Makes me SMILE Week 46 and 47

Where have I been?

Standard

I wish I could give you some totally impressive answer like in the Mountains skiing, or on a beach in Florida or camping in some national park.  No, I have been at home and work and doing the normal life stuff.  BORING!  Life has been so of the norm that I guess I have not been inspired lately and have left this blog sparse with any coolness.  Not that I had much before.

Baby B (B, as in Second Child, B, as in last name starts with B, Not B, as in that is what the name is going to start with.) is growing right along with the size of my belly!  Little Man seems to still be happy about he whole thing and every now and then he will want to hug, kiss, sing or listen to the baby.  I can’t get over how big he is.  We are also excited that we will have an ultrasound in the next 3-4 weeks, and yes we are going to find out the gender!  We have already cleared out the “Toy Room” to make it the baby room.  Which took some work, Organizing, Donating and furniture buying to accommodate the toys being in other parts of our house.  Now we just need to pull out all the baby gear from the attic and see what we have and don’t have and if there is anything to re-buy.

We are gearing up for Thanksgiving this year.  This will be the first Thanksgiving at our house so our first Turkey too!  I have been on The Food Network Website watching videos and taking notes.  Should be interesting!  It will be Potluck so we will really only have to worry about the Turkey and a dessert.  So imagine me doing that thing where I pretend to wipe away sweat from my brow meaning that was a close one and we got away with something.  I can’t fathom having to do a whole Thanksgiving meal.

I have also been trying to spend as much time with my two best friends seeing how soon it will only be one best friend.  That’s right, two of the very most important people in my life of all time (Bestie and her daughter) are moving.  Moving 1200 miles away.  Do you know what 1200 miles is?  It is, life is so busy and I am not rich enough to just hop on a plane when I want that it will be years before we see each other again.  I have shed soo many tears over this and if I think about it too long they start pouring out of my eyes before I can suck them back in.  But that is another post.  Right now there is no set date just a cloud of know that we don’t have much time looming over us.

Well, that’s it for now.  I hate to end on a sad note.  I wish there was more to write or post about lately and I’m sorry there’s not.  I will have a fun post coming soon about old wives tales soon.  I hope that all your Thanksgiving planning is coming along and that everyone is spending it with the people they love!  Oh and great food, the best part!
