Three on Thursday: Things I Can't Get Enough Of

Once again, I'm following Stephanie's lead and posting three more things I'm loving right now. 

1.) Pentel EnerGel pens

I'm left-handed and have therefore never been able to use gel pens without smearing ink all over my hand and the page.  I'm going to go ahead and admit that I'm a complete nerd (as if you couldn't already tell) because I was researching the best pens to use in my planner and stumbled upon a YouTube video that gave me all the information I needed.  I immediately ordered some Pentel EnerGel pens from Amazon, and I'm in love!  I chose the needle tip 0.5 mm, and they've suited my needs perfectly.  They dry so fast that I never have any issues with smearing.  I also think they make my handwriting look better, so that's an added bonus.

2.) Manduka Journey ON Commuter Yoga Mat Strap

I took the plunge and ordered a yoga mat from Manduka last year.  If you're not familiar with the company, I'll just say that their mats are expensive (mine was over $100), but extremely durable and well worth the initial investment.  (Side note: I actually got my mat for free because I ordered it using a gift card!)  My old yoga mat was pretty thin (which was one of the main reasons I wanted/needed a new one), but easy to just roll up and tuck under my arm for class.  My Manduka mat ... Not so much.  I ordered this strap in odyssey (blue and grey) to match my mat, and I love it!  It makes carting my mat around much easier, and it has some light padding for your shoulder so the strap never digs in.  I also like that it's quiet, unlike some of the yoga mat straps that use velcro.  I'm usually early to my yoga classes, but if I get stuck in traffic or held up at work, it's nice to know I can get set up without disturbing the other people in the class.

3.) Sweet potato enchiladas skillet casserole

As I mentioned in my last post, Eric and I have been eating vegetarian meals a lot lately.  We tried this recipe last week, and it was delicious!  It was also an easy one-pot meal ... And who doesn't love those?  I did make a few changes to the original recipe, though.  If you'd like to see what I did differently, my notes can be found once you click on my pin.  I definitely recommend making this if you're trying to fit more vegetables into your diet (or if you're simply looking for a quick and easy meal for a weeknight).

And, just to be completely transparent, I'm not making any money if you click on any of these links.  I'm linking these things because I genuinely love them and want to give you an opportunity to purchase and/or try them if you're interested.  Please let me know if you decide to try any of these things, or, if you already have, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
