High Fives

Happy Friday everyone!  I'm giving out some high fives today to some awesome products and blog ideas!

*Some products highlighted products may contain affiliate links. 

I don't watch The Bachelor (or Bachelorette) anymore, but I was an addict back in the day. I absolutely love this "Blogging the Bach" link up that Aubrey has going on over at Dreaming of Someday.  If you are a fan of the show, check this out! Sheer brilliance!

Zach and I are trying to embrace a cleaner and more wholesome diet. We were doing really well and then when I got pregnant we stopped. We've been working our way back. I made this recipe for "spaghetti" and meatballs the other night--our meal was Whole 30 approved (dairy, sugar, soy, wheat, and legume free!) and it was delicious. Zach usually tolerates my healthy experiments, but he actually asked me to make this meal once a week. It's that good. I don't like spaghetti squash, so I subbed it for spiralized zucchini instead.  

Which brings me to this spiralizer. It is a staple for every home. I am a zucchini enthusiast--no joke. I could eat it for every meal. Zach is not such a zucchini fan, but he tolerates our summer long fest. He loved the taste and texture of the "noodles" I made. 

Deidre has a Fashion Fits Everyone series that celebrates confidence no matter your size or shape. It encourages women to embrace their bodies and dress them well. I seriously love this series and think that we need more positive projects like this in the world! 

I bought this memory book when JaiseAnn was two months old. I love it. I jot down something memorable every night when she goes to bed. I can't wait to read excerpts to her when she's older at bedtime. I think she'll eat it up and I'll probably cry. At under $10 it makes the perfect addition to a shower gift. 

If you have or know of products or blog posts that you think should be given a "High Five,"  I'd love to hear about it. Please send me an email at [email protected]

    We have so much zucchini in our garden and I'm not a big fan either - but Chris LOVES it. Right now, I'm only a big fan of zucchini "fries" but I'm seriously considering getting that spiraler just for this "pasta"! Thanks for the heads up :)

    I love how much you can grow with just one plant--since I could eat it for every meal probably. The pasta is really good, I highly recommend it. Have you tried making boats? Zach likes those, too. You cut a zucchini in half, scrape out the insides, mix the insides with ground beef/ground turkey/chicken sausage, or whatever you'd like, spaghetti sauce, spices, and cheese and fill it back up and bake it. So good, but of course I would think so. :)
