Happy Friday friends! I hope you had a nice week. It rained a lot here in Houston, but I won’t complain too much so long as the sun shines this weekend. 🙂
Michael and I are venturing out to our first restaurant this weekend since March 7th! We picked a restaurant that’s only serving dinner on its patio and requires reservations to even show up. I snagged the earliest reservation to avoid any crowds. I’m planning on getting way overdressed to celebrate the occasion!

This week’s workouts …
For workouts this week, I did at-home Orangetheory on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (on a roll this week!) and yoga via this YouTube channel on Friday morning. Both Orangetheory and yoga with Adriene are free! Really loving Adriene’s yoga YouTube channel!
I’m planning on getting in a long walk in this afternoon (Friday) and likely on Sunday too!

My Favorite Things this Week
Bead Jewelry Making Kit // Such a random purchase, but I’ve had so much fun this week making colorful bracelets! An activity that involves your hands but not a screen – win! Totally worth the $13!
Bissell PowerFresh Steam Mop // I’ve been eyeing this mop for months! It goes in and out of stock quite often. I finally snagged it a week or so ago. It works GREAT on my kitchen and bathroom floors! It also comes with a lot of different attachments that I didn’t even realize it came with until I started unpacking it. You can steam clean furniture, carpets, and smaller spaces like grout around your sink or in your shower!
Kendra Scott Earrings // I received a few new pieces from Kendra Scott this week and this pair of earrings is definitely my favorite! They’re chunky and the perfect vintage-y gold!
Have a nice weekend!
