Pittsburgh Weather

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!

Seven Snapshots of My Life Lately

1. Snow. Pittsburgh has been hit with bits of snow here and there this month and it’s absolutely stunning.

2. Bible and coffee time. Spending time in God’s word is truly the best part of my day.

3. This. I read this quote from a devotional I’m doing in the YouVersion Bible App and it rang so true.

4. Catfinated mug. My father-in-law’s girlfriend gave me this mug and I love it!

5. Malcolm. He has random times during the day where he’s super snuggly and he lets me hold him like a baby. It’s the best.

6. My dad and Malcolm. They’re like two peas in a pod when my dad visits!

7. Cake. Still practicing cakes for Hannah’s bridal shower! This was a vanilla cake with strawberry filling. After I took this picture I frosted it with buttercream. ‘Twas delicious 🙂

What would a snapshot of your life lately look like?
