Friday Favorites | 8.14.15

Thanks to Katie and Heather for the link-up!

I couldn't be more ready for the weekend than I am today.  After a tough week (you can read about it here), I am in need of my sweatpants, a couch, and relaxation.

Things have definitely gotten better for me.  I can move more freely around without pain.  I attempted a 30-min run last night and while the run felt good, afterwards I was wiped and my stomach was sore.  I didn't mean to push myself too much but I needed to gauge where I was at.  Now I know.  Just a few more days of rest and I should be back in business. (Fingers crossed.)

In gearing up for the weekend, here are some of my #fridayfavorites from the week:


A friend of mine on Facebook posted this image of some scripture he read that day, and it was really exactly what I needed to read this week.  

My sleepy boy

I walked upstairs to check on Ryan, after bed, one night this week and he just looked so darn cute.  He is so full of energy it is crazy, and yet he was so so beautiful and peaceful here.

Hospital Goodies

I saw this image on Pinterest and laughed because I took home every free thing I could get my hands on when I left the hospital after delivering Ryan.  I grabbed all the mesh panties I could find, diapers, etc!  Gimme, gimme, gimme!  Did you?  Oh, and I still have that salmon pink bucket too!  I have used it by my bed with Ryan's diapers and wipes for emergency diaper changes downstairs.

Saving Money at Starbucks

I love Starbucks but my bank account doesn't.  Read this article here on Starbucks hacks that will save you some dinero.
