I woke up at 2:45 this morning. I was WIDE AWAKE. I forced myself to stay in the bed until 3:45, then I just couldn't lay there anymore. I knew all my flipping and flopping would wake Jason up, so I just got up. I left the kitchen kind of messy last night (bad, I know), so I got it all cleaned up, then worked on some PTO stuff for the school.
On the way to take the girls to school this morning, it dawned on me that I'd already been awake for 5 hours, and I got really sleepy feeling. I'll probably be a zombie by 8 o'clock tonight!
Here are my Friday Favorites for this week!
PUMPKINS, PUMPKINS, PUMPKINS!
When I get my pumpkins for decorating, I usually go to the pumpkin patch by myself one morning after taking the girls to school. This year, since I'm not able to pull around a wagon full of pumpkins, we all went late yesterday afternoon. The girls played and Jason followed me around with the wagon. I think I drove him insane. But he was a very good sport *Ü*
I can't get enough of these zinnias. There was a function at our church the other night that Jason went to while I stayed home with the girls. The ladies in charge of decorating sent me this arrangement of zinnias in a big mason jar. I love.
Fall Magazine Issues
Anytime I mention a magazine I've seen and liked, my Mom tells me she gets it already...not to get it...I can have hers. She seriously gets every single magazine on the face of the earth. And her subscriptions don't run out until like two thousand thirty-something...I kid you not. She sent me a bunch of Fall issues last week that I've been enjoying looking through. Notice the bottom corner of the "Southern Living" magazine...my Mom and Dad both initial it when they're finished with it, then it gets tossed (or in this case, passed on to me). Isn't that cute?
Chevron Dog Bed
Because Abby really, really needed a new dog bed.
Arm & Hammer Laundry Detergent for Sensitive Skin PLUS Fresh Scent
I've been a Gain girl for a long time. But I recently changed over to this detergent, and I love it. It smells so fresh and seems less harsh on our clothes.
Simple Face Wash
I was sort of forced into buying this face wash after the face wash I've used for years was apparantly discontinued. I really like it, though. It's for sensitive skin, and my face never feels dry. I can wash my eye makeup off with it and my eyes never burn.
NYC Big Bold Plumping Lip Gloss in Colossal Cacao
I have this lip gloss in Big City Blush, which is a pinkish color. I got it in Colossal Cacao, which is a brownish color for Fall. The applicator brush for these lip glosses is very fat, which I like a lot. This color goes with the lipliner I already use.
I drink a gallon of water a day most days. When I don't, I feel terribly dehydrated. I have to have my water! It's really helping me to control my weight gain this pregnancy.
I walk 30 minutes every day. I used to not enjoy it, but I've gotten to where I really look forward to it. I downloaded the tune-in radio app on my phone and listen to K-Love while I walk. I like to use the time to pray, too.
