Happy What's Hap-"Pinning" Wednesday, friends! 
Reading ...
Tell the Wolves I'm Home. So far it's ok. I'm only about 25% of the way through and the story JUST seems to be picking up. At least, I hope that it does.
Watching ...
The second season of Fuller House (still cute and funny--I'm a little mad that it was put on "The worst tv of 2016" list), Vanderpump Rules (is it me or does anyone else feel like this season is kind of blah?), RHOBH...the standard Bravo fare :)
Pretty much all of the Fall tv is on hiatus right now...

trying to add in more veggies to my diet. I realized that our dinners were lacking in that department recently (with the exception of black beans), so every meal this week has an extra helping of veggies! Buffalo chicken zucchini boats, roasted veggie enchilada bake, broccoli cheddar soup, and sun-dried tomato feta meatloaf (with a side of artichokes and veggies)! #veggieme
Roasted Veggie Enchilada Bake
Looking forward to ... 
Our San Diego trip next week! It will be nice to escape the frigid temps spreading across the country and get into some mid to upper 60's for a bit!

that getting things fixed in/on/around your house didn't cost so darn much!
Enjoying ...
that in 2 more days, I'll be off of work for 2 weeks and a day (I dont know why they gave us the extra day, but I'm not going to complain)!
lots and lots of water! I forgot my Swell bottle knock-off at home yesterday, but luckily I had a regular water bottle to drink from during the day. Still trying to keep to at least 80-90 ounces a day...and still not sure how that one nurse expected me to get in 130 ounces!

that I've been starting to feel baby's movements a bit the last week. It's only usually when I'm really still, and just kind of sitting or lounging, but they're definitely there! Little nugget is particularly active after dinner time! :)

Wanting ... 
maternity pants to be more inexpensive. Thankfully with all of the holiday sales, some have been slightly more reasonable, but sheesh! $80 for a pair of pants I'm going to wear for a few months? A little absurd. The baby market is definitely similar to the wedding market #markups
And it would also be nice if Old Navy's shipping could work a little faster than frozen molasses. 

Wearing ...
layers and layers and layers because it is getting COLD out and about to get colder. We're already getting warnings about Friday's weather being below freezing and windy. So, like I said, San Diego is going to be a welcome change!

Grateful For...
the report of a healthy baby at our ultrasound/anatomy scan on Friday. Plus, I just love the ultrasounds because it gives me a chance to see our baby wiggling around in there which is just super surreal, but also incredible. I'm SO thankful and grateful for this experience.
Now it's your turn to link up with Jessi and I to share what's hap-"pinning" with you guys!


  1. I definitely realized my meals were slacking in the veggie department, too - trying to work on that!!

  2. I totally forgot about your SD trip next week - that is going to be so much fun!! Love that you are feeling the little babe moving around - that must be amazing!! I'm actually liking RHOBH this season (well the first 2 episodes so far LOL) xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. Enjoy that trip so much! And I'm with you, I have no clue why maternity clothes are so ridiculously expensive.

  4. Seeing the baby is the most amazing thing and it just gives you a piece of mind everything is ok. I go today to see our sweet baby

  5. EEK! San Diego is going to be so much fun and yay for warmer temperatures! How did I not realize that Fuller House season 2 was already out? I know what I'm doing this weekend! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  6. Have an amazing trip and enjoy those warmer temps! I haven't started the second season of Fuller House, as cheesy as it is I love it! As for maternity pants, don't keep wasting your money on new pairs. Stock up on leggings to wear under flowy dresses or tunics and get a belly band that'll fit over your regular pants. I'm happy to report I only purchased 1 maternity item throughout my whole pregnancy with those hacks ;-)

  7. Aw, ultrasounds are the best! So fun that you're starting to feel movements, that was my favorite! Not sure why maternity clothes are so darn expensive - it sucks! I used a belly band a lot, that saved me big time. I'm SO excited RHBOH is back on - I totally don't like the new girl so far... but we'll see.

  8. Your trip is SO soon!!! And I agree about the veggies-- it's so hard to eat a "balanced diet"; but I am making your lasagna soup tonight-- so I'm looking forward to tomatoes (and cheese) in excess! :)

  9. I'm excited to catch up on the new season of Fuller House over the week between Christmas and New Years! Yes, its cheesy, but its also adorable!

    I hope you have a wonderful time in San Diego and that the weather is gorgeous!

    Yay for healthy babies!

  10. Aw that frame/photo is adorable!! I'm super pumped to be on Christmas break in t-minus 4 hours. :)

  11. Ok...so I obviously commented on the wrong post..lol. :)

  12. eek so exciting about your trip! and seriously i had to go shopping yesterday bc i had no veg in the house and i needed it! have to stop eating garbage ha. not that you are. you get it haha. yay for healthy baby and starting to feel movement!

    xoxo cheshire kat

  13. Yay for fun trips especially ones that get you out of the cold weather! I need one of those! Happy Wednesday!

  14. Have fun in San Diego! I've always wanted to go there.

  15. I tried so hard to get into Fuller House and I just couldn't do it.

  16. Have the best time on your babymoon! The next time you travel you'll be toting a little bambino with you! How exciting!

  17. I liked Tell the Wolves I'm Home but it wasn't an easy read by far.

  18. Maternity clothing prices are ridiculous!!! Just go up a pant size - it's cheaper and you'll also have some clothes for right after the baby when you don't quite fit into your old wardrobe yet.

  19. I hate how much maternity clothes are. Such a rip off. Ugh. I am so excited for you and your babymoon trip. You are going to have the best time.

  20. I'm having all veggies tonight inspired by your post today! I know I don't eat enough fruit or veggies so that's something I'm going to be more intentional about.

  21. I hope Tell the Wolves I'm Home gets better, because I'm curious about that one! I'm glad that your baby is doing well and is healthy!!

    I don't know how people drink so much water in a day. Maybe it's just me, but if I drank the amount I'm supposed to, I'd never leave the bathroom. haha


  22. Love that sweet profile of that babe! I can't wait to find out if its a BOY or GIRL!


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
