October came in and went out all fast like and it is time for another What’s New With You post with Kristen and Gretch. November is one of my favorite months of the year!!! The holiday season kicks off, Chris and I will celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, we have the Iron Bowl and I just love love love Black Friday even though I wont get to partake in the crazy this year in person. Annnnnnnd this November is extra special as we are getting VERY close to baby girls due date!!! She might surprise us and come a little early.

Reading: Miracle on 5th Avenue – This book is being released later this month and I just love a good Christmas love story!

Miracle on 5th Avenue (From Manhattan with Love, #3)

Listening: To Christmas music, duh!! I start it up November 1st every year because I love Thanksgiving and Christmas so much that I like to enhance both months with my favorite music to enjoy for as long as I can. Plus they say that baby girl hears all my music choices in the womb and will recognize them outside and I want her to love Christmas music too!

I am also listening to Little Earthquakes on audiobook on my commutes to and from work. So good! I plan to have this and Miracle on 5th Avenue finished up in time for the Show Us Your Books link up next Tuesday so check back to hear my thoughts.

Little Earthquakes

Watching: I am watching all of our normal shows of course, but I wanted to talk for a minute about a few new shows that stared this season that you should check out!


American Housewife – Hilarious!!! Just do yourself a favor and watch this one.

The Good Place – This one is super cute. It can be a little cheesy at times, but Chris and I find ourselves LOL’ing at least once an episode…usually much more.

Kevin Can Wait – This is one of those mindless comedies that you sometimes just need. Especially after an more intense show like SVU or the Chicago series. We have been enjoying it.

Pinning: Workout motivation and healthy recipes for after baby and this awesome Christmas photo list. I want to capture all the holiday magic to enjoy for years to come!

Excited: I am ready to finish up a few more things in the nursery and around the house this weekend! I have a pretty awesome burger date lined up with Laura and the Alabama vs LSU game is Saturday night, always a good one to watch.


Bumping: Right along! I am missing a 35 week picture, I need to get that because as of tomorrow I am “officially” 36 weeks. My due date is one month from yesterday!!! I seriously cannot believe how quickly this pregnancy has gone by! I mean, on one hand it feels like I have been pregnant forever because I have been pregnant for nearly all of 2016. But on the other, it seems like just yesterday we found out and now we are about to bring a baby home. It is just crazy! I have reached that stage of pregnancy where I am basically uncomfortable all the time now. I am just huge and my feet and ankles are super swollen and my back hurts and my hips hurt and chances are I am waddling to a bathroom as you are reading this because baby be all up on my bladder!

I started my weekly appointments on Tuesday and the doctor said that I am measuring well, her heartbeat is good, my blood pressure was perfect and her head is in a good position. Yay! I love appointments that go well like that.

Chris and I are finishing up things on the nursery and as soon as we have everything done I will be revealing it on the blog! It’s the best decorated room in our entire house, obviously.

What have you been up to?

    I absolutely adore the mom on American housewife who used to be on Mike & Molly! Such a witty show. Girl, you are looking so good and I am so glad that this pregnancy is going smoothly for you! Does my heart good. I hope you have a terrific Thursday!

  • Reply Laura November 3, 2016 at 8:47 am

    American Housewife is my jam. I think more moms can relate to her than the skinnies in the show. 🙂 ALSO, please Friday hurry up so we can shove cheeseburgers in our faces. And I think I’m going to try that Popsugar work out — I’ve been looking for something this is NOT running, but gets my heart rate up. Your bump is too cute, and I CAN”T WAIT TO SEE THE NURSERY.

    I love the Christmas photo checklist! I always feel like I forget to take photos of the little Christmas details but the little details really are my favourite holiday traditions!

  • Reply Carly November 3, 2016 at 10:57 am

    Yesss, I love how you said enhancing both months! I can’t wait to hear what you think about that book- I think it’s on my TBR list even though netgalley denied me! So, so exciting you are getting so close to her due date– you look amazing! I can’t wait for the nursery reveal when you guys finish 🙂

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says November 3, 2016 at 11:06 am

    Ah, the waddling, swollen, uncomfortable stage. I remember it well. If it helps, Erica arrived 10 days early so hopefully your daughter does the same and you won’t have that much longer to go. And hooray for December babies!!!

    I keep hearing about American Housewife. I should find out what channel it’s on and maybe give it a chance.

