During the summer of 2008, I interned for Stacey Caldwell at Thakoon in New York. Since then, we have become friends (and become pregnant!) I have been comparing notes with all of my mom-to-be and new-mom friends to find out their tips and tricks and Stacey answered one of my lingering questions: is the body pillow a scam? Or do I really need one?
“I have to admit that I was terrified to bring the body pillow that my dear friend Mia gave me early in my pregnancy into our bed. By the third trimester I wasn’t sleeping, and I decided one night couldn’t hurt. I kept thinking–my poor husband! I have to admit, it is now my favorite gift, and it turned my insomnia into blissful sleep. I haven’t told my husband it is probably staying even after this boy arrives… our secret.”
This weekend, Baxter and I decided to stop through Hot Springs, Arkansas on our way home from a family vacation at Lake Ouachita. I visited Hot Springs as a child and have vague memories of the bath houses, but as with everything, appreciated the experience so much more now that I am an adult.
We parked at one end of the main street, walked past all of the bath houses, down to the historic Arlington Hotel for lunch, and then back up the other side of the street alongside the shops.
Here is my photo journal of our two hours in Hot Springs:
