Oh, hey February!
This month has been rough for me. I got really sick starting the last day in January and just kept getting sicker until the past day or so. I have a sinus infection and bronchitis. Coupled with being 32 weeks pregnant and having a toddler around, it hasn’t been fun! Thankfully I seem to be on the mend and can join the real world again.
I just realized I haven’t done one of these posts since last October, so let’s catch up!
Reading // So many good things!
I read Collateral by Ellen Hopkins for my book club book for this month. It was a lot different than I expected and kind of ended up being a romance book that I didn’t really dig, but it was interesting since it was written in free verse.
I’m currently reading Me Before You right now. I started a new Bible study called You are Forgiven by Love God Greatly that I got off Amazon. It’s SO good. I also just started Oh Crap! Potty Training. Exciting – lol!
Watching // The Secret Life of Pets and Finding Nemo like every day. Also lots of Daniel Tiger and Curious George. Welcome to toddler life…
Drinking // A lot seltzer and Dunkin Donuts French Vanilla coffee at home. And honey and lemon water like it’s going out of style now that I’ve been sick.
Wearing // Mostly comfy casual clothes at home, workout clothes, and all the maternity clothes. I just picked up a comfy maternity dress on clearance at Target. I might wear it three times a week 😉
Loving // My new lens and photography in general. I finally upgraded from my kit lens and got a 35mm. I am in love!
I’ve also been active in a local photography club with some really awesome and talented ladies. I recently got some maternity pictures done that I’ll have to share here soon.
Craving // My pre-pregnancy self back. It’s been a hormonal past couple of weeks and I’ve grown (literally) way more limited physically this time around sooner than I did last time. It’s humbling for sure, but at least I know this time how temporary it really is.
Bane of my Existence // Needing to organize our closets and a lot of baby stuff before she arrives. I’m not feeling particularly motivated because of what I just mentioned above. I hope the nesting bug hits me soon.
Putting Off // Finishing Claire’s baby book. I think the last time I filled anything out, she was 8 or 10 months old?! So bad! I would love to at least add some more photos before the new baby!
Praying About // Peace in the world, my anxiety, rest for our family before the baby comes
Happy About // Generally keeping our house very clean and tidy lately. Keeping our bedroom spotless just makes my soul happy.
Scared to // Let all that go when the baby arrives! I’m fully expecting the house to become a disaster and I try to remind myself of how hard a newborn will be in addition to having a toddler, but it doesn’t mean I won’t be mourning the loss.
Looking forward to // Having a 31 Gifts party on Saturday with some girlfriends. I love their stuff and am excited to get some new organizational bins before the baby arrives.
I hope you guys have a nice weekend! I hope to be “back” to the blog next week now that I’m hopefully done hacking up a lung over here 😉
