Mindful Monday: Moving

Hello beautiful wonderful people!

It’s time for another one of our Mindful Monday posts – a roundup of things I’m currently into, some current goals, and some mini updates on my personal life.

Third trimester emotions are really hitting me hard at this point. Nothing is going wrong but I’m feeling a lot of stress, pressure, and I’m just no longer sleeping well. At ALL. I’m just tired all the time and it makes me cranky a lot more than I would like to be. So emotionally, I’m a little messy but regular life things are going well, so that’s good!

Since Last Time…

Since the last Mindful Monday post we’ve officially moved into a new place! It’s an adorable duplex right on the edge of town and we’re really happy with it. We’re still doing the last bit of moving and cleaning and it has been absolutely exhausting. Not only can I not do much of anything to actually help right now, but the upper 90s and triple digit heat made it extra hard on The Husband and the other guys we had helping us move. It was a little rough, but to be fair, we had most of the stuff moved within two days, so it’s getting done! I’ll be able to turn in my apartment keys in the next day or two and then it’s all unpacking and settling in!

Our wedding anniversary was yesterday and I wrote a whole post about it. We were busy with moving and being worn out to really celebrate, but we had a good day anyways. I’m still falling more and more in love with my handsome man every single day!

August is getting close to being half over and I’m so confused. Like… where is the time running off to…? I don’t understand. I’m hitting 35 weeks of pregnancy this week and we’re basically scrambling to have everything ready for our princess to make her appearance.

As a bit of a present for The Husband, I decided to try my hand at script writing… I already write everything else, so why not take this up too and then we’ll be an even better team – I’ll write/manage projects and he’ll direct/edit them! How fun would that be?!

Coming Up Next…
  • Unpack everything.
  • Baby shower! All the baby things, actually.
  • Keep surviving the August heat.
  • Enjoy this last month before baby A gets here.
What I’m Reading…

I’m actually on the search for a few new books to read – the insomnia is real right now and I’m burning through books on my Kindle SO fast! I’ve been brainstorming a mystery idea for one of The Husband’s scripts so I’m kind of on a thriller/mystery kick right now.

My other favorites are historical romances… they tend to be fairly easy reads, which is great for the times when I wake up at 1am and just need to do something other than lay there for two hours.  And fantasy. I’ll never turn down a good fantasy novel. Although I’m starting to branch out into some science fiction as well. Hmm.

What I’m Thinking About…

What issue has been preoccupying my thoughts?

Having reached the last stages of pregnancy I’m overanalyzing every little thing. I’m questioning how I feel at any given moment to make sure everything is still A-Okay. Preoccupied would be a gentle way to put it, if I’m being honest!

What do I really want to buy right now?

I’m shopping for rugs at the moment. The new place has concrete flooring and we need a large area rug for the living room as well as some small ones for other places. So rug shopping it is!


Now it’s your turn! How are things going in your life?? Let me know!

Sending you love and kindness!
