By the Way.

Today is going to be 64 degrees here in Tennessee, y'all. This is why I don't think I could ever leave the South. I LOVE days like this during the winter time. We will be spending most of today outside, but while I wait on my stinker to wake up, I thought I'd share what I'm loving lately.

First, all natural creamer. I'm a coffee with creamer girl. Probably one quarter creamer, three quarters coffee. I wish I could be really mature and drink it black, but I just can't. I used to use whole milk and sugar, UNTIL I discovered this. I like the sweet cream and vanilla flavors, and the best part is they're all natural!

When I was pregnant with Eli, I tried taking all those expensive horse prenatal pills, but they made me so sick. And since I was already throwing up multiples times a day, I just couldn't take them and add one more thing that made me sick. So, my dr. told me to take Flinstone vitamins, just two instead of one a day. The only problem with those is that one time I guess I had put one in my pocket at some point to take later. Somehow it got a little wet and ended up under my dresser. WELL, I started smelling what I thought was cat urine in our room. It drove me crazy, and sick. I searched high and low for what I thought was a puddle of urine. I bugged Matthew about it for a good week, and of course, having a normal sense of smell, he couldn't smell a thing, and thought I was crazy. I finally got down on my hands and knees and searched my entire room, sniffing left and right. I ended up at my dresser, and thought, "that darn cat peed on my clothes!" What did I find instead? One slightly wet flinstone vitamin.

Fast forward to this past August when we got pregnant and I needed to take vitamins again. I started with the chewable Flinstones, but gagged every time b/c I always thought of the cat smell when I was chewing them. LO and BEHOLD, they make Flinstone GUMMIES!! This is revolutionary, people. I take two a day, and have to hide them from Eli b/c he thinks they're candy. They are delicious. Like fruit snacks. Not cat urine. The end.

Last, I do a little online shopping during rainy day nap times. I load tons of cute clothes on my cart, and then I close out the window, and never purchase. I love these little boots from, of all places, Wet Seal. They look cute, comfy, and my favorite part, cheap! My birthday is Feb. 15th and I wear a 7.5. :)

I wish I could show you them not blurry, but I couldn't find a bigger image to save. Here's the link in case you want to check them out for yourself. http://www.wetseal.com/catalog/product.jsp?categoryId=109&productId=53307&color=NATURAL&altImageId=3

Last, this nail color. It's Mink Muffs by Essie, and I've been wearing it for the past two weeks. I have to reapply constantly though b/c washing dishes and babies wreaks havoc on polished nails. It's a good Fall taupe color.

These are not my nails. My paint jobs don't look quite as nice as that!

What about you? Any recommendations?

  1. Janie- not pushing, but you should check out Juice Plus. Both the girls and I take it, and my OB approved it for me to take instead of my prenatal. It is a whole food supplement, not a vitamin. I loved it because when I was pg with Ava, I knew I wasn't eating the right stuff all the time, and this filled in the gaps for me. The girls take the gummies, and I take the regular pills. Just look at it! Dr. Sears recommended :) www.corinnesharesjuiceplus.com
