Long time no post. I keep telling myself I will make blogging a regular habit and it never happens. I used to blog all the time on my previous blog, but not so much with this one. Life is busy! Let’s chunk this up into some sections to update!
On Friday, I will be 25 weeks pregnant. Time sure is flying by, which I did not think was going to happen. When I first found out I was pregnant in March, November seemed SO FAR AWAY, but no, it’s not. It’s less than 4 months away, which is a little scary. We still have SO much to do to get ready for our little nugget. We are having our baby shower next month back home and I am so, so, so excited for that! Until then, I will be enjoying the great parts of pregnancy (baby wiggles!) and trying to enjoy the uncomfortable parts.
I’ve had a friend staying with me most of the summer and she’s my eating partner. I’ve been using her sourdough starter to make all sorts of tasty treats including waffles, bread, and pretzels. We’ve also been eating out at really great restaurants. We went to the No Frill Bar & Grill last night and got the largest order of nachos I’ve ever seen. They were fairly epic, and certainly the best nachos I’ve had in Norfolk, top 3 overall anywhere.
So Norfolk is still an adjustment. Yesterday, the “feels like” temperature was 104 degrees. No thank you. I’m still adapting to the aspect of military life that my husband doesn’t come home every night. Our last duty station was recruiting, so it was a Monday-Friday sort of job, but my husband’s “normal” job is not like that and requires deployments (both long and short) and duty every few days so he isn’t home. It’s very weird for me, but I’m figuring it all out!
