Bumpdate: 27 Weeks


December 17th – 23rd, 2013
 
Welcome to the 3rd Trimester Baby!
 
So what has been going on this week?
I had my birthday on the 20th, as well as my last monthly appointment and my glucose test. A weekend full of cookie baking and eating. And I FINALLY started (and almost finished) my Christmas shopping.
 
How far along?
27 Weeks.
 
Maternity Clothes?
Yeah. I can still wear some no-maternity tank tops and sweaters, but for the most part, I’m in it to win it.
 
Stretch Marks?
I’ve been slathering on Body Butter whenever I take a shower and things seem to be under control… for now…
 
Movement?
Dude is bumping. As usual. I found this Iphone app that lets you listen to the heartbeat. It isn’t perfect, but you can definitely tell but it requires me to press the phone down on my stomach and he always kicks it away. Cracks me up!
 
Food cravings?
I’ve been wanting cold veggies and fruit. I asked my parents to bring over some veggies and dip as an appetizer on my birthday and it was delicious. I’ve been eating the leftovers for days. I need to hit the grocery store and stock up. I’m sure this will be better than ice cream and such.
 
Nausea, vomiting, or sickness?
No. I honestly have to say, and I make sure to tell people this when I’m complaining about how much I don’t like being pregnant. I really don’t have anything to complain about. I was never sick. I’ve had a wonderful healthy pregnancy. It’s just not for me. But thank GOD no. No sickness.
 
What I miss:
Wine. Italian subs. Sleeping on my stomach. Not being tired. A waist line. Being able to put my shoes on without a struggle. Getting up from the couch without grunting. Not feeling like a poltergeist is going to rip through my belly button. Being able to do more than one thing in a day (I had family cookie baking and a girl’s dinner for my birthday in the same day and I almost didn’t make it)
 
Symptoms?
Just sore, tired, and dare I say it…emotional. To be fair, I’m a hot mess when I’m overtired anyway, so this isn’t anything new. But after two days of non-stop, I crawled into bed on Saturday and promptly burst into tears claiming that I was too tired to go to sleep. Big A keeps telling me that I’ll get my second wind and I told him that pregnant people don’t get second winds. They start the day at like…half wind. And that’s all you get.
 
Best moment this week?
Listening to the heartbeat is still one of the coolest things I’ve ever experienced. It sounds so different every time since he has grown so much between appointments. Even Big A noticed. We had the carpet people come and measure the upstairs, so things are moving along. The bedrooms should be done on the 27th. The bathroom is another story, but at least I can start on the nursery! Also, finishing up my monthly appointments. I feel like we are in the home stretch.
 
Workouts:
Ugh. Eff me. I just. I can’t. The weather sucks. There’s 12,000 things to do around the house. The DVD player is in the garage. I’m the Queen of excuses. I’m trying. I am. I just, I suck.
 
Gender:
BOY!
 
Sleep?
It’s hit or miss. Sometimes I’m great. Sometimes I have to pee. Sometimes I’m uncomfortable. Sometimes someone else is snoring. And Baby P’s new trick is to wake me up kicking and moving. While I can’t say that I handle this no sleep thing well, I CAN say that I’m prepared for the lack of sleep in my future. As long as I can sleep on my stomach for the 5 minutes I CAN sleep, it HAS to be better than this!
 
What I'm looking forward to?

Spending Christmas with family. While I’m not a huge fan of the family picture in my mammoth sized greatness, I’m still loving seeing everyone. It will be a productive week home getting things put together (I love saving my vacation time for this time of year!) and then we are into the New Year. As of January 1st, we have 76 days until my due date. Which might as well be tomorrow. Oh man… we’re having a BABY!

Friday's Letters

 
Oh 28... you're going to be a good year. You have to be. I mean, even if the only good thing to come out of next year is Baby P, then you're going to be a great year!
 
Dear Karma & Fate, the above mentioned comment was not a dare. I did not double dog dare you to make next year suck. Kind of like when I claimed yesterday was the best last day of 27 ever and nothing could bring me down, and then you stuck me with a blinding headache all night long. Thanks!
 
Dear Luna, you made my freaking LIFE. I mean... I know you are probably still making a 300% profit off us, but still. You made the carpet MORE than affordable and we are back on track.
 
Dear Big A, you're cute. The way you get so concerned for me now when I'm not feeling well is adorable. It makes me wonder why you never really cared before, or if you will ever really care again, but for right now you are cute! Haha.
 
