Friday Favorites 47 Summer

Woah! Can you believe it’s already Friday?! With the 4th of July falling on a Wednesday this year my work week equilibrium has been totally thrown off! But I’ll take a fast approaching weekend over a slow one any day!

If you missed this weeks earlier posts be sure to check them out here:

Friday Favorites #47

Jett’s New Desire to Sunbathe

Here in New Hampshire we have been stuck in a crazy heat wave. With most days in the upper 90’s and humidity well above 70% I figured Jett would be living indoors with the AC… or at least under the shade of a tree when he was outside. But nope! Our dog begs to be let outside, then proceeds to lay in the direct sunlight in the middle of the yard. Sometimes I don’t understand him… at all.

 

New Pod Pump Site

For those of you who follow me on instagram you’ve probably already seen this one… but for those who haven’t… check out my new favorite pump location: the forearm! I was a bit nervous because there isn’t much to pinch, but absorption has been amazing, it hasn’t gotten in the way, and it didn’t hurt going in (or even after insertion).

 

Twig for a Bookmark

I started a new book earlier this week (Ina May’s Guide to Breastfeeding – so good by the way!!) and realized I left my bookmark inside. I could have easily folded down the corner of the page, but for some reason that irks me, so instead I grabbed a twig. You’d think that since it’s been almost a week now I would have replaced the twig with an actual bookmark, but alas, the twig is still there and it makes me laugh every time I see that I’m still using it.

 

Stasher Bags

Have you guys heard of these bags? They are reusable silicone baggies! I got them on Amazon here, and I’m pretty sure Target carries them too. They are perfect for lunches and snacks when you don’t want to pack a clunky piece of glass Tupperware around.
