I haven't been feeling too hot for the last two days. Just a sore throat so nothing major, but I took the last few hours off work since I just want to be home, cuddled in a blanket and drinking soup and eating ice cream. I taught three classes this morning and headed home afterwards.

Ryan and I are participating in a spelling bee tomorrow (Jealous, aren't you? I'll write all about it next week) so I'm hoping to have a super chill night tonight so I can win, or at least just not get out in the first round, haha.

Before I head off to take a nap and then watch a bajillion hours of Law and Order: Criminal Intent I thought I'd leave all my lovely readers a few pictures of what we've been up to lately, via Instagram:

1. Ryan chatting with his parents on the banana chair (thanks again Drew and Jennifer--we can't thank you enough!)

2. We bought a car-seat!

3. One of my co-workers gave me some baby toys including big legos, a soft book and mailbox, a singing cow, and an awesome wooden book. Ryan is already a bit tired of that cow, but I just can't wait to play with them!

4. We went to a crepes place a few blocks down for us for a date night last week. Nutella and Strawberry crepes? Yes please. Their savory crepes looked super-good too. Also, I'm wearing the cowl-neck that my mom so graciously let me steal from her and some super cute felt rose earrings from Amanda the magnificent.

5. A sister missionary wearing Uggs. Love it. She's definitely a missionary after my own heart and I'd totally be doing that too if I went anywhere remotely cold.

6. A not-so flattering picture of the bump. We're down to long shirts or maternity shirts only these days to cover up the fact that I just wear jeans and don't even try to button them---just wear a long enough shirt and we're good to go. The shirt in the picture is too small (there's a bump-draft going on, as you can tell) so it's Target maternity v-necks + a cardi to the rescue.







Have a great weekend! Stay warm!
