Fun Facts Friday {10/18}


Are you sick of me checking in & saying “no baby yet”??

Because I am. hah.

Technically I shouldn’t ‘freak out’ until Saturday……in Hypnobirthing they teach you that docs should say “due month” not due date (b/c the latter is a psychological thing–focusing on ONE DAY?!? Crazy talk.) And how the majority of babies born between 37 weeks-41 weeks are all kinds of totes healthy & good. So that is a 4 week window.

And I am approaching the end of that window, rapidly. Awesome.

So yah. That is fun.


Speaking of fun, how ’bout I share some fun facts with you today, on this fine Friday?! :)

Fun Facts Friday {10/18}

1. I am trying to focus on all the things I am grateful for.

It’s verrrryyy easy to get caught up in the “woe is me” talk because my lil’ girl is being stubborn (AND I thought she’d have been here by now….), but it’s super key to remember that she WILL come on her own time, and that this is awesome time I have to soak up those last moments of being just me & Jared. Or having unlimited ‘me’ time. Or doing whatever I want when I want to.

And not to mention that I am pregnant & have an adorable lil’ girl inside me. I feel very blessed. <3

Focusing on the positive has been really helpful this week!

2. I also sought out some spiritual enrichment yesterday, and it helped bunches. 

It felt so so good. It is always a nice reminder to know that you are not alone.

fun facts friday / temple

I love going to the temple!

3. I’ve stocked up on some movies, and books, per your suggestions!

I love the ideas you all have–so thank you for keeping me sane. I went to the library & got a few movies & books–so that’s fun!

I also didn’t really do anything physically active yesterday….it was weird not to go & teach a fitness class in the evening! I missed it, but it was also kind of nice to have a whole evening at home.

4. I had the CRAZIEST craving yesterday…..

fun facts friday /  wendy's

Yes I did.

I was out & about after the temple & I was hungry (I had eaten my homemade butternut squash soup before I left–so there’s that), and I felt kind of shaky & sick. The only thing that sounded good was french fries.

And I had to get a frosty b/c I went to Wendy’s. Duh.

I think the last time I went there was like 7 years ago? And the last time I ordered fries from a fast food place? 8 years, maybe?

No idea. But can I just say, that this was SO YUMMY. Like, it totally hit the spot & I felt so so satisfied & so much better after eating it.

(add that to the list of things I never thought I’d say….pregnancy does weird-o things to you, yo.)

5. I’m pretty sure I have the best readers ever!

You guys are such a wonderful, positive influence in my life–so I really appreciate your comments & your interactions. One day we will all have a big party in real life and we’ll eat fro yo together, and then go shopping at Trader Joe’s.

And then instagram it allllll. 😉

(go read this hilariously fab post about IG from Carly. hahahaha)

6. Speaking of, I freaking LOVE Trader Joe’s.

Yes, that is so ‘blogger-esque’ I know, but that store has some great finds!

I met up with a friend who is in town the other night, at TJ’s, and we chatted & shopped and had fun finding new things.

She has an adorable little boy & is pregnant with her 2nd due late in Dec.

7. Fall weather has been beautiful around here!

I am liking fall more & more each year, and right now, I really enjoy the weather. It is so nice! It’s crisp in the morning & then sunny & fall-ish during the day. And I of course like wearing jackets & boots. And scarves.

As much as I love the sun/hot weather, I think I appreciate the change in seasons too.

There, I admitted it.

8. I like face timing on the phone with my siblings & their kiddos!

A few siblings of mine are together this week (fall break) & I so wish I could be there….

..but I can’t fly anymore (obviously), so they’ve been great & have kept me company by facetiming me. And their kiddos join in the conversation & it’s hilarious.


Well, I am off to work. And a doc’s appt. And the weekend. Annnnnddd hopefully a baby….

Have a GREAT weekend!! <3

What crazy craving have YOU had recently??! What book or movie have YOU been loving lately??! Do YOU facetime/skype with friends/family often??! What are YOUR weekend plans??

