Friday Favorites

Today I am linking up with Erika, Narci, and Andrea to share some of my current favorites, so here goes!

Tally's Trainer

We had a trainer come to our house last weekend to work with Tally on some household behaviors and walking with our stroller(s) πŸ˜‚, and in 2 hours she helped us accomplish SO much! We still have some work to do on training other people about what to do and not to do when they walk in our house, but we have seen major improvements in our family this week with how he greets us when we get home, giving us space when we're on the floor playing with the kids, staying on his bed while we eat dinner, and walking next to me on our walks instead of leading the stroller. 

The funniest thing is that Matt and I were finding so many parallels to raising kids when she was teaching us how to respond with Tally, and we also laughed at some of her seemingly common-sense solutions to the issues we were having. We wish we had her over sooner than just last weekend!

If you are in the Atlanta area (she actually lives in Madison, GA), and are looking for a great dog trainer, I highly recommend Susan! Just shoot me an email and I'll be happy to share her info with you. :)

Milkful Bars
(found here)
If you follow us on Instagram, you have seen me post a lot about these lately. These lactation bars are so tasty and really do work! Right around 3 months (Emily's current age) is where I started having trouble with my milk supply with Natalie. Now having three kids, there are days when I realize I haven't had as much water to drink or eaten as much as I should in between feeds to make sure my milk is fatty and I'm producing enough of it. But these bars are so easy to grab and eat in the car or in between feeds when I know I won't have time to make a snack.

The other morning, after feeding Emily first thing when I woke her up, I pumped an additional 7 ounces! So if you're a busy nursing mom like me or are having trouble with inconsistency in your supply, you should definitely gives these bars a try!

Bento Lunch Box 
(found here)
Ryan has been in preschool for a month now, and these little lunch box organizers have been the BEST! Everything that he eats for his lunch goes in this little container and then sits on top of two of these flat ice packs in his lunch box. There are plenty of bento box options on Amazon, but these are only $13.95 for FOUR! They are a thicker plastic and have held up well in the dishwasher. I usually pack his lunches for the week and then have an extra one left over for Natalie and I to use if we're picnicking for lunch.

Ryan's first day of school lunch :)

Most comfy pajamas

I realize it will be getting cooler soon, but I bought these pajamas from Target 2 months ago, and Matt recently told me I've gotten a good return on my investment on them. πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚ And by investment, we're talking under $20. They are SO soft and come in four different color options as well.

Old Navy Athleisure
Any given week, I would say I'm rocking the athleisure look 5/7 days. And on most of those days, I at least get some sort of a workout in to justify it. πŸ˜œ Here are few of my current favorite purchases:
Mid-rise compression leggings 
(found here)
I love Old Navy's compression leggings. They fit tight but are comfortable. Especially great for my current post-baby state where things aren't quite back to where I'd like for them to be. πŸ˜œ

Go-Dry Strappy-Back Tank 
(found here)
This top comes in several colors and fits comfortably. It does seem to run a little bigger than their other workout tops though so I would size-down, but I like how it's looser about the mid-section and also like the look of the back.

High rise compression leggings 
(found here)
These are fun, comfortable, and that compression style that I currently love.

And all of Old Navy online is 30% off today!

Maple Holistics Shampoo
(found here)

I was recently sent a bottle of this Tea Tree Oil shampoo to try. I used it on myself and Ryan and Natalie, and even Ryan commented on how good it smelled when I was washing his hair. You can read more about the product here. They also have several other products for you to check out as well with free shipping on orders over $25. And you can click here for a free sample!

Light-up Mirror for Car
(found here)
We bought this mirror when Ryan was a baby, used it with Natalie, and just last week, switched it over to Emily's side. It plays soft music and lights up like little stars timed to the music. And it obviously serves as a regular mirror when it's off so you can see your rear-facing kiddos while your driving. We have loved this little mirror!

Tomorrow we head to the beach with my family for a week! It will be our first vacation as a family of 5 and we can't wait!

Happy Friday, y'all!



  1. I've never considered Old Navy for athletic wear but you have some great finds!

  2. I love Old Navy's workout gear. It's comfy, and they do great deals and sales all the time.
