This February feels like it just won’t quit. We haven’t had much of the surprisingly nice periods of sunshine and warm weather that usually drop by for a day or two in February. I’m DONE with winter, and thankful for my little belly insulator that keeps me warmer than usual. But come on, Spring. You can do this.
I am very into nesting. I wrote a whole post about it, in fact. These past few weeks have seen even more closets, cupboards and secret nooks & crannies be conquered by the nesting bug. I have quite a load to go to Goodwill, and I am TOTALLY into seeing all that stuff leave my house.
And, I am totally into Amazon Prime bringing me packages. Gifts from loved ones, sure, but also all the things I have ordered and returned and ordered and returned and ordered. I’ve had no less than 13 diaper bags at home to try out, and let’s not even talk about the adventure of finding just the right nursing bra. Thank you, Amazon Prime, for free shipping. Amen.
We scored some free tickets to a Creighton game, and while the Jays lost, I’m totally into that guy, and it was so fun to spend a night out with him and some of our friends. He’s just the cutest.
Above: 34 weeks and 37 weeks and the belly that just won’t quit and hello, sleepless nights. Ugh. That was a rude surprise around 35 weeks. But overall, pregnancy things are going well. The baby looks great, I’m hanging in there, and in March, I’ll be all into our newborn. L1 will be on the outside, y’all. Yikes!
What I’m reading & What I’m watching
I have been getting a little reading done – see what I read this past month here. I’ve been watching Drop Dead Diva while I clean out closets, and keeping up with Grey’s and Nashville as per usual. I’m glad my shows are back. And Scandal! We’re still loving Liv and the Gladiators. I followed all the awards shows on Twitter and catching up on clips later, which is much more preferred to actually watching live, I’ve found.
Adventures in Piggery
I braved the smell and went into one last nursery barn at the beginning of the month. Let’s not even talk about the size of coveralls I had to wear to accommodate the bump. Hilarity ensued.
The little pigs were not particularly cooperative in having their pictures taken; in fact, I’m pretty sure I caught that guy in the middle mid-sneeze. Bless you, little fella.
We also took one last 1,600+ mile mega road trip down to Southern Kansas and then into Texas. Our last trip as a 2-family of road warriors. Chad and I have driven a lot of miles together, and seen a lot of the country (and a lot of pigs). It’s been a great season of our lives, and I’m so thankful for the time we’ve had together. I’m grateful for the wide open skies, the bit of color we saw in southern Kansas before the snow blew again, and the man who rides (drives) beside me.
