These are a few of my favorite things….

Today, I”m totally pulling an Oprah and sharing with you some of my favorite things lately. Just think of it as Christmas in July.


1) My Fitness Pal.

I love this website! It”s a free calorie counting website, and has become a priceless tool in my slow but steady road of weight loss post-baby#2 (Yes, that was 2 years ago. To be fair, I lost the baby weight pretty easily but now I”m losing the “all the pizza & alcohol in college” weight. Ahem.) If you have a smartphone, you can also use the free app, which I find extremely useful since I use my smartphone all the time.

2) Top 100 Children”s Books of All Time

This list is so awesome! We”ve been checking out books on this list all summer. Some were not books that we would casino have otherwise read and have now become favorites. I also like how it”s for mixed ages….some are longer picture books, and some are baby board books, but my 2 and 5 year old have enjoyed most of them together.

3) Aveda Be Curly Curl Enhancer

I bought this at my local Aveda salon, but you can order it off Amazon. Basically, I”m going to give my new hair stylist a big fat kiss next time I get my hair cut. I have big, wavy hair that I”ve never been able to get curly, despite gel & mousse. I KNEW it had the potential, though. After nonchalantly speaking with her about this dilemma at my last hair cut, she told me to use this product. And it”s basically changed my life. I haven”t fooled with trying to straighten my hair in MONTHS.


What about you? What are some of your favorite things this summer?
