30 weeks

Friday, May 30, 2014

Time is seriously going at warp speed for me right now.

I'm 30 weeks pregnant now, which means I'm 3/4 of the way done baking this baby. In about 66 days it'll be time for her to come out, and weeks are just whizzing by at this point. I'm basically measuring the weeks by Game of Thrones episodes- every Sunday night I think "Wow, it's Game of Thrones time again already?" and that means another week has gone by way too quickly. To me it feels like 3 days rather than 7. I don't know what I'll do in another 3 weeks when Game of Thrones is over- I guess I'll have to find another show to track my time!

Here I am at 30 weeks and getting ready to go to my doctor's appointment.

I'm starting to feel very big. I mean, it's not just my lower belly sticking out anymore...it's the whole thing! It must be getting cramped in there for the baby because some days I feel like my lungs are crushed. I have to adjust my posture and sit up really straight or try to stretch out sometimes to get enough room in my chest to take a deep breath. She must love squishing my lungs! I've also noticed that when I sit or lay down my right thigh/butt cheek starts to go numb. Oh, and the acid reflux at night is super fun too. I love feeling like my whole dinner is sitting right in the middle of my throat. I've been popping Tums like crazy.

So yes, the not-so-fun part is beginning. Is there a "fun part" in pregnancy? I know some women love it. I do...at times. I love feel the baby kick and move around. There are certain parts of pregnancy that are awesome. But I think I might just be a wimp about it. I feel like I'm constantly complaining, groaning, grunting, and taking out my annoyances on everyone around me. I know my kids and husband have noticed my unfriendly disposition lately.

Since I'm not having a baby shower this time around, I figured I better start stocking up on some baby clothes. It's crazy how much stuff you get at your shower, but I just don't feel like doing one this time around so I have some shopping to do. I hit up some great online sales at Old Navy and Target and everything is so cute and tiny! This isn't everything I need, but it's a good start. It's going to be August and pretty hot out, so I figure a lot of onesies and little sun dresses are the way to go for the first month or so.

Lily's cat Muffin has been loving the crib. I have to remember to keep the door to the baby room shut all the way because if I forget and leave it open she will make a beeline for the crib. I've caught her in there a few times- once I swear the door was only open for about a minute before I remembered and she was already in there making herself comfortable. This one day I had the door shut, but it didn't click, so she stood up on her back legs and pushed the door open and snuck inside.

I've been busy pinning away some nursery ideas. I'm on the hunt for an old dresser that I can paint up and use as a dresser/changing table combo. I found a ton of cute ideas on Pinterest...now I just need to find the dresser! I've been scouring Craigslist and looking for garage sales and hopefully I'll find something soon. Feel free to send me pins or tag me @MelissaSwenson if you find a cute idea I might like!

How to repair a chipped gel nail

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

If you've followed along with my DIY gel nail tutorials you'll love this next one.


You've heard me rave on and on about how much I love wearing gel polish because of how long-wearing and durable it is. I love that I can polish my nails and have them looking beautiful and shiny for up to two weeks. Every once in a while though, I get clumsy and I'll still chip a nail about a week into wearing my gel manicure. That leaves me with a slight dilemma: do I leave the chip and obsess over it and stare at it for another week before it's time to redo my nails? For me, the answer is usually no. I can't leave a chip. It will drive me insane. And it also annoys me when I run my fingers through my hair and the chip catches on my hair or something. So the only solution is the fix the chip. Now, I've searched online for tips for repairing a gel chip, and I couldn't really find anything "official." So just like the filling/refreshing method I showed you guys, I just kind of had to make up my own way and go with it! I'm showing you my quick and easy method for fixing a chipped gel nail with only 5 steps that takes about 5 minutes to do.

Ready? Let's get started.


Step 1: Asses the damage. Before we can do anything we need to make sure that the rest of the gel nail isn't lifting or peeling up. I use a pair of cuticle nippers to lightly clip off any loose pieces of gel around the chip. Take off as little as possible, but don't leave anything peeling up.

Step 2: Next, we need to gently file off the shine on the entire gel nail. We want to break that seal we created with the top coat so the new gel will stick to the old gel (gel polish doesn't like to stick to anything shiny!) Then, take your file and gently file around the chipped area. We want to level off the little "ledge" between the natural nail and the gel without filing into the natural nail. Hold your file parallel to the nail and stay on the gel while you file. It doesn't have to be completely flush with the natural nail, but try to get it as smooth as possible. Use your finger to feel around and make sure it feels smooth.

