Current Obsessions

I'm not sure why, but I have been stumbling upon things lately that I am obsessing over. Like can't put them down obsessing. Like can't stop reading obsessing. Mike is feeling it too!

**My first obsession is this seriously addicting almond butter made by Wild Friends. They had samples at Costco the other day and I was that person that left and came back pretending they didn't recognize me. I was seriously stumped one which "butter" to choose from, but ultimately went with the espresso from my then lack of coffee. I have yet to regret that decision. Warning: do not eat at night for dessert. You will not fall asleep for hours.

**Second obsession is this new cookbook we bought last weekend. I can't stop flipping through the pages! We plan on cooking up one or five of these recipes this weekend. Another obsession is this blog by one of the cookbook's authors. I'm hooked.

**My third obsession is with Ascot & Hart. It started with me finding @jenlovescove on Instagram. Then she popped up the explore section as recommended for Mike to follow. From there we "stalked" her (stalked sounds way too creepy) and her family and fell in love. It was actually Mike who reached out to her about a shirt her husband was wearing. From then on we have been obsessing over their shirts. Especially the Trust Your Guts ones. Oh, and their sunglass, shoes and hats. We love it all.

**Lastly, I found this trick through another Instagrammer I recently stumbled upon, @jennaskitchen. Her posts are really inspiring and she did the Whole30 challenge, which made me and Mike that much more excited to start it after our Cabo trip. We try to eat hardboiled eggs in the morning. Me with my juice and Mike with fruits or veggies. I have never baked my eggs, but she recommended it so I was ready to test it out. It was awesome and the eggs were SO easy to peel! All you do is put your eggs in a muffin tin. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Put your eggs in for 30 minutes and then when you pull them out put them in a bowl of ice water immediately. And poof! Perfect hard boiled eggs. Thanks for the tip, Jenna!

I know my list of obsessions will continue to grow and I will continue to post about them:) I would love to see what your current obsessions are, so please share and let me obsess with you!
