7 Quick Takes Friday #42

I’ve got a great deal to remind you about, a random product that I love, and a new idea to share, so if you don’t mind, I’d like to do that in today’s post instead of doing separate posts later.

A few months back, I did a post about Food On The Table meal planning system which includes an online app and an iPhone app. Just wanted to let you know that the Premium plan is still FREE if you use the code “SUMMERFREE” to sign up!

I really, really want to tell you all about this new type of Pilates I have discovered recently using LaGree fitness machines. Is anyone familiar with it? These machines allow you to pretty much work every single muscle in your entire body in a low-impact 50 minute session. Apparently I am the last to know about this, but it gives such a great workout. I did a class on Tuesday and I am still sore today. It is also SUPER EXPENSIVE. But, I am considering becoming an instructor. Am I crazy? I thought it might be a good way to work out and earn extra money. I really encourage you to check out the link to the machines and watch some of the videos. I am not getting paid to talk about this. I just value your feedback and wanted to share my discovery. Tell me if I am crazy to consider being an instructor??

I have one more random product mention that I’m not getting paid to promote but I just have to tell you about:

This clock has totally saved our mornings – Little Sir was getting up and coming into our room every morning at 5:30am-6:30am to crawl in bed and play with our iPhones or iPad or just bounce around being crazy. Gah! Now that we have this magical clock, we tell him “do not come into Mommy and Daddy’s room until the clock is green” and he WAITS! It is amazing. We set it for 7am. He is actually sleeping past 7am some days because he wakes up at 6:30am, can’t leave the room, and falls back asleep! I love this clock.

Little Sir is still potty learning but this week he started self-initiating! He TELLS me when he has to pee! He is still pooping in his undies, though 🙁 If you would love to hear all the sordid details of our potty learning journey, you can read my potty post on CottonBabies blog.

It’s June already, but even more exciting – 4th of July is coming up! One of our very favorite things to do in this area is attend the Addison Kaboom Town fireworks display. I will be talking a lot more about this in the next month or so, but I just wanted to let all my local folks know so you can put it on your calendars – July 3rd!
