Been Sick

Happy Friday Bloggers. I have been pretty darn sick. I caught a bad cold/flu like virus from the hubby and was out of commission for a while. I also could not take anything to feel better. Needless to say it has passed and I am due to post a new AWARD POST. Yes I got another award. The post will be coming soon.

Happy Friday, stay healthy everyone and enjoy the day. It is going to be a frigid weekend out east! Stay in a blog!

Something to do on Sunday

My husband is working all day today so I promised to go to the grocery store. This means on this Sunday, which as you all know by now, is my lazy day, I have an obligation. I think I am going to head to the grocery after I type this message. Not sure how the weather is where you are, but for me this means putting on the warm clothes and uggs and venturing out in the snow. It is okay though. I might give in at the grocery to some goodness. Not sure what goodness that will be yet, but I will be sure to report.

In other news, I am continuing my 11 to 12 hours of sleep a night. Building a baby takes alot of work, and I do feel like I am hibernating through my first trimester. Fortunately it is cold outside and I don't mind.

After I get back from the grocery I may just hop on the Wii fit for a bit and then I plan to take a shower and put the sweats on and curl up with my book.

Oh yes, and I am off work tomorrow for MLK day! Yeah for me! Another day of R and R. I swear this summer I will make up for all the relaxing I do now!

Snow and Cold Out East

I hate to be negative here but I am not a winter fan at all. Granted I have heard from people who live in warmer climates that the cool weather comes there too, and they feel cold just as we do here out east. But come on....18 degrees versus 40. I will take 40 any day over that. I think it is just something with the bone chilling cold that I don't like. Fortunately I have some comfortable PJ pants and some lovely new socks to bundle up. My plans for this Sunday include a cardio workout and a nice crockpot meal. I am hoping to watch a movie too. What are your plans for this Sunday? What is your favorite way to warm up?

The Heart of it All

Today I went to my 8 week checkup. I cannot believe it is 8 weeks! We had an ultrasound and I saw the little baby's heart beating. What a huge sigh of relief and a good feeling. My husband got tears in his eyes. We love our doctor and just know this is going to be an amazing journey!

Sunday sweat suit day is great. It involves the couch a comfortable pair of sweatpants and me. You know I have never been a big nap lover, but right now, there is nothing better. Today it is rainy and decently warm, but overcast and rainy. I plan on going to 9 am spinning class and then coming home and changing into my favorite lounge wear. Can anyone imagine anything any better? I love it!
