Friday Five

Fridays are a favorite these days as it signals the weekend where our little family can hang out all day long! This weekend is extra special due to my parents being in town for Mother's Day. Today, I am glad to get back into a routine and share a few things I have been loving. As always, I hope you enjoy and would love to hear about a few of your favorite things.

{One} Currently Craving. We recently enjoyed dinner out with a group of friends and I indulged in a wine flight. The featured white wine was delicious and I am on a mission to find it in stores. Vino Verde is a white wine from Portugal which is sweet, crisp and effervescent.

{Two} Summer Fashion. I have found my newest wardrobe staple thanks to the Belk brand Crown & Ivy. Their line has flattering pieces in colorful prints for affordable prices. The best thing about Belk is that their is always a sale. I snagged a few cute pieces in my "new mom" size and they are so comfy for summer.

{Three} Meal Prep. Since Caroline was born freezer meals or fast food were a staple for dinner. I enjoy our freezer meals but was starting to miss fresh vegetables! Late one night, I signed up for a subscription to Hello Fresh. Their meal delivery service has changed our dinners these past two weeks. All the ingredients for three dinners are delivered to our door n Monday afternoon. The recipes are simple and quick which makes preparing dinner less of a chore at 8pm. 

{Four} Amazon Prime Obsession. Looking for the perfect gift for a new parent? Give them a year's subscription to Amazon Prime. Our subscription has paid for itself these past three months. I love that I can order almost anything with free two day shipping if I am not feeling a trip to Babies R Us or Walmart. Our area has free two hour shipping for select products including food, beer and wine! I may have ordered Ice Cream and cookies after a long day at home. 100% worth it. We also use the subscription service for diapers and wipes. 

{Five} Mother's Day. I am beyond blessed to be celebrating Mother's Day this year for the first time with my amazing baby girl. We were blessed with a healthy and happy baby. Unfortunately, that is not the case for every family. I want to wish a happy Mother's Day to every woman that is a figure of support and love in someone's life.
