BEB Favorites: March 2019
It’s the end of the month and, as expected, March is going out like a lamb, with some super nice weather expected here this weekend. Bring it on!
Since it’s the last week of the month, it’s time to round up all of things I’ve been loving for the last month or so. Many of these today are things I’ve been using and loving since the beginning of the year, and I’m super excited to share with you…
My March 2019 Favorites
Here are the things I’m loving this month!
Athleta Rain Drop Jacket – I was desperately in need of a new rain jacket and spotted this one from Athleta. The reviews were a little mixed and I honestly wasn’t sure how it would fit since I’m pretty short (5’1″) and I was afraid it might look frumpy. I ordered the petite size small (I usually wear a medium but based on reviews it seemed to run big), and it was a good choice – it fit perfectly and it is, by far, the cutest rain jacket I have ever owned! It’s super flattering, and I’m so thrilled to have a nice lightweight jacket that looks nice and is comfortable.
Barney Butter Crunchy Almond Butter – I’ve been buying Barney Butter almond butter (the creamy variety) for at least a couple of years now since it’s one of the only ones that Joseph can eat (many of them, although made in peanut-free facilities, could contain other tree nuts). On a whim, I grabbed a jar of crunchy a few years ago and I. AM. HOOKED. I shouldn’t be surprised since I’ve always loved crunchy peanut butter, but this stuff is so good. My favorite way to eat it is slathered on a rice cake, or by the spoonful.
The North Face Boys Thermoball Hoodie Jackets – Both of the boys had these Thermoball jackets throughout the winter, and I was thrilled with how well they wore. The jackets are super lightweight but very warm, which is perfect when you’re dealing with car seats (no need to take off/put on heavy jackets). Highly recommend!
KiwiCo Crates – My sister got a three-month subscription to these boxes for each of the boys for Christmas, and they have been a massive hit. They are tailored to their ages and each include three different activities per box, and the boys love them! Some things we’ve done are stained glass pictures, a tie-dyed tote bag, a rainbow pillow, and a fishing game (that came in Dominic’s but both boys loved it). Each box has a theme and comes with everything you need to do the projects, as well as instructions for parents and an extra booklet with additional information on the theme. There are boxes for everyone from toddlers, school-age kids, teenagers, and even adults!
Thermos Funtainer 12-Ounce Bottle – I bought a couple of these for Joseph and Dominic to use in the car since we’ve moved to big-kid open cups when we’re eating at the table, and they’re fantastic. There’s a little handle that pops up on top you can use to carry it, it doesn’t leak at all, and water stays cold. Big fans!
Feeding Littles – I recently came across the Instagram account @feedinglittles and it is fantastic! They have courses for infant and toddler feeding, which I have not purchased, but the amount of free information they have on Instagram and on their website/blog is so great. I wish I had found them when Joseph was a baby! Lots of tips on providing a variety of foods at meals and snacks, navigating picky eating, etc. Currently obsessed with it.
Billy Joel: Live at Shea Stadium – I’ve mentioned before that I am a huge Billy Joel fan and have seen him in concert a few times; I recently found this concert on Amazon Prime, and it is so wonderfully done! If you’re a fan and haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend!
Before Breakfast Podcast – I’m probably living under a rock because I’ve just heard about Laura Vanderkam recently, and I’ve become totally engrossed in all of her time management tips, as well as the podcast she just launched. I love it because they are all just 5 to 7 minutes long, which makes for an easy listen while I’m getting dressed in the morning. Feeling so inspired to take control of my time!
That’s a wrap with what I’ve been loving recently! I would love to hear about some of your new favorites as well; share them in the comments below!
