ICLW'ers...check here for my intro post!
Nah, my guilty pleasure isn't chocolate or some similarly logical food obsession. My 2ww guilty pleasure is baby names. Cruel, annoying and lovely all at the same time! Honestly, I've always had a bit of a baby name obsession. I had a name list before I'd ever met DH and we talked about baby names long before we were TTC. But, the strangest thing happens every 2ww...I feel compelled to work on our name list AGAIN!
I wondered if the baby name bug would pass me by this cycle given the recent news. It didn't. I've been fighting against the tide the last few days. I finally caved yesterday, but I decided to channel my baby naming over to someone who could actually use it (BFF). Nonetheless, I thought it might be fun to share some of my guilty pleasure names...the one that either I'd never really use, or Hubby would never agree to. Here's a sampling (all girl names, by the way. Our boy name list was long ago solidified, so know guilty pleasures there)....feel free to share yours too!
Winter nn Winnie
Calla (Hubby says she'll get made fun of..."Calla-fornia," he says. *sigh*)
Olivia (LOVE, but too popular)
Isla (pronounced "eye-la")
So, that's the "love, but would never use list." While we're sharing, here's the best website ever invented for nameniks: Nymbler. The truth is that I don't mind thinking baby names so much, even this cycle, because it's a way of reminding me that our day will come and there will one day, someday, be a baby to name.
Confession...my 1ww guilty pleasure is usually planning the nursery (or BFF's). I know, I know! There's something seriously wrong with me! I'm going to much more dilligently avoid that urge this cycle. I just don't think I can stand it!!
What's your 2ww guilty pleasure or, better yet, what are your guilty pleasure names?
