A smorgasboard of sorts...

I thought I would be really ambitious and try to cram everything into this one wee little post. (or not so little - you get the idea) So it's a Friday Follow/Five Question Friday/Preggo update all in one. Also in case you missed it or need some time to weed out some good ones you can still link up with Texting Thursday. I just started it so if you don't have any ideas for this week just keep me in mind for next week.

First off to those visiting from Friday Follow or ICLW - Hello! Welcome! So glad you stopped by! I'm Di - 27, sarcastic, able to laugh at myself and I try to serve up my life's events with a side of humor. I call it like it is though and don't mince words if something bothers me. I sure do hope you decide to poke around the old blog and if you like what you see you become a follower. Also being the youngest in my family I constantly need attention so leave me a comment or two for a sense of validation!

On to the Pregnancy update. First off here's an - Oh No He Didn't! moment from this week. It almost led to Joey losing his life in a gruesome and graphic way. My husband actually had the balls to say to me - "Hey! You're getting a little pudgy there!"

I considered 800 different ways to maim him and then responded with - "Umm. No honey - I would be looking a little PREGNANT since you know YOU knocked me up and all."

Now tell me at 12 weeks (WOO HOO! 6 Days to my second trimester!!!) which one of us is looking pudgy?




Uh huh, that's what I thought!

Next Wednesday I will be making the big reveal at work. We have a big meeting that everyone will be in and I have to speak as part of the presentation so I figure right before my part I will rip open my smock (stripper style) and show off my T-shirt that shares the news. Yea, I'm subtle like that!

Now on to 5QF -

My Little Life

Mama M over at My Little Life hosts 5QF so go visit her and join in the fun!

1. What were your school colors?
Red and White for the high school I spent most of my time at. Our mascot was also the Fighting Sandcrab - what that doesn't strike fear in your hearts? I am so disappointed! My second high school's colors were Blue and White (I think) and it shared a mascot (The Knight) with my college whose colors were black and gold so technically our mascot was the Golden Knight.

2. What's the best compliment you ever received?
Oh shoot - I can't remember. The ones I appreciate the most are when dh thanks me for everything i do and the ways I support him. That is the most meaningful.

3. Do you buy cheap or expensive toilet paper?
Depends on the status of my checking account. I never buy the super cheap stuff though since there is nothing grosser than the tp falling apart on you while you are using it.

4. Have you ever had a surprise party thrown for you? Or have you had one for someone else?
I've never had one thrown for me but we recently threw one for my dad. I think we had one for my sister when she was a teenager too. Damn pregnancy brain. Can't remember. (Jellybean! Quit stealing my brain cells and make your own!)

5. What is one material possession that you "can't live without"?
My phone. I love texting with my sister, my morning phone call with my dad then my mom and just being able to connect when I need it. The random love you text from the hubby is nice too. Phones = love when you need a quick dose!

Passing through by way of 5QF.

The Fighting Sandcrab? That's funny! Why do older generations like to embarrass their children? there is a school near me and their mascot if a "Beet Digger." Oh yeah!! lol Thanks for sharing and congratulations on your baby!

Jenn said...

Angel said...

I would have killed him! lol Good luck with the Reveal!

Megan said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I wish I came over for Texting Thursday. My friends and I had a chain going about peeing in a cup at the doctors! It was pretty funny!

Susan said...

I also went to 2 HS's...I only listed the one I went to for my junior and senior year...my freshman and sophomore year I was green and white and our mascot was a dragon. My graduating HS's mascot was the eagle.

Love you comparison picks. :)
Best wishes for a healthy, happy, and easy pregnancy and delivery!

Found you via your comment on my blog for ICWL.

Congrats on your preganacy! Love, love, love the pics of you and your hubby.

My Heart said...

Love the pregnacy photos! Those are fantastic!

I am noticing a theme in some of these answers; some of us have never had surprise parties thrown for us. We must band together and begin an uprising, demand our surprises... what? Won't work? Oh... {grin}

Creative Flair said...

Kelly Polizzi said...
