my gosh i feel like i got hit in the face with a brick today. i. feel. so. tired. we stay up way too late every single night. jake and i have turned into these crazy night owls--it's bad, bad news. last night we were up until 2:30 AM just talking talking away. we discussed future job situations, life, children, goldie and how freaking cute she is, food, motivation, traveling, our bodies, our anniversary, money... you name it, we talked about it. then finally, we conk out. it's like we didn't even finish our conversation (not that there was any real order to it anyway... not even really a end or a beginning). i just remember being like, "jake, do you get what i'm saying?" and he says, "yep." then he's out. and then i'm out. and then we're out. and before i know it i'm waking up to play with goldie girl. all day i've felt so lethargic; it probably has to do with the weather too. it's gray, rainy and chilly. quick note: i'm watching jeopardy (ew i don't even know why. the show just makes me feel incredibly stupid), they just referred to pregnancy as a condition. kind of odd, if you ask me. i feel like pregnancy is more of a state of mind. ha! THINK POSITIVE. so back to my point: i am a night owl and i have to stop it. i remember right before i had goldie, i was so exhausted that i would go to bed at 10 pm and feel so refreshed the next day. it's hard during the summer because jake doesn't get home until late from work, so of course i want to stay up and see him. ahhh jake. probably couldn't love him more than i do right now. he's been very thoughtful lately. like last night, he told me after dinner (a late one, mind you) to go do my jobs (brush teeth, wash face, etc.) and he would clean up the kitchen. the little things are what mean the most to me, and he knows that. i was SO thankful! i've been cooking like crazy these days because of the recipe blog-- new recipes, new experiments.. i feel like i'm always in the kitchen. so it really meant a lot to me that he offered to do that. our anniversary is on wednesday... 3 years already. what a trip! i suck at life and forgot to mention my love's birthday that was at the beginning of this month. he is such a gem. if you've never met jake, you're seriously missing out-- he is hilarious, entertaining, loving, kind, generous, giving, honest, and such a good dad. watching him love goldie makes me love him even more. anyway, i just feel very thankful for my life and the things that i've been blessed with. i appreciate the simplicity that i feel knowing that i have a healthy baby, a hard-working and loving husband, and my beliefs. these are the things that truly give me peace and happiness. so happy anniversary to us. here's to many more. and i'm seriously going to stop going to sleep so late.. at least i'm going to try. have a great day.
