5 Things on Friday

Happy Friday everyone! Is it just me, or did this week fly right by? It's going to be May before we know it. Anyway, I have 5 randoms for you on this lovely Friday.

1. We have 0 plans this weekend and I kinda like it! I'm sure we'll get out and do something but it's nice  to know we can just relax if we want to. (Well as much as you can relax with an almost two year old wreaking havoc.)

2. Speaking of almost two year olds, yesterday Emerson turned 23 months old. We are just one month away from the big TWO. I just can't believe it. We have something fun planned for her birthday and I'm really looking forward to it.

3. I went to Zumba again this week and I am obsessed. It is so much fun! I've always wondered just how much of a workout it is so I wore my heart rate monitor and it says I burned almost 500 calories in about 50 minutes. I think Zumba has the potential for more calorie burn but the instructor in our class stops between each song. Right now I'm only able to make it once a week because of E's dance class but I'm hoping I'll be able to start doing it more often. It's so much fun it doesn't even feel like a workout.

4. I am on the hunt for new bedding for our bed. I want a feather bed, a down (or down alternative) comforter and a white or light colored duvet set. Does anyone have any suggestions? It needs to be super soft and comfortable! Here are a few of my inspiration pictures on Pinterest.

5. I haven't talked much about it but I am still working on my verses for Beth Moore's Siesta Scripture Memory Team. At this point I can say them all but I have to look at the verse number to jog my memory. I've loved doing this and I find that my verses will pop up in my head and random times. It's pretty neat! You can go here to see my verses.

Try urban outfitters apartment section online - they usually have a good selection of duvet covers and a lot of times have great sales on them!

Ooh, I love the look of feather/down beds and comforters, so inviting! Can't believe E is so close to being 2! We went to the zoo last week and thought of you when we were in the "tiger tunnel." :)

As for the comforter inserts (not the cover) and feather beds I highly recommend Eddie Bauer's. Just make sure you pick the right weight for your temperature needs. :)

I love weekends with nothing!! The best! I have never tried zumba and keep saying I need to!!

Zumba will surely be the death of me! I LOVE the workout but I definitely do NOT love watching myself pretend I can dance in the mirror!!

And for your new bedding -- check Overstock.com. That is where I got my alternative down comforter and LOVE it! The prices are great and they have a ton of options!

Weekends with zero plans are the best! Can't believe E will be 2 next week!

Love Zumba!! I only do it once a week as well but that's all my schedule and kiddos allow! BUT I have lost 19lbs since the first of the year!! Of course I work out at home too! Have you ever tried the hip hop abs DVDs?
