So happy to have another little girl to spoil in the fam! You know I love my boys, but I have to admit that shopping for girls is just a tad more fun! I'm pretty sure I've bought just about every Nerf gun, Star Wars, and Ninja Turtle do dad at Target so I'm more than happy to move on over to the other toy aisles :)

I've definitely experienced some set backs in the blog department lately. My motivation wasn't all that it was at the beginning of January and I definitely learned to extend myself a little grace. One thing that has pushed me back into creativity mode is Jenna Kutcher's podcast, Goal Digger. The episode I listened to earlier this week was called "10 Ways to Create a Content Calendar" and it was majorly inspiring. So inspiring in fact, that I wrote the frame work for today's post on Monday and have been filling it in all week as I come across the five things I've been digging. She says "Stress work is not our best work," and I could not agree more! I plan on rounding up a few of my favorite episodes for you all to check out in a post soon!

The herb garden is BOOMIN! So much that I think I need to divide and transplant some of them outside. I'll definitely be reading up on how to do that and share what I find out in the part two of the herb garden blog series soon! If you all have any tips I'm all ears! Definitely don't want to kill them on accident... haha

Besides cilantro, TASSEL earrings are my jam. I've got a sassy little collection that I've been adding to over the past couple of weeks. In this week's blog post, I showed you how I made a simple white shirt and jeans look like a million bucks just by switching out the fun earrings and shoes to make different combinations! My favorites are the blue hoopish ones with the tiny tassels :)

You know what comes after the Spring showers? The Summer swim suits.
You thought I was going to say "May flowers" didn't you?

Eating healthy is always on top of mind. Sometimes I cram it down with tacos and cookies, but somehow it always creeps its way back up to the top of the list. Probably because I recently tried on swim suits and wanted to curl up with a roll of cookie dough and rock myself to sleep.
Apples + peanut butter and La Croix has been my go to afternoon snack. I've been trying to meal prep as much as possible too. I will say that someone keeps bringing me Reece cups and that someone also knows that I have no self control when it comes to Reece cups. Which brings me to...

WARNING RANT IN PROGRESS: You know what is the worst invention of all time? Reece's peanut butter Easter eggs. They are so freaking good, but why. why. why. do they have to do this to us right before Summer? I will eat those pumpkin and tree shaped Reece's until the cows come home and just slap a big sweater on, but I find that a swim suit does not hide those Easter egg shaped ones as well. It's the weirdest thing.

Well sorry to end on a rant, but I'm off to go drink coffee and eat copious amounts of Reece's peanut butter eggs...

Happy Friday!
