It's too hot here.

We're going on day 31 of over 110 degree temperatures. It is some kind of sick record. Frankly, I am tired of it. The heat has squelched all creative desire from my body. I have lots of projects to complete before Miss Stella arrives in two and a half months, but they will simply have to wait until October. Until then I might just go crazy.

Since I am boring and sweaty and have nothing to blog about, I thought I would steal this from my sister's blog:

1. Name one thing you like and one thing you dislike about your name.
I have always been sort of neutral about my name. I don't love it, but I don't hate it. I like that I was named after my mom (Stephanie is her middle name) because she is a classy lady. But I always thought it had too many letters in it (It has 9. That's a lot.).

2. How do you beat the summer heat?
I don't. This summer is killing me! I sit on the couch with a fan pointed in my direction and try to remember what it feels like to be cold.

3. What are your favorite five items in your wardrobe?
I have lately realized that I am not a lover of clothes or shoes (I know, how can Leslie and I be related!), so this is tough. Plus, I am usually sweaty and nearly 30 weeks pregnant, so getting dressed isn't something I look forward to.
  1. Loungewear. I can't get enough of it.
  2. My bright pink maternity bathing suit. I just love it and would only dare wear a bright pink swim suit when my big tummy takes the attention away from my less desirable physical traits.
  3. The pink shirt that will now have to wait until after I have the baby to make another appearance.
  4. A comfy black skirt that Leslie sent me a few weeks ago. It has become the only thing (besides loungewear) that I wear.
  5. My super plain skinny platinum wedding band. I love that it is so simple.

4. What are you most proud of?
Right now I am most proud of my husband. He has been working crazy long hours and is super stressed at work, but he comes home every night and somehow manages to leave the stress at the office. I don't know how he does it. He has amazed me with his knowledge and ambition and despite some lame workers, his business is growing every month.

5. Name one subject on which you could talk for hours.
The proper way to raise a child (because I am totally THE expert.).

6. In one word, describe your first kiss.

7. Finish the following sentence: "I can always find an excuse to _________".
Lay on the couch. When I am pregnant, I like to take it easy. It is the only time I can relax and not feel guilty doing it.

8. The big decision I'm currently wrestling with is . . .
I hate to say it, but I currently have no big decisions to make. It is nice.

p.s. In case you were wondering, the floor is almost all the way dry and Oliver is just "a yiddle bit sick" now.


  1. i'm so glad you are wearing that black skirt. i wore it post-miles, and it was heavenly. despite the fact that it cost like six dollars. or maybe because it cost like six dollars. who knows.

    yay for stretchy waistbands!

  2. when i'm missing you, i just envision you in some loungewear laughing at one of my dumb jokes. it makes me happy.

  3. HEY! Easy on the nine-letter names there, sister.

    I'm sorry it's so hot. Saunas are fun, but not for thirty-one days straight.

  4. I think that swimsuit brings attention to some of your very desirable physical traits.

  5. i say hooray for no big decisions. i've got "THE BIG ONE" on my mind that we discussed at dinner and can't seem to be distracted from it. i hope i can see you tomorrow before i leave sundeee. :)

  6. i'm glad you don't have a big decision to make right now! just relax, it won't be 110 forever! mom
