How I'm doing...

It hit me this weekend after I posted Grace's one month update that this is my blog, and some of you might actually be interested in hearing how I'm doing. Ha.  Apparently it didn't take long for Miss Priss to take over my entire life, including my little corner of the internet. :)

So in case you're curious, here's what I've been up to lately.

I've been...

... drinking sweet tea like nobody's business.  Now that I'm not pregnant or breastfeeding anymore, I can indulge in caffeeine without any guilt whatsoever.  In a few days or so, I'm going to have to rein it in because the syrupy-sweet goodness isn't exactly calorie friendly, but for now, I'm letting myself enjoy it.

... watching a whole lot of this:

Are we the only people who never saw this when it was on TV?  Holy cow, I'm in love.  It's the perfect combination of small town drama/family values/yummy Taylor Kitsch (who plays bad boy Tim Riggins on the show.  My infatuation with this guy is so out of character; we all know I'm usually drawn to the wholesome quarterback and not the long-haired, brooding fullback. :))

... stealing Grace's Johnson's Baby Bedtime Lotion.  I swear, y'all, this stuff smells fantastic.  Every time we bathe her, I slather both of us in it and breathe in the scent like a weirdo.

... watching the scale like a hawk.  I'm down about 41 pounds since I had Grace, and although that sounds like a lot, I've still got a long way to go to get back down to my pre-pregnancy weight.  I ate way too many cheese tator tots from Sonic over the last nine months, you guys.  Next time I swear I'm sticking to grilled chicken and veggies.

... cuddling with this guy.

We are still in an almost honeymoon-like state of bliss, and it's so wonderful.  We'll eventually get back to fighting over the remote and picking at one another's annoying habits, but for now, we're enjoying each other and this little girl.

... searching for an internal medicine doctor.  I'm pretty sure that the middle-of-the-night stomach and back pain that I experienced during pregnancy and is now rearing its ugly head again is related to my gallbladder.  I figure that since I've already met my deductible for the year, I might as well get it taken care of.

... enjoying my freshly-colored and cut hair.  We left Grace for the first time this weekend while Micah had softball practice and I went to the salon.  My mom and stepdad took incredible care of her, and it was nice to get away for a little while.  It made the snuggles she gave me when I got home even sweeter. :)

... munching on the delicious red velvet brownies that the sweet cousin of one of my oldest friends brought Micah and me on Saturday.  Thank you again, Rebekah!

Alright guys... the little girl is napping in her crib for the first time (she usually sleeps in her Rock 'N Play or her bouncy seat during the day).  So I think I'm going to lay down and take a little nap myself. :)

LOVE Friday Night Lights. So well written.

I never watched that show, either, but I think I need to check it out!

So, I know this is unsolicited advice - but I totally experienced similar issues after having a baby. Turns out I'm allergic to gluten, and for WHATever reason it decided to flair up after E got here. Have you looked into that? I wasted lots of time and money visiting drs and no one could figure it out except my friend who happens to be gluten-intolerant, too. It sucks to be, but the way I feel when I don't eat it vs how I feel when I do it makes it worthwhile to eat GF. Hope you feel better soon!

So glad you are enjoying your precious girl and your hubby. It is so nice to get out and do things for yourself once you have kiddos, so I'm sure you enjoyed every second of getting your hair done. 41 pds is awesome! Keep up the hard work.

Ok - no you weren't the only ones who missed FNL, because I just finished binge watching! :) I am with you on Riggins. WHAT IS IT!?!? In real life who would really love an alcoholic who never seems to shower, wash his hair, or even brush it? But on TV he is beautiful! :)

Emily said...

I have still never seen FNL, so you aren't the only one! I need to pick up a season and start watching, I have a feeling I would love it! Yay for fresh hair too, that always makes you feel good! Double yay for the weight loss! I have lost 31 lbs since Lilly, and that puts me back in my pre-pregnancy pants but they just don't fit the same. I am hoping to keep losing, would like to drop at least 40 more pounds. We can do it!!!!! How soon do you go back to work?

Colleen said...

Yay! you should enjoy this time at home with your sweet girl and hubby. Nothing like a fresh haircut too!!!

Camille said...

Congrats on losing the weight! That's about how much I have lost so far after having my daughter, and she's already 5 months! So I think you're doing great. :)

I hope you find a doctor and get your pain taken care of soon!

Friday Night Lights is our alltime favorite show. Most Fridays, including tonight, I tell Matt that I miss Friday Night Lights.
