Happy Friday everyone! Popping in to share some of my favorite things. Some of these I've blogged about before. Some of them are new loves. Either way, they are some of the little things that make me happy each day.
I know I just blogged about my lovely little card/receipt organizer but I am loving it so much I had to include it in my favorites list. I bought it at Staples - Martha Stewart's office supplies (along with the fun labels I used in my organized craft cupboard post). I can't wait to go back and get more of her office supplies!
Bran Chex. Been eating them for breakfast for years. A quick, healthy breakfast that tastes good and keeps me full until lunch. Kenny orders them from Amazon for me (I can't find them anywhere around here!) so they are delivered to our doorstep in this huge box. You would think a box like this would last forever, but the kids love them too so we go through this baby pretty fast. My dad loves them too so for his birthday one year we set up a monthly delivery from Amazon to his doorstep. He loved it. Calls it the gift that keeps on giving. :)
Favorite snack. I LOVE sugar snap peas. I also love that they come already washed and ready to eat. I take them with me in the car a lot when I'm hungry and running kids around.
The Wheels on the Bus out there, but this one with movable parts is the best. Hands down.
Every page has fun arrows to pull that move the characters all around. A friends gave me this book when I was pregnant with Ellie. Ellie LOVED it and we read it so much that by the time Addison came around I had to get a new one. Same thing with Addison. We read it so much (and she played with it so much) that we had to get a new one by the time Kole came around. So this is our third copy! And what do you know - it's Kole's all time favorite book. We have been reading it every night for almost a year! I throw in other books during our reading time, but Kole insists on this one every night. If you have a toddler (or need a good gift for someone who does!) I'm telling you - this book is it.
You can order it here and thank me later. Unless reading it so much drives you crazy and you decide not to thank me after all. :) (**side note - if you do get this book I'd recommend keeping it up high away from toddler hands and only take it down when you are going to look at it together. That way the book doesn't get destroyed and it's a special treat to read together.)
Neutrogena sunless tan lotion. Love this stuff! It's my go to in the summer time. You all know I've been
cursed blessed with incredibly fair skin. I gave up my "try to tan and burn myself" days long ago and am now super careful about protecting my skin from the sun. The only problem is that I live in an area where shorts work year round and sunscreen is always essential. So I rub or spray a little of this on my legs every few days and wa-la! My legs no longer blind people. :) (I prefer the lotion over the spray because the tan looks more even. I buy it at Target or you can order it here).
Natural Ice chap stick (cherry). Love this stuff. I always have an abundance of it because my cute mom buys it for me. Every time I see her she slips a few packages in my purse. :)
It's called "Painterly Paint Pot" by MAC. It's like foundation for your eye lids and I LOVE it! Basically you put it on before you put on your eye make-up and it makes it so that your eye shadow never creases. My eye shadow looks as good at 5:00 in the evening as it did when I put it on in the morning. Which is awesome, because time to touch up my make-up doesn't exist these days!
I love my navigation system so much and would be lost without it! Literally.
And last but not least, a few recent favorite pics. That I may or may not have taken while driving in my car. (I don't recommend that by the way...)
Love summer time in San Diego. It's a favorite too. :)
Have a great weekend everyone!
