happy friday ♥️
all the feels:
Homemade Disinfectant Wipes. I am determined to not let another illness take down this family. I don’t like to buy store bought disinfectant wipes because of how strong the chemicals are. For many of them the label says you should wear gloves when handling them! I found this “recipe” online here. I used a large mason jar and instead of reusable cloths I used paper towels. The ingredients are 1/2 cup water + 1/2 cup vinegar + 6 drops lavender oil + 2 drops of your favorite essential oil (I used orange + lemon) + 1 teaspoon detergent. The lavender oil has natural antibacterial properties! They smell good and they do a good job cleaning up my counters.
Kirkland Chocolate Covered Almonds. These are SO addicting. Costco’s store brand makes the best products. If you are going to have chocolate at least these have almonds for some healthy fat + protein + fiber. Or that’s what I am telling myself…
Stew Leonard’s Simply Italian Marinara: A Stew Leonard’s recently opened up by my mom’s house. I love this grocery store and WISH they were building one by me… instead of another pharmacy and gas station. 😑 I picked up this sauce because it has no added sugar. I think it was $5.99 which is expensive for sauce, but for a quick dinner I like it. J is the Italian man who makes us sauce, this Dutch girl is just fine with the jar 🙂
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Mine will be spent at the hospital but I have some fun blog posts lined up for the next couple of days!
