I got new shoes! After all that, I ended up buying 4 pair and returning 3. The 1.5 size-up maneuver just wasn’t working for me, so I did the bigboxsportsstore thing and found some Asics that are super squishy, then found the same pair at Kohl’s 20% off for Columbus Day. Hurray for smallpox! They’re like a hug for my feet and I’m fully obsessed.
Did you see the super cute little dish that the soup from yesterday was in? It’s a Le Creuset bean pot, of all things, and I have one of them. Exactly one. It was a, wait for it, gift for one year of service at the hospital where I work. There is this catalog and you get a gift on certain anniversaries, and I find the one single-serving dish to be hilarious as an option, but it was cute and pretty so I went for it. It’s my Mental Health Bean Pot.
I get all these emails that are like “this week in your uterus” kind of updates, and they’re generally fun to read. This week, however, I learned that the baby is peeing inside of me up to TWO CUPS A DAY but no worries, the amniotic fluid….goes somewhere….and is replenished with fresh non-pee-soaked fluid each day. And the baby is breathing this fluid. Filled with her own pee.
- I love all of the Ina Buzzfeed lists, but this one about her Instagram account cracks me up. And you’re poor.
- Weekend time! We’re cooking for zee blog tomorrow (chorizo and cheese will be involved) and then Sunday have a breastfeeding class. I’ll be sure to report back on that. Also, I’m attempting to make a mobile for the baby’s room out of paper cranes all by myself. With Jay’s help. And the internet. And maybe some yelling.
