14 Weeks

3 Comments

Time for a little 14 week check-in.

Our schedules have been crazy busy between work, other friends baby showers, holiday events and running. Everything has been great, I just feel like I could sleep three days straight from so much going on.

Bump watch continues. I’m still mixing pieces of my wardrobe with maternity wear. This dress from my regular clothes so I probably won’t be wearing it again for a while.

Me and Abby at her Holiday Brunch. She made some amazing food, mostly from Cooking Light and she may be featured in a future issue. 🙂

Running

I’ve been running slower, but still getting in some mileage. Rob and I got in an 18 mile run and I packed a water belt, which I haven’t done in years. The water fountains on the trail are turned off for winter so I wanted to make sure I had enough fluids on had. I got to refill it mid-way in the uptown Normal station.

Also, Rob and I got our 2012 Rock and Roll series medal in the mail. You get a medal if you run more than one Rock and Roll race in the same year. This one is for New Orleans, Chicago, and St. Louis.

Nursery

Our nursery progress is slow right now as we clear out our workout room and move it to the basement. The basement isn’t finished yet, but it won’t bother anything to have the workout room down there early. After we clear everything out, we will start getting into decorating mode once we know the gender.

First it’s time to pack up awards and medals. It was a trip down memory lane looking at awards, first award ever, first overall female, first age group in marathon…..all of them are so special and bring back memories.

Our medals, I even shared one whole hook for Rob’s medals which are on the right. Aren’t I generous? 😉 We will definitely have to get a better display going when our new workout room is finished.

I can’t wait until we have nursery decorating in progress and I can post updates on Pinterest and Instagram.

Well that’s it for now…more to come!

  1. Are you going to find out the gender or wait until baby arrives?? I have slowly been working on our nursery too, I am just having a really hard time decision making these days 😉 Can’t wait to see how you decide to decorate!
