I for sure did not want this weekend to end- I'm pretty sure I shed a tear or two having to leave my friends and all go in different directions again. Hillary's wedding weekend was just what we needed! To say I enjoyed the girl time is an understatement. (and let me just say, being sober was not terribly awful! hahaha) We kicked off Friday night with her her rehearsal dinner at an awesome brewery in Norfolk and then Saturday we were pretty much going ALL day. I sent the hubs off with my best friend Radford's hubby and they had their own "guy day" while we got our hair done, make-up done and ate so much food it wasn't funny (and my blood sugar handled it very well surprisingly enough!)

Her wedding reception and ceremony were held at the Norfolk Yacht Club and everything was pink, gold and stunning! She was the most b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l bride and every detail was perfect. We danced the night away and baby Andi even got to be center spotlight as her Mama busted out a few moves for everyone's entertainment (including soulja boy ya' joke) Also, the hubs was pretty entertaining himself since he had started drinking at about noon that day... LOVED seeing everyone and I'm so happy that this month I get to see a few of my girls again as well with my upcoming shower and another trip planned. Oh and CHEERS to my birthday month- as in my bday tomorrow!!

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! Linking up with B Loved Boston today for Weekending

30 Week Bumpdate

How far along? 30 Weeks & 6 days

Size of Baby: 15.7 inches and 3 lbs

Total weight gain/loss: Down 4 whole pounds bc of the no carbs and sugars! I find that funny in the third trimester..... 

Symptoms: Everything is going so well with the sugar levels and new diet. I seriously cannot complain- it's annoying yes but when you're dealing with another life it makes everything so worth it. Fingers crossed that everything stays consistent!

Maternity clothes? Working with like the same 6 or 7 tops and living in leggings at this point! The belly just keeps going OUT! 

Stretch marks? Nope- thank goodness! Tight belly though- and getting bigger like every morning! Yikes!

Sleep: I have been sleeping great thank goodness! Still getting up to pee like 4 times but doing it in the dark so my brain doesn't wake up (I mean hey I've done it enough times to know where I'm aiming)
Rolling my body out of bed is sort of hilarious- I can barely get up!

Best moment this week: Getting another snow day but my darn ultrasound was canceled and I was really looking forward to getting her exact measurements and seeing her more in depth for the last time before she makes her arrival! (you know the South + Snow = END OF WORLD)

Miss Anything? Sweets of course!! :( Dang sugar levels..

Movement: Ya'll...I seriously cannot get enough! I now can recognize butt and feet and elbows! It is absolutely incredible to see the shapes she makes when moving around!

Food cravings: Fruit still, Outshine sugar free popcicles and yogurt

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope 

Have you started to show yet: ummm...hello?

Gender prediction: Girl! Miss Anderson Greer Otey (Andi)

Nursery:  Still at a stand still until after the shower but did find this adorable piece at Hobby Lobby yesterday for half off and fell in love!


Workouts: Treadmill after meals and walking walking walking - helps the blood sugar levels!

Labor Signs: eeek no! Braxton hicks? Yes I think!

Belly Button in or out? So weird... 

Wedding rings on or off? On but feel bigger- I think that happens in winter though

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! Loving this little girl so much I seriously cannot wait to meet her! (Well...getting nervous with how quickly it is going by #panicmode)

Looking forward to: Seeing all my girls for Hillary & Ryan's wedding this weekend!!!!!!!! We leave tomorrow for Norfolk and all the wedding festivities from rehearsal dinner to ceremony to brunch on Sunday!

Oh Twitter, How I Love Thee

 So let's just take a moment and chat about last night's episode of the Bachelor shall we? First off- not TOO many tears...that was a true first. Also, I'm really not sure how they made that last 2 full hours. The fantasy suite night is fun but I mean the whole point is for them to have some alone time without the cameras so what does that do for us viewers? Well, NOTHING.. we are forced to use our imaginations and when Becca comes out and says she's  a virgin but Chris tells Chris Harrison that he can see "just how passionate she is after last night" my imagination starts heading for the gutter people.... Anyway, this post is more of a place to brag today so let's just get right to it. So this happened last night:

I'm pretty sure I've tweeted to Chris Harrison at least once an episode for years from him running for next Bachelor and so on - I was thrilled! Ahhh we have a connection now (haha) I just love Chris Harrison. I'm pretty sure my next tweet to him will be about me stealing his job in the future... Oh and let's not forget when Chris Soules, the actual Bachelor, favorited my tweet last season when I decided to let him know that I NEEDED him to be the new Bachelor: (This season will forever hold a place in my heart! #Winning)

 So basically, in conclusion, yes...yes I will accept the rose this week!

Hey Ya'll & Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great (Oscar) weekend! The hubs was out of town on work all weekend so I actually spent a lot of time hanging out at my parent's house and relaxing. Friday though was like mail day at the house! My sweet friend Edie sent us the Graco Elite pack and play/sleeper/everything basically from our registry and I was floored! That thing is intense and not to mention expensive so she definitely did not have to do that! Needless to say I was so excited to get my first baby shower item and it made me miss her so much (she is in Florida!) Next, a huge box arrived from Heather and the twin girls care package style. I'm mad I haven't taken a picture but it included books, a heart doppler to her Andi's heart, bottles, nursing storage containers, the cutest clothes and hats ever, a sweet pink crib blanket....I mean you name it! Clearly it was a fabulous start to the weekend!
 ALSO- speaking of mail. I received THE best piece of snail mail from my best friend Michael. (long story short: Michael and I grew up together and have been best friends through and through. He recently decided to join the Army/National Guard and just embarked on his journey through training. I begged him to do the pen pal thing and I got my first letter! Also, we have a weird inside joke obsession with Nicholas Cage- just to prepare you for what's coming) Anyway, it was a dream come true because my letter was from Forest Gump and said dear Jen-nay instead of Jessi at first (hahaha esisly amused right here) I'm so happy he is doing well and can't wait to get more letters in the future! In the mean time, he is getting a fun Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition with a little Nick Cage twist (muahaha <-- evil laugh) I'll share it once it's done! #ProjectTime #GlueStick

Also, did ya'll catch the Oscars? I love NPH and though he did a great job hosting (although he was no Ellen) If you don't follow NPH and his hubby on IG you should- his family is insanely cute. I was HORRIBLE this year at my movie watching and haven't seen any of the nominated films except American Sniper so I clearly have some catching up to do. I do however have some fashion faves from last night. What did ya'll think overall? I picked Gweneth for the win, Rosamund Pike for her stunnind red ensemble, Jennifer Lopez for those boobs and Emma Stone for hair and make-up!

Linking up today With Biana over at B Loved Boston
