Over the holidays, we found out that my brother-in-law Jon proposed to his girlfriend Kristina! So happy for them! And of course, immediately after the engagement announcement, us girls started wedding planning. It’s a part of our girly DNA. Tony, Frankie, and I were asked to stand up, and while the wedding is not happening until the fall of 2013, I automatically had a thought: I will have to breastfeed in my bridesmaid dress. Not Frankie (fingers crossed that he’ll be weaned by then!), but the future baby of mine yet to be born, but (hopefully!) born in the next two years (and hopefully BEFORE the wedding – no one likes to be a preggo bridesmaid).
Long story short, my Google searches for nursing bridesmaid dresses brought me to an awesome breastfeeding fashion blog Milkfriendly. Let me first say, this chick is amazing. She actually manages to make boobie-accessible clothing look good. Damn good. Definitely worth checking out.
And, Milkfriendly’s writer, Maryam, is also the co-owner and co-founder of Green Your Air, a company that sells houseplants that help clean your house of nasty toxins and such. Our houses are filled with all sorts of toxins – paint fumes, cheap wood furniture, and cleaning products, all that can off gas very dangerous chemicals into our indoor air. The Green Your Air website offers more in-depth information and the scientific research behind this idea, which you can find here.
Oh, and I did I mention that the containers are adorable? They would make a nice gift…hmmm, maybe for a future engagement party I will be invited to? I especially like their baby gift idea – a mini plant in either a pink or blue planter. Both my friend Kari and my sister-in-law Sam are pregnant with their third baby (and due about the same time!), and honestly, isn’t it hard to buy something for the experienced mom? I mean, they already own all the necessities, and unless the baby is of a different gender (Kari has all boys and Sam has all girls), clothes are superfluous. But I love the idea of a cute plant that actually does baby good.
