I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect crystal in a bullet casing for a while. I’m so indecisive.
Craving of the day: Teriyaki stir fried vegetables & jasmine rice. Mmmmmm. I even made my own sauce (kinda)! I could seriously eat an entire bag of snow peas right now.
How amazing is this frame I found?! In love.
Edit: the print is from Etsy! Search antique dictionary art and lots of neat ones come up. I’m looking in to buying a few more soon! :)
Spending my morning writing out thank you cards to those who attended my baby shower and have kindly provided us with gifts for our son! Words can not describe how special these people and their generosity are to me.
The envelopes on the left are only the ones I’m mailing out (15 or 16), and I have at least another 12 to write out that I will deliver in person. This is hard work! I am so blessed and my son is so lucky to be coming in to a life filled with such pure love and joy. I hope that my words in these cards convey how grateful I am for the love everyone has shown us. 💞 🙏 💕
What I would like to do:
- drive my honey to work (can’t avoid that one most days…it’s bloody cold out!)
- eat something small (smoothie, strawberries or toast with pb)
- dry brush
- lather up with coconut oil
- write about what I’m thankful in my gratitude journal
- drink a mug of hot water with lemon
- stretch/prenatal yoga/whatever I’m physically capable of at that moment
- do what has to be done that day
- rest periodically to stretch and put the heating pad on my low back
- drink 80-100oz of water
What has been happening this week:
- drive my honey to work
- wolf down something convenient and quick because I’m ravenously hungry when I wake up
- brain goes haywire with what I “absolutely must do” that day
- watch some tv
- keep busy all day
- eat poorly
- crash in the afternoon and finally relax in the evening
- drink 60-70oz of water
I’m giving myself a free pass on these past few days because it’s my first week off work and I’m really unsure what to do with myself. I feel guilty relaxing too much. Logically I realize that’s not right, because that’s exactly why I took some extra time off before the babe is due….but my brain is tricking me in to thinking that I need to stay busy.
Today is my day to fully rest. Finally. My body is sore from my massage yesterday, and I have to get started on my thank you cards from my baby shower, so it’s time to take it easy. I may do a few things here and there but otherwise it’s going to be a relaxing day without any real goals that require me to get up.
A lot of people don’t realize that Louis CK is not only hilarious, but he shares some serious wisdom sometimes.
I barely slept last night (shocking!), so I am definitely going to take it easy today.
I say that now.
I have so many ideas for decorating our new house (“nesting”) that I may venture out to Michael’s for supplies (see: gold & silver spray paint) and to Winner’s for inspiration and possible deals on decor.
I am on the hunt for picture frames, a large canvas and an antique bassinet. I have a fun idea to create a fun piece for little guy’s room using “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” by Dr. Suess. Very excited to see how it turns out.
He’s having way too much fun with our new baby monitor. The 2-way sound is SURE to creep the hell out of our little guy because it sounds like the great and powerful Oz haha
I promised Chris that I would relax for a few days. He said one full week of no work but I don’t think I can fight off my need to “nest” for that long. How does one relax and do nothing? I feel so lost already. I think I need to get some crafting ideas to keep me busy.
I spent my morning filling out the paperwork for maternity leave, and ended up organizing all of our important documents. Even a necessary task turns in to another task for me. I can’t just do one thing! I’m going to TRY to stay in my pjs all day and relax but honestly…..vacuuming is calling my name.
When did I become my mother?
