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!

Ending the Sick Daze and Cake Baking

Hey! Well, Jimmy and I are finally starting to feel better since our sick daze last week. Yay! I ended up at the doctor earlier this week and was diagnosed with a sinus infection.

I had a feeling that would be the case, as similar to last time I had a sinus infection, my teeth hurt every time I did anything that would shake my body or head (apparently, your sinuses can press on your oral cavity if they’re swollen…lol). Thankfully, I was able to get some antibiotics and am on the mend.

Jimmy and I were talking about how thankful we are that we live in a country where we can simply go to the doctor and get medicine. From the time I went to the doctor to when I was taking my first dose of antibiotics was only a few hours. What a blessing.

I’ve been spending the week working (pet sitting and real estate work/photography) and wedding cake baking! Surprisingly, I don’t have a lot of pictures from the week. I have one from pet sitting and one from Starbucks.

It turns out Starbucks has pretty tasty smoothies! The one I had was chocolate and banana flavored.

While I didn’t take a lot of pictures, I did film two vlogs. In one week! Crazy.

The first one was completely random. I was a total sick zombie and had awkward encounters with the people who replaced our gutters. I’m so glad we had our gutters and fascia replaced! It makes such a difference in the look of our house 🙂

I filmed the wedding cake baking vlog on Thursday, and was starting to feel better and less zombie-ish. I’m getting nervous for the big baking day!

Well, I’m going to get going. I have a busy weekend ahead! I’m excited for Saturday because I’m going to a ladies lunch at our church. It’s always such a fun time of fellowship and great food.

What are you doing this weekend?
