Productive Schmuctive!

Yesterday was one of those days.

It started with a box of tile reminding me that I indeed cannot see in the dark and leaving me a reminder that takes up the entire back of my thigh.

At work I became grumpy. My phone kept ringing. Emails kept appearing. I couldn't keep up and all I wanted to do was crawl back under my desk.

The baby needed a milkshake and I agreed. However, it started snowing when I left the office.

But that didn't stop us! The line to get the milkshake and dumb drivers almost did. Cookies and Cream milkshakes are worth it though.

When I got back to work. My inbox was even fuller. People came to me with questions that my grumpiness thought were common sense or dumb. So I daydreamed.

Somehow my internet kept opening to different websites and this happened..... If I had no budget and am grumpy apparently this is what I would buy.

Not sleeping for lent?

It's the time of year for Lent. Many religions or denominations often recommend giving something up to remember how Jesus suffered on the cross.

Now, to be honest, I have never given anything up or even really understood much about it.

However, this year I have decided to give up sleep.

You may think I am crazy for being 8 months pregnant and wanting to give up sleep.

It's true I am crazy but I also am going to give up sleeping in. By sleeping in I mean, my husband wakes up at about 5:30am and lets the dogs out and gets in the shower. During this time I lay there or try to sleep. However, I am giving up that half hour so I can....
Have a quiet time (some people call these devotions)
Work on reading my new book (look for a post about it later this week)
Work out

Do you celebrate Lent - are you giving anything up?

Mommy Monday - My Preggo Journey

1st Trimester
I found out I was pregnant at about 5 weeks along so this journey has been going for quite some time. How did I know I was pregnant? Well this might be TMI but I am terrible at keeping track of that time of the month so that wasn't my giveaway. I figured it out because I couldn't remember anything! Also, I was having like 3 big cups of coffee each day and I still couldn't stay awake. 
I can't complain about my 1st trimester because I didn't have any morning sickness, but my husband will complain. Let's be honest, I was a raging hormonal freak of nature. I would go from sobbing to laughing within minutes. Also, I would have random hours of sobbing. Not the hard crying, but the sobbing where I couldn't breath or see. And yes, the tears were for absolutely no reason. 
Cravings - Bagels and popsicles. Lemonade. If someone talked about a specific food, I needed it. 

2nd Trimester

Yep, I thought I was HUGE in this picture.... little did I know. Anyway, I had so much energy back during this trimester. We found out baby is a..... GIRL. 
Cravings - Citrus. I think I ate at lease one grapefruit a day. 

3rd Trimester

See how huge I am today?? (This picture is at 32 weeks!)
This girl is so incredibly wiggly! She is constantly having dance parties in my belly. Oh speaking of belly, my belly button is half pushed out. Yep, the top is out the bottom is in. It's not weird looking at all (insert a lot of sarcasm). Is the nursery set up and done? Nope. But have we registered? Yep! 
Overall, I am feeling good. A little bit more tired because I either wake up to pee or because the girl is dancing at night. Also, I am getting more back aches and my belly is officially getting in the way of putting on shoes and bending over.
