Don't worry, this isn't a full-on link-list post, I know better than to be entirely absent from the interwebs for 3 months and then come back and act like I have a wealth of good clicks for you, this is mostly a good old fashioned Ana-ramble post, with a few good places to click within (and completely random pictures, unrelated to the content).
First things first, Kate from the wonderfully unique and fun Catholic baby name blog, Sanctinomina, wrote a positively delightful post with baby name suggestions for the fifth Hahn nugget and they are so worth reading. We do not know baby Hahn's gender yet, but are planning to find out and I am especially thrilled about her baby girl name ideas because Mike and I are fresh out of ideas for girls. What can I say? We've used all the ones we like? Yes, I'll say that for now. But she has actually got me thinking with some really beautiful ideas. Click thee over and read!
Have I ever told you that I am the least, the very least crunchy person in all the world? I am. I am going to go ahead and say that it's because being crunchy is a little too trendy for me right now (but it's also because I'm lazy. And poor), so I've been doing what I do with all trendy things and staying far away from most overly crunchy things. You see, I am one of those people who very deliberately doesn't see the movies everyone won't stop talking about (we still have not viewed Frozen here in our home with 3 small females), I could not tell you with any degree of accuracy any currently popular songs, I STILL HAVE A FLIP PHONE, and I DON'T HAVE A TEXTING PLAN. There, I said it, and that's just me. I take a little bit of pride in these things insofar as I can act like a 90 year old woman and whine about "those kids with their noses in their smart phones all day" and it's legit because I kind of am.
So it pretty much goes without saying that 1) I've never used dry shampoo, 2) I don't eat kale (the horror! I know!) And 3) I am not an essential oils user. Please don't cast the first stone! If you're utterly appalled, then you'll be pleased to learn that as of a couple if months ago when sweet Haley asked me about doing a little review/giveaway for her Young Living oils, I have now dabbled the tiniest bit in oils.
Thieves and thoroughly enjoyed it, and have recently gotten really desperate and rubbed some on my temples to try to alleviate yet another pregnancy migraine, which mostly just made me smell like I washed my hair with a chai latte from Starbucks and in the end I think it was the chugging of a cup of coffee with a dose of Tylenol that did the trick with the headache. I told you, I'm not crunchy, but the mere fact that I tried an essential oil as a remedy for anything is a huge step for me, I'm getting there.
So give me all your tips! How do you use your oils? I think I need a diffuser to be a true essential oils user, but I'm sure I'm ready to take that kind of step yet. I'm all ears!
Haley is running a promo right now where she is offering $20 cash back or $25 credit on starter kits until the end of January, so it's a good month to get going. If you're looking to get started with oils, definitely hit up Haley! And as a little treat, I'm sending a bottle of Thieves to one lucky reader, just comment below and I'll choose a winner next week!
