Kell's Spring Favorites

Movie:  LION

You guys!  I cannot recommend this movie enough.  I'm basically the least emotional person there is.  And I cried several times.  It was JUST SO SO GOOD.  I literally loved it.  The way the story is told, the actors, the moral of the film, the cinematography, there are so many beautiful moments that you need to experience.  My kids and husband loved it too.  Dan is probably the pickiest movie goer EVER.  He basically likes romantic comedies and that's it.  He said, "I don't normally like movies like this, but this was really good!"  If that's not a raving review from the toughest movie critic, I don't know what is.  And the little boy who plays Suroo.  I swear he is the most lovable face ever to act in the history of movies.  He was brilliant!

Snow Cone Machine

We bought this two years ago for my son's birthday and let me just say it probably saved Crew's life.  Ok, that could be a slight exaggeration but in truth it is the only thing I can get Crew to drink when he is sick.  It helps keep him hydrated.  I also mixed Crew's medicine into a tiny little snow cone because I found it is THE only way to get him to take his medicine.

Another thing I love about it is I don't have to get the kids a snow cone every time we drive by one of those super expensive snow cone shacks.  And anytime they come in and ask "Can we go get snow cones?"  I cheerfully yell "YES!" and whip this baby out. #MomOfTheYear  I keep snow cone flavors on hand year round because I'm awesome like that and they are super cheap/basically have an eternal shelf life.  Get yourself one of these.  It is well worth it.

Also, on a selfish level, if you LOVE pebble ice in your beverage.  Now you have your own mini ice making machine.  Think Dr. Pepper, with tons of tiny ice chunks, a dribble of heavy cream and a spritz of lime.  I'm speaking your language now aren't I?

THE best podcast I listen to.  I will warn you, he isn't a Mormon, and he does swear, and so do his guests.  So if that's a deal breaker for you...don't listen.  Honestly though, he has the most interesting guests, asks them powerful and life changing questions, is quite entertaining and very well spoken.  No annoying over use of words such as "like" "uh" etc.  He's good at what he does and I frequently am finding myself jotting down notes as quickly as possible.  So many good nuggets of wisdom in this podcast.  I always get so many ideas of helping to make my life more enjoyable and purposeful from listening to Tim Ferriss.
