Random Thoughts


1. Today we got a bit of ice here. I'm talking about a small dusting. But all the schools were closed and my office didn't open until noon. So I spent the morning cleaning house and enjoying a bit of down time before heading to work.

2. My car is totaled. I was 99% sure it would be but got the official word yesterday. Time to start car hunting. We have no idea what we want to get, I guess thats part of the fun, go out and test the waters and see what's out there! I will miss my Honda. I'm a Honda girl through and through.

3. I really haven't felt like myself lately. I've had a lot on my mind, and then all the drama happened Sunday and I just haven't felt "normal". On Tuesday night I tried watching Teen Mom, Real Housewives and something else I can't remember, but I couldn't get into any of them. You know Megan has a problem when trashy reality television isn't helping. Luckily by Wednesday night I was watching them. On the road up!

4. I am obsessed with watching my stomach bounce around. It is one of the weirdest, coolest, most amazing things ever. God is good.

5. Luke finally started to feel better yesterday thank goodness! This has just been a weird week and I hated him being sick. And I'll admit some of it was for selfish reasons. I was just so ready for everything to go back to normal, plus I really hated seeing him so sick. Thank goodness he is almost back to his normal self!

6. I haven't cooked once this week. I have been a bad wife.

7. I have memorized two scripture verses this year so far and it is amazing how those scriptures will come to mind at just the right time. The other night I woke up in a bit of a panic (I'm telling you I haven't been "normal" lately) and immediately a verse I didn't even realize I had memorized came flooding to my mind. I love that.

8. Since getting pregnant I have acquired about 1,000 new cardigans. It is the only clothing item that I can buy now and wear now and know that it will still fit once Eli is born. Therefore I have purchased a lot of them. They also cover my love-handles. Can't beat that!

9. I never read just one book at a time. I am currently reading 3 different books (Belly Laughs, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, and Radical). It causes me to read books much slower cause I'm reading so many!

10. I think it's that time of the year to go a bit more blonde with my hair. I've decided I like it better lighter. But then again I always change my mind.

I read Belly Laughs last month and loved it. It freaked me out a little, but made me laugh so hard!

I know what you mean about cardigans..even though I am not pregnant (yet). This is what I posted yesterday about cardigans :)

i love cardigans... they are so comfy and the covering the love handles thing... I totally agree with that!

Glad you and Luke are feeling better! I think the covering of love handles is the primary use of cardigans... Forget keeping us warm. :)

Erica said...

Bummer about the car! But I love car shopping (I know so many hate it, but I love it!) I drive an '08 Accord and love it, but am currently loving the new Ford Explorer, if only money grew on trees...

I read Belly Laughs and thought it was good. Have you read "Mommywood?" Tori Spelling is a bit flaky, but she has some great Mom-stories. You might get a good laugh or two.

So glad Luke is feeling better! Sounds like it was a nasty bug.

I LOVED "Radical"--it was such a convicting book! Sounds like you have had an intense week--hope next week involves less calamity!

Sweet Simplicity said...

I love the cardigan you wore at your shower. Little lady, I highly doubt you have love handles. You and your mom have the tiniest waists ever. Even pregnant you are tiny!

Lauren said...

I love cardigans...they just change up an outfit so much! And bummer about your car, hopefully you can find a new Honda that you love!

Michelle said...

Check out the Honda Pilot...I'm a Honda girl too and I love mine. Hope you get to feeling better soon!

Kristin said...

I'm with you on the cardigans! They cover so many imperfections :) Oh, and I LOVE my Honda CR-V. Perfect for car seat and stroller!

Carrie said...

It sucks about the car but get a Ford. The Fusion and Edge are AMAZING!

Melissa said...

So sorry about your car! Hopefully you'll find something you love!

I love cardigans too! They do wonders for covering love handles, although I'm pretty sure you don't have ANY, you cute tiny preggy! :) We're a Honda family too (we have a Pilot and Accord, we got used for great deals, a few more miles on them, but they're Hondas, they'll last forever ;)). I hope y'all find something great!

Becca said...

haha if #6 is true, than I'm DEFINITELY a bad wife because I'm not sure I've cooked once this YEAR!

Maryland Magnolia said...

So sorry about your car! No wonder you've been shaken up this week after such an accident! Next week will be much more normal :)

I read several books at once too! I can't help myself; there are so many good books out there to read that I have trouble pacing myself. And I like variety :)

I'm sorry that your car is totaled. But shopping for a new car will be fun!

Have fun looking for a new car, I love car shopping! Are you memorizing scripture for SSMT? Just wondering bc I am too.

So glad you are ok and Luke is feeling better. I did not cook much either last week. I need to start learning bible verses.
