It's currently 2:09 am. Yes, you read that right. A.M. No, I haven't been out partying all night and nor did I drink a bunch of caffeine (although coffee sounds good right now). I just can't sleep. This has become almost a weekly occurrence now and from talking to friends and doing research, it's common for second trimester pregnancy and may get worse in the third.
I'm ecstatic about this news.
Since I'm stuck awake at such a ridiculous hour, I figured I would entertain you by sharing some of the things that are keeping me entertained.
Side note: reading that statement above, I find it humorous that four years ago, staying up to 2 am by choice was almost a weekly occurrence. Alcohol? No, there wasn't much alcohol involved.
I really shouldn't be posting this late.
Fun things on the internets!
I came across this site in my reader and, for the fun of it, designed about 8 different duvet covers that I would get. Mi marido has issues with duvet covers though; he doesn't like that the duvet shifts in the cover. So much for that gorgeous aqua silk duvet cover that I bought two years ago. *le sigh* Anyway, this site is super easy to use, there are tons of patterns to choose from, and let's face it: if you have a tickle in your fancy to decorate your room YOUR way (insert foot stomp) then this may be just the option for you! Curbly did a post on it which was how I found such entertainment. Here's their link to the post so you can see what they came up with! So fun!
Tell me you don't want to move your entire living space onto this couch. And if you say you don't, I realize that you are lying to yourself to avoid spending the cash on it. We are all about comfort. I don't buy clothes or shoes that aren't comfortable (okay the shoes part isn't entirely true because heels aren't a woman's best friend) and we like for furniture to kind of coddle your body. That's probably why I'm not a big fan of leather furniture (unless it's an ottoman); well, that, and I grew up in the south and in the summer, who wants to sit on leather?! Gross. Back to this lovely couch though...I think the downside of this couch would be I would have to quit my job or risk getting fired. Who would ever want to leave this couch? The cushions on the end wrap so you can prop yourself up! Perfect reading position for a bookworm like me!
One day, I will own a really nice camera. Hopefully, that day will be sooner rather than later but I can only hope. Speaking of cameras, iheartfaces.com runs weekly photo challenges and does tutorials on their website to help others become better at photography and editing. The challenges are fun and really interesting so if you are a budding photographer or aspire to be a budding photographer or are just camera happy, you should check it out!
I love this song. Seriously love it. I just watched the video for the first time and it's pretty good as well.
Off to find something else to do...sleep well!
