The Secret Life of Bees is out in theaters. I read Sue Monk Kidd’s novel this past summer, and really enjoyed it. As the book-to-film transition tends to be a bumpy one in Hollywood, I was a bit hesitant about the movie version. But how I loved every second of it! The vibrancy of the characters and setting were brought to life in new ways on screen. Go see it – it is a great film based on a great book.
At 15 weeks pregnant, I have never been so tired in all my life. I’ve been napping in the afternoon, going to bed ridiculously early, and still feel exhausted during most of the day. Tonight I took a post-dinner nap at 8pm…who does that?! I’ve been assured by my doctor and every formerly pregnant woman out there that this is totally normal. But seriously, I cannot wait until this little phase passes. Where’s the second trimester energy? Where’s the pregnancy glow??? Wake me up when the good stuff kicks in.
