37 Weeks Pregnant

1 comment:
How Far Along: 37 weeks

Feeling: No surprise, super tired. In the last couple weeks I've started passing on activities that take place in the afternoon and I'm starting to do the same for the mornings. I don't mind having people over, it's going places that drains me.

I've become even more of a nap dictator too- Gabriel will nap at home in his crib and no activities or plans are going to interfere with that. I try to be flexible most of the time with this but I'm at the point where I too need to nap or at least lay down in bed for an extended period of time in order to make it through the rest of the day. If Gabe falls asleep in the car right before nap, even if it's just for 10 minutes, his nap is ruined and therefore I no longer get the break I need too.

Introducing, Young and Rad (Review)

No comments:
Hey friends! I was recently asked as a blogger if I'd be interested in working with the up and coming children's clothing line company Young and Rad- they send me items and I share and review them with you! As always, my reviews are honest. Please check out my disclosure page if you have any questions or concerns.

Before I get to sharing the product let me first tell you a little about them...

Based in the USA this company was created by a group of designers, fashion bloggers and of course mothers who felt that the current clothing lines and options were missing the mark when it came to dressing children to fit their raw, real (wink), and carefree spunky personalities. With just one quick look at their website you will notice that their clothing style is indeed different than what you'd find at, let's say, your local Target. Now I have no beef with Carter or any of those other mega huge clothing lines for kids but I did find it refreshing to see something new.

Salsa Verde (Crock Pot) Chicken Soup

I cannot even remember the last time I posted a dinner recipe, remember when I used to post one crock pot recipe a week? Yeah I think that was pushing two years ago so if you don't remember, no hard feelings.

I planted many herbs and vegetables when we got home from Japan and though everything almost everything has started to thrive (replanted some stuff), nothing holds a candle to my large terra-cotta pot of cilantro, I mean WOW! Ironically I've never cooked much with cilantro so the fact that I picked the biggest pot to plant it in doesn't make sense; chalk that one up to pregnancy brain. However, since I now have so much I've been challenged to get creative and explore some new recipes and flavors! It appears that cilantro is most often used in Mexican flare dishes which thankfully has not made it onto my food aversion list the entirety of this pregnancy, SCORE!

Mom Lovin Hop No.57


The Lovely hosts of the Mom-Lovin Hop have decided to take a 'summer hiatus' from the Hop! With two of us having babies we all would love to spend some time focusing on our families! We love this link up and the community we have built and will definitely be back hosting in September! We hope that throughout the summer you'll all still stay connected with the mamas you have met through the hop!

35 Weeks Pregnant- Camping at Lake Wenatchee

Pregnancy is quickly progressing towards the end result- I'm feeling it more and more. It's getting harder for me to keep my hormones/emotions in check, thank goodness for a wonderful husband who picks up the pieces while I am falling apart!

We've moved Gabriel into his room so now the nursery is open and I'm slowly organizing it with Gabriel's Newborn through 9 month clothes! I pulled out the most gender neutral items I can find, we'll see if I'll go back for the more boyish items or if I'll be needing to go out and buy some girly pieces!

We have so many more things on our to-do list to knock out but my anxiety levels are getting higher and higher (and energy levels getting lower and lower) so I'm needing to limit my commitments in order to keep that in check. What that means is I'm starting to keep a lower profile with slower days at home. I'm trying to be better about doing what's best for Gabriel and I rather than doing what I feel like is expected or desired of me from others. Having people over hasn't seemed to be an issue but venturing more than 15 minutes away visiting others is a little more challenging since more often than not it means I lose Gabriel's nap time. Nap time is more precious than gold and more valuable than any item of worth on the planet right now, no exaggeration.

Mom Lovin Hop no.56

Okay, how come none of you ladies stopped me from booking a tent camping trip this weekend back in February? Yes, at 35 weeks pregnant I'm camping for three nights and four days and oh, it's supposed to be about a bazillion degrees out high 90's low 100's. Call me crazy but I am still excited! 

No Guest Co-Host this week! 
If you're curious to experience hosting a hop, now is your time! We make it super easy for you- all you need to do is copy and paste the HTML into your post, upload, and mention it on your social media! TA-DA! Let us know if you're interested. Oh, and it's FREE!

Infant Floral Headband Tutorial

Lets make this clear, we do not know what the gender is of our baby, don't want to start rumors! However, since the day we knew we were pregnant with number two we've been under the strong assumption that we're having a girl. Not sure why the hunch, and do hunches really matter, but that's where our head is at!

The whole not knowing hasn't been an issue besides not knowing which kind of name we need to be set on. We've had our girl name settled since before getting married but with the increase of people we know starting to have children, that name was chosen by someone else. Chris isn't bothered but I'm having a harder time with it since the name has felt so unique to me for years now. We've gone back and forth on other girl names but nothing has resonated as deep. When push comes to shove who knows, we'll probably keep with the name we've loved so dearly since we started talking about the kids in our future.

With my nesting and maternal emotions starting to kick into overdrive, the idea of having a sweet headband for our potential darling daughter to sport after birth sounded like a fun project! Please believe that we WILL NOT be disappointed if we have a boy- the idea of having another boy so close to Gabriel's age sounds AMAZING and since both boys would be born the same time in August all clothing hand-me-downs would match up PERFECTLY!
