"seriously? get that stinking camera out of my face"
The Christmas decor is up in our little bungalow.
(photos taken by the talented Heather....who just so happens to be my sister)
(it was peanut butter heaven.....yes, peanut butter heaven)
Mi Madre made the cupcakes, but Heather had these awesome cookies and sweet little cake made....on top of the cake was a question mark (since we don't know what we are having), a bottle and a little onezie on a hanger. How flipping cute!
My favorite gift wrapping job of the day....well done Erin you crafty minx!
And last....me and my sister. She thought of every little detail and made the day so incredible special. I can't imagine my life without her and am so lucky to have such an inspiring lady to look up to.
I mean obviously not strangers and definitely not when I am not pregnant....that would be just plain awkward. Well let's be honest, it's a little awkward even when I am pregnant. "Excuse me. Would you mind rubbing my belly for a minute?" How does one go about requesting a belly rub?...without sounding slightly like a puppy.
Stone snapped this 'lovely photo' last night after a quick trip to McDonalds for a vanilla cone.
See the cone in my hand? He made me laugh (as you can see) by asking what I was doing with the cone. "You're just gonna have it in the picture? Are you gonna take a bite? What exactly are you doing?" SNAP! he takes the photo, looks at the photo then says (with a disturbed look on his face) "oh no!...let's take another"
Well this sent my giggle fit into over drive (as you can see above) and Stone was sweet enough to snap a picture right after I screamed "I'm gonna pee my new pants!"
Oh Stone...you are such a gentleman.
And this is my bump at the end of 18 weeks
All in all, it feels good to be back in pants.
(tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumbers, squash, bell peppers, cantaloupe and a blueberry bush)
OK. Stone did it, but that's neither here nor there.
I can only do so many things at once and Monday afternoon I was very busy reading Harry Potter (again) and growing a baby in my belly. How was I possible expected to till the land?
PS: I wonder how many more times I can use "I can't, I'm growing a baby" before Stone snaps...
(almost 15 weeks)
ALSO....a bit of onion...dried or fresh it doesn't matter (sorry I forgot this on the original post)
my jeans still fit....and by 'fit' I mean I can wear them, not buttoned, and be uncomfortable all day
my already thick tresses have become an almost uncontrollable mass with it's own plan for world domination
Stone calls the wee babe in my belly 'Nugget'...pronounced 'new-get' with a slight English accent
And that's about it!....Honestly, I have felt really great. I feel lazy and a little bit cranky sometimes (more on that later) other than that.....top notch!
Thank you for your sweet comments!

he/she is destined to be awesome.
*This guy makes my day.
We had a good old fashioned date night on Saturday.
dinner at La Piedad
movie browsing at Blockbuster
(we rented Extract and Four Christmases)
a stop at the store for a six pack of our favorite beers
and last (but most certainly not least) a quick trip to Steak-N-Shake for a tasty strawberry treat
I'm kind of in love with him.....just a little bit.
....and these are the next best thing to Fancy Cakes.
Thank you dear sister, for buying me such a sweet surprise!
(literally...I can feel the cavities forming while I'm eating them)
