I’ve been feeling some more real (at least I’m calling them real because they feel a lot different than Braxtons and way more crampy… you’d think I’d remember how it is all supposed to feel) contractions and starting yesterday afternoon I just felt SO OFF. These ‘contractions’ aren’t very close together but sleeping isn’t happening because of them. I’m guessing the no sleep thing is happening because I was bragging on my latest baby post about how amazing I was sleeping—> I spoke too soon ha. Anyways, I’ll keep you updated today if we go in or if they just stop. PS thank you for your tips on the baby post… a bunch of the comments left me tearing up and feeling so peaceful about everything. It was therapeutic to read through them all. Thank you.
The kids were up early and ready to get moving.
I hit up the treadmill thinking it would be a normal run but at 2 miles I felt done running. So I walked for a few minutes and jumped off and got going on the rest of the day.
Very important part of my day with the kids—> going to get the salad I crave the most right now. Their lettuce to topping ratio is excellent. + their breadsticks are life. My sister used to work at this restaurant and after her shifts she would bring us back many breadsticks… these breadsticks have been a big part of my life for a while now.
We were out and about doing some errands…
Which involved picking up some donuts that hit the spot (I craved these much more when I was pregnant with Brooke but they taste really good now too).
And then the afternoon hit and I was done for the day so we just hung out at the house. Knox practiced his hide-and-seek that he told me he will be doing with the baby daily.
The kids and I finished the day with a movie. PS they keep asking me if our baby is going to show up in a suit like on Baby Boss.
Andrew got home at around 8 after a great shift! I love how much he loves doing what he does!
We will keep you updated either back here or on Instagram if anything happens this weekend:) You guys are the best!
Time for some of my Friday FAVORITES!
* These Q & A books for our kids! It is a three-year journal where you ask your kids a question each day (and then the same question again the next two years on the same day… so you can see how their answers compare/change over the years)! The questions are really fun and it starts on January first so we will be starting it soon!
*Need the best smelling Christmas candle for you or someone in your life… get this one then. It will make your house smell like heaven.
*Don’t forget about the amazing $1,000 RetailMeNot sweepstakes!! My fingers are crossed for one of you to win $1,000 to help with your holiday shopping this year. Just sign up for RetailMeNot HERE to enter the sweepstakes!! Good luck!”
*Brooke came into our room at 4 a.m. (which is NOT like her to wake up early) on Thursday morning. I was awake so I went back in her room with her and laid down for a few minutes and asked her why she got up. She told me she wanted to give Dada (what she calls Andrew) a hug before he left for the hospital because she was going to miss him so much while he went to the hospital. And then my tears started coming.
*This Coconut Water Sheet Mask from a friend. I used it the other night and it felt like heaven during and after. My face was thirsty.
*I get to work with the teenage girls in my area and they brought this over for me (yes, more tears). They spent their night making this diaper cake and bringing it over to me. It made me so happy, I don’t want to take it apart:)
*THIS SHOW. Why in the world have I waited so long to watch this? Andrew and I are hooked.
*Just take a moment to recognize the beauty in this below picture. I can’t think of a better nighttime snack.
*I saw this on Ashley’s instagram and absolutely loved it.. don’t forget this! Keep celebrating!
*I sent this to Andrew as a reminder.
*Between pregnancy cravings + having no desire to cook + I’m not super picky = I LOVE TJ’s frozen meals. Brooke and I both loved this fettuccine (it was so easy) and next time we will just add chicken and broccoli. I need to fill my freezer with these for the next few months!
*I love Stance socks (their running socks, normal socks and no-show socks… all amazing)! I was pretty excited to find this new holiday pair:)
*I’ve have loved reading about everyone’s races at CIM!!! Both Kris and Lauren qualified for the 2020 US Olympic Trials Marathon and their recaps HERE and HERE are so inspiring and detailed. Check them out if you want to be amazed!
PS there weren’t any new running accomplishments this week to share and we will start those back up again in 2018!!!
Have any Friday Favorites to share!? I would love to hear them!
What are your weekend plans?!
Anyone else love the Good Wife?!
Tell me something fun because I’m awake and reading everything;)