  2. So praying this weekend will be the arrival of your little girl!!
    At least you’re trying to appreciate the things you’re grateful for. I know this time might be a little rough, but keep thinking of the end result!
    I’m sure I am so not helping…since I’ve never been pregnant and can’t relate, but I’ll still try.
    Canada seriously needs to get on the Trader Joe’s train. So not cool we don’t get all the neato stuff you all do.
    Hope you can keep yourself distracted with the movies and books!! And have a nice weekend<3 Thinking of you!

  3. I love this post!! What a great way to keep your mind busy and remind yourself that even though things aren’t going exactly as you want them too.. . things are still pretty awesome! And I totally agree that when you go to Wendy’s you NEED to get a frosty – duh! 😉 Good luck this weekend!! Whether you are waiting or having a baby.. . 😉

  4. I don’t know what it is, but sometimes french fries just hit the spot. They’re salty, crispy, bland enough to be perfect for nausea, but not too bland that they don’t taste good. When I eat fries, I always eat them with a vat of ketchup. Obviously.

    I can’t wait for our froyo/TJ’s date one day. It’ll be amazing.

  6. Continuing to pray for you, Girl! HUGS!

    This weekend we’re not doing anything too crazy. I have a baby shower tomorrow so that’ll be fun! :)

  7. OH MY GOSH so flying back from Hawaii I actually bought Burger King french fries. I haven’t bought myself fries in like…YEARS. I mean I steal one or two from David’s plate but never just buy a whole serving and chow down. I enjoyed each bite and then came home and ran, ha!

  8. Hugs to you!! I was induced at 41 weeks pregnant because my doctor didn’t like going beyond that point. I definitely remember how I felt that last week … thinking ‘Is she EVER going to come out??’ But she will. And it will be wonderful! :)

    Oh, cravings.. I get random cravings all the time. My latest was popcorn and M&Ms, mixed together. My new one – French fries and a Frosty. 😛 I’m excited to go home this weekend and see my boyfriend and dad and siblings and niece. I’m away from them at law school right now, and I miss them so much.

    I hope your weekend includes the arrival of your beautiful little girl! I’ll be sending you good vibes the entire weekend. :)

  11. I was always curious how a doctor can pick a due date. I understand the calculating based on the day but women can get pregnant a variety of days during a month so picking one day and deciding on induction, etc. because of that stresses me out! Your baby will come with she’s ready – she obviously just needs a bit longer to “cook” 😉

  12. not gonna lie, I check your twitter a couple times a day just to see if you say anything about her coming! Wendys, however, is a perfect way to distract yourself!

  13. Haha Wendy’s Frosty’s are so good! It’s been ages since I had one, but they are definitely a favourite.

    My Constant Craving is Ice Cream (Do you remember that song by k.d. lang from the 90’s called “Constant Craving”? Oh goshhhh!)
    Movie I love to watch over and over again lately is “Crazy Stupid Love”. :)
    This weekend: Birthday weekend!! :) :) Dinner tonight with the BF, dinner tomorrow with friends and boyfriend, BodyPump and running both mornings, celebrating my Dad’s birthday on Sunday with Captain Phillips and dinner.
    It’s gonna be a good weekend for you Annette! Big virtual hugs!

  15. Kaitlyn says:

    Thinking of you and hoping that baby girl is here soon!!!!!! hang in there!!!!!! :)

  16. I remember fries & frosties! I hope you dipped at least one fry into that frosty – it’s a rule! :)

  17. I’m not pregnant and the thought of the frosty + french fries is making my mouth water!!
    It’s so funny, when my sister and I talk we always facetime…we never just call each other anymore! She wants to see my kids and what they’re doing and I love getting to actually see her – since she lives states away!
    I hope she comes this weekend!! :)

  18. Ahh I thought today would be the day! 😉 Soon enough! I agree, they should change it to due month instead of day. That is just torture. I cannot wait to read Allegient by Veronica Roth. It is the 3rd book of the Divergent series. It comes out on Tuesday!
