Friday Favorites | 4.10.15

especially trying to get over our Easter candy ‘hangover’. My phone also got soaked by a leaking sippy cup and died. Thank goodness for phone insurance right?!?

Here are a few of my favorite things from this week:

Stitch Fix #7

OMG you guys! Last weekend I recieved my 7th fix and it was the best yet! I was so excited with all the items that I recieved. Just proof that following my simple tips for making Stitch Fix work for you really works! Here is a sneak peek at the beautiful patterns but stay tuned for my review post on Monday!

Easter candy detox

After a weekend of glutony and overindulgance on candy, good food and wine, I was feeling sluggish and blah. I knew it was time to get back to clean eating, just in time for our upcoming vacation. I made up some zoodles using my Veggetti Sprializer (which I still love), sauteed up some ground turkey with basil and garlic and added some of my favorite clean marinara sauce (with added veggies). It was SOOOO good. Obviously not your standard spaghetti bolognese but still pretty good for healthy food. I’m already feeling better and have a lot more energy just because I’m eating better and drinking ridiculous amounts of water.

Netflix faves

It’s no secret that I’m addicted to Netflix. My husband and I spend many a Friday and Saturday night binge watching shows since we have kids and don’t get out much. Earlier this week, I wrote a post about 5 shows to binge watch on Netflix with your spouse, mainly because I have a lot of friend that have a hard time finding shows to watch together. These shows are newer and little less popular than the binge watch staples, like ‘Breaking Bad’, ‘Walking Dead’ and ‘Scandal’. Right now, we’re a few episodes into the series ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ on Netflix. I’ll let you know what I think once we finish.

Potty training – slow going (no pun intended)

We’ve been slowly working on potty training our youngest, who is 2 years and 4 months. With our oldest, Lucy, we tried to push her into it and it just didn’t work. We finally decided to wait until she started talking about it and was excited about wearing ‘big kid’ underwear. We’ve taken that approach with Olivia and she’s gradually getting more into it. We tried putting her into underwear for an entire weekend about a month ago and it wasn’t fun for anyone.

Over the last week, she has gotten better about telling us when she needs to go but still isn’t consistant. We’ll keep on keepin’ on until she gets to a point where she ‘gets’ it and we can switch to underwear. While I’m super excited about the thought of no more diapers, it’s a little sad to see my last baby growing up so fast.

Rocksbox

I signed up with Rocksbox (with a free month from Kerri over at Haven Way – thanks girl) and my first box is in the mail. Rocksbox is like a cross between Stitch Fix and Rent the Runway, but for jewelry. You sign up to be a Shine Insider for $19/month and fill out a brief style survey and start adding items to your wishlist. You will get 3 items of jewelry sent to your within 1-2 weeks. Wear the pieces as often as you like until you’re reday to send it back for 3 new pieces. Keep your box for as long or as little as you want. If you fall in love with one or more of the pieces, you can purchase it for a discounted price (plus you get $10 towards a purchase every month). I’ll do a post once I recieve my first box and let you know what I think.

If you want to give Rocksbox a try and get your first month free, I have 2 more promo codes for the month, just leave you email in the comments section and I’ll send it your way (first come first serve)!

We’re planning a relaxing weekend at home. We’ll probably do some cleaning, some coloring and some Netflix binge watching (with wine of course). Cheers!
