Just Waiting

My due date is June 10th and that is just around the corner. Let me just say that I am puffed! I took off my wedding ring yesterday because I thought I may lose circulation in my finger. My feet look awful! I have two pairs of shoes I can wear. I am having lots of Braxton Hicks and they serve as a reminder of the pain I am going to have any day now.
A couple of weeks ago I saw a Braums commercial for their Brownie Fudge Sundae. The commercial got me! I had Steve take me to Braums the next day. It is SOOOOO very very good. You must go and partake of this wonderful treat! When you see me or my picture you may question whether I have water weight or just too much Braums. I think it is both. But, the ice cream is good for my heart burn. (I like to tell myself that).

Oh I do love to get those at Braums. I haven't had one in a long time! Any time you put ice cream and brownies together it is about to be delicious!
Can't wait for Sarah Kate!

AAAH - Braums...Man, I love (and miss) Braums. So yummy!

Hang in there - she'll be here before you know it!

Ice cream is my weakness!!!! I love to find any reason to have some!

Just a few more days and your swollen ankles and heartburn will be a thing of the past and you will have that sweet little girl in your arms! We are praying for all to go well!

I discovered a sugar free cold stone creamery flavor yesterday! My sweet tooth was so thankful!

Not too much longer! Keep us posted!

Just one more week! I know you are sooo ready. It seems like you never forget how you feel at the end. I sympathize with the swelling and heartburn. I had that too. No much longer! I can't wait to see pictures of Sarah Kate!!!

It should be any day!!! I can't wait to see how beautiful and perfect Sarah Kate will be.
I also can't wait to see what Emily thinks???

So glad you visited my blog. I visit yours a lot too....thanks to your BFF Kelly.

Also about your cream has lots of calcium. That's my excuse:) I know you are ready to hatch. I hope it happens soon, easily, and all are healthy:)

Hi Laurie,

Angie Hughes was just asking me about art lessons the other day and I told her you were almost due but do you mind if I pass along your e-mail address for when you resume?

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 chuck

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.
