Well, hello there! I absolutely and unintentionally took a break for the last couple of weeks. This third trimester kinda hit me like a brick. All that tiredness that I never got before caught up with me. Also, we have started redoing parts of our house, so for the last three weeks, my house has been in a dusty, crazy state of movement and construction. I’m 34 weeks now (in case you were keeping count) and when people are told how far along I am, I seriously want to punch them when they say “You’re so close!” Seriously?! Uh…maybe if I said 38 weeks, but I’ve still got a month and a half to go! Blerg. Please bear with me and my anxiousness to meet this little boy and not be pregnant anymore. :)

My husband’s grandmother turned 90 this past week and we had a “Roaring 20′s” party for her. Flapper dress was suggested, but since I am 7 1/2 months pregnant, I kind of laughed at the idea. And since it was held on Friday night (the night where I’m basically out like a light at 7pm), I highly doubted that I could pull anything together. I did my best with what I had in my closet and it really helped me get in the party mood and I successfully stayed away until 9pm. SELF HIGH-FIVE!

On another totally unrelated note, I realize that my early morning riser is a very light sleeper, so if I stay in bed and don’t make any noise, he will sleep longer. So this Saturday, he slept until 8:20am! What?! Unheard of in this house!! I unfortunately woke up at 6am, but totally didn’t mind staying in bed for two hours just chillin’. Oh darn. ;)

A Stab In Her Very Skinny Back

So, I’m a huge fan of “America’s Next Top Model”. I love the behind scenes aspect and I’m not gonna lie, sometimes the drama is just too good to pass up. My favorite thing is seeing the photographs turn out at the end of the show. And a big part of that is usually done by Nigel Barker. I just recently saw a trailer for a new show (okay, maybe it’s in it’s second season and I’m just totally unaware) called “The Face” with Naomi Campbell and the handsome brit himself! WHAT?!?! That doesn’t seem right that he would go and do another show exactly like ANTM with another famous model. I would really like to know what Tyra has to say about this and if anyone else has comments or thoughts they’d like to share.

Are You Active?

The following is an actual conversation that happened at my last doctor visit…

Nurse: I have to ask, do you workout?

Me: Uh…yup, I walk.

Nurse: How often do you walk?

Me: Nevermind. Don’t put that.

Yeah, I haven’t been active very much lately, unless you count moving my spoon from the ice cream container to my mouth repetitively. I was looking back at pictures from the beginning of last year and yearning to exercise. And yes, for all you nay-sayers, I know it is possible to work out during pregnancy, I just can’t get my butt in gear lately and I seriously pulled a muscle “jogging” a mere ten feet with my five-year-old, so I’m a little wary to do anything. *sigh* Only two more months or so and then I can get moving again. But for now, I’ll just build my arm muscles up with my specialized spoon to mouth exercises. ;)

Dress Your Best During Pregnancy

1. Belts are your best friend.

Some maternity shirts or dresses don’t have darts or are hemmed so that they are tapered around the bust area. This results in a “tent-like” top. To avoid this, belt your top above the belly. This can be done with a belt or even a pretty ribbon. (continue reading…)

Jellyfish Fart

If you haven’t figured out by now, my brain is totally random. And to be honest, I really only share the watered-down versions of my thoughts, so you don’t think I’m an absolute freak. This was a conversation my husband and I had the other day…

Me: “What if ocean animals farted and their fart bubbles traveled to the top of the water and when it popped it made a melodic sound? Like each animal had a different and unique fart bubble sound. What would whales sound like?”

Hubby: “What would a jellyfish fart sound like?”

And yes, this conversation went on for another ten minutes or so with us naming underwater animals and then making the sounds that we think their “fart bubbles” would sound like. I’m so thankful I have a husband that not only puts up with my crazy, but goes along with it. What would a jellyfish fart sound like?!

Where’d That Bruise Come From?!

I’m sure I’ve written before what a total and complete klutz I am. It seems like walls just suddenly appear a millisecond before I run into them or the coffee table comes out of nowhere and takes my pinky toe off. But the worst part is that I will occasionally look down at my arms or legs and see a gigantic bruise and have no recollection of where it came from or when it happened. You see, when you walk into things constantly, it kind of becomes second nature and you forget it even happened. Like right now, I just looked down at my knee and saw a ton of scratches on it, but have no clue how it happened. I swear, if I continue this way, I’m going to break my hip from accidentally falling by the time I’m forty. Good thing I drink a lot of milk to fortify my bones. ;)
