Hey friends! I know it probably seems like I have fallen off the face of the earth, but I’ve just been too busy living life to take the time to sit down at the computer! Kreig has a big race this weekend, which means that I am in the pits, locked in the middle of the track, for hours today through Sunday. It’s a fun weekend, but there’s tons of downtime. It’s actually kind of relaxing — call me crazy, but there’s nothing like a nap in my gravity chair while there are cars practicing on the track. (Let’s hope our baby has my sleeping abilities, right?) I figured since I’m just sitting here keeping myself occupied on my phone, why not throw up a little update?
I feel like a bit of a slacker this summer, but I do have a few projects that I just haven’t gotten around to organizing pictures for, and we are just starting cleaning up our basement so there are a few pretty exciting projects in the works down there… No budget to fully finish it at this point, but we figured why let the space be wasted in the meantime? Actually, while keeping myself occupied at the races today, I discovered that Rugs USA is having an 80% off sale this weekend, and though some of the markdowns are still too high for this tightwad, I did order this 7’10″ x 10’10″ brown and ivory chevron rug for only $96, minus 5% with the coupon code SAVE613085. I originally had the basement in mind, but now I’m thinking I want it in our living room so I can move our floral rug down to the basement… I’m kind of sick of it already, (shh don’t tell Kreig) but maybe it’s just because it feels sorry of spring/summery. Anyways, that sale might be worth checking out if you’re in the market for an area rug!
Back to my point, though– I have some projects coming, I just have to get up the motivation to sit down and write about them… I’m thinking once the school year starts and Kreig’s race season is over I will be blogging more regularly. For right now, though, I’m trying not to push myself with house projects. After all, I am making something 24/7.
Speaking of that, everything is going great so far, and I’ve felt like a million bucks for probably the past month! Most of July was pretty rough with morning (aka any time of day) sickness, tiredness and a general lack of motivation to do anything, but now I’m soaking in the second trimester awesomeness! In fact, I feel so good that sometimes I have moments where I almost forget that I’m pregnant… until i look down and see my little baby bump, that is. I felt like I’ve had a bump since before I even knew I was pregnant, but the past week I think I may actually look like I’m pregnant and not just a serious beer drinker! Woohoo!
I felt like the bump looked bigger in the mirror than in the picture, but here’s a picture that Kreig snapped of me a few days ago when he was convinced that my bump grew a ton overnight.
I am counting down the days til September 9th, when we find out the gender, so if you don’t hear from me before then I’ll definitely be back here that night with that announcement! I can’t wait to start shopping and planning… I have baby clothes and nursery decor swirling through my mind!
I have been feeling like it’s a boy… Anyone else have a feeling either way?
