currently

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!

You are just the cutest family!!!! Mia with that umbrella is soooo cute :)!

Jenn said...

First of all, Mia is adorable. Is she ever not adorable? I don't think so!
Second, I'm so glad that you're all caught up on Bachelorette. Now get to Bachelor in Paradise so we can dish!! :)
Third, I almost fell out of my chair when you said you were excited for Halloween. Now I understand why after reading the rest of it, but don't wish away my last couple weeks of freedom, please! haha
Link up your post with Jessi and I!

I can't imagine fall being around the corner anywhere with it in the 100's here! I read blogs about transitioning wardrobes and I'm like WHAT?! We still have months of still being hot in shorts and tank tops!

Never too soon to get excited for Halloween, at least in my Halloween loving book =)
I think you will really enjoy winter in the warmth! I'm with you though about missing the Fall, but come January where FL weather really gets pretty lovely...I'm like haha rest of the country. It only lasts for a brief period so go ahead and enjoy it.

This site makes some cute minky blankets although they are kinda spendy. The quality is great though https://www.etsy.com/shop/LoveAndLullabiesCB?section_id=all&page=5

I am totally a seamstress when it comes to baby blankets. I make them for all my friends and family and would love to make your darling new baby boy one. Let me know if you are interested.

I'm excited for Halloween too...actually, I'm excited for anything fall. Ha! :)

Amanda Klein said...

Ah, monsoons and haboobs! AZ weather is cray cray, riiiight?? My favorite is that there's no actual advice for what to do while driving in a haboob (dust storm). You can't really drive because it's impossible to see, and you can't just pull over because someone is very likely to run into you (if your hazards are on it's just blinding diffused light, and if they're off you are totally invisible). But get ready, November through March is AMAZE.

It is never to early to plan Halloween and having two little ones is going to be so awesome. I can't wait to see what she picked out :)!

Come on cooler weather!

Evelina said...

Can't wait to see what the little ones (plural!) will be dressed up as for Halloween this year!

Elizabeth Birenbaum said...

Can't wait for Scandal to come back too!!! And I love How To Get Away with Murder! Bachelor in Paradise is my guilty pleasure... I've been making Seth watch it with me and I think he secretly likes it :)

Little Giraffe blankets are amazingly soft but so expensive (we were gifted one)! But my very favorite are the Aden + Anais bamboo swaddles, and their dream blanket for when they become more of a toddler!

Rebecca Virginia said...

Just followed your blog! So happy I did, it's lovely here, I think I will stay forever! haha
