I’m sorry I haven’ t been around more this week! We’ve had a tough time with teething lately – Grayson’s bottom two teeth came in no problem in January but these top two…..whew. Night and day. Poor guy has every single teething symptom in the book (including cold-like symptoms, diaper rash, night wakings…) and it’s just been so sad to watch! He’s miserable and I’ve been exhausted. However, I am happy to report that both teeth have know broken through so hopefully things will start to get better. I’ve heard the most painful part is right before the teeth actually cut. Poor guy.
Anyway! Happy Friday! I thought I would share some of my favorites over the past few weeks. Enjoy!
Athleta High Waisted Metro Leggings. These are like the perfect legging for exercise in my opinion! They are smooth, sleek, good looking and suck everything right into place. An Athleta just opened up literally across the street from my house so it’s starting to get dangerous…
Barre3 + Every Mother Counts. I was so happy when I saw that Barre3 had partnered with one of my very favorite nonprofits. EMC is committed to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother around the world. We are so lucky to live in a place with amazing medical care…something we might not think about too often in our day to day life but it’s true. In my own labor + delivery, when I either needed a vacuum extraction or emergency c-section, that really rang true for me. Grayson and I might not have been so lucky had we not had been in a place with such great care. I love what EMC is doing and fully support their mission.
Hylands Teething Tablets. Saving our lives these days! Well, that and ibuprofen.
Shakeology. Still loving our daily shakes! This stuff is expensive but after two weeks of drinking it every day, I can honestly say I DO feel different. Adam and I make a shake every morning for breakfast with it, frozen bananas, almond milk and almond butter and it easily gets me through the morning feeling satiated and energized. Some of you commented on it being a fad or whatever, but to each their own, I suppose. I love that it’s made with all natural ingredients and you can’t argue with all the superfoods it contains. I actually became a Beachbody coach just so I could snag the sweet discount (this stuff is expensive!). I believe, as a coach, you save about $30 per bag and you also get pretty hefty discounts on all the programs, like the T25 that we are doing and loving right now. If you’re also interested in getting the discount to try stuff out send me an email and I will help you. I truly would never endorse a product I don’t personally believe in, but after a few weeks of drinking this and doing T25, I feel like a whole new person. I need to write a separate post on our experience with the workouts, but we are LOVING it. I wasn’t doing this to lose any weight, but in three weeks time I have already gone down a jean size and Adam has lost a little over 5 lbs. Not bad!
IKEA Smock Bibs. You all have commented on my Instagram posts, asking where I get the bibs I use on Grayson. They are the cheapo IKEA smocks! I just love them. No other bib catches all the mess that this child produces while eating. Seriously, if I use a different bib, it’s a total outfit change right after he eats. I need to get some more because we only have two and two is NOT enough in this house!
The Everlane “Crew” Sweatershirt. I’m wearing it currently so it’s on my mind. Adam commented on how much he loves it on me and it’s so, so comfy. I’ve been living in it lately. It’s super flattering with jeans!
Super Charge Me cookies. Remember these?! I used to make them all the time a few years ago and then I burned out on them. Well, they are back! These are calorie-free to us breastfeeding mamas since oats are good for our milk supply. 😉
The Girl on the Train. Just finished this and loved it! I practically read the whole book on my iphone while rocking a miserable teething baby in the dark. It was so, so, so good. I need to write a book post soon — I’ve been reading some awesome books lately!