Step 3: Dehydrate the nail with your gel cleanser or alcohol. Then apply pH Bond to the chipped area (if you don't have pH Bond that's fine...just make sure you dehydrate the natural nail really, really well. Like twice). Now you can apply a layer of your base coat, Foundation, to the entire nail. Don't forget to do the free edge! Make sure you get the chipped area really well and that you don't leave any dry spots. Cure under your lamp.


Step 4: Apply your colored gel to the free edge and just in the area where the chip is. We want to "fill in" the chipped area first. Remember to do thin coats- you won't get complete full coverage with the first coat, so don't worry if it doesn't look perfect just yet. I used arrows in the picture above to show where I applied the colored gel on this first coat. Then cure under your lamp. Repeat with another coat of colored gel just to the free edge and chipped area again. Cure under your lamp. 

Step 5: Apply one coat of colored gel over the entire nail to make sure your coverage is even and level. You shouldn't be able to see the chipped area through the gel anymore. Cure under your lamp. Finally, apply your top coat, Top It Off, over the entire nail and seal the free edge. Cure under your lamp. Repeat with another top coat if desired (I prefer 2 coats) and cure again. Then remove the tacky layer of gel with a nail wipe and your gel cleanser (or alcohol) and you're done! Apply some cuticle oil around your nail and you are good to go.

This process should only take you about 5 minutes.
 Now I can get at least another week of wear out of my gel manicure!
 

This is my 1 week old gel manicure after fixing the chipped nail.

A little pink & black GelishMINI mani

Thursday, May 15, 2014

I've got another gorgeous yet simple gel manicure to show you today!

First off, I wanted to address something that comes up quite often in my gel nail tutorials and posts. I get this question a lot in the comment section: do gel nails ruin or damage your natural nails? I've had people tell me horror stories of gels supposedly making their nails thin, or that they were painful, peeling, or breaking a lot during or after the removal process. Here's my short answer: no, gels do not ruin or damage your natural nails, if done properly.  Keep reading.

If you follow the instructions for the application and removal process, you should be able to keep the integrity of your natural nail completely in tact. That means you shouldn't be filing on the natural nail (which causes it to wear down or thin out) and you shouldn't be scraping or "chiseling" off the product in the removal process. This will ruin your nails! So whether you are doing your gel nails yourself or are going to a salon to get your nails done, remember this: nail enhancements should not hurt. Period. If your nails are being damaged from gel nails there is something wrong in the application or removal process and you should try to figure out what it is. If you're doing them yourself, reevaluate your process and try to figure out what you are doing wrong. If it's your nail tech, I highly advise switching to someone else and finding a more reputable tech. Don't pay someone to hurt you!

If you need proof that gel nails don't damage your natural nails, here it is:

Do these nails look damaged to you? No. They are healthy, long, and strong. These are my natural nails right after soaking off my last set of gels. I've been wearing gels for months and months without taking a break between sets, and my nails show no signs of damage even after I soaked them off. After I removed the gel, I carefully filed and shaped my nails (because they were super long), and then applied some cuticle oil and lightly buffed them maybe 4 or 5 times to smooth them out a little bit. When doing gels, whether it's in the removal or application process, you should only be using a very fine grit buffer on the natural nail, not a file

Gelish makes these awesome little cuticle pushers with special disposable tabs on the ends that are great for prepping your nails before applying the gel. I've used these before and they work really well for pushing your cuticles back and for removing the shine from your natural nail before you apply the gel polish.

If you don't have one of those, you can use what I use- this super fine buffing block that is safe for natural nails. I believe it's about 220 grit and you shouldn't be using anything rougher on your natural nails. You can find this buffing block here at Sally's Beauty Supply. It's my favorite! It will come in handy after you've soaked of your nails and need to give your nails a light buffing, and it also works in the application process to prep your nails as well.

Now that we've covered that, on to the new manicure!

I wanted something fun, but being in the third trimester of my pregnancy I also wanted something quick and easy, since it's getting harder and harder to sit comfortably to do my nails. I pulled out a few of my favorite tried & true Gelish MINI colors- Make You Blink Pink, Black Shadow, and a chunky-glittery one called Concrete Couture. 
 

