Friday Favorites

One of my favorite mom accounts to follow on Instagram is Shay Shull, from @MixandMatchMama. She’s got the sweetest family, an inspiring faith, and tries to celebrate every day like it’s the best day! Something I am seriously striving to do as a mother. Every Friday on her blog, she shares her “Favorite Things” from her week…. because why not share some happiness?! As a personal goal to click publish once a week, I’m partaking in my first Friday Favorites!


Back at the beginning of September, I shared my Fall Goals with you HERE… one of those goals being to get outside with Connor in our new (to us) jogging stroller. It’s now become my favorite part of our morning routine. *If you’re in the market for a jogging stroller, I highly recommend BOB!

Fun fact: Back in the Fall of 2017 I ran the Columbus marathon (yes, 26.2 miles). I swore off running after that. But with the pandemic closing my local spin studio, and a baby that loves fresh air… I may have fallen back in love with the pavement. And dare I say I’m contemplating signing up for a 10K?? Have I caught the bug again?


Jake and I are at the end of our Whole15! (AKA Whole30, but only 15 days because let’s be honest… we need pumpkin bread in our lives.) We’re both happy to report that we are sleeping better, feeling leaner, and motivated to incorporate this kind of diet in our everyday lives.

PS the picture above was from a trip out to Napa Valley in the Fall of 2018. I recently found an old school disposable camera from that trip, and this was my favorite one developed <3 I just love this guy.


Another favorite: We just booked a trip to Mexico in February with these two! It’ll be our first time away from Connor, which kills my heart…. but I know it’ll be nice to getaway with just my husband 😉


Lastly, I’ll be closing out the week with my first wedding with Kirkbrides tomorrow! Wish me luck!

I’ll be back next week, talking about my favorite wedding trends! XOXO,
