Hi, guys!

This week was fun! The sun finally came out, and I launched my leggings, which was so, so, so cool. What an incredible opportunity. If you’re thinking about purchasing a pair, you can get 10% off with promo code carrotsncake. They’re only available for a limited time, so be sure to hop on it! 🙂

So, it’s Friday and you know what that means: It’s time for the next edition of What I’m Loving Lately!

TOMS Cabrillo Sneakers – How adorable are these sneakers? I need them in my life!!

I Am The Woman Who Has It All – This was great!

Chocolate Butter Balls – These protein balls were inspired by my love of chocolate and hitting my macros goals for the day. I’m definitely not a stickler for “the numbers,” but these babies are a well-balanced treat and, oh, so easy to make. If you missed the recipe, you can check it out in my Instagram feed!

The “If It Works for Me, It Will Work for You” Mentality – Great post from one of our DTFN registered dietitians!

Land’s End Cuff Shorts (+ Half Zip Mock Neck Sweater) – Shorts that don’t suck, specifically for ladies with muscular legs? That’s my goal in the coming weeks – to find them and share them with you guys. Blog post coming soon! These ones from Lands End are comfortable, flattering, and stylish (aka not frumpy). Keep a look out for more favorites! Related: The Modern Metro Shorts from Athleta that I mentioned last week arrived in the mail, and they are amazingggggg! They’re insanely comfy!

Optimum Nutrition Protein Almonds – OMG, these are literally the best treat ever. They are a delicious way to get my post-workout protein and carbs while also being a delectable dessert. They’re dipped in a whey-enriched coating and dusted with cocoa, so each package provides 10 grams of protein, 1-2g sugar, and doesn’t include any artificial colors or flavors – and I’m giving away two full boxes over on Instagram. Head over there for a chance to win! 🙂

Parenting with Love & Logic – I’m about a 1/3 of the way through this book, but I absolutely love it so far. It teaches you how to raise self-confident, responsible, and motivated children without nagging or power struggles. I feel like I’ve already learned so much and have already started to implement these things into how I parent Qman.

Sperry Seaside Perforated Sneakers – Spring has really, truly sprung here in Massachusetts, which means it’s FINALLY time to break out my Sperry’s. I love these babies so much and wear them a ton! And, right now, they’re on sale for just $52!

thredUP’s 6th Annual Resale Report– We buy and sell via thredUP ALL the time, so reading their annual resale report was super interesting with regard to buying/wearing secondhand and the habits, ideas, and views related to it.

J.Crew Shark Sweater– I saw this sweater at J.Crew the other day and even tried it on, but I didn’t end up buying it in the end – but now I’m having second thoughts about it. Am I too old to wear sharks on my clothing or is it kind of cool?

Spring/summer dresses from Athleta – SO MANY FAVORITES! Here are just some that I’m especially loving: Carefree Tee DressSantorini High Neck Mix StripeNewport Sweatshirt Dress, and Recharge Dress (on sale).
