What I'm Loving Wednesday!

      I am linking up today with Jamie at This Kind of Love for What I'm Loving Wednesday. I have seen several blogs that participate in this link-up and I thought it would be fun to join in this week. Here's what I'm loving this week:

I'm loving my March Pop Sugar Must Have Box. The box featured a really great assortment of goodies this month including a Heather Belle Signature Tassel Necklace, The Laundress Delicate Wash, Corkatoo corkscrew, Buxom Sculpted Lash mascara, Hollywood Fashion Secrets Sweater Saver and fashion tape, The New Black nail polish set, and a package of Peeps. This month's box is worth around $150. You can get your first box for $5 off using the discount code REFERFRIENDS or REFER5. Click on the link above to learn more about this subscription box. 

I'm loving my new iPhone. There's a reason why almost everyone I know has one and loves it. I love all the awesome apps and how useful it is. The games are awesome, but there are so many practical apps too. Plus, I don't have to switch batteries with my husband every night like I had to with my old crappy phone. Everyone told me that I would love having iPhone and they were right! I'm pretty much attached to it at all moments right now. 
I'm loving some of the awesome free apps I've found for my iPhone. I am completely addicted to playing Scramble with Friends and Candy Crush. I love how MyShopi helps me to create my grocery shopping list and how I can easily add items by scanning a barcode and then save things I buy regularly as favorites. I love Slice, where I can see all my online purchases and shipments online and can track all my boxes really quickly in one place. And apps like My Pregnancy by Baby Center and Pregnancy by Sprout help me check in on Baby No. 2's progress daily and keep a checklist of to do's and track doctor's appointments and more. I'm still new to all this and enjoying searching for apps. For all you iPhone veterans out there, what apps do you love the most and find the most useful?

I'm loving my spring-themed iPhone wallpaper from the eighteen25 blog. Although it is still really cold here in Kentucky, I am so excited for Easter and spring and I loved decorating my iPhone screen with this cute design. I put the image with the bunny as my lock screen and just the stripes for my wallpaper behind my apps. It looks so cute! And it was super easy to do.  You can download the wallpaper HERE.

I'm loving gathering goodies for Owen's Easter basket. I just love putting together gift baskets in general and I am so excited for Owen's third Easter. He'll have celebrated three Easters before he turns two. Kind-of blows your mind, right? Anyway, I've gotten him a stuffed bunny, a cute egg toy, sidewalk chalk, and I'm hoping to find a board book for him. I will fill his eggs with Annie's Cheddar Bunnies and fruit snacks because they're healthier choices than candy and they're bunny-shaped! 

I'm loving being back home and back in our kitchen. I'm ready to try a few new recipes and fill us up on some healthy dinners. Plus, we need to wean Owen off all the junk food and treats he got while we were visiting family. Here are some of the Skinny Taste recipes we're trying this week: Slow Cooker Sesame Honey Chicken and California Grilled Chicken Avocado and Mango Salad. I made the slow cooker recipe last night and it was so good. It was a perfect mix of spicy, savory, and sweet. Even Owen liked it though I would recommend setting aside some of the cooked chicken for little kids instead of putting it back in the sauce because it is a bit spicy for little palates.  

       What are you loving today?
