Adventures in Wellness – Pregnancy is not easy…

Today was a bit of a rough one… walking to appt in humidity, low blood sugars before lunch that had me super out of sorts, some general anxiety (mama’s, surely this is normal?!) and just feeling pretty drained… humidity is not my favorite and it definitely hits me a little harder when I’m this pregnant!

The good news is, tomorrow is a new day and so tonight is just being spent relaxing and snuggling with this little lovebug (because she’s the MASTER at relaxing and reminding me it’s IMPORTANT, even if there IS a trillion things to do!) and so between her friendly reminder and my husband handling dinner, I’m feeling a bit better and regrouping.

That humidity though… whewwwww. No joke!

Happy National Rescue Dog Day!

🐾 Show me yours and I’ll show you mine! 🐾

😍

Happy National Rescue Dog Day – show me your sweet rescues, and be sure to give your sweet babes extra kisses and snuggles today!

After all, who really rescued who? 💕

This is our VERY sweet black lab/hound mix Roxy – she is such a love, she has her crazy moments like any other dog but she is such a sweet little love bug, she more than makes up for those few crazy moments!

She is a huge snuggle bug and contact baby, and I sure ain’t complainin’!

Hoppy Easter!

This would be a little cuter if I was a little further along (or actually ready to pop 😉), but I still love it!

Hoppy Easter everyone! So hard to believe next Easter we will have our own little “bunny” 💕

I am so excited to begin new traditions, and to experience holidays through a child’s eyes… this always adds several layers of magic to them, I feel.

Do you have little ones?

 

Factbomb Friday – She is NOT JUST A DOG

She is NOT just a dog.

She is my baby. Soon, she won’t be the ONLY baby, but she will STILL be my baby. The very night I told Dave I was pregnant, I made him promise me we’d never be those people who cast their pup aside. It will be hard, the baby will need a lot of attention… but we will make it work because Roxy also deserves love, affection, and attention.

She will STILL be a priority, her needs will still matter, and we won’t love her ANY less. In fact, I’m pretty sure we will love her even MORE watching her fiercely protect that tiny little human.

Yesterday, two different people I am friendly with had to put their fur babies down, and my heart broke for them, of course. But one of them had tons of love, support and understanding, and it warmed my heart, and I was grateful she had that… the other one had people left and right telling her it’s just a dog, and it made my heart break for her even more so.

Why are we telling people how they should feel? Why are we minimizing their loss?

If you think it’s “just” a dog, maybe you shouldn’t have one… just my .02, and since it’s Friday and I’m feeling generous, you may keep the change 😉
