My Life in Bullets

Alright, I'm followin the trend!

  • My pregnancy dreams are getting out of control! One minute I'm in Thailand fighting off snakes, the next I'm back home gettin dirty- Draper style, and the night before I was kidnapped trying to get my twitter followers to call 911 for me. I have an over active imagination sometimes...
  • Go freakin comment on my guest blog on Mommypotamus!!!! NOW! I can win my own blogger domain, a fancy schmancy blog, and hosting for a YEAR!
  • Lily is a trash digger. No for real. We haven't been able to fill up a trash can in so long because she gets down in there and pulls out egg shells and banana peels and general gross things.
  • I've gone to bed the past two nights before 9 pm while reading. And I'm not ashamed.Which leads me to my next bullet...
  • I read, and loved The Shack. Lemme be REAL honest for a sec...I didn't want to read it because most of the people that rave about it are way more wholesome than I and think that any representation of God where He doesn't have a white flowy beard, balding head, pudgy tummy and sit on a thrown on top clouds is just OUT THERE... So I was EXTREMELY skeptical going in. But man oh challenged me, broke me, helped heal some DEEP wounds, and entertained me for a few nights. All that said...go read it!
  • Yesterday, I'm not exactly sure what was going on, but I became quite fearful for Baby Love's life...weird cramps and contractions but no spotting. I had great friends and my midwife praying for me and it all stopped shortly after. What a relief! I can't believe I doubt God even though He blesses me unconditionally.
  • Tonight there Ann Crowell and I are hosting a Baby wearing demo and Cloth diaper show by Hip Green Baby at the Gentle Beginnings Birth Center in Hurst! If you are in the area, COME SEE US! 7 pm!
  • I feel my sexiest and most confident when I'm pregnant. Yup...apart from the first few weeks of "No way, you did this to me, GO AWAY" and the last few weeks of "Nuh Uh! Nothings comin in here till this thing comes out!" my husband is a very grateful man when I'm pregnant. As a result we are on the same page A LOT more..and who wouldn't be happy about that?!
  • My upstairs neighbors REAL! I am going to dedicate a post to them soon and maybe even write a book about them...but Lily and I watched ecstatically from the window as load by load they moved stuff down from their apartment. It's been a nightmare ladies and gents, but I'm glad it's OVER!
  • Sometimes I wish I was more secure in my racial identity...or lack thereof.
  • Go read this right now. I'm sure there are a lot of you out there can relate...I laughed a good bit during the entirety of this!

I know, I know...I'm an awful blogger. But YOU try throwing up, cleaning poop, breaking up interspecies fights and blogging all at once.

But I will be back this evening with a short update of how everything is going.


The Mommypotamus is on maternity leave, but she didn't want to leave her readers bored. So she opened this amazing contest to help her out. She's having a guest blogger every day for a few weeks to give her a break. The person with the most comments on their blog post gets their very own fancy schmancy blog and their own domain FOR A YEAR!!!

People, I'm the most hilarious, beautiful, wise woman you know! And a pathological liar at times...but that's not the point. Go to my post [it's open for comments til the last blogger blogs!] and comment your heart out!!!! Get your friends to comment, your cat to comment, or even that person in high school that you dread will one day find you and want to be your friend even though they were evil to comment. [My brain is...much too crowded today...]

Get to gettin!

And yes...I realize that my post may be the only one that isn't breaking new ground on "scientific analysis of why organic blah blah blah does blah blah blah for the blah blah blah" or that it isn't as sentimental as "why my baby's head smells better than anything in the whole wide world"'s still awesome. GO COMMENT!!!!

See ya lata!

Labor Day Pictures

Even though today's weather is no indication, yesterday's was absolutely perfect. We went to the lake with our friends Katie and Dusty and their little boy Henry.

The Browning/Burke gang
I don't know WHY this picture is so big...but whatevs, she's amazing.
Henry, Lily's boyfran
Skinny, tall family...
Short chubby family...that forgot their swimgear :] We got in anyway!
The men fished...or something like it [Eamon was behind the camera, so no pics of him :[

All in all, we had a great day. Food plus water makes for a happy pregnant lady :] Hope you all had time to relax with your families!

Labor Day Weekend

Today we went to a water park :] I've been looking for something like this ALL SUMMER, but Eamon found it yesterday...the day before it closes, of course. So today we went to Freebird's, ate like kings [uuuuuuh...I have never in my life had trouble eating a bird, but man OH MAN...this was hard...Little One had me barf-bound all day.] and went to the park for a few hours, it was GREAT!

We didn't get many pictures because we were having SO MUCH FUN, but I did get this picture of Lily eating her "Baby Bird" [the lady that made hers wrapped it like a burrito so I looked in our bag and there were two regular sized burritos and one itty bitty one...almost died] during her break [AHEM...during the "mama just made a huge ass out of herself and busted her lip and almost drowned in the kiddy pool...I wish I was making this up] How could you not love her? HOOOOW?!?!?

And here's a belly shot of this week :] I've still got a lot of extra skin from when I lost all my baby weight that I'm still not too happy about, but hey, shake whatchya workin with, right?

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!!!
