Happy Friday you guys! I am slowly trying to get back into the swing of blogging semi-regularly. Maternity leave has been much busier than I imagined it would be... amazingly busy but hasn't left me with all the free time in the world to blog, watch Netflix, and read lots of trashy novels like I imagined. Tiny humans require a LOT of your time, believe it or not :) Anyways, on to my random five of the week!

Last week I had a dermatology appointment for a total body skin check. A few years ago I had a severely dysplastic skin cancer removed from my back that left me with a pretty big scar and a permanent reminder to lather on that sunscreen, wear a hat and sit under an umbrella at the beach. And the thing is, I have never laid in a tanning bed a day in my life! Proof that preventative skin checks are super important! I love that my friend Emily just posted about this same thing last week. Call a dermatologist and schedule your skin check today!!

A few weeks ago I posted a picture of my new espadrilles on my Insta story and had SO many questions about where they were from. Target for the win (duh). I have linked them here... they are super comfortable and only $25! I also scored these adorable heels that I cannot wait to wear on repeat this summer.

I just love supporting small businesses and hardworking mamas and when I find a shop I love I want to pass it along. One of my favorite shops since having Vivi is Willow Crowns. All of Vivi's gold headbands from her newborn shoot were from Willow Crowns and she also has a lot of their gorgeous bows.

I had a lot of questions about my distressed white jeans. They are from Old Navy and only $36. They are super comfortable and I've linked them here.

It is so amazing what a woman's body goes through to carry and deliver a baby. I am almost fully recovered from my C section and have started to ease back into the gym. I got cleared to begin exercising at 6 weeks but was told that I can't do abdominal/core exercises until 10 weeks postpartum. From the IVF process to pregnancy to a major surgery, my body has gone through so much in the past year so I am truly giving myself grace when I can barely lift 10 lbs or do 5 squats without being sore haha! Baby steps people ;)
