Friday Five

Fridays are always my favorite. Being home with Caroline the days tend to blur together. However, Friday signifies two jam packed days spent enjoying time as a family of three. Nothing makes me more happy than seeing Joe play and love on Caroline.  Since it is Friday, I am sharing five favorite things from this week. 

{One} Newborn Essentials. Feel like this blog is becoming baby centered? Well honestly, it is! This little space is a refection of my life and right now it is all about my sweet baby girl. We have officially passed the newborn phase and I thought it was time to share the essentials that got us through these past three months. I'm looking forward to sharing them with you next week!  This white noise app is one of the most used on my phone. 

{Two} Currently Munching. This Cranberry Walnut Chicken Salad is delicious. It is the perfect summer, on the go snack. I make them in single serving portions and can grab one when I have a free moment. I have made a few tweaks which I'll share next week. 

{Three} New Sneaks. Since returning to exercise I quickly realized that my tennis shoes have seen better days. I put way too many miles on my sneakers with countless miles training for a marathon as well as several half marathons. I don't plan on running any marathons anytime soon so I wanted to get a fun but still functional pair of shoes. I have always loved Nikes but they were not great for my running needs. So I took a chance and gave Nike Free Run Distance a try. They are so much lighter than typical running shoes but still have some padding so you don't feel like your running barefoot. 

{Four} Shopping List. I have been spending way too much time trying to figutre out what to do with this post baby body on the beach. I have a one piece but it doesn't fit quite right. I think a tankini may be a good fit but don't want to look like an middle aged mom. Of course all the swimsuits I love are $100+ dollars and we are on a one person salary. Does anyone have a favorite swim suit to share? 

{Five} Produce Delivery. I am so excited to start getting fresh fruits and veggies delivered to our door. The produce box is a local company that works with vendors to deliver seasonal produce to you each month. Having fresh produce on hand will force me to get creative with our meal plans!
