Friday Five Favorites: Cherry Blossoms in Philadelphia, Simplicity Parenting, Kids Jujutsu, Love City Brewing + More!

Hello and Happy Friday!

I’m sitting here today from the land of CHERRY BLOSSOMS! I can’t believe they are already here, I wasn’t expecting them and it seems like they snuck up on me – but I’m not mad about it.

I’m crossing my fingers and my toes that the rain this weekend doesn’t wash them away before people can really enjoy them, they are always truly spectacular.

Ok, let’s get into it, this weeks Friday Five Favorites, check them out and let me know what you think!

1- The first thing I’m digging this week, and it should come with no surprise based on the previous paragraph are the beautiful BLOSSOMS! Spring is here and I want to enjoy it !

For a little fun, here are a few throwback posts from previous cherry blossom seasons in Philadelphia and DC:

2013 – Cherry Blossom 5k

2014 – Brooks + Blossoms

2015 – 18 weeks Pregnant + Cherry Blossoms with Brooks

2017 – Cherry Blossom Mom + Babes Sneak Peek

For #2 I have to share on the blog this book I’ve been gushing about on social media all week long. I’ve posted it in my Amazon Store – under Book Club – and it’s been such a delight and inspiration to read. I can’t say enough good things about it – for any moms and dads out there looking to calm + slow things a bit, this is fantastic!

#3 – Jujutsu! The boys started what I like to call – Ninja Training Camp – this week, and they couldn’t love anything more! They love to wrestle {and fight} all day long, so when I heard about this amazing neighborhood class – that gives you your first 3 classes FREE – I knew we had to try it!

Jujutsu is fighting WITH NO HITTING OR KICKING!

So basically if you have very busy, active, energetic little boys, this is probably the best thing for them! They do conditioning and practice moves, their coach keeps everyone in check. It’s a dream. Who else has kiddos doing jujitsu?! I’d love to know what you think!

#4 – With beautiful Spring weather, comes amazing Spring fashion. It only *just* started warming up, but I don’t mind if it doesn’t happen quickly – jeans, a t-shirt and maybe a light layer is my favorite way to dress. Ever.

Around 60* is the perfect temperature. Not too hot, not too cold, juuuuust right!

So I was pretty excited when I had to opportunity to take this new Amazon Find Blazer out for a roll. I love this red color – it will be awesome to style in the Fall as well.

It comes in a few other colors and its just a great closet staple to have for any season! Only $26 – it’s a great find.

And finally #5 – if you are a local Philly friend I have to add to your MUST VISIT list – Love City Brewing! The brews were fantastic and more importantly the space is incredible. It’s massive! Great for get togethers or if you’ve got kiddos that want to run around while you socialize.

#6 – Because sometimes it’s really hard to ONLY pick Five Favorites – As a little BONUS many of you know, I am a huge fan, lover and seller of Stella & Dot. Been doing it a long time and I love it so much. We just launched our new Spring + Summer collection and it’s BEYOND! Here’s a look at some of my favorites – Check out the full collection here and let me know what you think!

So there you have it folks! It’s Friday and we’ve got a busy weekend coming up! I hope you have a great + fun filled few days as well! I’d love to hear anything you are currently loving – please share!

And enjoy the cherry blossoms if you’ve got any in your area!
