First, thank you so much for all of your well wishes for Baby Girl! We’re so excited and nervous! It’s hard to believe I’m already in the third trimester.
Eating: Chocolate s
Drinking: Lots of water + tea. When we decided to try for a baby, I slowly cut back on my coffee intake to 1 cup per day. When I got pregnant I stopped that one cup cold turkey. Now coffee doesn’t usually appea to me although I will have a decaf every now and then. I am anticipating needing/wanting lots of coffee come July. But for
Reading: The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan. One of my new friends here in DC invited me to her friends’ book swap, and I got this book there. They do it twice a year. Everyone brings some books they want to pass along and then we go around taking turns picking books. I got like 10 new books from the swap and I am looking forward to the next one. I think it’s such a great idea!
Turning: 32! Today is my birthday!
Organizing: Our apartment. Still. When we moved to Hawaii we put a bunch of stuff in storage. We just got that shipment back and have been going through and getting rid of a lot of stuff. I’m also trying to organize the things we have bought for Baby Girl so that I can see what else we need.
Crafting: I am really hoping to get caught up on my scrapbook before Baby Girl gets here. I just got a bunch of pictures printed so I’m hoping to get that done this month.
Watching: Game of Thrones! OMG! Also, I’m looking for a light show I can watch while I crochet!
Crocheting: A blanket for Baby Girl. I am sure I will crochet her many blankets over the years but it took me a long time to decide what pattern and colors to use for her first. I’ll share it when I am done!
Cooking: Right now I am on the hunt for freezer meals. We bought a deep freezer and plan to fill it up with freezer meals that we can eat when Baby Girl gets here. I’m pretty new to freezer meals though so I would love any recipes/advice for freezing.
Dreaming: about the beach. I miss the beach so much. DC really isn’t too far from a few beaches, but I haven’t been able to check them out because we don’t have a car. Although we have been managing just fine without a car (and life is much easier car-free if you ask me), we decided we need to get one for Baby Girl. As soon as we get a car, the first place I’m going is the beach. I’d love to have a beach day or two before she gets here.
