Currently Adoring: This Week's Must-Haves :: I Adore What I Love Blog :: www.iadorewhatilove.com #iadorewhatiloveHi guys! First of all, welcome to my new weekly post series that I’m starting right here, right now! I’ll be sharing anything that I decide to share each week that I think you all need to know about! From gadgets to food products to everything in-between, I’ve been wanting to do this type of series for forever and have legit been agonizing over a title name for it. Then I realized that I needed to ask my favorite Instagram followers for some suggestions, which turned out to be my best idea yet! Without you, I’d still be tormenting myself and probably wouldn’t have come up with anything yet. In the end, I figured it out! I lovedddd what everyone suggested but basically merged two of your ideas together {shout out to Haley and Sarah!!} to come up with my title! It’s kind of perfect, right?! If you don’t think so, don’t tell me because I’m done thinking about it, haha! Butttt, if you weighed in via my instagram post, thank you thank you thank you!!!! It is MUCH appreciated!!!!!!!!

Talking about THREE cool products today and I would consider ALL of them life changing. Let’s get the party started…

GoWise USA Air Fryer

This is NOT a gimmick, it’s for real and I’m obsessed! My friend Julie brought the air fryer to my attention a while back and ever since, I kept hearing about it from different people. An air fryer not only fries, but it also bakes, with little to no oil needed, equaling healthier meals for all! It’s honestly one of the best investments you’ll make {mine – which you can find HERE – was only $75 on Amazon {c/o WikiBuy} so not even such a huge investment} and I’ve already used it so much that I’m pretty sure it’s paid for itself. Am I the only one who thinks that way?! Ha! Ok, so I know what you’re thinking: “What are you making in it, Dana?!” The answer to that question is what DON’T I make in it?! I’ve made a killer grilled cheese, kid-approved french toast, perfectly crispy butternut squash fries, potato chips that taste like they came from the store, apple chips for the boys, delish chicken for dinner, decadent desserts, I mean, the list goes on! And it’s SO SO SO easy to use, too, taking mere minutes to get whatever healthy meal, side, or snack I’m making onto the table!

Spark Working Kitchen Sink for Kids

The boys’ babysitter, who is the best of the best, decided to bring this {working!} toy kitchen sink over one day for Brody because she thought it looked adorable at the store and knew he would like it. Well, boy was she RIGHT!!!! He actually MORE than likes it {#lovesit} and wants to play with it every free second he has! It’s the ultimate entertainment and pretty freaking adorable, too. Not only does it come with the sink and faucet, but it also includes a dish rack, plastic utensils, a scrub brush, and a play detergent bottle. All you have to do is fill the sink with water, turn it on just like you normally would turn on any faucet, and viola!! An instant 20-25 activity!! Not joking, Brody can play with this forever, and I’m sure your kids will be able to also. Perfect for kids 2-3+. Would also make a great birthday gift!! TIP: cut a sponge in half and have your child use that too. There’s even an ideal space for it located right next to the faucet handle. 

Shop this working kitchen sink HERE.

Method Stain Remover

Method Stain Remover might just be my secret weapon to getting out all the stain’s in my busy boys’ stain-proned clothing! Wait, it IS my secret weapon!! Because it works and it’s amazing!! I love it so much that I buy the 9-pack at this point. Even on stains that are feisty and stubborn, old and set-in {aka – have already been washed} this stuff will get it out! It became even more appealing to me when I found out that the formula is FREE + CLEAR and I live for the fact that it comes with a built-in brush. It’s just so so good!!! Will you try it and let me know what you think?!

Shop Method Stain Remover HERE {or shop the 9-pack HERE, which gets you a deal!}

I added each of these must-haves to my personal Amazon page as well, where you can see ALL of my favorite items to purchase at my fave online retailer. Check it out HERE.

.
Literally for the past 2 years, 3 months, and 5 days {‼️} we haven't left each other's sides... And he loves me. A LOT.  Maybe as much as I love him. So I think we both felt it. He did great at drop-off but these are the moments as a mom you wish you could just skip! At least I do. Because while proud doesn't even begin to describe the feeling I had this morning, it was also scary and sad and brought out all the emotions! 🥰 Parenting is hard!
.
So here's to all the moms out there who are in the same boat as me today or in the coming weeks. WE GOT THIS 🙏🏼😘 Xox
