The Be List | Tulips, Toes and a Whole Lot of No’s

The Be List | A Collection of Wonderful Things

Spring has finally arrived and I always feel an extra spring in my step when the days get longer and everything starts to bloom. Here is a collection of things that I’m enjoying this week:


Tulips are one of the best (though quickest) parts of spring. If the weather is cool, you will get to enjoy them for a week or two. If it’s hot, you’ll only get a couple of days. Stop by your local farmers market or flower shop and grab yourself a beautiful bouquet of tulips. They will make your home so cheery!

Foot Cream

I don’t like to spend a lot of time or money on things that I can do myself. With flip-flop season right around the corner, I bought myself a package of O’Keeffe’s for Healthy Feet Foot Cream and I honestly can’t believe how soft it made my feet in just two days. I had never used it before, but it had great reviews on Amazon. It was a great discovery.


“Train yourself to let go of the things you fear to lose” – George Lucas

I have been intentionally getting rid of a lot of things lately. And you know what? It doesn’t hurt. It’s freeing.


If you are looking for a way to eliminate stress in your life, I can’t recommend The Minimalists podcast highly enough. I’ve listened to every episode and it’s changed my life. Getting rid of noise in your life will allow you to focus intensely on the things you love the most.

Coffee Maker

I don’t drink coffee, but my husband loves it. A few years ago, we purchased a Keurig, but we recently began to resent it. K-cup coffee is (dramatically) more expensive, of a lower quality, possibly contaminated with mold and just simply terrible for the environment. So this week, we ditched the Keurig and opted to kill the k cup. So far, my husband is loving his real coffee from his Ninja Coffee Bar. We will never go back to the K-Cup.


My favorite word right now is “no.” I use it abundantly. It is the number one key to an enjoyable life. I say no to most things, but when I say yes….it’s a YES!!!
