10 Favorite Things

Updated: Oct 23

I enjoyed writing 10 Things Sunday for A Beautiful Mess so much that I decided to include a very identical post on my blog. Let me know if you have any better ideas for a title! Lol.

I'm at Table Rock Lake this weekend celebrating an early birthday with family. They rented a couple cabins a few seconds away from my grandparent's old cabin and the dock that's been in our family since the 1960s.

My brain is flooded with so many good memories when I come here. Which honestly isn't enough for a place that's only an hour away from my house.

That's right. I had a Snoopy rod and everything. I come from a family of avid fisherman (and women) and my Dad taught me how to catch my first bass when I was five. My love for fishing hasn't continued with age, but I still love to be on the water. With my SPF 70 on, of course.

Here are a few things I've been into lately:

  1. I ordered a set of faux olive trees for my office/den and they look so realistic! I'm going to thrift some large pots to fill with real soil to "up" the realistic factor even more. I learned this trick from Elsie and I've been wanting to try it ever since..

  2. I'm one of those people who can eat the same thing for breakfast everyday for months until I finally get sick of it. My new breakfast routine is a healthy version of peanut butter & jelly oatmeal. It's REALLY GOOD. I combine gluten-free oats with a scoop of natural peanut butter, a handful of organic blueberries, add some water, and pop it in the microwave. Boom. Done and done.

  3. This is my go-to affordable rug for virtually any room. It's very simple and it looks like shag carpet. I have the green rug in my living room and the pale orange color in my spare room.

  4. I can't wait to make this soup recipe inspired by one of the best Middle Eastern restaurants in Kansas City. It's comforting and delicious.

  5. I organized the heck out of my hall closet last month, and seeing this colorful set of storage bins on the shelves makes my brain extra happy.

  6. I will take several pairs of Halloween slippers, please.

  7. This Instagram account is pure gold.

  8. My doctor recommended this probiotic (especially for PMS or PMDD) and I can already tell a difference after taking it for the past month. Thank God.

  9. I'm really into vintage faux flowers right now, and bought several clusters of these tiny forget-me-nots (in all three colors). They're so cute.

  10. I love a good affordable phone case that I can easily switch out when mine is starting to look dingy. I picked this sparkly butterfly one, just because.

Thank you for following along! This has been really fun and therapeutic for me so far. If you're curious why I decided to start a blog (when I didn't plan to at all) you can read my first post here.

xoxo, Jacki
