kind enough to send me some of their other flavors to try (currently really digging on the mango), as well as a bag of their ginger lemon chews to share. I would love to share this favorite with you, just comment below for a chance to win. For a bonus chance, follow me on Instagram and check out Prince of Peace’s feed, just leave a second comment letting me know you followed below. Giveaway will be open through Monday, and I will be announcing a winner in Wednesday’s (April 4th) post.
On the workout front, there has been a variety this week. After really enjoying the 5k Sunday, I went for a short run Tuesday evening. It was okay, but definitely less fun than running with a friend. Also, my shins were not loving it. I also hit up an Orangetheory class this week, which featured a mile row! Other than that I have been loving some at home workouts. I am using a trial of Physique 57 right now, which is streaming barre classes, and have also been enjoying some online yoga classes this week as well.
Around the internet this week, I am loving:
This quick glute workout from Confessions of a Mother Runner, I love a fast and effective workout!.
I have been all about quick vegetarian dinners recently, and this Vegetable Risotto from the Minimalist Baker looks right up my alley.
Spring has me thinking about carrot cake (one of the best cakes in my personal opinion, especially with a good cream cheese frosting). So I have been delighted to see so many healthier options popping up. These Carrot Cake Quinoa Muffins from Hungry Hobby look amazing. This Vegan Almond Flour Carrot Cake from Skinny Fitalicious also looks pretty delicious.
So friends, what are your plans for the weekend? Any special Easter or Passover traditions? We are doing an Easter egg hunt with friends and having brunch with family to celebrate.
Hope you have a great weekend!
