Pet Peeves

Hello, Hello!

Our temps are finally cooling and we are only going to be in the 70s today!  Yay!  I’ll take 79 degrees any day over 85 degrees!

This week is a pretty busy week as Keith turns 30 on Thursday.  I feel like I have so many little things left to do before then, so today after work I’m on a mission to finish up his birthday “stuff”.  Tomorrow I’m going to attempt to bake his a yellow cake as requested.  One of my goals for 2011 was to learn how to bake.  I must say I’m an excellent cook, but baking has never been my forte.  When he asked me to bake his a cake, I was happy to say yes, and I can’t wait to see what comes out of the oven tomorrow!  But until then, I need to get all the supplies to make a yellow cake with chocolate butter cream frosting and boost my baking confidence! 

One fun things that happened unexpectedly was receiving a package from Pottery Barn Kids in the mail at work.  I saw my name on it and assumed it was something from our registry!  And it was!  We are not having a baby shower since we are not planning on going back to Minnesota before the baby is born, but I still created a registry for the completion programs.  For those not familiar with completion programs, they allow you to buy at a discount items on your registry that didn’t get bought.2011-10-17 13.18.08

Here is baby Cameryn’s first items from Pottery Barn…thanks Mom!  I have a feeling she is going to be one spoiled little girl!  🙂

Eats from yesterday:

  • Breakfast-  1/2 banana, 1 cup coffee and and egg and cheese English muffin sandwich
  • AM Snack-  Apple and Larabar
  • Lunch-  English muffin with almond butter and raspberry jelly (I was trying to get the baby to move)
  • PM Snack-  Peanuts
  • Dinner-  2 small fajitas
  • After Dinner Snack-  3-4 heaping handfuls of popcorn

I wont do a huge workout recap from last week this week, but I did get in all 5 of my gym workouts and did yoga twice.  My goal for this week is getting in my 5 gym workouts and at least 3 yoga workouts.

My workout from yesterday was a rest day!  ❤ ❤ ❤  Keith and I actually slept in past 6am which is pretty unheard of for both of us.  It felt great.  I’ve been noticing my energy levels have started dropping and I hope not for good as I near the third trimester.  I was extremely tired yesterday and kind of feel the same way again today.


So I know we all have them, I don’t believe someone if they tell me they don’t.  What I’m talking about are pet peeves.  Weird little things that totally bug the crap out of you.  Here are my top pet peeves:

  • Hearing someone breathing
  • When the toilet paper is coming under not over the roll
  • When someone doesn’t take the 2 seconds it takes to put the toilet paper on the roll and instead just sits it onto of the old roll

Is it weird that my top pet peeves revolve around toilet paper? 

So the question of the day is:

  • What are you biggest pet peeves?

    It’s hard to think of pet peeves on the spot they are so situational. But the ones I can think of usually revolve around driving. When people don’t use a blinker or when people back into parking spots. Drives me nuts.

      When people don’t use their blinker is a good one! I hate when I’m waiting for a car to pass so I can turn and then they end up not using their blinker and turning! It drives me crazy!

    I wondered where you were yesterday?! 😉

    Haha omg this is hilarious…I totally agree with all your pet peeves! One of mine is pushy drivers…I absolutely cannot stand drivers that tailgate me! Another is people in line at the grocery store and when the person behind me is breathing down my neck and starts putting their groceries on the conveyor belt before I’m even done…I just feel like saying to them “we’re not going anywhere!” Sorry, I guess I just can’t stand pushy people in general, ha! I think in general the public just needs to slow down and relax…. 🙂

      I can’t stand pushy drivers either! So annoying! I also agree with people who crowd your space at the grocery store! It gets so annoying!

    I LOVE your pet peeves. The drivers who tailgate is a HUGE one of mine. As well as hearing someone breathe. I hate it. I also hate to hear people chew. It makes me want to barf.
