This is a little guest post series I’ll be hosting with some of my favorite bloggers while I’m adjusting to life with a newborn (again). I asked each of them to share a quick list of four items: something they bought recently (or are currently shopping for), a hobby or trend they are experimenting with, a book (or blog) they are reading, and the TV show they never miss/most recent Netflix binge. Fun right?
Today, I’m happy to introduce my sweet internet friend Callie from Through Clouded Glass.
I’ve been reading Callie’s blog for several years now, and I’ve always enjoyed her faith-based perspective on life as a working momma (she’s a part-time dental hygienist) and mom to three little ones (with another on the way). In addition to sharing her heart, her blog is full of fun recipes, book reviews, DIY projects, and her awesome sense of style. It’s an everyday read for me, for sure!
Now, on to her 4…
Buying: That would be maxi skirts. I’m pregnant with my fourth child, due in September, and summertime’s a comin’! This is my first time ever being pregnant in the summer, and I would really like to avoid buying maternity shorts since I’ll only wear them for 2-3 months of my entire life. Maxi skirts seem like a good alternative, and skirts are more airy anyway – I’ve heard horror stories about how uncomfortable it is to be pregnant in the summer. Crossing my fingers our high altitude and the skirts will make it bearable.
Trying: Meal planning! I have never meal planned before because 1) it seemed overwhelming, and 2) I hate cooking dinner and will avoid it whenever possible. But since my husband LOVES it when he has a good dinner to come home to after work, I figured a good wife would make an effort, right? Stop by my blog to follow my meal planning escapades over the next few months.
Reading: I am one of those people who always has five books going at the same time. I just never know what I’m going to be in the mood to read. So for non-fiction I’m reading:
Happiness Is A Serious Problem: A Human Nature Repair Manual by Dennis Prager (I don’t agree with some of what he says about religion, but everything else he says about happiness is so insightful and interesting).
The Glamour Of Grammar by Roy Peter Clark (which you would think would be really boring, but it’s not).
And for fiction I’m reading:
Heir To The Empire by Timothy Zahn (A Star Wars book – don’t judge! My brother got me into Star Wars fiction, and if you are at all into Star Wars and reading, you should try it).
Watching: Survivor, 19 Kids And Counting, and Once Upon A Time are some of my favorites at the moment. I also think King Of The Nerds is hilarious (there’s my nerdy side showing again), but that just ended until next season.

Meal planning is a must at my house. I bought a weekly whiteboard sticker for my fridge; it has the days of the week, and I write out our meals, including planned leftovers. First I write out activities and plan big cooking meals on nights we are home early; the others are leftovers or quick eats.