Dear Dunkin Donuts, thanks for sending me a coupon for a free coffee the day before my birthday. I will definitely be using that after my appointment today.
 
Dear Self, please do not throw up the glucose test drink. I know it won't be the first time you have thrown up on your birthday, and probably not the last, but let's keep all of those alcohol related. Mmmmkay?
 
Dear Baby P, I don't know what you do in there, but your movements are weird. The big hits and kicks are cool, but the rolls are what freak me out the most. They feel so strange! I so thought you were going to be our sweet, calm little guy, but just like your father, you're always on the move.
 
Dear Christmas Shopping, feel free to do yourself. I mean. I'm apparently not going to do you, soooo....
 
Dear Aunts & Cousins, can't wait to see you all tomorrow for cookie baking!!! Although, I'll be squishing Baby M the whole time, so I will not be helping bake. HA!
 
Dear Big A, why are you so into getting Christmas cards out this year? I mean... since when do you care? But I do admire that at least one of us is all about sending them. Otherwise, they would probably still be sitting on our table!
 
Hope everyone has a fabulous Friday. And a wonderful last day of Fall (HA!). I'm looking forward to a fabulous birthday, a great weekend full of family and friends, and the fact that tomorrow is the shortest day of the year, so it can only get better from there!

Thursday Thoughts

 
I'm linking up with Jennifer over at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom!
 
Today is a little bittersweet. It's my last day as a 27 year old. Which means I am most definitely in my late 20's. I thought I was cool with getting older, but I think that I'm definitely someone who likes being in their 20's. I think I'd like to stay here forever. The whole getting older and being in my 80's weirds me out.
 
On the other hand, 28 is the age that I meet my sweet baby boy. And how can you not want THAT to happen? So, I think I need to turn 28, and then stay that age (alive) forever. Cool?
 
Anyway...
 
* I have been trying to check items off my to do list for quite some time now. Unfortunately, until the upstairs is done, I really can't do anything. However, I did go ahead and order my thank you notes for my shower. If you don't know about Kristen or Little Law's Prints, then you need to get to know them quick. She's amazing!  So, there may still be a toilet and a sink still sitting in the middle of my baby's room, BUT I have my thank you notes all set. BAM.
 
* We have Luna come out to measure and give us a quote to carpet the upstairs. Oh man, that guy was good. We got bamboozled. All of a sudden we were handing him a deposit and I was dropping a shit ton of money on carpet. After a mini cry sesh, I called them up and told them to come back out. I'm going for something cheaper (which this guy said this was their cheapest carpet but he's a fucking liar) or they can shit in a hat. I'll figure something out after.
 
* In true indecisive K mode, I've changed the color of the bathroom paint after professing my love for the first one and fighting with Big A over it. I have no idea what I'm changing it to, but it will be amazing. Don't worry, I have come up with no less than 3,000 projects to use the other color for. I don't like to waste things.
 
* There are no words that can describe the amount of excitement I have to see my family this weekend. Last year, my mom, my aunts, and my cousins started this tradition that we would bake cookies for Christmas. We drank mimosas and ate snacks and had SO much fun. So of course, I had to strong arm everyone and make sure that we did it again. I don't think anyone would have objected and they probably thought it was a definite, but I wasn't taking any chances. Also, my cousin will be there with her new baby and I already called third dibs! (After Mom and Grandma of course, I'm not messing with them!)
 
* I just learned that when you press the control key and the "I" at the same time it switches over to the web page you have open in the next tab. Interesting.
 
* I have yet to learn the random combination of keys you have to press that turns the font in my emails from normal to big, bold, purple. I do it like, twice a month. I don't understand. Why purple?
 
* Did anyone out there use a Snuza for their baby? I don't know if it is crazy overbearing Mama of me to want one, or if it just makes sense to get the peace of mind. I registered for one and I think that I'm either going to love it, or I'm going to use it twice and then return it. Thoughts?
 
* My pregnancy app warned me that my vision may decline during pregnancy today. Umm... ya think. I've become Mr. Magoo and things are most always fuzzy. Hopefully it all goes back to normal after. I've avoided wearing glasses for a long time. I'd rather not start now.
 
* I'm super excited that I don't have to cook again until probably next week. We have Big A's Christmas work dinner tonight, then my birthday tomorrow, then I am going out with some of my girl friends for dinner on Saturday, and then we do family dinner on Sundays. I love it when I don't have to cook.
 
Alright lovers, I leave you now at the young, sweet age of 27. I'll see you tomorrow, when I am an older and wiser 28.
 
