Lately on Instagram


I’ve finally been stepping up my Instagram and posting nearly daily, sometimes multiple times a day! For those of you that don’t follow me, you should! You can find me @sayhellonature where I post all kinds of fun pictures from my day to day life.

From left to right, top to bottom:

Cap’N Crunch Cinnabon Delights | I tried these delicious morsels over the weekend when stopped by Taco Bell and HOLY MOLY – they are amazing. I didn’t know something so good could come from Taco Bell.

Diffuser | While I’ve been using essential oils for awhile now, I have never owned a diffused. Not sure why, but I finally got one and I am in love with it. I also got some new essential oil blends that have been great for my allergies! It took hours of research to find the perfect one that had a light, auto-off and decent tank size – but it was worth it! It’s the perfect little diffuser for our house. If you’d like the diffuser I got, you can find it on Amazon.

Cherry Tomatoes | Out of the couple things we’ve planted this year, our cherry tomatoes are doing the best! Too bad I don’t eat them – more for Nathan, I guess!

Happy Camper Long Sleeve Shirt | At least once a year, Zulily has a national park sale for clothing and my bank account cries a little bit. This year was no different. I got this awesome shirt along with a handful of others that are perfect for our outdoor adventures! The sale is over for this year, but they still have tons of awesome deals!

Farmer’s Market Photo Booth | We don’t get to go to our old Farmer’s Market very often so I was really excited when we got to go a few weeks ago! They had so many new booths, including this awesome photo booth.

Carnival | Our little town puts on a Mardi Gras festival every year and it just so happens to be right across the street from us! So for a few nights, this was the few from our front porch. Love it!

Homemade Bread | When we went to Chicago, we stopped by a Whole Foods and tried a Seeduction bread that made me love carbs even more than I already do. It didn’t take long for me to find a  copycat recipe online so this was my first attempt at non-bread machine bread. It was SO good! A little flat, but the best tasting bread I’ve ever made by far.

Vibram FiveFinger Shoes | No lie – I was super worried I wouldn’t like these Vibram shoes. But I wanted to love them because I hate shoes and socks and thought that these may be that perfect middle ground. And they are. They fit perfectly and feel like sturdy toe socks. Super comfy! Plus Amazon had a massive 30% off sale on these and some other hiking shoes that I got so how could I say no?!

Flowers | When fresh flowers from the Farmer’s Market are only $5, you don’t say no.

Sunny Days | One of my favorite things about our house is how much sun we get. Our kitchen and mud room get it in the morning while our living room and bedroom get it in the afternoon. This also happens to be one of Sookie’s favorite things about our house. She spends most of her day napping in the different rooms where the sun is most prevalent throughout the day.

Other than our bathroom redo which is so close to being done, that kinda sums up my life lately! I also just started an awesome Instagram Challenge for August so you can follow along with that (and join in!) with the hashtag #LBTChallenge.
