I wayyy overextended myself with dinner last night. I was craving stuffing, so I got home, baked cornbread, cooked some Italian sausage, and put together a sausage-cranberry cornbread stuffing. I also cooked some sweet potatoes, biscuits, made cranberry sauce, and cooked some turkey tenderloins I had marinated in soy sauce, rosemary, and mustard. It was such a good meal, but not worth being on my feet for an hour and a half!
DH and I watched Girls and Togetherness, then listened to HP in bed for a little while (we're on POA, he's never read the books!!!) before I fell asleep.
My boss is out of town all week, so work is fairly relaxing but I really want to kick ass this week and get some big projects done, since I may be talking to him about my post-baby plans next week (I'm asking for 3 WFH days a week).
@Swazzle - Way to go on getting up early to work out AGAIN!!!
@southernpeach89 - I'm raging for you. SPOILING your infant daughter by HOLDING her too much? People are stupid.
@southernpeach89 - I'm annoyed your dinner wasn't perfect! I hope the food (& wine) were delicious at least!!
@Swazzle - I am SO impressed that you woke up and worked out this morning. Keep it up!!! I'll gain all that weight you're losing, you're welcome.
@lavenderfields13 - I'm sorry your open house plans keep getting ruined! It will all happen when it's supposed to happen! And we've talked about names a lot, but are not even close to deciding on one. We don't plan on telling anyone until after baby is born though.
@cocobellaf - Yay for new floors! And now I want some of that chicken salad....
@500days - How much snow did you get??? We only got maaaaybe an inch here, and it didn't really stick to the streets.
@TwoDimes - Woot!!! So happy you guys got to go celebrate that promotion! And I bet passing on some of your good fortune just made it even better
@cu97tiger - You are kicking ASS. I am so impressed by you. Keep it up and do NOT let where others are at affect how proud you are of your own accomplishments.
Hey guys!! I had one of the best weekends I've ever had
Friday afternoon, DH and I went to the doctor's office for Bloob's anatomy scan. I was so happy and relieved that baby is growing and developing normally, and measured at a healthy 12.5oz! Also - Bloob is a BOY! I've felt he was a boy from the beginning, and I was so happy to be right. DH is over the moon excited too. That evening, he said to me "You know, I'm sure I would have been just as excited if it was a girl, but I'm surprised at how...proud...I feel." He also said that he felt resigned to a life surrounded by girls (he has 3 sisters, and I have two sisters and two stepsisters, plus we have a girl dog) - and he's so happy that now *I* will be the one outnumbered.
Saturday I did a lot of cleaning, and met up with someone to sell them my paper cutter I listed for sale on FB, and then I did all my food shopping for the week.
Sunday, my mom and stepdad came over and immediately cut into the gender reveal cake I made, and then the men got to work painting my bedroom, and my mom and I went to the mall and bought about 25 baby outfits - not even exaggerating. I also bought new curtains and some throw pillows for my bed. I cannot WAIT to AW my "new" bedroom as soon as I'm done decorating it. I looooooooooooooove how it's looking.
I'm hoping this will be a lovely relaxed week, since my boss is on vacation, it's only a 4 day week for me, and on Friday DH, puppo, and I are driving up to Rochester to spend the weekend meeting our 4 month old nephew and hanging out with one of DH's best friends.
