Oh, Just Your Usual Dry-Heave of Wordlets...

It's always safe to assume that any lapse in my blogging is directly related to my stays in New Jersey. 


In fact, it should be documented that this was the first trip to New Jersey that I've made this year where I haven't brought along my computer and my camera. 


Yes, at times it felt as if I was missing a limb, but I would be lying if I said it wasn't just the tiniest bit sweet to "unplug" from "work" for a bit. 


That being said, not posting on a Monday is akin to going to bed without brushing my teeth. In other words, downright blasphemy. I hate not posting on a Monday and truth be told, I had a wonderful, pimp-tastic post written up showcasing two of my favorite sponsors this month and not only did Blogger refuse to post it at the designated time, it also decided to eat the scheduled draft. 


If you're in the market for darling clippies, hair accessories and bows, you'll definitely want to visit Polkadot Posies. April makes some of the sweetest hair clips I've ever seen and with a delicious array of seasonal and holiday-themed clips, there are lots to choose from!


If you're a sucker for sweet, quality, custom and affordable kid's clothes, be sure to follow The Little Crane on Facebook. My wonderful and amazing virtual mom-friends over there have recently started adding "Buy It Now" albums chock full of adorable summer clothes for both girls and boys and what a steal!


That wasn't too painful, was it? 


In other news, I'm completely over being pregnant. I've reached That Point where I'm grumpy approximately 87% of the day and 100% of the time it feels as if my pelvis will immediately become unhinged from the rest of my body. 


A very kind woman downright insisted that I was birthing twins the other day as I walked around the grocer with  both C and my Dad. Because the 6 ultrasounds that I've had, clearly depicting a singleton pregnancy, mean absolutely nothing. And yes, she even used the word "huge." 


I've also reached That Point in pregnancy where I'll tell you just exactly how I'm feeling so if you insist that I'm expecting twins and you appear to be expecting triplets (although even I, a complete stranger, know you're not expecting?) I'm going to ask, "and how far along are you?" 


Touche.

  2. HAHA "and how far along are you?!" LOVE THIS! I'm over pregnancy and I'm only 17 weeks {tomorrow - but whose counting?} 24/7 nausea is no flipping joke. UGH! At least we get sweet little boys as the end result! :)

  5. I wish I had the courage to comeback with an honest and MEAN reply to the 100 ridiculous comments I get a day ... I would totally do it, so I hope you did ask her "when are you due?"

  6. Just tell those people to go suck it! When I was pregnant, I went to CVS to pick up a script. I was about 99 weeks pregnant and it was HOT AS A MUTHA outside. And that didn't make for a very happy Me. This lady standing inline proceeded to say that I really shouldn't be outside in this weather and that I was too huge to be on my legs....Oh, well....gee, thanks! People just don't know how to hold their tongues!

  8. Well, for your sake, hurry up M2..but stay put until you need to. And, in a word, AWESOME if you are getting to the blunt point of pregnancy. Women in third trimester of pregnancy have a free pass to say what's on their minds right?! Thanks for recommending Polkadot Posies...adorable!

  10. I just had to clean up coffee that came flying out of my nose... my little 6 month old in the next room napping stirred a bit with the comotion-and I must say, "Good for you!". I wished I had your courage when I was pregnant... perhaps when another one is on the way in the future : ). Love reading about you sweet family- thanks for sharing your adventures with us.

  11. hahaha...I so wish I was ballsy enough to say that back!! You're my hero.

    If I hear from one more person how miserable & hot I will be this summer, I will lose my crap. Seriously. I have lived in the south my ENTIRE life, I get it. It's freaking hot.

    I can't believe how close you are to having that sweet baby!!

  12. If someone said that to me I'd punch them. I wish I would, though--I would never. I would be way too nice and then hate myself later for not standing up to the evil biyatch. lol.
