HAPPY LAST DAY OF JANUARY!!!
We made it! Does anyone else feel like that? T.S. Eliot had it all wrong–January is the cruelest month. I feel like it always goes sooo slowly in the aftermath of Christmas and with all of the cold, gray days. However, I am a little biased because I LOVE February (my birthday month! Groundhog Day! Valentine’s Day! Hearts are my favorite), so I always want to get January over with!
In honor of the last day of this month, I wanted to feature four of the items that helped get me through this slow month! Here are my January Favorites:
1) Amazing Applesauce (From Trader Joe’s…of course)
Seriously y’all, this stuff is INSANE. I eat some with my breakfast every single morning. I like to eat it straight out of the jar because it feels illicit. I think it tastes better that way!
While it is SUPER delicious cold. I plan to add a sprinkle of cinnamon and warm it up in the microwave = instant (and totally paleo) apple pie filling!
2) Tulips (From Chase, By Chase, For Chase)
When we were running errands, Chase picked up this bouquet of tulips and said: “These are NOT for you, they are for me.” Basically, he knew the frugal frog he married would say that we did not need to spend $ on superfluous flowers—he knows me too well. While I am always resistant to buying flowers because they seem impractical, they add such JOY to our tiny apartment. I need to make it a point to pick up a bouquet more often!
Sugar cookie tea is my current fave–so yummy. I have been combining one flavored tea with a regular black tea bag. I am avoiding sweeteners (especially artificial) and the sugar cookie helps add natural sweetness. Nothing warms me up quite so well as hot tea.
4) Williams-Sonoma linens!
Williams-Sonoma had their annual sale and I picked up amazing linens on super sale. I loooove linens. They make me happy! I realize I am SUPER lame, but I actually have yet to use them. I just look at them, all pretty and crisp. I have been day-dreaming about using them in our new house…if we get it!
What are you loving right now? Are you a January fan? Do you have a favorite month?
