No, i haven't forgotten about the blog again...

I haven't had anything to blog about lately.... I've been waiting on this baby to arrive. She is still in there now. A few minutes ago my belly had a knee poking out about 2 or so inches. I can't wait to meet her little knees and elbows in person. I have become quite well aquainted with them :) I had all kinds of keep-me-busy things planned until Tuesday when we go in to be induced, BUT on Friday my Dr freaked me out by putting me on bedrest until i go into labor. My blood pressure was quite high and i had been having some placenta issues. Anyways, I have had NOTHING to do but watch movies and TV and eat.... BORING! Especially when you are waiting on THE most exciting thing ever to happen!!! Also, my camera got confiscated by Andy(to the hospital bag) so that is another reason i haven't blogged anything. So i am posting a few old pictures of my sis and i and Rebekah and David's trip to Grand Canyon. Technically this trip was my sister's honeymoon... hahaha which makes it even funnier that Rebekah and i got to tag along. So I am posting these in honor of Dear Sister who is about to fly home just to see our new arrival this next weekend. Thanks for all the loving and memories dear sissypoo. (PS You make me want to try for a sweet sissy for Josie right away.)

The dresser after:

I finished J's room this past week. This was my final project... the dresser. Now all is complete! Kelly Wortham made those AdorabLe letters hanging over the dresser BTW!

My view from the computer

Looking down over my baby bump, little suggy boogy is asleep on the floor.

Fruit Salad

Usually Andy and i eat spinach salads for lunch. However, in the latter stages of pregnancy i have become green saladed out. So we switched to fruit salads :) At the beginning of the week i prep a big bowl of chopped strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, grapes, ect. Whatever i fancy that week.

Then all we have to do for a lunch is scoop some fruit into tupperware and top it with yogurt. Of course it isn't complete without some lowfat granola from Aldi.

And Lucy always manages to beg off a strawberry or two.

After being prompted with meows, I didn't refill her food bowl because there was still a little left..... This is what ensued shortly thereafter.

Yes, that is our kitchen table upon which she sits.

Baby Burn

I got all my baby bottles and pacifiers sterilized this week.....

Unfortunately it was at a cost :(

I scalded myself pretty bad with boiling water. The lamest part is that it happened on my day off so after that i got NOTHING done. Oh well.

My new kicks!

The 80's are back baby! I love my new bright blue Nike's! They have a matching workout outfit that is going to inspire me to get back in shape once baby J arrives :)

What I'm eating these pregnant days.....

A wonderful splurge in every sense of the word from Aldi! Isn't is beautiful? And yes that is a cookie on top and a cookie on the bottom.
