Weekend Update

Monday, September 8, 2014

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! It was such a great weekend to be lazy and watch football, so that is exactly what my husband and I did. Very happy with our Gator and Steelers wins, plus my fantasy team is killing it!

I've had some sinus issues the past 4 or 5 days, hence my absence from the ole blog on Friday. I'm hoping its on its way out of my system so I can get my energy back, but let me say it sucks not being able to take any meds! I've been walking around with breathe right strips on my nose all weekend, so glamorous.

Since I've been trying to take it easy, there isn't much to report but here are some recent happenings:

- Mama got a new ride!


We are the proud new owners of a 2015 Ford Explorer! We went to the dealership Thursday intending just to look and ended up coming home with the biggest vehicle I've ever driven. ha! We knew we wanted something with a lot of space now that the baby is on the way and we'll presumably have to pack a lot more junk when we travel to see our family. It's definitely an adjustment learning how to drive something so big, but I'm absolutely loving it!

Also I'd like to credit myself for my stellar negotiation skills. Which actually translate as: I was starving and just wanted to get a good price so we could go home and eat dinner before 10 PM. 

- Trips to Target have changed


So this is what you come home with when you're pregnant in Target. As if I didn't enjoy shopping there enough before the babe!

- Maternity pants = love

I tried on some maternity jeans this weekend and they are so comfortable! I'm waiting to cash in on some Gap cash to purchase any but I'm glad I don't have to wait much longer, they need to get in my closet immediately. Someone please tell me its acceptable to wear them after baby?! No?! Damn.

That's it. I told you it wasn't very exciting so if you stuck around this long, you're great. Here's to hoping Rowan and I have a good checkup this week, kicking this nasty cold, finally working on some Fall DIYs, and catching up on emails for once in the past 2 weeks!

  8. I was telling Theo last night I can't believe y'all stayed at the dealership so late to get the car when you weren't even going to buy it to begin with! I would have been the same way, when I want something I want it now!

  12. Congrats on the new car! I am hoping to get a new car at the end of the year, something bigger than my current college car, but not soo big. Guess we shall see. My sister just had a baby (today actually, yay!) and I found myself finding new clothes for baby all the time, and I am just the aunt, so I can only imagine how you feel :)

  21. Loooove your new car! We bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee after Mia was born because trying to fit a car seat, stroller and all the other crap that comes along with a baby into a car was a tight fit!
    I have lost all interest in any type of shopping except for baby stuff! It's so fun to shop for our littles ;)
