Big Ole Liar!

I know, I know. Over a week ago, I said I'd be back later that evening. What can I say? I'm a big ole liar.

Actually, I'm a big ole pregnant woman and I spent last week recuperating from my fun time with my mom. Last week I napped, I watched a little TV, I napped, I read other people's blogs, I napped, I read magazines. And, oh, have I mentioned I napped?

Now before you think I'm terribly lazy, let me explain! 1st off I'm in my 3rd trimester now and everything I've read says that I'm going to start tiring easier. Well, they ain't lyin'! I fold laundry and I have to sit down and catch my breath!

Secondly (and more exciting!) my mom was in town for a week! We did all sorts of fun stuff--shopped for baby, ate out at some fun restaurants (went to an Irish pub for St. Patrick's Day where my "rebellious" husband had a margarita. At least it was green...), shopped for baby, Ricky and I took her on a little driving tour of some of the cute Chicago neighborhoods, shopped for baby, saw some theatre (Court Theatre's Wait Until Dark--story was good, set was awesome, acting was so-so), shopped for ME (Mom bought me tons of cute pj's/lounge wear to wear around the house after the baby comes), and shopped some more for baby!

By the end of her week here, we had pretty much wrapped up the shopping for the nursery. Ricky and I had already found the crib and dresser/changing table. Mom and I found the lamps, an adorable chair and ottoman, a rug and some cute decorative shelves. Ricky painted the room this past weekend so now we just need to find a day to get in there and arrange it all just so!

So see? I wasn't just being lazy last week. I was recovering!

Now that I'm back I have all sorts of fun things to share with y'all--my 1st baby shower was a month ago, I hope to have nursery pix to post soon, I have a question about music, I've found another commercial that annoys me, the list goes on and on.

So stay tuned. This time I mean it when I say I'll be back soon. I promise!

Yeah! Glad you're back! I missed you. Anywho . . . we were in Alabama last week visiting Mike's fam. Glad to be home and lots to catch up on. We need to chat about the shower weekend, etc. Can't wait!
Enjoy your naps! You deserve every minute!
