Good morning and happy FRIDAY, friends! Here is another edition of What I’m Loving Lately. ENJOY!
Chocolate Frosted Doughnuts – These amazing-looking doughnuts are made with FlapJacked Protein Pancake Mix and, holy cow, I want them. The ingredient list is pretty simple, so I might do a little baking this weekend!
New toy storage – We finally organized Quinn’s toys, so they are no longer taking over our house. Hooray!
BEFORE: Toy madness in the living room.
AFTER: Nice and neat toy storage in Quinn’s room. Now we just take a bin or two at a time into the living room for him to play with. It works great!
What to Delete on Your Phone – This was super helpful since I am forever trying to free up space on my iPhone.
A letter to my son Jacob on his 5th birthday – Get the tissues ready for this one!
Could You Live In a Tiny House? – My obsession continues. And the house is in Burlington, Vermont.
My sister-in-law on Jeopardy – Oh my gosh, we are SO PUMPED about this. My sister-in-law, Jen, will be on Jeopardy next Monday night (3/9). She’s wicked smaht. Make sure you watch!
11 Things Highly Organized People Don’t Understand About Unorganized People – Oh my gosh, #1. I will never understand.
Avocado Fresh Pod – Hey, another kitchen tool! You’re probably thinking: Ugh, I already have so much stuff in my kitchen drawers… I do NOT need an avocado pod. People, I thought the exact same thing until I used one and, wow, it was life-changing. It really, truly works. I put half of an avocado in it, popped it in the fridge, and three days later, it was barely brown. Awe. Some.
Are You Underfueling? – Great article. Eating too little can have short-term and long-term consequences for your body and your workouts.
My new Glycerin 12 kicks – Yes, I needed to mention them again. I am totally in love.
Use an Empty Water Bottle to Separate an Egg Yolk – I saw this on TV the other day and just had to share. So cool!
Tissues – Kidding! Well, kind of. I’ve had the worst booger-tastic cold for about a week now, so I finally caved and bought tissues. It’s actually kind of a joke in our house because I’m always like: Just use toilet paper. You’re blowing snot in there. It’s not like you need a special piece of tissue to do it. Growing up, both my parents were part of the ”˜just use toilet paper’ camp, so I was too””until my nose was red and raw from blowing it so many times. I even splurged and bought the ones with aloe and vitamin E! Haha!
Questions of the Day
What were your parents cheap about?
Oh, boy. Mine were cheap about a lot of stuff. But, honestly, it made me good with money, so I’m forever thankful for their saving ways. A couple of things my parents were cheap about: I don’t think our heat ever went over 60 degrees in our house even in the winter, and I once remember my dad telling me to wash my hair with bar soap because he didn’t use shampoo. Ha!
Could you live in a tiny house?
As much as I love the idea of living in a tiny, super organized house, I really don’t think I could do it””unless I lived alone, and I would never want that.
What’s your favorite type of donut?
Chocolate glazed with sprinkles!
