The Good Things

Y'all... it has been a week. And you know what I mean by A WEEK when I start my blog post off with a good y'all. It was just one of those weeks where something seemed to go wrong every day. Why does life seem so stressful sometimes? I know deep down I'm living a great life and have so much going for me and my family, but there are also times that it just gets overwhelming, ya know? I admit, I felt like a crazy person with my up and down emotions over the last few days but I guess that happens to the best of us from time to time. (Pregnant or otherwise!)

It was a little bit of everything... car problems, house repairs, money stresses, changes at work. Ugh, talk about a headache. I'll spare you most of the details, but sometimes life is just annoying and overwhelming even when in the back of your mind you know everything will be okay. So instead of dwelling on how many things went wrong this past week, I'm trying to hold my head up and think about all the good things that are going on around me.

-A sweet gift from Amanda. This book is so adorable, especially since the nursery is ocean themed! It arrived on the perfect day too where I just needed a little something to make me smile.

- Freddy's frozen vanilla custard with Oreo. Sometimes you just don't ask questions when your husband wants to pick up milkshakes before dinner.

- Coloring as a stress reliever. I find myself reaching for the colored pencils more and more often and I truly find it relaxing when I'm having a stressful moment.



- This morning I have my 30 week (well, 30w3d) appointment and those are generally a positive. It's nice to hear that everything is going as it should be so hopefully I get a good report again this morning. I'm officially at the point where I see my doctor every 2 weeks!

- Having some downtime to myself this weekend. Jared is having guys night and I am opting to stay in and relax and/or get some things done and/or get my nails done. We'll see where the night leads me but regardless, having some unscheduled time to myself will be glorious.

- Also this weekend is our first baby shower! I cannot describe how surreal that sounds/feels but I'm looking forward to celebrating our little man with Jared's side of the family.

-I won $100 Visa gift card through a Twitter party which was pretty stinkin' cool. While I wanted to treat myself to something, I used it for all practical things we need/will need. Boring maybe, but it was nice to not spend "my" money on household items. Prime Pantry for the win!

It's easy to lose sight of the good amongst the crazy, but I hope you can take the time to see it, too. Happy weekending!!!

  2. I'm so sorry life has been stressful and overwhelming. I've been in that phase for months now, and it wears you down. I felt like it was a huge deal when the biweekly appointments started! You're getting so close! I liked them because it was good to keep hearing everything was going well. It helped me cope when I felt frantic trying to work and prepare for a baby.

  3. Life does get stressful sometimes! Even though we all have so much to be thankful for, sometimes when things are really stressful it's hard to not let them effect us. It sounds like your weekend is going to be pretty awesome though with your relaxation session and your first baby shower! Have fun at your doctors appointment too!

  10. I hope your weekend is relaxing and overflowing with happiness to balance out your not so great week! Colouring has become one of my top relaxation methods too, my only complaint is that once I start I hate to stop! I want to keep colouring!

  14. Sorry your week was crazy/stressful. I feel like maybe there was something floating around Ohio this week. Yay on winning that $100 to Target though. Always nice not to spend your own ducats.

  15. Ugh. I'm sorry it's been such a rough week. When it rains, it always seems to pour. I think you deserve a pedicure. ;) Just saying. Also, spending the "free" money on necessities is a genius move because now you can spend YOUR money on the fun things. Have a wonderful weekend and can't wait to hear all about the shower!!!

  20. I've never been to a Freddy's but we just recently had one open here and I've heard good things! Did you know that in some areas there was a shortage or colored pencils due to adult coloring books? Heard that on my drive to work this morning. Crazy! After a stressful week, I hope you enjoy your weekend! -xx Leah || Chasing Texas