28... blech...
 
P.S. Remember when Thursdays used to mean Thirsty Thursday. And Wednesdays were ladies' nights at the bar. And Friday and Saturday meant drinking too. I miss those days. Even though I probably drank too much then.

So What! Wednesday

Linking up with Shannon for So What! Wednesday!
 
This week I am saying So What! if...
 
* I think this whole snow thing isn't so bad. Big A makes money. I get to leave work early or just hang out in my warm house under my blanket. And I don't have to do anything outside in the cold if I don't want to. (Don't worry, I'll hate it again next year when I have to shovel again)
 
* I'm loving that Saved by the Bell has been on TV lately. I've been recording them and watching them when I get home from work.
 
* I'm totally digging this whole working from home thing. We have the carpet people coming to measure and quote us on how much it will be to carpet upstairs, so I'm working from home this morning so I don't have to use any time off. I'm loving this whole working in my pjs, under a blanket, in front of the TV. It's going to be so much better when there's a baby to squish too! (Much harder to work, but who cares, he'll be worth it)
 
* I haven't done ANY Christmas shopping. None. And while my Christmas cards are all written and addressed, I have not sent them. I'm not a Scrooge, my house is all decorated, I'm just lazy.
 
* I'm dreading my appointment on Friday. I don't want to do the glucose test and I DEFINITELY don't want to see how much weight I've gained. Do you think I could go to the appointment naked? That's how I weigh myself at home and it always works out so much better than at the doctor's!
 
* I know that I'm supposed to be all "the miracle of life"  and this is "magical", but all I am doing is counting down the days until he is a) here and b) I can start getting my body back in shape.
 
* I hate the episodes of Saved by the Bell with Tori in them. She's just a cheap excuse for Kelly. And yes, there are two Saved by the Bells points in today's SWW!
 
* I'm annoyed that I got a call from my boss at 7:30 this morning telling me that he asked me to explain something to the admin at the building he is at today and he thinks I didn't. Or at least wasn't clear enough. I'm not sure how much more clear I could have been than "We are giving them all shirts. They are divided in bags by supervisor. Each bag has a list of names and shirt  sizes. Please make sure the supervisors get their bags and hand them out." I mean... it's not rocket science.
 
* I'm bummed that I completely forgot that I was going to go look for a Christmas outfit last weekend. Now, I don't know when I'm going to have time and I don't want to wear anything I own. Boooooo.
 
* I can't believe that Christmas is in a week. Like...7 days...this year has FLOWN by. Here's hoping the first three months of 2014 fly too! (And then slows down so that my baby will be a baby forever)
 
* I was super excited to learn that you are actually supposed to be keeping an eye on your registry to make sure there are no problems. Of course, that applies to making sure that gifts you have received were taken off the registry rather than just straight out stalking it... whoops...
 
That's all for today. I'm off to get some actual work done so people think I'm productive. And decide if it is inappropriate to be wearing yoga pants when the carpet people come or if I should put on real people pants!

Bumpdate: 26 Weeks


December 10th – 16th, 2013
 
So what has been going on this week?
We had a big snowstorm over the weekend. FINALLY finished painting the nursery furniture. Although, now I thought of more furniture that we need in there and how it should be painted. Haha. It will never end.
 
How far along?
26 Weeks.
 
Maternity Clothes?
Yeah. I can still wear some no-maternity tank tops and sweaters, but for the most part, I’m in it to win it.
 
Stretch Marks?
Haven’t seen anymore. The ones that were there aren’t that bad. I’m hoping it stays that way.
 
Movement?
Dude is on the move. Seriously. Big A has felt him so much lately. It’s been really cool to finally share that with him.
 
Food cravings?
I need to kick the ice cream. I don’t even “need” it. It’s just there. I told Big A to enjoy it while it lasts because I won’t be eating ice cream anymore when the babe is here.
 
Nausea, vomiting, or sickness?
Not really. Just tired and run down lately, but that’s to be expected.
 
What I miss:
Wine. Italian subs. Sleeping on my stomach. Not being tired. A waist line. Being able to put my shoes on without a struggle. Getting up from the couch without grunting. Not feeling like a poltergeist is going to rip through my belly button.
 
Symptoms?
Rib pain. Feeling a little uncomfortable. I went to the doctor because I was having trouble breathing and I felt like my heart was going to beat out of my chest. I get it periodically, but it was really bad that day. The doctor did an ekg and blood work, but couldn’t find anything. She wants to send me to a consult with pulmonary just to make sure it’s just a wacky pregnancy symptom and I’m not dying. So that was fun.
 
