Thoughts For Friday + The Pick: Week 41

Friday, October 16, 2015
This week moved like lightening! Anyone else feel the same way?? Over the last several days I enjoyed time with some of my favorites, had a coffee date where I fell hard for a salted caramel mocha, and felt baby girl move constantly (ya'll she found my ribs!). I'm super excited for this weekend and all that it has in store; think baby shower and pumpkin patch! To see where my thoughts have been this week, scroll on down....



T H I N K I N G  > About my last baby shower tomorrow. I'm so looking forward to it, and I can't believe I'm already here! Ya'll I'll be 30 weeks tomorrow, say what?! Time is moving faster than I thought possible. 

P O N D E R I N G > What part of baby girl's body I feel when she pushes out against my stomach. I can't tell which way she is laying, and it sure makes me curious!

N E E D I N G > This sinus infection/cold to go the heck away! It's been holding on strong for the last couple of weeks. and it wouldn't be so horrible if I wasn't constantly sniffling, breathing wasn't difficult, and the sore throat wasn't a pop-up symptom. I've talked to several other pregnant ladies/moms and this seems to be a common experience during pregnancy for almost all of them.

L I S T E N I N G > To Christmas music....now wait just a second before you roll your eyes at me. Typically, I wait until November rolls around to play my holiday favorites, but I've needed some inspiration while making Christmas cards, and it's doing the trick! But, don't worry, I'm not listening to it on the regular, just when I'm designing cards.

D R E A M I N G > About our babymoon; it was such a fabulous, extended weekend of relaxation, and I'm craving a rewind button.

S W O O N I N G > Over the temperatures that have rolled into Virginia over the last couple of days! It's going to be a high in the fifties tomorrow!! Eek! #fallelujah


Cheers to a baby shower weekend, the pumpkin patch with my people, and a salted caramel mocha (so good, run to Starbucks to get one now!). I'll see you lovelies back here Monday! xo
