Loving Lately: Mom of 3/Holiday Edition

These jeans are the ideal combination of comfort, style, and reasonable price point. They look and fit great, especially for this post-partum mom bod, and they are super comfortable with the elastic waistband. I’ve been a convert to high-waisted jeans in the last year or so (although, you won’t see me tucking my shirts in) and these jeggings come up to just below my belly button. Best of all, they don’t sag or stretch out, even after wearing a few days in a row! Which, obviously, is my modus operandi right now.
Christmas music is playing constantly in my house or car during this time of year. I love hearing seasonal tunes in the background throughout my day, and the collections by Windham Hill are lovely renderings of traditional favorites. Also, see below… I’ve been listening to this album on my Amazon Music account!
3. Technology, in general
And Amazon, specifically. I’ve ordered pretty much all of my Christmas presents here, as well as some new mom/baby essentials — from diapers and wipes to nursing tanks and compression leggings. And you can’t beat Prime 2-day shipping. We also use the Amazon Firestick with our television, and this means plenty of catching up on shows while I’m on “maternity leave”! My favorite shows lately have been Outlander, Poldark and Fixer Upper. I also love the Kindle app on my iPhone, since I enjoy reading during those late-night nursing sessions, and also the BabyHub app for tracking feedings.
4. All the coffee
Caffeine is a necessity when running on 2-3 hours of sleep at a time, and my older children are early risers, so dragging myself out of bed by 6am requires coffee ready in an instant. Pop a pod in the Keurig and we’re ready to go! Once again, ordering through Amazon makes it super easy to keep these on hand!
I have all kinds of bag, purses, wallets, satchels and other carrying accessories (what woman doesn’t!), but not all of them are “diaper friendly”. This little organizer tote makes all the difference. Slide it into a regular purse or satchel, and suddenly it becomes a diaper bag! It also makes for much easier transition between purses — mom’s gotta stay stylish, you know. 😉

I enjoy lighting scented candles year-round, but something about the smell of a Christmas tree, gingerbread or peppermint permeating the house really gets me in the holiday mood. These cute little tins by Paddywax also make great gifts or stocking stuffers!

What are your favorites this time of year?
