I love it because unlike most nut butters, they use coconut oil聽instead of palm seed oil, honey vs refined cane sugar, and Himalayan salt instead of table salt. 聽The almonds are local (Oakdale, CA). 聽Maybe not local to those not in this area but at least you know where it’s at.馃槈聽 It’s pretty much amazing and they weren’t kidding when they said it goes down quickly! I bought a 16 oz jar and it was gone in little over a week! 聽#weliveonit 聽Go here for a discount on my favorite almond butter!

Pretty sure these are the almonds used  馃槈 #oakdalecalifornia

Another favorite is my Mother’s Day gift from Grant and Grayson! 聽Props to Grant for the creativity. 馃檶馃徏 聽Mother’s Day morning Grant had Grayson give me a gift bag and these were the 3 things I found. First, this baby onesie!

Next, was what looked like a dirty diaper but it was actually filled with dove chocolates instead of other goodies! 馃槀聽And lastly, this gift certificate…Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 5.16.35 PMScreen Shot 2017-06-20 at 5.16.46 PMScreen Shot 2017-06-20 at 5.17.12 PMIf you have a聽drybar location near you, try it out! If you don’t, I know many hair salons already offer blow-outs, so go get one. Whether it’s for a special occasion or just a night out; it’s a fun relaxing time!

A summer refresher for all styles!! No matter your personal style use this quick tip to create a聽new聽look at an inexpensive price in your living space! Keep year-round neutral/classic accent pillows on your sofas and chairs. 聽In addition to these, have other accent pillows that are your pops of color, festive, and fun ones. 聽These additional pillows can then be easily switched out for the seasons or anytime you feel the need for a refresher! Using pillow covers makes for an easy switch. 聽If you lean towards a contemporary style and like to refresh with what is current, some popular Summer 2017 colors to look for are shown in the palette below.fullsizeoutput_121f

Here are some pillow ideas with the popular summer colors in mind. Click to shop!

This website called Ebates is a must!! 聽Thanks to my sister Michelle, I fell in love with this around Christmas time last year and have been making money every time I shop online. 聽I wasn’t sure if I would use it or not but let’s just say it’s silly not to be using it! 聽For instance, I buy lots of baby essentials through Before I go to the target website to buy something I go to the聽Ebates website and then click target as my store of choice for that shopping trip. This automatically re-routes me to to complete my purchase. When I make a purchase at any of the listed retailers it calculates my cash back based on the percent each store is offering. 聽Every 3 months I am mailed a check with my “CASH BACK.” 聽It’s so simple and there are NO catches… Just me getting paid to shop online!! Who doesn’t love that?! #notmadaboutit 聽Now I can tell Grant that it “pays to shop, literally.”聽馃槀

One of our recent day-getaways was to Oak Farm Vineyards in Lodi, California. This place is gorgeous!! The winery location has preserved the heritage of the 1930s oak tree farm all while being recently renovated to bring a modern twist to each glass! 聽This is a great place to unwind with friends or a simple date night where you can sample some of California’s best. If you aren’t near Lodi, search for local wineries in your area. 聽Pack a light picnic and call it a date!!

A book that I recently read was Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin. 聽I wish it didn’t say women in the title because it honestly would be great for guys too! Jen does a wonderful job of offering a concise plan to help us study the scripture on a deeper level. 聽I like how she first redirects our focus of studying the Word. 聽She says, “We must first ask, what does this passage teach me about God, before we ask it to teach us anything about ourselves.”聽If you decide on this as your next read, set aside time to dig in and follow her outline of becoming Women of the Word!
