If you were to come over this morning for a cup of coffee…
… I would tell you how frustrating this house process has been. I have realized that we have no idea what we want. We go back and forth on a few things and we never come to a decision. We debate living somewhere close to my family… because of the convenience while they are young… however, that area does not have older homes that we have had our heart set on. So it’s all very back and forth.
… Sometimes I think it might be nice while the kids are little to not have projects going on. But then I think… I will miss it and it has been fun to involve Maddux… (and someday Hudson) on those projects. So I am not sure what I want.
… I think the problem is there hasn’t been anything we have fallen in love with. So that’s the main problem. We find a few things that would work in some areas but missing in others.
… I promised myself I wouldn’t get stressed throughout this process. I wouldn’t rush and settle on a house when the time came. So I am trying to keep that promise to myself and it has been hard. So we will see.
… So also all of this has been causing a delay on the blog. This blog has been primarily centered around our house projects… and now everything is at a standstill. But with moving we have a few furniture pieces we need to build so I think we will start sharing those. Because no matter where we move… I have a specific dining room table I am wanting once we move. And a new entertainment center. So I am hoping to get those things completed before everything else comes together.
.. So that is my update… on everything going on around here. Meanwhile that is all going on and we are waiting on the buyers to sell their home. Which I am trying to get us some good karma by allowing them time… but that also has been a little… rough. But it will all fall together right??? Right???
… I would share with you that my husband and I have gone back to being vegetarian this past week. I wasnt sure how hard it would be this time around… but turns out… it’s so much easier than I thought. I am hoping this lifestyle change will help me get back to my normal size… and lose the final 10 lbs of baby weight that seems to be sticking around. It’s always that last 10 lbs right? I am trying so hard to give up my coffee creamer. Do you know a healthy switch for this? I’m struggling. I havent liked the almond milk creamer or those that I can find in the grocery store…
… I would tell you that my brother-in-law just had his first baby this week. I am so excited for them… and for my husband. There’s something about watching your sibling enter this next chapter of their lives. It’s hard to explain… but if you have been there… you understand what I am saying. But she’s beautiful and they are going to be great parents. That baby girl is extremely lucky already :)
… I would tell you that Hudson is getting so big. I can’t believe how fast this is all going the second time around. He recently started eating table food and he is ridiculously stubborn and refuses to eat baby food. The kid is obsessed with feeding himself and every day he grows a bit more independent and every day… its bittersweet. We love seeing our kids develop… however with the last baby… it’s just… you know how precious this first year is and I can see it disappearing before my eyes.
… I would tell you that Maddux came home upset that a boy at school called him stupid because he said when he grows up he wants to marry his mom. Maddux is such a momma’s boy and is just the sweetest most caring kid on this planet. I think I might only have a few more months of him wanting to marry me and I will be so upset when that goes away. I asked him if he was upset about the kid who called him stupid and he said no…. his mom is just not as beautiful as you. This kid melts my heart.
… I would tell you that I have been binge watching One Tree Hill. I can’t remember if I ever watched the full show before. But right now I am hanging on by a thread to see if Clay comes back to Quinn. Anyone else binge watch tv shows? I forgot how much I love Brooke Davis. Honestly. I love her.
… I would tell you that I am currently obsessed with Brussel sprouts. Do you ever become obsessed with one food item? and eat it constantly… eventually the obsession ends and you move onto something else. But right now. Brussel Sprouts. Nothing crazy… no bacon or the way other people seem to love them. I like them thrown in a pan with coconut oil/salt/pepper. It’s amazing. Try it.
… Then it would be time to go about our days… and say good-bye until next week’s cup of coffee…
