Weekend Recap + What’s in my Purple Box?

Hey everyone! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Ours was a typical one: fast-paced Saturday running errands (Garrett drives and I crochet like crazy in the car 😉 I’m making lots of progress on Baby #2’s blanket!), and a lazier Sunday running through the sprinklers in the backyard and staying close to home.

We had dinner with friends Saturday (it was soo nice not to cook!) and I made a yummy egg scramble for Sunday’s breakfast.


Salmon & kale! Does it get any better?!


Eggs, bratwurst and cheddar – simple and delicious!


On my way to a fun Starbucks date with a friend this weekend 🙂

I have been on a HUGE cleaning kick lately, and I cleaned all the shelves in the fridge this weekend. Doesn’t the whole kitchen feel cleaner after the fridge shelves are scrubbed and shiny?! Remind me to clean my fridge more often…it’s totally worth it! Haha! (PS: It’s too early for nesting, I’m only 25 weeks along! I don’t know where this cleaning spree came from.) Would anyone want to read a “What’s in My Fridge?” post in the future?? I’ve been thinking about doing one.


I put tacos on the meal plan for Sunday night, and I discovered I LOVE refried beans in my tacos! Why didn’t I try this before?! Aldi’s organic refried beans have a very short, real food ingredients list and great flavor.


Here’s the rest of this week’s meal plan:

M: White Chicken Chili

T: Leftovers

W: Chicken Parmesan (with green beans)

R: Slow Cooker Stupid Easy Chicken

F: Taco Casserole

S: Leftovers

Today I’m starting a fun new series today that I’ll add to every month – what’s in my purple box?

Purple Box 1

See how Judith photobombed this pic from the couch? 😀

To get the best discount on essential oils and to qualify for commission as I share them with others, I place a Loyalty Rewards Order every single month with dōTERRA. Every month for the past 4.5 years I’ve placed an order – and I have very little “inventory” or extra products on hand. They get put to work as soon as they come in the door!


August 2016 Box:

  1. OnGuard Laundry Detergent
  2. Lifelong Vitality supplements (for me – perfect whole food prenatal with folate from lemon peel!)
  3. Daily Nutrient Pack supplements + Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex (for Garrett)
  4. Breathe throat drops
  5. OnGuard throat drops
  6. OnGuard Natural Whitening Toothpaste x2
  7. Natural Deodorant
  8. 15ml Lemon essential oil
  9. 15ml Lavender essential oil
  10. 15ml Peppermint essential oil

What did I get for FREE this month? Laundry detergent, Breathe throat drops, both bottles of toothpaste, Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint eo’s – that’s a $107.50 wholesale/$143.32 retail value!

How many free product credits did I earn this month? Let’s do the math: 49.2 (30% of 164 PV that I purchased this month) + 7 (100% of what I paid for shipping) = 56.2 free product credits to spend like cash, dollar for dollar, next month!

The Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint were free because of a promotion going on now (EXPIRES WEDNESDAY NIGHT 8/31/16) in which every 160 PV (like $160) order receives those oils for free. To get yours, go to my website here. Click “Join & Save” at the top to get even more discounts. Those 3 oils are worth over $60, so stock up on them while they’re free!

    Since alot of our meal planning can begin with what we have on hand in the fridge, I think an article of “what’s in your fridge” would be great!
