Lessons On My 40th Birthday

Me and the Fam! I have news. A few weeks ago I celebrated my 40th birthday. It was my second COVID/lockdown birthday and I wasn't even sad about it. I'm not a huge birthday bash kind of girl, so not having to break the news to everyone that there would be no crazy party felt sooooooo good.  I've thought a lot about this post. About turning 40. What do I want to share here to help document this milestone birthday? When my kids look back and read this online journal so to speak, what do I want them to know about what I was thinking on May 11, 2021? And here's what I came up with: On celebrating my special day: COVID birthdays aren't so bad as an adult. Sure they suck shit for kids (can't have a party, can't see their family and friends, hardly any presents because said parties are a no-no).

Friday Five's: Fashion, Sales, Workouts and Serious Yummy Eats

Welcome to Currently Jen's Friday Five's! Here's what I'm crushing on this week...

1. Old Navy Canada has been having a massive clearance sale and I'm loving these Jersey Swing Dresses. I have about 7 of them already - but my black one (duh) and this navy polka dot one are my favourites. Click here to check out the collection.


2. Speaking of sale's, Children's Place Canada is having a crazy sale too. Graphic tees are on sale, $3.99 and up. Currently in my shopping car: this for my daughter, and this for my son.

3. Have you all heard of Blogilates? I've been following Casey for YEARS but have always been intimidated by her workouts. But since we are on quarantine still, and I really need to move my tush, I thought I should try her 14-Day Quarantine Workout Plan. By the looks of day one "Quarantine Cardio" I already knew I wouldn't be able to feel my legs the following day. But to find out how I actually did with this workout, you'll have to tune back in here in two weeks!


4. Ummm I guess I can't really workout and not eat healthy too right? Otherwise what's the point. So, I'm going to attempt to make these 5-ingredient bagels by Skinnytaste. There are variations for gluten-free versions so I can't wait to test it out.


5. This baked potato dinner board from the Reluctant Entertainer. So good. I will have to do this the next time I have family or friends over.
