Losing a lot of hair 4 months after giving birth

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Wednesday, July 2, 2014, In : Motherhood 
Around 4 months after giving birth, I noticed a lot of hair from my head is falling out every time I finished showering and combing my hair. I was really worried. I wondered if it's because I lost my pregnancy weight so fast? I am also breastfeeding so I thought maybe it's because a lot of the nutrients is going to the baby during this time through my breast milk. 

Then I asked my friend who has two kids if she went through the same thing. She said she did and that the doctor told her that 80%...

World of Coca Cola in Atlanta, Georgia was a wonderful experience

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Sunday, June 15, 2014,
When we went to the World of Coca Cola in Atlanta, Georgia, it became the highlight of my entire 4 day, 3 night stay! It felt like Disneyland. With the Coca Cola theme song playing in the background at all times, it really makes you realize what an amazing brand Coca Cola has been for over 100 years. There's so much nostalgia value. You learn the history and the invention of Cola Cola, how it turned into a big business and how it is now an international brand. You also get to try 65 flavors. ...

10 simple things that is now a luxury for a breastfeeding mother

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Thursday, April 3, 2014, In : Motherhood 
It seems like nowadays, breastfeeding and pumping are consuming most of my time. Ever since I had mastitis (see older blog post), I have been religiously pumping every 3-5 hours (depending on how much my son fed from my breasts) so that I don't get too engorged and feel pain again. Between diaper changes, feeding, comforting the baby when it's fussy time, bath time and comforting him to sleep, pumping is my #1 priority for any free time I have. Here are the things I miss since giving birth to...

Saving money by covering worn out office arm chairs with felt

Posted by sailorgirlfriend.com on Thursday, October 24, 2013,
I recently got a new office with a real estate company and they provided me with a desk, cabinet, and guest chairs but I needed an office chair for myself. I have an old office chair from home but the vinyl on the arm chairs are worn out. Everything else looked fine. I decided to save money and just cover the arm chairs. 

I went to Joann's to look for some materials and decided on getting a piece of black felt from the store and using the bond glue I already I had at home. It costs me $.25. If...

What I miss most, now that I am pregnant

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Tuesday, September 17, 2013, In : Motherhood 
When I found out I was pregnant, I cut out alcohol, caffeine and tried to stay far away from people who smoke cigarettes as much as possible. 

I must admit, I did have decaffeinated coffee once on a plane and had a few sips from my husband's coke. But that was all. I don't miss drinking alcohol at all but I do miss drinking my caramel frappucino from Starbucks. I've been drinking those since I was in college, or was it late high school? Anyway, I miss my coffee.

Instead of coffee, I would drink...

17 weeks pregnant and still not craving meat. Maybe I'm becoming a vegetarian?

Posted by Sailor Girlfriend on Wednesday, September 4, 2013, In : Motherhood 
This is my very first pregnancy and ever since the first trimester, I have not been craving meat. It actually made me really nauseous thinking about eating meat so I stayed away from it as much as possible. The things I do crave are cereal with milk, ice cream, cheese, salads and fruits. Occasionally I'll crave some ramen noodles with a crack of an egg. It's kind of an easy egg drop soup for me. I feel like I'm becoming more of a vegetarian since I've gotten pregnant. I guess my body doesn't ...

Driving in the fog at 6am in the morning isn't your ideal road trip but when you really need to get someplace in a short amount of time, you make sacrifices! Remember to drink coffee.

If you'd like to really surprise and make your lover or love ones feel special, order freshly chocolate-dipped strawberries and send it them.
