Loving Lately

A few things I am loving lately...

Healthy Fruit Dip: Mix a 5.3 ounce package of vanilla Greek yogurt, 2 tbsp peanut butter, 1 tbsp honey and a dash of cinnamon. Enjoy with fruit or crackers!
I've been taking this to the office for the perfect mid-afternoon snack.

Parsley Plus: Love is an understatement. I am addicted to this spray. Even Matt is addicted to cleaning our counter tops now. So basically, if you want your husband to start cleaning the kitchen, buy this magical spray.

It all started when I was helping a friend clean her kitchen after a dinner party a few weeks ago. I couldn’t stop commenting on how fresh and amazing her kitchen smelled when she pulled out the bottle and filled me in on her "Earth Friendly" secret – Parsley Plus! As of right now, I haven’t been able to find Parsley Plus in stores, but I have purchased several inexpensive bottles from Amazon, and even sent a few bottles to friends to try out. I purchase my spray {HERE} for $3.99 plus shipping. I am already halfway through my second bottle and will likely buy it in bulk from here on out.

Note: I was not paid to endorse Parsley Plus, I am just crazy obsessed and feel compelled to pass on amazing products to everyone! 

Bath & Body Works' Wild Honeysuckle Hand Soap: I finally transitioned from winter to spring soap. It was hard to say goodbye to the gingerbread soap, but I quickly got over it after I picked up a handful of spring soaps. I've love them all, but I think wild honeysuckle takes the cake!

Fresh Eggs from our neighbor's chickens! Yes, our neighbor has 5 chickens that roam their backyard. Over the weekend we received a dozen eggs and oh-my-word they are so pretty and so tasty. If Charlie wouldn't eat the chickens in 3 seconds, I would totally want some for my backyard.


Fresh Rosemary from our huge bush on our back deck. Somehow we managed to keep our 2011 spring rosemary plant alive and it has been taking over our planter ever since. Every now and then I like to snip a few pieces for the kitchen.

  2. I'm so intrigued by this Parsley Plus! I'm all about non-toxic kitchen sprays, and Ian absolutely HATES that I use vinegar to clean ours ... he says it gives him big hopes that I made BBQ only to be let-down when he figures out it's just the countertops. BAHAHAHA

  5. Fresh organic eggs are SO Much better than store bought. My fiance and I always buy eggs from our local farmers market, not the store.

  13. I too have a hand soap obsession. I currently love Vert Fraise from Williams Sonoma. It's very springy. Aren't fresh eggs the best?
