These Are A Few of My Favorite Things
I watched The Sound of Music for the first time in a long while last month, and I’ve had “My Favorite Things” floating through my head ever since. It just seemed fitting to share some of my current faves with all of you.
Oh, and it probably goes without saying, but, just in case, no, I was not perked in any way to mention any of these products.
Kashi TLC Cheese Crackers (aka the best Cheez-Its EVER)
These bite-sized squares of deliciousness are not a new find for me, but I recently re-appreciated (is that a word?) how good they are. Over our Christmas travels I got some Cheez-Its at a gas station and was sorely disappointed. I realized then just how much I’d gotten used to Kashi’s superior version. Real cheese flavor with just the right amount of seasoning, whole grain goodness, and no artificial ingredients! I think I could eat a whole box in one sitting.
My belly band has been my saving grace these last several weeks. My baby belly has been slowly expanding, not enough for maternity pants, but enough to make regular pants uncomfortable. Enter the belly band—the safe way walk around with your jeans unzipped while no one’s the wiser! I got mine at Target (in white) and will probably pick up at least one more. I actually bought my first maternity pants this week, and the belly band will help extend the length of my normal shirts after I no longer need it to keep my pants from falling down.
Trader Joe’s Cheddar Cheese Sticks
So yeah, I’m back to another food item—and another cheese item at that. Good thing cheese is a pregnancy superfood! I don’t like mozzarella string cheese so these cheddar sticks are the perfect quick snack for a protein pick-me-up. Mmmmm…
I got hooked on Bones last year after hearing it shared a lot of similarities with Castle, one of my favorite shows on TV. Netflix has all the seasons on streaming so I thought I’d just try out a couple episodes. Well, we just started season 5. Yep, I got Jeff hooked too. Hopefully we’ll be able to catch up on season 6 (the current season) in time to start season 7 with everyone else next fall. Can you say addicted?
I don’t think I’ve talked about the glories of elastic quite enough yet. I’ve quickly learned that elastic is a pregnant woman’s best friend. But seriously, who doesn’t love yoga pants, pregnant or not? I don’t think there could be a more comfortable piece of woman’s clothing. Who’s with me?
Green Goodness/Green Machine
Yeah, I like food. You got me. I bought a giant bottle of Naked’s Green Machine smoothie at Sam’s Club last month and have been hooked ever since. Well, actually, I switched to Bolthouse’s Green Goodness, but they are practically the same thing. Yeah, it looks weird, but it tastes great; I always feel so good after my morning glass. It’s a little on the expensive side, but I consider it a pregnancy indulgence/investment.
