Hi Friends👋, I hope you all had a great Easter Weekend! In today’s post I’m going to be talking about a little Easter and a lot of March Favorites! I love a good Favorites post.
In recapping our Easter, we had a very chill one here and I mean chill in every sense of the word. In regards to temperature we are back to burning wood in the fire box, yes we are in another cold snap and I really feel like this is the never ending winter and probably the whitest we have ever been, lol! We also chilled and watched movies, had a casual Easter lunch with chicken salad sandwiches on croissants, the kids opened their baskets the Easter Bunny left them and we had an early egg hunt. We had to beat the rain and the hail, and the wind and cold temps, you just never know what you are going to get out here. This weather definitely teaches you to roll with the punches!
Jarret also starts his new job this week and it will bring lots of changes to our family and it will also bring us to a new location this summer! The moving part has brought a lot of mixed emotions, but as I’ve learned time and time again, life is an adventure and as much as I would like to control it, (and try to) ultimately GOD has different plans for us.
My Easter egg hunting pictures didn’t turn out very well because the kids we zipping across the lawn so fast and my fingers were frozen, so apologies this is all you get, ha!
If you would like to see what the kids got in their baskets this year, I filmed a little video sharing all three!
*Bath & Body-
CeraVe Moisturizing Cream is the one stop shop for moisturizing. We all use this! It works on Bryce’s eczema really well and what I love about this lotion is it rubs in and doesn’t leave your skin greasy! In the summer we will probably switch to the lotion.
Carmex is the best lip balm and it works well! We have so many of these throughout the house, in the car, purses, backpacks, desk drawer, kitchen junk drawer…anywhere you turn you are bound to find one! Plain, old school Carmex.
ME! Bath Bombs are great if you don’t want to pay the hefty price tag on the fancier ones sold by Bath & Body or Lush! Maddie loves to use bath bombs and these are small and the perfect size for a standard sized tub.
Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara is a great drug store mascara for a very reasonable price! The formula and consistency is great.
Naked Juice Smoothies! Bryce is not my “breakfast” food eater. He will eat breakfast but, it usually isn’t breakfast like items, it’s usually leftovers. I really promote and encourage a healthy breakfast for him to start his day and these have been a great & easy compromise, especially on busy school mornings when we don’t have the time to argue or warm up leftovers. I get the small ones at Sam’s club and they also sell them individually at Walmarts.
My Family loves potatoes and when I discovered the Little Potato Company it makes my life so much easier! It’s perfect, they come with little potatoes in a tray that you cook for 5 minutes, sprinkle the seasoning and a little olive oil or butter and you done! That’s it, easy, I get mine from Walmart and it was on sale for $3!
Planet Earth II is an incredible documentary about animals and their habitat in different parts of the world. The videography is amazing and I don’t know how they get some of those close up shots!?! Check it out, it’s on Netflix.
Those are my March 2018 Favorites and a little recap from our Easter weekend!
