Monday Moments

Hey, everyone! I can't believe that it's almost August. Weren't we just in January? Tomorrow is also my birthday. I've been thinking about it for awhile, but I still have no idea how I'm going to spend it. I know that it's my last birthday without a baby so I should make the most of it, but I'm not really sure how to do that. So if you have any suggestions, please send them my way!

We went to a BBQ at my Dad's house on Sunday and talked about how we'd had so little rain recently, so of course, on Wednesday it poured. I actually woke up to the sound of it in the middle of the night and wasn't sure that I was hearing rain. Lately, whenever I wake up and hear the air conditioner my brain thinks that it's the sound of pouring rain, but then I could hear the rain plinking in the fireplace and on the windows so I knew that it was really raining. Which also led me to remember where we'd put our mixing bowl. It had been lost for a few weeks and the sound of the rain reminded me that we'd actually put it in the furnace closet to catch leaks!

On Wednesday night I was really craving some Mcdonald's french fries so we went and picked some up and took them to a park and sat by the river. Brian, of course, tried to feed them to the fish and pulled bark off the stump that we were sitting on. That first picture of the two of us is Brian trying to watch his piece of French Fry float by while I tried to get him to take a picture with me.

Friday night we went to a movie in the park by our house. Well, at least the plan was to go to the movie in the park. We brought our blanket and walked over, but when we found out what the movie was we decided not to stay and watch it. Instead, we got Brazilian food from a food truck and ate it on the grass. Then after awhile, we walked home!

I think Poppy is finally starting to pop out a bit! It's hard to tell in this picture, but there's definitely a little bump there that doesn't seem to be going anywhere!

Goals this week:

-Make new goals for my birthday
-Do a birthday photoshoot on my birthday
-Watch less Netflix, go out and do more
-Make a birthday cake/treat
-Keep walking every day
-Stretch/do yoga
-Read some new books
-Send out some Happy Mail

A few random things:

-I've been craving muddy buddies for weeks
-I don't even really like Shrimp but now that I'm not allowed to have it, I really want it all the time.

Currently Reading:

Troubling a Star by Madeleine L'Engle

Something to take away:

"Keep calm and be crazy, laugh, love and live it up because this is the oldest you've been and the youngest you'll ever be again."


Thanks for reading! I hope you all have a fantastic week!
