Sookie-cat & plastic ice cream cones
I woke up to find the kitties curled into balls, sleeping at my feet.
Chadu says I look like a mom in this picture. Not sure what that means, but my hair is unbrushed & my glasses are crooked.
More plastic ice cream cones (bubbles are inside them!)
I can’t dye my hair whilst pregnant. My blonde roots are majorly growing out!
I am becoming a pastry-making master. I made gobs for the first time ever.
I altered the cover of my planner to include the thought bubble. Kittens love Flight of the Conchords.
Jack being cute in the window.
More blonde roots. Ack!
Sookie-cat wanted to know where babies come from.
Baby books & comic books.
Chadu is painting our rooms
More cupcakes! I made these for a 4th of July gathering.
Hot chocolate & toasted-coconut marshmallows.
My new favourite pregnancy food – watermelon! I never even liked watermelon before I was pregnant.
Sookie-cat likes the mirror.
Pumpkin, Chadu’s mom’s cat.

Trying to take a picture of my baby bump.
Little silver baby shoes & tiny teddy bear slippers!
Oh! & Chadu’s birthday was on the 16th. My brother & my sister-in-law made the best birthday card ever for him lol

My pregnant belly:
Like I’ve said, I’m still waiting on a proper baby bump. I’m about 19 weeks and, right now, I just look like I have a beer belly. I can’t wait ’til Baby gets bigger and I can start feeling him or her move around!
I had a temporary creative lull when it came to posting blog entries, or doing anything productive, really. (Perhaps I’ll blame it on the pregnancy.) I’ve been mostly lazy & sleepy lately. But I’ve recently started a new exercise routine & I think I’m gaining some energy and inspiration back. As for my pregnancy, things are going well! I hope to find out in a few weeks if it’s a boy or girl! I’m still waiting on a proper, visible baby bump though. In other news, I bought myself a Batman shirt. Yay!
This Smashing Pumpkins onesie. (Sooo getting that for Baby!) ♥ Got a new blender and have been making smoothies every day. ♥ Making playlists (but moreso, naming playlists.) ♥ Josh Harris “liked” one of my facebook statuses the other day.

I love seeing how other people live. I especially love seeing photos of people’s bedrooms and work spaces. So here are some photos of my bedroom/work space. Mostly, just the work space area. If I were to show the rest of my bedroom, you’d just be looking at a bed, an exercise bike, and piles of clothes. The work space has gotten a bit mussy lately. Lots of random items all over the place.
You will always find sweets in my room.
A close-up of my inspiration board. I’ve had the same things on the board for forever. I want to switch it up soon!
Baby, bunny ears, and a note from Chadu.
Pens! Mostly glittery gel pens.
