We're baaaack!

Vacations are never long enough, are they? Even though we had a good 5 days of absolutely nothing on the schedule, I am absolutely confident that I could have used another 5, or 10! Anyway, overall it was a great trip. Here's a few snippets:

-My birthday was great, and I do think that I received just about everything on my wishlist an THEN some, including a set of awesome plastic Disney glasses (I think they were from Burger King back in the early 90's), which I think are the perfect size glasses, and routinely steal from my parent's house. And a gorgeous pair of earrings from J.

-Julie & Julia was FANTASTIC. Loved it.

-I read The Time Traveler's Wife, which I did enjoy, but I've decided that I'll be waiting until I'm not pregnant to see the movie. I actually wish I had done the same for the book...I really had no idea that pregnancy loss would be such a prominent underlying theme in the book. Anyway, after I finished that, I raided the cabin library for a book that I hadn't read before, and ended up picking up Love Walked In by Maria De Los Santos. It wasn't til the books were next to each other that I realized how similar the covers are:

And they both have main characters named Clare. And both include disappearing main characters. Weird. Anyway, here's a shot of the house/cabin that we stayed in. Don't mind J showing you his belly. I don't know why...

As much as it pains me to see pictures of myself right now because I feel like a blob, here's a shot of Justin and I on the deck that I don't absolutely despise with every fiber of my being. I know...I need to be easier on myself, because I'm doing pretty well for being almost half way through, but these body changes are a mind trip, and I really do feel like a blob!
And here's Justin being the BBQ master of the burgers that I made. I stole Renee's burger recipe, made a couple of changes based on what we had available in the house, and cooked away. I'm telling you, these burgers could have been contenders in last week's Top Chef Masters episode!
-We dropped my brother and his friends off, and hit up my favorite pizza place. The owner was there, and came out and told me that he was just thinking the other morning that he hadn't seen me in awhile. We joked about how their pizza is my only pregnancy craving. I love that place... where else can you get a huge piece of pizza and a drink for $1.31 if you're in high school and only $2.36 if you're an adult?! Seriously, I could already eat another piece after just typing about it.


  1. Holy moly! That is a GREAT pizza deal. I think you look cute in the pic! Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

  2. You look great! Seriously. Although, I can see where you are coming from- I think I felt like a "blob" too until around 20-22 weeks when I started to look pregnant and not like a pro beer drinker. Glad you had a good vacay!

  3. looks like an AWESOME cabin! wow. It looks more like a house than a cabin.

    That is so weird about the books- the covers and names and disappearing people? weird.

    You do not look like a blob. at all. I hope that you can start to see that too.