Best moment this week?
Realizing that this was my last week in my 2nd trimester. I am ready to get this show on the road. Let’s gooooo!
 
Workouts:
Ugh. Eff me. I just. I can’t. The weather sucks. There’s 12,000 things to do around the house. The DVD player is in the garage. I’m the Queen of excuses. I’m trying. I am. I just, I suck. Ditto for this week.
 
Gender:
BOY!
 
Sleep?
It’s hit or miss. I slept like crap Sunday night. I slept awesome on Friday and Saturday. Last night was OK. I’m just getting uncomfortable. And my back, shoulders, and hips hurt from sleeping on the same spot. I’m looking forward to having my sleep mobility back!
 
What I'm looking forward to?
My birthday on the 20th, Christmas, the New Year (aka the year of the baby!). Spending time with family. And continuing to count down those days until baby boy is HERE!  Definitely NOT looking forward to my appointment on Friday where I get my glucose test and I'm sure another lovely opinion about my weight.
Fun Comments from People this week:
My mom realizing that the baby is the size of a head of lettuce, or an eggplant. And her saying that is "freaking huge" and it might as well be a Toyota. Then she said that these websites with the sizes would have freaked her out when she was pregnant. I said the websites aren't the problem, it's people like her that make statements like "it might as well be a Toyota". Thanks Mom!
Big A made some comment the other day about me being 7 months pregnant. I was a little surprised that he realized how far along I am (it won't really be 7 months until next week, but still... he's close). He said he pays more attention then I think. Then I told him last night that I thought I was going to burst. And he said it must be another growth spurt. That every 5-7 days I complain about things feeling big and tight and I'm uncomfortable, so that must be when he's growing. I thought it was so cute that he noticed.
The random guy at work who was asking me a question, noticed my mammoth sized stomach, and blurted out, "There's a baby in there?!". Umm... yes... yes there is... weird...
The pics are blurry this week. I'm not sure why. Although I am super excited that there's no dog hair on the floor this week!

So What! Wednesday

 
Linking up with Shannon for So What! Wednesday!
 
This week I'm saying So What! if...
 
* I downloaded a water app to help remind me to drink more water, and I still suck at it. At least I'm consciously aware of how much I suck at it now!
 
* I have a whole bunch of things that I need to do for work and I have no motivation to do any of them. At all.
 
* Speaking of no motivation...I haven't started my Christmas shopping yet.
 
* I spent last night torturing my family by taking pictures with my new camera. We never take pictures (my dad will tell you otherwise, but since I've never seen any of these pictures or this invisible camera he talks of, I'm sticking to my guns on this one). It was my Nanny's 89th birthday last night and pictures NEEDED to be taken. We even got a family picture of everyone. That we haven't had in YEARS.
 
* I had to give myself a pep talk about how I looked in the family picture last night. I'll probably elaborate more on this at some point, but sometimes it is hard to accept the changes my body is going through. I learned that I need to focus on all of the amazing things it is doing and not that it looks Mammoth sized in pictures.
 
* I'm not that into my birthday this year. I don't know if it is the alcohol restriction or if I'm just feeling like there's more important things going on, but I'm kind of meh about it.
 
* I'm super pissed that I just spent the better part of a week yelling at the company I ordered my friend's baby shower invites from, only to finally get them delivered and find that they are micro mini sized and my first reaction was to call them up and scream at them AGAIN. What the fuck?
 
* I know I really need to get my ass moving so that I don't gain 1,000 pounds, but I don't.
 
* I have still have not realized yet that I should get my ass moving because it will make me healthy and a healthy body helps make a healthy baby. Health is important here. Not looks.
 
* Sometimes I get nervous that they are going to come out with some study saying that long term use of gel nail polish will make you grow a tail or something like that, but then I don't really care because my nails look good.
 
* My desk is a mess, my house is a mess, my life is a mess. And I do nothing about it. Meh.
 
* I didn't even realize that I could no longer see my feet when I stand up. No clue how long ago that happened.
 
* I don't feel like working anymore. Ever. I wish I could afford to stay home when we have the baby, but nope. I just don't feel like dealing with people anymore.

Bumpdate: 25 Weeks


December 3rd – 9th, 2013
 
So what has been going on this week?
Got our Christmas tree. Celebrated one year in our house (that we forgot about until yesterday). Continued working on painting the nursery furniture (almost done!). Etc. Etc. We hit the 99 day mark on 12/9/13!
 
