Ahh, another awesome but way-too-short summer weekend.
Mase got loads of QT with his grandparents…
Plus some good old wet-and-dirty outside time.
Meanwhile, Mom and Dad got to get fancy for a wedding.
Well…that was the best I could do for “fancy.”
I didn’t end up staying for the whole reception, since, let’s be honest, wedding’s aren’t quite the same when you’re pregnant and sober. But it was still fun to see the ceremony and hang out for a bit afterwards.
So now we’re back to the grind…luckily it’s only a 4-day week!
Here are a few random things on my mind this week…
–I’m working on booking a photographer for a newborn shoot. Gosh, this stuff is expensive. (But worth it, right??) This time, we’re thinking about going with someone who will come to our house, vs. us going to a studio. (That was hard enough last time with a newborn, but a newborn + toddler??)
–We just booked a sort of last-minute family trip to a waterpark this weekend for the 4th. I’m stoked! I originally wanted to camp–or at least rent a rustic cabin–but everything was booked by the time we were ready to pull the trigger, so we’ll be in a hotel. Brent is secretly thrilled about this (and I have to admit, it’ll be so much easier in a lot of ways).
In related news, I had to buy a maternity swimsuit…boy, was that fun! I went with a black tankini with a little skirt for max coverage (haha), but it’s still not the prettiest sight ever. Luckily, I’m entering the “who cares” stage of pregnancy.
–I’m thinking about joining my friend Giselle’s 3-week Paleo Challenge (you should too!). I might not start until next week, since I didn’t have time to properly prepare for this week, and this is something I’d definitely want to go into feeling “ready.” But this happens to be something I’ve been wanting to try for awhile, so the timing couldn’t be much better! Thanks Giselle!!
–I NEED to buy a crib. Like NEEEED to. This week??
–I wasn’t sure how this summer + pregnancy thing was going to go, but there is one giant perk to it: fresh summer fruit. Lots of preggos go bonkers over fruit, and I’m one of them. You should have seen me putting away giant bowls of watermelon, strawberries, melon, and pineapple at the in-laws’ over the weekend…
–We’re trying to decide if we should take Mason to the fireworks Thursday night. This would mean staying up super late (like 11 PM)–is 2 old enough for that?? The other question is: will he be terrified??
–I have a big-ish announcement to make. I was going to make it today, but I think it deserves its own post. So come back tomorrow to find out how my life will be changing (besides, like, from having another baby and stuff) and what it means for this blog!
Hope you had a lovely weekend!
