Hey everyone!

Annamaria is making me type my random thoughts in my know...because Facebook just wasn't enough! LOL!

So here are my thoughts again...with a few more added in. Wanna read them? Here they go!

1. My baby gave me the best smiles this morning. I live for those moments.

2. Speaking of smiles, he was up at 1am just laughing and wanting to play. He didn't go back to sleep until 3:30, so I'm a cranky woman this morning. Luckily his laughs and smiles melt my heart - that saved him!

3. There's a sex tape, and then there's porn...with full camera crew and HD cameras. Mimi...girl, bye.

4. I miss watching my daytime tv shows now that I'm back at work - even though I have a tv on my desk. Just not the same as watching from my couch. Sigh...

5. Today is my Friday!

6. Madea is still doing plays?

7. There is a bag of M&M's on my desk just calling me. I don't know who put it there, but thanks!

8. What's up with Columbus Short beating up people and threatening his wife? Is that any way for a Gladiator to behave?

9. If you could sit down with your man/woman's ex for an hour to learn about their past relationship, would you?

10. Just had a wonderful breakfast and I'm already thinking about what I'm going to eat for lunch. Breastfeeding has me hungry like a mugg!

11. I'm out of "commuter" shape. Walking up and down subway platforms and around the city has me beat before I even get to work!

12. The ONE good thing about being back to work...I can take my time and eat slowly. I don't have to rush to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and scarf it down before my baby gets antsy. Notice I'm talking about food again.

13. I'm always thirsty too.

14. I feel like I'm the only person I know who doesn't drink wine. All of my friends and Olivia Pope make it look so nice and refreshing and sophisticated. Unless it's Moscato, I'm just not interested.

15. I think I need power steering fluid in my car. Didn't like the sound it was making this morning.

16. Am I the only person noticing random new people popping up in my Facebook newsfeed? Like people that I have not "friended" but "like" all of my posts? I have no idea who some of these people are, but hey...welcome anyway :-)

17. I'm dying to drink a soda with caffeine in it, but won't do it.

18. One of my good friends just had a baby girl on Tuesday - so happy for her and baby Zavia!

19. I still can't believe I'm someone's mother. I have a surreal.

20. I think it's time to bust open that bag of M&M's!

Happy Random Thoughts Thursday!

I missed my blog...and my blog family!

- It took me three tries to log in to my Cafe Blog account. It's been THAT long since I've logged in and posted something. That's sad.

- For all of those in my blog family who may NOT know, I'm preggers!!! However, I'm pretty sure you all know that by now -it was the worst kept secret :-)

- I'm having a boy! Jaxon Dean McMillon will make his debut January 2014!

- I'm excited, happy, scared, nervous, anxious and an all around wreck - but I can't wait to see where this next chapter of my life takes me :-)

- Have I blogged since I got married? I'm married too :-)

- I have three cats. I've officially claimed my sister's cat as my own :-)

- Scandal tonight!

- I'm also watching Love & Hip Hop NY. Yeah, I said it.

- The best story ideas for me come from ratchet TV.

- Can't get with the Preachers of L.A. though. I tried...doesn't do it for me.

- I suck in Fantasy Football this year. I will NOT be repeating as champion :-(

- I'm grateful to have been at my job for 10 years now. I truly love what I do!

- I have a constant sour taste in my mouth since becoming pregnant. I'll be so glad when that goes away.

- People who pretend to "instantly" fall asleep as soon as they see me walk on the train are WACK!
Keep your seat!

- I'm always tired now. ALWAYS. But I know it's for a good reason, so I don't mind :-)

- I love all my family and friends. Thank you so much for all the well wishes and prayers!

Happy Random Thoughts Thursday!

- Annamaria reminded me that it was Thursday. It feels like a Wednesday to me, but maybe that's because I was out Monday. Glad to know I'm one day closer to the weekend!

- I need ideas for my articles - anyone have any suggestions?

- I hope that this year brings me many amazing opportunities to grow and prosper :-)

- I don't even see how I have time to blog today given how busy I always seem to be. I need a nice, long vacation. Anywhere. Just doing nothing.

- This woman at work announced her pregnancy to her department with balloons and cupcakes, but then when I said "Congratulations" to her, she looked at me funny and replied, "how did you know?"

Um...maybe because you made a big production out of it?

- I'm so thankful for all that I, happiness, family, Everything else is secondary.

- Time for some ginger tea! I feel another cold coming on.
