jennibost I'm trying to be better about connecting with newsletter subscribers more regularly and always want to make sure they get something fun (whether a new printable, tutorial, secret giveaway or special) in every issue. This past Sunday I gave free printable menu planning sheets and I'm excitedly planning my next newsletter. What things do you like receiving in email newsletters? What turns you off? 2d

jennibost It's #movienight at the Bost house tonight. Homemade stove top popcorn with fun toppings and red vines. I asked for m&ms too, but @brianbostpdx said that was too much! 4d

jennibost I love to #DIY except when it comes to large paint projects. They drive me batty- yet, I keep doing them because I get results like this. The table used to be old and black, the chairs red and brown. I love the difference, but was not a fan of the process. More about this project #ontheblog - #linkinprofile ! love to paint or hate it? 6d

jennibost Went to a #tiki bar for #girlsnight - they had the BEST NA drinks. 2w
  •   passionfruitads where? looks awesome 2w
  •   jennibost @passionfruitads place is very fun. Fake thunderstorms and completely decked out. The drink list was insane and many were served aflame! It's on NE Broadway and 27th called Hale Pele. 2w
  •   baconluv My fave bar! And yes, best mocktails I've had in PDX! 2w

jennibost These swollen ankles deserve more swanky hotel baths. #pregnantinsummer #treatyourself 3w
  •   misslissa628 Poor ankles!! 3w
  •   jennibost @misslissa628 I don't know what's up with this pregnancy but everything is nuts! Yesterday one ankle was three times bigger than the other (both swollen) and they almost brought me in to check for blood clots, but ultimately think it's just adema. I did this at the end of my first pregnancy... But, not this early. How have you been? 3w
  •   leahmue My doc said if I started to get swollen to get compression socks. Maybe try that? 3w
  •   jennibost @leahmue buying today! Thanks!! Eeee! I'm just so excited for you! 3w
  •   leahmue Yay! I hope they work let me know :) I know it's unreal some days, I'm hoping I'll be feeling better soon! we find out what we are having mid August 3w
  •   misslissa628 Oh my! Well, it has been crazy hot and that doesn't help things! I got a bit swollen on 4th of July just from a few hours of being outside. Otherwise this pregnancy has definitely been harder than my other two. Not anything major, just general exhaustion and feeling unwell. So much for the golden second trimester for me this time! I hope your ankles get a break and that you're otherwise feeling well @jennibost 3w
  •   jennibost @leahmue yay! That is such a fun time. I hope the better days come to you soon! 3w
  •   jennibost @misslissa628 yeah, no golden second tri for me either. I've gotten so many infections that I feel like a pin cushion and have officially been put on "high risk" status. Boo. But, the baby is well and his little kicks help with the bad feelings. I'm glad this will be my last though. Glad we both get cooler weather for a bit! :) 3w

jennibost I'm super happy about how last night's dinner went. Basically cooking, feeding friends and celebrating are my love language. I'm gonna dream about each course for the next few evenings. Candle light, outdoors, catching up with good friends and enjoying tasty treats throughout a long summer evening is what life is about. #myheaven #comingtotheblogsoon 1mon
  •   willrunforpasta Yum!! Basically, when I think if you, Wonder Woman comes to mind 🏻 1mon
  •   jennibost @willrunforpasta haha- thank you. Not feeling so wonderful today-- still in bed from just pure exhaustion from prepping and executing this thing. :) it wasn't really planned so much as I got a wild hair and decided I had to do this. Little babe in my belly makes me slow down nowadays. But, I appreciate it. It's all worth the work when it ends in an evening like last night. :) I wanna have a small blogger lady get together soon in the back yard area. July is crazy, but August or September would be fun. 1mon

