These are a few of my (current) favorite things…
1. Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Countertop Spray, Honeysuckle
I know I mentioned the Holiday-Scented products at Christmas time, and I just ran out of the Cranberry Spray, so I picked up the Honeysuckle. It smells, honestly, like springtime in a bottle. And if the Honeysuckle isn’t your thing– they have several other scents. You might be a Lysol gal, and I am too when I’m dealing with raw chicken clean up or something like that. But when it’s the everyday clean-up, I love these scented sprays– it cleans well and freshens the air as well. And, being all natural– when Lucy wants to help I don’t worry about the chemicals. I bought mine at Target, but if you cannot find it, you can also Purchase it here on Amazon. This link is for a 3-pack.
2. I was introduced to these What’s in The Bible DVD’s last October and our girls loved them so much that we bought another a couple months ago.
They are made by Phil Vischer (of Veggietales) and they are excellent! I would highly recommend them to families with children who are a bit past the Veggietales stage–Although my kiddos still love both. They are available at LifeWay, although you can also Buy them here at Amazon– their price seems to be the best I’ve seen.
3. These Trail Mix Energy Bites from Gimme Some Oven are very good. I pinned them under “Healthy Snacks” but the kids have been having them as a healthy dessert– because Hello, Chocolate Chips, Pretzels and Peanut Butter. But they also have wheat germ, rolled oats and can also have chia seeds but we didn’t have any. This particular food blog has several yummy granola ball type options I would like to try. We’ve made the traditional No Bake Energy Bites many times and we loved them. They were my number one quick snack when I was nursing Abby. Great energy-filled snack that seems like a treat and (bonus!) portion control! Try them both!!!
4. Lastly, but most importantly– THIS opportunity to take part in the unspeakable work that God is doing in this community in Maubane, South Africa. If you have only 5 minutes, read this post or watch the video below and consider taking your lunch a couple days this week and donating $10.00 (or more if you can!) to this amazing opportunity. We’re building a Community Center and Kitchen for this group of 250 little ones and the more than 150 who care for them. Whatever your to-do list contains today– consider investing in these Mums who are being Mothers to the Motherless!