I applied 3 coats of Black Shadow on 4 of my nails, leaving out the ring finger. On that one I applied 3 coats of Make You Blink Pink. Then I added one coat of Concrete Couture to my pinky and thumb (going over Black Shadow on those ones). I then went over all of them up with 2 coats of Top it Off, making sure to seal the free edge. As I've said before, I prefer 2 layers of the topcoat just for a little added protection and shine. Here's what I ended up with:

Pro-tip: I always file my nails a little bit shorter than I want them before I apply gels. My gel manicure generally lasts around 2 weeks, so think of how much your nails are going to grow during that period of time. Once the gels are on, filing them shorter isn't a good idea because you're going to break the seal on the free edge, which will most likely result in the gel separating at the tip of the nail and will cause it to peel up and/or chip. So make sure to make them a little bit shorter than you actually want them to be to account for how much they are going to grow!

Make sure to check out all of my DIY gel nail tutorials for more info and tips on doing your own gels. 
 
 Also, as I've stated before, if you follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter you'll probably get a chance to see all of my nail looks a lot sooner than you would here on the blog. I'm always snapping pictures and showing off little sneak peeks & offering quick tips on social media, so if you don't already follow me you should! Feel free to shoot me questions & comments if you have them.

So what do you think of the new mani?
Have you ever tried gels?

Bout of Books {daily updates}

Monday, May 12, 2014

Alright, Bout of Books 10 started today, and this is where I'll be updating my reading progress & discussing what I'm doing each day. If you want to see my goals, I posted those here.
Bout of Books

Monday 5/12
What I'm reading: I had previously started Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia (book #3 in the Beautiful Creatures series). I would like to finish this one, but it's getting really boring and I'm having a difficult time getting through it. I may stop & switch to something else. I'm open to suggestions because I'm feeling indecisive! Update: I decided to give up on Beautiful Chaos & switch to something more interesting. I'll be reading The One by Kiera Cass, which is the 3rd book in The Selection series. I loved the first book, the second was OK, and the third just came out last week, so let's hope the trilogy finishes up nicely! I do love the cover.
    
Pages read: 50.
Daily summary: I only read 50 pages today & missed the Twitter chat this morning. Oh well! Tomorrow is another day.

Tuesday 5/13
What I'm reading:











Pages read: As of 4pm- 40 pages. I'm just now really starting for the day. I had doctor's appointments in the morning and other errands to run. Update: 323 pages read total today!
Daily summary: I started & finished The One. It felt good to get a nice chunk of reading done, finally!

Wednesday 5/14
What I'm reading: I'm going to try reading Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. This book was recommended to me some time ago, and I've noticed a lot of my Goodreads friends have given it great reviews, so I'm hopping on board. I'm also hoping to hit up the Twitter chat this evening, but it's at 6pm PST, which is kind of a crazy time around here. We'll see what happens!











Pages read: 325! Go me.
Daily summary: I did so good again today (sorry- gotta pat myself on the back a little!) I started and finished this book and loved it. Could not put it down! I also tried to join the Twitter chat, but was busy with dinner so I only stuck around for 2 questions. Overall, great day though and I've already met my BOB reading goal. I hope to continue on at this pace and finish strong!

Thursday 5/15
What I'm reading:
Pages read: 0
Daily summary: I was really bad today and didn't read anything. It was really hot and I had to run a bunch of errands and go grocery shopping, which took me way longer than I expected. I didn't read and instead lounged around and watched a mini SOA marathon.

Friday 5/16
What I'm reading:











I'm hoping to start Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. This has been on my to-read list for a while now, and I loved her Delirium trilogy. This is just a stand alone book of hers and I've heard some good things and some bad, so I want to check it out for myself.
Pages read: 150
Daily summary: Started this book & I'm enjoying it so far.

Saturday 5/17
What I'm reading:











Pages read: 175
Daily summary: Wanted to finish this but I'm too tired! I'm about 75% done.

Sunday 5/18
What I'm reading:











Pages read: 145
Daily summary: Finished up this book & I really liked it! For a "teen" style book (centered around high school characters) I thought it was pretty dang good. I'm going to stop here for Bout of Books & call this the end of my read-a-thon.

Finishing up:

I think I did pretty well this Bout of Books overall.
Here's how my goals stacked up:
  • Read at least 100 pages per day Done! While I didn't read 100 each and every day, I went over my goal on a lot of the days, which amounted to 1,168 pages total and a daily average of 166 pages! Not too shabby.
  • Finish 3 books Done! I read The One by Kiera Cass, Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell, and Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. I really liked all of the books I finished.
  • Participate in at least 2 Twitter chats. Eh, I participated in one Twitter chat briefly. I wish I would have made it to another one but I just had too much going on most days and I missed a few when I just couldn't put my book down. Not completely a bad thing, right?
  • Compete in at least 1 challenge/giveaway. I failed here. I didn't do any challenges.
  • Comment on other BOB participant's blogs. I did OK on this one, but I mostly commented and interacted with other BOB participants on Twitter and Instagram, rather than on their blogs.
Overall a very successful Bout of Books!
Can't wait for the next one.

