Favorite Things of the Moment

I thought I would post a few things that I am in love with at the moment... but first I just need to vent... The doorbell rang and it is this lady trying to sell childrens books for 400 bucks. Grant answered the door but he was trying to leave for work, so he had to feed me to the wolf. And first thing she says is "Wow, you are so big! How much longer do you have?" And then she followed that up with a "Is there more than one baby in there?" Just a note to all door-to-door salespeople... don't make the potential buyer angry before you even start your shpeel! She was getting on my nerves quick! Laughing at her own jokes and blah blah blah. And then I completely lost interest when she said "I personally deliver the books and I send a card letting you know what day I will be coming over so you can make me cookies. What kind of cookies will you be making for me?" Ya... NO! Anyway, beware of a lady with a European accent and a big tote of books, she is on the move.

Back to my fave things

First is this maternity belt that I am modeling in the picture. It can be worn under clothes but when it is super hot out it just feels like another hot layer on my skin. But this baby has been sitting so low and my dr says he is head down. So I always feel so much pressure and I have to pee every second. But the belt takes so much pressure off of my pubic bone and my bladder, it has been so nice. I always need it when I'll be standing lots like shopping or on a walk.

And I LOVE Almay's Intense i-Color Collection. They have eye shadows specifically for your eye color. I always like trying new colors but sometimes it is hard to get my hazel color to pop. Almay has had there "Bring Out" collections out for a long time but the "Play Up" collections are new and I am in love. There are 3 shadows, liquid liner and mascara.
These are the "bring out" shades

These are new "play up" shades
Just go to to see all the shades for your eye color :)

And I can't live without my lip plumper lip gloss by Bare Escentuals!

Omg, Nat that sales lady needed to have a little taste of the BACK OF YOUR HAND! Who would say such things?! Not only that but, I'm in shock because evertime I see you cause you look so small to me. I feel like you have stayed the same size for the past couple months! Only a forgiener would talk like that to a 8 month pregnant lady! And what the heck...make her cookies?! What a psycho!
I always love reading about other people's favorite things. Your makeup always looks so good. I'm glad to know that you use Almay eyeshadow. I need to go check out the right shades for my eye color.
I also love your trendy belt you're bringing in style! Hey, I say whatever works! Especially when you are 8 mons preggers, you can get away with it!

Geez that lady sounded like a real winner! What a hag! The story was funny tho... lol! The thing that I have found is that door to door sales people usually are without people skills. I wish I could've seen your face when she started into hot water. Tee hee. Well if you want my opinion... you look absolutely beautiful! When you start feeling down on yourself I want you to picture what I will look like pregnant and then that should make you feel better.
You have told me about the eyeshadows before and I looove the way it looks on you. I love that lipgloss too!
Hey pook I just want you to know... I love you! I miss you so much.
