Summer Bucket List!

I am so excited that Summer is almost here! I’m joining in with the Summer Bucket List linky party hosted by A Cupcake for the Teacher, Miss Kindergarten, and A Modern Teacher.

summer bucket list linky (2)The most important item on my Summer Bucket List is to spend time getting to know our little girl. I am almost 9 months pregnant and have a c-section scheduled for June 3rd! We are so excited about welcoming our baby girl into our family… most of my time this summer will be spent navigating the waters of new motherhood! My husband and I have a lot to learn, and thankfully we have all summer to figure it out!


Sarah Elise at 35 weeks… love those chubby cheeks!

Running QuoteAs soon as I can, I want to begin running again. I continued running up until week 26 of my pregnancy and then my feet began to swell. For the past 3 months I’ve only been able to fit into one pair of flip flops! I’m so excited to fit into my running shoes again and begin training. I want to work towards a half-marathon since I was unable to run the Savannah Rock-n-Roll half last November. I decided not to run since I had just found out I was pregnant and had yet to see my doctor. I LOVE our jogging stroller (Bumbleride Indie) and can’t wait to spend many early mornings out on a run with Sarah!

beachI have a TON of new products to add to Polka Dot Parlor! I also want to spend time planning out blog posts for the new school year, as well as create new materials for my TpT store. I will not be teaching next year, as my husband and I have decided that I will stay home with Sarah. I am so excited and grateful for this opportunity to spend time with her while she is so young. I will miss teaching, however I still plan to stay active with blogging and creating activities and resource packets.

    Congrats on the new baby! I’ve had 2 c-sections and my biggest advice with those is take your time getting back into it. I like to run too so just passing it along ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck and Congratulations!

    Your ultrasound is absolutely amazing! I stayed home for ten years with my two children and it was time I will cherish forever. Good for you!

    Congrats on your baby girl, who is almost here! Such a great time of year to welcome a new baby, having the whole summer to spend with her. One of my fellow teachers is expecting, her due date is June 1st. We have been thinking for over a week now that she is ready to have that little boy, but he is just not so ready. I am glad to have found you through the Summer Bucket List linky and am looking forward to photos of your little lady. Good luck!
