Nine months and counting...

Well, it's kind of hard to compare these pictures as I'm dressed so differently. The first pic is of me at 36 weeks with Z in May of 2006. The second is of me at 36 weeks with baby girl in Sept. of 2008. Different months, different attire.


Today at the airport. It irritates me when you can't see my pony tail in pictures.
It's there, just take my word for it.

Quick funny for you, well kinda. Ben and Z went to WV for the weekend and I stayed home since I can't bear to sit in a car for four hours straight. Well, this was my first opportunity to do whatever I wanted for more than a couple of hours since Z was born and seeing as I'm due in a few weeks, it probably was my last opportunity for a long time. Friday night, after the boys left, I went out for dessert with a girlfriend, Saturday I did nothing but fun, fun, fun! It was truly my perfect dream day (if I'm going to be alone that is). I'll summarize: actual quality time with God in my closet, walked the dogs, garage saled, bargain shopped at CVS and JoAnn Fabrics (my favorite place!!), out to dinner with another friend, and the best part...I listened to "Enter the Worship Circle" and Jennifer Knapp while sewing and eating gummy worms.

So, I had another whole day to enjoy and all I planned to do was try two different churches (since we're hunting right now) and to sew some more. Well, I woke up Sunday morning to a personal tsunami. After I puked up all I could (yes I wondered if it was pregnancy related), it came out the other end for the next twelve hours (then I knew it wasn't pregnancy related). Just a yucky bug that took the whole day to go away. T'was a bummer, but miraculously I'm not bitter. I'm so glad I didn't have to watch a two year old while I was that sick! Ben helped me lots on Monday so I could regain my strength and today I'm totally better. That's my story, kinda funny, kinda not.

You look great! Can't wait to hear all about your little girl! You're getting so close! Glad you had a little time to yourself!

You look so good (possibly a little uncomfortable, though!).

I am glad you are feeling better... being sick is never fun, and even less so when you are pregnant.

a couple things...
-what do you mean quality time with God in your closet? I won't tell you the image I have in my head...

-did you know you can print 40% off coupons for Joann Fabric? Last time I went, I had a mailer coupon and two (different) printed coupons. I bought three items, and they let me use all three coupons!
