Last week had some rough bits, like finding out our bikes were stolen, dealing with plumbing issues, sorting out complicated paperwork, and all sorts of frustrating setbacks on a million tiny things. But instead of blogging about that heap of mundane annoyances, here are 5 quick things making me happy these days.
Today I am thankful for…
The girls weekend I had with my sister-in-law and soon-to-be sister-in-law. We hit a barre class, brunched like champions, analyzed every dress in the mall, and generally confirmed my belief that the only thing better than growing up with brothers, is when they marry awesome women.
The fact that my bridesmaid’s dress fits. GLORY. When we ordered it in December, it was a wild guess as to what would fit at 39 weeks pregnant. I picked it up Friday and I think there is just enough room for me to squeeze myself in after a couple more weeks of growing this baby. I am hopeful about channeling this:
…instead of this:
Smoothies. I was never much of a smoothie person, but now I want them all the time. A banana, some frozen fruit, a handful of spinach, a quick plunge of the immersion blender, and MAGIC. Breakfast. Or snack. Or dessert.
The individual slices of cake that the grocery story sells. Ok, a less healthy note than the smoothie one, but more healthy than me eating an entire cake by myself- something that seems 100% feasible at this point in my cake cravings.
Leggings that fit. My mother-in-law sent me a Mother’s Day package with the coziest leggings ever and there is a strong chance I will wear nothing else for the remaining 4 weeks that this kid is supposed to stay in. He is measuring quite large and I feel it in every corner of my body, hence the dire need for stretch and comfort in every decision. [Insert all the terrified emojis to express how I felt when the otherwise kind doctor started estimating his large birth size.]
Hope that your weeks are giving you lots to be thankful for!
