Here we are, two days away from the due date for baby number two! Please pray for me, or send good vibes my way. I didn’t get this far in my first pregnancy, so this is rather new and challenging. Fortunately, my mom has been in town since Thanksgiving, and I am so grateful. I have no idea how we would be getting by without her.
Anyway, being at this point is making me feel like I can’t quite connect with anything. It’s hard to focus on anything other than being sore and sleepy. My amazing family and friends are keeping me grounded. And I’m enjoying as much time as I can with my little guy before he becomes a big brother.
In honor of my lack of disconnect, here’s what’s going on lately.
Around the House:
We are decorating for Christmas! Such a fun, comforting tradition. Last year I bought an extra stocking holder for a possible future baby – and I’m glad I did!
My mom picked up a copy of Let’s All Be Brave by Annie F. Downs, which has been on my list, and is letting me borrow it. Of course I need a book about being brave. Don’t we all? Plus, I already love Annie’s voice and personality as I read her story. It’s like making a new friend.
I’m still getting through Parenthood, for the second time around, and loving all the characters just as much this time as the last. I’m gearing up to share a post of my favorite episodes with you guys. Also, what would we all do without Netflix? Just wondering.
Speaking of Netflix, who made it through Gilmore Girls??
There are a couple things I am just loving at this moment. (Although I’ll spare you the whole list of foods that are making me particularly happy right now.) One is my LuLaRoe Sarah cardigan (c/o the amazing Ashley Womack), which I’m getting so many compliments on. It’s a fun color, and super cozy, plus has this swingy, elegant feel to it.
Also, the Makeup Eraser that was in last month’s PopSugar Must Have Box (which I received for review). It’s something I never would have bought for myself, but let me tell you, this thing really works! It is a washcloth that removes even the heaviest eye makeup with just water, no soap. No sponsorship for this post, no affiliate links, I just love it.
A baby name. No, we still don’t have a name for him. Maybe that’s what he is waiting for!
I am eating a lot of red meat lately, which is not new for this pregnancy! Marshmallows, too, for some reason. And does a good night’s sleep count? Because I would love one.
Well, you know.
What are you up to lately? Also, any good recommendations to share?
