Tricked ya!

Now I am pregnant (31 weeks). . .


Now I'm not! I am an optical illusionist! (Okay, well maybe you can still tell, but I might have been able to trick someone!)

Our hail and farewell for Seth's company was Wed. night and after going through several tops that just didn't appease me, I threw this sweater on that my mom gave me and added a belt (because it very obviously was not going to button!) When I got to the hail and farewell everyone had a cow. They were like, "I love that outfit! I would have never thought to put a belt on like that, lalalala. . ." One girl came up to me and asked me where I got my sweater because she worked at a maternity boutique and she just though my outfit was so stylish. And guess what? It is a Liz Claiborne sweater, but guess where my mom found it? Goodwill!!! She is a Goodwill diva. She has all kinds of name brand clothes from there like Laura Ashley and Banana Republic and a lot more that I can't remember. But isn't that funny? I guess I could have just said it is a Liz Claiborne, but I just had to tell her the whole truth.


And randomly, our Christmas tree!!! It needs more decorations because Seth and I (being the smarties that we are) accidentally took all of our lights and a lot of our ornaments to the Goodwill. We were trying to just give our Christmas tree from last year away. So, when the box said "Christmas tree" we never thought "Hmmm, maybe the Christmas tree box has more than just the Christmas tree in it." I cried actually because I was so upset that we threw it all out. I was mostly upset because last year my mom gave us a Hallmark "Our first Christmas 2007" ornament. I am hoping she reads this because I am too embarrassed to call her and tell her myself that I gave it away. Plus, I already raided the Goodwill and I couldn't find it anywhere. It is very upsetting, very very. In fact, I get sick in my stomach when I think about it. It was an emotional tree decorating time for us last night (sorry Seth). Nevertheless, it is up and semi-decorated!!!

Your tree is looking good! Don't worry, Seth will learn to cope with your emotionalness (is that even a word?). There will be a lot more of it to come...not sure how you will be, but I got worse after the baby got here!

So sorry you lost your ornaments! :-(
