5 Random Things I'm Loving Right Now

Every once in a while, I like to throw a curve ball post into the mix. And so today, it's coming at you with five random things that I'm loving right now. Perhaps, just maybe, you might come to love one of these things too (if you don't already):


So I put the Burt's Bees in my box at the gym and the eos bulb comes with me everywhere. Seriously, this stuff is great! Neither tube is waxy, which I really hate about lip gloss sometimes. And they both smell great...I'd say they taste great, too...but they don't really taste like anything which is a good thing. Only downfall? They're both a bit pricier than normal lip glosses, but I don't mind paying more for something when that something is totally worth it. (Note: Buy your dude the mint version. My husband loves it...and I totally use it when he's not looking. Ha!)


This Archer Farms stuff is so good. I eat it plan, like...not even with butter. But I also like to eat it with banana slices and peanut butter—Honey/cinnamon/Chia peanut butter. I got a couple of requests for the recipe, but there really is no recipe which is a good thing for you. I started with a jar of Planter's (or store brand) dry roasted, unsalted peanuts and whirled them up in my food processor. I added one teaspoon of cinnamon and two tablespoons of Chia seeds, then I added two teaspoons of honey. It's not as sweet as you might think, and it only hints at the cinnamon flavor, but that's how I like it. Feel free to add more of everything if you want. That's the beauty of homemade nut butters. You can control the additives.


You guys. I hit the denim jackpot. I'm not even joking. These jeans are incredible (and affordable). They're totally stretchy like leggings, but they fit and are thick like regular jeans. AND THEY ARE SO COMFORTABLE. Take a closer look at the waist.

No buttons or zippers! I'm telling you. I had my mom try on a pair this weekend. She walked out of the dressing room and said, "Um...yeah." Sold, just like that. Go try some on.


So for Christmas, I got this pitcher and it totally rocks my water with fruity goodness. I am SO BAD about drinking water throughout the day, but with a hint of strawberry and raspberry, it makes guzzlin' the stuff down a bit easier. Even my daughter chug-a-lugs it.


I am having so much fun with the kettlebell class that I teach once a week. It's a great workout, and a great group of people...today, we had ten in the class. We did windmills and good mornings, and I'm kind of newly obsessed with both moves. Such a great burn!

And so that's that. Five things I'm loving right now. Just thought I'd share. Now it's your turn...

Question: What's something new in your life that you're really loving right now?

Over the past couple weekends I've been turning my laundry room into a laundry room/pantry! I am SO loving the organization and space it frees up in my kitchen, while tucking things nicely away for frequent use! I love feeling organized!
