Sometimes things that aren’t the most attractive have a wonderful side to them as well. It’s never good to judge a book by it’s cover, after all. Which is why I’m okay with the below unattractive, yet wonderful things.
Numero uno: the bloating I currently am experiencing by the end of each day. I wake up with a fairly flat stomach. Sure it doesn’t start off as lean and defined as I like because of the extra weight I had to put on for conceiving, but I still am happy with it and believe I look good enough. But by 5:00 pm that all changes when my stomach seems to explode. I look like I put on 10 lbs over the course of a day and get even more soft and poochy looking. It’s not attractive, but since it’s part of those crazy pregnancy things that happen early on I will not complain. Oh, I cannot believe I am posting these! This is pure honesty and love for showing you guys everything right here!
Numero dos: food that looks like puppy chow but tastes like heaven. I made the recipe for Almost Meatless Sloppy Joes that Katie posted on her blog the other night. Soooooo good! They taste just like sloppy joes, but have veggies, beans, and other good stuff in them. They are hearty, healthy, and tasty. I enjoyed leftovers for lunch today. Not too easy on the eyes, but very easy on the palate.
Numero tres: our kitchen. Right now it is in disarray and I am not loving it. The house came with this huge block of cabinets that just made the kitchen and dinette area feel extremely small. Peter decided enough was enough and took them down today. We have some cleaning and organizing left to do, but it already feels so much more open and I love it. Now I just have to wait for the hideous tile to leave.
Numero cuatro: begging. Begging and whining are two things I find horribly unattractive…which is why I am hoping you won’t make me do them. I will be heading out of town a lot during the month of June – to Indianapolis June 10-13 and then to Daytona Beach June 18-26. I am hoping that some of you wonderful ladies would be willing to do guest posts for me during that time. I don’t need anything long or fancy, unless you have a more thorough topic you want to discuss here on Faith, Fitness, & Fun. I was thinking guest posts with things like the following:
- a favorite recipe
- a favorite workout
- a quick Q & A about you and your blog (I will send you questions if you want)
- a favorite book
- your music playlist
- any topic you want to discuss (well, that I approve…I won’t have you talking about your granny’s panties on here!)
I was also thinking of putting together a few motivational pieces that just have inspiring quotes, song lyrics, pictures, etc in them. If you don’t want to do an entire post, but have a quote you love or some other inspirational picture/song/etc you want to share shoot me an email with it please! Okay…I’m going to get unattractive now. Please please please please please please please please please please!!!!!!! But see, it’s wonderful too because it is helping a blogger friend out! And I’m even giving you a few weeks to decide and get something to me. How can you say no to that kind of thoughtfulness? 😉 Sooo…drop me an email if you’re interested!
I’ll be back tomorrow with the shenanigans from tonight. A wedding, engagement, heck I don’t even know but some kind of shower for my friend. She is having like 10 so I don’t know what this one is called. It should be a good enough time though. Peace!
