Four Faves

-Buddha Bowls:  These happy bowls full of hearty grains, protein, and veggies are insanely good for you and taste amazing.  I like to make mine with quinoa, lentils, roasted vegetables, and crunchy chickpeas, but they can really be made with anything you have in your fridge.  Recipe to come!


-DIY Reading Lists:  I am a shameless fan of chick lit.  I mean, who doesn’t love Bridget Jones’s Diary?  But this year, I decided to step up my reading game and create my own reading list.  You can obviously pick any books you like or check out guides like this or this to help you get started with creating a well rounded list.  I’m 3 books in and loving it.



-Siggi’s Yogurt:  Yummm this yogurt is seriously delicious!  Just a few things about it:  high protein, low sugar, real fruit and sweeteners, and milk that’s only from grass-fed cows.  But most importantly it tastes awesome!


-Flowering Branches:  Spring is only 10 days away, and I can’t wait!  So to get in the mood a little early, we’re starting to decorate with beautiful flowering branches.  You get big impact from just a few branches, and they give a little twist to a normal bouquet.  Check out forsythia, quince, almond, and cherry blossoms.  Find them at florists, Trader Joe’s, and your neighbors’s yards  😉



Easter Decorations {for under $10}

Last week one of my good friends told me about how she had done Easter decorations around their house for less. She found several great things from Marshall’s and even the Dollar Tree. As she was telling me about these it inspired me and I took our conversation as a challenge that I gladly accepted.

I had been wanting an excuse to buy confetti filled Easter eggs, a childhood obsession of mine, and had seem them in a recent Paper Source ad so off I went, on a mission.

I returned home with Starburst jelly beans and a carton of Silly Rabbit Confetti Eggs from Paper Source. I used the same $5 container of moss from my orchid project earlier this week, it came from Flower Mart in Green Hills.



Once home I took a couple of minutes and pulled the random “bunny” weddings gifts and items from around my house. Then put together a seasonal entryway. If you don’t have any bunny things (it sounds sort of silly that I do but you know like little McCarty, Herend, Wolfe “figurines” — now I really sound like an old lady) that is totally fine too! Wolfe birds or any other little animals would work well too or nothing at all.

After peeling the bottom off of two of the confetti eggs I sprinkled the confetti around the moss and placed the eggs, then I added little groups of jelly beans around the eggs.

For less than $10 I had all of the happy Easter decorations needed for our little home.
