Randomness and what we've been up to. . .

Oh whine whine- the blog posting is back! What do you expect from a girl that's been gone for a week?? :)

We spent Thanksgiving at the Ackerman's house and had such a great relaxing time. Ate lots, went bowling, put up the massive Christmas tree, decorated, went to the mall, walked around St. Joe, made bread and truffles, it was great. Then I went to Chicago for RSNA for three days. I was a little worried about being on my feet for three days straight and 7 months pregnant, but thankfully I felt really good. My feet suck anyways, so they didn't hurt any more than usual. It's nice because we stay at the Hyatt Regency in the McCormick Place- so we simply had to walk across the grand concourse to the show- so much better than catching a cab every morning. The show went well and hopefully I'll close some deals from it. For a few days, it's kind of fun to dress up, meet clients, have nice dinners, pretend like I'm a business woman :)

I came home to a super sick hubby so between forcing tea and oranges down his throat and unpacking from the show- it's been a crazy week. I umm, still haven't completely unpacked, but don't tell anyone. I finally went grocery shopping at 9:30 last night, so now we have food! Besides being sick, poor Jon is SWAMPED at work (his hard drive crashed a few weeks back and he lost most of his work he did during the last five years at Trinity). Don't ask if he backed up his computer, just. . . dont' because I dont' quite understand what happened there. But he did do a video promo for Trinity's Christmas Journey which is airing these next two weeks on TV which is pretty sweet. He's doing a good job keeping his spirits up despite losing all that work and being sick. He worked til almost 9 last night and went in at 6:00 this morning, crazy man.

Well, this Friday were watching my favorite little girl of all time while John and Kym get a little romantic night away before their 2nd one is born. Were pumped to baby-sit her- and FINALLY get our Christmas decorations up this weekend.

On the preggo front- all is well. I have my 28th week check up tomorrow and I think I passed my gestational diabetes test with flying colors. Unfortunately, I pulled a rib (in my back) out of place and it KILLS, but other than that I hardly feel pregnant. I'm sure that will change in the next few weeks. We still don't have the hallway painted, so we haven't really started putting the nursery together. . . one of these days we'll get to it. . . hopefully. . .

Ok, that's a wrap! Hope all your ribs stay in place and you're staying healthy!

Oh my goodness, I feel so much better now that you've updated;) Pulled a rib, how does that happen. Were you trying to carry Jon from the couch to the bed while he was sick? I'm still working on getting Westin to say Uncle Jon and Aunt Chaeli, maybe by Christmas, you'll be able to understand him. Thanks for the update!

Hey girl- I think I did it when we were helping John and Kym move. I was careful not to pick up anything too heavy- but I'm sure unpacking and lifting and stuff probably did it. I'm hoping I can get it to see a chiropractor soon.
Happy Birthday a few days early!!!! What are your plans??

Oh man, I remember when our computer crashed a few years ago and we lost all of Evan's baby pictures. :( That was horrible! I cant believe you're 28 weeks already! YAY! I cant wait to see the little guy! How are you sleeping at night? You need to post some more preggo pics!
