grove collaborative love & a free mrs. meyers cleaning kit!

April 26, 2016

Hi friends! I’m hoping to pop in later this week with an update on what I’ve been doing while I haven’t been blogging (spoiler: it includes a lot of rain and a lot of reading), but today I wanted to share something I have been loving over the past year because there is an awesome deal this week. If you haven’t heard of Grove Collaborative (formerly ePantry) you need to get over there right now and check it out. Basically, they provide all-natural, non-toxic household, cleaning, & personal care supplies cheaper than pretty much anywhere. And this week they have put together this Mrs. Meyer’s Everyday Luxury Set which you can get for FREE. Mrs. Meyers is one of my favorite…

non-candy easter basket ideas

March 7, 2016

Did you know that Lent is already halfway over? My spending freeze is going pretty well (only a few small infractions, mostly kid-related) and my new daily practice of reading the Bible every day has been wonderful, thanks to an app with a reading plan + devotional that I love. Currently, I’m not sure how I’m going to handle Easter with my kiddos. I’m vacillating between staying strict on the spending freeze to include not making extra purchases for them, and another of my goals for this year which is to celebrate more holidays at home, especially relating to the church calendar. Of course we do celebrate Easter already – we go to church and do an egg hunt there…

things i love lately

March 2, 2016

Before I went on my spending freeze for Lent, I acquired a few new things that I’m really loving, so today I want to share those with you, if you’re curious! Banana Republic Margeaux sunglasses – I had a gift card to BR but none of the clothes were fitting me right. On a whim I tried on these sunglasses and they fit me perfectly. I have a hard time finding sunglasses that aren’t too tight or too loose, and that don’t leave marks on my nose. These feel great and look classic. Threshold percale sheet set – I am so glad I discovered percale sheets. They are crisp and cool (a big deal if you live in Houston) but…

things i love lately

January 26, 2016

Hi friends! Today I wanted to pop in with something fun, just share a few of the things I’m loving lately. Let’s get to it! Aerosoles Landlock Chukka Boots – I have been on the lookout for casual booties for quite awhile now, but it’s tough for me since I have wide feet. My friend Maggie ordered these and let me try them on – lucky for me we wear the same size – and they are SO comfortable. The soft suede makes them great for wide feet, too. I immediately ordered some in black but went back to get the this taupe color as well! Madre Beads – I’m a brand ambassador for this awesome mama-run small business, so…

things i love right now

July 29, 2015

Lately I haven’t had a whole lot of time to write, but I wanted to pop in and share some things that I’m currently loving. It’s always good to focus on the good stuff, no matter how big or little, right? 1. Bar earrings I got a pair of these handmade silver bar earrings and I’ve been wearing them every day for months. They are modern and understated and classy and make me feel just a little bit cool. She is currently on summer break but I bet they’ll be back in the fall! Also find some similar options here and here. 2. Voxer This is a life-changing app for me. It’s a hybrid of voicemail, walkie-talkie, and messaging, and…
