Things I'm Loving Now

Well, besides our new home, which I will share with you as soon as we unpack a few more boxes. Here are a few very random things I am currently loving...

~ This White Tea and Sage Foaming Hand Soap from Bath and Body
It smells so good.
So fresh.

So amazing that I keep it in the bathroom and in the kitchen.

~ My new favorite T shirt from Life is Good
The Easter Bunny brought this for me this year!
I always get a couple of shirts from Life is Good each spring.
They are soft, fashionable, durable, and comfortable.
And cozy, of course.

~ My new tongue scraper
Ok. Stay with me here.
Do you use a tongue scraper?
If not, please try this one.
It will change your life.
That's all.

~ This Mocha Frappe Mix
I know I wrote about this last week, but it bears repeating.
Marian and I had more than one this past weekend.
Simply add ice, milk and a scoop of the mix into a blender.
Top with whipped cream.
And enjoy.

~ Our Vitamix 
This is a serious machine.
It is pricey, but worth every single penny.
I use it every morning to make smoothies.
And most afternoons to make my frappe.
We purchased ours from QVC, and they were exceptional with customer service.

~Our newest card game
This is so fun!
It is unlike Uno in that it causes you to think a bit more.
It is actually great practice in basic math facts for kids without them even realizing it!

We may have played nine games this weekend.
And had Marian not had to leave, we would have played more.

So there you are.
Just a few random things I am loving around here lately.
What are you loving, my friends?
I'd love to know!

Thanks for visiting.
Have a cozy day!


  1. Yes, I am obsessed with that soap! It smells amazing. The Easter Bunny sure did a great job picking out that shirt for you. :)

  2. I haven't tried a tongue scraper but I do brush my tongue with my toothbrush sometimes. I will have to look for the Dos card game; we've played so much Uno over the years, I can barely stand it anymore! Time for something new. :)

  3. Oh my gosh! Yes the tongue scraper. I have used one forever and switched to the Ora-Brush one a few years ago. Such a difference in the cleanliness of my mouth! My kids are still getting the hang of Uno but it's good to hear that Dos is fun! I actually have been curious!

  4. Enjoyed seeing the things that you like and enjoy. They are a good change from unpacking boxes for sure. I have never used a tongue scraper but may have to give this one a try, and I definitely want the Mocha mix!

  5. Can't wait to hear and see more about your new place! Been very hectic around here. Take care sweetie!

  6. Thanks for sharing these! I'm always interested in what products people are enjoying. I brush my tongue every morning with my toothbrush but perhaps I need to look into the scraper.


  8. Good stuff here! I am always happy to hear about products others love!

  9. Thanks for sharing your favorites, Billie Jo. I've never used a tongue scraper--where have I been? Your mocha mix looks delicious. I love to try new soaps and must look for the white tea and sage at BBWs. Cute t-shirt. ♥

  10. You've got some great favorites right now. I like that fragrance of Dawn, too. I got a Kitchen Aid blender for Christmas that has worked well for everything the kids have used it for and the few things that I have. I need to start making some frappes again. I bet that mix would be great.

    I like the clean look of your blog!

  11. I love the marble tray that you keep the soap inside! Hugs. Juli

  12. I can't wait to see more of your new home. What fun!! I haven't tried that scent of soap, next time I'm at the mall, I'll have to go buy me a bottle. Bath and Body Works is my favorite store, its rather dangerous if you ask me. Ha! ;)
    That mocha mix...I have got to find. I love iced coffee mocha flavored, so yeah....need that too.
    I've been loving the Jergen's Original scent lotion. It make your hands so soft and it reminds me of my grandma. A cherry almond scent. Its so lovely.

    I hope you have a delightful week my friend!

    Thinking of you...

  13. Hi Billie Jo - wow, I have been out of the Blogland loop again and really need to catch up. I had no idea you were moving. Will have to look for pictures of your new place. Thanks for sharing all these fun things you are enjoying! I hope things are going well. Will be back to visit again soon!

  14. Hi Billie Jo~

    Love all of your favorite things today! Anything from, Bath & Body Works is on my "I love" list. I have never heard of DOS, I will definitely check it out, we love to play cards. I can't use a tongue scraper, it makes me gag every time!

    Looks like you are settling in nicely, I can tell it feels like home!

    Have a wonderful week!

    Hugs and Love,

  15. I'm loving my daffodils that are on the front porch. This is the first year I've planed bulbs in a pot and they are so fun to come home to every day! I'm also loving my large suitcase that's open and just waiting for me to fill it for our vacation next week! (A two week, cross-country road trip!)

  16. I am loving LIFE at the moment and am grateful. Those frappes look delicious...

  17. I am always looking for good hand soap:) I will certainly give that one a try! Pink DAWN? How did I miss that:o) Thanks for the tips on the tongue scraper, I will try that one too! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  18. You're such a kindred soul my Dear. ;) I've been loving that soap and a lot of the new ones at B&B lately too! And Annie and I love Uno so now I'm going to have to get Dos and give us some new fun. Love your tips always!! PS: Super cute shirt xoxo

  19. I might need to make a trip to pick up some of the hand soap...you sold me on it!
    I love getting a peak into your new and beautiful home!!

  20. I can't wait to try that soap...and the shirt is adorable.Going to their site and maybe order one....

  21. Good morning - my phone went crazy and I lost my contacts. Send me a text when you have time .....

  22. That t-shirt is hilarious.
    I know my girls would love that since they are the resident smoothie makers here. I'm going to try that mix you mentioned.
    I always love visiting you here. Makes me smile in the morning.

  23. Gotta love that Dawn - no other compares! Everyone seems to like their Vitamixes - so cool - and a nice color too! Can't wait to see your new home.

  24. So many goodies here! I love them all! I must find that soap next time I go to Bath & Body. It sounds amazing! Also LOVE your new shirt! So cute!!!!

  25. I like the caption on your Top "Smoothie Operator"
    It's a very nice one

  29. Researchers in the U.S. carried out a study that assessed the link between coffee consumption and Parkinson's disease risk. The authors of the study concluded that "higher coffee and caffeine intake is associated with a significantly lower incidence of Parkinson's disease".


Thanks so much for saying hello!
