The beginning of this week is already over (what?!) and we just had two nights of the Bachelorette.... HUGE yay on both accounts.
This past weekend in Cleveland was a great time! My soon to be sister-in-law's shower was beautiful, we had fun visiting with family, and me and Billy even got a date night downtown while Billy's parents babysat Camden. We went to a restaurant called the Chocolate Bar and they had seriously the best looking martini's I've ever seen. Of course I had to pass on getting one but don't worry, I wasn't about to miss a chance to indulge so I got this huge sundae for dessert (and will def be going back once baby is born!) which totally made up for missing that martini and then some...
I confess...as of the past week/week and a half I found out baby is extremely low (and head down) which is causing me so much discomfort/pressure. I'm talking sometimes it hurts to even stand for long periods of time. Camden never felt this low, so this is all new to me and is taking some adjusting to! I hate that I can't do as much, but I'm slowly learning to give myself more breaks and to not be so hard on myself.
I confess...there is a new CostCo opening about two miles from my work, which may or may be dangerous for our bank account. For all of my local readers, the new location is in Dublin and is opening in August! New Executive Members will receive a $20 Costco Cash Card and $55 in coupons and new Gold Star and Business Members will receive a $10 Costco Cash Card! Before having a kid (soon to be kids), I never really felt the need to buy in bulk all that often but it is just so much easier to shop for certain things in bulk when you have little ones. Less trips to the store keeps me sane, I'm tellin' ya. These are 3 things from Cost Co that are my faves...random, but GOOD buys. Camden loves loves loves peanut butter on pretty much anything, and this is by far my favorite to buy because the ingredients is just peanuts and it's super yummy.
(all 3 products are from their Kirkland signature brand)
I confess...I'm in loovee (insert heart eyes emoji) with the apple watch and am already so happy with it. Full review will be posted tomorrow!
I confess...that I don't understand people who can say they wish the boy or mother died, instead of Harambe. I love animals just as much as the next person, but it's just wrong. I also don't understand why people don't agree that the zoo made the right decision. They are the professionals and the ones who knew the gorilla best. I just wonder if that was their son down there, would they really be speaking the same tune? I don't think so.
I confess...I don't see the appeal in Jordan (from the Bachelorette) Maybe I will start to see it soon because clearly JoJo is smitten and I def trust the girl. She's the best, isn't she? I love watching her! Anyway, Chase and Derek both completely won me over this week.
I confess...configuring two carseats in my backseat has me all kinds of confused. Do I want Camden behind the drivers side or on the passenger side? Who will I load into the car first? Who will I load out of the car first? #SENDHELP (any tips from experienced mamas out there?)
I confess...that I'll pull all the weeds in our yard and then not bag them up or clear them from our grass, so they just sit there for multiple days on end. I don't know why, but I literally do it almost every single time.
I confess...you all need to try StriVectin's new Ultimate Restore hair care line. I've been using their shampoo and conditioner for the past weeks which I love, but my favorite product is the deep repair mask. My hair feels healthier each time I use it and it's sulfate free and safe to use on color treated hair.
Also, the WET BRUSH. If you haven't bought one of these bad boys yet, run to Target and purchase stat. It's actually the only brush I use and I just bought one for Cam! The best.
I confess...I've got nothing else.
What do you confess this week? Can you relate to any of my confessions?
