You might think I am weird because...

 When I hear a new song that I absolutely love, I put it on repeat over and over again?

 I hate Starbucks except for their new drink, a hazelnut macchiato, try it, you won't go wrong!

I love to make homemade lemon curd and eat it out of the jar with a spoon, much like I do with Nutella except that stuff is best store-bought. You can't recreate the goodness that is Nutella, you just can't.

There are still winter decorations up in my house, those red and gold painted pinecones, yup still sitting in a bowl in my living room. What month is it, yes I know it is April, I realize that.

I never got out of my pjs on Monday, Caleb was dressed by 10am, but his mother not so successful at getting accomplished in the dressing part. Other aspects of her life were completed that day like drinking coffee, instagramming some photos of Caleb but dressing didn't happen.

I gave birth over 2 months ago but I still look at Gap, H&M and Old Navy's maternity line, yah I'm weird, told you... maybe I actually miss being pregnant, which is strange for me to say. I never fancied (so British) the idea of pregnancy especially the body changes that come with but oddly enough, maybe I enjoyed it more than I thought. Except I could do without the restless night of not sleeping, the constant peeing, the grunts and groans whenever I went from a sitting to a standing position...

When I first met Sean, I was a vegetarian and the only reason I became that was because meat was too expensive and it was cheaper to be a vegetarian. Who was I kidding myself about being a vegetarian and it actually lasting? When I was a kid, my favorite meal was steak. I am a meat-eater at heart...

I love my morning cup of coffee hot and to stay hot as long as possible. To achieve this, I boiled water in a pot then pour the hot water into my coffee mug and leave the water in for a few minutes. Then I throw out the water and then pour my coffee into the mug. Warming up the mug with the hot water keeps my coffee warm A LOT longer.. yah go ahead and make fun of me if you will...

What things make you weird?

Because I haven't posted any photos of Caleb lately, here you go.
(sorry for this total random Thursday post)

Yesterday at Newport Beach :-)

caleb is a doll! and don't feel bad...I still have painted pine cones and a happy new years printable up at my house!

BLovedBoston said...

I dont think you're weird at all!! And mama you look fantastic after just two months of giving birth!! Caleb's little cheeks are so adorable!! I always put songs on repeat...don't even ask how many times I listened to Justin Biebers "Boyfriend" haha

I did a stint as a vegetarian in college because I was eating in the dining hall and the thought of eating meat from the dining hall just grossed me out. I existed on pasta, salad & cereal. Steak is my favorite too, but I still don't know how to buy red meat at the grocery store. I have no idea what looks "good" and what doesn't!

And don't feel bad - I had my Christmas cards hanging up until just about a week ago. I took the cards down and put up all the birth announcements we've gotten since there have been so many of them lately!

Katie said...

i look at maternity clothes sometimes too! and have many days where addilyn is dressed and I am not!

Sarah said...

oh my gosh he is just the cutest! You look great! And I totally do the song repeat, like ALL.DAY.LONG...I tried to go vegetarian in high school, but my put a stop to that really quick by serving meals only with meat and no veggie options, she said, no daughter of mine is going to be vegetarian...

Lacey Steiger said...

He's too cute! I'll have to try the mug thing. My solution is to keep pouring in hot coffee and then I end up over-caffeinated.

Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

I like your random! also i might have to try the hot cup trick!

Shelby {Recent Somethings} said...

Random is always fun - and fascinating! Caleb is an absolute DOLL :)

He is so beautiful! You look amazing! High five, mama!! My son is 2 1/2 and sometimes I find myself still looking at the maternity section. Heck, sometimes I still wear my maternity shorts when it's warm out. They're just so much more comfy and they help cover up that stomach pouch that I'm trying to get rid of! I love the new look of your blog btw! It's lovely!

Jessi @ Jessi's Design said...

hahaha this is fantastic- especially the song on repeat (so me- I have to learn the words!) and the still maternity shopping one. I must say though.... ditch those pinecones girl!!!!!! :)

Sara {Rhapsody & Chaos} said...

