What A Week

Hello there Ladies and Gents! I had a super busy, good then bad week. It started off pretty good when I finally found the Pecan Pie M&M’s. Usually Target has the specialty flavors, but theses were a Wal-Mart exclusive- a store I’m not a fan of. I had been on the hunt for them, stopping in once a week to check the candy sections and I finally found them! Pecan Pie M&M's

I was a little disappointed that they were milk chocolate. I was hoping they’d be white chocolate like the Candy Corn ones were. There was a hint of pecan but the chocolate definitely overpowered. Oh well. I still find it fun trying all the flavors. While at Wal-Mart, I also bought a self tanner spray. You guys… I did pretty good over all, but my feet were orange the next day and my arms had a nice line down the back from them resting on the table that night while I used my laptop.Spray Tan Line

I had a big presentation Thursday morning at 8AM and the beginning of my week was filled with research, collaboration and preparation. Thursday morning came and I got in at 6:30AM to finalize everything and look over my notes. I logged into my computer only to find out that my preso was moved to Friday morning. Great right? NO! I had freshly washed hair, the perfect outfit (I have like 2 dressy pant/top maternity outfits) and was just ready to get it over with, haha. Of course, Thursday night ended up begin one of those nights I barely slept (3.5hrs) so come Friday morning, this was called for…

Nespresso and Pumpkin Milanos

Nespresso and my last two Pumpkin Spice Milano’s. Pre-breakfast of champions. I reserve caffeinated coffee for mornings like this. It did the trick. It went really well and I got a $50 Amazon gift card for having such a good preso! Holla.Amazon Gift CardI had a dentist appointment Friday at 1 and thankfully, all those extra hours I worked during the week meant I didn’t have to go back to work after the appointment. Again… holla! Except, I never made it to the dentist…

I ended up getting in a car accident on the way there. I was sandwiched between two other cars and my car is potentially totaled. It wasn’t my fault and I was in such shock when it happened. To make matters worse, Todd wasn’t here. I immediately I called my mom who came asap. I thought to myself, how am I going to have my own kid, when I still call my mom for everything… I guess a mom’s work never ends!
My car was towed and my mom brought me home to change (we were sweating our butts off in the FL heat), check Baby Girl’s heart beat with my fetal doppler and grab a snack before heading to the ER.Pregnant ER visitThe guy who checked me in said he was glad I said I was pregnant because sometimes he’s worried the person just has a food baby. My mom and I cracked up, because I have an awesome food baby when I’m not actually pregnant, haha. And this wasn’t even after eating…

Food BabyEverything checked out OK. I wasn’t bleeding, had no contractions or pain, so they sent me home, saying if anything changes to go to the hospital that I’ll be delivering at. NOTE: if your pregnant, don’t go to the closest ER, go to your delivering hospital or they might make you take an ambulance there=$$$.

So that was a fun Weekly Wrap Up and  Weekend Snapshot . Saturday I went shopping for some maternity jeans and clothes for cooler temps and Sunday was elliptical time, getting a rental car and finishing up my baby registry. Hopefully you had a better week/end than me! But I’m still having a  Marvelous Monday!

Give me a highlight of your week…

  1. Sorry about your accident. So thankful you and the baby are OK. I had the biggest food baby yesterday as Red Lobster has all you can eat shrimp. It was so good = I was so miserable after.

  2. OH geez!! Glad everything is ok!! When do you know if your car is totaled? How do you even know what the speciality flavors are for the MnM’s? You are the one that always tells me what they are?!! 🙂 Bummer that pumpkin spice wasn’t as good as you would have hoped!!!

  3. Glad to hear you’re okay but no doubt it was quite a scare for you. At least you can hope that next week can only be better than that last one! A little disappointing about the M & Ms but worth trying them out anyway 🙂

  4. Glad you’re okay! Car accidents are such a pain in the butt… and I’m somewhat disappointed that the pecan pie flavors leave something to be desired…

  5. Oh my goodness, I’m so glad you and the baby are ok! I’m sorry about your car but hey it’s only material and can be replaced! I still call my mommy and I have a 19 year old daughter so no you mommy duties are never done! I hope you have a better week! 🙂

  6. Um.. Pumpkin Spice Milano’s?? I must investigate!! Those sound amazing! Have you had the Pumpkin Spice Latte M&M’s? They’re pretty good, but definitely have a coffee taste to them..kind of strange. I’m glad you’re okay from your accident and that replacing your car isn’t too much of a hassle!

  7. I am so glad you linked up because I have NOT heard about the pecan pie M&Ms. Now, I’m going to be stalking the Walmart. My Dad used to buy my sister and I each a pound bag of peanut M&Ms each Friday. Um…not the best idea but they’ve always been my favorite. I’m so glad you and the baby are OK after your accident. That’s scary and that’s what Moms are for! I hope this week is much better.

    • Hope you find them! I think peanut M&M’s count as healthy since they have peanuts and that’s a healthy fat 😉 Mom’s are the greatest! Hope you have a great week, too!!!

  8. Hi…new to your blog. It would be hard for me to say I ‘liked’ your post since you talked about a car accident…and I sure don’t like the idea of a preg. car accident. So really sorry about that. But I did like your writing and the post in general!

    • Thanks for reading. Totally get that! And thank you 🙂 I tend to write like I talk, so a lot of times the grammar is off, haha. Thankfully, baby and I are good to go and that’s all the matters <3
