Maternity Massage!

So I was very blessed today to go to an Aveda salon and enjoy an hour long massage.  It was part of my Christmas present and I also had a $15 discount.    :)  Yep one full hour of relaxation!  It felt so good on my lower back which has been giving me issues in the evenings.  

It was well worth the money and the lady was trained for doing pregnant women.  I laid on my side through majority of the massage but at one point I did go on my back but I did not last long there.  She did give me pillows for my legs under my knees but being 35 weeks pregnant it is to difficult to get comfortable and becomes difficult to breath while on my back.  I am glad I was not shy and just said this position is not working for me.  I was extremely comfortable on my sides especially with the pillows she gave me! :) 

Also, at one point I had to tell her I was very hot and she took one of the blankets off and then gave me a cool pack which really helped me get comfortable again!  

I think the best part was her working on my lower back it feels so great right now!!!  

Have any of you had a maternity massage?  What were your thoughts?


So nice! I never had one when I was pregnant. I didn't think you were ever supposed to lie on your back when you were pregnant. I remember if I ever ended up sleeping that way accidentally, I would wake up w/cramps. I bet it did feel good on your back. Yay! How long now? one month?
Well it was not flat on my back my head was elevated and I had a pillow under my legs, but it still did not last long in that position. It just gets hard to breath.

Yep one month left... kinda hoping more like 2 weeks. :)

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
