Loving: reminiscing on all our adventures I've been able to share with my family the past month or so. I can't believe we fit in so much even with Eric basically working his life away. Eric and I went on our little babymoon cruise, we took Mia to the beach in Mexico for an amazing family vacation, Mia and I went to Utah to visit family (still have to recap that trip!) plus little stuff around home. I definitely have the wanderlust bug (and seem to have passed it on to Mia) so I'm grateful we've been able to do so much when I wasn't expecting to be able to do anything at all! I'm sure life will slow waaaaay down the closer we get to my due date and once baby boy arrives, so I'm loving giving Mia all of these adventures! Now if only we could figure out how to get paid to just travel and enjoy family vacations full time ;) Seems like that would be the life, ha ha!

Reading/Watching: I'm a Big Sister to Mia :) Someday I'll actually share something that I'm reading for myself! Until then, I'll be trying to prep Mia for the changes that are quickly coming her way!
I've been catching up on the Bachelorette on Hulu and guys, WHO ELSE HATES NICK?! Ugh, he literally disgusts me. I think he's such a creeper!
I can't even believe it but NCIS has finally been added to streaming on Netflix! Hallelujah! Eric and I are so behind on all of our shows, we go to bed after Mia does instead of catching up, ha ha. But we've actually been making the time to watch NCIS together a couple times a week and we are loving it :)

Trying to: gear up for transitioning Mia to a toddler bed! I have to admit that I'm not ready to kick her out of her crib, but I'm not buying another one for baby brother, so we have to transition! We actually won't do it until August as we have one more trip coming up, but I need to find her a bed! I always thought that I would skip the toddler bed and get a real bed when it was time for Mia to transition, but we've decided to have the kids (kids, weird!) share a room to keep a guest room available whenever friends/family want to visit. The bedroom is just too small to get the size of bed I wanted to get for Mia, so a toddler bed is the only choice for now. I would love any and all recommendations of where to shop for a toddler bed!

Wishing: that air conditioning didn't cost so much. It's NO fun paying $400 (a month) for AC, especially when ours is set at 79. Yuck! But I AM grateful that I live in this generation... I honestly wonder how people survived these Arizona summers before air conditioning! At least we won't have a heating bill in the winter. I'm willing to bet that we won't turn on the heat this whole winter (unless of course there is a crazy cold spell. We will be looking out for baby boy ;))

Excited for: how quickly time is flying! I'm ready to get past this summer heat AND have a baby in my arms instead of my belly ;) I am soaking up every second of this time of just me and Mia because I know I will miss it! We have had the best times together and I definitely don't want to wish that time away. But I also want to welcome the changes coming our way with open arms, hopefully that will help Mia adjust quickly? We will see! Either way, I'm excited to meet our baby boy but also taking advantage of living in the moment with my little bestie!

You sound just like me when I was pregnant! I couldn't wait for it to be over and to have Hallie in my arms!

P!nky said...

I'm A Big Sister sounds like an amazing book :) Hope you have a fabulous weekend, love!

When we were in AZ for the 4th, I was thinking the SAME thing... seems so much less stressful than this real life business. ;)

Alexa Zurcher said...

$400?!?! Ahh I would die! You're getting so close mama! Soon you'll have that baby in your arms. Can't wait!!!

I got Olivia's toddler bed for free from a neighbor, but if I didn't I wanted to get the one from IKEA that can be a toddler bed and transition into a twin.

I love ur currents :)

Nick is such a creep. WHY does she keep him around? I do not get it.
Running the AC is so expensive for us, too. And anything over 73ยบ and I feel like I'm melting. It's been a real battle between trying to keep this pregnant body comfortable and not spending a fortune to cool our house. The struggle...

Such exciting times! And that picture is gorgeous!

Jenn said...

400 bucks for AC??? What??? Omg, girl, I'm so sorry! That sucks! I'm super thankful for it on hot days tho, too. I really have no idea how people did it before!
Love that you're reading that book to Mia. I bet it's adorable! :)
Soak up that together time for sure--you'll be a family of 4 before you know it!
Have a great weekend girl!

Oh man, you make me feel better about my $200 bill, and that's the highest we go. That picture is TO.DIE.For! Sorry I don't post a ton of pictures, but I've always been bad about posting a ton of pics hence why I've had an IG for years, and only have a few hundred posts!

Erin LFF said...

That picture is seriously so beautiful- frame it, seriously! Nick is a creeper, but I don't like Kaitlyn either- this whole season has been blah for me! That's crazy to me how expensive the AC is out there-- oh my goodness!!!

Emily said...

You are Mia really do have the best times together, don't you? Reading your stories make me so excited to be a mom one day!

Elizabeth Birenbaum said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that first picture of you guys!!! So gorgeous.
Oh and I HATE Nick too. I actually kinda hate this whole season (and googled who won... oops!) but the Men Tell All looks so good that I might watch it. I kinda like the drama! LOL

Kirsty and Seth said...

Ah, Seth and I LOVE NCIS! It's pretty much our favourite show to watch together, that and the Mentalist but then that finished!

We got Caleb's junior bed from Ikea - cheap and good quality is always a winner in my books!

I always say to Wheat, "Can you believe that people actually get paid to travel and write about it?!" Wouldn't that be a dream? I REALLY don't like Nick, either. I'm definitely Team Shawn and still can't believe she let go of Ben Z. so early! My mind is officially blown by the cost of your air conditioning...and you keep it at 79?! UGH! That's awful, but you're right - you'll make up for it a bit in the winter!
