Rather than sweat the small stuff, Mama has decided to embrace it. Yes, these days bathing suits with snaps and coconuts is what is making Mama happy. Coconuts are not only healthy for you (think of all that coconut water you’ve been drinking) but they smell good and they make you feel like you’re on a tropical island where it’s warm and sunny. Warm and sunny is hard to find these days since it’s been a frigid 32 degrees at night…so Mama has been planning ahead for summer. All of the below cravings will warm you up this January and get you in the mood for spring.
