I’ve hit my due date! Which they tell me is an arbitrary number and guesstimate but also that if I don’t deliver as we get into week 41, we’ll need to talk induction. I feel a sense of accomplishment for making it full term and I’ve been patient but now I feel as though I’m on a timeline that isn’t my baby’s or my own.
We’ve been busy with holidays, birthdays, activities, me finishing up writing my book (available early May!), and just life! But we are chugging along well and enjoying our family time.
Can you believe it’s the end of March already? I can’t! Here are my lasts…
We’ve been pondering the idea of a play set for awhile now and after some research and lots of searching, we took the plunge! Our neighborhood has a great playground but it stays pretty crowded and with having a little one on the way and expecting to continue to spending plenty of time at home, we decided we wanted to get our own thing. Plus, Pfeiffer loved the idea of having her very own swing.
Finishing up my second trimester and happy to almost be close to a home stretch (okay, I know I still have a ways to go but just saying third trimester sounds like a win). Baby is the size of a water bottle or a large bottle of Sriracha sauce.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope you take the day to love on yourself and those closest to you. Instead of doing a traditional post of date ideas or self-care tips or gift ideas, I thought I’d share my love jams playlist with you.
Happy weekend! Hope you are enjoying it thus far. Here’s a little behind the scenes/day in the life post. Usually on Saturdays Pfeiffer has Spanish lessons at a local park and Jeff golfs but today we were expecting rain so we called the lessons off. Not surprising for my family, they chanced the weather and hoped it wouldn’t pour on them and headed for the golf course. My dad and his wife are in town and my husband and brother love golfing so I’m sure they’ll enjoy their time together. Pfeiffer and I are holding down the fort.
First trimester + second trimester (through week 22) happenings: I briefly touched on my first trimester in my year-end recap post here but I’ll sum it up for you here as well in word word: rough.
2020, it’s been a strange year. Ups and downs. Toilet paper and meat shortages (which, PSA, you can survive off zero meat, folks, but zero TP, I don’t want to try). We’ve evaluated our lives and then reevaluated them. Tried to figure out what the eff is happening. Who we are and what was going on. It truly was a year unlike any other I’ve seen (and hopefully ever see again).
Listen, I know some of y’all haven’t finished your Christmas shopping. Ron (that’s my brother), I’m talking to you. But, that’s okay, your secrets are safe with me. Here are some super last-minute Christmas gift ideas you can peruse and purchase immediately without having to leave your home. Best part is that there’s something for every price point. Most of them can be tailored to what you specifically want to spend. Here goes!
