Friday Favorites

Happy Friday Everyone! Tomorrow is our first competition of the season, so it's going to be a busy weekend for me. My parents are coming into town to help out though & that always makes me happy - because they're my favorite & because it means I will get to go out to breakfast on Sunday :) 

Apart from the chaos of competition prep & my scary doctor's appointment on Tuesday - this week has been relatively calm. I'd planned all of our meals ahead of time & even went so far as to post them on the fridge. Eric thought I'd lost it, but OMG it has made our lives so much better. We've had something homecooked - not even frozen - every night this week. And I've packed my lunch every day this week too. If you're wondering what this has to do with Friday Favorites, well it's because these bowls from Pampered Chef are my favorite. I use them every day to take cottage cheese, veggie dip, peanut butter, etc. in my lunch. What I love about them is that they are 1 cup & have markings for 1/4 cup, 1/2 cup, and 3/4 cup so I'm totally aware of my portions! 

My next favorite is my FitBit! I got a FitBit Flex from my mother-in-law for Christmas & I wasn't really sure if I'd love it or not. I had my concerns about wearing it on my wrist & if it'd really be useful. Umm... it's awesome. I love that it syncs automatically to my iPhone & then updates My Fitness Pal with my exercise calories each day. If we're being honest, I'm not hitting 10,000 steps every day, but I'm finding ways to get more in all of the time. If you're looking for a way to hold yourself accountable, I definitely recommend this

And my last favorite of the week... getting ready for Valentine's Day! Having a little girl on Valentine's Day is about as fun as it gets. I'm fully stocked up on all things red, pink, and hearts. She is going to look adorable! Here are a few of the items I've purchased for Ella... 

And then there is this shirt... 

It is technically a boys shirt, but I've decided that Ella is going to wear it anyways. She is totally a love machine & paired with black leggings & a headband, she'll totally rock it. 

Have a Great Weekend Everyone!
