we've got a fantasy affair

you know when you take a baby to get his/her shots and then they are cranky for the rest of the day because ugh, shots? that was me last night. i'm not even sorry about it.

today marks the start of my thirty-first week of pregnancy which means that we are officially down to the single digits, people. nine weeks until my estimated due date. sixty-three days. (i'm still undecided about whether counting the days makes it seem shorter or longer.) and that urge to deep clean the house that people keep telling me about has yet to kick in. i'm starting to think that it never will. i did get halfway through another baby's blanket last night (when i stupidly ran out of yarn and now need to leave the house today and risk the cold to get more) so i mean, some nesting is going on i think.

but this post is surprisingly not about babies or pregnancy. without further ado, i hereby present to you my extremely embarrassing list of books read in twenty-fourteen. (i would like to preface this list by saying that i am the kind of person that turns to lifetime movies and chick flicks i have seen a million times when i am stressed.) oh, and it's in whatever weird order that goodreads likes to remember things in. i thought it was alphabetical until we hit number eleven and then realized that goodreads is just weird.

  37. What To Expect When You're Expecting
so i didn't make it to the fifty books that i wanted to read, but oh well. and to cap off the book failures of twenty-fourteen, i spent around $60 dollars on new books over the year which is ten dollars more than i said i was going to spend. (although to be fair, i bought the great greene heist to support the diversity in books movement. they were trying to get enough people to pre-order it to show the publishing companies that books with non-whites on the cover and as the main characters can sell just as well. if it wasn't for that, i wouldn't have bought it. so it kind of doesn't count. and if i don't count it then i came in under fifty dollars so yay me.)
