My 2014 Springtime Favorites

IT’S SPRING! OK, while this phrase seems to be meaningless here in Michigan this year, it’s still fun to think about, right? I have to say, I am certainly digging all the pastels I’m seeing in stores…and I’m not one to typically be drawn to pastels. Clearly it has been a LONG winter. Today I’m sharing some of my current springtime favorites to get me in the mood for sunshine.

But what is the sun without a little rain? Which brings me to item #1:

Western Chief Rain Boots

Western Chief Rain Boots - Spring Favorites

These aren’t as “in” as the name brand boots, but they are affordable and most importantly — functional. I don’t know about you other mamas, but I have been a splashing fool already this year. My girls and I all have a pair! Mine {pictured above} wereΒ $25 at Tractor Supply Co. and worth their weight in gold for keeping my feet dry while walking with my minions through puddles. Note: I have VERY narrow feet. These are not made for wide feet. They have lots of fun patterns on Amazon, too! See here.

Reese’s Easter Peanut Butter Eggs Reese's Peanut Butter Easter Eggs These are my absolute favorite candy ever. Seriously. Move over fancy chocolate, this is the way to my heart! The Reese’s Easter Eggs pack a lot more peanut butter than Reese’s cups, therefore, they are my favorite. I usually sneak a few packs each year into my purse and try not to share with anyone πŸ˜‰ The hardest part this time of year is not buying them every time I see them! So.Good.


Asparagus - Spring Favorites

On the opposite end of the health spectrum, I present another spring favorite of mine: Asparagus. It’s in season in Michigan April through June and it is my absolute favorite green veggie. Check out my favorite recipe for maple glazed asparagus here.

Method Squirt & Mop Wood Floor Cleaner

Method Squirt & Mop - Spring Favorites

Spring = spring cleaning, right?! Uh-huh. I love Method products, but this one takes the cake for my favorite! I started using this when we lived in a house with all wood floors. I kick it old school and literally use a cheap mop plus this, and it does the trick for cleaning my floors in a jiffy. I love that it’s environmentally-friendly and does not leave streaks on my floors either. Plus, the smell {almond} is nice.

Lemon Essential Oil

doTerra Lemon Essential Oil - Spring Favorites

This is my absolute favorite essential oil. Just smelling it puts me in a good mood and totally has me thinking spring. I love how long it lasts me, it’s inexpensive, and pretty much can do anything! Four of my favorite uses:

  • As a chemical-free antibacterial hand sanitizer {I love it in the car with the kids if we go to eat}.
  • In homemade cleaning supplies {I use it on my laminate bathroom floors mixed with vinegar}.
  • In water to change-up the flavor. It’s the best energy booster for a preggo like myself!
  • To freshen that load of laundry I almost always forget to throw in the dryer before bed.

So there you have it, folks. A few of my springtime favorites.

What are you digging this spring?

      Mmmm, the Cadbury caramel ones are my favorite!

      I know. Boo to these cold temps. I just want to hit 50’s then I will be so happy!

    Yum…Reese’s peanut butter eggs. The year my son was born (in June), I ate so many of those during the Easter season……and my doctor could tell when I went for my weigh-in!

    • Mrs. Weber says

      Too funny! I have only had a few so far this year, but I am hoping the Easter bunny brings me some πŸ˜‰

    I love the Doterra oils too! When you use it for hand sanitizer, do you just use a drop or 2 straight up or mixed with something? And, I’m curious how you use it in your laundry…a couple drops on one of them before throwing in the dryer?

    • Mrs. Weber says

      I do just put a few drops right on my skin for a santitizer. I also have put it in a spray bottle with water to dilute it for the girls (I also us OnGuard the same way for this purpose). For the laundry, I just drop a few drops on the wet clothes and then toss in the dryer. I’ve also used lavender this way too :) Makes everything (especially towels) smell so fresh!

    You just reminded me I need rain boots! I’m going to buy some now. PS, Amazon has the same pair for $40…so thank you for posting about TS!

    • Mrs. Weber says

      Sure thing! They have lots of cute designs there too. If shipping is too much, let your mom or I know πŸ˜‰ We love visiting there to look at the baby chicks!

      • Sarshie says

        They must have sold out of the other designs because only this one and a pink one are left. So we will have matching rain boots πŸ˜‰ I just paid for shipping because I need them for Opening Day–it’s likely it will rain. Boo.
