Weekend by the Numbers

Monday, Monday- we meet again, sadly. Another weekend gone by way too fast but isn't that how it always goes? I really wish maternity leave was something that started about 3-4 weeks before you had your baby... that would really come in handy when all I can think about is a nap at my desk every afternoon. This weekend was pretty uneventful in most senses, but I thought the best way to sum it up would be with a numbers post! So without further adieu- let me fill you in on the past couple of days:

16.2 - number of miles Jared ran this weekend. That crazy guy of mine ran a 5k Saturday morning and then went right out and finished his 5th half-marathon Sunday like it was no big deal. I'm so proud of him and absolutely love this photo my SIL snapped after his finish.

0 - miles I've run this year ;) Plenty of miles walked, but whewww- it's been a long while since this gal jogged. I can't even imagine what that's going to feel like if/when it ever happens again.

35 - thank you notes I finished writing and mailed this weekend.

1 - load of baby laundry completed. I just washed some swaddle blankets and towels, but it was surreal.

572 - approximate number of diapers we have stashed away. It sounds like SO many, but I know we'll be flying through them in no time at all.




2 - visits to Skyline in one weekend. Oops ;)

25 - times little man kicks me in the ribs in like, an hour. He is one active dude- that's for sure!

60 - minutes spent soaking my aching body in this goodness. There is nothing like the smell of lavender. It helps me relax before bed SO much and definitely eases some of the back pain.

7 - essential oils in my current collection. Like I said, lavender is great- but I love diffusing these various oils in the evening too. Any other Doterra fans out there??

43 - days until my due date. WHAT!?

5 - hours spent watching and tracking the NFL draft over the course of the weekend. I'm honestly pretty excited about who my Bengals picked up. I feel like we really filled a lot of holes and I'm pumped about football season!

Hope everyone had a great weekend-- Cheers to it being a new month!! :)

  1. Oh yes, lavender is the best!! The wedding we were at on Friday had dried lavender hanging from the entryway and I was obsessed. I'm so glad you love the pic of Jared!! I insisted he take one! He killed that half! :) also, nothing wrong with 2 skyline trips in one weekend. I'm quite jealous, actually!

  2. I use Young Living but love peppermint, grapefruit and lime in the morning or when I need a pick me up. Something about it really picks me up.

    When I was pregnant with C, I enjoyed Skyline often even thought hot dogs should have been off limits. C turned out okay so I say... MORE SKYLINE please!

  8. I see that you got one of our Tide players in the draft! Look at Jared go on running a half and a 5k in the same weekend! Crazy man! Look at all the diapers and baby laundry!!! That is going to consume your life here in a few weeks!! I love the Dr Teal's Epsom salts. I always get the lavender for me and the Eucalyptus for Chris. It does wonders! Hope you have a great week!

  10. Baby wants to be a runner like his dad! He's practicing getting those leg muscles working while in the womb, obviously.

    Jared may have run 16.2 miles this weekend, BUT you're growing a human so that's an even bigger deal!! ;)

  11. Oh my gosh, I totally love that Epsom salt as well. One of my favorites! :)

    & congrats to Jared for all that running! Wow! He probably ran more this past weekend than I have in the past two YEARS! Tee hee!

  12. I always love your 'numbers' posts!! Your husband is a beast!!! I can't even run a full mile lol. Woo hoo for knocking our 35 thank you notes!! Those are so important, but SO time consuming lol. What is Doterra?? I've looked into oils but they are all so expensive! Can you really tell a difference with them? I would love any input you have on them :)

  13. I was always so grateful for stashed diapers especially one's in the next size up, it's amazing how one day you just look and decided a different size is required.

  14. I can't believe that Jared not only ran a 5K, but also ran a half marathon this weekend! Way to go Jared! Your due date is coming up so incredibly fast! I can't even imagine how excited you are and how surreal it must be to almost be there!

  15. WOW! Congrats to Jared for running that much this weekend, that is insane! My legs would fall off! And I am SO jealous of your Skyline. The last time I was up there I had it 4 times... in 5 days. LOL! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes
