3 Things Thursday: Week 8

The week has flown by and it’s already time for #3ThingsThursday – a wonderful link up hosted by Salma of The Write Balance, Raj of Pink Chai Living, and Nisha of Love Laugh Mirch!


It dawned upon me this week that I’m 29 weeks pregnant already. That means that today I have only 74 days left until the due date! And according to Google (I don’t leave anything up to my horrible math skills), I’m in my SEVENTH month. Holy pickle, when did that happen? All of this has got me thinking about the things that I need to get done before this baby comes along.

Kids Play Cafe

As someone who works evenings and is a stay at home mom during the day, I often find I work through the nights in order to find time to get the things I need to done and also find time to do the things I enjoy. Between all of the things that I need to do, I don’t really have a regular opportunity to work during the days.
