The combination of being very pregnant, chasing a toddler, having a very busy husband, and not getting enough sleep, made for a basket case of emotions. I don't think it helped that it was also the one year anniversary of my little sister's wedding (congrats Jas, love you!), which was the most difficult week of my life....and I think my entire family probably felt the same way.
I don't know if it's scientifically proven that your body remembers and reacts to traumatic events on the yearly anniversaries, but it wouldn't surprise me if it were true.
Now that things have calmed down a little, I'm feeling much happier. Not too mention I was seriously pampered for my entire birthday weekend! It was really fun to shop for things I wanted instead of things I need. Mostly because I can't buy maternity clothes since I'm so close to delivery and I can't buy normal clothes because I'm still pregnant, and I can't buy running shoes until I start running again. So shopping was much more fun and very uncharacteristic of my normal "research for weeks and find the best deal possible" mindset. I did use a coupon for almost everything I got, so I didn't feel completely crazy!
Here are some highlights:
-seeing a best friend's brand new baby, first time mom!
-treating myself to a pedicure and some fancy new makeup for my birthday (okay, okay, quality makeup is SO worth the money)
-shopping with my boys and finding cute new jewelry and scoring a free shirt at Loft
-eating delicious french toast with buttermilk syrup, almost like Kneaders
-scoring two super soft and comfy skirts at a church thrift sale (practically free)
-seeing Bubs' face light up when he saw the plastic boat I got for him at the thrift sale
-shopping with my boys for a new cake pan and finding the perfect summer heels, then buying them spur of the moment!
-chatting with my sister and finding out she bought me a subscription to Runner's World!
-spending a night out with my man, eating at Tucanos and seeing "42"
-eating the most delicious pulled pork sandwiches and texas fudge cake with our family on Sunday night. (click here for the pork recipe, you won't be disappointed)
Seriously, it was one of the best birthday's I've had in a long time.
If I had instagram, this is what I'd post:

The cashier at DSW was pretty impressed I was so pregnant and wearing such high heels. Girl, have you seen my closest? I don't own a pair of heels less than 4 inches! Of course I will wear them no matter how pregnant I am and despite my chiropractor hubby reminding me every time how bad it is to wear heels (following up quickly with how hott he thinks it is and how he wouldn't want me to stop wearing them anyway, HA!)
Happy Monday, everyone! I hope it's a fabulous week!
