Tuesday's Thoughts

I present, in no particular order, my thoughts...

T.V. is back this week!  The Mindy Project was back last week and did not disappoint.  This week I am adding two new shows: Modern Family and Scandal.  Last fall and spring I discovered these shows (I know, always late to the party) so this year I get to watch them DVR when they air! I'm still waiting to hear when Hart of Dixie is coming back.

Is fun. still making music? I like their music.  I should listen to music more often. Maybe then I'll wake up for my 3:00 a.m. potty with songs other than For The First Time In Forever and Do You Want To Build A Snowman stuck in my head.

I can't find my debit card. Help, please.

Today is the first full day of fall.  It was summer until 10:29 p.m. last night.  I wore a long sleeve shirt for the last day of summer. Bummer.

Is it just me or did the leaves turn overnight?

My current go-to pregnancy breakfast is apples and cinnamon oatmeal. My current lunch of choice is salads (Doc Friday would be so proud of me).

This baby Toodles moves all the time.  Granted it doesn't take much to move more than Monkey did.
Monkey has been asking non-stop to go back to the zoo. If only it weren't an hour away.  Sigh

C's 30th birthday is coming up and I've got nothing.  He's not a party person (used to be, but I took care of that) so we won't be doing that, but I need something. Help, please.

Weekend Rewind

I could write this rewind just about eating out this weekend.

Case in point:

Thursday: Noodles and Co followed by GiGi's Cupcakes and Barnes & Noble.
Friday: Five Guys Burgers and Fries (you can't just call it "Five Guys" you have to call it by the full name)
Saturday Lunch: the zoo
Saturday Dinner: Pizza Cottage
Sunday: Shade on the Canal

We had no intention of eating out everyday, it just happened. I blame it on busy schedules and being pregnant.

The good news is that that streak ends tonight.  I made a roast!

Friday night we watched the Cardinals game.

Saturday we went to the zoo, so make sure to stop by on Wednesday to see pictures of (our) Monkey looking at other monkeys (her favorite).

Here's a sneak peak:



That evening we watched the Cardinals game.

While Monkey and I napped on Sunday, C and Drew rearranged some aspects of the house so that we can move Monkey to her new room come November. Then Monkey and I went to the store.

Our last meal out for the weekend was a family meal at Shade on the Canal (because Drew was back in town).  I'm not sure the bacon on my cheese fries was even cooked.

Then we came home and watched the Cardinals game.

Our weekend was very repetitive.

A hymn of glory let us sing.

I bet you thought I was going to go all spiritual on you for this post, didn't you?

I'm just here to say that at church on Sunday we sang a hymn (same tune, but different hymn) that reminded me of this...



Now on with your day.

Monday's Miscellany

Today I am 29 and 1 month old.

I had a baby doc appointment this a.m.  Toodle's is doing well and kicking away (at my bladder). 

Monkey has named the baby Toodles.  Toodles is also her name suggestion for her new, life-sized stuffed sea turtle.

She thinks Toodles is a boy.  But she also thinks she and her doll, Maddie, are boys.  I haven't asked her what she thinks C is... Also, in her world green means stop and red means go.  We have a bit of confusion going on.

As much as I want the warm weather and pool days back, this cooler weather is making me want to cook (something I didn't want to do before because I'd rather be outside).

On my way back into town I stopped for a mocha because 1) it was cooler out and 2) I haven't had one in over 5 months and 3) I just haven't been hungry (or is it thirsty?) for them since being preggo.  So I gave it a shot.  Turns out I just can't get excited about them. Maybe come January I'll have a different outlook.

Even though I can't get into "Love, Nina" I also can't bring myself to return it (read: I'm lazy).  I just renewed it (with no intention of reading it) for the second time.

The Mindy Project is back tomorrow night!! I'm too excited to sleep!!

Great, now I want to go to Disney World.  (I always want to go to Disney World, just now more than normal.)

We've continued our re-watching of The West Wing.  Last night was 18th and Potomac.  My pregnant self can't handle losing Ms. Landingham.

Have I mentioned before my healthy woman crush on P!nk? There isn't a song of her's that I don't love.

That's all for now folks. Toodles!
