Finally Friday.

It’s Friday!! And, it’s been just under two years since I did a finally friday post. Whhaaaaaat?!? How in the world has it been that long? When I dug back through my past posts I was certain that it would have only been a year, but nope, it’s been two. Crazy!

This was my last full week-ish of maternity leave and I spent it feeling anxious about the dreaded return to work. We have a pretty low-key weekend planned and I’m going to do my best to enjoy every last second that I have with my little lady before I don’t get to see her every second of every day.

Here are a few of my favorite finds from around the web – some new, some not so new:

I’m still just the teensiest bit obsessed with pregnancy, birth and babies — I’m not sure this obsession will ever end… which is why I DEVOURED this article. Two moms, two pregnancies, two babies at the same time. And, I thought one was hard. Holy Smokes!

I’m going to be 30 this year. In my mind that’s an age where you have your shit together… it’s an age where you’re really a grownup and not just pretending to be one. Turns out, I don’t feel like I’m about to be 30 and I certainly don’t feel like a grown up. Maybe these 50 healthy habits for women will help me get it together? I already do #’s 27 and 32, but need to be better at 45 and 48.

Little E has food allergies so I’ve been off a number of foods since before Christmas (that’s right, I had to forgo all the holiday deliciousness and you better believe that I cried about it more than once. Let’s blame it on postpartum hormones and not my overindulgent love of rum cake, mmmk?). In my efforts to find delicious foods that fit into my limitations, I came across this dark chocolate coconut oil fudge recipe. It looks delicious, which means I’m going to have to make it ASAP.

Since dairy is one of the food categories I’ve been avoiding, real pizza is right at the top of the list of foods I’m craving. Do you think this adorable sweatshirt would suffice until I can be reunited with a cheesy slice of pepperoni?

I happen to be someone who really, REALLY enjoys free stuff. I especially enjoy it when it is quality free stuff. Are you a free stuff lover too? If so, this list of 12 of the best free products on the internet will make your little heart flutter with joy.

I love food. In college, long before the food network was as popular as it is today, I would watch it for hours and hours on end. Maybe, just maybe, that’s why this article appealed to me so much. I first read about this man’s encounter with Jacques Pépin last summer and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since.

That’s a wrap! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
