Happy Friday! I’m linking up once again with Darci and friends for Five on Friday:)

My sweet kiddos! I snapped this picture while they were sitting together for a few minutes. That doesn’t happen often-they are always on the go! I’m loving their stripes as well:)

One word…addicted! My husband and I love Chipotle! It’s so, so yummy! We pick it up to go sometimes on the weekend. My husband has their app, so we’re able to place the order in advance, select a pick-up time, and walk right in to get the order! How convenient! I would love to find a good copycat recipe for their chicken burritos. I’ve tried a few recipes but nothing is as good as the real thing!

It’s party planning time! While Miss Harper’s birthday isn’t until March, I’ve been busy planning her second (gasp-time has flown by!) birthday party. The loosely created theme will be based around mason jars and the colors will be green, navy blue, and a splash of pink. I’m having so much fun coming up with decorations and party ideas!

It’s also spring consignment sale time! Over the snow days last week, I started entering in information for a consignment sale in March. One huge advantage to being a seller (besides the money you make) is the opportunity to shop early and get some great clothes!!

In my quest to simplify life and stress less, one of the things I’m working on is paring down the number of household products we use. I’m also making more household items, such as this foaming baby shampoo and these reed diffusers. I came across an article recently about how bad some of the baby shampoos are and started doing some research. I found a neat, free app from the Environmental Working Group called Skin Deep. You scan the barcode of products and it will give you a rating scale of 0-10 for health concerns (focusing on cancer, developmental/reprotoxicity, and allergy), with 0 being the best and 10 being the worst for you. I went a little crazy scanning items the other evening, ha! Luckily, the highest product number we had was a 6, which I proceeded to toss. I also ended up throwing away some of Harper’s toothpaste that we hadn’t used yet since it ranked 5 out of 10. Yuck:( Now I’m on a mission to find safer shampoos, soaps, and other toiletries for us. Any suggestions?

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Thanks for sharing that app – looks like I’ll be going through our house this weekend and scanning everything. I like to this we are pretty conscious about using super safe products but I know I could be better! Oh and speaking of things that are good for you… Chipotle! SO GOOD.
