Double the pleasure, double the fun

Does anyone else wish there was two of themselves?

If there was two of me, one would be at home playing with the pups, taking them for walks, picking up my house, making dinner, doing laundry, going grocery shopping, etc. while I'm at work and then the gym.

There are not enough hours in the day...

16 week update

My what to expect app told me that during week 16 my uterus would not be the only thing that would swell my mucous membranes in my nose would also, causing congestion and possible nosebleeds. Wouldn't you know but I woke up last week with a stuffy and bloody nose.

I am going to borrow steal my friend April's pregnancy update format, thanks!

 Baby's size: Turnip
Sleep: Bed by 10:00pm, and I am getting up 3-4 times a night to pee.
Maternity Clothes:  My clothes are too small and maternity clothes are too big so I stick with dresses, boots and sometimes tights when I am feeling adventurous.
Food cravings: Nothing really
Food aversions: When I'm done, I'm done but I am eating anything
Symptoms:  I am itchy all over!
Doctor’s Appointment: I have Metabolic syndrome and have taken Metformin for years, my doctor took me off of it a month ago at my last office visit and I am taking a sugar test on Thursday so we can see how everything is going, wish me luck.
Gender: TBD April 2013
Movement:  None, when will this happen?
Belly Button: Nothing has changed yet but reading April's posts about this scares me, ha!
What I’m looking forward to: Showing, getting to the point where my belly says "baby" and not "fat"
What I miss: Sushi, beer, sleeping through the night

T. Swift

Country music makes my heart happy. It makes me want to roll my windows down, open my sunroof, take my shoes off, put my foot out the window and sing at the top of my lungs. One particular artist I enjoy is Taylor Swift.

Today on my way home from work, I heard You Belong With Me (see below) and all I could think was that Taylor channeled my sixteen year old self and wrote a song. I enjoy her music because its catchy but relatable.  When I say relatable I am generally referring to my high school self.

 Its funny how hard I wished for somethings in high school that now I am so thankful did not come true.

You Belong With Me lyricsSongwriters: Rose, Liz; Swift, Taylor Alison;You're on the phone with your girlfriend, she's upset
She's going off about something that you said
'Cause she doesn't get your humor like I do

I'm in the room, it's a typical Tuesday night
I'm listening to the kind of music she doesn't like
And she'll never know your story like I do

But she wears short skirts, I wear T-shirts
She's Cheer Captain and I'm on the bleachers
Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find
That what you're looking for has been here the whole time

If you could see that I'm the one who understands you
Been here all along, so why can't you see?
You, you belong with me, you belong with me

Walking the streets with you and your worn-out jeans
I can't help thinking this is how it ought to be
Laughing on a park bench, thinking to myself
Hey, isn't this easy?

And you've got a smile that could light up this whole town
I haven't seen it in a while since she brought you down
You say you're fine, I know you better than that
Hey, what ya doing with a girl like that?

She wears high heels, I wear sneakers

She's Cheer Captain and I'm on the bleachers
Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find
That what you're looking for has been here the whole time

If you could see that I'm the one who understands you
Been here all along, so why can't you see?
You belong with me

Standing by and waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know?
Baby, you belong with me, you belong with me

Oh, I remember you driving to my house in the middle of the night
I'm the one who makes you laugh when you know you're 'bout to cry
And I know your favorite songs and you tell me 'bout your dreams
Think I know where you belong, think I know it's with me

Can't you see that I'm the one who understands you?
Been here all along, so why can't you see?
You belong with me

Standing by and waiting at your back door
All this time, how could you not know?
Baby, you belong with me, you belong with me

You belong with me
Have you ever thought just maybe
You belong with me?
You belong with me

Thanks T. Swift for making me feel young again!

Halloween

Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday! I love to dress up and I plan my costumes months in advance. I do not subscribe to the thought that Halloween is the one day a year a girl can dress as a slut and get "away" with it, I go more for the laughs. We usually host an annual Halloween party but last weekend i was out of town and this weekend Mark is working, hopefully next year we can get back on track.

Another reason Halloween is my favorite holiday is because of all the kids dressed up, so needless to say I was pretty disappointed when we only had 20 or so kids and some were not even dressed up. I don't understands parents allowing their children to go trick or treating and not making them dress up, its Halloween people not giveaway candy day. also, all these kids in our neighborhood were driving from house to house, really, how lazy are you?

Enough complaining.

Thank you to my friends who sent me pictures of their adorable kids in their costumes. I was also excited yesterday to get to see Lucas on his first birthday! Check him out in his new car.



Mark and I went to trivia last night, I went as Meg from Family Guy and Mark and Walter from The Big Lebowski. We are looking forward to a Halloween party this weekend. I  have a different costume for the party and will post pictures later.
