And now on to what we’ve been up to this week! (Spoiler alert – no baby)

1. I feel bad that the last post you got from me was LAST Friday’s H54F. I had all sorts of grand plans to catch up on blogging, but then I keep dozing off at about 2:30 every afternoon… At this rate the “what’s in my hospital bag” post/video will be a “what I actually used at the hospital” post. Ugh.

2. Yesterday Elizabeth had her last day of school for the year. Where has the time gone??? I meant to snap a picture of her, but she was surly when we got home, so I prioritized a nap over pictures of her scowling. But this was her when school started last September!

3. Speaking of Elizabeth, we also decided this week to film a “Meet Elizabeth” video (if you missed the last one, watch it here). I had such a willing participant at 2 years old. And this time? At 2.5 years old? Not so willing….. I need to edit it up if nothing else for a laugh! She participated for about 2 of the 11 minutes of filming. HAHA!

4. In anticipation of going in to labor at SOME point, I decided I needed to slap some polish on my fingers and toes. The fingernails? Easy! The toenails…. impossible. The pretzel-like position I had to maneuver into in order to get sort of kind of close enough to touch the brush to the nail was downright painful. So I’m determined, if I make it to next week, I’m popping in for a pedicure somewhere. Anywhere!

5. Anyone buy something from LulaRoe? What’s your favorite piece??? I’ve got the bug to buy something from them, because it just looks plain comfy! But I hate that I can’t see anything in person without a party of some sort… so soliciting feedback! You can tell I’m itching to not be pregnant anymore. I’m constantly day dreaming of things to buy. I already bought a few items from my post-pregnancy wish list, and I’m itching for a few more.


What were you up to this week? Let me know!

      These last few days are DRAGGING! But I’m trying to remember to enjoy this while it lasts… but it’s hard 🙂 Have a great weekend!!

  1. Michelle says:

    You’ll be seeing your toes soon enough. LulaRoe, my daughter buys from them and she has been happy with every piece. We saw a booth at a local festival and she bought from them for Hannah. So success story here. I was thinking about you this week regarding potty training. Our Hannah has decided she is done with using a toilet….my daughter is ready to throw in the towel on this.

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      Ignorance is bliss with my toes. Who cares if the polish is chipped?? Can’t see them!! 🙂 Oh Hannah!! Your daughter – totally feel her pain…. you’re not sure if you should just consider this a temporary set back and keep plugging away with potty training, or say “it’s not worth it” and wait for the kiddo to come back when they’re ready. Mercy! So frustrating after the work that goes into it. Thinking of her and standing with her in Mom Solidarity!

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      That’s good to know! It’s just so hard to commit to something new without being able to try it on first. Love the idea of the Maxi skirt doubly as a dress!

  2. Jess says:

    hahaha Your weren’t kidding about needing to paint your toenails before seeing the doctor! Solidarity!! (Although if I hadn’t been able to reach my toes, they definitely would not have been painted for the podiatrist!) Looking forward to another Elizabeth video–she is such a hoot (and not to mention CUTE!)! And I’m intrigued by LulaRoe too–a friend of mine was wearing their leggings one day, and they’re sooo soft! Hope you guys have a great weekend!

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      HAHA I read your post about your toes right after I was lamenting about my own. So the timing was perfect 😉 I keep hearing the leggings are the must try item. I’m not a leggings girl, BUT their patterns are adorable!!

  3. Sierra says:

    Happy Friday! I was the same way with trying to paint my toes right before I had baby #2, basically impossible. My little guy came almost 10 days late so I did make it to a nail salon. All the best to you and your family and prayers for a speedy and safe delivery. Beautifully Candid

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      Thank you!!! And I’m definitely going to try to squeeze it in this week. If the baby doesn’t squeeze out 🙂

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      I knew there was someone who loved it!! The baseball style tee in particular has me intrigued for the shirts. I just love all the fun patterns. And you have some of their dresses too, right?

  4. Whitney says:

    I love that you feel the need to have a mani and pedi before giving birth! Can’t wait to see that video with Elizabeth – she’s such a ham! 🙂

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      Bending is always accompanied with a grunt and a curse. But seriously, trying to paint my toenails was just a big fail. I couldn’t figure out where to put my foot to reach it!! HAHA!

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      I may have exaggerated the pain 🙂 But it was sure TOUGH!! Like a bad workout or something. SIgh… one day I’ll be able to do that again.

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      I hate the last few weeks too. Seems like it would take forever to get here, but it flew by. NOW we’re at a crawl… sigh…

  5. Nancy says:

    It’s crazy how fast the school year has flown by! We have a little over a month left here before summer vacation. I have heard lots of good things about LuLaRoe but have not tried it myself. Good luck on your last few weeks of pregnancy and have a great weekend!

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      The school year just whizzed by. Can’t believe it! You’re in the final countdown too for end of school. Hooray! Hope you all are having a great weekend!

  6. Anna says:

    Your daughter is so cute! I thought about looking for a local moms group for summer time. A little nervous but also excited to meet some new mommies!

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      Thank you! And I hope you find something!! Seriously, the mom groups have been life savers for me finding a sweet group of close friends. Bonus that our kiddos are the same age and can play together! MOPS is a popular, national moms’ group organization, but also check out your local churches, or even FB for groups! In our town there are probably 5 or so Mom Play Date/Meet Up type groups that have FB pages. Good luck!!

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      Aren’t they pretty??? So affordable and coordinated that they’d all look amazing together for a gallery wall!

  7. Nicole says:

    I’m excited for the meet Elizabeth video, even if she’s not cooperating, I’m sure it will still be cute! Kids are so funny at that age! I hope you will have time for a pedicure, you should get to do something fun and relaxing before baby comes! Hope you had a great weekend!

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      She definitely wasn’t cooperating, even with the fun of being able to see herself in the camera… le sigh… but there will be something! It at least will be a testament to what she’s really like these days HAHA! Happy Monday!
