But if we don’t try to slow down and do a little something for ourselves, not only do with risk running ourselves into the ground and ending up sick for the actual holidays, but often we begin to resent the holidays and all we do for everyone else.
So what are you doing for yourself this holiday season? I know its not the ideal time to drop a ton of cash on the uber expensive trip to the spa for a full day of pampering that we really all deserve. But how about snuggling up with a great book and a cup of hot chocolate, or coffee (if that’s your thing, blech).
If this sounds great to you, I can TOTALLY help. You see I’m giving away a super cool Tassimo T20 Brewbot by Bosch to handle that hot chocolate or coffee AND I’m giving away a copy of a great book for all mama’s…You’ll Lose the Baby Weight: (And Other Lies about Pregnancy and Childbirth).
Author, Dawn Meehan is a friend of mine and hysterical blogger and author. She also happens to be the mother of 6, so she knows a LITTLE about this whole pregnancy thing. Whether you’re expecting your first child or your ‘baby’ is already a teenager, this book with have you nodding along in agreement and literally laughing out loud. What better way to treat yourself and relax this holiday season with some good belly laugh.
I love Dawn’s honest take on what pregnancy and child birth are REALLY like. Dawn pulls no punches in the comical but brutally honest view of all things pregnancy and labor related such as heart burn, insomnia, weight gain, mood swings, back aches, bladder control and labor pains!
Check out the clip below to see Dawn present some of the material from her book stand up style, from her book launch.
