my not-so-dirty 30

It happened...I turned 30. Yes, it is sad, but I have heard 30 is the new 20, so bring it on (I guess).
I had a great "b-day week". Yes, week. I swear only women understand this concept of the b-day week. It starts when that first friend wants to take you to lunch. I just don't think guys take their guy friends to lunch, so they don't get a b-day week.

On my actual b-day Jess bought me flowers and we went to dinner w/ my parents.

A few days later, my best friend Eileen, coordinated a dinner for me at the Red Iguana. Surprisingly, a lot of people showed up! It was fabulous!

Then most of us headed over to the Urban Lounge for some live Samba music.

I guess this pose is no longer sexy when you are 6 months prego!

I wish I had more pictures to post, but for some reason I am getting horribly lazy at taking them these days!

I just want to thank everyone for the b-day wishes!

the splits

I think the last time I did the splits was in ballet when I was probably 5 years old. I was much smaller and much, much more flexible back then! Well, I did them again last night...completely involuntarily!

Yes, while getting into my car, my shoe slipped on some flat piece of plasitc and sent my front foot flying out in front of me. I swear, I am surprised my pants did not rip. I am laughing now while writing this, but it was definitely NOT funny then!

I was already completely pissed off that I had gone WAY out of my way to 2 natural gas stations and the pumps were down at both. I finally got gas at a pump that said it was broken (yes I filled up anyway because I was NOT going any further) and got a measly 2 gallons (I guess you have to know how this natural gas thing works...Veronica can sympathize).

So I pick myself up, screaming obscenities, get in my car and just start sobbing. I know, so pathetic, but I needed it.

I am sooo sore! I think I completely streched out my groin muscles. It really does not help that I am 20 lbs. heavier w/ child in womb. I guess it could be worse...I could have fallen wrong and hurt the baby or could have shattered my ankle like our poor cousin, Chamaine, did while she was 9 months prego!

For now, if you see me waddling, you know why!

mx casey

My sister in law, Casey, got a dirt bike, so we took her out to the little field by my house to teach her to ride.

Sure as hell don't fit in these anymore!

Yes, I rode 5 months prego, BUT I took it easy for the most part. Go ahead, nominate me for "parent of the year" already!

Casey and her husband, Dan

hammer, ice, and boyz II men part 2

Yes folks, I had a week of reliving my youth in the 90's! It was fabulous and it was all thanks to Rosie for hooking me up! It all started with the MC Hammer/Vanilla Ice concert:
Rosie's attire was amazing!

Apparently pics copied from Facebook are tiny? Here is Chelsea, Rosie, and, me.

Miniture picture of MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice. Rosie got much better pics than me because she stuck it out up front in the crowd. My prego but was done after the opening band, so I sat in the seats above. Good thing because the show lasted until 12:30 am! Too late for this prego!

On our way to Wendover for the Boyz II Men concert!

It was the exact same show we saw in August, but I didn't mind...I love these guys! This was Rosie's 3rd time seeing them!

I decided to shake it for a minute...but just for a minute!

After the show we cruised around the lovely town of Wendover (LOL). We found these MOLDY "Whipper Snackers" (beef jerky) at a gas station and this guy:

WENDOVER WILL...the only thing worth looking at in Wendover, NV.

Hope you enjoyed my BIG and small pictures...I am pissed.

baby is a comin'!

Things are coming right along. Time has flown! I have not done much with the baby's room yet, but here are a few pics. I am actually really overwhelmed with all I need to buy!
Baby Abby has lots of clothes already! Hence, why I do overtime at work!

Belly is a growin'!

Jess's belly is doing anything but growing, but apparently he thinks maternity shorts are comfy as well!


the stretchiness

So after 20 weeks of pregnancy (I am actualy 22 weeks here) I decided to give in to the maternity pants. I went to work one day about 2 weeks ago in my own pants with just the top button undone. I was thrilled with myself, until about 4 hours of sitting down when I found myself bloating in my chair with everything undone! I eventually went to my car and got my stretchy gym shorts because I could not handle it anymore. Then I knew it was time...maternity pants came out. Thanks Casey for letting me borrow them!
