Actually, I wasn’t telling the whole truth when I said my mom didn’t make anything from scratch, because I just made French toast this morning from the memory of my mom making it for me as a kid. David was impressed because he’d never had anyone make French toast for him before and felt like he was getting a fancy breakfast. And I was quite proud of myself because I’d never made it before, was simply going off memory and my knowledge of what French toast should taste like, and it came out really tasty!
Yesterday, I had my 32 week appointment at the birth center. Once again, everything looked (and sounded) healthy. I am so thankful for this healthy pregnancy!
My husband’s cousin and his wife are expecting a little boy due around the beginning of November and they’ve had a very difficult pregnancy fraught with complications. This is the miracle child they gave up trying to conceive several years ago. I would really appreciate if you would pray for the health of mother and child over the next month.
I just received a new book today from the Catholic Company reviewer program: The Church and New Media. I have heard so many great things about this book that I can’t wait to read it. I just wrote a review on Weightless by Kate Wicker a few days ago, so I was surprised to get this new book in the mail so quickly!
I spent most of the day with Kendra of The Nerdy Wife. I never thought I would meet a fellow blogger in real life (although I can’t really imagine why I would think that, I did meet my husband online after all), but this is the third time we’ve met up and it’s so great to have made a friend in a new city. We went to a couple thrift stores today and I found a really great grey sweater (new with tags still on!).
If there are any pregnant mamas out there suffering from heartburn, you have to get heartburn tea! It is a miracle worker. I know that there are some medications that doctors say you can take, but I haven’t wanted to take any chances with medicine while pregnant, so I’ve just been suffering through it. I wish I had discovered heartburn tea earlier, but at least I don’t have to suffer any longer!
