Week 23

Another exciting week again!!! To start out with Week 23, I have got in serious planning mode when it comes to the nursery. I put some floor plans together, and finally got a design I think I like. :) I can’t decide on a theme though. Do I want stripes? What colors do I want? Modern or Classic? One thing about being pregnant is that you become so indecisive. It seems like once I really like one thing, I am sick of it the next moment! I really just want something that is neutral, simple, and yet still something unique.

I finally figured out what I crave the most… breakfast food! I love everything about it. I called my girlfriends late the other week, and asked to see if they wanted IHOP, and since then I have gotten pickup IHOP twice this past week!!! I love their chocolate chip pancakes, hash browns and eggs; I also dip the sausage, bacon, and ham in the syrup. It is truly delicious.


I officially caved and got my first pair of maternity jeans, and yes the kind with the elastic top. I have a pair from ASOS that have the side stretch, which I really like because I don’t feel as constricted, but I really like the new pair I got. They keep me all tucked in, and I don’t have to worry about if my belly is showing or not. I really like Citizens of Humanity jeans, and Pea in the Pod has a good line. It might be a little pricey, but I swear by Citizens. I loved Citizens before I got pregnant, and love them more even now. I highly recommend investing in a good pair of jeans, because you can wear them over and over and they still look just as good when you first bought them.

I also had my monthly doctor’s visit this week. They listened to the heartbeat, checked my belly size, and gave me a flu shot :( I hate anything with needles! Being pregnant you have to have to take a lot of tests, get a lot of shots, and give a lot of blood. I cringe at anything with a needle :/ The nurses all make fun of me cause I have to turn away, they all say.. “This is nothing compared to birth honey!” True!

On Sunday, as most of you know.. Denny called his shot, and won the race at Loudon! I know his tweet had a lot of stir behind it, but honestly I didn’t think anything of it. That’s one thing I love about Denny is when the going gets tough he bounces right back, and I knew he was just trying to uplift his team and fans with that tweet. I can’t tell you how impressed I have been with him these last couple weeks. I knew the race at Chicago was tough, and definitely a hard one to swallow, but I was so proud how he handled himself. Something is different about him this year than in previous years. His entire attitude is different than before, and I think there are a few factors that play into that.

While also at the race I did a giveaway for a Toyota breast cancer T-shirt that Mary Lou (Denny’s Mom) and I designed. I have been tweeting and facebooking to VOTE VOTE VOTE! The winner’s design will get printed and sold and the proceeds will go to the charity Carolina Breast Friends, so we really want ours to win! I want to do another special giveaway for those of you who read my pregnancy blog, so please vote and leave a comment saying you voted, and I will pick a winner randomly!



Thanks so much guys for reading, until next time!
