7 Quick Takes

1. Here's a Baby Bump picture for you.  I'm terrible at taking self-portraits, even with a nice camera and a timer.  Catherine is eager to take pictures for me, I'm just scared to let her hold the good camera.  This is me at 29 weeks:

2. The above orange & charcoal shirt is one of my absolute favorite shirts right now.  It's soft.  It's stretchy.  It's long.  It's cute.  It's cheap.  (You can get it at Wal-Mart. Not an affiliate link.)

3. This ecard made me laugh out loud.  I don't really dislike the term "expecting" however, this card makes a very valid point.

4. On Wednesday I asked my readers how to wash secondhand yarn, and I got lots of practical solutions and advice!  (Here's that post.)  Thank you!

5. The Olympics are almost here!  The Olympics are almost here!  The Olympics are almost here! (Can you tell that I'm excited?)  What are your favorite winter sports?
6. Do you like to enter giveaways?  If you do be sure to check out this $25 Barnes & Nobles Giveaway, it's a flash giveaway that ends Sunday (1/12/14). This Boba 4G Baby Carrier Giveaway (ending 1/27/14) is also a great giveaway!

7. I am trying to be pretty good about my sugar intake this pregnancy.  I will admit during Christmastime I splurged a bit.  Things like these Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake Bars really tempt me though!  (Maybe they aren't so bad for me, since cinnamon naturally lowers the blood glucose levels . . . )  Yes, I shared these on Facebook yesterday, but I'm still thinking about them!

  1. love this little round up and i am so heading over to enter for the Barnes and noble giveaway that is speaking my language books

  2. My father-in-law is reeeally uncomfortable with the word "pregnant." I have no idea why. He usually says "PG." As in, "Well, she won't be riding a horse in July, because she's PG." Ugh. I hate that. But! Because I know he's so uncomfortable with it, I'm trying to get him to say "expecting" instead. It's a step in the right direction, right? =)

  3. Thanks for sharing this round-up. That meme is hilarious!

  4. I love the term expecting, it holds so many emotions and plans and to do lists in one little word. Everyone knows what it means. Plus, if one is expecting a dinosaur either they are nuts or soon to be famous! Nice self portrait by the way!

  5. Great selfie! I only have 1 from my last pregnancy but wish i had more. That was just about 15 years ago and we didn't do such things :) Love the list.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love reading each and every one!
