how much time left??

4 more weeks, lovelies! 30 more days until S4's due date.  We have pretty much decided on a first name and will decide on a middle name when we both sit down in the next couple of weeks.  I have enjoyed this pregnancy so far and my midwifery care has been more than I imagined it would be.  The only thing about this pregnancy that I have not enjoyed has been the weather. Oh wait- the hearburn, hip pain and the cavity that was just discovered can be added to the 'not enjoyed' list, but overall I am thankful to God for an uneventful pregnancy.

My dad's got jokes...

So lovelies, my dad went to Ghana (West Africa) on a Fulbright tour (yeah, he's smart like that).  So of course, he brought back some fabric and some presents for the kids.  After the family got their souvenirs, my dad came to me and said 'I have something for you- hold out your hand.' At this point I am scared because he doesn't normally say that.  I put my hand out and he drops this into it and after he told me what it was, we both busted out laughing:
Uh huh.  It's a small pendant of a fertility doll.  Now my dad is fully aware of the fact that I am pregnant and that I have three children already.  Yeah.  Jokes. ;)

Can I vent for a minute?

Ok lovelies, I freely admit that I have had a bit of an attitude problem lately.  It has been ridiculously hot here and I am 35 (??) weeks pregnant.  Do I need any other excuse?  Don't get me wrong, I really do enjoy being pregnant however I do not enjoy the heat.
So today, I was at a conference and this woman asked me if my pregnancy was an accident or planned.  Umm what??? So I looked at her and said "it doesn't really matter at this point, does it?" You'd be proud of me lovelies, other than this statement to this heffer, I held my tongue.  No comment on her weight or her jacked up weave.  I turned my back and attempted to drop the 'leave me alone' hint to her (she sat right next to me during this workshop).   She then proceeded to tell me that she has 'been there, done that' as far as pregnancy and that her husband wants a baby boy and she will probably end up having one for him.  Blah. blah, blah.  OMG!!!! I had to get up and leave her presence while she was in mid sentence about something I didn't want to hear about.  I didn't see her for the rest of the day. 
Needless to say, I was rubbed up like a magic lamp all day despite my repeated requests for people to not touch me. I don't care how cute you think I am pregnant, if I tell you not to touch my belly, have the decency to comply with my request. 
Rant over.

Cravings and other oddities....

Oh my goodness, I just scarfed down a cup of ramen noodles topped with feta cheese.  With the broth and pepper and lime for added flavor.  Do you think I will be suffering in the next hour? I would venture to say yes.  Eek.  Yum.  Eek! The other night I ate blueberries topped with condensed milk.  YUM.  Odd?  I don't know.  It tasted kind of like blueberry cheesecake.  It was so good I ate 2 bowl-fulls.

After eating all this stuff, I should probably get back to excercising, but I like being outside and it is still very hot out.  I know, I have DVDs but they are just not as fun, ya dig?

Lovelies, what crazy dishes did  you consume while you (or your significant other) while pregnant?  Did you have any unexpected cravings?

Handmade goodness!

Hello lovelies, I woke up this morning to wonderful rainy weather and a list of errande to run.  Unfortunately S2 is sick, so we decided to scrap the outing. What to do, what to dooooooo..... Well, I bought patterns on Etsy about 3 weeks ago and I have some fabric and this is what transpired about 2.5 hours later!
It's a pinafore from Heidi and Finn.

Isn't it delightful? S3 loves it! Onto a skirt for her big sister- a little something to help her feel better. ;)

Did you get my Dr. Evil laugh? I am actually giddy with excitement because Yo Gabba Gabba is coming to the PHX and I got tickets.  Just call me mom of the year.  Yes lovelies, the entire YGG crew will visiting in December at the Dodge theater downtown.  I haven't told the girls yet because being 7 months pregnant, I don't think that I could take the constant questioning about what day we're going (it's only August!)  As parents, hubby and I screen what our children watch and this is one show that we are happy to have playing on our television. 
So local lovelies, get your calendars marked for what you know will be a most rockin' family event! This is a nationwide tour, so definitely watch for the show in your area as well!!! I am personally hoping that The Roots will make a special appearance at the Phoenix show.  'Lovely Love My Family' is my absolute favorite YGG song!
