I definitely don’t think of this blog as a burden but I am realizing that it is something that takes some work. Yowza! I have a tentative schedule for July posts and that got kind of messed up when Baby Belle got sick on Friday. I had activities and recipes planned all weekend 😦
We have been very lucky to have a healthy happy girl thus far. On Friday morning when I sat Baby Belle down to have her ‘nana (banana) she didn’t touch it. She asks for ‘nana’s. They are her fave. I knew something was wrong.
45 minutes later she puked. The rest of the weekend she had explosive watery poop. She had some jello for lunch on Saturday. 5 hours later there was Kool-Aid in her diaper. I could have poured it in a glass. Jello turned to Kool-Aid y’all.
So with my lack of planning this weekend I am going to ride a Diva’s coat tails and steal all of her ideas. Katie does a lovely little thing called Diva Approved on her blog. I am going to do a little thing called Mama Approved. And this is what makes me Marvelous in my Monday! Too much, Katie? 🙂 But really? Blogging and reading blogs and making blogger friends is truly marvelous!
So here goes my first edition of Mama Approved:
I was craving salt at my office. It was either a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos or this. I chose this. It doesn’t have the best nutrition stats but the slight salt in the cashews curbed my craving. Pretty darn good.
I don’t drink a lot of soda. If I do crack open a Diet Coke I can usually only finish half of it. I spotted this at my local grocery and decided to give it a go. It brags about having the caffine you need without all the calories. It tasted like a watered down Yoo-Hoo to me but I thought it was pretty good. I would definitely choose this over Diet Coke any day!
My belly hurts today and I truly hope I am not catching what Baby Belle has/had. I needed some fizz and magically came across this in our office fridge. I don’t typically like flavored sparkling water unless it has a bunch of sugar substitute in it but YUM! Really refreshing for sure! I looked for a website but no dice? Anyone know what it is?
So that is my post today…riding on Katie’s coat tails. She is marvelous!
