Seeing Double

Me and Bean 37 weeks along and 37 pounds heavier! To tell you the truth, I wasn't planning on doing weekly belly updates, but it's so rare I dress up and put on makeup, that I had to document it. Plus, my husband was pulling a double at UPS, so my cuteness effort would be wasted if not for my camera




This next photo has been included for two reasons. First, to give everyone a lesson in the importance of camera angles and second, to prove that while I might have more than the average number of photos of myself, I'm not too vain to post a scary one. Watch out everyone, the Christmas giant is coming to eat your cookies and maybe you too, if you aren't fast enough!!!


This is my first real live Christmas tree. I was worried about how well it would turn out. Being from the land of Hallmark (aka Kansas City, MO) I'm sort of an ornament snob. I couldn't stomach the thought of a tree decorated in cheap glass balls, but I don't have any of my cute ornaments in Utah and I really wanted to have a tree if The Bean should make an early arrival. I thought bows might be cute and I found some cheap stocking and mitten ornaments at Big Lots. I pretty much think it's the cutest, fattest, happiest tree ever.


I don't even mind that I accidentally bought lights with a white cord and it doesn't blend in with the tree. Okay, I still do mind a little, but I'm getting over it.

P.S. My work Christmas party was at Market Street Grill in Salt Lake City. It's a pretty nice place. The first person I see when I walk in is my OBGYN. (Awkward seeing someone who checks your cervix outside of a medical setting.) The massage therapist from my work said it was a sign. It would make a great story, but thankfully I made it through dinner without going in to labor. Can you imagine?

You look like a beautiful 1970s Mom...kind of like my Mom did when she was pregnant with me. Groovy dress.

Beautiful tree... well done. I know what you mean about the white cord and the land of Hallmark...

I don't put up half my ornaments with the little ones around...

So Big Lot's is my friend also..

Can't wait to be there...

You look very good! But, I definitely see your point about the angles. I always love when someone manages to capture a photo of me that makes me look as big as a barn. I'm not a vain person, but, some photos should be destroyed. :)

I'm glad you have a tree up. It looks great! The Bean will love it if he arrives early enough to see it. Just remind the little guy that he can't come before the camera gets there!

I hope you are hanging in there -- the last 4 weeks can be so hard! We are anxiously awaiting your big news! Also, I hope you had a happy birthday!

OK.... I am bored again...

I was able to last longer on each post when I had music...

But now I need more frequent updates..
