I just want you all to know that I found motivation over the weekend!!! How exciting :) some friends of ours were coming over for game night, and apparently that's all I needed to turn into a cleaning whirlwind. Brilliant. And, my bff Emily is coming for part of her spring break so that will give me another boost of motivation to clean. I'm hoping anyway..sorry Em, if the house is trashed.
In other news, I spent roughly a bazillion hours at the mall today..and only spent money on lunch since I was starving! How strong am I? I went because apparently in WV you have to have some sort of safety inspection on your car? Who knew? Fortunately, the auto place I took it was right next to the mall (win) so I wasn't completely bored out of my skull. And being the naive blond that I am, I was assuming it'd take all of 10 minutes. hah. As a result, I got to spend some quality time in the food court chowing down on a $5 footlong (thank you Subway) and browsing some maternity/baby clothes!
Even being in my third month of pregnancy, I still haven't wrapped my mind around the fact that there's something in there growing and that Jesse and I are going to be parents. I figure that realization will come when I start to show and can feel the baby moving around..but looking at maternity clothes sure was a step towards that point also! Walking around pricing some stuff thinking "oh, I'll like these in a few months..I'll want to wear LOTS of tank tops since I'll be super pregnant during the summer" kind of helped solidify some things. And looking at baby clothes? Yikes. Whenever Jesse and I would walk past the baby section in a store I'd say "oh that's cute" or "how precious is this?!" but now..now it's "oh, I like this, I could actually get this soon for my baby." I was telling my sister-in-law I think my uterus started jumping when I was looking at onesies. I'm not sure how to explain it, but it was really exciting to look at things and know it's actually for me this time, not for someone else.
Oh, and one more thing. If any of you are curious about how I will be as a parent, please check out my other blog for a post about raising a dog-- in my opinion, excellent training ground. Written shortly before I found out the excitement, I still think it holds true. Zeke continues to be a handful at almost 9 months..love that dog.