How far along?
25 Weeks.
 
Maternity Clothes?
Yeah. I can still wear some no-maternity tank tops and sweaters, but for the most part, I’m in it to win it.
 
Stretch Marks?
Dun dun duuuun. I found them. A couple small ones on the inside of my thighs. Which I guess isn’t that big of a deal since no one will probably ever see t hem. BUT, I got Body Butter and I’m giving that a whirl. Maybe it will calm things down.
 
Movement?
I don’t know what’s got into this dude, but he is on the move. It’s funny, I was telling Big A that every time I’m thinking I haven’t felt him in awhile, he moves. It’s like he reads my mind and says “I’m right here Mom, I’m fine!”. And it is fun to see which food really get him going. I had pancakes and orange juice for breakfast yesterday, woah man. He must have had a major sugar rush.
 
Food cravings?
Ice cream is good. But I’m not DYING for it now that I’ve had it. Goldfish are a good staple if I get in a jam and am hungry. I just found this new granola cereal that rocked my socks, so that will probably be my new obsession for the week. And water is my new best friend. I need it. All the time. The colder the better.
Nausea, vomiting, or sickness?
No. I honestly have to say, and I make sure to tell people this when I’m complaining about how much I don’t like being pregnant. I really don’t have anything to complain about. I was never sick. I’ve had a wonderful healthy pregnancy. It’s just not for me. But thank GOD no. No sickness.
 
What I miss:
Wine. Italian subs. Sleeping on my stomach. Not being tired. A waist line. Being able to put my shoes on without a struggle. Getting up from the couch without grunting. Not feeling like a poltergeist is going to rip through my belly button.
 
Symptoms?
Still got the super rib pain. I’ve been getting a lot of stretching pain near my belly button. Like dude’s about to bust through like the Kool-aid guy on Family Guy! I just feel sore and stretched.
 
Best moment this week?
I’m still just amazed when I feel him move around. It really is such a trip. I mean, there’s a life, inside me. So weird. While I definitely don’t think I’ll miss the feeling, I’m going to enjoy it while I have it.
Workouts:
Ugh. Eff me. I just. I can’t. The weather sucks. There’s 12,000 things to do around the house. The DVD player is in the garage. I’m the Queen of excuses. I’m trying. I am. I just, I suck.
 
Gender:
BOY!
 
Sleep?
Doing OK. I wake up to pee most nights, which isn’t that bad since I’ve been falling right back to sleep. Sunday night I was awake from 4:00-5:30 AM (obviously on a work night, never on a weekend) for no reason at all. Fell asleep right as my alarm was going off. Eff me. I was hoping it wasn’t a pattern. And it wasn’t. I slept right through last night, which is a big deal even when I wasn’t pregnant. I feel like a whole different person when I get a good night’s sleep.
 
What I'm looking forward to?
Getting the nursery and the upstairs finished so that I can start getting everything together. Hearing the heartbeat again next week. Turning 28, the age I will meet my son. Christmas.  
Dude. Woah. I looked at Big A and he was like, "wow". So I said I thought it was SO MUCH bigger than yesterday and he said, "uh, yeah, that's because it probably is. It's huge!" Isn't he so sweet?

Monday Rambles

Good Morning Lovers!
 
Happy Monday!
 
I woke up to a lightly snow covered ground that was quickly turning into a sheet of ice as the freezing rain started. Happy "eat shit on the ice" Day in Massachusetts! Hooray!
 
I won't complain about the weather though. We need snow like nobody's business. Mama needs oil in her tank. And an existent savings account.
 
In other news... this happened today.
 
 
Double digits my friends. That's pretty much tomorrow.
 
And while my house is nowhere near ready, and everyone else tells me to slow down, I am more than ready to meet this Little Man and March can't come soon enough.
 
I'm telling him to stay cooking, no need to come early because Mama is impatient. But I did tell him that two weeks early was acceptable and to plan for that is he likes.
 
So... we will see.
 
In other pregnancy news, this kid definitely has his father's sweet tooth.
 
Much to my doctor's dismay, I am eating shit I have never eaten before. Regularly.
 
The current: Vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce, Reese's pieces, and whipped cream. Redic.


 
I try to limit the portions. This is a whole lot of whipped cream. Plus, if I eat too much I get a stomach ache, so that helps me not eat an entire carton.
 
