Do you ever have those moments when your brain moves faster than your body? That’s currently where I am in regards to my life and this blog. I have so many ideas and projects running around in my head, but my life is moving at a much slower pace, and I’m learning to honor that; because try as I might, I cannot type a blog post while holding an infant.
I guess I could put him in his swing for an hour, but I know these still moments of baby snuggles will be gone before I know it, so I’m really trying to soak up every single minute. (Lucky for me, I have a little baby who throughly enjoy napping on his mommy!) But here I am on Monday night and Cory is holding Jack, so I’m pulling out this throwback survey. I think my answers may have changed a bit since I first posted this survey back in 2013 😉
Current Book(s): The most current book I’ve read is Happiest Baby on the Block. Holy cow, if you have a new baby or are expecting, READ THIS BOOK. Or, simply watch the DVD. I did both. I swear to you, it’s like baby magic.
Current Music: On my morning walks with Jack, I’ve been listening to this ‘Pop Punk Powerhouse’ play list on Spotify. It’s like my high school and early college years put to music, with a few newbies thrown in there.
Current Guilty Pleasure: This one has me stumped. Maybe it’s that Cory gets up in the middle of the night to change Jack’s diapers and swaddle him back to sleep. Cory is a swaddle master.
Current Nail Color: Ha, that’s funny.
Current Drink: Water, water, water during the day, wine at night. I craved red wine throughout my pregnancy, and caught a little flack when I post this picture on Instagram my first night home from the hospital. To those people, I say, you’ve never been pregnant, have you?
Current Food: Sushi. I would eat spicy tuna rolls every day if it wouldn’t put me in the poor house.
Current Favorite Show: It’s a tie between Revenge and Bloodline. If you have Netflix and haven’t watched Bloodline, YOU ARE MISSING OUT. For those of you who have, isn’t Danny one scary motherfucker?
Current Wish List: Sleep, my old boobs, and more sleep.
Current Needs: Sleep and a cleaning lady. Seriously, I need a cleaning lady. If you’re not blood or a close friend, you can’t come to my house at the moment because anyone else would judge how dirty my floors are at the moment.
Current Bane of My Existence: Strangers out in public who offer unsolicited parenting advice.
Current Celebrity Crush: Kyle Chandler, you are one smokin’ older gentleman (and the best looking part of Bloodline.)
Current Indulgence: Cory’s birthday cake. He turned the big 2-9 this past Saturday.
Current Blessing: Oh my gosh, my perfect little family. I wish internet creeps and internet trolls didn’t exist, because it’s so difficult to not share Jack’s fat, precious face with you! I know I’m biased, but he’s so stinkin’ cute, I can’t even handle it.
Current Slang: I’m still not a slang person. Still a heavy user of the four letter words. though.
Current Outfit: Work out clothes, or anything with an elastic waistband. My question: why aren’t all pants and shorts maternity pants and shorts?
Current Excitement: I have two articles scheduled to be published on Scary Mommy, my favorite website ever. I’ve been a Scary Mommy fan since I found out I was pregnant, and I’m so excited that my work will be on the site at the end of this month, and in mid-June!
Current Mood: Thankful, happy, overwhelmed. Oh yeah, and tired.
Current Link: My Advocare affiliate link. Cory is currently doing a 24 Day Challenge and I’m playing along for the most part, but not really, as I’m breastfeeding and as a result, am a RAVENOUS BEAST. Did you know that you’re actually supposed to eat more when you’re breastfeeding vs. when you’re pregnant (500 extra calories vs. 300 extra calories per day.) I thought that was interesting.
