We are several days into May, but it's never too late for a currently post, right? Here's what's been up lately and then a few favorites I'm loving right now.
celebrating longer days and great weather. South Alabama doesn't always give us springlike weather, but lately we've been having lots of sunshine and breezy weather. Such a welcome change from rain. Also celebrating Mother's Day this weekend! Read below to see what we are doing.
creating a rhythm again...hopefully. I feel like I've gotten out of the...well rhythm. I'm a lover of routines and lately I feel like I haven't had one. That throws me off, so I'm looking to create a new rhythm and hopefully throw in some things that I love, but haven't been doing a lot of lately. Also, meal plans. It helps me with my budget (that is struggling, but climbing) and keeps me eating healthy. My goal was to do three Whole30s this year and I'm thinking it's about time for another one.
wearing shorts and tees. Although, my closet is pretty small (literally, because midtown living) and a lot of my clothes come from clean outs of friend's closets. I recently signed up with ThredUp. I haven't ordered anything yet, but I've enjoyed browsing. Hopefully I'll place an order next week and get some more comfortable summer outfits!
sharing ...less on social media. Because I haven't been on it. I'll admit that I've taken a few sneaks here and there, but it's been ten days and I'm determined to go more. Also, sharing two recipes down below! One for easy pancakes and another for buttery biscuits.
going on an interactive, behind the scenes, walking food tour! I learned about this tour that happens in my downtown area on the weekends. This weekend, they are offering a special tour for Mother's Day, with extra surprises for moms along the way, and Dad and I are taking mom! I've been wanting to do more experience gifts and this seems like the perfect way to start that!
some Breakfast Bites I shared these pancakes on my iG story awhile back and lots of people asked me for the recipe. I chose this recipe one day because i had everything on hand, except one ingredient (more on that below). I didn't realize at the time that they were vegan! They are so delicious and my favorite pancake recipe right now. the biscuit recipe is my aunt's! And also another go to because i usually have everything on hand.
