6.24.16 - Friday Favorites

Hi friends!!  Happy Friday to all of you :) Any big weekend plans on the agenda? I'm looking forward to spending time with my husband tonight - most likely grilling or going out to dinner - a couples baby shower on Saturday and then a family shower on Sunday. It will certainly be a busy weekend, but definitely a fun one full of celebrating our little girl.

Life In Leggings

Now, it's time for Friday Favorites!!  I'm sharing what I'm loving this Friday with all of you, but feel free to share what you're loving this Friday with me in the comments below - I can't wait to hear.

Food - Halo Top Ice Cream

Has anyone tried Halo Top yet? I saw it at Kroger and threw it into my cart with extremely low expectations. Since I barely passed my 3 hour glucose tolerance test, I've been trying to keep my sugar intake low. I felt like how good could low carb, low calorie ice cream really be? Um, amazing apparently. Like AMAZING in capital letters, followed by a million exclamation points. I'm addicted and apparently so is everyone else because my Kroger has been sold out for over a week. Run to your grocery store and buy this asap!

Find - Inexpensive Jewelry

Two times a year our hospital hosts a $5.00 jewelry sale. I'm not sure if this is just a hospital event or what - it was popular at the last hospital I worked at as well - and I was really excited to stock up on these inexpensive statement necklaces! I'm loving the blue seed bead turquoise necklace and the gold and white pearl combo. Here are some budget friendly alternatives here/here/here 
Food - Grilled Vegetables

I love grilled veggie skewers and these are so easy!! Simply thred your favorite veggies on, brush on a mix of melted butter and hot sauce and grill until cooked all the way through. I love when they have slightly burnt edges. My favorite combo is red pepper, zucchini, yellow pepper, onion and orange pepper. 

Fashion - Kimonos

I love kimonos! They're perfect for pregnancy too because you can just layer them over a tank and go. They're by far my summer staple. I've linked a few I'm loving below that are all budget friendly :)

  1. I have my eye out for a kimono or two! They're so cute and I think it would be a good summer coverup for breastfeeding! (oh, and post baby love handles.. ha!)

  2. That's a great idea about using the kimono as a summer coverup for breastfeeding... oh and definitely post baby love handles ;) Now, I have even more reasons to love them!
