SAVING // $75 per month! We just cancelled our digital cable this week. We still have basic cable, but, clearly, it’s much, much cheaper than digital (although, no more DVR, boo). We hardly ever watch cable anymore, as it is. Our bill before the downsize was $210 and now it’s $135! And our Internet speed went from 15 mbps to 50 (random)! Every since Google Fiber came to town, TWC has really improved their customer service. Still, as soon as Google Fiber is available in our neighborhood, we will jump the TWC ship for good. In summary, we only have basic cable now and hardly watch it anyway and will switch to Google Fiber whenever it’s available to us.
LOVING // The 13-month phase with my son. How is it possible he’s 13 months old in a few days? I feel like 12 months was a little tough for us, but we’re back in a sweet spot right now. When it’s sweet, it’s ohhhh-so-sweet, right? He is just so sweet and funny, right now. (How many times can I say the word ‘sweet’?) We spend our entire evenings making lap after lap after lap around our house with the walker and he has the biggest grin on his face the entire time. My heart bursts for that grin.
DREAMING // I had a dream that another mom at our childcare was already pregnant with her 2nd child and I was SO jealous of her in the dream. I wish I was ready to have another baby, but I’m just not. For so many reasons. I can’t wait to hopefully be blessed with another little babe some day, but for now I’ll just focus on soaking up the sweetness of my little guy.
ANNOYED BY // Post-partum hair probs. I have the same problem every woman has post-partum: during pregnancy, hair is full and luxurious and then right when you get home from the hospital it starts falling out in big clumps. (Gross.) Now, a year later, I have all these baby hairs growing back and framing my entire head and they really just drive me crazy. I can’t wait for them to grow out so I don’t look like a peach anymore!
PLANNING // A trip to Vegas in October with Krystal and 2 of my girlfriends. I seriously cannot wait! But, I’m already worried about how much I’ll miss my little one while we’re there. Luckily, when we return I’ll have a 3-day weekend to soak up a lot of mommy/son time with him. But … VEGAS! We are hoping to stay in a suite at the Cosmopolitan after we look into all our possible options. So excited! Now we just need to come up with a clever hash tag. #notgoodatcleverhashtags
READING // Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. It’s just as disturbingly awesome as her other 2 books.
WANTING // A new mattress (our Sleep Number bed is just too damn hot for me).
WORKING OUT // I really want to buy a new workout DVD series (like all those Beach Body ones I keep hearing about), but I have no idea where to start. I just can’t find the right time to work out. I’ve been toying with the idea of working out after my son goes to sleep around 7pm since I can’t find any other time that works right now. I haven’t worked out in the late evenings in years. But I feel crappy and out of shape and want to do something about it. I’m still running and lifting 2-3 times a week, but I need a change to kick things into gear.
BLOGGING // More. I’m going to blog more. I swear.
WATCHING // Orange is the New Black. Can’t decide if it’s as good as the first 2 seasons though?
