All I Have Energy For

So I’m pretty tired, but I thought I could at least put some pictures up for your enjoyment. The photos by the Christmas tree are the day after Thanksgiving at 37 weeks. The pics on our porch are at 38 weeks WITH the beautiful new camera. The pictures with Linus are also taken with the new camera, just playing around. I love the camera. I love it. It’s pretty wonderful. That’s all for now. This 38.5 week pregnant lady is signing off to take a walk downtown, enjoy the pretty lights and WARM weather, perhaps grab a drink and de-swell with my boo. Puff Chick, we are ready to meet you:)


I did it:)

I did it…finally! I have been saving and saving for a few years, really. Last night, I bought my camera. I struggled to click the “complete order” button, but with much encouragement from Seth and confirmation that it was ok to spend the money I’ve been saving, I did it! I have a hard time spending money, especially a lot of money. I can almost always justify saving it longer (my parents taught me well). I got a great deal as well which makes my frugal heart very happy.

So anyway, I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving. We enjoyed ours with lots a great friends and good conversation! Being officially “full-term” today, I will not only be awaiting the arrival of our baby, but also this beauty…

Relax and Put Your Feet Up…

What did we do this weekend? Tried to take it easy because I’ve been on the brink of getting sick for days now. Despite my best vitamin-pumping-more-downtime-extra-relaxing efforts, I woke up feeling worse today. Not terrible, just yucky and stuffed up. Maybe my efforts paid off and this is the worst I’ll feel or maybe it’s just beginning. I will hope for the former, but take it easy in case of the latter. Needless to say, here are some bump pictures and photos from our chilled out weekend.
