Drinking: a tooooonnn of water - specifically icea water. I am eating the ice out first and then drinking the water. For some strange reason ice just tastes so dang good! I am also looovin me some OJ (orange juice).
Wearing: all maternity clothes. The belly finally popped a couple of weeks ago and I am so thankful. FINALLY out of that whole "did she get fat phase" and into the "ohhh she's pregnant" phase.
Refusing: to body shame myself. I catch myself all the time going jeez my face is s puffy or what the hell my ass has spread into something ugly. When I really get going on myself I make myself STOP because the way my body is changing is a GOOD thing. I want my butt to grow and my belly to pop and my face to get puffy. I am pregnant this is part of the process! I should embrace my new body and remember that I can get myself back into shape AFTER the baby comes.
Wanting: to get my laundry room finished! Chris is taking off next week and putting up that side of the deck and adding my new laundry room. I CAN'T WAIT! Oh em gee, it will be the best thing EVER not to have to tote my laundry back and forth. Ugh. I hate it! Can't wait!
Feeling: so grateful! We made it! Grace is viable! 24 weeks is the point when doctors will actively fight to save your baby if you give birth pre-term...and we made it! It's such a relief to know that this little chick has a fighting chance. AND now that we are at 25 weeks we have moved to a 50% chance of survival and next week (i.e. Tuesday at 26 weeks) the survival rate goes up to 80%. It gives me so much peace of mind and so much joy to know that she has a chance.
Eating: way to much cereal. It's become my go-to - it's just too easy and convenient! All that is about to come a stop though. I want to eat a healthier, more rounded diet so starting Wednesday - yeah next week because I am going on a trip this week - I will be completing some heavy meal planning and prep.
Listening to: a lot of audible. Go ahead call me old, whatever I like what I like. Plus there was a free two-month subscription on Living Social - so I figured why not?! Lately I have listened to Outlander and Gone Girl, next up is Yes Please - because I am mean what kind of blogger would I be if I didn't check out that book.
Loving: my temporary front porch entrance that I DIYd all by myself! Go read how to here!
Excited: about Captain finally being able to stay out of his kennel at night! He has slept in the bed every night for almost a week with NO incident. Next test is sleeping on the floor....
going from left to right - Captain, Roxy - and in the lower bottom right corner is Leo
Wishing: ....not even sure what to put here! I am just so happy, I don't want to jinx anything! However, if I have to wish I would wish to have my deck, landscaping, and laundry room completed by June 1st.
Admiring: this weather. Oh my gosh it's been awesome! It feels like summer which means no more being cold all the time, it means maxi skirts, it means sandals. #loveit
Saying goodbye to: Tallahassee! Well not for forever - just for a few days. I am getting ready to fly into Dallas and see my family. To say I am excited about this trip would be an understatement! I haven't seen my mom, pappy, and sis in a year and I haven't seen m grams, aunts, uncle, and cousins in well over a year. We live so far apart that it's hard to get together except for once maybe twice a year - so when we do get to be together, we really savor that time.
