Exhausted & daydreaming

I believe it's somewhere between 8 and 11 degrees outside, which is why I'm inside with a PB&J, and a creamy tea latte that B made.

I've been showing B some of the stuff I'm learning about photo editing through online tutorials.

I'm pretty exhausted after several nights of not sleeping due to a growing belly. I'm not at all a side sleeper, so not being able to sleep on my back is so uncomfortable, to the point that I've just ben laying awake all night with an upset stomach and an aching tummy. Blah.

Anyways, enough of that prego-talk. I've mustered enough energy to do my two favorite things around the house: laundry and cooking. Yes, laundry truly is one of my favorite things to do. And since its so cold out, I think this weather calls for many blankets, bowls of chicken noodle soup, and grilled cheese for the rest of the day, so I'm slowly preparing some homemade soup.

Meanwhile, all the icicles, single digits, and frozen over car windows have caused me to daydream about summer time. One, because I'll have met this little baby boy who is in my womb by then and will be able to cuddle him. And two, I can sit on my porch in a summer dress and my favorite summer shoes!

I am a HUGE lover of clogs. Clogs for all seasons: summer, fall, spring, and winter. I bought these J-41 Jasper clogs two summers ago to take with me on our honeymoon. I wanted something that I could wear casually with shorts at the beach, or dress up with a sundress. I'm not sure I will ever be converted back to flipflops. I wear these all summer long. They make you feel pretty when you're in the garden pulling weeds and half covered in dirt. ;)

These are some sweet Moheda boots. They makes lots of adorable clogs for all seasons. These seem to be their boot version for the winter. There is a giveaway going on over at Tales of a Young Mama, so maybe I could score these to make it through the rest of this ridiculous winter. ;)
I hope everyone out there reading is staying warm! :)


  1. for your sleeping issue, try snuggling a pillow between your arms and legs, with your tummy kind of resting on it, hopefully that will give you some relief.

  2. Thank you!! Some very sweet person dropped a Boppy body pillow off on our porch today. I've been so uncomfortable that B was going to head out and grab a few ingredients that I needed for dinner, and when he opened the door there it was!! :)
