#whatrobinfavors – June top five

Another month has flown by and I cannot believe it. As of yesterday, Poppy is TEN MONTHS old. You better believe I’m already planning her first birthday party because the closer it gets the more my brain becomes total mush. My sweet little gal is growing up!

A new month means I have a new top five for my monthly series. I’m thinking of calling it #whatrobinfavors, thoughts? Shoutout to everyone who suggested names for this series, they were all so creative but this one stuck out to me most.

Food: Cinnamon Snickerdoodle Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies, do I even need to explain? I’ll be honest, I was SO bummed when I pulled these bad boys out of the oven. They were flatter than flat and I didn’t think they’d be worth tasting. Joel begged to differ and said they looked good to him so I let them cool to at least take one bite. At first bite my mouth was salivating and my tastebuds went straight to a bakery cookie I’ve had in the past. Lesson learned: don’t judge a cookie by it’s cover. Click here for the recipe!

Drink:  If you’ve been following me over on the gram then you know I’m hooked on my cold brew chagaccino. I had my first chagaccino at Alfred last month in LA and was really sad to know I couldn’t go to Alfred everyday to get one. After a couple test recipes I finally got it right! I might be biased but I think my Chagacchino is better than Alfred’s.😊

Exercise: When we left LA last year I was really bummed to be moving away from FlyWheel. I had been spinning at FlyWheel for the last four years and couldn’t imagine enjoying spin as much anywhere else. That is until I took a RushCycle class. I had heard great things about the class and all the instructors so I thought, “why not?!”. It’s free for your first ride so I wasn’t losing anything taking one class. Five minutes into the class I knew this was my new FlyWheel. RushCycle has a tech pack so you know your gear and speed, the ambiance during class is so fun with the blacklight feature, and the instructor was killing it! The workout was challenging but not too hard where you weren’t able to keep up. Anyone at any fitness level can step into RushCycle feeling confident that they will have a good workout. I now go four times a month and all the instructors I’ve taken are great. I highly recommend taking a RushCycle class at least once!

Item to wear: My postpartum body has been all over the place. A month postpartum I had lost a lot of my pregnancy weight (thank you breastfeeding!) but my hips had expanded a solid 2 inches from giving brith. I’ve been avoiding purchasing new jeans up until this last month. It felt so good to get rid of the jeans and jean shorts I’ve been holding onto because I really don’t see my hips going back anytime soon. If they ever do I’ll deal with that when the time comes, but I bought new Levi’s 501 high rise shorts last week! It feels SO nice to wear jean shorts that fit. If you’re waiting for the time to purchase new jeans/jean shorts, the time is now! Go to an outlet store or utilize apps like Poshmark. I’ve purchased three pairs of Madewell jeans for less than half the price on Poshmark and sold a lot of my clothes there too. You can shop my closet here!

A favorite of Pop’s: Bath time with Poppy is becoming so sweet as she grows but now that she’s growing her sink baths aren’t possible anymore. Joel did some googling and found the PRIMO EuroBath. It fits right in the tub and has a little section for 0-6 months and another section for 6-24 months. People have asked how we store if and we just leave it in our second bathroom tub. Poppy loves being able to sit up and play with her farm animal bath toys. She can stop growing now, k thanks.

These are a few of my favorite things. *New monthly series!*

Hi friends! I’ve been wanting to start this new series where I share five of my favorite things in the beginning of each month but I blinked and it has been five months into the new year already.  🤯 Starting now because BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, am I right? Each month I’ll share five things: food, drink, exercise, item to wear, and of course a favorite of Pop’s. Continue reading because I cannot live without any of these right now!

Food- This might not come as a surprise but the NEW Birthday Cake Perfect Bar. Like what?! I’ve been obsessed with Perfect Bars since 2012 and they keep getting better and better. Packed with 20 superfoods and taste like birthday cake cookie dough. Nuff said.

Drink- Not sure if you look forward to my cold brew pours as much as I do each morning but my new favorite concoction is a dirty chai cold brew. Made with Majka’s new Vanilla Chai lactation booster, Stumptown coffee turned into cold brew with my Ninja Hot & Cold Brew maker, Ripple unsweetened vanilla, and Four Sigmatic lions mane. Blend on high for 45 seconds and pour over ice while listening to some vibey tunes.

Exercise- Want to make your abs cry? Then I suggest doing TRX pikes. TRX pikes help you build a strong core by challenging your balance and stability, along with your abdominal muscles. You can adjust the intensity of the exercise by how big your pike is. This exercise also works your upper body for things like handstands, which I have never done. Maybe I’ll work on that next!

Item of clothing- My Made by Mary Birth Flower necklace. This one is my most favorite out of the bunch. When I saw Made by Mary announce that they were launching Birth Flower necklaces I thought that would be cute to get for Poppy’s birthday month (August). When I saw that August’s birth flower was a Poppy I actually lost my cool and knew I had to have it! I ordered mine first thing the morning of launch day and counted the days until it arrived. I never take it off!

Poppy item-  There is nothing cuter than watching Poppy eat. Seriously, NOTHING. I did an Instagram Live last week and I think we could have all sat there in silence while Poppy ate her sweet potato pure. Her cheeks chomping on food, dead. But since Poppy is only eating more and more solid food we decided that her Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair had to be her most favorite item right now. It not only looks cool but she can use it until she’s three years old! The chair grows as she grows and that’s a game changer for us.
