These are a few of my favorite things:

Some things I am loving lately.

Bath & Body's Work's True Blue Spa lotion
I'm not a huge fan of B&BWorks in general, 
but I love the whole True Blue Spa line.
This lotion is thick and creamy and oh so perfect for your feet at night.

Orange Blossom face wash from Young Living
I haven't ever had a great makeup remover/face wash that I just loved.
My skin is a combo of oily/dry, and I'm prone to hormonal breakouts.
Because I love my Young Living oils so much, I decided to try this face wash.
I used some rewards points to get it for free, and MAN, I am in love.
It's a mixture of ningxia wolf berry, lemon, lavender, rosemary, orange blossom extract, aloe vera, kelp, and more.  It smells utterly dreamy, and my skin looks better than it ever has before.

Chobani Blackberry on the bottom Greek Yogurt
Greek yogurt has always made me gag - far too thick for my taste.
Until this dreamy little container.  
It's like a dessert, with the bonus of being good for me.  #winning

heavy cream in my coffee

my new journaling Bible
 Where has this BEEN all my life?!
I love writing in my Bible, but I want it to be orderly...
this is perfection.

Aden & Anais Daydream bamboo blanket
OK, so I don't actually own this one yet, but it is SO on my wish list!
$150 for a blanket is indeed a luxury item, 
but if you've ever used Aden & Anais muslin blankets with your babies,
you know what a dream it would be to have this GROWN UP sized version!

Trader Joe's Kona Coffee Truffles
Any time we are traveling and pass a TJ's, 
I buy 3 or 4 bags of these and hoard them, eating 1 a week or so,
and hiding the bag in the back of the pantry where no one will find them. 

audio books from the public library
Tucker loves being read to, and asks for audio books over music in the car.
For Christmas, we gave him the audio version of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe,
and he was spellbound from beginning to end.
We spend a lot of hours in the car between picking Lana up in the carline, and going back and forth to swim team and lessons 3x a week, so listening to audio books is a lifesaver for us.
Right now we're listening to several of Roald Dahl's works, and The Magician's Nephew. 

Chopped on Netflix 
Lana and I are totally addicted. 

Texting buddies
I'm not a phone talker, 
and many of the people who are dearest to me live far away.
I am so, so thankful for texting: late at night, early in the morning,
random things throughout the day, prayers, encouragement, hilarity, bragging on kids.
It's not the same as living in a village and doing our laundry in the river together,
but it's so, so good, and I'm thankful for it.

Cinnamon roasted almonds
Between these and the cocoa ones, I feel like I can satisfy my 3 o'clock sweet tooth with something good for me!  They are super yummy. 

Young Living's Relieve It oil blend
This little bottle is on the top of the pain relief charts.
Between old back/neck injuries from a car wreck (or two), running a few miles 3x a week, and being a generally clumsy person, my pain relief oils are top of the line important to me!  
It's a blend of spruce, black pepper, peppermint, and hyssop,
and it is a warming oil that is great for muscles, joints, etc.  
If I knew someone having arthritis pain, this would be one I'd suggest they try.

Thin-line felt-tipped pens
These are my jam.
