Gwendy’s Button Box – Book Review

One of my favorite authors from Childhood was Stephen King. I read “Eyes of the Dragon”, “Carrie” and “Firstarter” perhaps at younger ages than I should have and multiple times each. I was eager to read his novella collaboration with Richard Chipman, “Gwendy’s Button Box”.

Week 19 – Size of an Heirloom Tomato 

This week our baby is 18 weeks along which is the size of an heirloom tomato. While smaller than the bell pepper of a week ago it, and the baby, are longer in length at 6 inches. For size comparison, I put my Faith rubber wristlet on top of the tomato.

Adding Cloud Island at Target to Baby Registry 

Soon after I posted my Pregnancy Questions and Answers post, a friend who read it told me that Target was soon releasing a gender neutral line of baby items called Cloud Island. Intrigued by the idea, Matt and I went to Target today to see if we should add them to the places where we are registered which includes Buy Buy Baby which I blogged about as well. Target does not have consultants who help you select items, they just give you a scanner to scan items.

Yoga Mat and Blocks – Product Review 

For the past few weeks I’ve had the option to utilize yoga for exercise with a small class twice a week at Company C. Last week our instructor was unable to lead our class so we had off, and I definitely missed it, and my back was sorer for not having the class. So, with definite delight and gratitude that our classes are back on, I’m reviewing two products that have helped make the class better for me: Balance From GoYoga All Purpose 1/2-Inch Extra Thick High Density Anti-Tear Exercise Yoga Mat with Carrying Strap and Sturdy and Dense Foam Yoga Block (set of 2)  – Purple Color, Slip Resistant, 3x6x9.

Anniversary and Babymoon Weekend 

As is his tradition, Matt didn’t tell me where we were going for our Anniversary and Babymoon Weekend trip. He did give me some hints along the way including that he didn’t think there would be bellhops and it might be too cold to swim, yet we packed swimsuits in case it was not. I enjoyed our trip and was delighted when we pulled up to the Cavalier Oceanfront Resort in San Simeon. It is one of his mom’s favorite hotels and we’d stayed nearby yet, this was our first stay together at this location. When we got there we were ahead of the four p.m. check in time, so we ate lunch at Moonstone Beach Bar and Grill Restaurant.