He is seriously adorable! And you look wonderful. We are opposite coffee lovers -- I wait for mine to cool a while before diving in. My mouth must be more heat sensitive.

KatiePerk said...

I like this post too!! I warm the cup if I am drinking tea but I never thought of it with coffee!

MakeMeUpMia said...

Caleb is precious! My mom warms her plates and mugs in the microwave before eating or drinking coffee haha. I definitely play fave songs on repeat. I'll buy an album and find a song I like, overplay it, then the radio comes out with it and I don't like it anymore! One weird thing about me.... I don't eat ANY seafood. Not because of the taste, but because it freaks me out. To me, it's like eating a snake or other creepy creature. (I understand how insane I sound!) Even more weird, I'm moving to the beach!! Yeah... I'm working on this. I've got better, I've tried a lot of new things in the last year and I'm making progress ;)

Laura {happily ever} Parker said...

haha I love this post! I too hear a song I love and then simultaneously kill it with overplay on repeat! Love pictures of that sweet little Caleb!

Kate H. said...

I am definitely going to try the water in the cup trick...I love my hot beverages...well...hot =) I will even order things extra hot just to make them last longer!

JumpingJE said...

Hehe I have Christmas lights still up inside my room - they're not coming down ever!

Kayla MKOY said...

I love this :) I totally still have a Christmas tree and funny snowman in our guest bath...whoops! ;) just removed them. It's definitely almost May, baha! Love this post!!

Nat said...

What a little cutie!! Don't worry having a baby pretty much exempts you from most house chores, especially changing out decorations, for the first year! I'm a song repeater too- I will play it over and over again for hours, it drives my husband insane.

Lauren {at} Life.Love.Lauren said...

I play songs over and over and over again too! :-)

Elle Sees said...

i did a video recently on 90 facts, aka weird things about me. girl, you are not alone!! and can we talk about how cute caleb is?? i wanna hug him!!

birdie to be said...

Love learning new things about my blogger friends! And Caleb is so cute... and you look fabulous btw!

Alison @ Get Your Pretty On said...

LOVED reading these facts about you! I want to know how to make lemon curd now. My hubby discovered that warming up the mug trick a while back and I love it. He does it with our coffee carafe too. If you let the hot water sit in there, the coffee stays hot that much longer. Caleb is adorable!

Jamie said...

Ahh, he is sooo cute!

Jane said...

he's such a cutie! and i repeat songs that i love like there is no tomorrow! :)

Jillian Manesh said...

he is SO cute!! and i totally listen to new songs over and over until i cant stand them anymore.. i do that with food sometimes too. i got really burnt out on pineapples last year. (they are making a come back now tho). and i look at maternity clothes NOW...and im not pregnant. just scoping things out for the future! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

Christina Schergen said...

I do the same thing with new songs!!! I am not a starbucks fan...I love caribou. And, you must share with me the homemade lemon curd recipe!!!??! Also, Caleb is adorable.

Jessah @ Dreaming of Dimples said...

These are all completely reasonable things! ;) Caleb is darling. Just started following you in IG...loving your photography. Let me know if you ever what to swap blog buttons. XOXO

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

You look amazing! I can't believe you had a baby 2 months ago?! Such a great picture of you two!

Lisa Loves John said...

Love this post and your Caleb!! :) And you can ask my husband, I am a frequent offender of new songs on repeat, ha! xo

Katie @ A Beautiful Little Adventure.com said...

You're not alone in leaving up long past due seasonal decor!! It's too much work to lug up the boxes and put things away sometimes, or else I just get so used to looking at it I forget that it's for Winter only :)

Kiersten said...

The coffee thing is not weird at all - we do that where I work when we make things like Baileys and Coffee to heat the mug while we pour the alcohol. And I am definitely the person who will listen to the same song on repeat for forever! It's probably pretty weird that I'm 22 and eat spaghetios pretty regularly, but hey - they taste delicious!

Elizabeth said...

so fun! I LOVE the picture of you two!
