We've got so much to celebrate! "Jersey Shore" meatball Nicole Polizzi gave birth on Sunday, which means she can now return to...eating eggs. Hip-hip, hooray! We can't even imagine surviving nine months without an omelette or any of the fun activities pregnancy puts the kibosh on, but the guidette has finally reached full mothering status, and it's time to get back into life's little pleasures. Here's a list of everyday luxuries she can partake in again, aside from the obvious champagne toast to new parenthood.
Tanning: Tanning!!! A terrible idea when you've got a new friend growing in your belly, but now? A free-for-all! Baby Enzo's coming out was at the end of August, meaning the start of some cold, sunless months are almost upon us. Prime time for imitation UV rays!
Sushi: When you've got a bun in the oven, there are tons of yummy foods that are a big ol' no-no. Luckily for Snooks, even with her rediscovered love for all things yolky, she can go back to those dee-licious raw-fish-for-breakfast ways. Slices of tuna over rice are a weird morning pick-me-up, sure, but considering she's gonna be up all hours with her precious meatball, dinner any time of day sounds like a great way to complement diaper-changing.
Extravagant Levels of Caffeine: It's been a while since Snooki shared her love for Starbucks as a pre-GTL pump-up, but now that Enzo's wiggling around in the world, Nicole can sip RedBull or iced mochas as freely as can be. And, even better? Those gifts that she and JWOWW brought to New Jersey's most tolerant neighbors can now be enjoyed over a steaming hot cappuccino, latte or simple XXL-sized coffee.
Shark: Because your body stores mercury from fish for up to four years--and we thought pregnancy took forever!--fish with high levels of the stuff aren't good to chow on with a tot in the tummy, meaning that in addition to sushi, Snooki also had to cut out swordfish, tilefish and...shark! Judging by her confusion over organic vs. kosher food, Nicole likely won't be gobbling down bits of "Jaws" anytime soon, but knowing the option is there must be comforting.
Saunas and hot tubs: Well, it looks like Nicole will have to think of a new reason to avoid the murky waters of that Seaside Heights hot tub. Granted, with the amount of time the boys spend in there with, ahem, party guests, Snooks probably won't want to kick back in the house's smush boat anytime soon, but at least she's finally able to hop back into the H20 again. We highly recommend a day spa over the Shore's most notorious jacuzzi.
