It’s Friday!  It’s been a crazy but good week for Blake and I, and even though it’s crazy I feel like it’s the calm before the storm!  We are laughing as we watch our days and weekend book out on our calendar for the rest of the spring and summer, so I’m using this weekend to prepare – and enjoy our new puppy!

Yep, puppy.  We’ve officially had our sweet puppy Lo for a week.  She was an amazing gift from a friend who somehow knew I needed her, and I love her so much already!  More to come on that, but since this post is supposed to tell you about “What I’m Into This Week,” I’m really into FILLYDOG…

FILLYDOG. When we knew Lo was coming, the first thing I did was look for a bed.  I had seriously no idea how hard it would be to find a cute one!  Since it’s something that’s going to be out all the time, from and center in our home, I wanted it to look good.  (Seriously, I dare you to try right now to find a cute dog bed online – NOT EASY.)  FINALLY I ended up at FILLYDOG and fell in love.  The hardest part was choosing which one!  The beds are really well made, high-quality fabric that’s so far withstanding Lo’s crazy puppy chewing amazingly ;). You’ll have to check out their shop for the different designs – I picked the Pink Geometric Square Dog Bed, but I’m already trying to pick which one I’ll buy next.  They also have the cutest collars (another rare find in dog world!)  That being said, I contacted FILLYDOG and got a discount code for us all to use – 20% off through the end of March!  Just enter “palmstopines” when you’re checking out!Frenchie | FillyDog Bed | Palms to PinesFrenchie | FillyDog Bed | Palms to Pines

Favorite Books this Week.  Guys, I had a rough start to the year.  I wasn’t feeling healthy, I was tired all of the time, and I was so unmotivated to do anything about it.  I’m FINALLY taking control, mainly through the food/fuel I’m putting in my body, and it feels amazing.  I started another round of Whole30, and I’m getting out and being more active (partly thanks to this puppy!).  As a result, these are three books that I’m SUPER into this week, and I think literally every girl should read them:

Bachelor Finale, JoJo’s dress on After the Final Rose.  If you watched the Bachelor this season, you know that JoJo looked SMOKIN’ in the dress she wore for After the Final Rose.  You also know that Lauren won, and JoJo is the next bachelorette (I was totally wrong, and now I owe my Grandma $2 from losing a bet.)  Anyways, she wore the ultimate LDB!  I hunted it down, but if you want it get it fast cause it’s almost sold out everywhere!

10 Types of Friends.  Lately, Blake and I have been talking a lot about the dynamics of making friends as you get older and married.  It’s a whole different ball game, and definitely a lot harder!  And I always find myself going back to the friends I’ve hard forever.  Which is why I loved this article so much, and it’s both funny and true!

Instagram’s New Algorithm. Have you guys seen people freaking out about this?  If you haven’t heard, you can read about it in the WSJ here.  I wasn’t sure how to feel, so of course I text my Social media expert friend (and amazing blogger), Corrine of Mint Arrow.  I absolutely LOVED her response to me, which she sums up in a blog post here.   And while you’re there, subscribe to her blog because you’ll love her posts AND they’ll save you lots of money :).  And on that note, all you have to do to keep someone in your Instagram feed is make sure like and/or comment on their photos when you do see them!  Easy, right?

Happy, happy Friday to you all!
