Baby Boy has inherited his papa’s sweet tooth. For the past few days, all food has been dull and boring to me, except for M&M cookies. I’ve been craving them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Today I decided to try to do something about it. And since I can’t bake, I went to Trader Joe’s on my lunch break. I couldn’t find any M&M cookies, but Trader Joe’s delivered on 3 other kinds of cookies (peppermint oreos, gingerbread men with frosting, and shortbread with dark chocolate) and some chocolate drizzled kettle corn. I promise I have no intention of eating all of this at once.

Interesting side note: I asked on Facebook this morning whether M&M cookies were an acceptable breakfast food, and received a surprising amount of support. I either have very good friends, or very bad friends. I’m not sure which.

Where are you, Sleep?

The past couple days have been tough for me. I have hardly been sleeping! As a lady who almost never has trouble sleeping, this has been quite disturbing to me.

And I can’t figure out why it is happening. My heart has just been beating… extra loud?

I wish I could blame it on baby kicks, or being uncomfortable, or worrying, or something else that makes sense. But just feeling like your heart is beating loudly feels like a really lame, unsolvable problem.

All my other lame, unsolvable problems are pregnancy related. So I will assume that is the case now, too. Just for fun.

In other news… I could really go for some M&M cookies.

Bathroom light fixture?

Although putting the finishing touches on the bathroom isn’t on the weekend to-do list for a few months, I ordered a light fixture today!

It was cyber Monday, and my favorite affordable lighting store had a super deal on just the right thing. And given our history with bathroom light fixtures, I figured it was a good idea to order now… just in case.

The website claimed it was in the warehouse and ready to ship. But I am skeptical. Light fixtures are not my friend. So we’ll see.

Pretty excited! I love having plans. And executing them. Operation: Bathroom Lighting is back on track. And ahead of its new schedule (for now…). That makes me happy.


Oops. I did it again.

I planned stuff.

This time it was a timeline for getting stuff done before my due date. Kyle and I will now each have a to-do list for each weekend between now and Baby Boy’s arrival.

I know, I know… I’m crazy.

BUT! It turns out that we have plenty of time to do it all, which I know now that I mapped it all out.

So… Time we have. Money is still questionable. But where there is a will, there is a way. So I’m going to keep trying to figure out a way to do it all so we’re where we want to be when we bring home our little nugget.

Maybe it is all the Hallmark movies making me feel optimistic, but I just feel like we should be able to make everything happen. I mean… why not? Why can’t things work out? Right?! 🙂
