Good Monday morning! Can you believe August is halfway over? We are definitely inching closer to chili, pumpkin muffins and leaves changing colors… oh, and closer to meeting Baby D, too, of course. So much to be excited about!
I’m trying to make the most of my weekends before they are consumed by Baby D for a little while, so here’s a peak at what a typical weekend for me looks like now…
I do my best to still fit in a nice waddle around the neighborhood, despite the fact I have a constant BH contraction that lasts the entire time.
I was totally wild this weekend and decided to do grocery shopping on SATURDAY. I made my list and since Harris Teeter was doing double coupons, I tried my hand at couponing. I looked up websites for products I knew I needed to see if they offered any coupons. Some did. The final result was that I spent over an hour looking for coupons, that ended up saving me $7.
That’s why I’m not a couponer.
I did have fun hitting up the local farmers market though. A large canvas bag full of fresh, local produce for $15? Yes, please. It saved me more $$$ than the coupons did.
At the grocery store I was searching for pickled jalapenos, when a lady stopped and giggled at me. She said I was picture perfect. What she meant was I was obviously very pregnant and standing in front of the pickles. She thought it was great!
Saturday night we decided to be wild and get out of the house, so into Charlotte we went, despite the rain!
We met a friend at Whiskey Warehouse to watch the Panthers play. I decided before the game that I’m going to be a big Panthers fan this year!… and what do you know? We beat the Giants! I can’t believe I’m cheering for sCam Newton, but hopefully he’ll make this season exciting. Maybe it will even be fun to care about NFL this year… not that it will ever be able to compare to college football. GO DAWGS!
Even though I had to pass on the beer, I really enjoyed indulging in the bar food…
Sunday morning I woke up aching. My hips burned and my legs felt so sore. I’m definitely nearing the end of pregnancy. I didn’t sleep well and was tired. Sweet Hubbs made breakfast while I bummed on the couch and watched the news.
Pawlenty is out of the race. Can’t say I’m bummed about it.
Sunday included some playing around in the kitchen, my favorite!
and more than one nap (isn’t that what Sundays are for?!)
Hubbs enthusiastically said to add these to the ‘make again’ list.
Sunday came to a relaxing close with a movie (Source Code… it was ok-ish) and we finished painting the letters to hang on Baby D’s nursery wall, spelling out her/his name 🙂
And now it’s Monday of a busy week- yay! Let the days fly by- I’m ready to be a mommy!
Speaking off, I think Baby D is trying to escape, too. I know it’s fuzzy, but check out these big ‘ol belly wiggles!
What are you looking forward to most about fall?
For me it’s meeting my baby, obviously. 🙂 But also college football, pumpkin beer, cooler weather and jeans and boots! 🙂
