TGIF everyone! Are you ready for the long weekend? I sure am! We have friends in town from Atlanta that used to live here so I'm excited for all the festivities we have ahead of us.
Here are some things I'm loving today:
1. Blue Angels- Every year the blue angels do an air show the week of the Naval Academy graduation and it's by far my favorite day in Annapolis. It doesn't matter how many times I've seen them fly I'm always amazed and awed by the show.
Here is a clip from inside the cockpit of one plane that is just incredible! The views of Annapolis are awesome and I can't believe how close they fly to each other.
2. The Go-Pod- We bought one of these for Matthew so that we could have a place for him to play/hang out outside while we're out there. So far we love it! Not only is it great because he can watch everything Miller is doing but it keeps him contained and happy! It is very light weight, comes with a carrying case,and easily wipes clean. I plan to take it everywhere with me this summer- the pool, beach, park, etc. We got ours at Target but you can also find them on Amazon and at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
3. Special K Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein bars- So I'm well aware that these aren't that good for me and they definitely don't fill me up as much as some other protein bars but these have become my afternoon treat to curb my sweet tooth. Come 3pm I'm dying for m&ms or chocolate chip cookies so instead of one of those I usually treat myself to one of these. I'm not sure it's the right answer but I'm baby stepping into breaking this sugar habit. Does anyone have any good protein bar recommendations? and not Kind bars- I'm sort of over those right now.
4. Transportation Party Invites- We decided to have a planes, trains, cars etc party for Miller. He's really into anything that moves so I decided to expand it beyond trains. I had the invitations and printables made by Lauren Haddox Designs. I also used her last year for his nautical themed first birthday and I love what she does! I don't do anything custom I just order her DIY printable party pack and then she personalizes the invitation. You can find tons of great party themes in her etsy shop here.
I hope you all have an awesome long weekend and enjoy lots of delicious food and drinks!
