I’m linking up with Leigh Kramer and sharing some of my favorite things this month.
Wearing Clothes That Fit
I’m 9 months postpartum and finally feeling like my body has reached the point where it’s not going to change anymore. That means I can finally buy some clothes that fit. When you add together my fertility treatments, pregnancy, and postpartum, I feel like I’ve been wearing uncomfortable, unflattering clothes for the last two years. I splurged and ordered a Stitch Fix box. I’d had so-so results with the last 3 boxes I ordered, but this one was amazing. I ended up keeping all five pieces! Hopefully I can do a round-up post soon and share what I got.
But I still needed a few more pieces, and I didn’t want to break the bank. My friend suggested Swap.com to me, and I’m so glad I tried it. I got three great tops for under $20 total. I’ll try to do a round-up post for this soon, too.
Zheng Gypsy Tea Chai Tea Sampler
I picked this up at Cost Plus World Market and I’m obsessed. I’m going back to buy another one as soon as I finish the one I have. Each of the teas are soon delicious, and they all pair well with chocolate. I love the little tin, too. I’m going to keep it and re-purposed it. Bonus points that the tea is Fair Trade and organic.
Amazon has it, too.
Baby Einstein You Tube Channel
Before I had kids, I always told myself, “I’ll never use the TV to babysit my kid.” Well, never say never. I want to laugh at my former self for being so naive! Sometimes turning on the TV for a few minutes is the only way I can use the bathroom without CJ screaming or take five minutes to eat a sandwich. I discovered the Baby Einstein You Tube Channel, and if I’m going to let her watch TV, I don’t feel too bad about letting her watch this. They don’t have flashy, high-speed animated videos. Instead, music set to videos of children’s toys and colorful shapes. I’ll put one of the shorter, 5-10 minute videos on, and CJ is mesmerized. It gives me a quick minutes to eat, load the dishwasher, or just have some peace!
Sacred Ordinary Days Podcast
I’m taking a break from all the blogging / business podcasts I’d been obsessed with for the last two years. They were all starting to sound the same to me. I forgot how I found it, but the Sacred Ordinary Days Podcast is like honey to my ears. I love the emphasis on slowing down and incorporating the liturgical calendar into everyday life. Also, I want their planner so bad! Such a brilliant idea.
On my Blogs
On the library blog, I shared some free social media images I made for Library Card Sign-Up Month.
On my infertility blog, I shared a quote and some thoughts about God’s timing.
