Happy Friday, y’all!! This is such a great Friday — The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and we are going to be in the 80’s today. After a cold March and start to April, this warm-weather loving girl is overjoyed to enjoy a taste of summer this weekend. Jody and I were originally going to go hiking this weekend, but with weather like this, we might just head to the beach!
I wasn’t planning to do another Friday Favorites post until later this month, but I wanted to share some of my favorite products that I have been using this month. These products definitely scream spring, which I’m all about. Without further ado, here’s a look at my favorite things this month.

Favorite New Product: I bought Jody a Fitbit Charge HR for his birthday a couple of weeks ago, and I knew that getting him one would mean I would have to get myself one as well so we can challenge each other to be active, especially as the weather starts to turn. I never liked the thick look of the Charge HR but have been eyeing the Alta HR design for a while for its slimmer look. The Alta HR does almost everything that the Charge HR does, including step tracking, sleep analysis, heart rate, calories burned, distance covered and active minutes with strenuous activity. One of my favorite features is the reminders to move — if I’m able, I try to meet the step challenge whenever it encourages me too! It helps remind me to stay moving, especially when I’ve been working at my desk for hours.

Favorite New Recipe: TJ’s Cauliflower Pizza Crust: If you’ve been following Blissful Moments for a while, you know that Trader Joes is by far my favorite grocery store. I’m always reading other bloggers’ TJ hauls to inspire my shopping list when I’m over there. I had heard great things about all of their pizza crusts, including this Cauliflower Pizza Crust. Jody and I decided to give this healthy alternative to our favorite food a while and we were not disappointed.
Favorite New Top: Bell Sleeve Shirt: Y’all, this shirt is my absolute favorite shirt! Between the bright spring color, to the lace bell-sleeves, to the bows mid-sleeve, this blouse is perfect for all occasions. My go to outfit with this shirt is to pair it with white jeans and my Jack Rogers for a weekend look, or pair it with flats and a pair of cropped ankle pants for a look for work.
Favorite Decor: This may seem a little like common sense, but I have been obsessed with my fresh bouquet of tulips that have served as the centerpiece on my dining room table and coffee table for the past week. Even when the temperatures dipped in the 30’s last week, I admittedly was surprised how fresh and springy our room felt. So easy, simple and budget friendly!
Favorite Music: So I couldn’t narrow this down to just one song because it is honestly the whole playlist that I’m obsessed with! I’m a subscriber of Emily Ley’s Simplified monthly newsletters where she includes a link to each monthly playlist, and I couldn’t have thought of a better combination of songs this month. It includes country, pop, and covers of different songs that will make for a happy April!
