Things I Loved In 2022
In 2022, I had some things in my life that helped this just work better and smoother. Here are some of the items that I LOVED in 2022.
Roomba - This is something I've grown to love this year. I swear it makes cleaning so much easier. It's like having a little robotic maid. Well, guess it's the same. Definitely reccomend it.
Roomba Replacement Kit - Forget about ordering straight from the company for parts. Earlier in 2022, my Roomba stopped working and I couldn't figure out what was wrong but it kept saying I needed to clean out the brush. After cleaning it out and putting it back in, it still wasn't happy. So I got this kit and it was easy to replace. The moment I put the new brushes in, boom it started working again. They recommend changing brushes every so often.
Alarm Clock - This alarm clock is a part of my daily night routine. I love it. You can set the sunset setting on a timer with some relaxing sounds. Mine sounds like a crackling fire while camping. I set it for 30 mins and I'm usually sleeping before it turns out. I also love how the alarm goes off in the morning. Sometimes I'm awake before the alarm goes off, because the light gets brighter and brighter as it gets closer to your wake up alarm time. Brightens like a sun rise. :)
Bullet Journal - This is the set I have. I love that it's got the dots inside so it's easy to sketch, write, or do whatever you'd like. I now use a bullet journal in exchange for my planner. It's got everything in it from publishing plans, editing deadlines, and daily to-dos.
Pink Balls - This sounds dirty, but I promise it isn't. It's an amazing way to massage your face. Before this, I never knew I held so much tension in my face, chin, and jawline.
Yoga Dress Pants - If you guys know me, you know that I have a love for comfort. Only thing is, I also want to look nice. I recently started working at a bank and had to buy some dress pants. BUT, the great thing is they are dress "yoga" pants so no one can tell they are comfy and yoga pants since they look dressy. I definitely recommend.
Liquid I.V. - I struggle to get all my water in, in a day. They say you should drink half of your weight in ounces. To figure that out, take your weight and divide it in half and then put ounces behind it. That's how many ounces of water you should be drinking in a day. I've really struggled to get enough water in a day so this is something that's helped and encouraged me. Plus, it tastes good. :) Which helps, right?
Chico Cook Book - I'm really big for finding yummy recipes that I love.
BEST EVER Dog Training Treats - These are amazing dog treats for training that Maggie just loves. And what I love about them is that they are small and low calorie so I feel good about giving her a lot. She does too. lol...
Dehydrator - We got this dehydrator earlier in 2022 and man have we loved it. We've dried out fruit, herbs from my garden, and my husband has even made biltong (which is a dried meat kind of like jerky but WAAAY better.)
Hiking Dog Backpack - As many of you (who have been following me around for awhile now) know, my hubby and I go hiking a lot. So when we got Maggie (our boxer/lab mix) we were super pumped to have another hiking buddy! And I love having her on hikes. I feel like she motivates me a lot on the trails.
Rechargeable Headlamps - Johan bought these for our camping trips but I've been surprised how many times I've used mine at home. I really like using it for taking Maggie out at night. No more fumbling with a flashlight in the dark.
Veggetti - I LOVE VEGGIES! And I LOVE SPAGHETTI! We got this and love using it to turn our Zucchinis into noodles! YES! This is amazing. Just cook the zucc noodles in some garlic and olive oil with some other spices and make your favorite meat and sauce and you will LOVE IT!
Cat Pheromones Diffuser Plugin - When you have more than one cat, there can sometimes be some stress, so I've really enjoyed having these plug
Bissell Carpet Cleaner ProHeat - You guys, I love this. It does such a great job cleaning and you'd be amazed at how well it gets pet hair out of the carpet. I love this carpet cleaner so much!
Rustic Night Lights - I have one of these in my bathroom and the other in my kitchen. I love that they give some light into the night, but yet don't blind me when I walk in the room half asleep. So pretty!
