It’s the end of March. Spring isn’t yet springing in our neighborhood. A little case of the blahs has settled in at our house. Luckily, there are a few things in my life that are bringing me some simple joy right now, THANK GOODNESS. So, without further ado, here are my five favorite items in March.
OPI Berlin There, Done That
I am NOT a wearer of nail polish. But lately, I’ve just been in the mood try it. I have no idea why. So when I saw someone on Instagram recommend OPI’s Berlin There Done That, I decided to go for it. Honestly, this is the first time I’ve paid more than $3 for nail polish in my whole life. But I’m in love with it. I’m a believer. I love that it’s a basic neutral color that pretty much goes with anything I wear. And it goes on super smooth and wears really well. So yeah. In love about sums it up.
Hebrews Bible Study by Jen Wilkin
So, the ladies Bible study I’m part of just recently started this study of Hebrews. I’m a huge fan of Jen Wilkin but this is the first Bible study I’ve ever done by her. Listen. If you desire to get serious about studying the Word, CHECK OUT HER STUDIES.
They are available for FREE, which is amazing. She has a .pdf study guide that goes along with each study; you can print it out at home or send it to a printer like Office Max or Office Depot to have it printed and spiral-bound (which is what I did).
She also has a podcast that goes along with each lesson. Here’s how bible study looks for our group: we discuss the week’s homework for about 45 min, then listen to the podcast together. The discussion has been really good. The questions are really thought-provoking. I wholeheartedly recommend it.
Mom Struggling Well Podcast
What, really, can I say about Emily Thomas, and her IG account, and especially her podcast, other than I big fat puffy heart love her?! She’s real. Authentic. Encouraging. Hilarious. I want to be her BFF but until that happens, I will happily and religiously listen to every episode of her podcast. So good.
Mrs. Meyers Multi-Purpose Cleaner
It seriously is all about the little things in life, mamas. For years and years and years I have just used a wet rag to wipe down counters, adding a little Thieves cleaning spray when in need something a little stronger. But it’s spring cleaning time! I was in the mood to try something new so I ordered Mrs. Meyers Multi-Purpose Cleaner, and oh my stars. The scents. Divine. It makes me enjoy cleaning. And THAT is a sentence I never thought would come out of my mouth. I’ve also switched to using Mrs. Meyers dish soap, which puts me in a happy place when washing dishes.
I know you can buy these Mrs. Meyers products at Target. But since we live an hour from the nearest Target, I happily order mine as part of my monthly order at Grove Collaborative.
Olly Restful Sleep Vitamins
So I’m a pretty horrible sleeper. A friend who is also sleep deprived recommended these vitamins to me a year or so ago. I gave them a try, and oh my goodness. They really really work. I started out taking the recommended dosage of two per night but they were giving me CRAZY intense dreams, so I backed off to one per night, which is perfection. So good.
