FRYday: Emily

Now that we’ve split up our Frydays I feel like I haven’t chatted with you all in so long! I have so much on my mind so let’s get to it:

WEARING: I have been such a baby about getting back to exercising. I know myself and if I go to a class I am gonna go all out and I won’t be able to walk for a week after. So, I’m trying SO hard to ease myself into it. Like 10 push ups a or walking hills with Raleigh strapped in this Linen Ergo. Loving these killer Pureboost Adidas, there’s so many awesome prints I could have one for every day of the week. Love this cheetah print and black satellite. Perfect gym shoe, if I ever get there.  Got any good work-outs for someone who lost all muscle mass? Ha.pureboostReading: I trust Cup of Jo for just about everything including her readers’ comments. I went through her latest book rec post’s comments and found a bunch of new books to add to my list — basically if one person suggested it followed by a handful more of people vehemently agreeing, I took note! Have you read any? Got any to add to my list?books

Shrill // The Psychopath Test // Tiny Beautiful Things // Fates & Furies // Tell the Wolves I’m Home // When Breath Becomes Air // Epilogue //

DECORATING: I got my boys the cutest Herschel backpacks for school and then they spotted these hideous Pokemon ones. I bet you can guess which ones they’re actually wearing?  Guess these darling packs will be wall decor until those boys wise up. 😉 I got them the middle two but love these stone colored ones! 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 //herschel

WATCHING: The clock. First grade is so long, man!! Looking forward to a weekend with Hayes, it’s been lonely for all of us without him here. Cal and I have had a lot of fun together, but I am sure he’ll be glad to be rid of me once his school starts next week!

FEELING: I am actually super excited about our new Off Duty feature. It’s been a good motivator for me to get ready and really just enjoy my body no matter what stage. For sure there are some days I don’t get ready and skip it, but I have always loved the art (eyeroll) of getting dressed! Nic and Jenna always look amazing, so I already knew they’d rock this, but it’s still been fun to see theirs as well!

ALSO! The phone case you’ve been seeing in all my Off Duty posts is THIS! It’s so freaking genius and every person with full hands needs it. I have Rose Gold and am loving it so much.i6-Matte-RG-BG02-FINAL_1024x1024

Happy weekend everyone!!

    I just read Modern Lovers based on a Cup of Jo recommendation and loved it. Also highly recommend Ordinary Grace, it’s the best book I’ve read in a while. Excited to check out some of these as well.

    21 day fix for a workout! it’s a good transition workout to get you back into the routine and build some muscle back. i’ve done a few rounds of it the last few months (my baby is 9 months now) and it has been a great, easy way to get 30 min of workout in without worrying about making it to the gym every day. and thanks for the book recs, i’m writing them down!

    When Breath Becomes Air is amazing. One of the best books I’ve ever read! BUT be prepared for tears! Lots of tears!
