Happy Friday! It's the very last one of May - can you believe it?! I've been looking forward to this weekend for a while now because we are heading back to Michigan to look at HOUSES! Craziness. We've gotten pre-approved for a mortgage, found a realtor and have at least 6 houses lined up to look at on Saturday. I'm so excited to get the house hunting process started! Make sure to follow along with us this weekend on Instagram :)
+ Morning Yoga
I found this quick morning yoga sequence on Pinterest and I've actually been sticking with it! It feels great to start off my day stretching out and working my core instead of just moving from my bed to the couch. I like that it's quick and easy - this takes me about 15 minutes tops!
+ Essie Marshmallow
I've officially decided on my summer 2014 nail polish. Oh, you don't have a nail polish designated for each season? Haha I tend to find one I love each season, especially in the summer, and use it nonstop. 2013 was the summer of Essie's Ballet Slippers and this year the winner is Marshmallow. I love the soft, clean white - I swear it also makes your hands look tanner!
I attempted to make gnocchi last night and it turned out fabulously! I bought a package of it way back in the fall but wasn't sure how to use it until Carly shared a recipe that sounded too good not to try - Crispy Gnocchi with Zucchini, Sweet Corn and Basil. We substituted summer squash for the corn and it was oh so good AND easy. We will definitely be having this again soon!
+ Floral Sweater
Okay, one last recent Forever 21 find. How cute is this floral sweater? I picked it up for dirt cheap and love that I can wear it to both work with a nice necklace and black pants or casually with jeans or denim shorts. I'm all about clothes that are multi-purpose!
+ Sex Trafficking
Nina recently reached out to us about helping to spread awareness of sex trafficking. I had been contemplating writing a post about it as she suggested but every time I tried, the words came up short. This is a real, serious problem and I don't think I could do it justice so I'm going to share the post Nina wrote. Please, please, please take a moment to read this and maybe even find it in your heart to make a donation.
12 = the average age of a slave today
27,000,000 = the number of slaves around the world
1-2% = the percentage of slaves rescued

Have a wonderful weekend! :)
