a few of my favorite things
I am turning into a souther girl. I love monograming. What can I say? It just makes me happy. My friend, April, has her own monograming business, Stitches By April. When I saw these shirts with little pockets on them, I knew I had to get them and put some monograms on them. And fast. I am in love with this shirt (and the hubby likes it too – BONUS!)
SPOILER ALERT: The last shirt is a gift, and I don’t think they have received it yet. If they read this post and know their initials, and that their favorite color is green, I guess they know the shirt is coming.
My mom got me this candle for my birthday and I am loving it. Every time I light it the whole house smells like Fall. Perfection. This chapstick has been with me through two labors and deliveries. I am not a big chapstick fan, but Mr.YesToCarrots, we have a special bond. Sippy cups and I have a love HATE relationship. I have been on the search for the perfect sippy cup and I think I have finally found one that I don’t want to throw out the window every time we use them. I have spent my fair share of money on cups to find this one. If you are in search for the cup, look no further. Give this Nuby 2 Handle Flip Straw Cup a try!
Foldover elastic. It’s so pretty. Stretchy. Colorful. Easy. And makes any girl feel a little more, well, girly. I wear one of these headbands on days that I want to look cute, but keep my hair out of my face. This is also the only way I can keep a bow or flower in Ruthie’s hair. Love it.
I am here to say, I am a believer. I haven’t been able to wear earring for quite sometime now. I developed an allergy to any kind of earring in High School. I use to be able to wear earring for a few hours and be okay. I got to the point I could hardly wear them during dinner on a date night with out going crazy from the itching and then paying for it for DAYS after while my ears were trying to heal from the dramatic event.
I had given up on the idea that I could ever wear earrings. I had even tried platinum and still no luck. But then, a friend (thank you Mo!) told me about “Wear Earrings Again“. Long story short, I ordered some titanium earrings and I’ve been wearing them for a few days now. The worst part is over and I am seeing light at the end of the tunnel. It really does seem like I will be able to wear earrings without some serious consequences. I can’t believe I am wearing earrings RIGHT now as I type this without thinking the whole time “My ears feel like they are on FIRE!” So excited.
I hope you are able to try a few of my favorite things. I love that the little things in life can bring much joy. Sometimes, it’s just a sippy cup that doesn’t leak, or pretty elastic, or being able to wear earring without your ears falling off. Whatever it might be, live hard and happy.
