Currently – Nearing the Third and Final Stretch

Linking up with Kristen and Gretch with what’s new with me, currently style. Also giving a little update as I close in on my third and final stretch of pregnancy! I have one week left in my second trimester. Crazy, right? Anyways, let’s get to it!

Reading: Results May Vary This is an interesting read so far. When I read the premise, I thought maybe it would be a little like the show Grace and Frankie that I really enjoy.

Results May Vary

Listening: Fangirl on audio book. This has been on my TBR ever since I read Attachments. I adored Attachments so much, and while this is a decent listen so far, I don’t love it as much.


Watching: I have mentioned before that we have been binging on One Tree Hill. Laugh if you want, but this show is awesome. Also, I really just love Sophia Bush!

We have also been keeping up with Pretty Little Liars all summer. We still need to watch the last two episodes though, so no spoilers! I am sure it is crazy as the rest of the season has been! I heard that last year will be the end of it all. Can’t wait to see how it all goes down.

Planning: A few weeks ago, my china cabinet finally made it’s way in to our kitchen. I have a few things in there, but I hope to really re-organize the entire kitchen in the next month or so. I want to make space for a baby cabinet in the main area for bottles and what not and then I just want everything else better organized now that we have more storage. And don’t get me started on the pantry!

We also need to clean out our garage. There is some stuff in there that we will never use and it just takes up space. Thankfully we aren’t those people who have an entire garage packed full of shit. We do keep our cars in there so it isn’t that bad. But still! And I need to paint the nursery, organize the other spare room, probably purge more things. Basically I am in full blown nesting mode. Cant stop. Wont stop.

Pinning: All kinds of things! Baby stuff, hair cuts/colors, kitchen organization, food, funnies.

A winning combination - Gray, gold and blush pink in this girl's nursery.:

Pregnancy: As I mentioned, tomorrow I will hit week 27 of my pregnancy, my last of the second trimester!!! It is seriously crazy how fast this time is going. I swear I just took the test yesterday and now my belly is large and in charge and baby girl is in there just bopping around. She totally gets bored when I sit at work all day, and she let’s me know it. I have been experiencing some pretty intense hip pain and my lower back will hurt from time to time. Last week I discovered that I will be one of the “lucky ones” who gets to experience Braxton Hicks for the remainder of my pregnancy. Fun times. I guess I will be all practiced up for the big event.

bumpdatesI share weekly bumpdates on Mommy Babbles if you are interested in all the details. I usually post them on Fridays, which means the posts are a week behind where I actually am.

Excited: For football season to start on Saturday!!! And the three day weekend. I wish every weekend was a three day weekend. Also, I am getting my hair cut tonight, so that is always fun!

    Love the hair cut you’re pining. I love that style. One Tree Hill is a classic. It will always be one of my all time favorites. I’m still catching up on the current season of Pretty Little Liars, but holy cow! Can you believe it lasted this long? My friend and I joke around that we’re too invested now to give up on the show.

    I am in the market for water bottle storage.

    I can’t believe you’re nearing the end. Baby…soon!!!

    Oh I totally forgot about your mommy blog! I’ll have to check it out! haha. I used to love OTH…I think I watched everything but the last season (after L & P left). I enjoyed Fangirl but Attachments was better πŸ™‚

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer September 1, 2016 at 8:52 am

    Are you getting your hair cut like the pics above? I’ve been wanting to do mine like that but am too chicken! Can’t wait to see what you do. And you’re looking so beautiful!

    baby bump! love it. kayla used to kick me ALL THE TIME. and she got lots of hiccups so that was weird too.

  • Reply marie September 1, 2016 at 9:25 am

    You look so cute with your bump!! I never got into One Tree Hill but my friend loves it. I totally should check it out one day. Heck, I’m still trying to finish up Gossip Girl. haha

  • Reply Jess September 1, 2016 at 9:58 am

    Third trimester happens so fast! I can’t wait to see your little baby! Fangirl’s not my favorite, but it wasn’t bad. Nesting is no joke. I’m trying to find all the ways to maximize our space! I feel like my baby girl is taking her time finding her way out, because I haven’t had any Braxton Hicks yet *knock on wood.* I had some cramps a couple days that were not fun that felt like period cramps, but no BH yet! Unless that counts, who knows.

