Top Five Friday Favorites

Hallelujah! It’s Friday!  Like I mentioned yesterday, I haven’t been feeling the best, so it’s been a bit of a long week.  We are having a block party at our house tomorrow night, but other than that, we have NO PLANS!  David and I will get our long runs as well.

With that said, here’s this week’s Friday favorites:

10 Facts About Raising Toddler Boys.  My mom sent me this link this week and I felt like it was completely spot on with my life (and what I have to look forward to).  All moms of boys should read this ASAP!

Athleta Chaturanga Capri.  I had a giftcard to Athleta that I couldn’t wait to spend.  When I dropped Aiden off at drop-in daycare for my work meeting, Athleta just so happened to be on the way home.  I bought these pants and couldn’t be happier.  They are slimming, comfy, sweat resistent, durable and super cute!  They are my favorite pair of capris I own.
