My apologies

Hey everyone! I'm NOT dead!! I sincerely would like to apologize for my lack of posting. As I am nearing my due date I feel like absolute garbage. This is a complainey post so bear with me.
I have NO energy.
I don't want to do anything.
I am in a lot of pain in my back, legs, and hips.
I want to sleep all day.
I am moody.
I am an unpleasant person to be around right now to put it mildly.
Within the next few days I will shove a few reviews up and will probably be a little quiet until our second girly arrives. I really wish I felt better, but this pregnancy has been really rough for me! Thanks to those of you who popped by during my absence.

Long Weekend!

Hello everyone! I am back from silence after a much-needed long weekend. My husband and Dad went to their annual Father's Day fishing Derby on Lake Champlain. So I had a girly weekend with my daughter, mom, and sister. We did so much over the weekend that when we finally came home yesterday afternoon, I was exhausted! Then of course, I had the worst time trying to fall asleep. Hubby had conked out in the middle of our bed so I decided to sleep on the recliner in our living room.
I won't bore you with all the details from this past weekend, but we all had fun. I spent the entire weekend at my mom's house, and there's nothing in the world like my mom's cooking. So to be able to eat her food all weekend was awesome! I hope everyone's father's day weekend was great as well. I will be back later to share some new content but I will leave you with a couple of pictures from the carnival we went to this weekend.

Omega 3

All the time in magazines and on television, we hear about how miraculous Omega 3 Fish Oil is. I have taken it before many times and have learned to deal with the consequences of taking it on an empty stomach (fishy burps eew!) and the awful smell.
Quality Encapsulations sent me a bottle of their Omega 3 Soft gels to try out and I highly recommend using this brand's Fish Oil supplements.

They promise no fishy aftertaste and there was none. In fact if you sniff the bottle, it smells like citrus, not gross fish. A lot of their customers have been extremely happy with their bottle as well. If you are looking for a high quality fish oil supplement, I highly recommend this brand.

OZ Naturals Dermafoliant

*** I received this product for free in exchange for my honest opinion***

OZ Naturals sent me their Ancient Orient Rice Enzyme Dermafoliant. Whew! That was a mouthful. This product contains some really awesome natural ingredients such as:
-Lactic Acid
-Green Tea Extract
-Organic Rice Powder
To name a few. It is a 100% Vegan product and is Cruelty Free.

This is in powder form and is really easy to do. You only need a few drops of water to add to the powder before applying to your face. You let it sit for five minutes before you clean it off your face. VOILA you have super soft skin and your dead skin cells are gone!

-Super Soft Skin After Use

-Top is like a salt shaker. I don't like that because that allows for dust and other small icky stuff to get in your product. It is also a little difficult to get the desired amount out with this design
-It says add in a small amount of water to the powder you literally need only a few drops of water. This is super important for folks who aren't terribly familiar with how this particular product should work. I think it would be great if they included a little dropper.

So I really like this product and all of my issues are really just with the packaging and not the functionality of the product. I think it worked great! I would recommend this especially if someone has sensitive skin but needs to exfoliate!
To find more product details or if you're interested in purchasing just click on the following link.

Before Use- Directions say to clean your skin first so I'm fresh outta the shower!
During Use

After Use- Hard to see a difference, but I definitely feel it. This picture is oddly lighter than the others even though I was sitting in the same darn spot!

The Rest of June

Here we are in June and as my due date while it seems forever away is in actuality, fast approaching. I have so much left to do and that I want to do. I have been falling behind in blogging and a lot of other things because carrying baby #2 has been rough. Sometimes it feels like I've bit off more than I can chew but I am going to keep trucking, because I truly love blogging so far and I have so much left to learn. So as my first post this week I wanted to share my goal/to do list for the remainder of June.

1) Finish Baby's Room
The crib has been put together, most of her clothes have been put away and her changing table has been stocked. The baby's room used to be our office so there are still some left over things I have to haul out as well as get rid of all of the gift bags from the baby shower.

2) Assemble the bassinet, stroller, and swing.

3) Read one book- I love reading and I haven't really made time for it. Plus, I though it would be nice to post some reviews and thoughts about books on here.

4) Get my reviews posted

5) Come up with some cool things to blog about-I have been really struggling with the whole "creative content" thing. Maybe it's pregnancy brain, but I have to be more interesting on this thing!

It doesn't seem like a lot and I'm probably missing some things but I really have to stop procrastinating.
