An Uncomplicated Life Blog: High Five for Friday!

High Five for Friday!

It has been a WEEK, y'all!

From failed baby-flipping to creating new birth plans with new doctors at hew locations to early labor contractions to celebrating birthdays and Mother's Day, we're just worn out around here. I guess that's how babies work: right when you think you're all situated and have everything under control, they throw you for a loop and you're left scrambling making last minute plans to cover your bases.

Silly babies!

Regardless, I'd still call it a great week! Here are some of my favorite moments:

1) By all accounts, it's looking like we're going to have a May baby! Not that I have anything against June, but we're pretty excited about the upgrade to a May due date.

2) I had a very special "first" Mother's Day thanks to my husband! The day followed a pretty disappointing failed medical procedure that resulted in EVERYTHING we had planned for baby boy changing. He went out of his way to make me feel special despite all the disappointment over the previous 24 hours, and I'm so thankful for him and all he did for me!

3) I may be super-pregnant, but I'm still managing to get four to five workouts in a week, so I still (kinda) have my sanity! I am also extremely thankful for this ability to move and use my muscles.

4) The weather cooled down in Dallas this week, so I was able to actually sit outside and read, work on my tan, blog, and of course play ball with these two cuties!

5) We celebrated Kirk's birthday this week! We kept things low-key and super-healthy with cheeseburgers, fried pickles, waffle fries, beer, and two different kinds of cake. You know, just gettin' fit for the summer season!

I hope everyone has a beautiful weekend! If you enjoy reading my blog, check out these other lovely ladies I link up with every Friday, too - they're fantastic bloggers!

  1. Popping over from the link up :) I admire you still working out whist being pregnant. I could barely get off the sofa with both of my pregnancies!

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks, Liane! Some days it's a real challenge but I try to remember how great I feel afterwards for that extra {literal} push to get out the door. Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for checking out An Uncomplicated Life Blog! :)

  2. Yay for May babies! I have a little May Flower myself, so I'm rather partial ;)

    1. Yay for May!!! I'm partial to their birthstone, the emerald. Although I love me some pearls too, and that's June... You know, because we get to pick the month our babies come based on birthstones :) Have a fantastic weekend Sara!

  3. After seeing the waffle for your Mother's Day brunch, I was hungry...and then you threw the A-MAZing looking burgers and fries at me! LOOKS.SO.GOOD! Glad I found you through the "Five on Friday" link-up...always nice to come across another Dallas blogger!

    1. Hi Leslie! What's the link to your blog? I'd love to check it out! And seriously - if you haven't been there before, go check out Good Friends (near White Rock Lake/Lakewood/Old Lake Highlands). REALLY good food and a super cute patio to boot!
