the top 3 reasons i love my apple watch

February 22, 2016

For my birthday, David got me an Apple watch. Up until a couple of weeks before that, I hadn’t given them a second thought. Actually, if I thought about them at all it might have been along the lines of, “those are silly.” But then I saw someone at work wearing one, and it looked nice. So I did some research, and decided it would be a neat thing to have. I’ve only had it for a couple of weeks so I’m sure I’m not even using it to its full potential, but so far, it’s pretty great. I wanted to share the reasons I love it so far, in case you’re interested! I’m LESS connected to my phone. This…

using frugal real food meal plans

April 22, 2015

The other day I found an old journal of mine from 2010. In it, I documented some goals that were more like ideals of how I want to be living. Here is what I wrote for the “food” category: Looking back, this was also right after I read the book¬†Animal, Vegetable, Miracle¬†by Barbara Kingsolver. I would say that this is the time my “real food” journey began. My real food journey Since then I’ve had a lot of ups and downs with the process. Having kids to feed was a big incentive to do better. Completing whole30 was a huge step. Nowadays we have some health issues in our family – nothing huge, and nothing specific like food allergies –…

But in the end I couldn’t resist purchasing it, and today I want to give you the lowdown on what it’s actually like and ideas for using it. Let’s go screen by screen to see what it does! When you first open the app, you have the choice to watch an intro video or not. Later, the video doesn’t open but you can find…

recent things i love

The Wet Brush – I don’t like to condition my hair more than once a week, but that means that any time I shower in between conditionings my hair is kind of a beast to brush through when it’s wet. I used to skip showers just so that I wouldn’t have to deal with it. (Now I just skip them because…eh. Don’t need a good reason.) This brush really does make it a lot easier. It doesn’t get the tangles out on the first pass through or anything, but it doesn’t make me want to hack off my hair or arm, either. Aden + Anais muslin blankets – Everyone says these are the best so I finally shelled out for…

erin condren planner review

November 13, 2013

As this year winds down to a close (whaaat) you might be thinking about how you’re going to do your planning for next year, at least if you’re an organizational and list nerd like me. This year I purchased an Erin Condren weekly planner because I won a gift card in a giveaway. Even though I do most of my planning digitally (and am very much entrenched in my system) I was curious about the hype and wanted to see if I could adapt it to my lifestyle. These planners are very popular so you might know what they’re like already, but in case you don’t: they are large, colorful, personalized, detailed, and include extras like stickers and labels. There…
