Here’s a go at some Friday Favorites. Today’s edition includes some of my favorite phone apps at the moment!

Glow Nurture

Yes, this is a pregnancy app. But, I love it! Each day it gives me an update on what is happening with the baby or your body that day. Also, every week it tells you want size the baby is in comparison to a fruit or veggie. For example, Baby P is the size of a sweet potato right now, but Sunday will change to a mango! It’s kind of a running joke in my family now…my dad will call me and say “how is the avocado today!?” Anyways, I like this app because it’s very concise, yet informative. It also lets you add bump photos each week so you can see your progress. Another cool thing is your hubby can download it and link up with all your info and read up on the same stuff….if they want to!



My go to! I travel/ am moving all the time, so this is my go to to find anything. Best dinner restaurant, best salads, best mexican food, best dry cleaners….you name it! Just type whatever you are looking for into the search bar and use your current location or type your location in, and voila! Your top rated searches pop right up! I love “yelping” before I go on vacation to find the best restaurants to make reservations or find things to do while there! This is a must have!

This one is more for the dudes, but I like it too! Our friend who plays for the Bruins actually told Jeff and I about this app and now we love it. Okay, so Jeff definitely uses it more than I do, but I definitely like to look at it every now and then to check in on how all our hockey friends are doing! Instead of having to go to your friends team’s page to see how they are doing in hockey and keep up with them, this app allows you to create a profile and follow all your favorites. Then everyday you have a news feed that your friends info/ stats pop up on from the night before. It’s pretty cool to have all of that info right there. Makes it super easy! You can also follow your favorite team, so it gives you those updates as well.




This app takes some of your average pictures and turns them into a beautiful watercolor painting. I have done this with a couple of photos I took right on my iPhone and can’t wait to print them out and put them up in our house. I think these would make great gifts for people!

Okay, this is a silly app, but it’s so entertaining. I think. Maybe I am just bored. But, you can make yourself into your own emoji to use in texts! Ha! Yeah, okay it sounds dumb, but it is really funny to use and see people’s reactions or get one from someone else to see how they made themselves look. Alright so after all the anticipation, here is my bitmoji….These are just a few examples of many emojis you can send as part as your message! Now go bitmoji yourself 🙂



Hope you enjoy these apps as much as I do! Happy Friday! 🙂


Friday Favorites

In an effort to be more consistent with my posting, I am going to start posting a “Friday Favorites” post every Friday. Over zealous? Maybe. But, I’m going to give it a shot.

I like to read different blogs, and a few of my favorite blogs do a “Friday Favorites” or a “Tuesday Ten”, etc. I actually look forward to reading (or just looking at the pics) of their favorite things each week, so thought I would start doing the same.

Here goes:

Favorite look: Love everything about this outfit.


Favorite book: You are thinking I’m crazy right now. But seriously go out and read The Duck Dynasty book! The story of how they got to where they are, their close knit family, and their strong faith in God is truly inspirational!


Favorite bite: Let’s be honest, chicken can get a little boring. This Honey Mustard Pretzel Chicken looks like it might make the taste buds happy.


Favorite Oiler: #2! I might be a little biased though.


Favorite baking blog: Magpies & More is my go to baking blog when I want to bake something! None of Maggie’s recipes will let you down! I promise!


Favorite DIY: I think this string heart is pretty darn cute, and only $35 to do! I’m going to do this, this summer!


Favorite Dream Vacation: The Maldives. I have no clue where that is, but it looks absolutely unreal.


Favorite Pup: Seriously, just look at him! Does he come in a non-shedding version? If so, we’ll take him!


Favorite movie couple: Doesn’t get much better than Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in Pretty Woman! I think it’s time for another movie from these two.


Favorite funny: I want to make these.


Favorite awe: How cute! Jeff and I actually ordered these shirts for his grandparents who go down to Florida for the Tiger’s fantasy baseball camp every year. This photo is not of them, but it is where I got the idea to do it. Apparently, they were a big hit!


Favorite circuit workout: Love how handy this workout is. I have actually done this one before, and it definitely gets your heart pumpin’! The fact that it requires minimal equipment is even better, and you can do it at home!


That is it for my first “Friday Favorites.” Hope you liked! Have a great weekend! 🙂
