So the link up is live when it needs to be I am scheduling this early because I am not sure if or when this baby is ever going to come out. If I am still pregnant when this post goes live, oh man!

–I don’t really do anything with my brows. I mean, I tweeze a little to keep them neat but I don’t shape them or fill them in or have any products for them other than a tweezer. I feel like I am missing out on some life changing thing maybe? Mine are a little sparse maybe. What do you like to do with yours? Any must have products?

–There are some people who claim they love pregnancy and everything about it. There are other people who think it is the worst torture ever. Well I am here to tell you, it sure as hell isn’t glamorous. I never got that pregnancy glow that people talk about. I think its a load of crap. Glow from sweat or over production of oil from hormones maybe. My feet are so swollen they look like they belong to someone who weighs 500 pounds. And I now know what cankles would look like on me, and I am not a fan. But you know what? Up until this last month, it really wasn’t too terrible. I still think it is so special every time I feel her kick or her sweet little hiccups. I love seeing my belling move with her little rolling and dancing that she does in there. I think I will miss that. But the rest of it, nah!

–When I was unpacking my Christmas decor I thought…I want all new stuff!!! Don’t get me wrong, I love our Christmas tree, ornaments and all of our Snoopy items and wouldn’tย change a thing about them. But I want new stuff to decorate the fireplace with. Pretty, sparkly things that match. Right now ours is a hodge podge of random stuff over the years and nothing really goes together except for our stocking holders and the garland. TJ Maxx is my favorite place to look at Christmas decor, they have the best stuff!

–You know that gorgeous nursery I shared last week? In order to clear the room, I put a lot of that stuff in our other spare room that is where my “office” is supposed to be. Except, it never really was an office and was already a storage room for the shit that didn’t have a home in our house. Now the whole room is basically a storage room. Every time I walk past that room I am like ughhhh I need to get in there and make that my space damnit! I just don’t know what to do with the stuff that is in there? The Frozen song comes to mind…

–I felt like such an adult when I registered all of our baby products so we could be alerted for recalls, sent out thank you cards for the presents we received, called to set up a primary care pediatrician and everything washed, put together or put away in plenty of time for baby girl’s arrival.

–I was listening to an audiobook from the library that I had to wait three months to get. You can only have the file for 14 days and when I got it, I still had 3 days left of listening on a book I had already started. I made it to part 8 of 10 and then Thanksgiving happened and I forgot about it for a day and when I opened it back up to listen…it expired.

Makes me so sad! I don’t want to wait three more months to find out what happened. UGH! Anyone read The Nest and want to summarize the ending for me?? Pretty please?!?!

    Well, FYI to you, you didn’t make it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, I never got that glow either — so rude. And ugh to the swelling. I never could get used to that — at least it was mild before she was born, so you could wear your flops. And bahahaaha at the Elf meme. FOR SURE.

  • Reply Teh Megan December 7, 2016 at 9:47 am

    See if the book is available for check out? I actually returned a book before I read it because it came too soon. I wasn’t pleased about having to wait again, but the challenge hasn’t started yet!

    Also, if we didn’t have a storage area under the stairs, I would totally have a closet packed full of storage stuff. When I didn’t have a closet, I totally had a storage room. That said, organizing my office into my office took a HUGE burden off my brain. YUGE.

    THE BABY IS HERE! ๐Ÿ™‚ Congratulations, Nadine!!

    I don’t do anything to my eyebrows either and I feel like I should but now I’m embarrassed that I’m 26 and don’t know what to do so I keep holding back from asking my hair stylist…. hahaha!
    All those memes are my life. And now you CAN sit at home with baby and watch Christmas movies! (Or maybe the back of your eyelids, lol.)

    i am growing my brows out right now so that one day i don’t have to do anything with them. i mean, i don’t do anything now, so… whatever.

    so, we had a ‘guest’ room and an ‘office’ neither of which were used for officing or guesting. so they just got filled with crap, and when we moved, i had to throw out or put all that crap in boxes, and now living in a basement we have 47 boxes full of crap hahaha. but anyway. i threw out AT LEAST 10 boxes worth of crap, so high five to me?

    I weirdly just stalked your insta selfies and yes, you will notice a difference when you do your brows. Get a pomade, not a pencil. I love the Tarte amazonian clay brow mousse (maybe because it comes with the brush!) Just head to a sephora or ulta and have them do it for you, you’ll see! BTW, my first outing as a baby, when I was 10 days old, which would have been November 30, was to the mall with my mom. So take baby and shop!

    well shit, completely forgot about the link up AGAIN even though you were so good and sent me the code #hostfail.

    don’t even talk to me about tweezing because i NEEDS me a tweezer every where i go. as in if i didn’t tweeze on the regular, i’d legit be Bert. not even kidding about that.

