A "P"ost for Wednesday

My sister, Christy, was recently tagged to list 10 things she loves using a particular letter. I was afraid that she might assign me "Q" so I hesitated for a day or two before relenting. I love posts like this because it gives you a tiny glimpse into bloggers personalities and it's always fun to see what you might have in common! So I emailed her this morning and asked for a letter....She gave me "P."

1. Purple...if we are going to be really specific, I am loving "Lightly Lilac" right now; it's the color we painted the baby's room. It turned out exactly as I had envisioned it.

2. Peanut Butter...this has been a HUGE weakness during this pregnancy. When I say weakness, I mean all I need is a spoon and a jar of Jif. I've been known to make an extra grocery run in the middle of the week just so I can get my fix.

3. Poppyseed Chicken...a family favorite for sure. Before I moved to TN, I would go over to Christy's house on Wednesday nights/Poppyseed Chicken Night for the stuff. We actually had it last night and I'm so glad there are leftovers! It's so yummy!

4. Prenatal appointments...I love going to the doctor to hear my little girl's heartbeat. I have one more 2 week appointment and then we are in the final stretch and I get to go every week. In fact, I went yesterday and her head is down and the doctor said she wouldn't be surprised if I have already started to dilate a bit and I go early.

5. Pretty books...okay, I do judge a book by it's cover. If it has a pretty cover, then I'll pick it up for sure.

6. Pajamas (aka "jammies")...I love getting a new pair of jammies and love even more winding down at night and getting comfortable.

7. Planning...I feel the need to have a plan. I like to know when, where, why and how. I can be spontaneous as long as I know what is going to happen! :)

8. the sister, Steve, Jessica, Samuel and Benjamin. The most beautiful family I know which consists of the most amazing mother and friend, a kind and gentle husband, a beautiful and generous daughter, a quiet, yet, loving middle child and a wild, funny little brother.

9. Pedicures...I need to get one before "she" arrives. I'm going to be really embarrassed in the hospital if I don't.

10. Purposeful Living...I have learned over the course of the past year that this life is not about me; it's about Who I live for. If I'm not doing that, I'm not living; I'm existing, going day to day with no purpose. With every day that passes and as we prepare to meet our little girl, I want nothing more than to live each day with purpose. What am I doing and Who am I doing it for? I want to be the best daughter of the King I can be. If I'm doing that, then my other responsibilities and relationships will benefit, especially with my husband and my daughter.

Want a letter? Let me know in your comment and I'll send one your way!

Happy Wednesday!

What a cute list. I agree with the pedicure!They are really fun. P was a good letter for you. And I think a lavender room for the baby will be beautiful.Can't wait to see the pics.
You can assign me a letter but don't give me Q either!:)

Melissa said...

What an adorable list.This is such a cute idea. I also love these types of posts they tend to remind us of small things we forget. I will take a letter also.

Hi Sarah~
Your "P" list was so fun to read! I agree with you about judging books by their covers, I do the same thing! Oh, and pajamas! I'm kind of addicted to those! :)

It is so exciting for you that you are getting so close to meeting your little one! I remember how that felt! :) I would love a letter, but maybe not "Q" or "Z"? (If you don't mind!) :) I hope you have a good night! :)

Sarah Mae said...

We are so much alike!

So girlie, looks like you and I are about on the same pace...who's gonna go first?! :)

When is your official due date again? Mine is March 7th.

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

Hi again Sarah~
The letter "S" is absolutely fine. Did you know that is the easiest letter to find things for in the game Scattergories? Yep, it's true! So I will make my list...have a great day! :)

Shannon said...

That was a great list! I have loved reading these all over blogland. It gives you a glimpse into each other's personalities. :)

Joy @ SAH Missionary said...

What is it about peanut butter and pregnancy? I was the exact same way. :) Maybe it's the need for extra protein?!
Thanks for the list!

Amy said...

great list! is the poppyseed chicken recipe posted anywhere?

sounds like fun--shoot a letter my way, please :)

Joanna said...

Love your list!

Beck said...

I had a peanut butter weakness during my pregnancy with Max too! I loved anything peanut butter, especially peanut butter milk shakes! And if the only thing that embarrasses you at the hospital is your need for a pedicure, you're doing good ;) That was a great list and I can't wait to see pictures of the nursery! I'll take a letter too!

Amber said...

I remember eating spoonfuls of peanut butter as a snack with my sister when we were little. Often while we took a break from roller skating. :-) So yummy!

My favorite craving when I was pregnant was pizza. I loved your post. Please send a letter my way. I look forward to blogging about it in a future post.
