Fit Bump Review and Giveaway

Fit Bump Maternity
I have enjoyed staying active throughout my entire pregnancy. It is something that is very important to me and I feel my best when I exercise. I have mainly stuck to walking but I have done a tiny bit of running here and there as well.

I was recently sent an awesome maternity workout outfit from Fit Bump. They sell maternity fitness clothes. Now that I am in my 3rd trimester, almost all of my pre-pregnancy clothes do not fit. This outfit that I was sent from Fit Bump is so comfortable that I honestly have been wearing it throughout the day, not just to exercise.

Hey, if you can't drink at a bonfire, you might as well snack a ton. Haha- me enjoying a peach.

I was sent the EOS capris. They have really cute ruching up the sides. They have a looser fit which is not something that I normally like but since so many of my clothes feel too tight, these have been wonderful. I even wore them for a family bonfire at my parent's farm since I like them so much. They felt comfortable while walking and are comfortable on the stomach.

I was also sent the Theia top in black to review. I like this top a lot because it shows off my growing bump nicely. The top is ruched down the back which is a cute detail. This top will fit me well the rest of my pregnancy. It does not ride up during a workout either and is fitted but not too tight.

I am highly impressed with the clothing from Fit Bump. It is nice quality and fits very well.

The giveaway will be for your choice of item from Fit Bump maternity.

My Brest Friend Review

My Brest Friend
Through all of my research when planning my baby registry, a product that mom's kept recommending was a nursing pillow. I had heard about both the Boppy and the My Brest Friend pillow which were highly rated. I read about the differences between the two and liked that the My Brest Friend was firmer which seems to be more beneficial.

I was sent the My Brest Friend pillow in pink marina to review.

Here are some of the features and benefits of this nursing pillow:
My Brest Friend

It is recommended by lactation consultants. It stays in place and does not shift or slide like other nursing pillows may. I like that this pillow gives back support which will be nice during long feeding sessions to prevent a sore back. You can find the My Brest Friend pillows on Amazon for $34-38. 

My Brest Friend
The cover is removable and machine washable which is really nice. The strap is adjustable and can clip around your body so that it does not fall off. It features a pocket that is really nice to be able to store whatever you need. I have read that moms store nursing pads in there often.

I love the bright pink design on this nursing pillow. I look forward to using this come September when my baby is here!

Favorite Prints and Decals

First, I have to wish a very happy 30th birthday to my husband!!! I cannot believe that he is 30 already. I met him when he was 22! Where does the time go? I love you so much Troy and hope you have an amazing day!

giraffe and elephant nursery print
1. Field and Flower Etsy Shop: I was sent this beautiful set of prints from the Field and Flower Etsy shop. The shop features all kinds of gorgeous prints for a baby's or child's room. I loved how this set of 4 prints went together so well. The baby's room is light green and is going to have lots of pink accents so these match really well. The prints can be customized by your choice of colors to match with your nursery. This set of 4 originally did not come with the elephant print but the owner Sara kindly customized it for me. I think that this print is very pretty and will be great for when the baby is a toddler as well. By the way her name starts with an A but I am not telling what it is yet (my print has an A, not an N).

2. ZeppiPrints Etsy Shop- When first finding out that I was pregnant, I went to Etsy quickly to find everything that I could about dachshunds for babies. I found tons of these dachshund prints from ZeppriPrints. I loved them! There are so many different colors and prints of this design that I love. Also, the shop has some really great nautical prints that caught my eye for if I was having a boy. These prints are $48 for a set of 3 11 x 14 prints. I just need to find some inexpensive frames to put these in and I have a really great wall hanging for the baby's room! The prints are high quality and are so cute!

space wall decal
3. Dezign with a Z Wall Decal- My husband is so excited about this review. I was told to choose a decal from Dezign with a Z and had fun looking through their many designs. At first, I was going to choose something for the baby's room but when I saw this decal, I knew to look no further, this would be perfect.

My husband is a high school earth science teacher and of course, teaches all about the planets and space. This decal is huge and will be so perfect for his classroom. When my husband opened this package, he was so excited. It takes up most of our living room rug! He said that everything looks very realistic and is not spaced unrealistically which is great. You can choose this decal in a very small size or have it blown up very large. It looks so clear and I know that his students will love this huge decal. We actually got it on the very last day of school this year and my husband was so sad that he has to wait until August to put it up!

Melissa's Produce Review

Melissa's produce potatoes and shallots
I am a big fan of Melissa's products and have reviewed them a few times in the past (apples, potatoes, a cookbook, etc.). The products are very fresh and tasty. Over the last few years, I have been seeing them pop up all over at different stores as well.

For my review, I was sent some shattos and baby dutch yellow potatoes. With these, I decided to make some homemade hashbrowns for breakfast with some bell peppers and garlic. They were very tasty! I like how cute the little potatoes are.
Melissa's produce crepes
I was also sent some dried cranberries. With these, I made whole-wheat cookies with chocolate chips. They were tasty. I have not used these French crepes yet but look forward to trying them. I am thinking a banana and peanut butter type filling.

Melissa's fire roasted bell peppers
Finally, I was sent the fire roasted sweet bell peppers from Melissa's. Often times, jarred red peppers are soaked in oil so I love that these are not because they are much healthier this way. These are great on sandwiches and chopped up into salads.

Melissa's sells all kinds of seasonal produce include many organic varieties. They also have dried fruit, nuts, spices, beans and more.
