For anyone else who lives in the Midwest, I’m sure you are joining me in cheering about the fact that for a week straight we have had weather that has been Spring like and consistent. Yes, I realize the joys of Spring means that it is unpredictable, but this year has just been crazy. 30 degrees one day, 60 the next… after a week of consistent weather I feel like jumping up and down and yelling that Spring is finally here!
Besides the nice weather, there have been a lot of things that have topped my favorites list lately. After weeks of fighting off colds, sinus infections and strep for the Little Man we have spent a lot of time focusing on favorite things this week instead of not so favorite things.
Friday Favorites – Celebrating That Spring Is Finally Here
The BEST part about Spring is the fact that fruit actually tastes like fruit again. You all know what I mean. Instead of plastic, flavorless wannabe fruit we have sweet and delicious fruit that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to buy. Not only have I been stocking up as quickly as I can, we’ve been making lots of fresh fruit smoothies. Costco has a lot on sale and I definitely stocked up this afternoon.
My yoga balls are hands down one of the best products I have purchased for both of my pregnancies. I’m starting to switch between chair and yoga ball more often and it was the perfect time to get my new one in the mail. Then again, Little Man thinks it’s a brand new toy. For now we are sharing.
The Krazy Coupon Lady
I am all about finding a good deal on things and The Krazy Coupon Lady has opened up a whole new level of daily deals. I made the mistake of subscribing to her emails and have come across some pretty good deals. They aren’t always what I need at the time but you never know when a good deal might pop up at the right time.
A few weeks ago Emily over at My Healthyish Life posted one of my new favorite blog posts… Redefining Success As a Blogger. My blog has never had one specific direction. It is a little bit of everything in my life and I’ve always been okay with that. So many articles I read say that you have to pick one topic… that isn’t me. Emily broke it down and I LOVED her honesty on blogging and defining success.
The End of The Pre-NBA Draft Period
Why not sneak a little bit of college basketball into one more post before next Fall. The final draft decisions were due this week and while I may or may not have been on edge with our two favorite teams (Valpo & Indiana) I was pretty happy with the outcome. Two returning and one heading off to the draft. Not bad! This whole process has been interesting and fun to watch.
