There are so many things I'm thankful for and one of those is the amount of nature areas Washington state has to offer. I'm so thankful we were able to get out and walk Nisqually Wildlife Perserve before the "Stay Home, stay healthy" order the Gov. placed. It was wonderful to get out one last time, this staying home is tough and I don't know how we're going to manage?!! #pnw #nature #optoutside #stayhome #momlife #sendwine

🌴On Saturday we took advantage of the sunshine and finally got out of the house! This will be a rough and trying time for our mental health, not going to lie. But we got to play at the local beach while practicing #socialdistancing it was wonderful! 🌻And we found a beautiful painted rock, thank you to who ever hid it!

Stop to smell the flowers! 
This is your daily reminder to get outside, get some fresh air and your daily dose of vitamin D!

What are you going to do with your child if homeschooling isn't cut out for them or your family? Take a deep breath, exhale and relax. It'll be okay! Everyone's health and wellness is much more important at this time than academics. I've got a list of activities if you'd like some structure in your lives though. Check it out on my blog.

Glad we were able to squeeze in one more trip out into the community and zoo before things start shutting down. Friday Piper and I made an impromptu visit to Pt defiance zoo! It was great minus the cold/rain; there was only a couple other people, animals were active, didnt need to touch anything. Now schools are out for 6 weeks and we plan on quarantining ourselves at home for most of that time, except to get out into nature.

On February 3 I started My Peak Challenge and happy to say I'm still going strong! I've been needing to make some lifestyle changes and get more active. I've been working to control what I eat, getting some kind of exercise  in daily which I'm really enjoying. I didn't think I'd ever say that! 💚 #MPC2020 has truly started changing my life, I've had more positive thoughts and my body feels good. @mypeakchallenge

Just an IDEA!! With the coronavirus and people stocking their homes with TP, disinfecting wipes, tissues, hand santizer.... Think about buying an extra wipe container, hand santizer and/or tissue box and donate it to your child's teacher. I'm 100% positive they wouldnt turn it down! Keep in mind I'm sure the school is supplying them with some stuff but a lot of times teachers spend money out of their own pockets for classroom stuff. Remember your child is spending a good portion of their time at school right now, not just at home.

Pregnancy Must Haves

pregnancy must haves

Pregnancy can sometimes be overwhelming, uncomfortable, exhausting, and joyful all at the same time. Not one pregnancy is the same, even for the same person. And with each trimester comes all sorts of lovely symptoms. My pregnancy with my son was completely different than my current pregnancy(with a girl).

But with pretty much all pregnancies comes a couple basic needs/wants; that will make your day to day, the whole 9 months a lot easier! See below for all the Pregnancy Must Haves….

 

Burt’s Bees Belly Butter – This stuff has been wonderful this pregnancy, doesn’t leave your skin oily, doesn’t have an odor and one jar will last you the whole pregnancy. I know a lot of people suggest cocoa butter belly rub and I tried it with my first but it had such a bad odor to it, I only tried it once and had to throw it away.

Lotions – Any kind, just buy a big bottle of the stuff you like because you will go through it. Pregnancy dries out your skin so much.

Prenatal Vitamin – I prefer the chew-able kind, less likely to make you sick and it’s easy to take.

Pillow”S” or a pregnancy body pillow – on sale $48 – I know tons of people who LOVE the pregnancy body pillows. I’ve just been using an extra long pillow for my legs and my belly, but I do wish I would of tried one of these.

Face Wash – I love Clean & Clear Morning Burst! Again, pregnancy will have a toll on your skin. Some get glows, some get pimples. Either way you’ll want a great face wash.

Pregnancy/Baby Books – If you’re a first time Mom these can answer a lot of your questions and prepare you, with my first I read a ton of different books and these 411 were by far my favorite, they also have for toddler and older – Pregnancy/Childbirth $10 and Baby 411

Maternity Belt – These make great support for back pain or just growing stomach pains that we all experience.

Lemons(lemon water), candy to suck on, mints ~ to survive the first trimester!

Grabber – This is my new found love! My husband just picked me up one from the store for under $20. I’ve come to the point where it gets a little tricky to bend over. I will no longer have to look at that little piece of garbage on the floor, until someone else picks it up.

Reusable Water Bottle – You will likely drink a lot of water!

Panty Liners – This will come in the second/third trimester, baby gets big and presses on bladder. And if you’re new at this, ask any pregnant lady about sneezing. It is no joke! No matter how strong you believe your bladder is, chances are you will need that panty liner at least once.

 

 

What do you think of the list? Is there something you would add? I always love hearing about others must have products!

    I am 23 weeks now and have recently noticed that bending over is just not what it used to be. It requires a much wider stance… 😂 I think the baby just does not like being compressed that way- need to send the hubby out for a grabber I guess!
