Things I’m Loving Lately 32

Happy Monday!

I am writing this before I left for the Abacos and hopefully this is publishing bright and early on Monday morning.  I hope y’all had an amazing weekend.  If all went as planned my weekend involved lots of boating and beaches.

I’ll be in the Bahamas for a few more days, then I’m coming back and immediately leaving for another trip to the suburbs of Chicago as a guest of NOW foods to learn more about their company and hopefully share it with you soon.  There’s a big giveaway in this for you too!

As you can imagine, right now I’m loving sun, boating, beaches, palm trees and rum drinks… but here are some things I was loving before I left!

Things I’m Loving Lately 31

All The Flowers

Spring is in full bloom in the mountains! Look at these pretty blooms just in my yard.   Our years of landscaping projects are really paying off this spring.

I feel so much joy this time of year with the feeling of fresh new beginnings.

I think the pink pom pom tree might be my favorite though.

And here’s Makena enjoying the blooms… just because.

Panera Salad

Panera has been changing up their salads faster than I can keep up lately.  I went back in looking forward to trying to beet salad again and the menu changed.  I got this southwest inspired salad instead.  It had greens, quinoa, feat, avocado, peppers and tortilla chips.  I think it technically came with chicken too, but I asked for mine without it.

It was another hit!



I’ve been on an egg kick lately.   It’s been avocado toast and two fried eggs for lunch more times than I care to admit.

This Song

“I’d rather be shiny!”… ME TOO! lol!

The words in this are hilarious…. so make sure to listen.

This Video

This one is basically just to make you smile on a Monday! I always wondered if Rhett could swim.  Enjoy…

Happy Monday beautiful friends!!  If you’re curious as to what I’ve been up to this weekend… make sure to follow along on Instagram.  As long as I can find some wi-fi I’ll be sharing as I go along.  I’ll still be posting here all week too, so don’t go far.  The schedule even includes a new spring workout.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Come back tomorrow for my favorite naturally green foods for St. Patrick’s Day.

I’m linking up with Marvelous Monday & Thinking Out Loud Thursday.

Your turn!

What are you loving lately?

    I’m loving a lot of the things you are loving right now =) The flowers! So gorgeous. I have been really starting to notice them around here too. I should be taking pictures to share.
    Makena Rose is SO CUTE! I just can’t get enough of that little face. I wish we lived closer so our pups could have a play date, I think they would get along famously =)
    I wonder if Panera would make the salad without cheese… it looks really good. I didn’t realize they had such good looking salads.
    And the last video – too cute!

      I bet they would get along– Makena has relentless energy playing though! I often ask Panera to make a salad without the chicken so I’m sure they could make it without the cheese. They will often sub avocado for free if you take something off too.

    I’m loving being on the beach right now! But I agree with you that spring flowers are the best! Cherry Blossoms in full bloom are just gorgeous. Can’t wait to hear about your trips.

    I have not been to Panera forever! So I am sure all their salads would be new to me. Cute video!

    It looks like you’re having a great trip! Annabelle loves that music video from moana, haha. We have watched it numerous times. I’m loving the fact I only have a few more weeks until a glass of wine will bein my hand, hahaha

    I love this. My dad said the other Sunday on Easter that it’s amazing that we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection around the world in the spring, because Jesus’ resurrection was the best new beginning, the most amazing hinge point in all of history; I love the freshness and the hope that spring brings. It’s amazing to think all those beautiful flowers were just waiting to come out after all the snow and cold days.

  8. Wow I bet you are having a fabulous trip! What I am loving lately is the warmer weather

    what I’m loving? Our oldest goes to his grandparents house on Saturday, which leaves us and me with the 8 and (almost) 6 year old for the day and watching their brotherly-almost best friend-ish bond build, if one goes somewhere, so does the other…and watching the way they care for each other is what I am loving…a few weeks ago when Caleb was sick (almost six year old), Jonathan went to play outside and looked lost the whole time….last night, Jonathan went to a sleep over and C was missing his buddy…they really make me happy
