It’s Friday again! Â Hooray. Â We have a special weekend on the horizon with it being Mother’s Day! Â I don’t think we have anything planned – or actually, I hope Aiden has a good night’s sleep planned.
Anyways, here is this week’s Top Five Friday Favorites:
How to Foam Roll. Â I have been back in the swing of things with running, which always makes different muscles feel tight and sore. Â Foam rolling works wonders and feels oh so good – well actually, it’s that hurts so good type of feeling, but it’s a quick deep tissue massage. Â I suggest that everyone does it! Â David and I bought the Trigger Point Grid Roller a few years ago and absolutely love it. Â It does get warped or softer like some of the other ones. Â It’s definitely worth the extra $$.
Gluten-Free Lemon Bars in a Jar. Â I love lemon bars and anyway to make them gluten-free, I’m in. Â This recipe calls for butter, but you can easily sub in the Earth Balance buttery spread or baking barsÂ to make them dairy-free too.
Hanky Panky Signature Lace Racerback Bralette.Â I think this bra is so cute and it says that it’s actually full coverage. Â I find that I have several racerback tanks for the summer, but there’s always a bra strap showing unless you wear a strapless bra, but those are ultra uncomfortable in my opinion. Â If I ever wean Aiden from breastfeeding, maybe I’ll purchase this! Â Since I’ve been wearing nursing bras for over a year, I can’t fathom the idea of wearing underwire again…
Aiden Sleeping Through the Night! Â On Wednesday night, Aiden slept from 7:30 pm – 5:00 am, nursed and then went back to bed until 7:45 am. Â This is a record for us over here. Â He’s only done this one other time in his life and that was at least a month ago. Â I had decided that I needed to visit a sleep consultantÂ again and figure out what to do since David wasn’t able to calm him down anymore. Â He must have knew I was plotting this because he randomly did it on his own. Â I am not holding my breath that he’ll do it tonight – only time will tell.
Athleta Twister Bikini. Â My mom got this for me for Mother’s Day because I was telling her that all my bikini tops are not going to work anymore with Aiden for multiple reasons. Â First, he is constantly tugging on my top, so I don’t think a string bikini is good for this and secondly, I just feel like I need more coverage now than I did pre-baby. Â I really like this option!
There you have it. Â I hope that everyone has a good Mother’s Day weekend – treat your mother nice!
What are you doing for your mother this weekend?
Do you foam roll?
Bets on if Aiden sleeps through the night again? Â I’m not holding my breath, but at least I know he can do it!
