Bay to Breakers 2011

23 May

Although I missed the Bay to Breakers this year, I was at the finish line to capture some of the moments of the historic 100th year of the race. Hoping to get back into the action next year!!

Maternity Instincts

13 May

I came clean in my last post about our impending new arrival and now I can vent! And my favorite topic right now is maternity clothes. They are also my least favorite thing and will always be. I know I still have a long way to go before I can get out of them but they disgust me no end. I was at the maternity store and the sales gal at the store was proudly showing off how comfy the clothes were and how she loved wearing them even though she wasnt pregnant. I do not think anyone in their right mind would do such a thing and I am sure they must have drugged her to do it.
During my last stint with maternity, I had to fight the urge to burn them down once I was done.

All the swearing and burning, its those hormones I tell ya!

On a side note, the same hormones also made me create this. Its not a quilt exactly, its a fleece blanket made from left over fabric that I cut out into squares and sewed together.

I especially love the blue elephant with his red ears 🙂

Happy Mother’s Day

6 May

Last night’s conversation at home –
Me(to R): Are you gonna get me a Mother’s Day gift?
R: What do you want? You know its so hard for me to think of something.
Me: Well, I’ve already ordered something for myself so you can relax but you can do something else for me.
R: What?
Me: I would like to just sleep late into the morning. Can you and your daughter just disappear somewhere?
TWO SECOND PAUSE
R: That’s not a gift, it’s blackmail!!
Me: Whatever, I dont care!! :-))

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there!!
(And they say, sleep is overrated!!)
