An Uncomplicated Life Blog: High Five for Friday!

High Five for Friday!

Many of my favorite blogs do something called "High Five for Friday" where they recap five of their favorite things that happened during the week. So I'm jumping on the bandwagon, too!

The five greatest moments of the week:
1) Um, hello? I launched this blog! I futzed with the design for a good while, and finally decided that it didn't absolutely need to be perfect before I published the site. Also? I learned how to publish a site!

2) I was able to go shopping with a good friend, who is a teacher on spring break, and started making some headway on our nursery. Not only was it a blast to get out of the house, shop and have lunch with my girlfriend (which, upon quitting my job, was something that I thought I would have a lot more time to do... Not so!) but it's really fun to see my vision come together for our future baby boy!

3) I chopped off FOUR INCHES of hair! I realize guys don't understand the significance of this feat, but ladies, I know you get me. While I love long hair on some people, especially you lovely ladies that have thick hair, I can't pull it off. Mid-length is about the longest I can go before I just have a scraggly, sad pony tail. The results of my stylist's chopping (and curling) skills:

4) I had my gestational diabetes test and 27 week checkup with my midwives on Wednesday. Upon drinking my "orange drink", baby boy started to straight up BOX my small intestine, so I think he liked it even less than I did! We'll get the test results back soon, but the midwife did manage to make my ENTIRE WEEK. Yeah, the whole thing. As she pulled up my shirt to squeeze that gel stuff  all over my belly for the Doppler machine to get baby's heartbeat, she exclaimed, "You have the cutest pregnant tummy! It's all baby. It's the shape that will go back to your pre-pregnant shape right away! I can tell you work out, you look simply fantastic."

Now, she may very well tell all her patients this to make them feel good, and that's a-ok with me. But she said it to me, and made me feel good about all the workouts I've been keeping up with while preggo and reinforced the results I'm hopeful for after baby, so HIGH FRIGGIN FIVE to her!

5) "Mommy Monday" has been, by far, my most visited/viewed post. That makes me so excited, because it's also my favorite post to write/create and the bulk of my content surrounds mama's and pregnancy, so I'm happy it's popular with y'all, too. Expect a great mommy post on Monday! If you need some entertainment before then, this twitter handle is HILARIOUS.

Happy Weekend readers! I hope you're all enjoying spring (spring has sprung in Dallas, but if you're further north, I hope it's improving for you) and will enjoy some time with your loved ones this weekend. See ya next week when I'm officially in my third trimester!


  1. High five for the fridays. When i saw that then i am searching those five important things. But i not find that for my site. Here is all those things from which we can easily get more things about that working which i saw here.

  2. Bitlife is an all around made game. One that shows engineers that care about the final result. It is amusing to play and the alleged grown-up humor is very clever. I do feel that occasionally your decisions don't prompt where you may figure they would. Maybe there is more arbitrary to the game at that point absolutely characterizing your life through decisions. Having said that, that is more genuine to a real existence test system as things get tossed at you that you wouldn't expect, all things considered. One of the triumphs of PUBG is that you don't respawn, it's one life (aside from in the Arcade war mode). That implies everybody drops in with nothing aside from their garments. That is an extraordinary thing, since you can basically decide to keep away from the contention and accumulate, or make a plunge directly into the spots where the fight will be the fiercest on the off chance that you have blood desire. Veteran or not.
