What I'm Loving Wednesday


1.) I love the hot weather right now! Call me crazy but I love the 90* temps we've been having. Listen, most of us here in Michigan complain about all the snow and cold weather in the winter months, so when summer does roll around, I'm going to enjoy every single hot minute of it. And then retreat into my lovely air conditioning. :)

2.) I am all about Jessica Alba's book "The Honest Life". If you're anything like me, you've probably ignored all of the people who are talking about organic this and organic that. I thought that everyone was going overboard and being dramatic about living clean, but I am a changed woman. Jessica's book not only talks about why and how to eat "honestly" but also gives you insight into cleaning products, beauty products, and more. I can't say that I have changed everything in my house, but I'm starting slowly by buying organic fruits, cage free eggs, and organic chicken when I can. I've also switched out the girls bath products to Burt's Bees, which is 98% natural. It smells ah-mazing! The last switch I've made was changing my cleaning products to the Method brand. Sounds like I've turned into a hippie, right? Nope, but I do want to use products that don't have a ton of scary chemicals in them! Here's something to ponder today: "In the past 35 years, the EPA has restricted only 5 toxic substances and the FDA has banned 11. Meanwhile, the European Union has banned more than 1100 chemicals that it considers unsafe in personal care products alone!" (Jessica Alba- The Honest Life)

3.) I am so thrilled that we have the cutest little beach and park close to our house. It's about 5 minutes from our house and I love that I can quickly pack up the girls and get there without having to be stuck in the hot car for a long drive. Mike and I took the girls there on Monday and they had so much fun! They loved the water but they were more excited to play on the playground.

What are you loving today?
