Or it could have something to do with the twenty three-year-olds I chased after all day. And the one dramatic bloody nose that resulted in ending the day in chaos. I felt like I was breathing germs in and out all day long.
Despite feeling worn out, I managed to come home and do my new favorite Denise Austin Fit & Firm Pregnancy Workout. I have NEVER enjoyed any form of a workout routine. In high school I was always a runner, so running a few miles a day was my quick workout. I seemed to have developed some pretty bad lower back problems over the past year due to a past job, genetics, and simply living in this fallen body, so I've been ordered from doctors to no longer run. Sad day for me, as I said before, because I HATE workout routines. I've honestly exercised more during this pregnancy than I have since the last high school gym class I was forced to take. So it's really saying something when I say I truly enjoy these workouts, Denise Austin's encouraging voice, and feeling tired and stretched out afterwards. :) Also, I find that she uses VERY comfortable positions for working out all the different parts of your body that could probably very easily be carried over into post-baby workouts. I talked about my other pregnancy work outs that I enjoy in this post.
Now that my tummy is thoroughly filled and I'm wrapped up in several warm blankets in bed to fight off the painful cold chills, I am doing a bit of nursery decor hunting around on Etsy.
I've decided to go with a forestry theme, many neautrals and greens, so I can easily change it up for the next baby or a baby girl. I want to include some botanical prints like this one.
I am a butterfly collector, as in I collect dead butterflies in glass frames. haha Sounds a bit morbid, but I think they are beautiful!! I really love any framed bug. I think I got my love of these from my love of James and the Giant Peach as a kid. Needless to say, I also love this vintage butterfly print.
A gorgeous beetle print.
Maybe a collection of specimen jars and feathers like these.
A cute fox print baby blanket.
I'm also going to incorporate forest animals, like owls, foxes, porcupines, and squirrels. Oh my goodness, I really do have so many ideas in my head! I guess I better start picking and choosing as I'm about to head into my third and final trimester with this boy! I just want two things for this baby room: lots of things that I can change up and use again (which is why I'm using neutrals) and I don't want it to look too, too babyish (meaning no mint green or baby blue).
Keep your eye out on some fun things you think I could use in the baby room! :)
