Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. We spent most of the weekend relaxing & watching football while it rained outside. We are so excited for Wednesday to find out if we are having a boy or a girl, that always seems to make the week creep by just a little bit slower! 😉 There is not much going on over here otherwise, January always seems to just be a slow month of organizing & getting back on a schedule after weeks of holiday craziness. And that’s just about where we are at!
Eloise is rocking the best baby mullet ever. Her hair is filling in really fast though & seems to be getting a little bit lighter. I can’t wait to see what it looks like by her first birthday!
I saw a funny quote the other day, “What size pants do you wear?” “Leggings.” That is totally me. I live in leggings & it’s kinda pathetic. Especially being pregnant, I tend to just live in comfortable clothes but I am really going to try this time around to find more things to wear. I never lost all of my baby weight after having Eloise & already can’t fit into my old jeans (the ones I wore with both girls while pregnant) so I have ventured into maternity pants territory right out the gate. I bought these Maternity Andie pants in green on sale & love them. I don’t plan on buying any more, but it feels pretty good to have one pair of stretchy pants that can’t double as pajamas.
Harper got an Elsa dress & crown for Christmas, she basically never takes them off. We told her that there is a baby in my belly, she says it’s a girl & that we are naming her Baby Izzy. You all already probably know that Izzy is our cat’s name as well as her two stuffed cats. I love the way her mind works! She has also turned into a full time negotiator. Every conversation with her consists of “If I do this, then I can do that, okay?” One of the houses in our neighborhood that had an amazing Christmas display just took everything down & Harper was so disappointed when we drove by. She asked me if we can stop at their house & ask them if we can help put it all back up. When I told her it was naptime, her response was “If I take my nap, then we can go help put those decorations back on the pretty house, okay? But only if I take a goooood nap. Okay?”
Eloise is still stop-drop-and-headstanding all over the house. Someone commented on another post that their grandmother used to say when a baby does this, they are looking for a baby brother or sister. That made me smile! 😉 Maybe it’s true!
It is not a resolution by any means, but I am going to try harder to make lots of new recipes over the next few months & add a few new go-to meals into our weekly rotation. This week we are trying crockpot carnitas, I got some input from friends who make them & also looked at a few recipes on pinterest. I can’t wait to try them. Do you have any easy recipes that you make every week? Would love to hear your favorites!
I added the Auld Lang Syne print into my etsy shop for those of you who are interested & also have a new coupon code that is good through the end of the week, 35% off with code HAPPYNEWYEAR. I hope you all know how grateful I am for your support of my shop over the last few years, I am so excited for some of the new prints & collaborations that will be coming in 2015!!5
I guess that’s all for now. Have a wonderful week!! XO
