It's 2 am...

Friday, February 6, 2015
...In your car. windows down, you pass my street the memories start.
Anyone else start singing that?
Alright, bear with me here because it's almost 2 am and I have no clue as to why I'm still awake.
Okay yes I do, it's because of the child inside me but I blame everything on her these days and maybe that's why she hasn't come yet. Because her mama is talking behind her back.
How rude of me.
But while we're at it, "she" had me craving a peanut butter, chocolate, banana, and maybe even a hint of white chocolate milkshake around midnight tonight.
I seriously considered driving around to find something that would satisfy that craving.
But I didn't.
Instead I got out the blender and mixed up creamy peanut butter, a frozen banana, milk, and oreo pudding mix. Yes, pudding mix. 
Before you go judging me, just try it.
And drink it in a matter of 15 minutes or less, otherwise your milkshake will turn into a pudding like consistency... ha!

Alright on with it...

I made mini BBQ chicken pizzas tonight and they were quite delicious.
I should probably blog about them.
Speaking of which... have you looked at the new recipes going on over here lately?
You should

I cannot stop wondering what our little girl is going to look like!
It's driving me nuts.
If she looks anything like me she'll have lots of curly hair, big blue eyes, and extremely chubby cheeks.
I've watched this video I made for my mama quite a few times lately.
I had quite the round little face!

I've developed a severe case of restless leg syndrome and I'm done with it.
It seriously makes me so frustrated.
I've resorted to taking baths every single night because of it.
My little lady loves bath time.
She splish splashes around in my stomach and I get a kick out of watching the water ripple when I'm not the one doing it. 

Some friends of mine threw me a surprise baby shower last weekend.
We got so lucky with such great friends here.
I got ready to go to an "early dinner" with a few other couples.
Hunter was sick so I wasn't even sure if we'd end up going.
But he then puts on a nice shirt... a nice shirt?
That should have already given it away.
So we get to the house, I walk downstairs and hear "surprise! happy baby shower!"
I have never ever had a surprise party in my life!
It was so much fun and I'm just so grateful for the wonderful people in my life.

I had my 38 week appointment yesterday.
It was depressing.
Absolutely nothing new. Ugh.
So I went and walked around all of Target and Ikea.
Because if I'm going to go for a walk trying to induce labor it might as well be entertaining too.
I definitely had some braxton hicks and a sore back but this babe is taking her sweet time.

I'm really emotional these days.
Like realllyy emotional.
I've done pretty well staying stable throughout this pregnancy, but these past few weeks have gone down the drain.
I cry. And I cry a lot. Over some things that make sense, and others that really really don't.
I actually have more thoughts on this topic that should be shared.
I'll try to come up with an organized post about it though when I'm fed, bathed, and have slept.

My favorite place to hang out is in the nursery.
Hunter finds me in there a majority of the time when he gets home.
Doing... who knows what.
Anything and everything to give me a reason to be in there.
I have gone through our hospital bags twenty times... I need to stop that because I just keep adding more stuff that we probably don't need.
I did just make some cute bows for the crib!
I will dedicate a post completely to the nursery details but the only thing missing is the cushions on the rocking chair that happen to be in California.
And well you know, I can't post pictures unless there's cushions on the rocking chair ;)

Lastly... where the heck do I find a perfectly adorable, beautiful, and classy blessing dress that is everything I'm dreaming up in my head for less than $70.
Seriously though... WHERE?!
It's driving me nuts.

I finally figured out the whole bloglovin buzz.
Yeah, it's pretty great.
All my favorite blogs in one space?
I think that's all for now because I might actually be getting sleepy!
Pregnancy insomnia is a real thing my friends. Really.

All my love, 
Aleigh Joy


  1. I actually started singing "it's 2 am feeling like I just lost a friend and you know it ain't easy......" But yeah same thing basically. Hang in there! I can't wait to see my new niece!

  2. Try the store in Lehi called little things mean a lot. I know they have more expensive blessing gowns there but have a good range of prices. I bought my sons there for $40 about 4 years ago.
