Happy friday friend! What do you have planned this weekend? Jon and I have traveled the last two weekends and decided to stay home and take it easy this weekend and I am so excited! We are going to start getting stuff ready for the baby, pick out paint colors for our house, and go see a movie (my version of relaxing lol). I have such a hard time taking it easy and relaxing. I am a busy body and thrive off of going a million miles a minute. The downside of that being that I always go too hard, try to do too many things and then end up crashing and being exhausted. I have definitely slowed down since becoming pregnant and have been learning to listen to my body and rest when I am tired and not push myself too hard. It is a challenge for me but super important because it's not just about me anymore and that has been such a blessing! What do you do to relax and recharge? I'd love to know! Ok, enough updates here are my Friday 5 for this week! If you're new to the The Bargain Belle the Friday 5 is a series I do weekly. I share 5 things from the week that I enjoy. It could be anything from an article I found interesting, beauty/fashion tips, a movie trailer and of course sales!
