Did you miss me?!

I have been so busy lately, and very uncomfortable with this 'basketball' in my belly, that I haven't sat down to blog or catch up on any blogs lately.

Here is the run down of what I've been up to.
Thanksgiving was a blast and very low key this year, we just had immediate family here to celebrate and we had a little time to lay low. {Much needed lately}We celebrated with my husbands family on Thanksgiving and we are celebrating with my family today, along with my dad's birthday, which somehow always seems to get mixed in with Thanksgiving. :) Sorry dad!

My awesome  hubby got on the computer at 5 am to get a black Friday to get me an awesome deal on a laptop...I will be the very proud owner of a laptop that I can do all my blogging on and also work on my business website stuff on. I have always been the one to get the hand me down laptops, but I finally get my own! Thanks babe!! I can't wait to set it up when it gets here.

My sister-in-law, my mother-in-law and I all went out shopping on black Friday. We were planning on going out at 5am, but decided against that, since I hate crowds and we really didn't need any of the door busters. We headed out at 7am to Kohl's, and I did pretty well. I got Chase a very styling snow suit set, brown and yellow, with brown plaid snow pants....not I just need to find matching hat and mittens. (anyone seen any around?)
I got some misc. toys for the kids at a great price and I got my mom's gift too, which I would have got one for myself, if I didn't have a belly the size of a basketball. (no mom, I am not going to write on here what I got you) :)
I got the kids their Christmas PJ's (we get them Christmas PJ's every year and they get to open them on Christmas Eve.) Abby got adorable snowman ones and Chase got Buzz Light-year ones. (I usually get Christmas themed ones, but this year I went with stuff they like.) Kohl's had horrible half hour long lines, to check out, so I took the easy way out, got myself a chain for my necklace that broke, just so I could check out at the jewelry counter and save myself 25 minutes.
Then we headed to Jimmy Johns, for an early lunch, cause shopping is tough work. :) (Thanks for lunch
We stopped by Famous Footwear, Target, Macy's and  a few more stores. We had a pretty successful shopping day and boy were my feet ready for a break around 1:30 pm when we got done.

Saturday we laid low and had a family day. I spent most of the day doing laundry (my favorite thing to do on a weekend) and cleaning bathrooms, cleaning our room and setting up the cradle, vacuuming, dusting and picking up the rest of the house. Sounds like a fun Saturday right?!
At night we headed to the Mall of America to meet the in-laws for some dinner, shopping and fun rides at the park at mall of America. The kids had two unlimited ride wrist bands, so they went on rides until they couldn't ride anymore. We walked around for about 3 or more hours and then the kids went on rides with daddy and papa, while I sat and people watched, so I didn't have to walk around anymore.

Today is Sunday, and I am still pregnant. Not quite sure how after all these contractions. The doctor said at my last appointment that I wouldn't last another two weeks and each day that goes by, I am not sure I am going to make it through that day. I have my next appointment on Wednesday and we will see how far I have progressed, I am in so much pain and sleep is unheard of, thou I do want the baby to keep growing, I am also ready to be done. We are going to China Inn (the restaurant that I ate spicy food at the day before I gave birth to Chase and Abby) on Thursday night, for a full meal of spicy food, so my guess is Friday for baby arrival date, anyone with any other guesses??

Off I go to eat dessert. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend...I'll be back tomorrow with a 'Not Me' Monday.

I cant wait to see if your plan works! And if it does I expect to have that little one and the other two kiddos in my house for pictures within the 1st two weeks!! Glad you had a great Thanksgiving and hopefully all that walking pays off!

It sounds like your family has had a busy couple of days, but sounds like so much fun (minus that laundry)! I cannot wait to see if the baby comes this week!

It sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving weekend! I had fun shopping too...but I was SUPER ready for a nap when we got home! I hope you can get a little sleep this will need it when the baby gets here!

Lexie Loo, Lily, Liam & Dylan Too said...

Glad you had a good weekend! It sounds like you did a lot of shopping!
We do the Christmas pj's on Christmas Eve, too. :)
I swear, I was in labor for weeks with Lexie. My OB said I wouldn't last another week when I was 35 weeks, and I lasted until 38. I was in so much pain and so miserable by that point, so I really feel for you! I hope the little one comes out soon!

Heather said...

We do the Christmas pjs on Christmas Eve as well! It's such a fun tradition.

Hang in there! I remember those last weeks of pregnancy and feeling like I couldn't possibly stand the contractions for a minute longer. Here's to hoping you have a new little one sooner rather than later!!!

Becca said...

So glad you got such great deals! I would have loved to have gone out but this is actually the first year I wasn't forced to be in it in a long time (I always had to work) so I was enjoying my sleep!

I think it would be the neatest thing if you go into labor after eating there. HOw crazy would that be to happen 3 times!?! GOod luck, I can't wait to see this little guy or girl!

Hopefully that little one will make his/her presence soon!! And sounds like you had an enjoyable weekend. Mine was very similar! :)

Sounds like you guys had a nice Thanksgiving! I am right there with you on the shopping, I did the samething on Friday. I am dying to finish my Christmas shopping early so that I can enjoy the rest of the month. I know you have got to be going crazy wanting to know the sex of the baby, that is so cool that you have made it this far without finding out.
