Friday Feels // Vol. 1

Happy Friday, friends!

There are all sorts of “blog series” out there that bloggers do and while I’ve done them in the past, I typically don’t keep up with them very well. But alas, here I am with my own sort of “series” called Friday Feels in an effort to meet with you all here in this space at least weekly.

Blogging has long held my heart for several years and I don’t think I’ll ever truly be able to step away from it. While I’ve been encouraged and inspired to post here more often in the past two months, I want to keep it up so this is my attempt at doing just that.

So on Fridays, I’ll be here sharing some things from the week. It will probably be an assortment of random things like blog posts I’ve read, Instagrammers I enjoy, things like that.

So, here we go…

I’ve had this essential oil diffuser in my bedroom for a couple months and I love it! It has different time settings or an option to diffuse continuously until the water runs out (it will turn off automatically when this happens). When I let it run continuously, it will run for nearly 8 hours which I think is pretty awesome! I just bought another one for my classroom!

This vulnerable and honest blog post on the infertility roller coaster from Ashten O’Malley is hitting me right in the feels today. I have followed her for awhile now and she has been pretty open about this heartbreaking journey. She also sells BeautyCounter products and uses the earnings to help fund the costs of their fertility journey so be sure to check that out as well!

Now that I am getting into the gym regularly, I have been obsessed with workout clothes! haha. Even though I know that no one is paying me any attention at the gym, I still like to feel comfortable. Lately, I have been obsessed with the high rise 7/8″ leggings from Old Navy Active as I just think they suit my height (I’m 5’10) better than crops or full-length leggings. I have these in both black and olive green and they are my favorites currently!

My latest food obsession has definitely been brussels sprouts, which has shocked just about everyone in my family – including me – since I have typically been a super picky eater when it comes to vegetables. But I’ve been loving them lately! My favorite way to make them lately is to cut up thick-cut bacon into smaller pieces and fry them until done and then toss shredded brussels into the bacon fat. Once they cook for a couple minutes I’ll drizzle in about a tablespoon or two of The New Primal’s Mustard BBQ sauce. SO GOOD.

Well, that’s it for this week – have a great weekend friends!
