Eating...Less and less.  My appetite is officially over it thanks to this big baby boy pressing on my internal organs.  Heartburn has rid me of my cravings and I just don't feel as enthusiastic about food as I normally would.  I've been eating a lot of fruit, cereal, and smoothies.  And, let's be honest, ice cream.  One can never have enough chocolate ice cream.
Watching...Shawn and I decided to get into a new show over the summer since most of our favorites are on hiatus until the fall.  We started watching "Sons of Anarchy" on Netflix and seriously zoomed through the first 5 seasons in about 3 weeks.  SO GOOD!!  Why have we never gotten into this before?  We are officially addicted and can not wait until season 6 starts next month.  Also, this trailer of "The Walking Dead" season 4 has me on the edge of my seat!  Hurry up, October!
Excited for...the baby, football season, the end of 100 degree temperatures and the start of fall, Isabelle's first day of school next week: the obvious.
Linking...Celebrities read mean tweets: hilarious.  I am not on Twitter and have no desire to be.  It seems like a really nasty and negative place.  But I love seeing these famous people make light of the ignorance (Kid Rock's is classic).
The CTFD method, my personal fav.
An ode to my favorite city: any New Orleans resident can attest to this.
LOVE this article on toddlers.  They are little dictators by nature but it's our job as parents to keep them in line.
How many of these did you sport?  I was a HUGE fan of the mini buns.
I love this blog, this family, this life.  Shawn and I often talk about doing this: selling everything and just taking off.  These people actually had the balls to do it.  SO inspiring.
This is actually a typical conversation that goes on in her house anytime Shawn walks in on me watching The Real Housewives.
Russell Brand makes these "journalists" look like the complete morons they totally are.  Why do these people have jobs?!!  Jobs delivering news stories?  I love you, Russell. right at this moment.  This is a time of transition for our family and the wave of change flowing through our lives is palpable.  We are taking our time these days, enjoying each other, soaking it all in.  We hug a little bit longer, listen more intently, and stick together as much as possible.  It's our last few weeks as a family of 4 and we are making every single day count.

And what post is complete without a photo?  Here's a good one: my giant belly in all its glory.  Taking bets on baby's birth weight now aaaand go!!!

I'm more and more of a fan of the CTFD method every day :)

You look FANTASTIC. So good that you deserve at least 23 more chocolate ice cream cones! I can't wait for this little man's arrival. I'm betting 9lb 5 oz.

Thank you! And I agree about the ice cream, why not right?

Olivia said...

Belle was 9 lbs, Bress was 9 lbs 11 oz. Maybe he'll be early and you will win!

Olivia said...
