First off - yesterday I talked about the
and I have only heard back from one of my ladies so instead I am opening it up to EVERYONE! If I get too many responses I will gladly put your guest post up on another day since quite frankly with pregnancy brain there are days where my mind isn't capable of creating a coherent post. (Like today and that run-on sentence I just treated you to...) So let me know if you would do a guest post for me and I'll be your BFF forever and ever. Even longer if we wear the same size clothes! Honestly though - it should be a win win for all since your readers meet me and vice versa!
Secondly - I thought it was time for a little Q&A around here. You know -
Getting to know all about you.
Getting to like you,
Getting to hope you like me.
See, I spend all this time on here spewing about myself, my family, my obtuse pets but I rarely give all of you a chance to ask what you'd really like to know. Ask anything you want. It can be about something I’ve blogged about before that you wanted more info or details from. It can be about something I’ve never mentioned and you’re curious about - you know like what brand of toothpaste I use or how in the world do I see over the steering wheel. It can be about Jellybean, Blue or Cadillac. It can be about my marriage. I would say you can ask Joey questions but he has a computer aversion - unless it involves stupid videos on youtube or porn. I'll try to answer as many questions as I can until pregnancy brain takes over or Jellybean starts kicking again and makes it impossible for me to type. (Like last night!)
You can post questions to the comments section of this post or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Answers will be posted on Thursday, since that's usually my wtf am I going to talk about day!
Now for the Friday Preggo update. First off a disclaimer on my picture for 19 weeks. I do indeed look half asleep - AFTER a shower. I was up at 5 am with Joey and took the picture at 5:45 - not my best time. But I do it for all of you. (and my cousin who lives in London and gets all her updates via Facebook. But mostly all of you!)
We had a doctor's appointment on Wednesday and so far so good on everything. I've gained 10 lbs so far. EEK! Hopefully it will all come off as quickly as it went on! Jellybean hid from the doppler for a bit but we finally found his heartbeat which is still holding steady in the 150s. He has started to get extremely active - especially when I come home from work and attempt to relax on the couch for a bit. I'm not sure but I think he was having a party in there last night and may have invited a few friends over too since I was getting kicked all over. I'm still not sleeping too great but I'm getting used to it and Joey has been doing his best to pick up the slack while ignoring my pregnancy hormones that tend to pop out unexpectedly. (OOPS!) Bless you honey for putting up with me sometimes! Can you believe we will be halfway there next week?
Finally - my favorite part of Friday blogging. Five Question Friday. Be sure to show Mama M some love this week since she's feeling down and needs uplifting.
1. Do you feel guilty spending money on yourself?
I don't feel guilty but I do feel a need to justify it and I often have a hard time doing that. I should be able to just go ahead and buy something because I need it but instead I agonize over my priorities instead. I imagine I'll get even worse at it once the baby comes!
2. How well do you know your neighbors?
This has actually been one of our favorite parts of moving into this neighborhood. We have gotten to know most of the community fairly well. We often run into people while walking the dogs or doing yard work and everyone is very friendly. It really is great!
3. What age are you looking forward to being?
28 - My first year of being a Mommy. I've enjoyed every year so far and I think life does just keep getting better!
4. Do you get excited when the mail comes? Why?
I do if I'm expecting samples or a package of some sort. Otherwise - not too much.
5. What is your earliest childhood memory?
Honestly - I'm not too sure. I don't have anything that stands out to me. Also I couldn't tell you if they are really my memories or stories that have been told ad nauseum that have "become" my memories. You know what I mean?
