Yup, today I'm 33 years old. It's been a pretty uneventful day, really and I'm ok with that :) After breakfast and a little internet time, I decided to go back to bed for an hour or so and took a great nap with the big old beast which was just perfect. After getting up, tidying some and rallying myself, I took some time to dig around in my closet to find something I hadn't already worn 20 times in the past month and to make myself feel pretty (these last few days of pregnancy are hard, mmkay!?).
A friend dropped by to borrow some tables and ended up hanging out for a bit which was wonderfully welcome. I also got to catch up on the phone with a friend on the the other side of the pond who I miss dearly. I made myself some lemon cupcakes with lemon icing (Have I mentioned my obsession with lemon desserts over the past nine months??) and may have sampled a few.
This evening, my family gathered at my favorite local Indian restaurant where we (me) proceeded to pig out. It was glorious. My sister flew in late last night so she was also in attendance which was a present in itself. We joked about inappropriate subjects, which seems to be the norm in our family, played Mad Libs, shared fantastic food and enjoyed each others company to the fullest.
This dress came from an estate sale this summer (the same sale this dress came from) for a quarter. Yes, a quarter. The belt was previously attached and very awkward so after putting it on this afternoon, I carefully used the seam ripper to remove it and just tied it on as a sash. I can't wait to see what some of these random dresses I've been wearing pregnant will look like when I'm NOT pregnant.
I made the mister (and the beast) join me for one timed photo. I figured this would more than likely be the last belly shoot before she comes so it just made sense. The last time he joined me on one of these was 18 weeks along, when we found out it was a little girl we were having. He shaved off the beard the other day so I keep joking that Rio won't recognize him when she's born ;)
So when will she be here? Who knows but we're alllllllll ready. Very (very, very) ready. And now one of my questions has been answered - I'll be 33 years old with a new baby.
