33 Weeks of Prenatal Bliss

Ok so that is a load of crap. The only blissful thing is knowing that in a few short weeks I will be able to officially meet my baby girl and shower her with love, hugs and kisses. The rest of this is really for the birds. This is a pregnancy rant so read at your own risk!

I want my body back! Aside from being high-risk for multiple reasons, I also have developed carpal tunnel in both wrists. I am no longer enjoying being pregnant. Boo-hoo, I know. I try not to complain, I really do. People laughed at Tamar Braxton-Herbert for her shenanigans on the show Braxton Family Values, and yes sometimes she did the most, but I feel her pain 110 percent! I just try not to be THAT vocal about it. Until now. And this will be the first and last...hopefully.

My feet are no longer my feet. They are swollen fat piggy sausages LOL. My hands hurt all the time and also resemble some sort of sausage/wiener. Everyone always says "I hope you are getting plenty of sleep because when the baby comes you won't get any." I feel like I don't even know what sleep is anymore. IF I can find a comfortable position to sleep in, it is promptly disrupted by painful hands, restless crampy legs or 5 nightly needs to go pee. When do I sleep? Usually at my desk when I'm supposed to be working and someone calls my name and then I realize I have practically drooled on my keyboard. Sometimes my eyes are open. Scary. OH! And the profuse sweating. I feel like I'm sitting in a sauna most of the time. Which is why my electric/gas bill is through the roof. 6 weeks and 5 days to go. But who's counting?!

I am going to the doctor every 2 weeks now. This provides me a lot of comfort because I can make sure my little boogie is progressing the way that she should and is doing ok. My last appointment I felt bad afterwards though. My doctor asked me if I had any questions and I didn't. I never have questions. What am I supposed to ask? I have no clue! I feel like they should be telling me what I'm supposed to ask LOL. Or at least what I need to know. I mean this is my first time creating life. Next appointment I'm gonna bombard her with all sorts of randomness that will at least make me feel like I'm getting my insurance's worth.

I keep reminding myself that it is much easier to take care of her while she is still in there and that helps a lot!

I had plans to finish the nursery last weekend so that I could try and figure out how to do this thing called REST that everybody keeps talking about. But that didn't happened. A couple of weeks ago I got her closet organized and I'm proud of how neat it looks. I just hope it stays that way!

And Sunday evening I got the glider and ottoman put together. Now I just need someone to come and feng shui for me. Any takers?

Thank you for letting me rant! I feel better already!

Happy Day folks!

    1. Thanks Key. I'm just trying not to lose the last few marbles I have left!

Black Panther: Movie Review

Please tell me y'all have seen the movie? If you haven't, don't read this post!

Let me give you a little bit of my back story on this Marvel Cinematic Universe. I am a Marvel fan. I don't read the comics, but the movies?! I'm here for them. Some of them are blah, but I watch them anyway. Why? Because usually they overlap and share stories. So, in preparation for the opening of Black Panther, I watched ALL of the Marvel movies in order of the stories, not the release date. I followed CNET's guide and it was pretty accurate. I did not watch the TV shows because I would still be watching. You don't have to. The movies will fill you in pretty well.

Now, for what I thought.

1. This movie was beautiful! The colors, the wardrobes, the technology, the natural hair, the beautiful black people that starred in this film, it was amazing!

2. The women. OMG. The WOMEN! The strong women in the movie inspired me. Okoye makes me want to shave my hair back off. Nakia makes …

Pura Vida!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

Soup(er) Sunday!

This past Sunday I hosted a Crafty with Canon party. I won the party through House Party (I love this site!).

Initially I was planning to do a few different finger foods. Well, the temperature dropped and I wanted soup. And chili. So I made both! And my sister also made a soup that was super delicious. I used my usual go to chili recipe, except I doubled up the seasonings because I didn't have a chili seasoning pack. I think it actually tasted better! I made it in my electric pressure cooker! It was so much faster and it tasted better than it usually does. I'm in love with my pressure cooker and would like another one. Anyone have one they want to give me?

Anyway, we had fun exploring the Canon Pixma printer and printing out photos and making cute little frames! But the food was really the star of the show! I'm going to link to all of the recipes because aside from small adjustments, none of them were my own!

Broccoli and Cheese Soup.
This was a big hit! It was my first tim…
