An Infinite Summer

That ain’t no etch-a-sketch…


…this is one doodle that can’t be un-did, home skillet.

I am 12 weeks along.

Due end of January-ish.

Due to the pure grace of God, genetics, and sheer force of will, I have not yet thrown up.

The smell of the fridge and freshly done laundry grosses me out.

I have been living on cereal, french fries, and anything carb-related.

My dreams are a psychotic mash-up of Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries, Friday Night Lights, and The Walking Dead characters, and we are always trying to get out of some terrifying situation.

I have only had one mental breakdown in regards to none of my clothes fitting when I really “should just be barely starting to show”.

So that’s what I’ve been up to lately – being a Professional Pregnant Person.  Not working full time has been the single greatest thing that has ever happened to me during this particular phase of life.  I have had a hard time coping with the fact that I am just too danged tired to DO anything, but then I finally decided to embrace the fact that all I really want to do is marathon FNL, cross-stitch, read, and eat bread – and that fact that I CAN.

So, a shout out to Trey for already being the best baby daddy there ever was, and a shout out to my in-laws for letting me eat their entire supply of cup-a-noodles.

Besides the fact that I am thrilled to have the rest of the year to shamelessly quote Juno and Baby Mama, we are completely ecstatic, and cannot wait to meet this tiny human!


  1. i love that you & brissa are pregnant at the same time. i only hate that i’ll be gone when the babies arrive. FRIES!! um hi, those dreams sound AWESOME. i hope mr. fitz is in them because helloooo he is gorgeous. we should talk about FNL. soon. sarah, it’s the absolute best. i love a lot of tv shows, but FNL wins. also, the series finale is the best series finale that has ever graced the world of television.

  2. I would love to have dreams about Tim Riggins. Have you watched gossip girl? Also a great, not at all cheesy or fake, drama series :) congrats again! Keep eating those carbs and growing a baby!

  3. Being exhausted is one reason i’m terrified of having another. I don’t know how I could possibly care for our ball of energy with so little energy of my own. Congratulations though! not throwing up is an awesome accomplishment!

  4. Congrats!! I missed your last post! You will be such a cute mama!

    Remember when Aaron Wade threw up in our classroom in 5th grade and I almost cried? Worst day. Don’t throw up. Sip mint tea!


  5. I am so excited for you two!!! You’re so close to the first trimester finish line! You can do it without throwing up!! It’s possible!! But the being exhausted all the time thing is totally ridiculous.
