A Few Things Friday

Oh hiiii! I’m still here! And it’s Friday, so lesdoit.

  1. Totally have reached the point where when I call or text people they think it’s baby time. I actually thought it might happen yesterday, but turns out when you go into labor you KNOW. I have this weird fear that I’m going to “miss” it? And like… birth a baby in the tub with the dogs staring me and Brandon just shaking in a corner wondering where life went wrong. Is this normal? Don’t answer that.National Dog Day
  2. So if you have instagram or facebook or eyes, you probably know it was #NationalDogDay this week. (Oh and here’s something funny – when I went to post my pupper photos, I realized at the last second that I wrote “NationalDONGDay” (sorry, mom) and fixed it, thank God. I’m sure I would have picked up some lovely new followers, though.) Anyways, while I’m sure 99% of the population found it super annoying, I loved it so much. I don’t know why, but I’m always so obsessed with seeing people’s pets. I feel like it says so much about a person, what breed they have, their names, all that fun stuff. I hope I love my kid as much as I love my dogs. (Kidding!! kind of.)
  3. I just finished reading Landline, by Rainbow Rowell. I waited a while to read this one because I went through a super bingy Rainbow Rowell frenzy and read like 4 of her books after I fell in love with Eleanor & Park about a year ago. Then I realized we needed a break, and I just got around to this one. I definitely enjoyed it, but I have to say it wasn’t my favorite. Why is it that I just love young adult books? I’m eternally 11, I think. I also just started reading Dark Places, by Gillian Flynn and I’m thinking I might like this one. I heard it’s good to have a couple books on standby when your new babe comes, especially for all those fun late-night feedings. Any suggestions for me? I’ve also thought maybe now is the time to listen to that podcast, “Serial”, that everyone was hyping a few months ago.
  4. I’m struggling on TV these days, I feel like I’m just in a waiting period for all my favorite shows to come back. I think I’m still most excited for the Affair and the Leftovers. I actually bailed on True Detective with about 3 episodes left. I just couldn’t do it. I feel like I owe it to pop culture to finish it out, but I seriously just caaaan’t. Like how can you take such a beautiful show and just ruin it? Or such a beautiful actress?! For real, if you take Rachel McAdams and make her not the most attractive¬†person on earth, you’re doing it wrong. Mostly I’m just watching Big Brother, Housewives and Bachelor in Paradise. So all reality trash. Sorry, brain.
  5. This weekend I think I’m going to go buy ALL the September issues of fashion magazines and drown myself in clothing I can’t afford and hair and makeup I can’t pull off. This is my favorite time of year, when summer winds down and I can start dreaming about cooler weather and all the wonderfulness that comes along with it. I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to summer, but I have to admit when I walked out the door to go to work this morning, I breathed in the air and felt a little like throwing my arms up Maria Von Trapp style and swirling around. Then I hit construction and sat at a red light for 20 minutes and returned to my curmudgeony self.

Have the happiest of weekends, my friends! xoxo
