Sauve' it up!

A little blurb about cocoa butter. I am so glad the smell doesn't make me sick. It reminds me of times when I was a teenager and would lather up my skin with coconut smelling sun block and lay out in the sun for hours. Those were the days!

Now I only see the light of the sun through my jeep window on the way home. By the way, my left arm is looking nice and tan. hehehe. This summer has been so busy I haven't the time to just lay out. So this Saturday I am taking some time out for me and my daughter. Her BFF and mom is joining us on a little trip to the beach. I am looking forward to it, immensely!

But back to my blurb. I enjoy the smell of cocoa butter. Which is a huge plus considering I am dressing my tummy and hips with it every morning and every night. I have some stretch marks. Heck I have had 2 kids! However I am 5 months preggo with twins and look about like I did when I was 7 - 8 months preggo with my kids. Boy two sure does make you double in size.. hehehe. So my ritual of lathering up has started all over again.. only it is in the privacy of my bedroom.

Hope the cocoa butter works for you! I tried using the Palmer's cocoa butter when I was pregnant, but it made me itch so bad I scratched my belly until it started to bleed. I ended up just using plain old, fragrance-free lotion. Still got lots of stretch marks. LOL

Glad to see things are going well! I can't believe it's been 5 months already! Grow, little babies, grow!

Yeah, getting in the habit is the hardest part. Especially when I am so tired after a long day at that all I want to do is crawl into bed.
