no witty titles come to mind

So, I’m an idiot. I had been sitting here at work all day – bored, as usual – and the lower part of my back kept itching. I could not figure out what it was. Anyways, so when I made my 3rd trip to the bathroom this morning, I finally realized I didn’t remove the sales tag off of the pants I bought over the weekend. Smart, huh?

Doing pretty good with sticking to my “pregnancy points” so far. A few days last week I went over, but I figure flex took care of that. I’m just playing with a few pounds here and there, and will talk to my doctor more about my weight for the pregnancy at my appointment on November 4. I still haven’t told everyone at work that I’m pregnant yet. The people I talk to regularly know, but most people do not. Including my boss. For the record, my face is still a bumpy mess and my heartburn is out of control.

Over the weekend, Daniel and I went to visit Amanda and Jay – the boys watched football while we went shopping, and then came back and ate chili and her “not mountain dew” cake aka as dreamsicle cake. She fit into awesome smaller sizes, so it was a fun shopping trip. We also went into a Babiesrus, and I thought I was going to have a nervous breakdown. I didn’t know what half of the stuff was for, and I guess I just didn’t realize how much stuff we were really going to need.  It was so overwhelming – feeling that unprepared. I told Mandi about it yesterday, and she sent me a “necessities” list, so I feel like I have a better idea of what kind of stuff we need to be looking for now.

I’m super excited for Biggest Loser tonight. I think it’s the only show Daniel and I watch consistently on the day it airs. I’m wondering if Tracey will do any crazy nonsense this time…

I leave for Memphis on October 18 for 2 weeks of training for work. I think it’ll be a long two weeks – and possibly boring. But I’ve never been to Memphis, so I’m excited about seeing it. And I’m looking forward to not having anything to do every evening, so I can nap a lot, get caught up on some reading (Amanda let me borrow The Host!), watch some tv, and just relax. A few girls I work with here in MD are going the same time as me, so I figure we’ll check out something fun over the weekend there.

So, yeah…that’s it.


  1. Can't wait to use my CityCash in November! I'm glad you and Daniel like the Dreamsicle cake - it's one of my faves!

  2. I know your concerned about weight issues and being pregnant but if you were attending WW meetings they would kick your ass out! lol Be careful and make sure you discuss this with your Dr.!! :) I think about what I would do when and if I ever decide to have kids...and I think it would be more about making healthy choices. :)

  3. haha...at least you didn't have your undies inside out or your shirt on backwards. i'm the queen of that!

    love you and baby hughes!

  4. I don't want anyone to think I'm doing WW to lose weight - I'm not! I'm just trying to make sure I eat a healthy amt of calories (points) for me and the baby...if I don't track what I eat, I will surely overindulge. I know this ol' girl too well!

  5. An insightfull post. Will definitely help.

  6. Girl, I have to ask, what kind of job makes you travel so much? Does it ever piss you off?

    It is fun to read about your pregnancy as I will probably start trying in the spring.

    I feel the same way about BabiesRUs and then kids start screaming and I want to run away. Maybe that is a bad sign.
