Blowing Up Like a Balloon

Today I had a Dr appt. I have sorta dreaded this day for about a week because I have been SOOOOOOOOOOOOO hungry lately, I knew I would weigh a bunch. I have been trying to think about and wash and iron my lightest weight outfit. Monday I found the perfect light weight garb. It was a thin cotton shirt and some thin knit pants. I put on the thinnest socks I had and did not wear much jewelry. My usual nurse did not weigh me, but one that I have had before did the duty. When I stepped on the scale, she just kept moving the bar to the right. Then she said, " Woooooooo girl, your at 1_ _!" She could have just kept that comment to herself. I could see the number. I was stunned that she said that. This made me feel REAL good about myself-HA HA! Afterward I went to the store and tried to buy some healthy food, but her comment didn't keep me from the Cadbury eggs or a box of Jr. Mints.
I had to have another ultrasound because last month the lady forgot to measure something. All was well and it is still a girl--you never know. We are still going with the name Sarah Kate and Emily is proudly calling her Sarah Cake. Maybe because Emily has seen me eating my share of cake lately.

I laughed at this post for many reasons.
1. B/c you've been planning your outfit for a week
2. B/c the nurse blabbed your weight to the whole world.
3. B/c "tried to eat something healthy" but still got candy
4. I just love that she calls her Sarah Cake. I might start calling her that too! It's fitting with the cupcake picture in the nursury!

You are such a funny girl!!!!! I am in 7th period laughing out loud !!!! I agree with hillary about all 4. Girl...don't worry, your what you want and be sure you get the other nurse next time hahahaha

I am mostly laughing at Hillary's comments.
If any nurse comments on my weight - they better watch out. I might start yelling in the hall "ya'll are the ones who put me on meds that make me want to eat an elephant every day"!!! :-)
Eat your junior mints - you look great!

Enjoy it and eat! Pregnancy is the only time you can really get away with it. All the pictures I've seen of you, you look great! That is so cute what Emily is calling the baby. Evan called Ella Grace "Elmo Grapes" for a while! Too funny!

Maybe no one has told you this but seems like you always get bigger faster with the second baby! I don't know if your skin is already stretched out or what but always seem to"show" earlier.

Kelly weighed 8.2 oz when she was born and her brother weighed almost 9 lbs and he was two weeks early(because of planned C-section).

Enjoy eating good food because you are feeding that precious new little girl!

I hope Emily calls her Sarah Cake for a while! That is too cute!!!

So funny! I always planned my weigh-in outfits, too. I'd try to wear slip-on shoes so that I could easily exclude those. I never ever wore my tall boots and I never ate breakfast on weigh-in day. :)

P.S. I LOVE Jr. Mints. I'd buy a box every day in the OBU bookstore and eat them between class or at the library, etc. It's no wonder I gained weight in college. Luckily, I was addicted to Subway for 2 meals a day or I might have graduated weighing 350 lbs.

Oh Laurie - I actually had no idea how much weight I had gained w/ my pregnancy - before I even got on the scale I made it clear that I didn't want to know! It wasn't until about 2 days before delivery that someone said it outloud in my room...and neither the first nor the 2nd number was a 1.

Oh well, easy on...easy off - right? It's all going to a good cause! LOL.

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chu

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
