I had another eventful week over here. We went strawberry picking, made some jam, and took a trip to the circus. I’ve also been prepping for our trip to Illinois next week. If you have any tips for flying with toddlers throw them my way. Today, I have some holds at the library to pick up and then a trip to Target because that’s how we do Fridays around here. Anyway, here are some of my favorites from the week.
Intertwined By Bella
This is an everyday favorite of mine. I got this silk quartz necklace a from Intertwined by Bella a few months ago, and I pretty much wear it every day. Intertwined by Bella is a shop based in Tacoma, WA and Bella is the sweetest person. She puts so much care into the jewelry and will gladly replace something if it breaks. You can check out her Etsy shop, here, and find her on Instagram, here.
Barnes and Noble
This is probably a given, but Barnes and Noble is one of my favorite places on Earth. It’s up there with Disney World. We went to B&N after strawberry picking on Saturday, and the girls went crazy. I usually do my book shopping alone and I’m notorious for putting books on hold at the library, so they were in book heaven. It was actually pretty stressful because they were tired, hungry, and excited all at once so I basically had no control over them, but it was fun too. Needless to say, I was a pretty proud mama at their enthusiasm over books, even if I was sweating from chasing them down and whisper scolding to put those books back.
Hu Kitchen sent me some of their chocolates to try out and review a few months back and I have been hooked since. It is dark chocolate the is organic, paleo, and vegan-friendly. The chocolate tastes amazing and doesn’t have in of the crap that is harmful to your body. Plus, I love the company’s philosophy.
” The goal isn’t to just get by. The goal is to live actively, age gracefully, and flourish. We are inspired by quality food’s ability to heal versus poor quality food’s guaranteed to hinder. We started Hu to help people get back to eating, living, and thriving like humans.”
This Aloe Plant
As much as I want to be a plant person, I often kill any houseplants I take in, except for this aloe. This plant was tiny little guy when I first got it, but it is growing like crazy. I’ve already re-potted it once and will probably have to do it again here pretty soon.
Have you checked out my summer reading list? I’m picking up The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo from the library today and I’m hoping to get it done before we hop on the plane next week. I’ve already got three books from my list packed in my suitcase because I would rather have too many than too few.
