Jill (Duggar) Dillard is celebrating Earth Day in a special way.

On Wednesday, the former Counting On star shared a photo of herself sitting in the driver’s seat of her car next to a tree, which she purchased while shopping solo for the first time since the coronavirus outbreak prompted stay-at-home orders nationwide.

“Got out yesterday to grab a few things BY MYSELF for the first time since this whole #coronaviruspandemic thing and came home with this tree hanging out my window. 😂,” the 28-year-old captioned a selfie, in which she wears a white face mask.

“I don’t like to think of myself as an emotional purchaser, but I have to say there was something therapeutic & satisfying about getting a tree🌳,” she continued.

“…now I’m off to plant the tree…and hopefully keep it alive. lol,” she concluded.

Her “emotional” buy comes just two days after the mother-of-two shared a photo of her sons’ — Samuel Scott, 2, and Israel David, 5, whom she shares with husband Derick Dillard — new wooden bunk bed.

“The boys finally got a bunk bed and they’re thrilled about it! 🥳,” she captioned a photo of the brothers sitting on their respective beds.

Last month, Jill joined a few of her siblings for “some sister time” in Arkansas, including Jinger (Duggar) Vuolo — who has been living in Southern California since last year after relocating from Laredo, Texas, where she moved to after getting married — and Jessa (Duggar) Seewald.

Similar to Jill, Jessa also recently had an enjoyable trip to the store.

At the end of February, Jessa and husband Ben Seewald went out for a date night together, when they visited a Whole Foods grocery store and picked up some items to take home and cook up a meal with in their kitchen.

“Let’s be real— I live off grocery pickup most of the time,” Jessa, 27, wrote alongside a post shared to Instagram.

“But grocery shopping is never more enjoyable than when we do it together. #datenight @ben_seewald,” continued Jessa, who shares three children with Ben: sons Spurgeon, 4, and Henry, 3, and daughter Ivy, who turns 1 in May.

Shortly after Jessa shared her smiling shot, Ben posted a snap of the pair holding brown grocery bags after their successful shopping trip.

“Just grabbing some smoked paprika, combing the fresh produce for sales, and picking up a few bags of locally roasted coffee. I love shopping with you @jessaseewald! Now let’s get in the kitchen and make something together. #datenight #health,” wrote Ben.
