What I’m lovin’ in May

Today is the first of a recurring series I’m calling “What I’m lovin’!”.

Here’s how it works: On the last Friday of every month, I’ll share a list of all the things I’m lovin’ during the month.

I’m so excited to share this month’s with you – it gave me motivation to look past the 90 degree heat and thick humidity that has engulfed Columbia to see all there is to love about May!

1. Colorful, fresh produce is in season!

Last month, my family and I filled my grandparent’s garden with tiny plants that have blossomed and are now bearing fruit and vegetables for us to enjoy!

2. Workouts from Work Hard Eat Harder!

It’s just a bonus that my newest blogger obsession also happens to be a high school classmate of mine (so it’s verified: she’s pretty stellar).

The first workout of hers I tried was the 20 minute Treadmill Blast – and as a runner who completed a half marathon a few months ago I tell you..this was tough! But it left me wanting more! I also tried her Egg-o-cado recipe and have been making it several times a week as a post-workout breakfast – quick, easy & delicious!

My favorite workout so far is the Total Body Circuit – tried it with the Hubs and he also loved it!

I love the combination of a workout + a recipe in Alex’s posts. She also includes links to videos that demonstrate some of the moves which is really helpful for the uncoordinated, clueless people of the world like me! There’s also very little (if any) equipment required so you can try these high intensity workouts wherever you are!

 

3. The Etsy #CraftParty is just around the corner! I’m helping some fellow crafty friends {Shanika of Life is Pichey & Emily from Butterfly Vintage} plan the event in Columbia! We’re so excited about it!

If you’re wondering what the world it is, check out Etsy’s website for details about this international event. If you’re local, mark your calendar for June 6th from 6-9pm & come craft with us on the patio of First Citizens Cafe on Main Street – a block from the State House! Be sure to follow Columbia’s Etsy Market Team on Facebook for the latest event details and for all things crafty in Columbia!

 

4. The fabric on my new Super Tote bag!

Not only is the fabric sweet, the pattern (from Noodlehead) is stellar – classic and oh-so-useful!

5. Roses are bloomin’ all over!

You may have seen my post at the beginning of the month about my Coretta Scott King rose bush so you know how much I love roses! Well, I’m happy to say that my rose bush is doing ok in my flower bed out front! My Gammy would be so proud! 🙂

6. My Magic Bullet I’m really putting some miles on that thing!

If you’re in the mood for a smoothie, check out my latest Tasty Tuesday post for an easy-peasy, healthy recipe to keep you cool in the summer heat!
