spring loves


Spring is my favorite season, I’ve decided. The weather, the idea of a fresh start, nature blooming, the lengthening days, all the outdoor activities happening…it’s fantastic. I only wish it would last longer here before the oppressive heat sets in. Anyway, here are some things I’m loving lately.

Joy the Baker podcast – I’m late to this, because it’s been running for a couple of years now. But when I listen I feel like I’m just chatting with two awesome friends. It’s perfect on my commute. Anyone know of any other podcasts that are similar?

Old Navy vintage tees – I have these in four colors, but I need to get them all. They are cheap, soft, comfortable, cute, and so far have held up really well. I wear one almost every weekend.

Saltwater sandals for toddlers – I am ordering these for Meredith. As much as I love the classic pair, she has to have closed-toed for daycare so these are a cute alternative.

HGTV magazine – my favorite home magazine right now.

White nail polish – So light and bright, and Mineral Fusion is a natural brand.

IKEA artificial plants – In spring I crave greenery, but I haven’t had much luck keeping plants alive. Even my philodendron is dying, and I am faithful to water it every two weeks and keep it in indirect light. I think the IKEA fake plants are pretty realistic looking and quite beautiful. I want to stock up on them and spread them around the house.

What are you loving lately?

    From Nora:

    Lately I’m loving really light reads (aka women’s lit or chick lit), Annie’s Organic Cheddar Bunny Snack Mix, going to the gym to run intervals ( who am I?) and the new super soft pillow cases we got for our bed at Nordstrom Rack.

    From Becca:

    Have you tried just putting a sprig of the philodendron in a jar of water, putting it just about anywhere, and then just refilling the jar when the water gets low? They work well that way too, and you can just keep cutting them off and doing it again as they get bigger. That’s how many of our plants are now since I just forget to water.

    Like the your list. Let me know how the sandals are. Needing to get sandals for our kids soon. Assuming it stops snowing at some point…and warms up!

    I haven’t tried that, but I will! Maybe I can get some use out of my sad little plant yet. :)

    From Sarah:

    Darn, I really need some decent looking fake plants (I can’t keep real plants alive!) but I don’t have an IKEA near me.
