Staying Fit with CrowdTap and Old Navy

There aren't many things that are funnier than trying on non-maternity activewear when you are 7 months pregnant.  
But I have no complaints!  
CrowdTap and Old Navy sent coupons for a free top and bottom from Old Navy's Activewear Line for me and a friend. 
When laughing it's always good to have a friend.  

 The stripes looked cute on the hanger!
 Laughing friend.

Stripes are looking cute! 
I saw this drawstring top in cobalt, but it wasn't available in my size.  I was so sad.  I ended up with a  gray one and I am hoping that while it fits even now that it's bagginess will work wonders on hiding my post-baby jiggle.

Woolite samples from Crowdtap

Crowdtap sent me samples of Woolite to pass out and use.  
For my sample, I couldn't think of anything better than to wash the kids dirty winter coats.  With warm weather creeping up on us, I am ready to pack away our winter coats.  
Since we use our hand-me-downs so well,  I wanted to be sure to clean the coats before storing them for the next kid.

Let me just say the coats were DIRTY!

They came so clean after using my Woolite sample on them. 
Also, I didn't notice any wear or fading after washing and drying them.

Thanks Woolite and Crowdtap!

Old Navy Tees for FREE!

So Old Navy and Crowtap do it again!  
This time I was able to get two free tees and bring my sister who got two free ones, too!

 I think everything I tried on was blue or pink or striped.  
I LOVE the blue stripes below.
And I think this one is long enough to keep fitting....
 Nice wide stripes below, but too short for much more baby growth!

And what can be better than some kid-free time in the store with your sister?  
Why, getting the tops for free!
 See that subtotal?  It was zero!  My cashier couldn't believe it!  
It was great and I got to tell her all about how I love Crowdtap!

Who wants to play Isrealites?

Time to laugh

We have had colds for a hearty week.
When we seemed to be recovering I got knocked out by some kind of horrible nastiness.  
I am slowly feeling better and today (finally) I feel like I have energy for my day.
Then this morning came sad news.
Nothing like sadness to take out your motivation for the day.
we took a little break
and we laughed at ourselves.

A joyful heart is good medicine.
Proverbs 17:22

Getting Sporty with Crowdtap and Old Navy

I want to introduce you to Deanna.  
She's the world's best babysitter.  
She is cheerful and fun and loves to play with the kids.  
It's always comical to hear them talk about their adventures with her from the night before as they debrief me at breakfast the next morning.
Deanna is a runner and we have seen her run in a handful of local races that Dave has run also.

For all these reasons, it was so fun for me to call Deanna to ask if she could meet me at Old Navy.  Old Navy and Crowdtap sent me two coupons for FREE active wear, so we could each pick a top and a bottom.  

Fortunately, Deanna works just minutes form our Old Navy and we could meet there over her lunch.

It was so much fun!  In the end, we both picked the same top and bottom.  The bright blue jackets and black bottoms.

Sisters and Dresses

On Sunday after church, Emily and I met at Old Navy.  
Crowdtap sent me coupons for me and a friend to each pick a free dress at Old Navy.

Here are some that we tried on:  
 Loved this hot pink belt.
 Emily wasn't too crazy about taking pictures, but she was a good sport.

 I needed a timer and a tripod!
Loved the cobalt blue color - but the skirt felt a little short and the neckline was a little too scooped.
Based on my current obsession with stripes, I loved this before I even tried it on.

It was such fun to have girl time with my best friend.

Which dress would you vote for?  Any guesses?
