WORKING ON: We are having a really casual Olympic Ceremony party tonight with friends. I made a bunch of flag banners yesterday and also drew a fun new chalkboard design on our chalkboard. I love themed parties and well, I also LOVE the Olympics. Like I really, really love the Olympics. I always get so choked up watching them. It’s just so crazy to me that the world comes together over this event. Crazy, huh? We are suppose to dress up in colors of our favorite country. You can bet Rowan and I will be sporting all the Canadian gear we have.
THINKING ABOUT: I have been thinking a lot about Rowan lately. How these are our last few months with just her. I am excited to be adding to our family, but I am trying to cherish this special time with her as well. She is getting so, so big and I don’t want to take for granted these last few months. We have a lot of big things coming up before the baby comes and I don’t want to lose sight on really focusing on the little time we have left as just Rowan and Mommy during the day.
ANTICIPATING: WE FIND OUT THE SEX OF THE BABY ON MONDAY!! Holy Cow that came up fast. We went back and forth whether we would find out or not. We found out with Rowan but with all the baby gear already we saw the fun in waiting. We decided we would get one ultrasound and if the baby was cooperating we would find out and if not then we would wait.
LISTENING TO: The newest Regina Spektor. It is grey and rainy out, we are still in our pjs and it’s the perfect soundtrack for our morning.
EATING: I can’t seem to get enough pasta lately. It is such a comfort food for me. I could eat it everyday (I wish I actually could). I also can’t seem to eat enough green apples and I usually never drink juice, but all I want all the time is really cold juice or ice tea.
THANKFUL FOR: The steps we are taking with Rowan in potty training and sleeping. I feel like we woke up this morning and had some huge wins. After a pretty defeating week with it all, last night and this morning was what we all needed to boost some confidence. I know we aren’t 100% there yet, but Rowan slept through the night in her bed and has not had one accident all morning. She even went poop in her potty this morning for the first time (sorry I know that is TMI but we were really excited over here!!).
PLANNING FOR: This week brought the official news we got our house!!! We had an offer accepted at the beginning of the month, but we were waiting for the house inspection, mortgage applications, etc… to be cleared before getting all excited. We close on August 30th and it feels like an eternity away. I want to move now. I hate waiting, but we have a lot of planning, packing and moving to do this month. How exciting!!
Happy Weekend Guys!!
