• Good Things

Have you ever pulled out your phone while you’re out and about and RIGHT before you take a picture, it DIES?! Or maybe you’re taking a video and you have 13% battery left and then it dies and doesn’t even SAVE what you were filming?! It’s just the worst! My phone’s battery life is HORRIBLE. Even after closing all of my apps, my battery doesn’t last and even though this is definitely a first world problem, it’s still a problem.

I rely on my phone for my maps, my email, mobile marketing, etc. So, after our recent trip to WACO…. which I can’t wait to share next week… I ordered a little device that solves all of my battery issues! Jill showed me her portable charger months ago but I didn’t realize how useful it was until we were at Magnolia Market and my phone DIED! How SAD!! Luckily, Jill’s $17 charger has THREE CHARGES on hand whenever we need them! She keeps it in her purse and she’s never without battery power!! It’s awesome! I just ordered mine and you can order one from Amazon HERE!

The next GOOD THING that I love is the JOJO CANDLE!!! I’m sure there is a specific name for this but I call it the JoJo Candle because it’s Joanna Gaine’s signature candle that is sold at Magnolia Market! They aren’t cheap but they are amazing and they can make a house feel fresh and homey in NO time!! We’ve burned through at least 3 of these candles in the last year and we plan to burn many more in the future! You can order your own JoJo candle HERE!

Last but not least… lets talk about Starbucks…. or “Bucky’s” as my friend Jill calls it. I don’t love coffee… I never have. However, I do love stopping at Starbucks because of the way that it feels! I know that’s crazy but it’s true! Stopping by Starbucks is such a fun little thing to do when we’re out but it’s hard to enjoy it when you don’t love coffee! So, I have recently found something that I really LOVE…. PEACH GREEN TEA LEMONADE!! It’s refreshing, fresh, light and doesn’t give me bad breath or yellow teeth! However, I don’t even want to know what the calories are like!!!

Happy Thursday Friends! You’re not going to believe this but I’m off on another little adventure. Actually, it’s a pretty BIG adventure! I’m heading to the mid-west with my sister to pick up her NEW PUPPY!!!!!! AHHH!!!! We’re in love with him already! I can’t wait for you to meet him!!!!!

    Okay Katelyn, just when I thought I couldn’t love you more…

    1) I have a spare battery and 3 portable chargers for my cell because this happens to me ALL the time. It always dies at the absolutely most opportune time

    2) Gonna be checking these out

    3) I love starbucks too for the feel of it (and some of the awesome barristas I have gotten to know) but I’m not a coffee girl (thought it was just me) but a lactose free hot chocolate is my jam or in the summer, a smores frappicino minus the espresso

    Keep on rocking!

    Omg girl green tea lemonade is the BEST!!!! Love my little battery charger too, except I always seem to forget the iPhone cord which doesn’t help me much ;)

    Bring Shuba to Spartaaaa!!! Also we will forgive this “Bucky’s” post this one time… ;) Can’t wait to hear all about WacoTown!

    I don’t like coffee, never have, even after almost 5 years of night shift nursing. But I have discovered I love chai lattes. That’s what I get at Starbucks.

    All the way to the mid-west for a puppy? Are there not an abundance of puppies in need of a home in her area? Strange.

    Great tip about the battery charger! Having screen addicted kids, this help when on the road.

  7. Jessica Haley reply

    The Black Tea Lemonade at Starbucks is also amazing and super refreshing for us non-coffee drinkers… ha ha! And I’m recently discovering hot tea lattes for the chillier days! Love this!

  8. Sydni reply

    I am the same way about Starbucks – I love the vibe! (and the smell!). I finally started liking coffee (only frappe’s) a couple years ago but still don’t drink it super often. That lemonade/tea sounds good!

    Not sure if you know this but Target sells the Tazo peach green tea concentrate, its in the tea and its only $3 a total money saver. You can mix it with sparkling water or lemonade. They have other flavors too but here it is

    Oh!! I now have a portable battery charger too! You must have an iphone?! (that’s what I have- and the battery life is horrendous! lol) .
