Confession: I was a bit worried about our long days of traveling between Ohio and California these past few weeks. Turns out, flying while pregnant is awesome! Everyone and their mother is incredibly friendly. From the old lady who showed me pictures of her new grandson (they told her daughter at all three ultrasounds she was having a girl…surprise!), to the man and his wife in the security line who asked all about our family. And then there was that stewardess who told other passengers to find seats in the front of the plane so we got an extra seat between us (and you can bet I pulled out the body pillow and took a full on nap). We got extra snacks, extra drinks, extra seats (on three of our four flights), and plenty of extra smiles. It’s just a good thing I was out of my first trimester when we landed in San Jose otherwise that turbulence might have done me in.
A few other things making happy at the moment:
- Typing from my desk this morning (for the first time since we moved from Cincinnati in June). I am significantly more productive than when sitting on on the couch or at the kitchen table. The office isn’t completely organized or put together yet, but half of the desk is clear and we can see most of the carpet 😉
- A two week countdown till Christmas + family visits.
- A husband that got home before 5 yesterday.
- The plan to pick up our very first Christmas tree this weekend!
^I packed up this beauty of a bag for my carryon and between the leather, the stripes, and the roominess, I’m a bit obsessed. The only downside was I packed it so full of electronics (if they lost my luggage I wanted my camera, lenses, laptop, external drives, etc) that it got a tad heavy. It worked quite a bit better stuffed with clothes and snacks for our weekend in Cincy after we got back but would have been ideal for my personal item if I’d had a small roller bag to haul it around on 🙂
^still trying to figure out exactly what to do with this short hair (I think it’s the shortest my hair has been since I was seven…other than maybe this haircut in college)
^the perfect weekender tote (and the quality on this guy is great)
^a 34 week baby bump (it’s funny to think that I thought I was SO big last time I wore this dress for my baby shower)
^my go-to black booties at the moment + finally a pair of tights that work with this growing bump!
