Unplugged

Hey, world. Remember me? The girl that sometimes blogs around here... and sometimes doesn't? Most of last week I unplugged from the blog world and even unplugged somewhat from a lot of social media/technology world too. It was much needed. Every year when football ends for me, whenever that happens to fall, I have such mixed emotions. The hours are long and grueling for a few months and it's like all the noise and chaos just gets to me, without me realizing it. So when the season is over- my mind can finally be my own again. My mind can think about things that have been put aside for long periods of time, my mind can start adjusting to the off-season. It may not make sense but hey- it's where I'm at on things and the week of being a total introvert did me some good. I hope ;)

All that to say, I feel refreshed and ready to tackle big things in the coming weeks and months. I've got a lot on my plate still, with some big challenges and happenings right around the corner but for now I'm in a good place. A place that involves catching up with friends, date nights, tackling house projects and everything in between :)

Friday night Lacey and I had a pregnant chick slumber party at her place. Her hubby was out of town so we spent the whole night catching up, eating and talking all things baby related. It's the best thing in the world being pregnant the same time as your closest friend! We are both first timers at this so we can discuss anything and everything, laugh at ourselves and figure it out together as we go along. Lacey is due 5 weeks before me and I love thinking about our kiddos growing up together!
This is what girls night looks like these days :)

Saturday I came home to discover that Jared had taken multiple loads of our junk to donate, including some old pieces of furniture we'd been meaning to get rid of for months. He got the old dresser out of what will be the baby's room and now I feel like I can finally visualize what we have space for in there! It was a nice welcome home, for sure so I treated that guy to dinner out on the town and we watched AntMan together. Jared had seen it in theaters but I hadn't yet- I loved it though! Paul Rudd is great.

This week will hopefully bring productivity, good news and maybe even an actual workout routine again. No guarantees on any of those things though ;)

  3. Sounds like the best kind of girl's night! I've always wanted to be pregnant at the same time as one of my close friends, but now living so far away that doesn't sound as fun. SO I'll need one of them to move here and then get pregnant, duh! ;)

    Glad you took some needed time off!

  8. Sometimes you just need what you did - and I haven't had a slumber party in years. Cheers to that!

  9. I totally understand what you mean about sometimes just needing a break from at all. It seems like you're on the right track to getting reset after the chaos of football season! I love the idea of your pregnant girls' sleepover! I think that it would be so much fun to share that special time in your life with a great friend!

  11. That sounds like the perfect weekend to me! And yes to unplugging -- sometimes stepping away, regrouping and coming back slowly is the best answer. Also, how sweet of Jared to get all of that taken care of -- what a guy!

  12. Oh my gosh, I LOVED Ant-man...now, I wanna go home & watch it right now. Ha, ha!

    That's awesome that you're pregnant the same time as your friend. It's going to a good ol' adventure for the both of you. :)

  14. Sometimes unplugging is MUCH needed! So glad to have you back, though. Looks like the perfect girls night. SO fun that you guys are pregnant together! I thought Antman was good, too. Paul Rudd pretty much makes any movie good.

  15. Yes to our matching leggings :) I feel like every girl wants to pregnant at the same time as their sister/friend to have someone to talk it out with. Hope you enjoyed a little R&R.

  17. Going off the radar is always good for you. I love that you did so and enjoyed some down time. You are going to miss the quiet downtime when Baby M is around and becomes the boss of all things life.

  18. A week of being unplugged and a girl's night is exactly what you needed and what everyone needs now and then! I am so excited that you now have the time to focus on some things other than football!

  19. oh hey, welcome back! i love taking random weeks to unplug. it's much needed. 2 of my best friends were pregnant at the same time, and i would love to be pregnant the same time as a friend but it doesn't look like it's gonna happen as those 2 are most definitely finished with kids (in all the scientific ways lol) and my other friend doesn't want kids.. so i'm hoping for an internet friend at least! lol
