I’m sitting here on Thursday afternoon with a sore throat, snotty nose and a slight fever.  Blah.  I CANNOT (will not) be sick!!  On top of regular everyday life that I’d like to feel good doing, we have Aristocats next week (which means daily rehearsals).  Plus my sister in law’s wedding shower is tomorrow and I’m helping with that.  Please send all your positive “get well” prayers and vibes my way.  And chocolate.  You can send your chocolate too.

Today, I thought I’d share a few things that I’m loving lately.  This isn’t a sponsored post – just some things that have been making me happy lately.  Feel free to share your latest finds/loves in the comments below – links too, so I can buy stuff. Winking smile


1.  My new iRobot Braava!


I know I’ve mentioned it before but FLOORS ARE MY THING.  I like them to be clean!  I’d been eyeing these robotic vacuums for a few years but never bought one.  When I saw this iRobot on Groupon for a steal of a deal, I scooped it up!  It’s a little different than the Roomba’s that you might have heard of – this one actually doesn’t vacuum – it MOPS (dry or wet).  It’s perfect for getting lint, hair and dust off the floor (which we need as Clara is highly allergic to dust mites).

I used it yesterday (after it charged overnight) and LOOK at what it got off my hardwood floor!!!


Gross!!  (and awesome!!)  I need to play around with it more to learn all the quirks but so far, I have nothing but great things to say!  You just turn it on and let it wander around your house.  It comes with cloths but you can use Swiffer pads as well.

2.  Doing a show with Henry.


Aristocats runs next week so we’re in the hardest part of rehearsals right now, going practically every night for two hours.  It can be exhausting.  But Henry.  He’s been a trooper.  Excitedly tackling every night and listening and working hard at being cat-like.  It makes me smile so big watching him up there.

3.  Kid-O Magnatab Writers

Ok!  This magnetic writing tool is SO flipping cool!  The minute I saw these at our local kid’s boutique I knew I had to get them for Clara.


The pad has a bead filled alphabet board that you use with a magnetic stylus to pull the beads through.  It’s a really fun way to learn how to write your letters (and helps with hand dexterity).  We have the upper and lower case set but I saw this numbers one that looks cool too.  (They even sell a cursive pad if you’ve got an older child!)  She takes it around everywhere. Smile

4.  The return of SPRING!!


As if this needs it’s own spot!  I can’t get over the WARMTH and the FLOWERS and the WARMTH!!!  It’s so nice to go on walks or to the park during the day without having to wear a jacket.

5.  The Fresh Pod Avocado Saver

We can easily down an avocado with most any meal we eat – they’re just so versatile and GOOD!  But when I’m alone or only want a little bit, this Fresh Pod Avocado Keeper has been just wonderful!  It’s only like $6 on Amazon and it’s saved me from having to throw out quite a few halved avocados.  Dishwasher safe too!


6.  Reverent Creation’s necklaces

Lastly, I have to give a shout out to the lovely ladies at Reverent Creations!  I met Kim (one of the owners) last Fall at Refresh Summit and immediately fell in love with her necklaces.  Each Reverent Creation has a special Bible verse or meaning.  I have two necklaces: “Made for More” and “Be Brave”.


I also just bought my mom this one for her birthday with one of my favorite verses!

  2. I’m loving the NCAA tournament right now! I got to go to the Villanova-Lafayette and NCSU-LSU games last night and it was truly March madness– being from NC (and graduating from NC State), I love college basketball and the game last night reminded me why.

  3. Now I’m loving your necklaces – awesome!! I have the sore throat, VERY snotty nose, aches cold thing right now – I pray you don’t get it like I have it…I have taken it easy physically this week but today have fitness class to teach :) we shall see how this goes!
