All New Friday Favorites - 1


It is my goal to make sure that babies and mommy-hood don't completely take over this here blog of mine. I am lots of other things too - so I'm going to do my best to keep things changing and talking about all sorts of different things. Of course there will be pictures and stories about James and any future children we have... but I just don't want every post on here to be about that.

So with that in mind, I thought I'd bring back Friday Favorites - but change the concept. I want to list 5-10 things each week that I really am enjoying at the moment... different products, services, or whatever comes up in the process.

So without further delay... things that relax me... because right now, I could use that reminder.

Something Borrowed Something Borrowed - This book was phenomenal...and is in the process of filming the movie which will have Kate Hudson in it and Ginnifer Goodwin. I'm currently reading the second of her books: Something Blue, and I love them... she has two others that are out, and a new one coming out on May 11th!

Yankee Candle 22 oz. Candle Jar SAGE & CITRUS Yankee Candle 22 oz. Candle Jar SAGE & CITRUS - there isn't much better than the relaxing smell of a Yankee Candle - my favorite scent is Sage & Citrus, followed closely by: Lemon Lavender Yankee Candle 22 oz which is in the nursery and Yankee Candle 22oz Tahitian Tiare Flower which is in our living room.

Village Naturals Therapy Stress & Tension Mineral Bath Soak 20 oz Village Naturals Therapy Stress & Tension Mineral Bath Soak 20 oz - ya'll this is the best bath stuff in the WORLD! They have all sorts of scents for different things like: Village Naturals Therapy Aches & Pains Mineral Bath Soak 20 oz , Village Naturals Therapy Allergy & Congestion Mineral Bath Soak 20 oz , Village Naturals Bath Shoppe White Tea Body Soak 31 oz , Village Naturals Therapy Restless Nights Mineral Bath Soak 20oz , Village Naturals Therapy Cold & Allergy Mineral Bath Soak 20 oz. I have used each and every one of these for different purposes obviously - and found them at Wal-Mart, but since they started rearranging our Wal-Mart and I can no longer find anything that I want anymore... at least we have trusty Amazon to keep me in stock!

57 Piece Massage Stone Set w/ Dvd 57 Piece Massage Stone Set w/ Dvd - Oooooh, how I would love to have a set of these right now!! Whew! I love hot stone massages - but have only had the treat a few times... it's hard to find anywhere that does it at a reasonable price - so mainly my experience with it has been in tandem with a pedicure.

Twix Peanut Butter Cookie Bars (24 Count) Twix Peanut Butter Cookie Bars (24 Count) - don't judge me... you know that Chocolate has that effect on us girls...and when it's mixed with peanut butter - how does it get any better? Ok, it can get better if it's ooey and gooey and maybe covered with vanilla ice cream... but I digress!

Foot Doctor Pedicure Kit Foot Doctor Pedicure Kit - if only I could reach my feet effectively... HA! There is just something about a pedicure that relaxes me... of course it's even better when it comes with one of those massage chairs, you know what I'm talking about. That chair is like magic... and gets me both my massage and pedicure fix at a reasonable price. In lieu of that, this is a kit that you can use at home.

Couples Retreat Couples Retreat - Sometimes nothing can be more relaxing than a GOOD hard laugh. This is the most recent movie we've seen in a while, and it just made us laugh. It's hard to beat Vince Vaughn when it comes to funny... unless it's a good old fashioned viewing of Meet the Parents!

The Lady & Sons Just Desserts: More Than 120 Sweet Temptations from Savannah's Favorite Restaurant The Lady & Sons Just Desserts: More Than 120 Sweet Temptations from Savannah's Favorite Restaurant - alright, I know this gives two things that include dessert... but DUDE if anyone knows how to make something fattening and sweet at the same time that would just about cure any stress in your life... it's Paula Deen! Can I get an amen? Anyone that can turn Krispy Kreme doughnuts into a bread pudding... I mean come on... how can she be that bad?!

I so needed that right now, whew! I feel better... do you?
