1) My Pedicure
My last one before baby number two makes her arrival. I know it’s kinda silly to feel like a pedicure is so important but I haven’t been feeling very girly/pretty/special lately and shiny red toes make such a difference.
2) Being pregnant
To be honest, I added this to my list in the spirit of “fake it till you make it.” I have good pregnancies. I really do and I’m thankful to even be pregnant, but I have been feeling UG-LY. Feeling the baby move around is comforting and I try to remember she will be in my belly for such a short time. Another positive: not having to worry if my stomach looks fat in clothes. No muffin top and I have really tight abs.
3) A New Book
Yesterday I stumbled upon a really funny, really wonderful book in Barnes and Noble. The Christian Mama’s Guide to Having a Baby. I was having a gloomy day and this funny, real-life advice book was such a pick me up. Erin has three more books coming out soon with advice for Christian Mamas from pregnancy to sending your little one off to school. (Stay tuned…there may be a book giveaway on my blog soon!)
4) The Newest Daddy Blogger on the Block
A few weeks ago, while Jason was sitting in first-class (Ty and I were in coach, just in case you were wondering) he jotted down a few thoughts about being a daddy. As these thoughts turned into sentences and paragraphs, he started to feel encouraged. Maybe these thoughts would be encouraging to others. 30,000 Ft and Thinking was born.
(P.S. I didn’t mind being in coach. I’ve had a lot of opportunities to fly first class as a flight attendant, and NOBODY wants a baby in first.)
