Still pregnant. The good news though is that I’m tying up lots of loose ends in hopes of making labor/delivery, maternity leave, and adjusting to life with a newborn again as easy as possible (ha) whenever our girl does decide to make her appearance…
Speaking of which, I’ve been working on a fun little guest post series on the blog for Thursdays over the next few months where I’ve invited some of my very favorite bloggers and BBFs (best blog friends) 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 don’t miss an episode of/ most recent Netflix binge. Fun, right?
I’m excited to kick off with one of my biggest blogging idols (bet you can’t guess who it is) next week; but, for now, I thought I’d share my own list. Enjoy!
Buying – Last minute baby stuff (like this and these) and clothes that I think will fit me / be comfortable postpartum. I’m probably most excited about this shirt that was delivered a couple weeks ago and is already in my hospital bag.
Trying – The ombre lob. (Does that count?) I had my hairdresser cover some grays at my roots last week and decided to go a little wild. She also lightened my ends and took a few inches off, so it lays just right around my shoulders now. It’s a little out of my comfort zone and taking some getting used to, but I think I’m going to like it. Now, to find the perfect curling wand and master those “beach waves” that are all the rave. #coolmom
Reading – The Fringe Hours by Jessica Turner. I loved listening to Jessica on the podcast circuit a few weeks ago, and I’m enjoying the book a lot! She has a really important message for women about the value in taking time for yourself… The Good Girl is next in the queue. I’ve heard it compared to Gone Girl (one of my very favorites in recent years), so I’m excited. P.S. Have you noticed how many popular books have the word “girl” in their titles these days?!? (This one is on my list too.)
Watching – I just got caught up on Scandal and, I have to admit, I’m not as into this season as ones before it. I’ve been saving Gilmore Girls, Friday Night Lights, and The Good Wife for maternity leave (too ambitious?), so I’m excited to start those soon!! (Also, for the record, I have zero interest in House of Cards. Anyone else?)
Ok. There you have it! What about you? What are you buying / trying / reading/ and watching these days?!?
Stay tuned on Thursdays for lists from people much more interesting than me!
