New Apartment

If you have been keeping up-to-date with this blog, then you know that Jarrett and I just moved from Virginia Beach to Norfolk, Virginia! We both work in Norfolk and our commute was approximately 30 minutes each direction. We’re now about 10 minutes and life is just grand! Although we downsized square footage a decent amount, being able to walk to restaurants and get to work quickly has been a dream these past two weeks. Plus, its always fun to decorate a new space!

Duck Donuts Partner

Okay, so you probably know that I am obsessed with donuts, just from reading the title of this blog. But, you probably don’t know that I am now a Duck Donuts brand partner! I already loved the company and it’s product, and now I get to share more of the deliciousness with you all! I, personally, consider donuts lifestyle must-haves. Ha!

The new spring key lime flavor is so good, but it ends today, April 16th! If you are not familiar with Duck Donuts, they make fresh, warm vanilla cake donuts that you can top with whatever your little heart desires. There are seasonal flavors and classics that stay in rotation year-round.

Keds Slip-On Shoes

For the past several months, I have been in desperate need of new work shoes. I am a physical therapist and stand/walk 80% of my shift. So, the flats I was wearing, while cute and pretty good, were just not enough support for my tired little feet.

Jarrett and I went to DSW when we both had holes in our shoes (sad, I know), and I found these Keds! These slip-ons have been the most comfortable shoes EVER! Plus, they are super cute with my work clothes, and with jeans on the weekend. Believe me, you need these in every color.

I would definitely consider these shoes a lifestyle must-have. Even if you don’t stand or walk a lot during the day, these feel like walking on clouds.

Lillie Eats and Tells

Back when I did the Madeline Moves “Tighter Together” challenge*, I was introduced to Lillie Eats and Tells. Lillie is a food blogger that makes macro-friendly, yet incredibly delicious recipes! One main thing that I love is that she inputs her recipes into MyFitnessPal, which is the app I use to track macros. It makes it so easy!

Jarrett and I had her Skinny Creamy Chicken Enchiladas last night and they were a huge hit! All I did was give Jarrett flour tortillas, while I used the extra thin corn tortillas noted in her recipe.

Other favorites have included: Lavash Pizzas, BBQ Pulled Pork, and Moroccan Chicken Skewers.

The Joseph’s Lavash wraps are kind of hard to find though! Walmart Supercenters have them or you can purchase them here. They are 100% worth the effort to acquire.

Crate and Barrel Home Decor

Now that we are in our new apartment and the urge for updated home decor is really real, I did some shopping on Crate and Barrel! We had gift cards left from our wedding last year, which is my main reason for shopping there. While I love Crate and Barrel, the pieces are not typically within our current budget. So, it was a nice treat to be able to “splurge” on a few new decorations.

I chose these candles for our glass hurricanes! This wicker basket and these glass canisters will be perfect for cute, extra storage in our bathroom. And I always love OXO products, so these cereal dispensers will work perfectly.

Here are a few other things I would have loved to purchase: Artificial Snake Plant, Pink Pattern Pillows, and these Oval Rattam Baskets.
