Hi, friends! Goooooood morning to you! I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. This week has totally flown by for me. Holy cow.
It being Thursday and all, I wanted to share another edition of What I’m Loving Lately. I have a lot of fun writing these posts, and I hope you guys enjoy reading them! So, without further ado, here is what I’m loving lately!
@jermzlee on Instagram
I am loving (and, ok, totally obsessed) with Jeremy Veach’s Instagram account. He posts the most amazing photos of his pug, Norm, and they always make me smile. (Norm even does selfies!) If you’re a pug-lover or even just a dog-lover, you definitely need to follow @jermzlee on Instagram. You are guaranteed some daily happiness!
Scotch Brite Upholstery Pet Hair Remover
Elizabeth told me about the Scotch Brite Upholstery Pet Hair Remover when she visited the other day, and I immediately ordered it online. (Amazon Prime, baby!) We share the same dog fur battle (her: dark Frenchie fur on a light beige couch; me: fawn pug fur on a dark gray couch), so I knew she was onto something with her recommendation.
Unfortunately, the Pet Hair Remover didn’t really work on our living room couch because the “Microtrap Grippers” kept getting stuck on the woven fabric, but it worked AMAZINGLY WELL on the microfiber couch on our sun porch, which is where Murphy spends the majority of his day (while crushing all of the throw pillows with his enormous pug butt). There’s seriously SO MUCH pug fur on this couch (it’s actually kind of gross), so I am psyched to have this new pet fur removing tool!
Basically, if you have a microfiber couch and a crazy-shedding dog or cat, definitely get this thing! I cleaned ALL of the fur off the sun porch couch in a matter of minutes, and it was awesome! So much easier than dragging out the vacuum!
Chunky Lola Cookies
I had my first Chunky Lola Cookie at Flour a few weeks ago when I met Lauren for lunch, and I’ve been dreaming about them ever since. With it being the final week of my April Cookbook Challenge and all, I finally decided it was time to bake a batch of them and, oh my goodness, they did not disappoint!
I’m really loving fresh mint lately. I’ve been adding it to my juice in the morning (loving: apple, cucumber, baby spinach, lemon, and mint) and making virgin mojitos with it almost every night.
I’ve been meaning to tell the pregnant ladies (and those of you who don’t drink alcohol) about my virgin mojitos because they are SO GOOD and SO EASY to make. All you need is a mortar and pestle, 1 lime, sugar, seltzer water or coconut water, and a bunch of fresh mint. Then, cut the lime into quarters and muddle it with sugar (I use about 1-2 teaspoons) and mint. When you have a muddled mess of lime, mint, and sugar, pour it into a glass with ice and then add seltzer water or coconut water for a delicious, light, and refreshing virgin mojito in a matter of minutes! (It’s also delicious with flavored coconut water, like pineapple or pomegranate.)
Jessica Simpson’s Maternity Line
I’m actually a little sad that I just discovered Jessica Simpson’s maternity line with less than 6 weeks to go of my pregnancy because she has so many cute things that I would have totally purchased, but I figured I’d tell the moms-to-be out there anyway!
