I’m sharing the highlights of my week… five to be exact! Focusing on five little things that made me happy is my way of recapping the week and a reminder to stay grateful.
1 – Pool Time. After a blazing summer of 90 degree temps, I finally made it to the neighborhood pool. I was feeling discouraged after a weekend of nesting fails, but hanging out in the water was exactly what I needed… and just in time! Overnight the temps dropped and it’s been cool and/or drizzly all week. Can’t say I mind the change in weather!
2 – 37 Weeks. Full term! Baby is the size of romaine lettuce or swiss chard, depending on your app of choice. I’ve been bumped up to weekly doctor appointments and she’s measuring 7 lb 5 oz… and still growing!
3 – Apple Season. I’ve been eating an apple a day and craving an apple cake after seeing this recipe.
4 – Ottlite. This portable light is great for stitching at night… and my belly is the perfect platform for propping it up.
5 – Podcasts. I’m getting more uncomfortable physically as the days leading up to my due date dwindle, and distractions are appreciated, like new episodes of my favorite podcasts. Young House Love Has a Podcast, Modern Love, What Should I Read Next?, and Pop Culture Happy Hour are my weekly staples.
