First Trimester Favs

I thought I'd put together a list of my favorite things during my first trimester, just a few things that helped get me through:)  You can also check out my maternity favorites here from when I was pregnant with Charlie.

1.  My mom turned me on to this awesome mascara (we were both blessed with the worlds shortest eyelashes) that I quickly became obsessed with the moment I tried it.  On those mornings when I had negative 0 seconds to get myself ready for work and the dude ready for his day because I couldn't get out of bed this mascara saved my life.  It not only eliminates the need for eye liner it totally made my short lashed look extra long and luscious.  Love!

2.  This cardigan is A. on sale right now and B. not maternity so everyone can enjoy.  I am not kidding when I say I wear it at least twice a week.  Once to work and then once or twice on the weekend. I'm definitely going to snag a couple other colors since I'm obviously getting my monies worth.

3.  La Croix's are my jam!  Zero calories and since Ben doesn't like them I don't have to share.  My in laws keep a stash at their house just for me:) Boom!

4.  The BKR water bottles are so cute!  They're BPA-free, glass and silicone.  I am trying to drink more water.  Ben and I are going to get one of those big Culligan water dispensers in our office too!

5. My Bookshout app must know I'm pregnant because I got an email with a free download of Jenny McCarthy's Belly laughs which is pretty good!  Even though I'm not a huge fan of hers I'd still recommend it.  I haven't finished it yet but so far it's been hilarious and very candid!  Good read if you have one or five kids:)

This past weekend Ben, Charlie and I hit up the I-X Center for the Home Improvement show to get some ideas for our new home.  It wasn't what we thought it was going to be so we'll have to head back next month for the Home and Garden show.  We did realize while we were there that Charlie needs one of those monster play sets at the new house.  He loved the ones they have on display.  He had such a good time so the trip wasn't a total waste.

This past weekend we also completely changed our house floor plan. Our builder probably hates us. Haha This new floor plan just makes more sense for our growing family.  It has some great features that our old plan didn't have and it's a lot bigger.  We also got some disturbing news about our property which was a bummer but nothing that I think will hold us back from breaking ground in a few months.  *fingers crossed*

Happy Weekend, Friends!!
