Five Loves on Friday


Happy first Friday of April, friends!  I hope yours is off to a beautiful start!  Looking forward to sharing a handful of highlights from mine with you now!

One  //  Favorite Purchase of the Year!

After sixteen years of sleeping on our old mattress, we finally invested in a new one and we couldn't love it more!  We did a ton of research and decided on Brooklyn Bedding's Aurora luxury hybrid bed.  It's so comfortable and sleeps really cool thanks to their TitanCool tech.  I'll leave it at that, so I don't risk sounding like an advertisement. Ha!  We are very happy sleepers though, and after years of a less than comfortable mattress we fully appreciate this purchase! 

Two  //  Saturday Shopping Spree with my Sweeties

While I didn't snap a single shot of our shopping fun it definitely needed to make it's way onto this list of loves!  We hit Kohl's with 30% off and $10 off $50 coupons and then  JCPenny's with a 25% off coupon.  Between both shops my girls found so many beautiful pieces, completely refreshing their wardrobe for the warmer months ahead.  It made my heart happy to be able to spoil them a bit and to see them excited about the new items they found and love!  Plus, it was all on sale before any of the aforementioned coupons were applied!  Win/win!

Three  //  Zoo Time

We followed up shopping with family fun at the zoo.  It was a really chilly day, so we headed straight for the warmest spot with a truly tropical feel, the Jungle building!

The atmosphere was just what we needed, a taste of the warmth and beauty ahead in the spring and summer months!

Four  //  Walk and Talk

One of my favorite things about welcoming springtime is getting back to our family walk and talks.  Along this walk we enjoyed the song of a cute cardinal and passed a darling dear along the path.  Many laughs were had along the way, making it the very best kind of exercise in my book! 

Walking on the trails at the lake, our favorite hometown hangout, came with the beautiful bonus of taking in this breathtaking view too!  The entire evening brought so many reasons to praise God for the beauty of His creation!

Thanks so much for popping by today!  Cheers to the weekend!  Hope yours is as "sweet" as my first s'mores blizzard of the season!
