It’s been quite some time since I’ve composed a “happy list” on this here blog of mine. Let us dust off the cobwebs, so to speak, and let me share with you a few things that I’m just loving lately and a few things that are bringing me all kinds of happiness and joy. Maybe you’ll see something that sparks your interest and maybe you’ll see something you’d like to try as well!
one | Silk® Nutchello™ Toasted Coconut + Cashew Milk
This over ice my friends in my trusty mason jar with a pretty paper straw. It’s nothing short of heavenly. And at only 80 calories per serving with 9 grams of sugar? You just can’t even feel guilty about it. It’s a sweet treat that’s also low in sugar, saturated fats, and cholesterol. Give me anything coconut with a hint of sweetness and I’ll be your best friend this pregnancy… trust me! There’s two other Silk® Nutchello™ flavors as well, Rich Dark Chocolate with Almonds and Caramel Almonds + Chashews. (And all of them are pretty delicious if you ask me!)
two | Local Organic Tomatoes
I’ve waited what seems like centuries for it to be tomato season again and thankfully we have a local greenhouse that starts planting early! They’re finally harvesting and I’m enjoying these delicious cherry tomatoes by the handful. I bought 4 containers of them at the co-op the other day and the check-out guy probably thought I was a little nuts. But not as nuts as he would’ve thought I was if he saw me devour half of the first container in the parking lot. Oops!
three | Audio Books
Why have I not thought of this until now? I drive about 35 minutes to work and about 40-45 minutes home from work every single day. I’ve previously been rotating between old mixed CDs full of music from my high school days, Wisconsin Public Radio, a couple of my favorite podcasts or the Nsync Pandora station. Just recently though, Alea and I have been going to the library more frequently. She’s in the summer reading program and is very serious about it. I was browsing while she was browsing and this Husband’s Secret audiobook caught my eye! I’ve been listening to it ever since and it really helps to make my long drives to and from work more tolerable and interesting!
four | Bergamot + Lavender
Now, you all know by now that I love my essential oils. I love scenting our home with them and playing scent combinations. I’m loving floral and citrus scents for summer and this one is simply perfection. Both uplifting and relaxing all at the same time. You’ll have to give it a try!
There you have it. Those are just a few of the many, many things that are bringing me joy over the last couple of weeks. Not including of course, my sweet husband and the fact that he decided to vacuum at 10:30pm on Father’s Day and my sweet little Alea and how she’s always requesting to snuggle up and read library books with me. You know, even if it is just so she can race the other kids in the summer reading program and get her pedometer prize and pool party invitation. Ha!
Now tell me, what is making you happy these days?
