Sleep Deprivation

The other night, the hubs and I were at the mall on a date and the woman in front of us on the elevator announced, “Don’t ever expect to sleep ever again”. I kind of laughed at this and told her, “Oh, this is our third, so we haven’t been sleeping for a while now”. She was astounded, since she only has one daughter and wanted to know how it was possible to have more than one kid as her toddler hadn’t been sleeping lately and she didn’t think she could have an infant right now. To be honest, I don’t think I’m really ready for the night interruptions again, but at some point, it’s just craziness and you buckle down and deal with it. Because like everyone says, it’s all over before you know it. I am REALLY praying this kiddo is a good sleeper though because I DO NOT do well with no sleep. Feel free to send up some prayers on my behalf. 🙂

How To Set Your Wardrobe Up For Constant Success


1. Clean it out.

Go through your clothes one by one. Make sure to take each one out and try it on. If it is too big or too small or has a weird cut and doesn’t fit “just right”, put it in a giveaway pile. If it’s something that you haven’t worn in over a year, put it in a giveaway pile.

This will help make it clearer to look through when putting an outfit together. If there are pieces that you’re not sure of, put in a “save for later” pile and revisit in a couple months. If you didn’t think about them or don’t miss them, then they’re not worth saving. (Continue reading over at…)

Pregnant And Dumb





(Shirt: Plato’s Closet  Skirt: GAP  Shoes: HandMeDown)

I know it’s a thing to lose some concentration when you’re pregnant, but let me tell you, in this case, the third time is NOT the charm. I swear that with this pregnancy I am ridiculously dumb. I am normally the kind of person who never forgets anything and lately I can not seem to get anything right. Here are two examples:

1. I had a coupon for a chicken entree for only $2.14, so my husband and I headed to Pei Wei for a delicious lunch. When we got there, I showed said coupon to the employee. She looked at me confused and mentioned that she had never seen this coupon. Upon further inspection, she announced, “Oh, this is for Pick Up Stix.” Duh. In my defense, they both start with a “P” and both sell Chinese food. (Disclaimer: My husband would like you all to know that this is something I would do even if I wasn’t pregnant.)

2. We were at Goodwill and halfway through shopping, my three-year-old announces that he has to pee. As much as I love this store, it is completely lacking in restrooms. So, I take my son out to our car to pee, throwing my purse and keys in the front seat while he goes. We go back inside to buy our items and on the way out, I can not find my keys. I start to panic that I didn’t pick them up from the car because I KNOW that I locked the door. When we get to the car, I look in and see my keys sitting there. I am about to call my husband to come rescue us, when I just happen to check the door. And what do you know, it was unlocked. Yup, unlocked with the keys just sitting there. Parked on the corner of a busy intersection. I am so thankful no one else noticed.

Yeah, let’s hope all my intellect comes back in the next five months ’cause boy I sure do miss it.
