Thoughts from a Thursday

Pregnancy Ramblings
  • A couple of women at school have exclaimed “THE BABY HAS DROPPED” when I walked into the workroom.  I guess so? I’m not sure!
  • I finally bit the bullet and bought a pair of Tom’s flats I’ve been eyeing for fall (Taupe Suede). Pregnancy has def kept me from spending money on clothes, but I miss shopping, especially this time of year.
  • Is it realistic to think I’ll read some novels this fall?  I created a reading list on Amazon and I’m excited to order a few new books.
  • I’ve never been so ready for summer to end and pumpkin beer to arrive in my life. I’m the only one sweating when all of the other female teachers are wearing sweaters.
  • Matt and I enjoyed dinner at St. Martin’s Wine Bistro for yet another restaurant week menu.  It was very old-world and quite romantic.  It’s crazy that we might only have a few date nights left!!

    Eat out as often as you possibly can. Also go to the movies. As many as you can fit in from now until then.

      My eating out habits might be why the baby is now measuring on the large side!

    1. With your mama. Legit go on as many dates as you can. Try every restaurant you feel like. You will not regret it for a minute. I look at the end-of-third-tri-dates as some of the sweetest we had because we knew it was the end of us being the two of us, and we still had the time/energy to do those things!

    2. I read a book a week during maternity leave. You are wiped out but you’re also alone. A lot. At all hours of the day. It fills the time. It fills your mind with things that aren’t mommy group discussion topics. Highly recommend getting the kindle app for your iPhone if you don’t have it already. You can scroll through books just as easy as you can read news articles!

    You can definitely still read! I have a 10 month old and have been averaging a book every 1-2 weeks since she was born.
