1) Annie's products. I finally discovered the goodness that is Annie's! First the mac 'n cheese, then the cheddar bunnies (think: goldfish crackers). Annie's foods are delicious organic interpretations of yummy favorites. My gripe with mac 'n cheese and goldfish crackers has always been the processed ingredients, most of which are not easy to pronounce (that's how I determine the health of something--if I can't pronounce the ingredients, it typically goes back on the shelf!). Thankfully, Annie's stuff is made with the good stuff AND it's tasty. I'm addicted to the white cheddar mac 'n cheese and Cub loves the "Munnies! Munnies!" (cheddar bunnies)!
2) New sandals a la Target!
3) A clean house. My crazy nesting from last week has inspired me to keep our house clean. Not just picked up, but CLEAN. It's borderline obsessive at this point, and I know it. My two priorities right now are: 1) Family time and 2) Clean house. I'm still constantly dusting and vacuuming and scrubbing, every day. It's much less stressful to live in a fresh and clean house, even though it takes crazy work. I have the time to do it right now, so I'm doing it, knowing that when we go to the hospital, my mind will at least be at ease knowing the house is ready to go!!
4) Great doctor's appointment. We had a scare last weekend and I ended up at the hospital, getting fluids for dehydration. Everything's good now and I'm guzzling water constantly. I'm dilated to a 1 and am 70% effaced. I am technically 37 weeks, while Naomi is measuring 38 weeks. I feel great, which makes me think it will still be a while before she comes. And that's fine by me. There are times where I feel "ready", or other times where I worry she will come too soon. But I take comfort in Psalm 139:16:
"Your eyes have seen my unformed substance,
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me ..."
I am constantly reminded that while I'm sitting here awaiting the day Naomi takes her first breath, God has already seen and knows the span of her entire life.
5) Summer. I'm so excited that it's almost officially summer. Bring on the BBQs and hot, sunny days.
Have a lovely weekend, friends!
