Love ~ Hate ~ Summer

It’s no secret that summer is my favorite holiday. Summer means trips to the beach, but it also means flip-flops and tank tops. Now that I’m 6 months pregnant, I’m getting a lot of sympathetic comments like, “Oh, I’m so sorry that you’re pregnant all summer!” I usually laugh and respond that I have handled the heat well, mostly because I can walk around in leggings, tanks and flip-flops and not be judged. I actually sympathize with those who are pregnant all winter, because their life consists of long pants, sweaters, coats (*shudders*) and closed-toed “real” shoes.

Bonus ~ only in summer can you can dress like a giant blueberry and accent it with a white cardigan and white pants!

Because, let’s be honest! I’m going to be sleep deprived, and if you’ve ever met me, you realize just how scary the beginning of this sentence really is.

Plus, my handsome Fred is definitely done with the itchies. As much as I love the warm weather, this dry season has made him quite miserable. I already spoil him rotten, but the added maternal instincts and hormones make me want to shake my fist at what causes his pain. Unfortunately that means summer has to leave us eventually.


“Nooooooo more itchies!”

For now, I’m going to enjoy the end of summer but actually look forward to the changing seasons. The end of summer, which usually brings sadness, is bringing the hope of something new…


…the joy of finishing a baby room…

…and the anticipation for our own little monkey.

And my husband is ready for football.

He’s a Redskins fan, shhhh….

    ๐Ÿ™‚ I was only ever pregnant in the winter, so I don’t know how you feel, but I’m so glad you’re doing well – you look great! Did you guys have that power outage from the derecho at the end of June? I think being pregnant during that would have tossed me over the edge!
    I love your first sentence ….summer is your favorite holiday ๐Ÿ™‚ It sure would be nice if we could all agree to skip all the other holidays and just celebrate them all over the summer!
    I’ll pray that you get a good sleepy baby and are never very sleep deprived!

      Oh my goodness, I definitely called summer a holiday instead of a season. Preggo brain strikes again! I read this thing several times before I posted it. That’s okay though, because summer IS like a holiday to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

      We did lose power after that vicious storm. Luckily my husband was at the beach with his dad, and I packed up the dogs and we crashed their father/son weekend. It was so nice to have somewhere to go that had electricity…it was like evacuating a war zone, I couldn’t find a gas station that had power for a few hours!

      “Iโ€™ll pray that you get a good sleepy baby and are never very sleep deprived!” That is the BEST prayer I could ask for!!

  2. Those little monkey outfits are so cute!

  3. Wow that journey is so exciting! And I love that blue and white number. =>
