3 completely unrelated thoughts for you on this lovely Monday morning...
1. It's officially fall, but don't tell Arizona that, because it doesn't care. It doesn't exist here. Arizona doesn't care that it happens to be my favorite season. It also doesn't care that all forms of heat have literally become unbearable. Oh no. It doesn't care at all. It's just going to keep being bloody hot, probably up until the day I deliver. And I'll continue to hide out in my air conditioned house with my pumpkin spice candle lit, and pretend it's crisp outside.
BTW the high is 100 degrees today. One. Hundred. Degrees. on September 24th...
2. I have a severe iron deficiency when I'm pregnant. It's happened all four times. When I was growing Ethan this really freaked my doctor out, and he shoved all these nasty iron supplements at me that made me super nauseated, then poked my finger to test my blood at every appointment, and guess what? It didn't get any better. Then I deliver, let a few super anemic weeks pass, and all is well. Unfortunately, severe iron deficiencies come with weird cravings. Basically, all I want to do it chew on powdery substances or ice. Not eat. Just chew. And it could be anything, from Pixie sticks, to flour, to (admittedly) silty dirt. I know, weird. The only thing that helps is chewing on pixie sticks, or crushed ice. And since I don't want 18 cavities the next time I go to the dentist, I basically chew on ice all day long. Did you know that Sonic has the best crushed ice on the planet? It's true. Did you further know that you can buy an entire bag of their ice? So guess who has a giant bag of sonic ice in her freezer right now.
Me, that's who.
3. I am in love with this dress from Gap's Maternity line. And guys, I do not fall in love with maternity clothes. I hate maternity clothes. I mean I loathe and despise them. But this dress is so fabulous that I actually look forward to wearing it, and I'm kind of sad that once I have the baby I won't be able to wear it anymore. (Not sad enough that I wouldn't jump at the chance to be done tomorrow, but still) Pretty please Gap can you make a non-maternal version of this frock with it's amazing collar and luxuriously soft double knit fabric?