jennibost After my hair experiment- for a girl who barely has waves this is pretty life changing. I always have to do curlers, rag curls, or pin curls to sleep and get curls or beach waves the next day and I hate sleeping on all that. Tried a new method I saw on a YouTube video (there are a ton out there) - she called the technique "plunking" - and was able to actually sleep last night and pulled my hair out to see shiny, pretty curls/waves. Bangs were pretty crazy, but overall I feel it was a success. I'd love to see someone with real curls do this technique. 1mon

jennibost #widn trying out a YouTube tutorial for pretty, frizz free curls. Why yes, that is a t-shirt on my head. #feelingsilly 1mon
  •   sarahmasoni We use to tie socks in our hair and sleep that way to have curls in the morning 😎 1mon
  •   jennibost @sarahmasoni haha- totally! I've got fairly wavy hair and this is a tutorial for people with curls already, so I am hoping for nice beach waves. I've done everything from rag curls to twists with bobby pins and they are all so uncomfortable for sleeping. I was hoping that the T-shirt would be doable while sleeping. We will see if it works tomorrow! :) 1mon
  •   thespicybee Can't wait to see results! 1mon
  •   missymaki I have to flatten mine. Too poodle-y. #hatemycurls 1mon
  •   jennibost @missymaki of course... That's what all us straight hair girls want. ;) I've been terrible about doing my hair this pregnancy. Just pop it in a bun every day. Trying different over night techniques to figure out an easy way to deal with the mane without needing my flat iron or curling iron at 5:30 in the am. We will see! Hoping for beachy waves because this technique is really for girls with curls already- supposed to keep them from being frizzy. 1mon
  •   missymaki Mine is the worst frizzy mess. Right now I would shave my head!!! No reason to be jealous of my hot mess. Embrace the bun!!! 1mon
  •   willrunforpasta @ouidad's rake-and-shake method changed my curl life! I still don't get how it results in better curls than the usual scrunch method I grew up on, but it does. I'm always so happy when I take the time to do it!🏼 @jennibost @missymaki 1mon
  •   jennibost @willrunforpasta i lasted all night in the t-shirt. So, we will see! :) 1mon

jennibost This kiddo (and his unborn baby brother) seem to like snow cones as much as me. #ilovesummer 1mon
  •   jennibost @momentsbymacey he is a giant. You'd be so surprised about how much he talks and how funny he is! We miss you. Are you traveling this weekend? 1mon
  •   momentsbymacey I'm not! Would LOVE to see you guys! 1mon
  •   jennibost @momentsbymacey yay!! We are having dinner outdoors on Saturday night! Please join us. I'll send info and such. :) been working on the back yard and the neighbors are down to one pig so it's no longer stinky back there. Haha. 1mon
  •   jennibost @momentsbymacey if that doesn't work then we can plan on Sunday. :) 1mon
  •   momentsbymacey Dinner sounds good! Time? And what can I bring? 1mon
  •   jennibost @momentsbymacey I'll text you tomorrow. Finalizing details with the hubs and the menu. :) thinking italian alfresco sounds delish. 1mon
  •   maryboyden WHERE ARE YOU FINDING SNOW CONES IN PORTLAND?!!??!?!?!?! I must know immediately! My biggest pregnancy craving ever had gone unsatisfied for like 30 weeks now!! 1mon
  •   jennibost @maryboyden bahaha! I know, right!? I posted it on facebook lamenting that they don't have more here and got a few answers. This one was in Aloha, Oregon. There is one in the pod on SE 28 & Division, one at the Rose garden and one at a Hawaiian restaurant in Millwaukie. 1mon

jennibost Father's Day dinner was a success. Coconut rice, asparagus and teriyaki chicken with Canadian bacon and pineapple. All topped off with a pineapple juice and crushed red pepper reduction. #dinner 1mon

jennibost Between Father's Day breakfast and Father's Day dinner = home projects. Finally getting around to converting my old dining room table into an outdoor table. I always love the idea of budget decorating with paint, but I sort of hate the process. Looking forward to this sucker being complete! 1mon
