7 Things I Love…

Moving day is creeping upon us. We still have several more rooms to clean out… but all I can say is thank goodness for packers! These guys literally open our cabinets and pack every single little thing for us. They’ll even pack your trash can with trash in it. (Note to self: empty all trash cans!)

The biggest challenge for me has been staying off my feet. It’s hard when there is so much that has to be done. After being on my feet for as little as 20 minutes I can feel I’ve done too much πŸ™

I decided to take advantage of my down time and scour the web for another round of 7 Things I’m Loving. Β Enjoy πŸ™‚

1) Fig Pop Tarts

I love anything with figs in it! As soon as I spotted these Fig Pop Tarts I wanted one immediately! YUM!


2) Blue Amazonite Necklace

I have a thing for blue stone jewelry. I have so much turquoise its embarrassing! I spotting this necklace on Etsy and fell in love πŸ™‚


3) Sticky Stacky Sandwiches

This is such a cute idea!! M refuses to eat a normal sandwich, but… she’ll take the sandwich apart and eat everything separately. These Sticky Stacky Sandwich sticks are perfect for her.


4) Hanging Gardens Tank

Oh how I love this top! It would be perfect for me post baby. It’s a little over my budget right now, but maybe if I start saving all my nickels & dimes I can buy this by the time baby #2 arrives πŸ™‚


5) Balloon Pudding Cups

How cute is this idea!! This is the perfect dessert project to do with the kiddos. I love the idea of dipping the balloons in chocolate and then popping them πŸ™‚ So fun!


6) Cute Thank You Gift!

Love this!! I’m always wracking my brain trying to come up with clever & unique thank you gifts for teachers. Such a clever idea!


7) Mini Taco-n-Tequila

I so wish I could drink tequila (in margarita form) more than anything. But since I can’t, I will continue to stare, admire, and dream of the day when I can enjoy my favorite drink. I spotted this picture on Pinterest and loved it.

    Sarah – I’ve seen plastic skewers that have a rounded edge. Those would be pretty safe for kids πŸ™‚

    I’m stealing your cup idea – love it! It was teacher appreciation week recently, and I totally slacked off doing something for my daughter’s preschool teachers. Hopefully giving them cups like these with Starbucks gift cards will help me redeem myself!

    I love all of those! That necklace is gorgeous. And the mini tacos are so cute! Also, I have one of those cups (for teachers) and I love them. On Amazon they’re infinitely cheaper than the Starbucks ones.

    I love the balloon idea! I made the jello slices in limes this past weekend. They are darling πŸ™‚ I will post them soon. I want to try lemons, too!

    What a wonderful feature, Estela! I’m in the process of moving too, and through the chaos it’s always nice to have a reminder of the things that keep us happy and sane. πŸ™‚ All of these things, especially those fig poptarts, are suddenly my favorites, too!