  • Reply kristen November 3, 2016 at 11:26 am

    Miracle on 5th Avenue looks super cute! i haven’t read Little Earthquakes but i quite like jennifer weiner.
    checking out those healthy recipes, and how awesome is the photo list for christmas. i really want to watch The Good Place, it looked SO funny.

    My nieces turned me onto The Good Place… I’ve been catching up on OnDemand. So cute.
    I always try to pick one Christmas book to read during the holiday – I may have to make that one my choice

    So glad to hear baby girl is doing so well! Always good news! Love your bump pics! I am with you on listening to Christmas music well before Thanksgiving, but I especially love that you mentioned wanting your daughter to be born loving Christmas music already. That made me smile!

    woah woah woah! You’re 36 weeks?!?!?! how did that happen? She will be here any day now! That’s insane. Tip: don’t watch American Housewife while holding you’re precious sleeping daughter. When you laugh you will wake her up…..oooops!!!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders November 3, 2016 at 1:12 pm

    American Housewife! Such a good show! Chris and I die laughing every time we watch it! I can’t believe that your due date is coming up so quickly, and I think that listening to Christmas music nonstop so she’ll love it too is a great idea! I haven’t started listening to Christmas music yet, but it might come sooner rather than later this year!

  • Reply Audrey November 3, 2016 at 1:24 pm

    I think I need to start the Christmas music because when it’s this warm this late in the year it takes me a while to slip into holiday-mode. Like, I just don’t feel it yet 🙁

    I really like The Good Place. I plan to start on American Housewife soon through hulu hopefully! Also, I totally just saved that Christmas Photo Wishlist to my computer- maybe that’ll help me get more festive!

    I can’t believe how soon baby will be here!!

  • Reply StephTheBookworm November 3, 2016 at 1:32 pm

    I really like Kevin Can Wait and I have the other two shows on my DVR but haven’t started them yet.

    Oh wow, the weekly appointments means it’s getting so close! Eeek!

  • Reply chelsea jacobs November 3, 2016 at 1:42 pm

    American Housewife is so funny!!

  • Reply Jessica November 3, 2016 at 2:01 pm

    I am so excited to see the nursery!!! November is one of the best months. I totally agree!

  • Reply alyssa November 3, 2016 at 2:13 pm

    I love Christmas music, but most of the time I start around Thanksgiving. Otherwise the year just starts feeling all too hectic and cramped and it just flies by me! I’m really looking forward to it this year though 🙂

    Look at your bump go! So glad everything is as it should be with baby girl. You must be getting so anxious to meet her!

  • Reply Gretchen November 3, 2016 at 5:43 pm

    You are rocking that bump and looking so radiant 🙂 Almost there!!

    Thanks for the TV show recommendations. I’ll definitely be checking out Housewife! What Christmas music do you like? I also started and I’m always interested in what everyone’s favorites are.

    Thanks for linking up!

  • Reply Lindsay November 3, 2016 at 8:51 pm

    You look so beautiful! Ah! I can’t believe you’re so close… on my end, it feels like your pregnancy flew by! 🙂 And can I just add that if running out of fucks counted as cardio, I’d be a size two. 🙂

  • Reply Robin November 3, 2016 at 10:46 pm

    I like the Christmas photo checklist, I might do several of those. I don’t think it’s too early for Christmas music!

  • Reply mandie November 4, 2016 at 10:46 am

    I watched an episode of American Housewife on Tuesday & I thought it was hilarious! I like Katy, I think that she is so funny. 🙂

    My stepdaughter was listening to Christmas music last night while doing homework. I’m not quite there yet, I don’t get there until the day after Thanksgiving & then it’s Christmas music all day long! Ha, ha!

  • Reply Duckie November 6, 2016 at 9:19 pm

    Baby is almost here! YAY!!! Yes, the last few weeks are the worst because of all the uncomfortableness and the anticipation of finally giving birth. We’re already in the second week of November and I feel like time needs to slow the fuck down real quick so I can get my shit together before the holiday madness starts! What’s up with this year flying by??

  • Reply texerinsydney November 7, 2016 at 6:43 pm

    I have downloaded some new Christmas songs for our work playlist but I haven’t started pumping them yet. Soon. Soon.
    I think it’s awesome that the nursery is the best room in the house 🙂
