God Bless Martha

You know that moment when you wake up and realize that it's Saturday, and joy washes over you?  I was there at about 6:30am.  Then around 6:32 I remembered that I have to work today.  For free.  On a boring project.  While BB goes on a bike ride and shops for houses.  Even my cat pitied me until it was time for his first morning nap.

So the grocery store started selling little pumpkins and gourds this week and now I'm really in the mood for fall (doesn't hurt that it's going to be over 100 degrees today).  Where else does one go when in the mood for fall, but Martha Stewart??  Look at this fabulous idea for a little pumpkin scent diffuser (the instructions are here)

Music for a Friday

Really loving this by Mat Kearney

and this by Train


I seem to be growing bigger by the minute.  Maybe it wouldn't concern me if I hadn't read about a 19-pound baby born in Indonesia.  Anyway, I need to start shopping for maternity clothes.  Why is so much of it so boring??  It should be said that I'm relatively cheap when it comes to clothes.  I don't do $200 jeans, and am reluctant to buy even $100 maternity jeans that I don't intend to wear for very long.  Not that jeans need to be interesting, but it would be nice if they fit well.  There are unlimited quantities of maternity t-shirts, though.  How exciting.

Congrats to BB for getting some major respect yesterday at work!!  It's well-deserved and, as always, I'm proud of you!!

It's become apparent that, for me, that pregnancy glow I always hear about is actually greasy skin.  Couple that with the fact that I'm showing only to to point of looking like I've had one too many jelly doughnuts and I'm feeling quite attractive these days.

BB is off to more concerts tonight.  The doctor has warned that if I need ear plugs then I shouldn't be there.  Once the baby comes we'll have to get ear muffs for him or her.  Has anyone used these with any success  (from here)?

Another week goes by...

and we achieved a few things:

-Another appointment with the doctor, and all is well.

-Meeting with the morgtage loan officer. It's possible that I'm too cheap to enjoy the process and excitement of buying our first home.

-Home from a quick vacation in Estes Park with my fun sister and brother-in-law.  The picture is of a couple of elk behind our camp site.

-Ate too much at another San Gennaro Feast. Apologies go out to my tiny fetus for the greasy pizza.

-Started Body Pump classes again for the first time since my knee injury, with trepidation.

Now on to more pressing matters. I need this from Isabella Oliver. It might make me feel better about doubling in size. (
