Friday Favorites: Life helpers

So, as you guys know, life has been pretty busy lately. . .

And I just haven’t been interested in meal planning or making decisions in general. . .

So, I thought I would share a few things that are making life just a little bit easier right now. . . because I know that we can all use easy once in a while. Smile 

Hello Fresh.


While I think this service is a little spendy for every week ($69 for three 2 person meals), it has been perfect right now. I don’t have to think about what’s for dinner and I haven’t even had to go to the grocery store.


Everything I need for dinner in one box and super easy instructions to follow to make it. Bonus points because we have been trying new foods/techniques/meals that I wouldn’t normally make.

Le Tote.

how it works

I’ve talked to you guys about this service before and I still love it.  $49 per month to have a box of clothes and accessories sent to you as often as you like. This is perfect for work for me. I often stand in front of my closet in the morning and waste a good chunk of time trying to decide what I want to wear that day. Well, with Le Tote, I always have 2 or 3 items in my closet from my recent box to choose from.


A new pink top on Monday, a super cute blue tie top on Wednesday and a burgundy chunky sweater for Friday. Send back anything I don’t want to keep on Saturday and get a new box next week!



I’ve had so much love and support around me, which I am so thankful for.  .. from blog comments, to Facebook messages, to emails, texts and phone calls. Flowers, chocolate covered strawberries and a running memory book. To friends bringing dinner by or putting together a “thinking of you” bag of little things to make me smile. It is such a blessing to know that I have so much to be thankful for right now. And thank you so very much.

Anything that you use to make your life a little easier?? Plans for the weekend?

We are going to be working on house projects – hoping to get the guest bedroom painted and unpack a few more boxes, a Christmas parade on Saturday and a Christmas fun run through the holiday lights on Sunday!

Linking up with Friday fun with Heather!

  1. I’ve heard great things about Le Tote! I need to check it out! I’m the same way about just standing in front of my closet, hoping something new will magically appear.
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend Katie!

  3. I probably need something like Le Tote in my life. I feel like I just rotate out the same 5 outfits every week.
    Sounds like you’ll have a busy and fun weekend!

      That was totally my issue too. I love that with Le Tote, I get to wear things I wouldn’t normally wear and if I love them, I can keep them!

  5. Happy Friday, Katie! Thanks for hosting the party. I happen to love LE TOTE, although I’m not currently getting it. But I’ve never tried Hello Fresh. It sure does sound convenient! Have a great weekend! 🙂

  6. Hope you have a great weekend filled with a lotta love and laughter, Katie! Dry Shampoo makes my life easier, along with buying in bulk so I don’t have to make as many trips to the grocery store. Oh, and online shopping of course 🙂

    Adult decisions are overrated! Yay for services that tell you what to eat and what to wear.

      LOL. I didn’t even think about that. . . it is ALL of my adult decisions. Luke and Dean are so lucky and they don’t even know it. 🙂

  9. Thank you for sharing the trial of Hello Fresh! I loved my first delivery!
