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!
