My mom is heading back our way this afternoon after helping her sister with surgery recovery in Raleigh this week, so it will be wonderful to see her again. We also have a first birthday party to attend on Saturday and I’m hoping to spend a ton of time on the boat as well. Cross your fingers for sunny weather!
And now, since it’s Friday, it’s time to tackle your weekly Things I’m Loving Friday blog post where I share a little bit about some small things that make me smile every week and encourage you to do the same in the comments section.
Heeere we go!
Things I’m Loving Friday
My mom has a gift for finding the coolest little kitchen gadgets that make a big difference! Her last discovery was the silicone pot handle cover that I use constantly whenever I make my frittatas and now that the Lil’ Chizler is in my life, I am using it daily as well. My mom read about this tool in Real Simple and it’s magical. It does the BEST job at removing food that is completely stuck to pots and pans. It’s great for cleaning casserole dishes, muffin tins… the works! You can also use it to remove stickers from picture frames, clean tricky crevasses around the house and more. It’s inexpensive and it works like a charm. Love this thing!
How cute are these diapers!? I flipped when I saw them available online and knew I needed to include them in my next diapering bundle order from The Honest Company. Chase’s Stars & Stripes diapers arrived yesterday and they are even more adorable in person. You better believe he’ll be sporting these bad boys on the Fourth of July!
When I was pregnant, I had an aversion to barbeque sauce and I must say I am so happy that went away after Chase was born because I loooove barbeque everything! Bone Suckin’ BBQ Sauce has been our go-to BBQ sauce for years and I haven’t been able to get enough of it lately. I love it on grilled chicken but it’s also a great makeshift salad dressing when I want a BBQ salad of sorts. The sauce is thinner than most BBQ sauces I’ve tried and the ingredients aren’t creepy, so that’s always a big plus.
By now you guys probably know how much I love the Capri Blue Volcano candle (aka the candle that smells like an Anthropologie store) but I recently purchased the Capri Blue Pomegranate Citrus Candle and it smells so incredible. It’s like summer in candle form and makes our house smell bright and citrusy!
