Happy March! We have made it through the bulk of the winter–yay! It is so nice to see signs of spring including more daylight hours! This last week I have noticed that when the kids leave for school, it is nice and light out! Anyway, as usual I am recapping the week with my Friday Favorites! Sharing a little bit of mom life and my latest favorite finds and products!

Friday Shopping Plans

I am so excited for today because this morning my mom and I are going to check out the brand new Homesense near me! I have heard that it like Homegoods and Marshalls, so I am sure it will be great. It is actually part of the Homegoods store brand!

My mom is my shopping buddy although we don’t get to do it as often as we like. Our favorite time to shop is our annual fall shopping trip which you can read about HERE

I will be sure to share what we find at Homesense on Instagram Stories and my Homegoods Happy Facebook group!

Favorite New Jewelry Shop

I am SO excited about a new mom owned online jewelry shop I just discovered!  Sisters and I Designs has the CUTEST leather and cork earrings and bracelets. They also offer cute bow ties  for little ones.

Every Friday, Sisters and I Designs has a Flash Sale on one of their collections. Last week, the Flash Sale was for their signature leather minis and I scooped up the deal! These earrings are the perfect size for me–just long enough without being too big. They are super lightweight too–I honestly don’t even feel like I am wearing any earrings.

My daughter picked out the white pair –these are perfect sized earrings for kids and teens!! You can not beat the prices of these!!

I’ve partnered with Sisters and I Designs for a special coupon code: jaclyn10 You can use this code in addition to the Flash Sale Deals! I’ll be sharing what the weekend deal is in my weekly Friday newsletter, so be sure to sign up to hear about the latest deal! I love how these earrings give  a pulled together, cute look….even when I’m sporting my usual workout wear:)

Favorite Workouts

These last few months, my husband and I have found an opportunity to work out together. I just shared a little story about our workout routine over on Today Show Parents if you want to take a look. It has been a while since the two of us have been workout buddies…maybe since the kids were babies and we would throw them in the jogging stroller and run?!

But we have found a few Youtube videos that we both love and I wanted to share them with you! In case you are looking for a good workout that will make you sweat I recommend Heather Robertson’s videos! She has everything from quick ten minute workouts to longer 45 minute routines. We have done a ton of them and so far almost all of them are great!

Besides Robertson’s videos, I also like Fitness Blender and the Tone it Up Girls! All of these videos are free! Do you have any Youtube workout video favorites??

Lego Storage Idea

The Lego situation in our house has gotten out of control. We have a designated space for them in this playroom, but they tend to creep into other spots in the house.

My six year old has been bringing them into our dining room and now we have a second area of Legos. I’ve been eyeing these Lego cinch sacks  and this week I had enough–I decided we needed to have one!

This deal was TOO GOOD to pass up! Hopefully, the discount is still going but I was able to get ON SALE! I can’t wait for it to arrive and I hope this will be the lego storage idea to end all our lego mess woes:)

This Week on the Blog

Earlier this week, I shared a post from the heart, 6 Ways to Connect with Your Tweens and Big Kids! If you are the parent of a big kid, I’d love for you to read this post and let me know what you think! There is certainly not an owner’s manual for raising kids, so I love hearing and connecting with other parents on advice and ideas!

Also, this week, I shared our Trader Joe’s snack favorites!! Every time I go to Trader Joe’s my kids are so excited–all of the snacks there are so good. I’ve got a snack shopping list for you to help with your next trip to TJs! Check out the whole post HERE!


That wraps up this week’s Friday Favorites! Hope you have a great weekend!

      Thank you friend! That’s too bad about TJs for you–we didn’t have one nearby for many years as well. Have a great weekend too!!
