Thinking…that I should really get up and go cook dinner. But that sounds like entirely too much work. And I’m really comfortable in this chair.
Feeling…excited about meeting Baby J! For the first 2/3 of my pregnancy, I was feeling so rough, that I admittedly struggled to get excited, but now that I’m feeling a bit better, I’m starting to get so excited to meet my daughter. Crazy excited. 48 days until my due date!
Watching…Stanley Cup hockey, of course. Go Hawks!
Excited…for our baby shower this weekend! I’m so excited to see my family and friends.
Missing…Upland Wheat. Margaritas. Gin and tonics. Basically, all the boozy things I like to drink when the weather is warm.
Wondering…what kind of parent I’ll be.
Working…on my second cookbook, mostly. I’m deep in the middle of recipe development and writing. When I get sick of that (or can’t stand on my feet to do another recipe), I’m also working on a few cookbook cover designs for my publisher, a few freelance writing gigs, and doing all kinds of stuff for our photography business (right now, it’s sorting through the 3000+ photos we took at a wedding this past weekend). I’m also trying to take a few minutes each day and work on some pre-written posts so Wholefully doesn’t go dark after Baby J is here.
Stressed…about the balance between the things I have to do before Baby J shows up (pack a hospital bag, get our will done, finish my cookbook) and all the things I want to do before she shows up (finish the nursery, make more freezer meals, deep clean the whole house). I feel like I’m running out of time.
Proud…of the collection of recipes I’ve done so far for my second cookbook. Like, really proud. I was proud of my first cookbook, but I think this newest set of recipes is out-of-this-world delicious (and healthy). It’s a really, really great picture of what it’s like on a daily basis in our kitchen.
Wanting…a million dollars to do landscaping and other outdoor projects on our property. We have so many ideas. And such a little budget. Baby steps, I suppose.
Wishing…I had remembered to put sunscreen on before I spent yesterday morning working in the garden. I forgot how powerful Mr. Sun can be!
Eating…cookbook leftovers, nut butter packets (the protein helps me from getting morning sickness on the go), sweet potato fries, green smoothies, yogurt bowls.
Drinking…flavored water, sun tea, and sometimes a virgin margarita (which just isn’t the same).
Loving…fresh flowers, my command center printables, tulips, this lens, open windows, baby kicks, hand-me-down baby clothes, sunshine, warm weather, my adorable pets (who make me laugh daily) and my hard-working, kind, loving and creative husband.
