It’s time for monthly favorites!

Here is everything we used and loved over the last month…


Ghiradelli Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix – At the end of August, when we found out that Dominic had been deemed in remission, he asked if I could make brownies to celebrate. Um, yes of course! I had planned on making my better-than-box mix brownies and was stopping at Costco but they did not have the Dutch cocoa that they usually carry, so I grabbed this box of brownie mix in a pinch. And OH MY GOODNESS, best box brownies EVER. They are thick, fudgy, and just all-around perfect. Highly recommend if you want to keep some box mix on hand for emergencies!

Barney Butter Crunchy Almond Butter – I have this on an Amazon subscription; that’s how regularly I go through jars of it! I’ve loved it for a few years now; it’s fantastic on toast, slathered on apple-cinnamon rice cakes, Eggo waffles, graham crackers, toasted pita bread… I’ll eat it on pretty much anything!


OxiClean White Revive Powder – I just started using this a few weeks ago and LOVE it! It brightened up some whites that had gotten a bit dingy and I swear it takes out every single stain. I’m also a huge fan of the OxiClean gel stain stick; I treat any stain with it as soon as I find it and try to let it sit for at least 24 hours. Using the two together, I haven’t had any stains not come out since I started using this powder.


Owala Kids Flip Water Bottle – I had gotten Dominic one of these over the summer and they were finally back in stock, so I got Joseph and Isabelle each one recently and it is everyone’s favorite water bottle!

Hanes Boxer Briefs – If you have boys, I LOVE the value of these! Dominic was in need of some new underwear, so I gave these a try and he says they are SO comfortable. Win-win!

Adidas Cushioned Quarter Socks – Because everything wears out at the same time, Joseph was suddenly in dire need of socks, and based on reviews, I gave these a try. He is very hard on socks and these have held up wonderfully so far! He also said they are the most comfortable socks I have ever bought him.
