3) Qalo Ring
4) Tea2Go
5) Foil Pack Dinners

1. Bojack Horseman on Netflix

I've been looking for a new "mindless" kind of show to watch while doing activities like blogging, researching, goofing off, etc. I've seen ads for Bojack Horseman but never really understood what it was about. Something about people with animal heads living in Hollywood. It wasn't until I heard an NPR interview with the creator that it piqued my interest. It's actually incredibly funny, and has some huge names in it like Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie, and Aaron Paul. It also has some great music. I've started the first season this week and I'm liking it so far.


2. Goodie Reusable Pouches

I'll say that the invention of the squeezable fruit/veggie pouch has been a lifesaver for parents everywhere. But individual pouches can get pretty dang expensive. I found these Goodie Reusable Squeeze Pouches on Amazon and they're great for storing homemade purees or yogurts. We are often eating on the go in the mornings on our way to the gym, so these pouches make Z's breakfast and snacks easily portable and mess-free.


3. Qalo Silicone Wedding Ring

Hubs presented me with a super sweet gift to congratulate me on instructing my first solo BodyPump class. How adorable is this ring? I had mentioned last month that my workouts were scratching up my ring and how I didn't want to make it any worse. So I came home to find this super comfortable and cute Qalo band sitting on the counter. He even got the sizing right! Thank you, my awesome hubby!


4. Custom Recipes at Tea2Go

I'm such a sucker for good tea. Normally I'm not big on sweetened teas but oh my gosh, Tea2Go started introducing new custom recipes, including the one pictured below: "Sail the Ocean Blue". It's a combination of Blue Lagoon herbal tea, pineapple syrup, and blue Curacao. Not only is it gorgeous, it tasted like a tropical vacation. Ugh. SO GOOD.


5. Foil Pack Dinners

There really is nothing easier than throwing a bunch of ingredients into a foil packet in the morning and then tossing it all into an oven to bake into a glorious hot dinner that evening. Lately I've become pretty obsessed with foil pack dinners. Hubs is pretty happy with them too, especially since they can cook in less than 30 minutes. Some easy recipes include:
