7QT let's talk about some things

I'm linking up with Kelly at This Ain't The Lyceum   to give you this week's quick takes.  Are you ready?
It's probably not nice to talk about behind people's backs in a blog.
Even if they are celebrities.
But can I just say, and you can draw your own conclusions... Emma Watson is becoming my new Anne Hathaway and that is NOT a compliment.

The last couple weeks have been rougher than usual with pregnancy (which is still way less rough than any pregnancy before). I am back to throwing up a couple times of day, which is a challenge, but the bigger challenge is in order to avoid throwing up I need to eat, and almost all food is pretty gross to me right now.
I hate that.
What do you eat when nothing sounds good?
Maybe you can give me some ideas.  Soup is working well, so is Ramen.  My gosh, what would I do as a pregnant woman without Ramen?

Speaking of getting sick.
This week at some point I was throwing up (I'm sorry, is this gross to you?) and I accidentally didn't  shut the door tight enough. 
Sweet John Paul came in and was rubbing my back, 'you sick mama?'.
Nothing like a sweet little boy to perk one up. 

I am itching to go on a vacation before the baby gets here.
Aaron is never excited about spending money.
We are at a stand still.
He's thinking stay-cation, I'm thinking 3 night disney cruise... we are on very different sides of the spectrum on this one.
Who will win?

No Wednesdays with the Wilkersons this week.  It was going to be on Thursday, but we watched 'This is Us' and then it was too late.  I did do Wednesdays with my boys, it was cute.  But what you didn't see (if you watched)  is I was hard core disciplining during it. I even sent one kid to his room in the middle of it.  If you were watching and didn't realize one kid was sent to his room and then apologized and came back... it pretty much means I am a rock star parent.
There was also some slight pinching going on to demand good behavior.
Basically, we won't be doing 'live with the Wilkerson children' again anytime soon.

O.M. freaking Lower case g.
We are watching the ESPN special/documentary on the OJ Simpson case.
It is captivating.
There are so many themes that are amazing me.
But, probably the most surprising at all... wait for it...
I can actually see how the Jury decided against conviction.
They were wrong, of course, but I finally understand why they reached the conclusions they did.
It's absolutely memorizing, if you're bored, you should watch it.

My girlfriend Erin had quite the scare yesterday morning with her son, Noah.
He had a Grand Mal Seizure and was taken by ambulance to the hospital.  
I can't imagine the fear.  She did an awesome job writing about it and how much a person can take, but more important, how much God can take.  Click this link to give it a read, you won't be disappointed. 

The reading doesn't have to stop here, head on over to http://thisaintthelyceum.org/ to read more quick takes!


  1. So sorry you're experiencing such pregnancy sickness! Pregnancy is the only time I've felt as it eating were a necessary chore solely to stave off nausea. And I wasn't nearly as sick as you sound.

  2. I can totally relate. I am pregnant, and I feel terrible when I don't eat enough But NOTHING SOUNDS GOOD. It drives my husband nuts. It drives ME nuts!! Last night I had veggie pad thai. It was ok.

  3. I am so sorry to hear that you're getting sicker! That's awful. Have you tried popcorn? I lived off of popcorn when I was pregnant last year-I read somewhere that it actually has some health benefits for pregnant ladies, and it was easy to have a little bag with me to munch on throughout the day.

  4. So interesting on the ESPn special on OJ....there is one on my Netflix watch list I keep debating on watching, mostly is it too scary to watch by myself living alone ;)

  5. The pregnancy sickness sounds awful. My go to was always black beans...apparently they have some magical property of neutralizing acid or something that makes them help a lot. (Unless they don't, because pregnancy is sneaky that way.) But black bean dip was good, or soup (Cuban black bean is the bomb) or I actually would just choke them down plain and cold out of the fridge medicinally, because I couldn't bring myself to prepare anything.
