Checking out Athens, Greece

Oh hi there!  How’s your week?  I have to say that with just seven weeks until Baby B gets here, I’m getting a little anxious (and very big) so I’m trying to stay focused on the positive day-to-day stuff to keep my mind off things.  Like for instance, remembering the amazing babymoon the Hubs and I took earlier this month!  Last week I told you all about the gloriousness of Crete.  It was seriously one of the best places I’ve ever been.  We spent about 95% of our vacation there but we couldn’t go to Greece without at least stopping in Athens for a day.  I’m so glad we did!  Athens is truly a remarkable city.

Coffee on the Go with Almond Breeze Almondmilk

This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk.  All opinions are my own.

Hi there! Hope you had a fantastic weekend!  Our weekend was busy, busy, busy.  I was on the go from 8am Saturday morning until 7pm Sunday night with baby preparations, a friend’s birthday, spending quality time with the Hubs and, oh yeah, my regular chores!  One thing that helped fuel me through this weekend was a little coffee pick-me-up from Dunkin Donuts.  Even though I have been drinking decaf, I find a little bit of coffee everyday is the prefect treat to awaken my senses.  In fact, I make a cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee everyday at home in the morning.  I like to make my coffee at home because I can add in exactly what I like.  For instance, I prefer almond milk in my coffee with a little bit of stevia.  For me, this is the perfect cup of coffee.

Recently, I learned that Dunkin Donuts is now offering Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk as an option at their stores!  Cue excited squeal from me!  I LOVE almond milk in my coffee because I think it is actually a lot healthier and it tastes great.  Almond Breeze Almondmilk only has 80 calories in it, like skim milk but I hate skim milk in my coffee!  Plus, it is low in fat, soy-free,  contains no saturated fat and is very creamy.

The Busy Girl’s Guide: Snacking

Hi guys!  So it’s been awhile since I’ve done one of my Busy Girl’s Guide series.  Probably because I’ve been too busy to come up with ideas.  Ok sorry, bad pun aside, one of my favorite things to do is snack.  I mean what else are you supposed to do between meals!?  But sometimes finding healthy snacks can be a huge challenge.  When you are busy and on-the-go, it can be hard to find the time to pick up delicious yet good-for-you snacks from the store.  Enter Naturebox.*   I know what you are thinking, not another subscription box service.  But seriously, this one is all about food so you really can’t go wrong!

My Pregnancy Essentials

So I have to admit that I wasn’t the most knowledgeable person when it came to pregnancy. Besides the obvious of no drinking, smoking or doing illicit drugs, I wasn’t really clear on what OTC drugs I could take or what products I could use on my skin. It was definitely trial by fire. For instance, only after using a zit cream on my face did I find out that it was NOT recommended for pregnancy.  Fabulous.  I’m embarrassed to say that this type of situation happened more than once (am I alone in thinking there needs to be a Surgeon General’s type warning on everything!?!). Well, luckily I figured things out pretty quickly and found some amazing products that make me look and feel great.  Here are a few I love:
