Barefoot and Pregnant in the Kitchen

Fridays are one of those days where I always want the house to be at least tidied by the end of the day… there’s just something so nice about going into the weekend with a clean house. Anyway, today I’ve been cleaning and baking. Yep, barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen making cookies.

Gotta at least taste the cookie dough. Soo tasty.

Busting out of my apron… Yep. I’ll be 32 weeks on Sunday. 8 more weeks! Eek. It’s getting really, really close. TWO MONTHS AWAY! Well, two months if he decides to come on time. Two hot months. Two really, really hot months. I spent the last two afternoons at the pool, sitting in the shallow end letting the water just splash over me. Whenever I get in the water little Togglebuttons goes nuts and just starts moving around and going crazy. He’s still super active, moving around all the time and trying to kick his way out through the top of my belly. (Yay, this means he is still head down, so that’s awesome!) But I am getting anxious to meet my little boy. I think we’re pretty much prepared, or at least as prepared as I can be at this point, you know? I guess we will find out when he comes!

Ok. Also, on a completely unrelated note, has anyone ever tried the “No Shampoo” deal? I am kind of curious to try it because it seems like pretty much all shampoo dries out my hair really badly, even though I use plenty of conditioner- and it doesn’t seem to depend on the expensiveness of the shampoo, either. So, I might give it a try (maybe after the baby is born and I’m going to be staying at home alot, so if I end up with greasy hair no one will see….) So, if you’ve tried it, let me know how it worked for you.

  1. Love the apron! Sorry you are pregnant in the summer…if it’s any consolation, summer begins in April here so I kind of feel your pain. 🙂 I haven’t gone no-shampoo, but I have gone from washing my hair every day (which I did for years) to every other day and I could probably cut back another day. My hair has been really happy, and it saves a lot of time washing and drying it. Maybe start by adding an extra day between washing see how it goes?

  2. Louella was crazy in he pool too. I always thought it’s be relaxing and nice and I always ended up feeling crappy from a crazy baby kicking everything important to me. Stay cool Lady.

  3. you are a seriously adorable preggo!
    mmm cookie dough!
    I’ve also cut back on washing my hair to everyother day rather than everyday, and thinking about going one more day, but I think I might get some dry shampoo as well because sometimes it has a slight smell by the end of the 2nd day, but isn’t quite greasy yet. it’s taken about 2-3 months to get to this point..

  4. If you are talking about the baking soda water shampoo thing, then yeah, tried it for about 3 months. The first two weeks were um, gross, but they are right when they say that your hair “adjusts”. It definitely has a different texture but I was pretty happy with it. Well then we went on vacation and was using regular shampoo and conditioner and never went back. I might try it again. Let us know how you like it!
