I Confess Sesh

Thursday, October 13, 2016

I confess that...

++ Today is my 24th birthday. If at 18 you would have asked me if I thought I would be living with my wonderful husband and expect our first baby by the time my 24th birthday came around, I probably would have laughed out loud. Now, I couldn't imagine it any other way.

++ As excited as I am to be pregnant, I am that and one hundred more times excited to be a mama.

++ I woke up at four in the morning and couldn't go to back to sleep until I had some flaming hot lays chips that my baby body, knew was in my cabinet. After I ate some I slept for another solid 4 hours.

++ My best friend is flying from San Francisco to spend the weekend with me and I feel like a little kid who just got told she can have ice cream. I am SO excited to see her.

++ We applied yesterday for a two bedroom apartment. We've never had any issues getting our apartment of choice before, but I really want this one and I'm hoping that everything goes smoothly with our application.

++ I can barely stand to watch a single political thing on television anymore. Except when John Oliver talks about it because then I usually laugh so hard that I cry. Other than that, I cannot wait for this election to be over with.

++ I have had such a smooth first trimester, knock on all the wood, and haven't been sick a single time. I have to put on so much weight for this baby since I was technically considered underweight for my height before my pregnancy. So I'm hoping my appetite kicks into over drive.

++ Next week we get to find out whether we're having a boy or a girl so I can stop saying things like "this baby".

++ My student loans go into repayment next month and that alone is enough to send me running far, far away. How long do you need to disappear before they stop trying to collect from you? Asking for a friend.

++ And that's all for today because I've been a bad blogger lately and used whatever remaining brain power I've had lately to catch up on my favorite Netflix shows...and pretty much do nothing else.

Happy Thursday, everyone.

JORD Wood Watches For Fall

Friday, October 07, 2016

If there is one thing I understand about fashion staples, it is men's watches. As weird as that may sound, I have a confession to make. Actually, it's someone else's confession and I don't know how he would feel about me sharing it with you all, but it's about time it comes out. My husband's name is Daniel and he is addicted to buying watches. 

Phew, glad we got that off our chests.

In all seriousness, if there was only one men's accessory that he could wear for the rest of his life it would be a watch. In fact, we have a whole case of them here at home and for almost every holiday or special occasion I keep my eye out for a unique men's watch to add to his collection. 

When I found my way over to the men's shop of JORD Wood Watches I knew that Daniel needed one of these watches. I was immediately drawn to the Dover Koa & Black watch because of the contrast between the lighter wood and the dark face. It was like no watch that I had ever seen before and I immediately reached out to the people at JORD with the hopes that they would be willing to collaborate with me. 

I think that part of Daniel's obsession with watches comes from the fact that he's in the military and is on a constantly strict schedule. In a job like that, it's important to find a watch that's as durable as it is fashionable, especially as most of his time is spent outside.

Immediately upon opening the watch I knew that it was one that would last. It is clear from the packaging that down to the last detail JORD stands behind it's materials and wouldn't dare trade quality for anything. 

As much as I know that Daniel will love this watch for work, I love this watch because I can guarantee that he'll never be late for any of our baby doctor appointment's as we adventure into this next stage of our lives. 

Not only is the watch durable, but it's versatile as well. It's rare that I can find a men's watch that is as equally attractive on the wrist of a woman. And if you're anything like me and prefer a more feminine watch style, they have tons of women's watches as well that are just to die for. 

I have a birthday coming up next week and I bet you can already tell what's going to be on my list. 

As we head further into the holiday season I am a firm believer that it is never too early to start shopping for presents. This watch is the perfect watch for anyone on your list and as an avid watch buyer myself I can truly say that I've never seen anything so different in the best way. 

The people over at JORD were kind enough to offer all of you an amazing giveaway!
