It’s been awhile since I’ve done a post that wasn’t related to pregnancy or babies, so today is the day to get back into that…even though my life currently revolves around babies and will for…ever. #notmadaboutit
LOVING: Dom being off work. It’s been almost a month and I am so absolutely, completely not ready for him to go back. He made a comment the other day about how he could be off for six years and I would still complain that he was going back too early. Fact. Other things I’m loving include watching Isla love on Leo, thinking up/Pinteresting Valentine’s Day crafts for Isla to make, and all of our recent house projects.
READING: Nothing but blogs at the moment, but that’s due to having a new baby. I did finish my first book edit of the year about a week ago and am starting on my second, but for pleasure reading I plan to reread Bread & Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table. One of my favorites and a friend who borrowed it recently sent it back, so it’s time to finally make those recipes (from the book) that I’ve been delaying.
WATCHING: We just started the Dexter series over and we are loving it. We hadn’t seen the first episode (or any, really) in years, so we started it over since we spend a lot of our time in front of the TV with a new baby. We’ve almost blown through the entire first season in just three or four days.
ANTICIPATING: March! I recently joined the new Pure Barre studio in Fayetteville that opens in March, pretty much just in time for me to start working out again. So excited! In honor of working out again after waaaay too long, the gym bag below was purchased (but excuse the not-so-great photo).
LISTENING TO: We’ve been keeping the top country hits playlist on repeat because I could listen to Die A Happy Man by Thomas Rhett over and over again for days, but at the moment I’m listening to Taylor Swift’s Red album on iTunes.
PLANNING: Family’s visits to see us and that’s about it. We’ve sort of just been in the getting-by-with-a-newborn stage
WORKING ON: Finishing up our West Elm inspired coffee table. I freaking love it and can’t wait until it’s finished. It’s going to be a big statement piece in the living room and it’s coming together well! Pictures will be up soon.
WEARING: Well, there’s nothing exciting here in terms of clothes, but I’m obsessed with the Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black perfume I got for Christmas and I wear that any time I shower and make myself presentable.
WISHING: paternity leave lasted forever. A thousand more weeks, please?
