So this may only apply to a few of you right now but I thought I'd share two of my favorites during this pregnancy. Would you like to know what has helped me feel more comfortable and happy this time?
The concept is simple. It’s an elastic band that fits over the top of your jeans/pants/skirts and up onto your belly. You can use it to cover the fact that your jeans are unbuttoned, to hold up maternity pants/skirts that are a bit too loose, or simply to wear under shirts that are too short. I bought three (two white one black) and I have seriously used them every single day of my pregnancy and plan to use them postpartum as well. Right now, I am really appreciating the support it gives my belly and even back. So I would definitely say the Bella Band is a favorite!
Meg from Megan Elle photography is a magician. I was so lucky to be contacted by her a couple of months ago with a request to photograph some of my dolls. Of course after seeing her beautiful work and site, I was ecstatic to agree! Here are just a few samples of her magic with paper dolls:
If you are in the Portland area and looking for someone to create magic for you, I would highly recommend Megan Elle Photography!
Jenny at The Southern Institute for Domestic Arts and Crafts invited me over to share one of our family's favorite meals today. She is doing a great new series called "Meals Kids Love". She has asked a slew of bloggers to share, I'm so excited to see what others contribute 'cause heaven knows I need all the help I can get coming up with new ideas! Anyway, to see one of our family's favorites, click on over.
Leave a comment telling me about one of your favorite meals and if you happen to have a link to a recipe that would be great too (if not, that's OK, but I may be emailing you for the recipe!)
