Friday Faves

Happy March! We've been getting in the Easter spirit with all things bunny - including our pancakes! These were a hit - and super easy to make!

If you're looking for a spring dessert, look no further than my Mint Chocolate Treasures that I posted about earlier this week! The recipe makes 24, and they're already gone 🙈

Who uses their Apple watch to track their fitness classes? 🙋 

I love to check on heart rate and calories, and to compare classes. My PSA for the week - if you are using your tracker when you might be bumping your watch, there is a way to lock it so it stays only on the tracker. Simply swipe the screen after you start the tracker and you'll see this:

Press the blue water droplet and it will lock. Why is this important? Well, in Pure Barre Empower, you have wrist weights that wrap around your watch. With all the moving, they rub the watch screen making it do random things like almost make an Emergency call. Twice. Imagine a fire truck showing up and me having to say "No worries, just working out!" So anyway, the lock option has put an end to my constant worrying and checking my watch during class. The only way to unlock it is to manually turn the dial on the side. I love having peace of mind now that it will stay tracking (it does still allow phone calls and text messages to pop up, the other reason I like to have it on me while I'm working out when P is at school).

I'm totally a paper and pen gal - the calendar on my iPhone is pretty much empty, but my paper planner is used every single day. My mom turned me onto these Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Pens at Christmas, and I'm hooked (I'm already on my second set because I love them that much). Try them - I promise you won't want to use any other pens!

Confession - we still have a Christmas doormat out on our side entry. Shocking, I know. I'm hiding under a chair right now so I can't feel your judgement. Luckily I came across this doormat from Amazon this week and clicked the "buy it now" so come this weekend we should finally be without shame, ha!

Cheers to the weekend!
