5 Things

5 Things I am loving right now!

1. North Point Message on Parenting
This North Point Message is wonderful if you are a parent or going to be one someday. I really learned a lot from it, and will use their advise. 
2. Stewartia
This tree is right outside our front door, and was given to me by my grandparents. It is called a Stewartia and is constantly showing off new blooms like the one above. I love seeing it every day!

3. Lululemon Bag
Ok, so I am currently in the "nesting" stage of pregnancy. I am 28 weeks along and packed the diaper bag. Maybe a little early? Anyways, the diaper bag we are using is actually a lululemon workout bag, like the one above (not the same one but really similar). It has about a gajillion pockets, and is huge. Click here to see more pics of this bag (its basically on the same level as Mary Poppins' bag).

4. Mama Bee Belly Butter
 So there is no research showing that ANYTHING helps prevent stretch marks (as far as lotions and potions). But, I started applying this in the first trimester and have been ever since. Love it! It has shea butter and vitamin E, which traditionally are supposed to help. Also: for anyone in their first trimester: it smells like nothing... and when you have a stronger sense of smell than a bluetick hound this is a huge plus. Oh, and it is burt's bee's so all natural! Click Here

5. Green Smoothies
This was the first one that I made, and as you can kind of see I put it in a Wonder Woman glass so I would have the courage to drink it (I was a little weary). It was so good, and refreshing in the heat! I just put raw kale and spinach, some yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, honey, and ice in our blender and voila!


  1. Love the bag you are going to use for a diaper bag! I found your blog because we are both dental hygienists - I'm looking forward to following along!

  2. That's great! Just checked out your blog, I love it! You have a beautiful family
