Friday Favorites


It's Friday and that means I'm sharing some of my favorites with you.  What a fun meme this is, as I so enjoy reading others entries on their favorite things and I also enjoy sharing mine with you. Here's to another Friday Favorites...........
My very favorite this Friday is looking at this "baby bump" picture of our daughter.  Here she is last week, at the 26 week mark and doing great!  This is her 5th pregnancy in the past 4 years and those all resulted in miscarriages from 12 weeks all the say to 19 weeks.  What a journey and what a testimony she and our SIL have been to the faithfulness of God through the dark days they have traveled.  We can hardly wait to meet this little fella sometime around the middle of Oct.
~~~~~~ 
Okay, if you are the Momma or Grandmother to a little one then you must know about this!  I saw it on Zulily some time back and knew that a little one was arriving soon and this could really be handy.  I just got it out last week to use with our Andi Kate who just turned 5 months old.  I did put her in it for about 10 minutes last week but she will enjoy it more in about another month.  But, it is so portable and has a neat bag to store it in or carry it in.  It has a place to attach toys and is made of a canvas type material.  I think they are regularly about $40 but I got mine for $29.  I'm pretty sure  it's going to be worth way more than I paid for it.  It sure beats the socks off those big walker "thingys."
~~~~~~
Folks, if you are a walker then you need to get yourself a pair of these Shape Ups by Skechers. I have had mine for about 3 years and I absolutely love them.  I only wear mine when I do my morning treadmill walk but I suppose they could be worn otherwise. ~they are just NOT very attractive~  They have a rocker bottom that helps you to roll your foot correctly as you walk, which, supposedly, causes more toning advantages in the legs and thighs. ~always a good thing~  I got mine strictly for the comfort and any other benefit is just icing on the cake for me.  They feel a bit funny when you first put them on because they are very elevated.
~~~~~~ 
Okay, everyone should know about these little jewels.  You may be thinking it looks like a black file folder, what could be so great about it.  Well, it comes flat and you can fill it to it's capacity with air or like me, I have about 3 puffs of air in mine. You inflate it for your comfort and a little air in mine is all I need.  I have it in my vehicle and drive with it behind my lower back and it causes your back to float.  It's unbelievably comfortable!  I had some serious lower back issues about 8 years ago and when my Chiropractor resolved my issues he suggested I get one of these to help keep my back in alignment and for comfort.  Well, I was very skeptical but soon became a walking advertisement for it. Mine is by BodyRyzm and cost about $50.  It is not only for car use, but anywhere besides upholstered furniture.  (upholstered furniture is not firm enough for the vitalizer to do any good) And, as you can see in the picture on the box you can also sit directly on it, which I understand is very helpful to someone with tailbone issues.  I'm thinking it would feel mighty good for someone that sits in an office chair all day.  So, there you have it, go get yourself one and you can thank me later. ~smile~
Have yourself a wonderful weekend!  It's hotter than hot here in NE Louisiana, but hey, after the winter we had, I'm trying not to complain.

  1. I have lower back issues, too, especially if I sit at the sewing machine too long. I think I might have to get one of those back vitalizers! Thanks for sharing.
