Things I'm Loving Now

February is the month of love. So...let's talk about some of the things I'm currently loving, ok? Let's see...

I know I am late to the party, but better late than never, right?
I am loving smoothies!
We got a Vitamix for Christmas, and have been making smoothies every day since.
I found some delicious recipes here.

Now this is not a new favorite.
This is the coffee I have been drinking forever.
But...I just discovered this huge container available on Amazon!!!
No more running to the store for those tiny boxes!!!

This is my "signature fragrance".
It is Amazing Grace from Philosophy.
It is available many places...online, Sephora, QVC even.
I love this scent.
Because...it doesn't smell like perfume.
It just smells good.
Every time I wear it, I am told that I smell good.
It is also the scent that my kids say, "smells like Mom."
And that is what I love the most. 

I hesitate to refer to them as pajamas.
I prefer loungewear.
Or everyday wear.
Or...the most comfortable things I wear around the house.
I got them at Gap, and they are currently on sale!
I wear a large and they fit perfectly. 

Finally...these throw blankets are AMAZING!
We love them.
I gave them for Christmas gifts this year too.
They are sooo soft, but not heavy, and they wash up beautifully.
I found some on Amazon, but the best selection is on their website here.
( The ones we love are the VelvetLoft throw blankets.)

Oh...and of course...I love love love my sweet Mocha!

So there are some things I am loving...
What about you??
I'd love if you would share. : )


  1. I love that your perfume "smells like mom." That is the best thing to me. I will have to check out those blankets!!

  2. Your lounge wear is so cute!! I really need to up my pj/loungewear game...I usually look like a homeless woman who scrounged something out of the Goodwill donation bag...

  3. I love sweet smelling perfume and your lounge wear. I bought a couple of throws/blankets at Christmas and I love the softness.

  4. I have that perfume, too, and carry it in my purse. I have a winter scent and a summer scent. Grace is my summer scent...along with Beach-depending on what I am doing. My kids always associate Tuscan per Dona with me because that is all I wore for 25 years. Now it is my winter fragrance...and a new one my daughter-in-law bought me- Stella (double love because that was my grandmother's name).

    "My" coffee is Dunkin Donuts original. I have used it for years. My mom always drank Maxwell house. xo Diana

  5. I bought Amazing Grace for my Niece, I need to get some for myself:) I love the light scent! I have lots of leggings and shirts that can be worn as PJs or ALL day wear! I use Maxwell House but just regular light taste. I will go check out those throws, gotta have one! Thanks for the tips:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  6. I love the entire Grace line. Love your loungewear. So cute. Those throws look amazing.

  7. Oh wow! I love seeing all your favorites! Just this morning I was thinking about doing a post on this very topic! So much to love in February! ♥ I adore your "lounge wear"! Looks so comfy!!! Good for you you making smoothies everyday! I should do it more often. I hear the Vitamix is amazing! And of course...Amazing Grace...love it!!! Happy Wednesday, my friend! It's snowing here today! ♥

  8. I wear Angel and my kids refer to it as mom scent. Cute jammies

  9. Yes, yes, yes! I think you should do a post like this every month! All these things are my favorite, too . . . especially the blankets, your perfume, and those pjs! Oops I mean loungewear. :)

  10. I am loving technology at the moment so that I am able to keep in touch with my family. When I was talking to my young Grandson Bertie on the phone he said, hang up Granny and I will Skype you so I can see your beautiful face. It doesn't get any better than that.

  11. Great winter like things to love. I have a blanket/throw like that and I love it. I also have a heated throw and for my aching body...it has been great and used all winter so far.

  12. Hi Billie Jo, I wanted to say hi and thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. I've added you to my reading list; I really like your blog and the things you share here. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. Hmm..things I love right now include my Trader Joe's Irish Breakfast tea that I drink every single morning, my fruit and nut trail mix from Costco and my Ferrero Rocher candy that I got for Christmas...what's left of it. :)

  13. Darling lounge wear, Billie Jo. I think we should be comfortable in our homes with all of our favorites surrounding us. Mine would be, a pot of Twinings Earl Grey tea, a scone with jam and a good book by the fire. My signature fragrance is Amazing Grace as well. It's such a soft and feminine scent. ♥

  14. I love amazing grace as well...love it!!

  15. What a neat post! One of these days, if I can borrow my daughter's camera, I might do one like it.

  16. Your new lounge wear is really cute. I stay home a lot and love getting new pj's. Lately, I'm like Beth mentioned above... looking more like a bag lady. ha ha! I'd have to say candles are my thing right now; I love for the house to smell good.

  17. I love your loungewear! If I am at home, and we don't have anyone over, I am in one of my flannel night gowns. I have the same one, in four colors. I also love coffee, but because I drink it with a lot of half & half, I have cut down to one cup per day. I'm also loving chamomile tea. It truly helps with my anxiety and I drink about 3-4 cups per day. I just purchase the organic loose Chamomile tea from Amazon. I get it in a one pound bag. I also love my Youtube, I subscribe to quite a few truly inspirational channels. What a fun post this was! I may have to do one of my blog. Hugs to you! Juli

  18. I love those jammies! And that mug. :)

  19. I love much everything you love...my post today is about a few of my favorite thrift finds....

  20. Love this post and everything in it!! I think I need to visit Gap as my general loungewear in the cold evenings is an old robe and blankets! And you know I love M&MS! :)

  21. YOur loungewear is adorable and looks so comfy. :) I love a good throw and have lots of them scattered around the house for us to use. Unfortunately the cats also love them and knead them to death causing all kinds of snags and loose threads. This might sound strange, but I am loving my small Kate Spade crossbody purse that I found that the thrift store a couple of months back. It is just the right size for me to throw in a small wallet, my keys, a nail file (I have lots of "nail emergencies"), a lipstick, my phone and a few other small items. It is lightweight and does not dig into my should or arm. :)

  22. I'm feeling the love! Your lounge wear is really cute and who doesn't like a cozy blanket to cuddle up in. A welcome gift I'm sure! I love anything that smells good so I'm sure I would love you as well!!
    Have a great weekend Billie Jo!

  23. I love my little Pearl, my 4.5lb papillon! I love coffee...and that loungewear is so cute...I may have to go scout it out at Gap! ♥

  24. That's my signature perfume too!! My mom buys it every year for me! We've been on a smoothie kick also. One a day...sometimes twice! Yum!
    Life's way too short for a bad cup of coffee is my motto! This mama loves her coffee, especially peppermint mocha flavored! ;)

    I hope you have a cozy filled weekend!

    Hugs, Amy

  25. I've smelled that perfume -- I like it too but haven't bought any. That whole line is nice. Love smoothies - I'm trying to make them almost every day and adding spinach and chia, etc. with lots of berries and greek yogurt. What am I loving right now . . . well definitely NOTHING about our weather now that we have over a foot of snow on the ground so let's see . . . I'm loving that I work from home and don't have to go out in this awful mess!

  26. Smoothies - yum!! Coffee - bring it on!! Loungewear - love them!!


Thanks so much for saying hello!
