Bumpdate and Bloggy Award!


Please excuse the way I look in this picture. It’s quite unfortunate. I feel very bloated versus feeling pregnant.

How far along? 10 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: No weight gain so far.

Maternity clothes? Not yet. I did by a Belly Band to make wearing jeans more comfortable.

Sleep: Sleep is awesome and I can’t get enough of it!

Food cravings: I haven’t really had any specific cravings other than sushi.

Gender: No clue. But I’m thinking girl while the Hubs and his family all think boy.

What I miss: Wine.

What I am looking forward to: Hearing the heartbeat at the next appointment.

Weekly Wisdom: If you happen to think, “Did I just pee on myself? No way did I just pee!” – It’s probably true. Also if you hate pregnancy please pick up the book Pregnancy Sucks by Joanne Kimes – thanks for the suggestion Amber

Milestones: I’m 1/4 of the way through my pregnancy! Woo Hoo!


Jordan at The Deflon Family gave me a bloggy award!








1- Thank and link back to the person that sent this to you- Thanks Jordan!! I am loving your blog and I love new bloggy friends!

2- Share 7 things about yourself.

- We are die hard Alabama fans!! Roll Tide!! – (I hope I don’t lose any of my Tennessee or Auburn bloggy friends!)


- We have 2 cats as well as Dayne and Maggie – the cats rarely get face time on the blog because they hate being photographed!


- I work as a loan officer at a small loan company – not really exciting!


- I am the biggest chicken and I rarely face any of my fears – what can I say, I’m a weenie!


- I’m addicted to reality tv – the Bachelor, Bachelorette, Big Brother – love them all!


- I am completely neurotic about some things but I am a terrible housekeeper! I never clean unless John Paul will help me!


- I am completely terrified that this baby will be a boy and I won’t have a clue what to do with him!

I’m supposed to pass the award on to 15 other bloggers but because I am running out of energy I will list a few blogs that I think are fab.

No problem girl...I was looking to see if you had any bump pics but you didn't, I hope you didn't mind me using your other one.

Anywho, I've been following your blog for awhile but have been a craptastic commenter...I will def. step up my game because I don't know how I have been missing all your witty wisdom and hilarious posts.

Congrats again on the baby! :)

Jordan said...

Thanks for the shout out! And for the record- I def think you look more "cute early pregnancy" than "bloated."
