It’s Friday again!  Hooray.  We have a special weekend on the horizon with it being Mother’s Day!  I don’t think we have anything planned – or actually, I hope Aiden has a good night’s sleep planned.

Anyways, here is this week’s Top Five Friday Favorites:

How to Foam Roll.  I have been back in the swing of things with running, which always makes different muscles feel tight and sore.  Foam rolling works wonders and feels oh so good – well actually, it’s that hurts so good type of feeling, but it’s a quick deep tissue massage.  I suggest that everyone does it!  David and I bought the Trigger Point Grid Roller a few years ago and absolutely love it.  It does get warped or softer like some of the other ones.  It’s definitely worth the extra $$.

Gluten-Free Lemon Bars in a Jar.  I love lemon bars and anyway to make them gluten-free, I’m in.  This recipe calls for butter, but you can easily sub in the Earth Balance buttery spread or baking bars to make them dairy-free too.

Hanky Panky Signature Lace Racerback Bralette.  I think this bra is so cute and it says that it’s actually full coverage.  I find that I have several racerback tanks for the summer, but there’s always a bra strap showing unless you wear a strapless bra, but those are ultra uncomfortable in my opinion.  If I ever wean Aiden from breastfeeding, maybe I’ll purchase this!  Since I’ve been wearing nursing bras for over a year, I can’t fathom the idea of wearing underwire again…

Aiden Sleeping Through the Night!  On Wednesday night, Aiden slept from 7:30 pm – 5:00 am, nursed and then went back to bed until 7:45 am.  This is a record for us over here.  He’s only done this one other time in his life and that was at least a month ago.  I had decided that I needed to visit a sleep consultant again and figure out what to do since David wasn’t able to calm him down anymore.  He must have knew I was plotting this because he randomly did it on his own.  I am not holding my breath that he’ll do it tonight – only time will tell.

Athleta Twister Bikini.  My mom got this for me for Mother’s Day because I was telling her that all my bikini tops are not going to work anymore with Aiden for multiple reasons.  First, he is constantly tugging on my top, so I don’t think a string bikini is good for this and secondly, I just feel like I need more coverage now than I did pre-baby.  I really like this option!

There you have it.  I hope that everyone has a good Mother’s Day weekend – treat your mother nice!

Questions:

What are you doing for your mother this weekend?

Do you foam roll?

Bets on if Aiden sleeps through the night again?  I’m not holding my breath, but at least I know he can do it!

    Girl, it is not a fun transition back to underwire! So uncomfy. I still wear my nursing bras at home, because just so much more pleasant. I’ve seen similar style bras but I dont think it would be enough support for my size…sadly. I thought they’d go back to prebaby size, but no. annoying.

    I love lemon bars!
