Is it just me or was this week a blur to any one else? It’s been one of those busy, but really nice weeks. I got a lot accomplished and that feels good! This time of year is just fun! People in general seem to be in better moods, everything is so festive. We can spend our evenings riding around looking at Christmas lights and making Gingerbread houses…the song got it right, It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year for sure! Now on to what has been making me happy this week….
1. Harmless Harvest Coconut Water
Coconut water is new to me and before I buy and try anything new I like to thoroughly research it. If I am going to consume it then I want to make a healthy, informed decision. Not all coconut water is made equal. Many of the ones you will find in the store have been heated (therefore killing all the wonderful nutrients) and have a shelf life of years. Not good! After doing some digging around I found that Harmless Harvest was the way to go. It’s organic, nothing added, nothing taken away and it tastes amazing! I’m super excited that my local grocery store carries it!
2. This Raspberry Kombucha smoothie!
It’s like drinking a dessert for breakfast but it’s actually good for you! Be sure and make the coconut whip cream, it is amazing!
3. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
Can you believe up until a few years ago I had never watched it. Jim was in shock, it’s his favorite….we look forward to it each year now! 🙂
4. This Peppermint Sugar Scrub!
I came across it while reading Melissa’s blog. I have been wanting to make my own coconut scrub for awhile and I was so excited when I saw this one because I had all the ingredients to make it. If you have 2 minutes and the 3 ingredients you can make it! I made it a couple of days ago and it is wonderful!
5. Date Day during the week!
This is something that is rare, but when it does happen it is a nice break from the usually day to day stuff. This time we headed kid free over to St. Simon’s Island to eat some awesome BBQ and do some Christmas shopping! We were back from our little trip in time to pick Lily up from school and a big thanks to Granny Faye for keeping Emma! We may have surprised the girls with these! 🙂
What’s your favorite Christmas movie?
