I’m up before E this morning and thought I’d throw a quick post together. Here’s round 4 of What I’m Loving Lately!
- My “garden”
I’m not much of a green thumb, but I’ve always been a wannabe. So when my friend Kara offered up a couple tomato plants from her garden, I accepted gratefully! With all the rain and sun that Indiana has had lately, I haven’t had to do much in order for it to grow. But grow it certainly has! And I’m just recently the proud mama of my very first baby tomato!!
I’ve got some other beauts surrounding my house too!
- Young Living Essential Oils
My friend Lori sells Young Living oils and I have always been intrigued by them. So many uses for so many things! So last week I finally bit the bullet and purchased the starter pack which comes with 10 different oils and a home diffuser. I’ve also been added to a Facebook group to give me tips and “recipes” and thank goodness because I’m a teensy overwhelmed with how to get started. But from what I understand, the options are endless. Can’t wait to get started!
Anyone with helpful hints/ recipes, send them my way please!!
- Toddler Play Dates
I can’t stop gushing about how lucky we are to have found such amazing families since moving to our new home. Emery and I have been keeping so busy with our friends this summer, it’s been awesome! Check out some of our latest outings,,
- MY girls
Before our most recent Florida vacation, I went out with my girls Lauren, Abby & Angela to celebrate my friend Angela’s upcoming birthday. After dinner at the Sangrita Saloon in Broad Ripple, we walked over to The Cake Bake Shop for dessert and champs. The place is an absolute dream. Like dining in Paris. Go if you have the chance! This night was yet another reminder of some of the amazing women I have in my life and the good times we ALWAYS have.
- Wall decor
If you’ve been to my house, you know that I’m seriously lacking in the wall decor department. I just don’t like putting holes in my wall when I still have so much more furniture to fill my space! So when something actually does make it’s way up, I’m very proud of it. I’ve been trying to hang more lately, but my latest is def my proudest. I bought these dessert plates from Dayspring a month or so ago and just recently made my way to Hobby Lobby to get the proper hanging supplies. They’re finally up, and I’m in love. Not only with the colors,, that quote <3
- Getting B Back
Though I’ve got a ways to go, I’ve been making a more conscious effort to be active lately. My body is a constant reminder of my laziness as of late. I’ve been wearing my vivofit2 daily, making sure to get my goal steps for the day. I’ve also been going on walks, usually with stroller and pup in tow (that’s a workout in itself). And last night, I joined in my first BrewMile at Union Brewing Co! I called up my friend Lauren who accepted my one mile challenge and after registration and a quick catch-up with Lindsey, we were off! 10 sweaty minutes later, E, Lauren and I crossed the finish line with huge smiles. Look!
Thanks Athletic Annex! Can’t wait for the next one!
- Dance moves
Check out this video of Emery and Fiona dancing last night at the outdoor concert at Clay Terrace. I’ve never seen him cut a rug like this!! & the “more” he was asking for was his watermelon snow cone 🙂 Ah, summer.
- Upcoming visitors
This weekend, my bestie Cora and her daughter Camille are coming down to Indy for a visit! To say we are excited is an understatement. Can’t wait to get these two boogers together again!
Nothing beats warm weather and sunny fun with my best boy. These are the best times. & I’m treasuring them all.
