Ten on Tuesday - Pumpkins, Kitty Cuddles, and Dirty Hair

one. We had such a good Sunday! I stayed in bed until almost 11 (weird for me), we had lunch with cousins from Florida we never get to see, went to Michael's and bought some fall decor, finally registered for a stroller, and then ordered pizza for dinner and watched The Walking Dead. Good day in my book.

two. This is NOT what I bought at Michael's but I added this guy to my Halloween mantle! I love anything that lights up.

three. Got some more Christmas shopping done Saturday!

four. I finished reading The Shining. If you've seen the movie forget everything you saw before you read the book. Different in so many BIG ways. Next on the Stephen King list? Carrie.

five. This happened Saturday. One of the cats finally cuddled up to my belly! She even got kicked around a little!  And of course please excuse all the cat hair on the black shirt.  I should have known better...

six. Sometimes there's nothing better than a glass of Nesquik chocolate milk.

seven. I dreamed Sunday night about being chased by someone wearing a smile mask like the clown in American Horror Story.

eight. Heh.

nine. SOA: I really feel like Juice might die tonight.  No way Jax forgives him.  Jax might play nice and then kill him at the end of the episode or something.  The only way I will be at peace with Juice's death is if he rats on Gemma first and she gets what's coming to her.

ten. I only used a little dry shampoo in my unruly, wavy hair yesterday and pinned it halfway back with a clip just because I didn't feel like washing and drying it. I got more compliments on my dirty hair than my freshly washed hair. #FTW!

Baby W Update - 28 Weeks

Lots of changes this past month!  And oh yea, third trimester begins TODAY!  Holy cow.
Little man is growing and growing. As is my belly button which freaks me out.
I’m getting to the uncomfortable stage. I feel tight all the time now (I mean, duh) but at night I feel like if I sneeze I’ll just crack open like an egg. I've also been told I've developed a little bit of a waddle.
I had to switch my belly ring for a smaller one.  Just too dang uncomfortable.  I'm hoping I won't have to take it completely out because if it closes up it's NOT getting pierced again.

We had our monthly appointment Tuesday and got to see him again. I told the nurse it sometimes feels like he's in there stretching as far as he can because I feel him all over at once, and that's because he's just taking up that much room! He's about 15 inches now.

In other news, we toured four different daycares last week. Wow. That was an experience. Very surreal and slightly overwhelming. At the first place we visited, the very first thing we encountered was a little girl crying because her mother was leaving her. Chris and I cried right along with her. Can't handle it. Then in the nursery, there were babies everywhere (duh) and one spat up, and one was rolling around in his crib, and one was staring at Chris and I could see the panic rising in him. But we got through it! We got through four! We have two at the top of our list and at least one more to visit.

Weight Gain: Up 17 pounds from pre-pregnancy weight. Pretty much on target.

Clothes: I bought two pairs of maternity pants and LOVE them. So much more comfortable than the belly band and regular jeans at this point, but I still make them work when I feel like it too. I bought a couple of shirts and since the weather is changing I can soon wear Tracie’s hand-me-down maternity sweaters. So I have a nice little stock! I didn’t think it would be this fun shopping for maternity wear but it is!

Symptoms: Lots of pressure. When I stand up sometimes I think “I have got to pee right this second”. Sometimes it’s just uncomfortable to walk period. Bending over is getting harder as is moving from a lying to a sitting position. At the end of the day I feel so big and tight I don’t want to move. I’m basically a slug after 6:30. Also I think I've finally reached the point where laying on my back is a no-go. I don't sleep on my back but I lounge in that position a lot. Doc said my body would tell me when it's time stop and lately I've felt pressure in my chest when I lie that way so I think my body is telling me "hey, stuff a pillow under there and get some extra support, girl".

