In case anyone was wondering, this is what would have happened if Fievel had gone South rather than West.
Between this guy and a home where the original owner had just died in it I would say our hunt this weekend was less than successful.
And now that you’re nice and hungry, have you ever been to Which Wich?
It’s essentially Subway, if Subway didn’t suck.
They have all different kinds of bags [turkey, chicken, italian, veggie, etc] and from there you customize what you want on it, give it to them, and they make it for you.
We discovered it two weeks ago while house hunting because we wanted to try a local spot since we plan on living in the area and we’ve been two weekends in a row now.
It may make another appearance in our belly’s for this Saturday’s hunt, you never know.
[It probably will].
I hope I’ve convinced you to find one.
Now on to the Bump-Date!
**Note: I’m actually 28 weeks today. All posts will be a week behind**
[Please don’t mind my crazy eyes in the photo]
This weekend we had the pleasure of attending our friend’s Ken and Jill’s wedding.
It was a very romantic wedding and they even made a short film about their love story which was incredible and made me cry.
Plus they had a photo booth which was so much fun!
I’m so happy we got to celebrate with them!
-I’VE GOT THE BUG-
The shopping bug that is.
Whoever says boys clothes are not as fun to buy is so wrong.
I walked into a Carter’s this weekend just to look since it was right next door to Which Wich and I walked out with all of these clothes.
Derek reminded me that I should probably cool it until after our baby shower, otherwise people won’t have anything else left to get us!
But here are some things I am in love with right now.
Wish List & Their Links:
1. Giraffe Cloud B Sound Machine Soother: I’m very musical so I love the idea of getting Declan something to put him to sleep that involves music.
2. Football Hat: I die every time I see this. It must be mine. It just must.
3. Diaper Bag: I really love the idea of having a diaper bag that doesn’t scream, “Yes I am a mom and now I have no fashion sense because of such”. Lol
4. Crib Mobile: It matches his room oh so perfectly.
5. Glider Pillow: Derek’s mom always sang this song to him when he was little. I love the idea of keeping the tradition going and I love this throw pillow.
6. Alligator Throw Blanket: This is the bedding I want for little man. Hot damn I hope it’s still around in the next few months. I may end up just buying this now haha.
-I SEE YOU, BABY-
Speaking of things I love, Derek’s dad Dennis just bought us our baby monitor and I could not be more excited!
It’s crazy to think that in just a few short months we will be using it.
We also got to go to dinner with Dennis and catch up which was really nice and overdue.
-STRIPPER NAMES AND MOOD SWINGS-
Sunday Derek and I were driving to Sam’s Club to get dog food and a few other things.
I was cranky because I was hungry and sleepy and was complaining about something.
One way or another the conversation shifted to what Derek’s stripper name would be.
[because naturally a conversation would go from food to stripper names in 2 seconds]
Derek’s family calls him Der Der [pronounced dur, dur] so I proudly proclaimed:
“Your name would be Der-Der-icious!”
I then proceeded to lose my shit.
I could not stop laughing and kept saying,
“It’s so funny! I’m so funny!”
I ended up laughing so hard that I was crying and couldn’t see the road through my tears.
This lasted for a good 3 minutes before I was finally able to compose myself.
I guess that’s what they mean when they talk about going from one extreme emotion to another during pregnancy.
For the record, I still think Der-Der-icious is some of my best work.
-MATCH MAKER, MATCH MAKER, MAKE ME A MATCH-
Derek and I often end up matching our outfits on accident so this is nothing new for us.
What’s funny/awkward however is that on this particular day, we had three different people throughout the day comment on it.
“How cute you’re matching!”
“Yeah we always end up doing that on accident but when we need to match we never do.”
“I’m so jealous, that’s so sweet!”
Then there was a guy who said something about us still celebrating St. Patrick’s Day together and another girl who thought it was “adorable” that we match.
My new body hates me.
Back pains started this week, my sciatica feels like it has gotten worse, and we’ve just added leg cramps to the equation.
I’ve actually had really bad calf cramps since I was a kid.
It feels like my muscles are grinding together and the pain is excruciating.
Once [long before I was pregnant] Derek actually picked me up and took me to the urgent care because he was so concerned about them.
The doctors have never been able to find out why exactly I get them so bad and so often.
So when I read that you can get leg cramps in pregnancy I knew I was screwed.
Sure enough, these past couple weeks they have come on full force.
Just this week I had at least two.
I wake up screaming and Derek instinctively goes straight to my leg to massage it out and help me stand up because it happens that often.
He manages to forget the whole thing by the morning but I am usually left with a horribly sore calf muscle which in turn keeps me out of the gym that day.
If anyone knows of any remedies for this I am willing to try just about anything!
This is gross to me, but according to Derek:
“Everyone knows that is what happens babe.”
But I was just laying in bed minding my own business and all of a sudden I felt something wet on my chest, only to discover that it was in fact my boob…
No book can prepare you for when the symptoms start actually happening to you because it is awkward as shit.
I will leave it at that.
Apples and pesto, separately.
THINGS I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO:
Sunday Sunday Sunday!
Can’t wait to see my in-laws!
Hopefully Declan will give them some good kicks while they are here.
THINGS I MISS:
I used to guzzle it down nonstop.
Also my feet.
It’s getting harder and harder to see them while standing.
Who knows what kind of shenanigans they are up to without me watching them all the time.
Here’s to family!
