Weekending | 31 Weeks Pregnant & a BOGO Deal

It's Monday. And while I am one of the lucky ones who gets Summer's off from work, Monday still affects me. My husband goes back to work after a day and a half off (yes... he works Saturday mornings. yuck) and it just still feels like Monday, even when I don't have to work. Seriously, whoever invented Monday's should be locked up.
I am officially 31 weeks pregnant and only (approximately) 9 weeks away from meeting our little one! That's single digits, people.
As of this weekend, sleeping is still my only real struggle. Some nights are fine and I sleep like a rock. Other nights, however, my legs ache and refuse to get comfortable no matter how I position them. The only one who benefits from my lack of sleep is Izzy, who uses my movements as her opening into baby belly snuggle time. How can I be expected to roll over again when there's puppy/baby snuggles happening? It can't be done.Thankfully, during the day I don't have any of these pains or discomforts.
Cravings; I am still all about the cold and crunchy things. Slushies/snow cones. Frozen grapes. Crushed ice when it's hot and plain water isn't cutting it. And fresh veggies, which have been a favorite all along.
Activity; Baby has his/her own wake/sleep schedule. Which I would love to continue after birth, but we couldn't possibly be that lucky. We get to feel the most kicks and wiggles after I eat and right before I go to bed. My husband also gets to feel quite the action when he comes to bed (I'm usually already asleep) and that is his favorite time of the day.
Other stuff; We had our breastfeeding class on Wednesday and while I had already read a lot of what was covered, I am happy to have my husband full of knowledge that I will probably need to be reminded of when I'm exhausted and frustrated.

In general, our weekend was pretty uneventful. We were supposed to go to the zoo on Sunday with my family to celebrate my Dad's birthday (which is today... happy birthday, Dad!), but there was a chance of storms so we're postponing that trip. The husband and I ended up just going out to breakfast, hitting up a used book store (because Baby needs more books) and Babies R Us, where I was tempted to buy all of the baby things, but instead just added a few more items to our registry. I hated registering for our wedding shower, but lord help me, I could add things to our baby registries (Babies R Us and Amazon) all day.

Other than that, our weekend was full of laziness and laundry. The joys of adulting!

Before I go, I have something to make Monday just a little bit better. In celebration of my Etsy shop, and the brand new prints that were just added this weekend, I am offering a BOGO deal on all of my prints this week. Interested? Head over to my Instagram (feel free to follow me while you're there so we can be #instabesties) and you will find the coupon code you need for the BOGO deal.
