things I'm....

LOVING: my new Nike Free's. Eric researched until he found the perfect pair of shoes for me to wear throughout this pregnancy. They are so comfy, great support, and light as air. And he picked some fun colors :)
I'm also loving the conversation we had about my shoes.
me: Babe, I'm always getting compliments on my new "kicks" (ha ha) I think people really love them!
E: Well yeeeeeah! You really know how to pick 'em!
me: Wait. You picked them.
E: Exactly. And you picked me {insert cheesy, over exaggerated wink face}
He does have a good point!

NOT LOVING: heart freakin' burn.

LOVING: all things lace, frilly, girly and baby sized ;)

LOVING: boot socks. I need more of these in my wardrobe! I'd love links to your favorite etsy shops that sell boot socks!

NOT LOVING: missing my hubs. We are on completely opposite schedules in every way possible right now. He is working night shift (which makes my blood boil because he's not supposed to be on it right now) and his weekend is Wednesday and Thursday. I work out of town Wednesday's and Thursday's so I don't even get to come home to him :( This schedule would be so amazing if we didn't like each other.... but we do. So we get to miss each other all the time instead.

LOVING: reading! It's been too long since I've taken the time to read a book so I'm SO happy to be making time for it again! I need suggestions for books, please?!

LOVING: my little family! (minus the couple off to the side... I don't know how to crop pictures!)

Kelley said...

Cute shoes! I just got a pair of New Balances at TjMaxx for $40! Pretty comfy. I will have to try out the Nike Frees! The lace outfit is cute! :)

I'm so sorry about the opposite schedule. That stinks! Not sure what kind of books you like, but some of my faves/good ones I've read this year are: A Discovery of Witches, The Hunger Games series, Night Road by Kristin Hannah, Poisonwood Bible, Their Eyes were Watching God, Same Kinda Different As Me, and...there are so many more I could say, but that should give you a good start! ;) PS--love the new shoes!

Carlie said...

That stinks about the schedules! Hopefully his changes back to day soon!
You should read The 13th Tale!

jessica said...

love the shoes! i love bright colors with black..especially if it is in shoe form :)

check out picmonkey.com their crop settings are super easy and it's freeeeee! Also, if you haven't read them already, check out the pretty little liars series. it is so addicting and so juicy. course if you watch the tv show idk if you'd want to read the books because they are NOTHING alike.

Anyways, happy monday!

Ashley said...

You guys look so cute! That is such a bummer you are on opposite schedules. :( Hope it ends soon.

Laurie said...

Those shoes are awesome! I have to admit I only wear tennis shoes to the gym. If you liked the hunger games series I realllly suggest reading the matched series. I'm on the third book and I'm lovin it. And that frilly romper is to die for! So freakin adorable!

Karm said...

Oh dear. I love your posts. I can't help but get excited to see your lil princess too!
I love your shoes btw. Nice splash of colors.

I am also on opposite schedules with my husband too. It stinks!

Britt Hanson said...

I haven't commented in a while :) You are looking so cute!

I just read The Thirteenth Tale, by Diane Setterfield, and it was AMAZING. I am recommending it to everyone I know :)

Miranda said...

pooh on the opposite schedule thing--but I bet it's "great" when you're finally home together!!

OK--books--i just finished DIVIRGENT--loved it. reminded me of Hunger Games!!

Oh you two are going to be the best mommy and daddy EV.ER!!

Julie said...

I totally understand about missing your hubs. With this new job I have, I work nights so I can sub during the day and hubby works days so we don't get to eat dinner together, nada until my two days off. Makes me frustrated but it is what it is.

dlpower said...

ok where did you get that adorable baby romper? I love it. I need to invest in some comfy shoes. I have been wearing flip flops for the past 2 months thanks for swelling. Comfy shows sound so nice right now.

Ashley said...

So technically I guess you did pick those shoes, huh? Haha... how clever of your hubs. (:

I know all about mismatched schedules, I hope you get back to better schedules soon. That stinks!

"One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp... did you read that one, I forget? I just started reading it... I've heard it's good.

KayleeBeth said...

HAHA! your new 'kicks' are pretty cute :)

Megan said...

Everything with lace and ribbon and pearls and baby girl sized just MELTS MY HEART!!! Ahhhh! And that last picture is SO cute of y'all!!

lori said...

great picture of you two! and i love your kicks... sorry eric is on nights... i completely understand how you feel. my hubs is on nights as well... and "napping" beside me before he goes into work right now. it sucks being on opposite schedules!

Amber Watson said...

Heart burn...OMG the heart burn. It eventually gets better, but damn. I hate heartburn!

Amy Lynn said...

so fun! i love baby sized lace things. at church on sunday i saw the smallest baby with lace leggings.. i almost died! ohhh i'm just excited to see your baby :)

That Girl said...

I really want to check out those Nike Frees. I'm such a Nike girl.

Holly said...

I love the lacy frilly baby clothes! Too cute! :)

Tisha said...

You guys are so cute.:)

Not sure what kind of books you're into, but I enjoy epics. My favorite is Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude. I also like James Clavell's Tai-pan and Shogun, and Mario Puzo's The Sicilian (the lead character is my literary crush).

If you're into fantasy (and, er, kind of mainstream stuff), all the books in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. Although GRRM is taking forever to write the next book.

If you like young adult books, Book Thief made me cry.

ahhhhhhhhh baby ruffles!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dawn Brown said...

i completely understand how you feel! my boyfriend works days and i work evenings (2-10/3-11) and he also works out of state! so we never see each other... but on the bright side, one day it will be totally worth it!

Natali said...

Okay Courtney...with as much blogging as you do, you really need to buy/download at least a basic photo editing program haha. You don't know how to crop pictures?! Do you have a Mac? Trust me, photo editing is the easiest thing in the world. We need to remedy this problem. Let's discuss next time I come to get my hair done :-).
