Blame the Hormones

Hey Y’all!

Birthday potluck was a slamming success. I ended up getting TWO cakes (one ice cream and one homemade gluten free, fairy free, white chocolate blueberry creation that my sister made), and we all stuffed our faces with moose meatballs, kale and cabbage salad, brussels sprouts with bacon, and whipped potatoes. And like always my family has the weirdest table talk that I would not trade for anything. You have to see it to know what I am talking about.

My amazing birthday meal ended with me doing a demonstration on how my snoogle works. For all those who are curious a snoogle is a pregnancy pillow that looks like this:

snoogleMy step-dad and brother in-law are now going to buy one. I had them green with envy. But in all seriousness, this pillow is amazing and I slept like a baby last night. It was like a giant pillow hug that encircled my whole body!

In other (not surprising) news I am still demolishing books like it is my job. I am really digging YA novels, paranormal romances, and books along the lines of Fifty Shades of Grey. Don’t hate me. I am blaming my pregnancy hormones for my recent taste in books. Sure there have been some AWFUL ones along my way but there were also some surprisingly good ones too! I have been scouring GoodReads.com to get some new book ideas and some of the reviews make my entire day. For example, I stumbled upon Bared to You by Sylvia Day and was like okay let’s see what this has going for it. The first review (by a girl named Katrina) had me on the floor dying from laughter. Click here if you want to read it (scroll to the bottom to see the reviews, hers is the first one) but be warned there is some very explicit language. The GIFs make the entire review. Let me know if you snort water out your nose when you read this review like I did. 

I’ll be back in tomorrow with my 16 week update.

Question: what are you currently reading?

Quarter of a Century of Me

So today is my 25th Birthday!

yes

I am now a quarter of a century old 🙂

BdayI have had some pretty memorable birthdays, from the one where I wore a crown and had a very inappropriate birthday cake (thanks friends…)

to my first birthday that I celebrated with Brian

I think this is when he knew I was a keeper 😉

This year instead of drinking champagne and dancing all night with my friends, we are having a family potluck and Brian bought me a snoogle 🙂 I’d say that is an awesome way to bring in my 25th year!

Have a great day!
