Thoughts for Thursday

I'm struggling to get a post completely written.  They're all floating around in my head but no luck putting together something cohesive.  Some thoughts for this Thursday.
  1. The weather is so weird, we went from tornadoes to 70s/80s and now mid-80's, Thunderstorms and the possibility of more tornadoes.  Thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Alabama that was hit by the most recent storms.
  2. I started too many sewing projects.  I was almost done the baby's quilt and decided to make some other blankets/burp cloths (that I was hoping to giveaway a set on the blog too) and now there is fabric and everything everywhere.  I need to learn to finish a project before I start a new one.  Hopefully I'll finish the baby's quilt tonight and then move on to the rest of the projects.  Oh and I have like 5 other projects that I want to start.
  3. My t-shirts are no longer fitting over this ole baby bump.  It's starting to get annoying and unfortunately hubby's shirts are the same size as mine, so no luck there.  With a little more than 6 weeks to go, that's kinda scary.
  4. I'm struggling with gift giving ideas. 
    • Our 2nd anniversary is a little more than 2 weeks away and I don't know what to get hubs.  Last year we went on a trip but I don't really think that's feasible this year with the baby due a few weeks after.  Any suggestions (they say 2nd year is cotton)?  
    • I also don't know what to get our mom's for mother's day this year either.  Last year we got them Vera Bradley hanging organizer's.  I don't know this year.  Any suggestions?  It's creeping up quickly.
  5. I really want to see the proofs from our pictures that we took last week.  She said 2 weeks, but I'm hoping maybe she's done early.  
  6. I'm getting a blog redesign (and it's not done by me or a premade from somewhere - though I do like the one I've got going on now from How Joyful Design Studios)!  Yeah!  I'm really excited about this.
  7. We're halfway through our Childbirth and Childcare classes and we toured the facility this week.  I couldn't be happier with where we will be and I feel super lucky that I didn't have to do lots of looking at facilities and this is where my Dr.'s delivered. 
  8. I'm hungry, like all the time.  Like right now, I just finished my lunch and I would say I'm still kind of hungry.  This is really kind of annoying.
  9. I've been worried that all/most of my posts are maternity/baby related, but at this point, I think that's going to be the norm, so I hope you'll still stick around.
  10. I've got a little over 4 weeks left at work and I am so looking forward to that.  I am starting to train my back-up now.  As of today I'm really hoping that baby holds out until at least his due date so I can maximize my leave!  (I'm sure I might change my mind in a few weeks, ha ha)
How's your Thursday going?  Anyone got any big plans for the weekend?


  1. I was struggling with our second anniversary gift too... especially since this year is so different and we're not even living together full time! But I ended up getting a pretty linen (my textile grad friend swears it counts as cotton) pillow that has a vintage post card on it - the post card is of the place we're spending the day and hub's home town.

    I got all kinds of suggestions like towels, nice sheets, bathrobe, boxers, monogrammed shirts, etc. It's hard!


Comments make me smile!

Have a wonderful day!
