We got a pool!

ok, really- my mother in law bought it, hubby blew it up and I came home to it.  It's a kiddie pool. The girls love it. Quick way to beat the summer heat!
 yes, my ankles are swollen.  it was the end of the day!

I went to a naturally centered mom/baby expo put on by Healthy Baby Happy Earth this past Saturday and it was great! Everything from the workshops to the exhibitors was beautifully done.  Come to find out, this was their very first expo! The event was held at Glendale Civic Center and I don't think they could have chosen a better location.  Tons of great sponsors, lots of fun freebies and amazing giveaways! The workshops that were offered included breastfeeding, midwifery education, cloth diapering, yoga, infant massage, so much wonderful information! Exhibitors included doulas, midwives, ob/gyns, belly casters, authors, belly casters, photograhers, cloth diaper services, inventors, Medela breastfeeding products, and the Bump.  This was not one of those expos where you feel overwhelmed, cramped or pressured into visiting every booth.  The vibe was so light and the atmosphere was so positive that I honestly could have stayed all day!
      I saw mamas nursing their babies without hesitation (as it should be), mamas wearing their babies and everyone genuinely enjoying themselves.  I only wish that some of my friends were there- not necessarily because of the freebies, but to learn about all of their options when it comes to birth and feeding their babies.  This expo was the perfect platform for learning and not judging. (ok, off my soapbox now!)
This is all the stuff I got! Yes, that's a box of cereal! ;)
All I can say is that I am already looking forward to next year's Happy Baby Healthy Earth Expo!

Random thought,

but hopefully you've been reading my blog long enough to notice that I looooooooooooovvvve a good deal, especially if it's combined with coupons or free shipping! However, there are some things that I just don't buy based strictly on principality (ie- chemically based air fresheners, certain frozen foods, you catch my drift) and whether or not I am actually going to use said product (ie- 10 boxes of paperclips!).  Same thing goes for gifts- I like to know or think that the recipient is going to love and use what we give to them, ya dig? I love to get things that I know I will use (or anyone else in my family).  I also apply this to contests I enter and surveys I sign up for, because I don't like to end up with a bunch of unused stuff in my already cluttered house!  I got tea and skivvies in the mail today! Both will get used for sure. At the same time, I got sunblock in a sampler box I recieved a few weeks ago.  I'll pass on the sunblock thanks. ;) So with this, I might put unused samples in a gift basket or donate to a shelter or a similar organization.

What do you do with free products that you don't use?

In the mail today....

Three, yes three packages! I love getting stuff in the mail!

1. My Urban Fluff one size AIO diapers! And yes lovelies, that is a pink and green one right there.  Pinkies up!


2. My first ever order from 6pm- a pair of Simple shoes.  They had good reviews and were on crazy sale and you know I can't pass up a good deal!

3. Finally, a pair of wide leg jeans I got off of ebay. I love wide leg jeans! I'm going to need to hem them, but what else is new? ha.
