Hi, friends! Good afternoon!

Here is another edition of What Im Loving Lately for your viewing pleasure! What I am loving lately…

Murphy’s love for the Snoogle

Murphy has so much love for my Snoogle, it’s ridiculous. He’s always cuddled up in it, and it’s so adorable.

He honestly can’t get enough of it. Maybe I’ll just give it to him when I’m done with it?

This video

Runner Falls During The Race Of Her Life, Then Gets Up And Shocks The Crowd!

This video is awesome! The woman in it falls flat on her face during a championship race, but then gets right back up and wows the entire crowd with what she does. It’s pretty amazing to see. Definitely worth a watch!

“Show Dad How” book

Mal’s sister gave him a book called Show Dad How: The Brand-New Dad’s Guide to Baby’s First Year for his birthday, and it’s already been a great reference for the both of us.

The book is a fully illustrated, step-by-step guide to everything a dad needs to know from conception through his baby’s first year. It covers everything from childproofing your home to delivering a baby on the subway and everything in between.

Mal and I joked that this book was written just for us since it had a few pieces of advice that were pretty specific to our lives. For example, don’t name your child after your pug.

And how to customize your blue Subaru Impreza, which is Mal’s exact car. Haha! Anyway, it’s a really cool book and perfect for a first-time dad.

Summer Prints & Patterns

I love all of the summer prints and patterns that I am seeing lately. They are so fun, and I want them all. Perhaps a little shopping spree is in order after Baby H. arrives?

CineMama App

I wish I had discovered this app sooner, but I figured I’d pass it along for the moms-to-be!

CineMama is a fun tool created by March of Dimes to document your pregnancy and track your belly’s growth””just like the weekly photos that a lot of us take, but the app has a belly grid and photo editor, so you can line up your belly each week to see how it’s grown over time. There’s even a option to turn your photos into a movie at the end of your pregnancy. So cool!

Zulily

A bunch of you guys told me about Zulily when I first got pregnant. It’s a website for moms, babies, and kids where you can score daily deals on top brands. I actually signed up awhile ago and have popped over to the site a bunch of times to check out the various sales, so I was pumped when they reached out to me.

The folks at Zulily recently sent me a wonderful newborn care package, and I was so excited to see what was inside””everything from an adorable onesie to newborn diapers and wipes to Sophie the Giraffe. Thank you, Zulily!

  1. Sophie the Giraffe is amazing!! I hope Baby H loves it as much as my little guy. LIFESAVER during teething

  2. I love that Heather’s video is still being shared! 🙂 I went to high school with her (she was a couple years older) and I actually had the chance to run on a relay track team with her during my freshman year. She is crazy fast and extremely nice and genuine. She was a huge inspiration to teammates then and still continues to be an inspiration now in her professional running career.

  3. I’m totally getting that book for my husband. He was shocked to learn I couldn’t eat deli meat. Haha. He needs an education! Also, can we talk about Murphy in that photo of Mal reading the book? What is he doing?? So funny.

    These are all great suggestions.

  4. I have ordered from zulily before. It was some New balance workout gear and it was like cheaply made and cheaply priced. I guess you get what you pay for!

    1. @Heather J.:
      I ordered from Zulily once. The sweater I bought got a hole a week into owning it and the skirt of bought was see-through. I was not impressed with them.

  5. Lacinato kale…it makes the best kale chips! That book is brilliant! My niece has the same “pet” name as the dog..I call them both Molly! The dogs actual name is Magic, Naoise is my nieces name…it just sort of happened! A shopping spree as opposed to trip will definitely be in order! Loving finally being able to wear my Toms and not have cold feets!

  6. Grocery delivery. My husband and I started using Instacart for all of our groceries, and it has been a total game-changer for us. We love saving our precious weekend time by not making the trip. The service is only available in a couple major cities, and I believe Boston is one of them.

  7. Thanks for the link to that race. I hadn’t watched it yet, but that girl showed so much strength and courage to get up and win the freaking race!! Some kind of life metaphor right there. 🙂

  8. I love summer prints and patterns too! Lately I’ve really been into rompers. I think they’re so cute!

    That’s so nice of Zulily to give you a newborn care package! They have so many cute clothing on their site!

  9. What i am loving lately is lying in on a Saturday morning (rest day). I am sooo tired will all this new training for my triathlon in 6 weeks time.
    Pleased to hear that Murphy is on the mend.
    What a great idea a ‘how to guide’ for men.
    Enjoy your weekend as your due date draws ever closer – exciting 🙂

  10. I found Zulily after my pregnancy but they have so many great items for babies kids and of course, the new body shape post pregnancy, I have to stop myself from buying too much. Sophie the giraffe was a life saver with my son, guaranteed smile and/or laugh every time he looked at her from about 1 month until 10 months,. I also found some beautiful inexpensive clothes for the awkward stages for myself. Wearing too man old Maternity shirts because nothing else fits is a real downer.

  12. That illustrated book is hysterical! How funny that it seems like it was made just for you two!
    Murphy is slowly taking over all baby and pregnancy items. First he finally gets comfy about your belly, then he hops in the car seat, and now he’s all over the pillow. He does look awfully comfy, though.
    I’m loving mixing up my breakfasts. I finally made overnight oats for the first time today and it was delicious! I warmed it up a bit as it’s a bit cool here, but I can’t wait to have it when it’s warmer, too.

  13. I’m loving:
    -My Gap maternity jeans
    -Traders Joes S’mashing S’mores!
    -Hershey brought back large Krackel Bars! No need to buy a bag of the miniatures to pick out just the krackels any more!
    -Long walks with my dog now that the weather is getting better in New England!

  14. I’m loving my Jawbone UP 24. I got it for Valentine’s Day and I would have thought it was just a fad, but I’m still in love!!!!
