You Oughta Know

I've had about eleventy billion post ideas this week, but haven't been able to complete a single one of them. My brain has been all over the place and even my boss commented on how absent minded I've been. Don't worry, she was laughing at the time.
Anyway, I've decided to totally punk out on writing anything deep today, and instead I'm linking up with Kenzie for "We Want to Know Wednesday."
Ready? Set? GO.
What were you doing the last time you had a really good laugh?
Actually, I was sitting on the table in my obstetrician's office. Stewart was making fun of a bump on my foot, calling it disgusting (it's a Ganglion cyst, no big deal), and for some reason the comments he was making were totally cracking me up. We were laughing so hard by the time the doctor came in that I almost couldn't calm myself down for the appointment. Then I kept trying to talk to the doc about serious stuff, like how you shouldn't get foot massages during pedicures while you're pregnant, and Stew just could not focus. Of course he had to wonder aloud why anyone would willingly touch my disgusting foot, anyway. This brought on a new round of hysterical laughter. I don't know why I think it's so funny when my husband makes fun of me, but honestly if you can't find humor in your flaws, you're not gonna make it.
What song always makes you happy when you hear it?
Oh, what a perfect opportunity to share one of my very favorite songs/videos from the past year! Dumb Ways to Die is a public service announcement campaign by Metro Trains in Australia to promote rail safety. It's hilarious, and almost immediately went viral at the end of last year. Sometimes when I'm in a bad mood I put it on and immediately cheer up. Come on, tell me this doesn't make you giggle. And if it doesn't, I fear you might be dead inside...  
What is your favorite room in your house and why?
I think I'd have to say our den/library. I love my book collection so much, and I'm seriously so proud of it (it's been a work in progress since kindergarten!) Sometimes I just wander in there to look at the books, organize them, straighten them, plan what I'm going to read next... I'm kind of book nerd if you haven't heard. This is the only picture I have with me at the moment, but we also have a beautiful corner desk in that room and an awesome vintage world map on the wall. Now all I need is an awesome leather chair and I think it will be complete!
Share something you are currently looking forward to:
Is it too cliché to say Thanksgiving? We always spend Thanksgiving with Stewart's family in Vancouver, and I look forward to it every year. Family, friends, food, fun... BUNCO! It's pretty amazing. Except last year my weekend was ruined by a stomach bug, but this time I feel healthy as a horse and my morning sickness seems to be mostly gone, so I plan to enjoy the holiday vomit-free! It doesn't take much to make me happy...
What never fails to put you in a good mood?
Knowing that Stewart will be there when I get home from work. He's been taking a lot of overtime shifts lately, and coming home to a dark, empty house just isn't the same as opening the door and knowing he's there waiting for me. I love the evenings when we make dinner together and have time to hang out before bed. Plus I hate sleeping in our house alone, alarm system or not. So on days I know Stew is not on shift, you'll usually find me in a pretty chipper mood.
Well, happy hump day my lovelies. I hope your week has been wonderful so far!

  1. Great answers and thanks for linking up this week Hope you'll come back. :)

  2. why aren't you allowed to get foot massages while getting pedicures while pregnant?!?!?!?! i'm almost done pregnancy #2 and i didn't know this!!!!!!

    1. Keep in mind I am not an expert, nor have I done extensive research on this subject. My information comes from my massage therapist (who is trained in prenatal massage) and my doctor. They both advised against foot massage during pregnancy because certain acupressure points in the feet are connected to the reproductive system, and aggravating them could potentially cause problems, including miscarriage (especially during the first trimester). You might be okay if the person is trained in prenatal massage and knows which points to avoid, but like I said my massage therapist won't touch a pregnant woman's feet. And for me it just isn't worth the risk. But, as I said, I'm no expert, and each woman should trust her own doctor and body to know what's best. :-)

  3. Eat the tube of superglue... Teach yourself how to fly... those are just a few of my favorites! Now I have it stuck in my head! I have the hardest time sleeping if Joel isn't next to me. I just can't fall asleep, so I can't imagine having him gone the entire night! Yeah for Stew being home!

  4. It's called pregnancy brain!! And it's totally real :)
    Thanksgiving with your hubs family sounds amazing! I can't wait to read about it!

  5. 1. I'm so sorry you're out of it right now. That's pregnancy brain for you!
    2. Are women never supposed to get foot massages during pregnancy or is that just you because of the bump on your foot?
    3. I'm SO JEALOUS of your library! It's my goal to have built in bookshelves with a ladder someday! :-)

  6. I actually had never seen the Metro ad (so sad as metro trains are actually in Melbourne, MY CITY) I had heard about it though. It is quite funny. Too bad their services are...not fun(ny).

  7. Total pregnancy brain!! I've heard it never comes back!!
    That sing is hilarious!! And you are so cute, I can tell how much you love your hubby!!

  8. That song is totally amusing. :) I'll admit, you had me worried that I might be dead inside. A lot of pressure to put on people to giggle! ;)

    I love that book shelf. I think when we redo our "office" I want to have a lot of book shelves in it.


Talk to me, Goose!
