Right Now...

I'm stealing this idea from Lyndsay, because I think it's a fun idea... it's ok because she stole it from someone else too. And we all know, if someone else does it first, it is fair game.

Listening... to total silence. It isn't something that I get to hear very often.

Eating.... my Cocoa Pebbles cereal. When I was pregnant with Natalee I ate a ton of Cheerios, but this time it's all about the Cocoa Pebbles. It's totally a boy.

Drinking... A decaf white mocha from Starbucks. It isn't very good today... I hate when that happens.

Wishing.... that I felt better, and that I wasn't terrified of having Natalee come home after 4 days away because I have no idea how I'm going to take care of her while feeling like this.

Wearing... Jeans and a pink long sleeved t-shirt that was a hand-me-down from my sister's maternity stash. I had double the clothes this pregnancy thanks to that stash. Sweet!

Enjoying... the quiet of the morning. I started work at 5:30 this morning so that I can leave earlier.
Feeling... contractions, again.
Missing... my dog. When I talked to Sean yesterday I told him "Don't take this the wrong way, but I really miss Shelly." I enjoy the time to myself more than I can ever put into words, but it just isn't the same without the dog there to greet me when I walk in the door.

Thankful... for my family, my job, my amazing coworkers and that I'm fortunate enough to have a beautiful, warm home to return to each night.

Weather... it's cool, super windy and tons of rain. In other words: it's perfect.
Planning... all of our holiday outings/gatherings. It's nice that we have so many people to celebrate with... but it has its downsides too.

Praying... for our troops that can't be with their families this holiday season.

Making... cloth diapers, lots of them! I'm having so much fun with this new hobby.

Wanting... a new sewing machine. This is the one I want, isn't it beautiful?

Needing... nothing at all. It's easy to confuse needs and wants, but there really isn't anything that I need and for that I am thankful.
Thinking...that this baby is going to be a boy, Sean would be so excited even though he swears that he wants another girl.
Dreaming... of snow. I wish it snowed here on a regular basis (more regular than once ever few years). I wish I could look out the windows in the mornings and see fresh snow dusting everything.

Loving... my husband and all the little, thoughtful things that he does for me.

awww - what a sweet post!
You are in the "lucky" category! I know I (personally) am in a MUCH better place than I have ever been in and SO thankful for it!

Love this. I would steal it too, but my answers would be crap: eating nothing, drinking nothing, making nothing, etc. I read it at the wrong time! Ha.

Lyndsay said...

Aww.... this is nice. I like the way you said lots of nice things about your husband and then snuck in what you wanted for Christmas - nicely played.

Love this post!
I too cannot stand when the drink I have been waiting for at Starbucks ends up being only mediocre once I finally order it. Bummer.
Hope you have a great day!

I want a sewing machine! I actually DON'T know how to sew... but would love to learn! Is there like a "beginners" sewing machine?