Happy Mother's Day!

Sunday, May 11, 2014

I just wanted to say a quick little Happy Mother's Day to all the mamas out there, and to anyone else who is a "stand in" mother figure to any wee ones in your life. I hope you all have a happy & blessed day with your families. You deserve it! I'll be spending today with my 2 sweet babes and my husband, and hopefully they have some sweet surprises planned for me (they better!)


Seriously though, Happy Mother's Day.
Moms rock.

That is all!

Hello 3rd trimester! Getting ready for baby

Thursday, May 8, 2014

OK, time is seriously starting to fly by. I can't believe I'm already in my 3rd trimester and we have less than 90 days before baby number three makes her arrival. At first I thought this pregnancy was dragging by, but lately the weeks have just been flying by and I've had to push myself to start getting stuff done.

First off, let's show the 27 week pregnant belly.

You may have noticed that I haven't been seen in anything besides a maxi skirt since I started showing. Maxi skirts & dresses are my BFF right now, for real. My thighs and behind have grown quite a bit and I want to cry when I put pants on. Skirts and dresses disguise my new curves way better than pants or shorts, and it saves you guys from seeing how much my thighs rub together when I walk (or waddle) now. I should point out though that my husband is just loving my massive butt...I've never had a butt before and it's a little out of control at this point. He's requested that when I start nursing and as the baby weight starts to fall off  that I try to keep the butt. I'll try, honey. But for now, it's maxi skirts in every color of the rainbow and these awesome stretchy tanks from Old Navy until the baby is born. Hey, at least it's comfy, right?

It's getting harder and harder to keep my toes looking beautiful.
I can barely reach them with this belly in the way.

Anyway, I figured it was probably about time to get the crib put together. Now, silly me, I decided to finally get rid of the crib I had used with my first two babies in the last move because I finally came to terms with the fact that we weren't having anymore kids. A part of me had still been holding onto it out of nostalgia, and I always thought "what if," but I just tossed it out while purging some of our crap when we moved. Luckily, a good friend of mine had this cute crib from Ikea in her storage unit and she's not planning on having anymore kids (though I'm trying to convince her that you just never know!) She gladly unloaded some baby stuff for me, and I happily accepted the crib. It only took me an entire afternoon trying to put it together with no instructions, but after taking it completely apart and flipping the pieces around a few times I finally got it. I love how it looks with the quilt I made!


Another friend gave me this adorable infant car seat and stroller combo that just needed a little cleaning up. Baby stuff tends to get pretty grubby, but it's nothing a little Oxyclean & Clorox wipes can't fix. I took them both completely apart, threw the fabric parts in the wash, scrubbed the entire thing, and they look pretty much brand new. I got a little sentimental when I realized that this is almost the exact same car seat and stroller I used for Lily! I love the pink and brown with cherry blossom print.

I am mostly good to go on baby gear and only need to buy a few more items for the nursery, like a changing table, a lamp, some curtains, and some decorations. My friend who gave me the crib also has a glider so I can rock and nurse the baby, so that will go in the room too as soon as I can get to her storage unit and get it all cleaned up. I'm so lucky to not have to buy all of these items brand new this time around! I started with virtually nothing and have had a lot of people offer some great hand-me-downs.

The only thing I really need to stock up on are clothes and diapers. I have almost nothing as far as baby clothes go. In the next couple of weeks I'm planning on going out and just dropping a good chunk of change on outfitting baby girl's wardrobe. So far, this is pretty much all I have for clothes, and these were given to me and bought pretty big, so they won't fit her right away. I need to get some newborn and 0-3 month size stuff that she can actually wear right away. It's going to be early August and hot when the baby is born, so I figure a ton of onesies are probably the way to go.

I can't wait to start putting the rest of the room together. I have a lot of ideas as far as decorating goes, so we'll see what I actually come up with and follow through on. I'm starting to really get into that "nesting" mode and I just want everything done and ready!

Bout of Books 10 {my goals}

Tuesday, May 6, 2014

Hooray! It's almost time for Bout of Books again.

Bout of Books
 
What is Bout of Books? Here's a little info from their website:
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
 Sounds fun, right?
If you're a book lover like me it's awesome.

