Orrrrrr not. But I'm gonna plug on anyway!
Winter is coming.
First of all, I just started reading Game of Thrones (not for the faint of heart, btw, a fair warning to you all) and I finally get that reference. So I was pretty nerdily excited about that.
I love me some good weather stuff - I'm kind of secretly sad I didn't major in meteorology in college. (I took a few classes with Caitlin and Meghan but never anything past entry level.)
Kate has been pretty crazy fun and crazy crazy recently.
DST, teething, and growing out of a nap all kind of coincided on one week/weekend while we were of course out of town so it's been a little bit of a learning curve for all of us involved.
She's been saying SO many more sounds though that it's worth the hilarity that brings - babbling on about no one knows what, and it's super duper cute.
She's also been peeing through her diaper every night for the past week, which means that I think as of last night she's out of clean pajamas. I'm due for some laundry catch-up to cope, obviously. But I'm wondering if anyone has advice? Do I double-layer a diaper? Move her up to the next size? Put a smaller one inside and a larger one outside? Splurge for those overnight diapers? She's in size 4s and doesn't seem to be outgrowing them in any other area except for the consistent peeing.
It's never enough to get the sheets really wet but her pajamas are always soaked and that's a super fun thing to wake up to. (For all involved.)
I bought this purse as my reward for losing some weight and oh my heavens it is gorgeous. And only $30! I'm still holding out that one of these days I'll win the thousands of giveaways I enter for a Lily Jade but until then, I think this will tide me over.

Speaking of losing weight, I only have 2 workouts and a fit test left until I am done with Insanity! It is a darn good thing too because I am super burnt out.
Don't get me wrong, I've really liked Insanity. It's tougher than anything I've done before and makes me feel super B.A. after every workout, but it's a lot of the same thing and I'm ready for a change. I think after it's done I might take a few days off orrrr I might start right away into Kayla Itsines' Bikini Body Guide.
Yes, it's a dumb name for a program but she has a huge Instagram following and the results from her programs are incredible.
My St. Kateris are getting further and further along!
When I came home last night from painting them with a group of girls that are doing the exchange with me, I told David that I was getting close to done and was pretty excited! David took one look at them and said, "Uhh...you're almost done?" So apparently I still have some work to do. But I'm still getting excited as they look more and more like people and not faceless blobs. (No offense, St. Kateri.)
This weekend is going to be pretty chill for us (hopefully). Tile buying for our bathroom reno, football game, painting peg dolls, watching The Blacklist, doing laundry, the works. It'll be nice before the onslaught of crazy weekends in December come hurtling towards us!
Have a great weekend, y'all, and head to Kelly's for more quick takers.
