Hi friends! Happy May to you!

In today’s edition of the Friday 5, I’m sharing 5 things we’ve been loving in our home lately. After all, we’ve been spending ALL of our time at home! From food to activewear, Quinn’s latest favorite thing, and a fun fact about me… here’s this week’s random mix of favorites.

Enjoy your weekend!

1. Daily Harvest

Daily Harvest is coming in clutch right now! Not only does DH make some delicious smoothies from wholesome ingredients, but they now have flatbread pizzas that are all gluten- and dairy-free. I love everything from DH, but I especially love their bites (OMG, little bites of heaven!), their bowls (so great when you want a quick and healthy meal), and lattes (when I need a caffeine boost). Most of the lattes have some sort of adaptogens in them, which are beneficial for stress and hormones. If you’re looking for some easy and super nutritious meal and snack options, DH is it!

2. Athleta Salutation Stash Pocket 7/8 Tight

Do you need a new pair of leggings to motivate you for all the home workouts? I feel ya. Sometimes the best motivation is a cute, new workout outfit to get me in the mood. These tights from Athleta are buttery smooth, have just the right amount of compression, and can be worn for lifting, running, yoga – however you choose to move! Lovvvve!!

3. Making It (on Hulu)

This show has been fun to watch as a family, and it has inspired Quinn to make all sorts of projects… like this scooter and bike rack, how cool! If you need some projects to keep your kids occupied, we highly recommend this show!

4. Vegetable Chopper

As if I needed another kitchen tool, this vegetable chopper is a major time-saver! It’s amazing for all sorts of delicious veggie creations. You can chop nuts, cheese, cucumbers, carrots, onion, potatoes – you name it.

5. Middleditch & Schwartz Comedy (Netflix)

Comedy duo Thomas Middleditch and Ben Schwartz turn small ideas into epically funny stories in this series of completely improvised comedy specials.

Mal and I saw Middleditch and Schwartz perform live a couple of years ago when they came to Boston, so we were psyched for this 3-episode series on Netflix. It’s absolutely hilarious. We were crying-laughing because the improv got so insane!

Fun fact: I dated Ben Schwartz for about 1.5 years in college, and I may or may not have encouraged him to try out for the improv group. He actually credits me for pushing him to try improv! 😉
