5 Things I’m Loving This Week

5 Things I'm Loving This Week

So many, many of you said you loved the 5 Things I’m Loving This Week Feature from last week. And I loved how you shared your things that you’re loving, too.

Here’s this week’s installment of my 5 things I’ve been loving this past week:

1. Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chips — I love me some peanut butter and chocolate chips on a spoon. Or, if I’m being completely honest, sometimes straight from the jar and bag. Anyone else do this, too? It’s one of my favorite quick snacks or pick-me-ups!

{The Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips or the Lily’s Chocolate Chips are my favorite “healthy” brands. Both are very expensive, so they are only an occasionally-purchased treat using Amazon gift cards earned through Swagbucks.}

2. The Make Over Your Mornings Site — It is so incredibly rewarding to see months and months of hard work, brainstorming, tweaking, and editing come together and to be just two days away from the biggest product launch we’ve ever had on my site.

Today, I spent a number of hours finalizing things and getting the Make Over Your Mornings site almost all finished (no, I didn’t touch the design part of it, I just wanted to make quite a few edits and tweaks — and try not to break anything in the process! :)

You can head over here for a sneak peek of it. And then don’t forget to set your alarms or reminders to get in on the crazy low sale prices (hello, $5!) we’re offering for the launch on Tuesday for those who are fast enough to scoop them up! Read all about the sale prices and times here.

3. Becoming a Sports Mom — At Silas’ request, I wore my Game Day tee from Cents of Style (it’s no longer available on their site that I could find) for his baseball game today. And it made me realize something: much to my surprise, I think I may be turning into a full-fledged sports mom.

I never would have pictured myself as such, but I’m completely loving the character and life skills our kids are developing as a result of being involved in sports that I can’t help myself. It’s amazing how much your children’s interests and passions change and impact you as a parent!

4. Turquoise Jeans — Also notice in the above picture that I have on turquoise jeans, which is definitely stepping out of my “fashion comfort zone”. I’ve long wanted to try to find a pair that fit me well, but it felt like it was a hopeless search and I begin to think I should just stick with regular denim.

However, I found a deal online on these on RueLaLa and took a chance and bought them using credit I’d earned months ago. I’m so glad I did, because I love them… they are so bright and cheery and comfy and fit me perfectly. Plus, I love that they can be dressed up or down.

5. Rain — It’s rained a lot this week and I’ve loved it as it’s been so refreshing and peaceful. (I kind of feel badly being happy for the rain, though, when so many areas are experiencing flooding as a result.)

It rained at Silas’ baseball game today, so while everyone else huddled under shelter, the girls had a dance party. I love how these girls inspire me to embrace and delight in the everyday moments!
