With the 24th Pick...

Let's just come right out and tell it like it is. I have been feeling totally uninspired this past week hence the lack of blog posts. After such a fun, celebratory weekend- I was left with sinus pressure/headaches and total exhaustion the past few days. It was all I could do to drag myself into the office and actually accomplish things! I've truly tried to not complain much throughout this pregnancy because overall I know I've had it pretty darn easy. However, at 33+ weeks I am definitely starting to feel all the "fun" late pregnancy effects. Trouble sleeping, aches and pains whenever I get up and even a little swelling in my feet by the end of the day. (Not quite cankle status, but still noticeable to me!) When I get home, the only thing I really want to do is nap, but it seems there is always something to do- such is life, right?

I think sometimes it's just difficult to think of things to blog about when my mind is on baby-related things about 95% of the time. Heck, I can barely concentrate at work right now because my mind is so baby focused! I told Jared it's like I've got senioritis, just counting down the days until our baby is here and I go on maternity leave. However, today at least it's an exciting day in the office. It's NFL DRAFT DAY!!!

It's always a flurry of excitement around here during the draft and I'll be keeping my ears open for any name-dropping going on in the building. My Bengals don't pick until 24th tonight unless any crazy trading happens (which I don't expect it to) but I can't wait to see who we snatch up. Between attending the combine and stalking all the "Path to the Draft" shows we can, Jared and I are pumped to see who the first few picks are as well. I love seeing these guys' dreams of playing in the NFL come true. It's nice to see them while they're still a little bit humble and before they're big millionaires.

Last year I posted 18 phrases that you can chime in with (or listen for) tonight and they are pretty much all still true. Minus that Johnny Manziel one... can he just go away already?? Who's watching the draft tonight? Who do you think will go first overall? Who else is taking a nap pre-draft so they can make it through round one?? :)

  1. I'm going to be watching a little bit tonight, but mostly on Saturday. Tell your Bengals to draft Alex Erickson. He's an underrated guy from my hometown. We're all hoping he gets a chance!

  2. That sucks that you've been feeling so sick and tired lately, but at least you didn't feel that way during your celebratory weekend! Hooray for the draft tonight! It just means that we're one more step closer to football season!

  3. I think it's totally understandable to be slowing down at this point - even in the brain! Hang in there.

  9. You're getting so close! And even if it's an easy pregnancy -- it's still a LOOOONG time to be pregnant and deal with all the hormones and everything else that comes along with it! I always get super sluggish toward the end of my pregnancies! (if we're being honest here, I'm super sluggish the whole time...) I found your blog through Courtney's From Here to Eternity...I hope that's okay! Hope you get some rest and can enjoy Draft night!
    xo, jen

  10. I know I should talk about your pregnant I can't... let's talk FOOTBALL. Can you draft common sense? Sometimes I wonder how such talent loses it's cool so often causing us (the team) to suffer?

  11. Your blog inspires me every time when I read it. I love reading blogs. I don't excite always by reading blog posts. But in your blog I find something that implies in blogging. Anyway, you’re unquestionably a great blogger and you have a skill to make your reader to keep reading your blog again and again. Keep up the magnificent work. Continue moving the people! This is one of the very interesting post. Because I am new in blogging and I require great instructional exercise like your post.I have some good work experience with a OOH Advertisement ERP and my words are clearly based on what I felt through such processes in the past.
