A very-pregnant-birthday.

Obviously it's been quite a busy birthday since I've had no time to post all day. I know, I know-it's not like me at all to post this late, but it is what it is.

So, what have I been up to today? Lots. Perhaps, too much for this very pregnant girl.

-an early breakfast date with my sister

-a trip to target where I purchased a breast-feeding momma's tankini for the beach (I know, right. It should help me 'not hang out' and it's rouched on the side, which may give the 'more thin' illusion, ha. One can hope.)

-a 3 hour shopping trip to the Premier Outlets (with sisters and nieces) where I purchased only a few baby clothes via gift certificate at Baby Gap, and stopped to pee every 2.5 minutes. (Annoying. Terribly, annoying. That's for tomorrow's post.)

-a pizza lunch

-a stop at Panera for a strawberry smoothie fix

-a spur-of-the-moment Ross shopping trip where 29303829 cute dresses passed through my fingertips because I couldn't try them on (duh), and couldn't purchase because I have NO clue what I will look like sans baby-bump. (Again, a post for tomorrow.)

-Finally, ultimate R.E.L.A.X.A.T.I.O.N. Me and my sissy got our European Spa Pedicures. It was heaven on earth. The sad part? From all that walking earlier, I had chubby, swollen feet. Not attractive whatsoever.

-A quick returns-only trip to babys-r-us.

-Get home only to discover my sweet hubby had light pink roses and a single* balloon waiting there for me (he had to work today).

-Got another flower delivery from one of my wonderful friends, Chrissy, her husband and her daughter. They are GORGEOUS.

-Got two other packages conveniently in the mail today that are for my little girl. They both made my day because SO much thought and love went into them.

-Heard the door open, and realized Declan came home from work an hour early. Realized something must be up. Hmmm.

-Declan takes me to the Melting Pot for dinner (have never been there and have always wanted to go!). I was greeted with lots of "Happy Birthday's!" and even got a really sweet card from them and a $10 off for the next time 'gift'.

-Quick return-trip to Pottery Barn Kids (it was right next door...couldn't pass up the chance.)

-Ate a delicious dessert at Rita's Waterice.

-Pass out (or blog) from exhaustion and realization that I'm in my 36th week of pregnancy and I just don't have the same amount of energy as I used to.




[More on this tomorrow...I know, you can't.wait.]

Happy birthday to me.

*Since my 18th birthday, Declan has given me the amount of balloons to match my age--every.year. It was cute, and sweet...and all that--until this year. When I decided that I didn't want that anymore. I wanted him to save the money and not waste it on 25 friggin balloons. So, although I was slightly afraid I hurt his feelings, he did indeed abide by my wishes. I got one single balloon and not 25. However, in Illustrator he drew a picture of 25 balloons (what a cute graphic-design-nerd!) and stuck it in my birthday card instead. Love him.

PS: Did you see my maternity photos?! If not--go here to check them out.
