Thinking Out Loud Thursday : 4/30/2015

Each week Amanda [Running with Spoons] hosts Thinking Out Loud Thursday. A chance for us to do some brain-dump blogging. And to hang out with fun people.

thursdays1 – Before we go anywhere, I want to say a huge THANK YOU for all of the supportive comments I received on my post about Infertility last week.  Knowing that I have support of family, friends, and random internet strangers has always made this journey just a notch easier.  1 in 8 couples face infertility.  You are not alone!

2 – The second big order of business?  April.  Freakin.  30th.  Uhm.  Where did the past month go?  I really know that I say this every month, but I truly have no idea.  I feel as I’m blinking, and the year is just gone.  That’s okay.  It has been below freezing each morning this week.  I’m not the only one who is confused.  🙂

3 – When I think of how quickly the month has gone by, I am also blown away at the fact that this little man is now one month old.  IMG_20150428_103756  Do you see that?! He even held up one finger.  He’s a smart one, I tell you 😉

I am currently torn between being super excited to see him grow up, and wanting to snuggle him just like this forever.  IMG_20150425_134745#MyNephewIsTheBest

4 – This week, however, we’ve had to take a nephew-snuggling retreat because Nathan and I have both come down with colds.  So sad.  There has been a lot of couch time.  And tea.  And all around sneezing, coughing, snot-filled-fun.  Screen Shot 2015-04-29 at 2.27.40 PM

^ Totally true.  Especially this week. 

5 – Along with the cold weather + feeling terrible, I’ve found a new appreciation for my flannel shirts (that I ..hhrrmm.. lived in for my first month of my remote position) as “jackets” over my t-shirts.  The perfect lightweight + totally soft addition to my “work from the couch” wardrobe.  IMG_20150427_174128Actually, I was outside there.  For like 10 milliseconds. 

6 – Oh! I finished a pair of socks! IMG_20150426_193759They are actually the shortest pair I’ve knitted.  I played major yarn-chicken with only using one skien of yarn.  They’re pretty much awesome, and the yarn was only 4 dollars 🙂   In the end, I finished with about 1 yard of yarn left.  Shew!

7 – Andddd we can’t mention crafting without mentioning this little bag I sewed up a few weeks back.  IMG_20150418_093006Yes folks.  Flowers out the outside.  Robots on the inside.  #Nerd. 

8 – Okay.  Pirate – Indy and I are going to continue to wallow on the couch about our sneezing and snot.  IMG_20150424_164107See his little Pirate collar?! 🙂 

Alright folks! I may be MIA next week – but I’ll be back soon! Hugs!

P.S. – 

We should be friends! Find me on Twitter and Facebook
