Playing in the rain yesterday afternoon.... heck yes! We ran for cover 2 minutes later though when the lightning and thunder went crazy!Loving: our time as a family of 3. I'm pretty uncomfortable these days (hello 8 months of pregnancy) but I'm trying not to let it slow me down too much. This time of just us with Mia is quickly coming to an end and I want to soak it up as much as possible! I'm starting to feel a little nervous about adding to the family (too late for that now though, right?!) but I'm definitely anxious and excited to see just how far my heart can really be stretched by loving another little one as much as I love Mia. How is it even possible?!
Reading/Watching: all the books for Mia :) I seriously need to get crackin' with a book for myself!
And you know I'm taking full advantage of Mia's nap time by catching up on all the trashy shows ;) I finally finished the Bachelorette and now it's time to play catch up on Hulu with Bachelor in Paradise, ha ha! And my que is looking pretty sweet with it's line up of updated shows on Netflix- Pretty Little Liars, Scandal, etc. I am trying to save some of these shows for the middle of the night feedings that are about to take over my life again, ha!
Trying to: get everything in order for baby brother... because I haven't really done a dang thing yet, ha! We do have some newborn diapers, clothes and pacifiers. You know, the necessities ;) But I realized we don't have ANY boy blankets. We were spoiled with Mia and gifted with some beautiful blankets as well as, my favorite, minky blankets (and other incredibly soft, cozy blankets) I am obsessed with those kinds of blankets but I don't sew (dang it!) Help this momma out (and let's be real, we're helping baby boy, too!) and tell me your favorite shops for blankets?! I'm hoping to find the softest, cutest blankets without breaking the bank ;) Even if I can just get my hands on one minky-ish blanket before he's born so that we have it for hospital and newborn photos... after that he can be wrapped in pink forever, HA!
Wishing: for cooler weather! The weather in Utah was absolutely gorgeous while Mia and I were visiting... Fall is just around the corner there! And it totally has me wishing for cooler weather here in Arizona (hello 115 degrees that is for casted in the next few days) October is my very favorite month in Utah and I will miss the changing leaves and crisp air! But I know I will be loving life in Arizona come winter time (because let's be real... winter doesn't exist here!)
Excited for: Halloween! I know it's a ways away and I'm sure I'll be lost in the looney bin trying to figure out life with a second child... but Mia officially picked her Halloween costume, as well as baby brother's, and I'm so excited to see them dressed up together! I can't believe I'll have TWO kids this Halloween! Plus, did I mention cooler weather?!
But seriously, if you missed it... I would love any and all recommendations for places to get baby blankets (my explanation is in "trying to")! Please and thank you :)
Linking up with Jenn!
