Favorites for Friday

So, I’ve been a bit of a Debbie Downer lately. I guess it’s mostly expected and forgiven, but it’s still annoying to be around someone that’s all Eeyore-like in life views for any extended amount of time. So I’m kicking myself in my maternity pants-clad butt and am finding some happy things to be happy about. So why not do a Friday Favorites post? Yay, favorite things! Here’s what’s putting a smile on my face lately:

1. Massive bags of frozen veggie blends from Costco. Seriously, why do I keep on forgetting that this is the easiest snack/part of dinner possible? Dump some veggies in a bowl, throw on some butter, salt, and pepper, then nuke until hot. So cheap, easy, and guilt-free.


2. Speaking of butter, this Buddah butter dish. Hulk just recently complained how long it’s taking to spread butter on veggies and stuff. And by “stuff” I mean all of the muffins I’ve been banking. So, we need to get a butter dish, since I don’t like having the butter sit on a plate on the counter. I just drop stuff in the unprotected butter all the time, like pans and elbows.  Anyway, this butter dish is awesome, especially when you say, “Buddah butter” out loud repeatedly and giggle.



Buddah buttah!

3. Freaking people out by doing very un-pregnant lady things. Last night I was feeling a bit pluckier than usual, so we went out to a bar. It’s very amusing to be seen at a bar nearly 10 months pregnant, dancing to dub step and sneaking sips of your husband’s Bud Light. I’m sure the management was thrilled at how I really brought to fruition their dreams of the hip, trendy bar they’ve always dreamed of managing. And while I was there I heard a remix of The Little Mermaid’s “Part of Your World.” No joke. Then today I went to the gym to lift some heavy things to see if that would induce labor. It didn’t, but people were giving me cautious looks. After the gym I went to Target to pick up some groceries and the lady checking me out was six months along herself. She asked me when I was due and I said, “Tuesday.”


That cheered me up so much. Good lord, people. I’m pregnant, not helpless, or dead.
