things i love

The Wet Brush – I don’t like to condition my hair more than once a week, but that means that any time I shower in between conditionings my hair is kind of a beast to brush through when it’s wet. I used to skip showers just so that I wouldn’t have to deal with it. (Now I just skip them because…eh. Don’t need a good reason.) This brush really does make it a lot easier. It doesn’t get the tangles out on the first pass through or anything, but it doesn’t make me want to hack off my hair or arm, either.

Aden + Anais muslin blankets – Everyone says these are the best so I finally shelled out for them even though we had tons of other blankets. Now they’re the only ones I’ll use. They make swaddling super easy and I love how large and thin they are, so they’re a lot more versatile than other blankets.

Apple TV – David got this for his birthday a couple weeks before Liam was born and I am so grateful. We have the worst cable imaginable and considering I’ve spent most of my days resting on the couch it’s been so nice to have good TV to watch. I haven’t really watched TV at all since my last maternity leave, and without it the days can feel very long and lonely. With Apple TV I can watch most new shows, Netflix, and HBO Go. We also use it to play YouTube clips and songs for Meredith to dance to. :)

Q-snap frame – For any of you stitchers out there, this is an alternative to an embroidery hoop that I discovered a few months ago. It comes in a bunch of sizes but is a square or rectangle shape. I find it a lot easier to hold and manipulate than a hoop.

The Honest Company diapers & wipes – We were given a generous gift by my brother and SIL to try this out, so I went ahead and signed up for the diapers and wipes bundle. So far it’s awesome and I’m afraid I’m going to be addicted. The diapers are super cute and Liam has not had a blowout yet. They are natural and eco-friendly and the bundles are really customizable. This is working great for us right now, but I am not sure yet what we are going to continue to do for the whole diaper situation. But that’s a topic for another day, and I’m sure you can’t wait. :)

    I want apple tv but I don’t know how to hook it up to my parents’ giant built in tv.

    Yeah don’t ask me, when we hooked it up at first we had tons of problems with our wifi and we had to get Scott to come over and fix us up!

    I got a Q-snap frame recently and…I’m not totally in love. There are some things I like (how easy it is to pull the fabric tight and how it doesn’t leave sharp indentions in the fabric) but others I don’t (mainly, I find it somewhat uncomfortable to hold).

    What size do you have? I got an 8×8 but given my discomfort I’m wondering if maybe the larger ones are better, so I could rest one side in my lap.

    From kapachino:

    That’s interesting; I have an 8×8 too and I love the size. I find it easier to grip than a hoop, although it is heavier so I can see why you might not like that aspect. I’ve never tried the bigger sizes!

    Yes, those swaddling blankets are the best! I’m still swaddling my 6 mo old, so I have to have big ones. I’ll have to check out that snap frame, thanks for the tip!
