Happy Last Friday of April, y’all! I can’t believe how fast this month has flown by! Here are the few things that I have been really loving this month!
Favorite Verse This Month
This verse has just held alot of meaning for me this month. It has been the exact reminder that I need that this world is not our home and that our focus should be on the eternal, not the temporary things of this world!
Random Favorites This Month
I just ordered these resistance bands, and I’m in LOVE! First of all, they are so stinkin cute! Second of all, they come with this great bag so they will be SUPER easy to travel with. That’s really why I got them. I have tested them out, they seem sturdy, and I love the material. I think I’m going to LOVE being able to workout on the go while we are travelling during the summer! I hate having to try to find a gym or workout room in a hotel or something in an unfamiliar place, but then I also hate just not working out while I’m gone because typically my nurtition goes to nearly crap. #balance though right?? hahaha.
Speaking of nutrition, have y’all ever tried this powdered peanut butter?! I’ll admit I was skeptical. Very skeptical. Didn’t think it could be that easy and taste the same. But you know what? I was WRONG! I am loving this stuff for things like toast, waffles, oatmeal… basically anything where you don’t need a ton of peanut butter. It is so much lower in calories and fat too! #win! I am normally an almond butter girl, but this has had me reaching fro peanut butter again! I will say, I normally do half the recommended serving with a dash more water. That’s the perfect amount for one slice or bowl of something in my opinion! Do ya’ll use this for anything else that I should try?!
Okay this is really a random one, but several of my friends had been using this deodorant. Normally I’m an anti-persperant plus deodorant girl, but I do love this stuff!! I got these two scents and have been wearing the Bergamont + Lime before/during my workouts and then I use the Rose + Vanilla for just every day wear. I feel like they smell good, prevent sweat as well as anything else I’ve used, and they’re “natural”! If I can find a natural product that I like just as well (which I’ll be honest, I did no research on these so they might not be as natural as what I think they are…I just borrowed some once and liked it), then I’ll normally use it over something that’s not natural. I just figure might as well pick the safer products when I like them just as well! So if you’re in the market for a new deodorant, I highly recommend this brand! They had a bunch of scents too!
I love drinking water, but I started noticing that I just didn’t drink it as much as I would have liked to simply because it was a hassle to always be filling up a cup! In leiu of a Yeti or tumbler cup of that sort, I decided to go with this glass mason jar so that I could easily add fruit or essential oils to the water for flavor and then just throw it in the dishwasher. I have added both to stainless steel cups before and found that they still tasted like it even after I washed it, so I really wanted something that was glass instead. Just my personal preference! This one is 32 ounces, so I have been trying to fill it up at LEAST twice, but I have been aiming for three times a day. I really feel like it has been helping me drink more water!
These hair bands ya’ll. I am OBSESSED. It took me forever to try them, but now I’m hooked! I LOVE that they don’t crease your hair, slide out easily, but also hold your hair in place! I can’t think of a time that my hair got ratty around one of these. And they have NEVER fallen or slid out while I have been running or working out. I think they’re just fabulous!
I am reading two books right now actually. I haven’t quite finished The Power of a Praying Wife yet because I have slowed and just read one chapter or so a day since they are prayers. I’ve also started Mere Christianity (I have read almost the entire book a few times, but have never finished it). I definitely had read enough that I liked it and would recommend it, but now I am re-reading, loving, and finding more there than I ever had before!
Here are the top three posts from this month!
That wraps it up for this month! Do y’all have anything you’re loving that I should try!?
