I'm in the desert (don't get me wrong I LOVE Arizona). It's just not as easy to find those changing leaves (Virginia- even Utah- was better than my hometown in California in that department). BUT. When I do see those colors I stop and soak them in. I appreciate them more. When I was prego with Brody we had a couple trees right outside the pediatrics office that I worked at and I watched every leaf fall off. Even though it still feels like death outside right now that'll all soon change and I can't wait! I LOVE fall time.
Yesterday morning I woke up particularly energized and decided it was high time I decorate for Halloween. It feels SO good to have my few decorations sprawled around my living room. Some of these I made as a kid- I have a lot more halloween decoration collecting to do.
What else did I do before my twelve o'clock class? Why, I found these two long pieces of scrap material my sister gave me years and years ago. I finally got my sewing machine from my mom (it's been sitting in Virginia since Christmas). So I made a table runner. I didn't measure and I'm no seamstress- in fact, I haven't sewn a thing since I was in young women's (on a machine anyway- I've always sewn by hand! Remember?) I was proud of myself!
Oh and a quick pregnancy update- haven't done this in a while...
Things are good, life is good. I still feel more pain than I expected but I can manage as long as I'm not super active running around all day. I'm not too stressed with school or my business, let's keep it that way. People stare like I forgot to put pants on but so far no strangers groping me. I get Braxton Hicks contractions like 20 times a day (I've been having them since 16 weeks and I was really worried about that at first). Brody wants to be held allllll the time "I want to hug you!" It's hard not to pick him up so I do most of the time. Doc says everything looks great, we have a healthy boy on the way. I can't believe I'm down to single digit weeks!
