baby bump / irvin / erin in a box / LNA meeting

Reading: The Girl in the Spider's Web by David Lagercrantz. I have to say that when I initially started reading this, I was very skeptical. I felt like the book was a cheat because it wasn't written by Stieg Larsson. Additionally, the book was hard to start. Lots of foreign names, new characters, etc... I'm now 3/4 of the way through, and I really am enjoying it. As it goes on, it feels more and more like it fits in with the series. 

I also halfway finished Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee before I had to move on. I was dreading reading it because the story is so slow to progress. Lee passed away while I was in the middle of it, and I will finish because I feel a sense of obligation. I don't think it will be one of my favorites unfortunately... 

Watching: 11.22.63 on Hulu was fantastic! I didn't think I would actually get into it, but it really was engaging. We are now flipping between Master of None and Last Man on Earth (I don't even know how/why we started that one). Of course we are all caught up on Girls, and anxiously await Sundays for Game of Thrones. YAS!

Listening to: The Lumineers recently came out with a new album, and it's been on repeat. We also have gotten addicted to Chris Stapleton - so good! Now if only we could find reasonably priced tickets to his sold out show on July 1. 

Thinking about: When is this baby going to finally come?!? Yesterday was my due date, and I'm getting very impatient. This baby is taking up all of my insides and it has become very hard to sleep, walk, eat, and breathe (you know, the essentials to maintain life). 

Loving: Working on the house! Andrew and I have been in baby prep mode which did wonders for the nursery. We even got a new dining room light fixture and are working on improvements to the windows. 

Looking forward to: Summer. Andrew and I will be on family leave for most of it. I can't wait to meet the little person we made and enjoying the warmer weather as a family. 

Making me happy: Sunshine! It has been so dreary the last few weeks (thanks, April), and I love the sunshine and warmth that May has brought so far.
