One of my major blog crushes is Gracie of Girl Meets Life. She’s just too stinkin’ cute. I saw this survey on her blog last week and thought it was fun, so I’m bringing it over here! I’m sure everyone who’s reading this knows who Gracie is, but if you don’t – go check her out!
Lately I’ve been…
Making: a baby.
Cooking: LOLOL – no, siree. I’m not cooking at all. I pack Cory’s lunches – does that count?
Drinking: Water upon water upon water. Before I was pregnant, I’d go through the day and drink maybe 16oz of water. MAYBE. I know that’s terrible, but it’s the truth. Now, I can’t even keep track of all the water I’m drinking. I’m always thirsty!
Reading: I recently read Six Years by Harlan Coben and it was fantastic! I literally read it in one sitting.
Wanting: clothes that fit. I’m still in that kind of awkward phase of my normal clothes being way too small, but not quite fitting into maternity clothes. I’m currently on the lookout for a killer pair of maternity jeans. No one tell me “Target!” or “Old Navy!” because I’ve only found Mom Jeans at either of those stores and it’s so depressing.
Looking: Forward to the holiday season! The food and the parties and the family time are all so wonderful. I love this time of year.
Playing: The “should” game with working out. I miss going to the gym, but I’m not one of those fit moms who Crossfits her way through pregnancy. It’s been a weird transition, but slowing things down is what I feel is right for my body.
Wasting: Food. Because I’ve been so iffy on what does and doesn’t sound good, we’ve let a good deal of food go to waste. And I hate wasting food. I’m proud to report that in the last two weeks we’ve drastically improved our food waste.
Sewing: I don’t sew (and this seems like a weird question.) My mom is an amazing seamstress and I constantly kick myself for not letting her teach me how to sew when I was younger.
Wishing: That baby registries made themselves. I am beyond overwhelmed by the amount of stuff you need for a kid.
Enjoying: My time with Cory. For 8 years it’s been just us, and in a few short months, everything is going to change! While we’re so excited, I’m mindful of savoring our childless time together.
Waiting: For my ultrasound appointment in a week!
Liking: The change in weather. Here in Virginia it feels like we’ve made the quick transition from fall to winter, but it’s making me very excited for the holiday season!
Wondering: The gender of the baby. We’re not going to find out, but that doesn’t mean I don’t wonder!
Loving: Life. This might sound weird, but the Brittany Maynard story has deeply touched and inspired me, and her story has me looking at things from a new perspective. I could go on and on, but her story has really made me pause to look around and notice the awesomeness of life.
Hoping: This sound trite considering the above, but I’m really hoping my morning sickness doesn’t last for another 20 weeks.
Marveling: I know how this will sound, especially to my friends who have yet to experience pregnancy, but I’m constantly marveling at the fact that I’m growing a human. What?! That’s just insane.
Needing: Nothing, really.
Wearing: Yoga pants and my favorite Longwood hoodie. My winter weather uniform has officially made it’s return. Cory is so lucky.
Following: I follow way too many celebrities on Instagram. It’s weird, but I won’t stop.
Noticing: That french fries are never a bad idea.
Knowing: That it’s exciting when old friends become new friends again.
Thinking: Oh my gosh, so many things. I can’t even begin to tell you!
Feeling: Excited about being published in a real magazine! Check out my story in MDA’s Quest magazine (pg. 52 – 53)
Bookmarking: Baby List. I’m in no way affiliated with them, but I love them! They’re great because you can make your baby registry from all different places, not just one store.
Giggling: Thanks to my friend, Kaylee, I watch this short video every time I need/want to giggle. Works every time.
