Happy Friday! Michael and I made our way to Louisiana yesterday for an extended Thanksgiving holiday. We have some personal stuff going on behind the scenes (all good) that I’ll definitely share soon (sorry to be cryptic). Thanksgiving is weird this year. We’re only planning on seeing immediate family and not doing much besides hanging with them. I know this year the holiday looks different for everyone, and there’s so much stress about planning and doing the right thing to keep everyone healthy. Whatever your plans are, I hope you’re able to take the day to relax and reflect on the bright spots this year has brought.
This Week’s Blog Posts
This week was light on blog posts. To be honest, it was a crazy busy week behind the scenes, so while I had planned to push out two additional blog posts this week, something had to give. I’m working on a handful of fun posts for next week, including more gift guides ahead of Black Friday, Shop Small Saturday, and Cyber Monday!
Second Trimester Recap + Pregnancy Q&A // A full recap of my second trimester + answering all of your questions you submitted via Instagram Stories!
Beautycounter Black Friday SALE! // 15% OFF SITEWIDE + FREE SHIPPING! Beautycoutner launched its Black Friday sale this week! It’s still running strong! Beware, if you’re eyeing any of the Holiday Sets, they’re selling out … grab them at 15% OFF while you can! I included ALL of my favorite Beautycounter products in the blog post!

This week’s workouts …
Thankful for two long walks over the weekend last weekend! The weather was gorgeous in Houston! I squeezed in a 30-minute strength workout via the Peloton app on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Thursday was hectic so I skipped out. Planning on getting in a 30-minute yoga session via Peloton on Friday + incorporating a few additional long walks this weekend!
If you’re looking for a great at-home workout, I highly recommend trying out the Peloton app! You can try it out for the first month for free! And even after that, it’s only $12.99/month.

My Favorite Things this Week
All things Lululemon! I cashed in a couple of birthday gift cards last week and received my new Lululemon pieces this week. All of them are SO GOOD! I shared a brief try-on of them on Stories, but I wanted to share them here too! A great treat-yourself gift or a great holiday gift for your mom or sister!
Lululemon Align Leggings // I have two pair of Align leggings. They’re so good that I needed a third! They’re the most comfortable leggings I own and can be worn for working out + as part of an athleisure look. Even with my bump, I’m still able to wear my normal size. I always wear a size 6 in lululemon pants. They’re highwaisted and so dang comfortable. I prefer the 28 inch length. I’m 5’4″ and they hit right at my ankles.
Lululemon Swiftly Long Sleeve // My first long sleeve tee from lululemon. Not sure how this is my first, but it’s safe to say it won’t be my last! Again, so comfortable and the fit is fantastic! I ordered my regular, pre-pregnancy size 4 (I wear a size 4 in all lululemon tops and bras), and it fits perfectly over the bump! I snagged the white/white/black colorway. It’s available in 2 other colors.
Lululemon Brunswick Tank // The BEST tank! Great for working out or throwing on with leggings and layering underneath a long sleeve. Even with my bump it’s long enough to cover the crotch area when wearing leggings. I have my usual size 4 in the black colorway.
Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag // So excited for my new fanny! 😉 But really! This belt bag is sleek and compact but still has room for all of the important things – my phone, credit cards, hand sanitizer etc. I have it in black, but it’s available in TONS of colors!
Have a great weekend!
