Can you believe that we are already in the middle of May? This month flies – so many end-of-year activities and celebrations. I’m just trying to keep up here, but so grateful that we’re finally back on track. In this week’s edition of It’s the Little Things, I’m sharing a blog favorite, t-shirt summary, great pulled pork recipe, and a few Clean Mama updates.
Call me old fashioned, but I still prefer a blog to social media. I’ve been following Chris Loves Julia for a long time and absolutely loved watching her upcoming move to North Carolina. Take some time to take a look at and follow their fun posts.

Break the t-shirt rut with some new spring and summer t-shirt recommendations from Kate on The Small Things Blog. I grabbed the J. Crew graphic t-shirt she wears in the mail and love it.

We have a busy week this week so I pulled out the instant pot and made the BBQ Pulled Pork out of this recipe for multiple meals this week. It’s absolutely delicious and perfectly freezerable. I took a two-pack of Costco pork shoulder and it made a huge amount. Thank you, Mel’s Kitchen!

Did you see the … Quarterly summer? It’s one of my favorite things on the site – a calm approach to housekeeping and an invitation to slow down. I’m sharing my top secret chicken salad recipe and other tips for a refreshing summer. Check it out here.
