Awkward & Awesome Thursday

CussAwkward:
-Tummy aches and headaches. Is second trimester the time of aches?
-The cats have been fighting amongst themselves a lot lately. Not a huge deal, except they choose to do so IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. Pregnant mama is not amused.

Awesome:
-I’ve read 45 of the Modern Library’s Top 100 Novels of All Time!
-Lin Manuel-Miranda getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! He’s a genius… so deserves the recognition!
-Harry Potter’s 20th Anniversary this week!! These novels have really been a life-saver for me and many others. I am so grateful to J.K. Rowling for sharing her dreams with us all. Congratulations on 20 years of excellent novels/films/characters!

Franklin & Callie

Awkward:
-First trimester symptoms: nausea, constipation, and fatigue… OH MY.
-The beginning of second trimester woes. Bleeding gums and belly aches?! What IS pregnancy?!
-Having to have the difficult conversation when you’d rather run the other way. Being an adult is difficult.

Awesome:
I AM PREGNANT! Everything worked out really easily for us and I am so grateful for this life inside of me. Baby C is a very loved little bebe.
-Mitch has an art show this weekend! He’s been working so hard to get everything ready for this Saturday.

me and EmAwkward:
-Losing my breath when walking upstairs. I really think I need to start working out again.
-Trying to blow my nose discreetly in my office. There is no way to do that.

Awesome:
TODAY IS THE BIRTHDAY OF ONE OF MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE HUMAN BEINGS!!!!! Happy Birthday, my dear Emily!! You are a kind, supportive, understanding, funny, and fun-loving person. I live for our Target strolls, acting together, and eating delicious Thai. I hope today is lovely and magical and everything you dreamed it would be. =)
Is there anything more awesome than the birthday of someone you hold dear?

frog and toad

Awkward:
-Exhaustion. I feel like I can never catch up on my sleep. Yawning all the time is not all that professional, is it?
-Trying to hold in sniffles when others are around. I had two inward sneezes after they left. Those are the worst.

Awesome:
-“But we can open the box.” Toad is my spirit animal.
-Dinners with some sweet little ladies and some awesome friends!
-NAPS. I feel like I get a second chance to improve the day!

Awesome:

-This library display from Pike Library in Indianapolis!

-I’ve been drinking a ton of water lately! It’s funny how just changing my water intake can improve my mood and energy levels.

-Watching Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them twice over the weekend!
