Things I'm Loving Friday XV


1. ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK

Source
Okay, so I FINALLY got Netflix and immediately began watching OITNB! EVERYONE was talking about it and I wanted to see for myself. Sure enough, I was addicted after the first episode. I'm currently on episode 5 of season 1 (I can only watch while running on the treadmill or after London goes to bed so no binge-watching for me.) I can't wait to see what happens next!!! 

2. MOM SUPPORT

This week has been one of the toughest as a mama. London started daycare and the transition has been tough. He still cries when I drop him off and yells mama as I'm walking away. It hurts the heart. I'm so thankful for all the texts, emails and blog comments I received telling me to hang in there and letting me know it does get easier! 

3. THIS PURSE


So, a few weeks ago, I told you I was lusting over a purse I had seen on a few stitch fix reviews! Since Stitch Fix doesn't ship to Canada I went on an online hunt for it. I couldn't find it! THEN, on the way home from our vacation I found this purse in Target. It's not exactly the same but close AND, it was only 20 bucks!!! 

4. THESE SUNGLASSES



Awhile ago, one of my favourite bloggers (the first one I ever read) Julie from Peanut Butter Fingers posted about her favourite running glasses. I've been looking for something new for awhile. My running glasses were 10 dollar cheapies that were scratched, too loose and not really blocking the rays anymore. I waited until these were on sale and snatched them up! I wear them all the time (not just for running) and LOVE them!! They're lightweight and have nose and ear pad grips that keep them in place. They're worth the extra money and I've somehow managed to not break them yet!



What are you loving lately?
Now that I have Netflix what other series do I need to watch? (I've heard good things about Suits?)
Any fun weekend plans?  I'm hoping to take London to a water-park and I have 8 miles scheduled for Saturday.

Have a great weekend!!

  1. I watched all of Orange over a day and a half! So addicting! I have recently started watching Weeds from the start again. Binge watching is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine. So fun. Awesome blog!

  3. Love those sunglasses! I really should get running ones. I wear my really $$ ones right now and Chad hates it lol. I already broke one pair of them (ran into a door lol) and he had to search everywhere to find me the exact same pair since I have had them for 5 years.
    The fair is this weekend here so we will head there tomorrow :)
    I hope next week is easier with daycare. I am dreading it come the fall. Any tips send my way ;)

    1. Oh geeze, it is SOOO tough!! The owners say it's harder for London (and me) because he's older and has separation anxiety. Avery will do GREAT! She seems like such a social butterfly. London is definitely a big mama suck! I'm hoping it gets easier soon!

  4. We've finished the new season of OITNB and such a good show! We just started watching a show called Ray Donovan. It's kind of like Scandal. Still love your dress!

    1. Pistachio cheesecake sounds amazing! I brought cheesecake to our Bachelorette girls night last week and had strawberry swirl and it was AMAZING! I love cheesecake!

      I'm living vicariously through your photos of all your gorgeous summer nights ;)

  8. Suits for sure, although Season 4 that is airing right now isn't as good.

    This weekend we are hitting up the farmers market, then the lake to visit family and Sunday my dad is coming to take Liam to the fair!

  9. I love OITNB. We sort of binge watched the first season, but now Season 2 we are spreading out. In fact, we took about a month long break! I think we need to get back into it...

    1. I'm watching an episode every two days so I'm definitely dragging it out! It gives me something to look forward to, haha! I watch it when I'm stuck running on the treadmill, so that makes me runs go by really fast! Thanks for stopping by :)