This will be my 5th time participating in this particular read-a-thon, though I didn't do so great the last time around. It was right after the holidays, it was early in my pregnancy, I had horrible morning sickness, and on top of that I contracted the H1N1 virus and was incredibly sick. So needless to say, the last round of BOB was a total bust for me and I was super bummed. But I'm feeling great now and I have a ton of time on my hands, so I'm hoping to knock out a couple of books and get ahead with my 2014 reading goal. I need to make as much progress as I can now before the baby comes in August because I figure after that I may not have a whole lot of extra time to devote to reading with a newborn and all. As of right now I'm ahead and I'd like to keep it that way!

So let's talk goals. Here are mine:
  • Read at least 100 pages per day
  • Finish 3 books
  • Participate in at least 2 Twitter chats
  • Compete in at least 1 challenge/giveaway
  • Comment on other BOB participant's blogs
 
I don't have any specific books I'd like to read this time around. It will just depend on my mood when the time comes. Right now I'm trying to finish up Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia (from the Beautiful Creatures series), so I may decide to finish up the series or I might want to move on to something else that sparks my interest. My to-be-read list is always growing and there are a ton of books on there that I haven't gotten around to yet, so we'll just have to see what I'm in the mood for when Bout of Books starts up!

So what do you think? Are you thinking of joining Bout of Books? You should. If you love books as much as I do it's a great excuse to sit on your butt an read a ton. What could be better? And the Twitter chats are a really cool way to meet some new nerdy friends and find some fun new blogs to read. The Twitter chats are probably one of my favorite parts of Bout of Books (besides the reading!) because I've made some pretty awesome friends that way. Book lovers make the best tweeters! :) {Hint: you should follow me on Twitter to catch all of my updates!}
 
Are you ready to sign up too? Go here to join in!

Ready?! Let's get started.

Here's pictures from my day.

Wake up time= coffee time.

While the kids got ready for school, I started a grocery list and browsed the sales/coupons online.

Kids went to school, so now it's time for mom to get ready. I decided to skip the shower that day (I'm lazy), so dry shampoo and a messy bun it was. It was also really warm that day so I was happy to not have to wear a jacket or anything over my tank top.

Next I dropped the husband off at work and then it was grocery shopping time. I have my reusable bags down on the bottom of the cart, my sales ad, my caramel frappuccino, my list, and my phone out (I use the calculator on it to keep a running total as I go). Time to shop til I drop.

Shopping done. Now time to carry everything inside, organize the pantry & fridge, and put it all away. This is my least favorite part. Anyone want to come help?

Lunch time! Shopping left me famished, so I made a yummy toasted turkey sandwich with bacon, avocado, tomato, lettuce and cheese. Then I ate the crap out of it. Nom nom nom.

After refueling with lunch, time to do my nails. My gel manicure was about 2 weeks old, so I used my gel filling method and freshened them up.

Nails done. This one is Black Shadow by Gelish MINI.

School's out. Time to go pick up the kids!

After a snack, we decided to head outside since it was a beautiful day. And yes, my lawn needs to be mowed. Badly.

Playing Legos outside in the shade.

Alright, mom's hungry again. Time for some din din. I decided to try my hand at grilling (daddy was working late and then helping a friend move). I grilled up some burgers and hot dogs, and since we love grilled asparagus I decided to try grilled broccoli instead. It was delicious and the kids loved it! I highly recommend trying it.

After dinner and cleaning up the kitchen it was finally time to sit and put my feet up for a bit. Since recently being diagnosed with a kidney stone my back was killing me, so I kicked back and watched some Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy with the kids. My 9 year old loves those shows so it's kind our "thing" every week night.

8:00 means it's time for the kids to start getting ready for bed. While they put on PJs, brushed their teeth, and cleaned up their rooms I popped a pain pill and chugged some more water, hoping to get rid of this dang kidney pain. Oh, and I caught a little bit of Survivor too, but I wasn't really paying attention.

The kids were in bed reading and my husband came home to eat a sandwich really quick before heading back out to go help a friend load up a Uhaul to move. So I got comfy in bed with my laptop and a fudgesicle and got ready to finally watch Vampire Academy. However, about 20 minutes in I realized it was horrible, so I turned it off and fell asleep instead. Bummer, because I loved the book series.

So that was my day. It's a pretty typical one for me, aside from the pain pills, haha.

I can't wait to see every one's pictures!

Don't forget to link up and add the Photo An Hour button to your post.
And use the hashtag #photoanhourlinky on social media!
