Well I’m a little bummed right now because somehow Spring Break is already almost over. I can’t believe it’s already Friday–this week has gone by SO fast. Why does that always happen?! Breaks always seem to zoom by at record speed and I’m always sad when it’s over. It’s been so nice to have my sweet little guy home this week, and my husband actually took some time off as well, so I’ve been a happy gal with all my crew home together. I wish the time hadn’t gone by so fast, but I’m still grateful that we got to take a little break from the normal routine. Anyway, I hope your week was full of happy things too! Today I wanted to pop in for a quick Friday Favorites post. I don’t have a ton to share, but I did want to show you guys the new rug we got in our living room and a couple other random things!
New Living Room Rug
About two months ago I ordered this rug for our bedroom and I shared it in this post. I’ve been SO happy with it–I love the color, design and it’s super soft too. Well I actually decided to get another one for our living room because the rug we had in there was getting worn out and it was time for it to be replaced. Plus the baby just started crawling (yay!) and I wanted a rug that would be more comfortable on her little knees. We just put it in the living room and I am loving it.
This rug is seriously so nice, even my husband commented on how good it looks in our living room. It has a vintage vibe and the coloring is a mix of light blue and soft gray. It’s actually pretty thick too, which is so nice for the kids to play on. We got the size 8×10 (that’s also the size that’s in our bedroom) and it’s back on sale right now so I wanted to let you guys know in case any of you might be looking for a new rug!
Remember that lemon botanical pillow I shared in this post about spring decor from Etsy last week? I told you guys that I recently got mine out for spring, so I wanted to show you how darn cute it is!
This week we celebrated the first day of spring with a visit to a huge greenhouse. They were just starting to get all their spring flowers out and it was so fun to walk around and admire all the pretty things. The kids loved it just as much as I did! And boy oh boy, I have some MAJOR spring fever now. And my desire to be a real plant lady is stronger than ever. Too bad I’m absolutely awful at keeping plants alive.
My Favorite Probiotics
Ok, this might be a little random but I wanted to share my favorite probiotics with you guys. I actually mentioned these on Instagram a while back, but I wanted to share them here too because they’ve truly made a big difference in how I feel. So to give you a bit of back story, several months ago I was feeling super run down and really tired. I obviously wasn’t getting much sleep with a new baby, but it was more than just being sleep deprived. My whole body just felt like it was running on fumes. Anyway, I started drinking those GoodBelly shots, which are packed full of probiotics, and I noticed that whenever I had one of those I would feel much more energized. Once I made that connection between my energy levels and probiotics I started doing some research and found that probiotics are insanely important to our health–much more so than I ever realized. That’s when I decided to start taking probiotics every single day, just to see what would happen with my energy levels. I bought these Dr. Formulated Probiotics and told myself I’d try them for one month to see how I felt. (I get them at my grocery store and the ones I take have to be refrigerated, but there’s also a non-refrigerated version here)
Within just a few days of taking these I started feeling sooooooo much better. I had so much more energy, I felt more clear headed, and just way better overall. I’m not going to say I don’t still feel tired at times (because life with three kids makes you tired!) but I no longer feel that heavy fatigue that I felt before. The only thing I changed was taking these–I take two on an empty stomach every morning right before my coffee. I’ve been taking them for about 4 months now and I absolutely LOVE them. They’re a bit pricey at about $35 a bottle (which lasts me a month) but I think it’s totally worth the investment. I just wanted to share this today because if you aren’t taking probiotics I highly recommend looking into it. I’m obviously not a doctor, but these have made a big difference in how I feel. These are my favorite, but there are a zillion options out there. Just do your research first!
Favorite Maxi Dress
This week I was doing a little spring cleaning in my closet when I found my favorite maxi dress. I’ve shared this with you guys before, but gosh I love this dress so much. I was practically living in this thing last summer and I am so excited to start wearing it again now that the weather is getting warmer. I just ordered another one in this gorgeous rose color for Easter. I also love this light blue option too!
Well that’s it for me today my friends. I’m off to enjoy the last of Spring Break with my favorite people. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. I’ll see you back here sooooooooooon!! xoxo
