New Year Clean Hair
Welp 2018 has come and gone. Did you get any sleep last night? I didn't get a lot... here in Lake Stevens people shoot fireworks until pretty late so even homebodies like me get to "participate" in the celebration.
I was going to write something super...
Yesterday evening, after a fun but long day at the Seahawks game, I stopped at the grocery store on the way home to grab dinner. Good grocery stores are one of my favorite choices for "quick" dinners because everyone can pick what they want and there are usually...
Yesterday I cleaned up all of the Christmas decorations. I know it is a little early...but next week will be a busy week.
It actually made me feel happy because the next time I get out our holiday decorations Josh will be home from deployment and the baby will be...
Baby Bean Adventures
Yesterday's hike was amazing. It was 3 miles round trip, of fairly flat, but snowy terrain. The midpoint of the hike is a half circle at the base of a mountain with literal ice caves. They are dangerous because ice shifts and collapses from time...
I do not mean this in a self-deprecating way... currently, I am a sausage.
Ok...want me to say it in a better way? I am currently a beautiful, sexy, strong pregnant woman who is stuffed in cold-weather compression pants and a compression turtle neck.
These pants were, by...
Today is a double day journal because I decided to be off the grid as much as possible yesterday.
We had a really nice Christmas. We did presents in the morning, relaxed most of the day and then had a steak dinner with my mom in the evening. Other than Henry...
It's Christmas Eve. I'll be honest. All week long...probably like many of you...I have been stressing about gaining weight. I have thought about it way more times than I would like to admit. Yes.. I'm know supposed to gain pregnancy weight, but I know...
Rise and Shine
Both boys are at sleepovers....and it is the Sunday before Christmas with no events. Yaaay, I can sleep in today!
But you know what time I woke up?
I wish I could explain why. My brain just didn't want to sleep.
I stayed in bed for a while, but eventually gave...
Every time I open my pantry I think I want a cookie.
I don't always get a cookie...most of the time I don't...but because they are there I think I want one.
When I open my fridge I don't think, yup I want an egg.
Funny how our brains are drawn to sugar.
I'm not in to all or...
I overslept this morning because I was having crazy dreams.
I am a side or stomach sleeper. But, I am just now at the point where sleeping on my stomach doesn't feel good.
Despite my pillow fortress, somehow I ended up on my back, which for me is a recipe for bad dreams.
Ice Chips Anyone?
Today is Logan's 10th birthday. 10 years ago, early this morning, I had Logan after 44 hours of labor.
Yup 44 hours of labor in a Naval Hospital on my back, overly medicated, with no food, only ice chips and a very stressful experience for me, Josh and my mom.
I finally have a baby bump. I woke up yesterday and it was there.
For those of you who haven't been pregnant or for my gentlemen readers, it feels kind of like having an insanely full bladder and then having it creep up your belly towards your belly button...and then beyond.