  • Reply kathy @ more coffee, less talky December 7, 2016 at 11:02 am

    i confess i also forgot to include my new blog url because it’s new and i’m old and old people always forget things ๐Ÿ™

  • Reply Rebecca Jo December 7, 2016 at 11:24 am

    HAHA – Baby made it before the post did ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Congrats! Cant wait to hear all about the day!!! & See lots of pics!!!

    … I’m the same way with Christmas stuff. I love my stuff & we are OVERLOADED in Disney stuff – but it would take way too much to start over. We’ll be Disney forever. The good thing? Disney is always putting out new stuff so I do get new pieces all the time… I just hate storing all the old pieces.

  • Reply Bri @ North Star Girl Lone Star World December 7, 2016 at 1:07 pm

    I don’t do anything with eyebrows either. I should probably figure that out & do stuff to them ha. Congrats on baby!!

  • Reply Jennifer Massey December 7, 2016 at 1:33 pm

    I don’t do much with my brows. I get them waxed every few weeks because I feel like they’re a bit too full. I used to use a clear mascara to hold them in place, but now that I’m getting a few gray hairs I use a tinted brow gel instead.

    I really enjoyed my pregnancy, for the most part. I had some killer contractions all throughout, and I ended up with so many false alarms that they eventually ended up inducing me the day before my due date. (They were worried that I would go into labor and not know the difference. My “fake” contractions were that bad.)

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders December 7, 2016 at 1:59 pm

    I know how you feel about wanting to get new stuff for Christmas! Our stockings and stuff are a random assortment too, but I refuse to get anything new until after we have a family because we’ll just have to get new stuff. That’s such a bummer about The Nest! I actually just finished reading it an audiobook, so let me know if you want me to give you the lowdown. Congrats again on baby making it here! She’s so precious!

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family December 7, 2016 at 3:47 pm

    Oh girl, I hope she’s here soon! I’m glad that pregnancy wasn’t too hard on you throughout the whole thing, but it sounds like this last month was definitely not easy. How exciting that you will meet her so soon!

  • Reply Allison Arnone December 7, 2016 at 5:14 pm

    I don’t really mess with my brows, either. Now that thick/full brows are in, I don’t fuss too much aside from tweezing stray hairs and filling in some thin spots with a pencil, but I see some women out there doing major WERK on theirs. Pass.

    I also feel the same way about my Christmas stuff – next year I need a revamp!

  • Reply Lindsay December 7, 2016 at 8:32 pm

    Well you didn’t make it! Ha! Can’t wait to see more pics of your sweet girl! Um, my brows are sparse, too. I’m currently using a couple of MAC products that I really love, but, I still need help. I read several reviews that said to use castor oil to help your brows and lashes grow so I bought some… and then read an article that said it actually makes them fall out! So now I’m terrified. Going to talk to my dermatologist about it! *more than you asked for or needed to know but there it is. Hope you’re recovering well and enjoying your beautiful little lady!

  • Reply Amy Getz December 8, 2016 at 7:13 am

    OMG! Baby update! I’ve been wondering how you’re doing since I didn’t see you post on Monday! I mean, I know you have other things going on and all but show us the BABY!!!! LOL! Hope all went well and you’re doing great! Take care girl!

  • Reply Robin December 8, 2016 at 8:05 am

    I have my eyebrows waxed about once every two years, then I just maintain that shape. I pluck out obvious hairs or carefully shave small patches. Mine are also a bit sparse, so I lightly shade them in with a brow pencil.

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth - Meet at the Barre December 8, 2016 at 9:23 am

    I never do anything with my brows and now they have come out with “microblading” aka tattoos for your brows and I’m all over here like wait I don’t even fill mine. So glad baby girl is here safe and sound!

  • Reply Carly December 8, 2016 at 12:18 pm

    I love how honest you arewere about being pregnant! I’ve been trying to grow my brows for the past 2 years and I just don’t think it’s ever going to happen, haha. Too much over-tweezing when I was younger I’m sure! I always have that issue with my library books– I don’t know why I procrastinate to start books- especially when I’ve waited forever. If it makes you feel any better, I remember the ending of The Nest being kind of anti-climatic!

  • Reply Kaitlyn December 8, 2016 at 1:03 pm

    I hate when the spare bedroom turns into a junk room! There should be junk room experts who come in a and help you get rid of things. Oh wait, I already have one, my mom! Haha, when we were moving our things from our last place, into the storage unit, my mom was there trying to put things to the side that we needed to get rid of. Turns out I’m way more attached to things than I thought. It’s so hard to part with things when you’re there looking at them, but if they were to disappear overnight, I don’t feel like I would notice. Are you missing pregnancy yet?? So happy for y’all! Looking forward to a post baby update!

  • Reply Cara December 8, 2016 at 1:31 pm

    The office room you described is pretty much my whole basement right now. It’s a disaster and I plan to tackle it over Christmas break. Fingers crossed it actually happens lol. And congrats on the baby she’s precious as can be!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis December 11, 2016 at 6:32 pm

    You’re lucky your eyebrows don’t need much maintenance and I would keep it that way. Pencil thin eyebrows are not a good look!
