Stuff I Love

This week I'm loving:

1. My new body pillow!

Everyone keeps telling me how you need to get a body pillow when you're pregnant. So when I saw this lovely body pillow at Walmart for twelve dollars, I decided to give it a try.

I'm starting to get to the point where it's uncomfortable to sleep. I can't seem to find a good position. I'm usually a stomach sleeper, but whenever I try to lay on my stomach anymore, it hurts. My body is protesting, and I'm pretty sure I'm squishing Babykins when I do that, so I've resigned myself to the uncomfortable side-sleeping position.

Oh, that pillow makes life so much more bearable! I can lay my head on it, prop it between my knees, and hug it, and it's pretty much a life saver right now. I can actually get comfortable when I sleep! This is a good thing.
And it's a pretty purple too.

Derek is being such a good sport about it being in the bed, though he'll occasionally through in one of the traditional "it's replacing me" jokes (but it's not, and as soon as I can sleep on my stomach again, it'll be out). I have such a sweet husband.

2. These adorable baby shoes that I also bought at Walmart for five bucks!

Baby Boy Sneakers

Aren't they the cutest things ever? I couldn't resist - I had to have them. Of course I don't know if it's a boy or not, but if it is, he'll have well-dressed feet.

I'm planning on buying some cute girl shoes when I find some too, just in case it's a girl. They didn't have any extra-special girl shoes this time, so I'm still keeping my eyes peeled.

Boy, I want to find out the gender! Another month and a half to go . . .

3. This Mentha Lip Buffer from C.O. Bigelow!

My lips have been so dry lately. They look really ugly, because you can see how chapped they are. It must just be the fact that it's fall - and i think I heard that your skin and lips can get more dried out when you're pregnant? I don't know if that's true, but either way, my hands and lips have been very dry.

This stuff contains a gentle abrasive (sugar, actually), and you just put some on and rub your lips together, and the sugar crystals remove all the dead skin. Then you just wipe or lick it off, and your lips are smooth as butter. Then you put on your lip balm, because now it can actually do some good, or your lip gloss, because now it will actually look pretty. It's very nice stuff.

That wraps up the list for today - I'm off to paint the bedroom. Yes, it's finally getting done. Wish me luck.

I've got some baby updates for next week, so stay tuned!

My lips were AWFUL when I was pregnant. It was so embarassing. A really great overnight treatment I found was Neosporin over night lip therapy. Works like a charm!
That Mentha stuff sound delicious. Happy painting!

Happy painting! Can't wait to see the results.- I love body pillows too (and I'm not even pregnant), and I'll have to try that lip exfoliator. Thanks for the tip! Happy Weekend Callie!

I think I need a body pillow too, I just haven't found the right one yet...

I LOVE C.O. Bigelow lip glosses. They are amazing!
I can't believe it's only a month and a half until you find out the gender! That seems like it went really fast : ) Maybe since your readers didn't know right away?? Who knows. I hope it feels fast to you too!

Those are definitely very cute shoes! The body pillow is a very good idea indeed.

That lip stuff sounds amazing.

Everyone should have a body pillow--pregnant or not!

Jenene said...

My hands and lips are really dry too! Maybe it is a pregnancy thing....I've been trying to moisturize more frequently, but maybe it won't help unless I exfoliate first.

Kelley said...

I love that lip balm! And yeah for something that helps you sleep better!
