Seven Quick Takes

I wonder if I have 7 things to tell you today. Let’s see!

There are two girls I talk about the most: Lyndsey and Lauren. The stars have aligned and the world is good… I get to see BOTH of them this weekend!!

Anytime Lyndsey knows that she’s going to see me, she gets a pedicure. I have this thing about women with unpainted toenails. I think it’s nasty. I don’t require that you get a pedicure. I don’t even require that you paint your toenails. But just know that if they aren’t painted, I will think your toes are gross. (Why doesn’t spell check recognize “pedicure” as a word???)

For those of you who are new or ignored me the first time around, I’d like to give out a little bit more love for Swagbucks. It’s a search website where you win points that can then be used to buy things. I’ve been on it about 2 months or so and I’ve already earned the equivalent of over $25 in Amazon gift cards… for searching! I just go to their site and search “facebook” to get me to that site instead of typing in the URL. If you want more info, let me know! Click here to sign up. Friday is a good day to start because it’s “Mega Swagbucks Day” and you earn even more. Y’all, I’m a super fan! Free money is the way to my heart.

I’ve heard several reports (from you and Twitter) about the latest interview about Jillian Michaels. She stated that she is going to adopt because she “can’t handle doing that to my body.” I’m sorry, whaaaaa?? Doing WHAT to your body, exactly? There is nothing wrong with pregnancy. God is good. Pregnancy was God’s idea. He wouldn’t require something out of us that wouldn’t be good for us. And, I’m sorry, pregnant women are cute! Nobody looks at them and thinks they are fat! “Also, when you rescue something, it’s like rescuing yourself.” Having a baby IS NOT about you. If you make it about you, you will be seriously, seriously disappointed. Issues Jillian? Stop being a shrink to everyone else and work on that.

I have two greatest pregnancy fears. The first is that my water will break at work or another highly public place. AWKWARD. “Excuse me, I need to skidaddle over to the hospital. Would you be a peach and clean up my uterus juices?” Gross. The second fear is not something to mentioned aloud. But let’s just say it has nothing to do with pain. I’m not saying I’m a superhero or anything, but I know I can get through the pain. My mom had three babies without drugs and I’ve seen how much she winces when our Lucy works out her knots. If she can give birth without dying, I can too.

I once read an article about how to save money in really random ways. One of the things they discussed was calling your cable company and telling them you’d like to cancel because they’ll give you a great deal. I was too nervous to do this because 1) I never had any intention of quitting cable and I’m an awful liar and 2) What if they didn’t offer anything and they just cancelled it? Well I told you that we actually did decide to cancel cable. Long story short, they never just cancel your cable. They offer you fantastic things. So not only did we NOT cancel cable, but we have more channels (including movie channels… what?!) with a guide and we’re paying only $15 more than we would be if we only had internet. So BUCK UP y’all. Call your cable company and tell them you want to cancel because you need to save money. You will not regret it.

I have slept wonderfully this week! WONDERFULLY! I’ve gotten the hang of my pillow and I’m sleeping almost better than I did before I was pregnant! Praise the LAWD! Although for some reason I still never feel rested. I guess we can’t have everything.

Have a great weekend, y’all!!
