I was going to share a post about some of my favorite things in Asheville including an itinerary for a weekend trip today, but I somehow made the post more complicated than I intended (why do I always do that to myself!!??) and it's not done yet. I do so many travel posts on places I just visit, so I thought it would be fun to write some travel posts for the place I actually know best. I decided to make it extra special and collect a few more photos before it publishes. So the good news is I get to eat at some of my favorite places to get photos.... the bad news is y'all are going to have to wait a few weeks for that post.
Since it's been way to long since I've shared some of my random favorites, I decided today was the perfect day to share a new Things I'm Loving Lately! I hope you enjoy. 🙂
Things I'm Loving Lately 39
I've been on a serious smoothie bowl bender lately. I can't get enough and I'm SO excited about the one I put together for tomorrow's recipe post. Here's a sneak peak. It is SO good. 🙂
This year I've been trying to incorporate different superfoods in my diet. I recently learned about how powerful Goji Berries can be, especially for folks on a plant based diet. I bought these off Amazon and have been using them as a topping for my oatmeal and smoothie bowls. You only use a little at a time, so the bag lasts a while. They are tart, chewy and delicious. They are full of antioxidants, vitamin A, iron and fiber!
If you missed yesterday's post about a fabulous grocery delivery option in Asheville, you have to check it out. I've had a busy few weeks and grocery delivery has saved my day a few times. Even if you aren't in Asheville the company is nationwide and is a total game changer.
Early Spring Flowers
Our weather in the mountains has been all over the place the past few weeks, but those warm February days brought out some early spring flowers. These Hyacinth made an appearance this weekend in my yard and I love them. There is something so magical about the first flowers of spring.
Stone Shower Floors
The bathroom is not done yet, but I'm loving the stone floor I picked out! It's actual river rocks instead of tile. Now I just have to decide on the grout color.... which I never thought would be a hard thing to do... but it is.
New Door Decor
I was walking around HomeGoods the other day and came across this adorable sign and wreath. I decided it was just what I needed to spruce up the side door to my house. Now I'm just waiting for the workers to stop making a mess before I put it up. HomeGoods is basically like crack for my shopping habit! I go in and can't stop myself from getting something.
Please ignore the giant mess around the rest of the table. Everything that used to be in my bedroom is still in my dining room from the remodel.
I hope y'all have a great day! Come back tomorrow for that new smoothie bowl recipe.

What are you loving lately?
Wow! stone shower floor looks very unique. I'm a big fan of the stone shower floor. I think they look great and they are super easy to clean.

I feel like all home decisions like that are tricky as you don’t want to choose something you’ll regret! Your floor is so cool though!
We love our stone floor in our bathroom and I know you will too my advise is to not go to light with the grout because it will be harder to keep clean

That floor looks so fun! I'd love that in my bathroom. And smoothie bowls are the best - yours looks so tasty!
I love that stone you picked out for the bathroom - beautiful! I would have a hard time deciding on grout too 😉
A smoothie bowl sounds really good right now!

LIDL...it’s ALDI which better selection of produce and the store is a little nicer.
Amber Irwin says
They are great things. I like the smoothie bowl and especially the stone floor in the shower. It would be really great when having it in home 😀
My stones are are brown river rock so I decided to go with a tan grout to accentuate the darker stones. If I had your color stones I would personally go with grey grout to accentuate the beautiful black and white.

Home Goods is the best but the worst at the same time lol. I walk in for one thing and then end up spending way too much money! The pineapple welcome sign is absolutely adorable and now I want to check my local Home Goods for it!
The stone looks so cool! Maybe a grey grout?
Lately I was really into smoothies. But then the weather went back to cold so I'm turned off from them again. Hopefully it'll warm up and I can enjoy them again soon.
That smoothie bowl looks delicious. It is so colorful and looks appetizing. Like they say we eat with our eyes. Love the stone you picked out for you shower floor.
That smoothie bowl looks fantastic. Oh, and you’re going to love your new river rock shower floor. We have it in the master bedroom shower. It took a few days for my feet to adjust to it but now I just LOVE it. You will too!
Did you pick a grout that matches it or is lighter for contrast?
I may have to try smoothie bowls...this one looks so good! Love your new sign, I may have to visit Home Goods. My daughter -in-law and I both love anything pineapple! Hope you have a great day
This comment is gonna sound super disjointed, but (1) I love Asheville! I hope I can go visit again someday! *-* (2) that bathroom tile is awesome! <3 (3) I really need to unearth my goji berries so I can make that--it looks delicious! :]!
I love everything in this post! That smoothie bowl looks so tasty.

That fruit looks really good for the smoothie bowl.
I like that bathroom stone floor.