We got our Christmas Tree last week and actually brought it into the house on Thursday. There he sat until Friday when I put lights on him, but we have never had a tree this big so we didn't have enough lights.
 
A quick trip to Walmart and we fixed that.

 
His name is Darius. And we love him.
 
He still doesn't have ornaments on him, but I'm told that's on the agenda for this evening.
 
We may rush big life decisions and get married, buy a house, and have a baby all in a year, but we take our time when it comes to decorating our Christmas Tree.
 
You can't rush these things!
 
The weekend brought more baby things. Mumsie and I almost completed painting all of the nursery furniture. The crib was delivered (eek!) and so was my new camera. (Because I can't take pictures of my precious baby boy with a crappy camera! Happy Black Friday to ME!)
 
Sunday, I dragged my fat ass to our friends' house to watch the game because I haven't been in weeks. It wasn't that cold out and it wasn't a night game so I figured I could show face. It was a pretty intense game and I'm glad I went. We totally didn't deserve to win, but we somehow pulled a big "W" out of our ass.
 
Just a quick moment of silence for Gronk's knee... that looked like it HURT!
 
Now we are back to Monday again. These weeks are flying by. I've got a busy week of my grandmother's birthday and our Holiday Wine Night this weekend which I'm super excited about. I've been stalking Pinterest for Christmas themes cupcakes all weekend!
 
Then next week, we celebrate the National Holiday that is the day of my birth! 28 is probably going to be the craziest year of my life, but I can't wait!
 
And that's my modge podge of things for this morning. I'll be preparing for my Winter hibernation. I hope all of you are somewhere safe and warm.
 
Except for you people in warm climates... I hope you people are cold!
 
Haha. I kid... kind of...

Friday's Letters

 
I woke up this morning wondering why my alarm was going off on a Saturday. Imagine my surprise when I realized that it was Friday and I was supposed to be at work in 5 minutes.
 
Thank God people don't care when I come into work, otherwise I probably would have been fired a thousand times by now. Oops.
 
Here we go...
 
Dear Big A, thanks for being such a trooper and going to get a tree with me the other night. You are beginning to recognize battles that you will not win and that's a good thing for our marriage. Hehe. And when I said he (yes he, the tree has a name and everything) needed to come in last night, you brought him right in. You're too good to me.
 
Dear December, holy shit. You're here. And Christmas is right around the corner. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed by how quick things are going, but I'm going to ride with it. Quick times means Baby Boy will be here, so I'm down. Just... go easy on me.
 
Dear Snow, I know most people are going to hate me for saying this (except N who likes having oil in her tank for the Winter as well) but I'm ready. This whole 50-60 degree thing is nice, but I'm stuck in the office all day and can't enjoy it, so you might as well go away. We need snow. Some nice lovely snow storms that are going to put some money in our account. Seeing as how our renovations have completely depleted our savings account. (Oh what fun it is to have an empty bank accooooount. < Please make sure you sing that to the tune of Jingle Bells)
 
Dear Work, you are the bee's knees and I appreciate you working out a deal with me for when Baby Boy is born. I promise I will work super hard and make it worth your while. I'm so excited that I'll be able to be home with him two days a week. NOW if I can only figure out the last two days of childcare, that would be perfect.
 
Dear N, thanks for getting everyone together for my birthday dinner. I know you think it isn't a big deal, but not having to plan things or call for a reservation is pretty exciting to me. I just want to show up and stuff my face. You're the best.
 
Dear Stretchmarks, I found where you've been hiding. You're so clever. I'm going to need to slather on some serious stuff and hope that they go away. The good news is that they are on the insides of my thighs so the chance of the general population seeing them isn't big since I've decided against my lucrative porn career after I get my pre-baby body back. (I kid...well... not about NOT going into porn. I was never going into it. I was just saying that there's only one person who will probably see them and I blame him for getting them, so he can deal. Haha)
 
Dear Birthday, I'm super excited about you. As always. I find it a bit unfair that you are on a Friday and I can't drink, but I'll make up for that next year. I'm more than ready to enter the wild world of 28. That number feels right, so I have no issues about getting older this year. However, I have to take my glucose test, so... be nice!
 
Dear Christmas Tree, Big A thinks that it was just a nice little idea to decorate you tonight, but we are going to whether he likes it or not. There's not point in having a Christmas Tree and not have it decorated. You are going to look so FABULOUS!
 
Alright, I suppose I should do some actual work today since I haven't been at my desk all week and I'm WAY behind.
 
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
