So I’ve been thinking about what I wanted to write for today’s entry and a lot of things came through my mind, but none seemed like quite enough for a full post… so I thought I’d share some random thoughts.
First, a few people have asked about working out while pregnant – I’ve been primarily focusing on walking and maintaining activity that way. I walk with my mom in the afternoons a few days a week, take Buddy out for walks (he requires them – benefit of having a cute dog!), and, earlier in pregnancy walking-based activities (G and I did quite a bit of walking while camping, frisbee golf, etc.). Getting activity now is so much easier said than done but I’m trying my best.
The other thing I’m currently contemplating is getting a new iPhone (I told you this might be a bit random). My current iPhone works great, but I continually max out the storage capacity (despite utilizing Dropbox to back-up/store photos and such). With Baby Sparkles on the way, I think I want the ability to take/store more videos and photos… I would really hate to run out of memory right when I’m trying to capture a cute video or photo of her. So I’m currently debating whether or not I want to go with the PLUS model of either the iPhone 7 or 8. They just seem so big… but the portrait mode seems really great and a bigger screen might be nice. Plus, I don’t really keep my phone in my pocket or anything so maybe the size won’t bother me. Anyone have any thoughts?
I’m also trying to compile a list of Amazon Prime/Netflix shows to watch the last month of pregnancy and for when we first bring Baby Sparkles home (this has been one of the most common pieces of advice I’ve gotten from friends/new moms)! I have a few, but am open to suggestions! I tend to like happy shows – either fictional or reality… like House Hunters, Gilmore Girls, Hart of Dixie, Great British Baking Show, etc.
And in a final random thought, I know Halloween is coming up soon but I’m just not getting super excited about it and in fact, I don’t think we have any plans. It kind of feels like just another “milestone” to get through before we get to welcome Baby Sparkles. I’m going to try to put out some decor and get candy for the trick-or-treaters (even though we only get 2-3 per year)! Maybe that will get me more in the mood!
So those were my random Friday musings… I hope you all have fantastic weekends! 🙂
