Loving – the photos my mom sends me of Jude when he is at her house. This weekend when she watched him he sat in this little chair that used to be mine as a kid. I just love it!

Finished reading – another book! This time I read One Plus One by Jojo Moyes and I thought it was pretty cute! Again, another easy read, but sometimes those are the best. I also finally broke down and bought The Magic of Tidying Up. I just started it but I’m loving it so far! I asked BTR if he would read it and he even said maybe…

Annoyed – with myself. Quite a while ago I broke one of the crisper shelves in our fridge because I put too much in it. Well I finally got around to looking at replacement bins and they cost $50!! For a plastic bin! Guess I’ll put it on my Christmas list along with a new shower head. I like practical gifts, most of the time.

Click over – to Julia’s day in the life round up! You’ve probably already read my post, but it’s so fun seeing what other bloggers do in their daily routines! Thanks so much for organizing it again Julia!

Wearing – maternity pants! I don’t even think I bought maternity jeans until late November last time, so I’m definitely indulging much earlier in the pregnancy this time. But they are so comfy so I don’t care at all.

Squeezing – my stress ball a little harder than normal. Yesterday we found out two of our business credit cards were stolen and someone tried charging $20,000 (yes that is the correct number of zeros) to one of them. Luckily our credit card companies were amazing and are already taking care of it and sending us new cards, but this is not a fun thing to deal with at all.

Eating – the yummiest chicken and pasta dish! We did a little freezer meal workshop at MOPS yesterday and instead of freezing it I decided just to make it for dinner. It was super easy and even BTR and Jude liked it!

Happy Wednesday friends! I have my monthly doctor appointment later today (I’m already almost 15 weeks!) and I just can’t wait to hear the heart beat on the doppler! About another month and we get to find out the gender!

    Oh no! So sorry about the credit card theft. People just suck sometimes. I mean seriously! I agree that maternity pants can be awesome. By the end of both my pregnancies I was so over them though. Ha ha! I loved yoga pants too. :) Have a great day!

    • Well I’m pretty much always in yoga pants, so I’m considering my maternity jeans “real pants” haha!

  • That chicken pasta looks amazing! I did a wild tree freezer meal workshop before and they are yummy meals! Boo to the stress but yay for comfy maternity pants — nothing wrong with comfy!!! And yay for grandma babysitting!! always a good time!

    • This was a Wild Tree meal and I really liked it! I might consider going to one of the freezer meal workshops in the future to stock up on stuff!

  • Ouch – good thing your CC guys caught it! That chicken looks amazing, I have a whole chicken in the fridge I need to do something with, but I’m lacking motivation today.

    • Hopefully you found a way to cook your chicken! I’m the worst at forgetting things in the fridge and then they aren’t edible!

  • Ugh, I feel your pain. My purse was stolen months ago and having to deal with replacing cards and the stress of a theft is awful. Glad its taken care of! That saying the second pregnancy shows faster is true, isnt it?! Not that its a bad thing its just different. My husband has a chair from his childhood that thr girls now use, its the sweetest thing!

    • It’s been such a mess, especially since no one stole anything so we don’t know how it happened! Luckily our credit card companies are easy to work with! Yes the second pregnancy is so different, I cant explain it!

    How adorable is Jude in your chair?!
    I keep hearing of these books by Jojo Moyes, and the Tidying up book. Looks like I need to step up my reading game!

    • I loved the Jojo Moyes book, I want to read another one of hers! And I totally need to read the Tidying Up book, and hopefully I can actually implement it!

    Mmm…that pasta looks awesome. And 20,000???!!!! Yikes!! So glad the credit card company’s on that. Ugh. And I can’t wait for you guys to find out the baby’s sex! What’s your guess?

    • I have NO ideas on this baby. Sometimes I feel the same as when I was pregnant with Jude and other times it’s totally different! Of course I still want tacos and margaritas, but that’s pretty much pregnant or not pregnant…. :)
