The Life of Bon: Waiting for Baby

Waiting for Baby

I know all my posts have been about pregnancy/baby lately.  I try to keep a balance on the blog and not let any one thing take over.  I admit, though, it's been tough to think about other things this week as we went into extreme baby mode to try to get everything ready earlier than we originally anticipated.

We have an appointment in a couple of hours where the doctor will tell us the game plan.  When/where we will try to flip baby/possibly induce/maybe do a C section.  I feel like anything could happen at this point, and I am just trying to be flexible.  I totally don't want a C section, but if that's the way it goes, that's the way it goes.  I figure the key is to recognize that I have no control (always tough for a control freak like myself) and to just do whatever is safest and easiest to get baby out alive and healthy.

I think we're ready.  As ready as you can be, at least.  The bassinet is set up in the bedroom, the diapers are sitting on the shelf ready to be used, we even faced the daunting task of picking out a stroller and car seat.  Friday I felt a crazy burst of energy and spent the afternoon with my mom making a million freezer meals for after baby comes.  I finally feel like she can arrive and we would survive, so kudos to us!  We are somewhat prepared for a baby we have known about since November!

If you are tired of all things baby/pregnancy/stroller, I understand!  Life events are not nearly as exciting for other people as they are for the people going through them.  I've got someone else to introduce you to here so that you can get your fill of all things non baby related.  Steph writes about anything and everything- whatever kind of post you are looking for you can find with her!  Do yourself a favor and click two or three of her links below and I promise you'll be hooked for life!

Hi guys! I’m Steph from over at Steph’s Spot. I’m totally overthinking this post, because well overthinking is one of the things I do best, case in point: hugging. I wish I was one of those bloggers who know their niche, but I’m totally not. Once, I did a hair tutorial a few other times I shared some of my favorite recipes like Spicy Beef, Pepper Stir Fry with Garlic and Red Pepper Edamame,
or my two time award winning Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting.

Occasionally, I’ll try my hand at writing reviews. I recently did a super scientific and totally official test where I compared a Fitbit Flex vs. Jawbone UP24 for two weeks and compared them head to head to determine which was better. I dabble in travel because I’ve been blessed to have parents who work for the airlines. Think Thanksgiving in Germany, Spring Break in Hawaii, and a cruise in May with my blogger friend Logan! I try to be funny, but mostly my jokes fall flat – reference that hugging post I mentioned above for proof. I guess it’s just hard to write funny... or maybe in reality I’m not as funny as I think I am. 

Lately I’ve been writing about my life, which is usually pretty boring. If you don’t believe me, check out a day in my life. Writing that post was a lot of fun, even with a pretty boring life. Lately though, things have been a little more exciting if I do say so myself. I recently changed jobs, which was exciting but surprisingly stressful. I also turned my feet blue in an epic Pinterest fail. Oh, and this other little thing... I’m getting married next year to my boyfriend {I don’t think I’ll ever get used to saying Fiancé} of eleven years. So I do write a bit about weddings.  For now at least. I write monthly updates on our wedding progress, which my mom likes. Actually, that’s a lie my mom doesn’t even read my blog. Which I think is a good and a bad thing. I mean she already stalks me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and as of today Snapchat so I feel like we’re pretty connected, but doesn’t everyone’s mom read their blogs?

If you care about weddings, but just not mine I’ve got stuff for you too. I’ve tried my hand at styling some bridesmaid looks, sharing wedding color combos I love, creating free printables, and even a nice easy template to use to turn down wedding vendors. If you’ve stuck with me to here, you deserve a cookie! Since I can’t give you all cookies, I’ll give you a little sneak peek at what’s coming up this month over at Steph’s Spot. On the 24th I’ll be throwing my little blog a small birthday celebration that will involve some sort of giveaway. Do other people throw blogs birthday parties or am I the only crazy who is going to do this? I’ll also be starting to share about my fitness journey.


  1. It was good to see you and Greg yesterday! I didn't realize that you were so close to the Big Day until I read this post. God be with you today!

  2. I totally get where you're coming from, even though I'm only 6 months it's so hard to blog about anything else. It's just where you're at with your life right now and that's okay! I'm excited to hear all about your daughter's arrival!

  3. I like reading your pregnancy related stuff too... Ive had 2 c-sections not entirely horrible. Cant wait to see the baby :)

  4. Hope the appointment goes well! We are 35 weeks with baby #3 now, so I'm right there with ya trying to keep my blog not-all-about-baby ;)

  5. Don't worry about everything being about your baby right now. You're about to give birth- like this week! That would be the only thing on my mind too. But I'm praying for you and Greg and baby! You're going to be awesome parents!

  6. I am pretty sure if I was having a baby in a short span of time that is all I would be talking about. You are going to be great and you are in so many people's thoughts and prayers!


  7. How to restore a broken relationship and marriage ,Love Spells That Really Work Fast

    My name is Mark Davis, my family and i live in NY USA.It was after seven years i got to discover that my wife was unfaithful to me.I didn't know what was going on at first but as she got deep in the affair with her new lover, i felt that our marriage was on the rocks.I notice that she no longer light up when i touch her or kiss her in her neck and her chest cos she really liked it when i did that, she also usually get naked in front of me but when she started seeing that guy she stopped it.I remember asking her if i have done anything that makes her feel irritated when i am around her then she gives silly excuses that she has been feeling stressed up and that she need space for a while.I know when you are been asked for space its usually because there is something fishy is going on.I hired a private investigator to help find out what was going on.And in a week time he brought me prove that my wife that i have lived with for seven straight year is cheating on me with her high school lover.I had picture of her walking out a of a restaurant with him and many other photo of them kissing in public like she will never be caught by someone that knows she is my wife.I asked myself, even when we had a daughter together she could this to me.That same night i showed her the pictures that i got from my private investigator.She didn't look at it before saying, that she is seeing someone and she know that i just found out about it.Then she said that she is in love with him.At that moment, i didn't know if to kill myself or to kill her but the button line is that if i was going to kill anyone it was going to be me cos i was so much in love with her to even think of thinking to hurt her.As time when on she asked for a divorce and got it and even got custody of our daughter and i was all alone by myself.For a year i tried all i could to get her back with the help of my seven year old daughter.Even at that all effect was in vain, i used the help of her friend but turned out all bad.I know most people don't believe in spell casting but believe me this was my last option and the result i most say was impressive.And i know it difficult to believe but A SPELL CASTER Dr brave really made my life much better cos he gave me my family back.He didn't ask me to pay for what he did for me all i was to do, was to provide the materials for the spell and believe that he had the power to help me.Like he said, he was going to do something that will make her reset her love and affection for me just as it has always been.My wife told me she woke up and realized that she should have never left me that i am all she needs.To make thing clear, her life with her high school lover was great before Dr brave castled the spell they had no disagreement on anything.The guy said it himself that why she broke up with him is unexplainable.Only Dr.Brave can do such a thing contact him to solve your problem with his ,or kindly visit he website .