  • Reply Audrey September 1, 2016 at 9:59 am

    I think Sophia Bush is seriously the cutest.
    That nursery picture is GORGEOUS. Good for you guys for cleaning some stuff out and making some space. That’s a great thing to do before baby gets here!

  • Reply Amy Getz September 1, 2016 at 10:01 am

    I love these posts . . . it’s fun to see what everyone else is up to! And I can’t believe you’re already knocking on the 3rd trimester door . . . she will be here before you know it!

    You know, I have never seen an episode of One Tree Hill or Pretty Little Liars. Not a single one.

    I am loving the baby bump pics! πŸ™‚

    Ha ha, that meme is so my husband and I! He absolutely is my best friend but I swear he doesn’t hear 90% of what I say he just acts like he does, ha ha! Oh sweetie, your hair would look so gorgeous like that, I think you should go for it! So fun pinning all kinds of baby goodness, you’re going to have the most stylish baby girl!

  • Reply Amanda September 1, 2016 at 12:09 pm

    Woo! Third trimester! Getting closer and closer, and you look great! That’s exciting, although bummer about the BH contractions.

  • Reply Rebecca Jo September 1, 2016 at 12:16 pm

    Your bump!!!!! I love it! So cute!
    I love that basket as a way to hold cookbooks!
    I love the way nurseries are done now. No more cartoon animals on walls & balloons painted everywhere. They are all so classy now.

    Oh man I need that water bottle rack so bad. Ours are a mess! I love the baby bump pics and that nursery inspiration photo is a dream!

    I haven’t ever seen OTH but it’s still on my Netflix list! I can’t believe you’re almost in your 3rd trimester already!

  • Reply kristen September 1, 2016 at 10:02 pm

    oh my gosh, shut up that you are about to be in your 3rd trimester. crazy!!! i’m sorry about the braxton hicks… i hope they make labor easier lol.
    i loved attachments as you know, but i was not as big of a fan of fangirl. the story was cute, but the ‘fanfic’ or even the ‘original’ story, i honestly could not have card less lol.
    results may vary looks cute though! pretty covers always grab my attention.

  • Reply ellesees.net September 2, 2016 at 8:50 am

    I’ve never seen OTH!! I know, travesty! Love the hair inspo. I’m tempted to get a short wig to try it out on myself. Love the baby room inspo too. Have fun this weekend. Go Dawgs!

  • Reply Jackie September 2, 2016 at 9:01 am

    Your pregnancy seems to be going by so quick!!! I just finished up OTH a few weeks ago. I was a little disappointed with the second half of the series because it felt like a different show with the same characters. I didn’t think I would like Chad Michael Murray so much, but I did.

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots September 2, 2016 at 9:42 am

    Ahh you’re so cute, I feel like you just announced your pregnancy and now it’s almost your third trimester?! That’s crazy how fast it went! And ahh PLL my favorite show!

  • Reply Hayley Simpson September 2, 2016 at 6:27 pm

    Ain’t no shame in bingeing on One Tree Hill. It will always be one of my favourites. I also only watch Chicago PD because of Sophia Bush. Such commitment! Have a great September πŸ™‚

  • Reply Gretchen September 3, 2016 at 9:42 am

    I’m so excited for football to start too! I’m a Penn State grad so football season is really special and important to me. Can’t wait to cheer them on today πŸ™‚ Thanks for linking up with us!!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders September 3, 2016 at 2:39 pm

    I’m so excited that it’s finally football season! I”m just excited that I finally know what I’ll be doing on Saturdays for the foreseeable future! And yes to reading Rainbow Rowell! I have Fangirl on my list for Erin’s reading challenge so hopefully I’ll be reading it soon, and my friend who recommended her to me always says that Attachments is her favorite by her.

  • Reply Tracy September 5, 2016 at 10:49 am

    I used to have my hair cut and colored like that…I think I might have even used one of those pics as inspiration for my stylist and she totally nailed it. It was my favorite cut and color I’ve ever had. Then about a year later I wanted the exact same thing again and it came out not at all like the first time and it totally scarred me and now I am afraid to do anything to my hair haha!
    Your bump is the cutest! So funny that she gets bored in there when you’re at work all day!

  • Reply Teh Megan September 7, 2016 at 12:01 pm

    That water bottle can holder thing is genius! I always struggle to reach the bottles.
