Currently...+Little Friday

It's been a while since I posted a post like this so I figured what the heck - why not. PLUS it's been a long time since I updated you with what's going on in my neck of the woods...because you know, you just are just waiting on the edge of your seat right?? No?? Just me?? Awkward...

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.

So what are you up to? Anything new? Leave me a comment so we can chat! OH! And make sure you link up below!

That New Blog Smell

Oh hi there *as I rock gently back and forth on my feet wondering if you notice something is different*. Oh that?! Ha yeah, just a minor upgrade! What do you think?

What inspired me?! I LOVE that question and am happy to answer:

I am still working on the pages at the top of the blog, I plan on having those completely rolled out by the end of next week. My goal with the pages was to try to better organize all of my posts, so that way if you are looking for something in particular it's within reach and is easy to find!

Overall, I am VERY happy with my new design.  I think what I am enjoying most - or will - is the new functionality and navigation and the bright clean lines.

So what do you think? Do you like the new look?

Font Talk + Little Friday!

Wooowww two posts in one week from me! Better watch out - on a roll over here. JK but seriously. Blogging has been so hard for me lately. Between work and home life I just haven't had any time - also by the time I get home from work I am so exhausted that I pretty much crash out. That being said, I have some pretty awesome things coming this way over the next few weeks and am super excited to share them with you! All this new stuff has really made me excited about blogging again - and that my friend is a good feeling. 

Starting with this week and going forward I have a blogging schedule - new posts each Monday and Thursday. So for today and going forward you can expect the Little Friday link-up to be back each week!

Today's post is all about the fonts. If you haven't seen me blog about this before and are font obsessed or looking for some "fontspiration" go check out my prior posts here. Basically each month I round up some new awesome fonts with my friend Anne from Love the Here and Now. Sometimes they are free fonts and sometimes they aren't. This weeks font picks from me are a mixture of freebies and ones you have to pay for. The inspiration for this week was swirls and curls. Here are my picks (links at the bottom of the image):
