Sleep. Lately, I just can't seem to get comfortable! I wake up with nausea and the frequent urge to go tinkle. It's not that the baby is pushing up against my bladder, just yet. It's caused by the blood flowing through the bladder eliminating waste much more frequently. I'm not prepared for the 3rd trimester which I hear is worse! Then on top of that I have been having the most outrageous dreams ever! No idea what is causing that. So needless to say, I spend a lot of my nights tossing and turning. Oh joy, it's only the beginning.
Storage. I mentioned that Ryan and I moved in together at the beginning of March didn't I? Well, this place we are calling our first place is a cozy, read tiny, 1 bedroom back house in Inglewood. Which is ok cause it's really super cheap which will allow us to save monies. There is absolutely no room for anything extra in here. We've learned to start living with the bare minimum. On days when I feel well, I get this urge to clean organize. But I can't do much with the things that we aren't currently using but afraid to give away because this home is only temporary. Come October, we will need the space! So in the meantime, over the next couple of weeks, I'll be seeking inspiration for storage options for our teeny tiny space. I don't want to feel claustrophobic forever!
The Miranda Draped Jersey gown in Purple. I mean seriously, I fell in love with the green one but there is something about purple lately that has been calling my name. It's not a color that I'd normally wear, but this gown just screams royalty! This looks like an amazing piece that will carry me until this "B" belly turns into a "D" belly and quite possibly even beyond.
The Sturgis Dog bed for Sammy. Once upon a time, Sammy had a small puppy bed of his own and he tore it to shreds when I was at work. Since then, I've not replaced it, I've simply given him a cozy blanket to put in his crate. Apparently Sammy thinks he's a real boy, and whenever he wants to go lay down, he goes and plops in OUR bed and actually has the nerve to get under the covers. Silly puppy! If he had this, I'd try my best to lay on it and show him how it feels. Er, or not. But this little dog bed is awesome and damn near the price of a nice bed at Ikea! If our place was bigger and I could splurge one good time on him, I totally would.
Shoes! Thanks to Monique at Curves and Chaos, I'm now lusting over the Harlow Wedges that she mentioned on her site. I'm not a huge wedge gal, I tend to think they make my stems look more like tree trunks, but these are so damned cute that I may have to may an exception in April. Hmm, what do you think?
What are five things that would start your April off right?!
