Friday morning my parents dropped off these cuties with us! Left to right: Lil Lou –> Fletcher. We get them for most of this week too. I love having a house filled with dogs. In the future, if / when we get a bigger house, we will definitely be getting Maggie a puppy brother. I follow @Carolynj on IG and she recently got an English Bulldog and named him Egg Roll. I can not even. I want him so bad.
Saturday morning I woke up at 2am and didn’t fall back asleep. I finished writing some thank you notes and then ended up on pinterest for hours looking up things like how to decorate your house for autumn.
I decided I needed a bale of hay to put by our front door. So come sunrise I went and found a plant store that would sell me hay (to my country friends, I will not tell you how much I paid for said decorative hay. It was ridiculous.) BUT I love having it sitting by our front door. Totally worth it.
Then I felt like playing around with sidewalk chalk, so I made a chalk doormat of sorts. I LOVE how it came out.
I marked off the rectangles with painters tape and then just colored them in.
And then voila!
Saturday for lunch we had an event with a brand, which I’ll be sharing later. Later that afternoon Andrew and I went out for a pre-dinner ice cream from Cloud 10. I went with one scoop nutella & marshmallow + one scoop good ol’ vanilla.
Yesterday Morgan and I were walking around Target and I saw Vanilla Chex. And was like, “that would make really good puppy chow.” I eyeball the recipe, but this is pretty much how I make it. I had a nausea-filled weekend and anytime any food sounds appetizing I get pumped! I made a batch to munch on throughout the week.
Other random weekend realizations included:
Weekend realization #1: After spending years trying a new face wash every 3 months, my big sister recommended Cetaphil and I’ve been using it for a year now. It’s super gentle and this is the best my skin has ever been. I still get pimples from time to time because I’m human, but I’m eliminating dairy to fix that. GOTCHA! Totally kidding. My acne doesn’t come from eating dairy. It comes from stress / lack of sleep / pregnancy hormones / trying new make-up / not showering quickly enough after I sweat / me messing with pimple, which makes them look worse than they are.
This cleanser + taking a make-up free day when I feel like my skin needs it works for me. Sunday ended up being a make-up free day because I was getting some pimples around my mouth and felt like I needed a make-up break. I’ve always had super rosy cheeks (which makes my rheumatologist nervous every time I go in lol…since that can be a sign of lupus). I’ve never owned blush in my life.
Weekend realization #2: I’m currently on an iced chai tea latte kick!
Weekend realization #3: I found this fun soda at the grocery store and it tastes like the best cream soda of my life.
I have an OB appointment this afternoon with an ultrasound that I am really looking forward to. I believe the new sensations I’m feeling lately – “zings”/ “lightening bolts” in my pelvic area and A LOT more pressure on my pelvic bones – are signs that baby girl is dropping.
