I had a pretty darn good weekend this W/E!! Im glad to see that everyone seems to be doing okay...
On Saturday I went to our area LLL conference! It was fantastic! There's just something really
about being surrounded by hundreds of nursing mommas, and seeing dads carry sling babies and care for toddlers while moms are in session. I got to see some great speakers, and I met Suzanne Arms, a huge birth celebrity!! That was probably the highlight of the day. I made myself super late for one of my sessions cause I was talking to her. She has been a huge inspiration on my life the last few years, and I can probably guarantee each of you know at least one thing she's written or seen at least one of her photos or videos. It was so awesome to meet her and talk to her about changing the future. Shes amazing.
Anyway, I'll stop gushing, LOL...
Today I took both kiddos out shopping. Not normally a good idea, but DH was meeting up with a friend of his, so big deal. The children weren't awful and I actually found everything I was looking for in the most unlikely place (Target). i had planned to be quick there and shop at the mall, but it ended up the other way around. I've been looking for some xl jeans since my rear is growing out of my larges ( traitorous bottom!) and found a pair there, although they have the full frontal belly which Ive come to really hate. Its still better than feeling like a sausage, and since Ive been looking for xl everywhere with no luck, I bought them. I even bought a size larger than I fit into, with shrinkage and another month of poundage on my thighs they should still fit.
I also found a pair of stretchy slinky black pants that just felt so good i had to buy them, they dont have a panel, so theyll be great for the next 6 months while I work my way up and back down the scale. I found nursing bras (GASP!) in my size (never easy to find) and ON SALE, so I added to my collection...
Then we went to the mall for lunch, LOL.
Overall, a pretty damn productive (and expensive) weekend.
I put away all the childrens winter clothes about two weeks ago, so it was chilly all this week. I was happy that I kept a couple things out just in case. I've also started clearing out the garage in hopes of getting my dh to help my really clean it before MIL gets here.
Yikes, MIL!! She's coming in three weeks and staying until the baby's born! Yippee!! Im excited that she will be here for the birth of the baby, but a little anxious too. I have no idea how she feels about HB and Im afraid I'll feel like a watched pot. Im also kinda afraid she'll want me to eat weird stuff, LOL... anyway, I just wish she wasn't leaving so soon after the baby will be born, thats when I'll need help.
I need to start cleaning... I need to start NOW. Can someone lend me some nesting hormones?
Congrats Rynna, on finding out its a girl!!
