Five on Friday

Happy Friday everyone! I’m excited to see one of C’s cousins get married this weekend, and it’s sure to be a beautiful day. But until then, here are some of the stories I’ve enjoyed this week:

1. “Body Image” by Life by Nadine Lynn


This is such a powerful post by one of my favorite bloggers. She’s truly trying to embrace all that is great about her so that she can encourage her daughter to have a positive body image. I’m going to do everything that I can to follow this model once my little girl joins this world.

2. “Listening Lately” by In Residence


Honestly, I have a hard time listening to music on the radio these days. I feel like every time I turn on the radio, “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran is on every dang station. So most of the time, I turn to podcasts, and I can’t thank Anne enough for these suggestions!

#3–“All About Our Little Viking–Part II” by Unlocking Kiki


Um okay, let’s talk about how much I want to be pregnant in Iceland right now. Their maternity leave is AMAZING, as is their medical care. I feel like I learned so much from Kaelene’s post. Trust me, if you’re pregnant or have been,  you’ll be wanting to hop a plane to Iceland, too!

#4–“National Infertility Awareness Week” from Marathons and Dog Tags


I had no idea that the last week of April was National Infertility Awareness Week, and so I was so thankful that Jen brought it to my attention with this post. Being a woman who had to take extra measures in order to become pregnant, I feel a camaraderie with the 1 in 8 women who struggle with infertility. I’m so lucky to live in a world with more options for having a baby, and because of it, our little girl will be here this fall!

#5–Your turn!

What’s been your favorite post lately?? Fill me in!

  1. I so appreciate you sharing my post and i want you to know how awesome you are!!!! 🙂 You are going to be an incredible mother, I am so proud to be a part of such a courageous and amazing group of people who have gone through this journey.

  2. Thanks so much for sharing my post! Our maternity leave and health care here leaves so much to be desired. While my company was horrible about maternity leave (they offer nothing other than holding your job) I am thankful that my boss is understanding and has let me work from home a lot. Hope you enjoy the wedding!
