More Sickness, Eggs, and Other Fun

Just when I thought we were all recovered from our recent sickness, I came down with a head cold over the weekend. Man! Who is ready for spring?! This cold and flu season has really gotten the best of us with Sadie’s ear infection, the stomach flu, and my cold.

I missed the baby shower I was supposed to go to on Saturday, but I still managed to get the funfetti cookies I baked delivered to the shower.

I missed out on church on Sunday, too. I had a fever on Saturday night, so I didn’t think it was a good idea to bring my germs into the church nursery the next day. I always miss being with our church family when we’re sick or away. Our time at church is like a refreshment from the world each week, if that makes sense. I’m really looking forward to feeling totally normal and being with our people later this week!

Speaking of cookies, I also made graham cracker chocolate chip cookies over the weekend. They were good–Jimmy even said they were blogworthy–but I think they need marshmallows. So, basically I want to make s’mores cookies. I’ll share the recipe if I pick up some marshmallows and try again soon!

Okay, onto the topic of eggs.

Farm fresh eggs

My sister-in-law’s future father-in-law (did that make sense?!) has a chicken coop and gives away the eggs. My SIL casually asked if Jimmy and I would want some and I think I scared her by how excited I got. Of course we want local eggs!

I had my first egg on an english muffin for lunch today and it was delish.

Other fun things of note:
-Sadie and I did a puzzle together at the library.
-Jimmy and I are slowly working on getting Sadie to sleep in her crib at night. This has been so helpful.
-On the nights we manage to get Sadie to sleep in her crib before we go to bed, Jimmy and I have been watching Hallmark movies together. We like to laugh about the plot and how cliche it is, but we’re enjoying our alone time so much!
-I just started reading this book and I’m enjoying it so far.
-Jimmy and I are going bowling with our church this weekend and I’m excited. I’m horrible at bowling, but it’s so fun!
-We dressed Sadie in a dinosaur suit over the weekend and we’re still cracking up at how cute/funny she was in it.

Now onto a few pictures to go along with the fun things of note!

Okay, this post officially feels all over the place! As usual. I feel like that’s a post in and of itself; I feel all over the place since having a baby. It’s amazing and wild and such a learning experience.

Speaking of babyhood, Sadie just woke up from a nap so I better finish this post! She turned five-months-old yesterday and I’m thinking of actually writing an update on her for once… yay or nay? I always enjoy reading them on other blogs, and I’m sure I’ll love looking back on it. Let me know what you think!

Are you excited for spring?

Do you like bowling?

Five Things

It’s currently snowing in Pittsburgh as I type this blog post. Man am I ready for a nice, long stretch of warm weather! We had a gorgeous, sunny day in the 70s (it may have even hit 80 degrees?!) on Saturday and it was lovely. Cannot wait for more of that.

Okay, enough about the weather. It’s time to share five random things from my life!

1. Farm fresh eggs.

My sister’s in-laws have chickens and Jimmy and I buy eggs off them from time to time and they’re so, so good. The difference between these eggs and the eggs I get from the grocery store is unreal. Have you ever had farm fresh eggs?

2. When work = photography.

I met up with my brother and sister-in-law last week to take photos of a house they’re listing (they’re both real estate agents for my family’s real estate agency) and couldn’t help but snap a few shots of them afterwards! While I love doing the marketing and social media for my family’s business, it’s always a treat to get out and use my camera.

3. The return of coffee.

I think coffee and I are back on good terms again (pregnancy made me averse to coffee for a bit)! I stopped by Dunkin’ Donuts over the weekend and ordered a decaf blueberry latte and it was amazing! Do you like Dunkin’ Donuts coffee? What do you order there?!

4. Pregnancy updates.

17 weeks pregnant baby bump

I think this is the first picture I’ve posted of my bump?! It was last week, when I was 17 weeks along.

I have to admit, I feel a little conflicted blogging about pregnancy because I know it can be such a sensitive topic. I don’t want to overshare, but I also want to document the journey here on the blog. What do you guys think? Any advice or thoughts?

Here’s a quick little update: I’m 18 weeks today. Jimmy and I both felt the baby move on Saturday night and it was the coolest thing ever! We find out baby’s gender in two weeks and are taking everyone’s votes on which gender they think he/she is. Let me know your guess in the comments! I have no feeling one way or the other, and Jimmy is getting boy vibes.

5. Vlogging.

I’m on a vlogging kick lately! A few of you said you liked seeing more of my daily life and being able to put a voice and personality to my face, so here’s another vlog. I filmed this one yesterday and it was just a basic Monday for me 🙂

Alright, I’m going to get going! I have a few projects I’ve been chipping away at lately for church and my family’s business, so I’m hoping to make a dent in those today.

Tell me something random from your life!