Movement: Lots of it and getting harder! I still love it though. The only time I didn’t care for it was last week at work, I got a kick so hard and so LOW I thought for a second I wet myself. The horror. Saturday morning he was partying a little too hard and Chris accidentally SAW him move. Freak out ensued. That was probably the most uncomfortable I've been with his movements. Chris was starting to worry: "You look like you're in pain. Should I call your mom? Should we call the doctor??" Of course now if I DIDN'T get the crap kicked out of me I'd worry.

Cravings: Still nothing weird. But last week I woke up one morning and seriously thought I was going to have to go to Publix before work and get a bottle of sparkling grape juice to drink. Well, I guess that's pretty weird. Mostly though I want chocolate and lots of it. Brownies, chocolate chip cookies, candy bars, chocolate milk, whatever...

Sleep: Still sucks. Tossing and turning all night every night.

Stretch Marks: I thought Friday night my luck had run out and I had the beginning of one but alas it was gone the next morning. So again, so far so good with the body butter. [knock on wood knock on wood] I’m checking myself more carefully for them now. As tight as I feel sometimes I expect to any day now lift my shirt and see that I’m covered in them.

Missing: Ahi tuna and steak so rare it’s still trying to sell me Chick-Fil-A.

Nursery: We now have a painted nursery! The navy shade we chose is beautiful with the room's white chair rail and it’s even prettier in person than in pictures. The crib and the dresser we ordered arrived and I can't WAIT to put them together and see the room start to look like an actual nursery. I bought him his first piece of wall decor too. This print from Etsy. Love it. It’s slowly coming together!

Chris made this and posted it to facebook and THIS is why he's the frosting to my cupcake:

Fall Fashion – My New Favorite Outfit

Hey yall!
You’re getting something today that NEVER happens over here at Two-Thirds Scarlett: An outfit post! Call it OOTD or What I Wore or whatever but today I’m linking up with Helene and Taylor for Blog Every Day in October (#Blogtober14).

Plaid Shirt: Forever 21 (similar)
Maternity Skinnies: Old Navy
Basic Tank: Target
Leopard Flats: Target (similar)
Clock Necklace: Earthbound Trading Company (similar)

I’ve been digging plaid lately and searched and searched for the perfect classic plaid shirt. I ordered one from Forever 21 but when it arrived I was sorely disappointed to find that it swallowed me whole, pregnant belly and all. Wah. So I went in-store to switch it for another size but ended up finding one that I liked even more. And it’s my perfect plaid. Comfy material and classic colors. I paired it with a white tank, my new maternity skinnies, my absolute favorite flats and the clock necklace my parents got me for Christmas.

Ta da! My new favorite, definitely fall outfit!

PS.  Major props to all the full-time fashion bloggers who let someone take awkward pictures of them outside on the regular.

Ten on Tuesday - TWD, A Fall Craft, and A Mad Cat

one. Did anyone watch The Walking Dead premiere?! Best. Premiere. Ever. THEN did you watch Talking Dead afterward? There was a question for the creator tweeted in from CooperW. Our baby is so smart he’s tweeting in utero…

two. Speaking of which, today is our monthly appointment and the first part of the glucose test so we have to be at the hospital earlier than usual.  I was worried this morning would be awful because we were supposed to get severe weather in the middle of the night.  Luckily it weakened enough that I could actually attempt sleep through it.

three. I literally cannot even:

four. Amanda Bynes lost it again. Anyone surprised?  Her story is such a sad one.

five. I realized yesterday I was wearing an exact replica of an outfit I wore when I was 16. Hot pink top, jeans, and my trusty black and pink Vans. Except the top and jeans weren't maternity when I was 16...

six. ALL of our shows we waited so patiently for are in full swing now! American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, and Ghost Hunters rejoined our lineup this past week!

seven. I’m not much of a crafter but I really want to do this!
eight. I got to see what the invitation to my baby tea will look like yesterday! Speaking of which, for my non-southern friends, do yall know what a "tea" is as opposed to a "shower"?

nine. I keep forgetting we're going to Gatlinburg in less than three weeks! Bring on the changing leaves, crisp air, and free fudge samples!!!

ten. My face when Chris asks me to get off the couch for any reason after 6:30:
