The 1000th Post // Currently // Thank You Giveaway

A little over four years ago I hit the publish button on my very first blog post. In the months and years that followed that first post it's been fun seeing how this space of mine has changed and taken shape over time. It's a fluid thing, and watching it evolve and grow has brought me so much joy. And today is my 1,000th post. That's crazy to me.

To celebrate I'm pulling out one of my favorite types of posts.
(Be sure to stick around for the end, I have a little thank you for following along with me on this blogging journey.)

Currently

Making :: A million lists for the things we'll need, and need to do, for our Yosemite trip this week.

Drinking :: Water. Coffee. The occasional root beer.

Reading :: Out of the Shadows by J.K. Winn. A mystery/thriller that hasn't disappointed since cracking it open.
via
Planning :: So. many. things. The aforementioned trip, our next trip to Disneyland (new week!), Marcus' big boy room, M²'s nursery, summer camp for Marcus.

Wanting :: A big fat glass of Pinot Noir. Come on August!

Looking :: For the perfect nursery ideas for M² s room. I think I know the colors I want to incorporate, but from there I'm kind of at a loss…

Playing :: Legos. Cars. Play Doh. Tents and forts. Baseball. Soccer. My little man keeps me on my toes.

Watching :: Guys, I drank the kool-aid. I've been watching Dancing With the Stars. But, only because The Bachelor's Chris Soules is on this season.
via
Wishing :: For an extra few hours in the day. And maybe for time to simply slow down a bit. There is so much that needs to be done before August and I'm beginning to wonder if it's possible to get it all done.

Enjoying :: The last few months of one-on-one time with Marcus. I'm really trying to take and appreciate every moment we have together. Both our worlds are going to be rocked in a few months, and I'm soaking up this mommy/son time while I can.
Missing :: Wine. Sleep. Fitting into my regular clothes.

Waiting :: For a few items to arrive for Marcus' room. Once those get here we can really get to work pulling his room together.

Wondering :: How our family of three will adjust to being a family of four… And how Marcus will do in preschool. His school starts just four days after my due date, and I hope he will transition well with all the changes I'm about to throw his way.
Loving :: That I can finally share the kicks and movements of M² with Scott and Marcus. It's been so fun having my guys feel the little lady moving around.

Marvelling :: At what the female body is capable of doing. Creating, carrying and sustaining life is pretty awesome (even if I do admittedly dislike being pregnant).

Needing :: Sleep. It's always sleep.

Noticing :: That I can no longer hide the ever growing baby bump.

Worrying :: That I'm getting enough nutrients for this little lady. I simply cannot take my prenatals, they make me so sick. I hope what I'm putting in my body is enough for both M² and me.

Feeling :: So thankful for my two amazing guys, my family, and you, my readers!

  11. So jealous you are going to Yosemite. One of our high school friends and her fiancĂ© are big time into photography and just made a trip there. Their pictures of Yosemite were breathtaking. I can’t wait to see your pictures. Prenatals made me so sick, too. I tried so many different variations. Finally my doctor told me to take the chewy Flintstone vitamins (kids) and that worked! They have all of the stuff a prenatal has. Have you tried those? Great pictures!

    Spring... what is spring? I think we skipped right to summer? But my favorite thing about spring is the weather and the sunshine! Wait... can I say that? LOL.
    Also, TOTALLY watching DWTS also! And I can't help but watch Chris on it. He's not... great but not awful either! He must have a lot of voters voting for him!
