Hi, friends!

My recent “What I’m Loving Lately” post was so fun to write and such a hit with you guys, I decided to write another one this week. That said, here’s what I’m loving lately!


I’m really starting to enjoy spinning. I recently bought a Groupon to a local studio, so I’ve been popping in about once a week to take an hour-long class. In the past, I always thought spinning was kind of boring, but I’m really starting to dig it, especially since it’s not too hard on your body, which I definitely appreciate now that I am pregnant.

Old Navy Maternity Rockstar Low-Panel Jeggings

Last week, I totally got sucked into one of those email blasts advertising a sale at Old Navy. I was *only* planning to do a little window shopping since I just purchased a bunch of new maternity clothes, but I ended up buying a pair of Maternity Rockstar Low-Panel Jeggings. Oops. But, hey, they were on clearance (just $14.97), and I got free shipping with my Luxe BR card and 7% cash back through Ebates. Not too bad, right? And they’re super comfy. Maternity pants rule. I’m actually still debating buying a pair of the Maternity Full Panel Skinny Jeans, but I’m waiting patiently for them to go on sale since I don’t quite need them yet.

Almond butter + marmalade

Ever since I created a delicious Toasted Almond Butter & Marmalade Sandwich (with Turkey Bacon) recipe for the Almond Board of California, I’ve been loving the flavor combination. I’ve been mixing almond butter and marmalade into oatmeal and spreading it on toasted English muffins and two-ingredient pancakes. Mmm! So good!

Belli products

A few weeks ago, I bought some Belli Elasticity Belly Oil, which I really love and, since then, I’ve purchased a couple more products from the line: Belli Acne Control Spot Treatment and Belli Skin Care Fresh Start Pre-Treatment Scrub. Thanks to some crazy pregnancy hormones, I’ve had a few bad breakouts during my second trimester, so I figured a more natural approach to treating them would be the best option for Baby Haupert.

Before I bought these Belli products, I would only treat my breakouts a few times a week with a very small amount of acne product, which honestly didn’t do much. I am definitely seeing an improvement with the Belli Acne Control Spot Treatment, but probably because I’m using it on a regular basis. (There’s also a Belli Anti Blemish Facial Wash in the line, which I didn’t buy, but only because I have a face wash that I like.) The Belli Skin Care Fresh Start Pre-Treatment Scrub is AMAZING! It’s a fine grain, minty and refreshing scrub that exfoliates and makes my skin so soft. I love it so much, and I totally plan to keep buying it even after pregnancy.

Lucie’s List

Elizabeth told me about Lucie’s List the other day, and it’s already been so helpful, especially with regard to the baby registry stuff and newborn essentials. (Mal and I are so clueless!) Be sure to sign up for the email updates!
