30 but not so flirty

Happy Friday!!  Did this week go by fast for anyone else?  I feel like it did over here!  No complaints about that though.  The weekend is here and even though it's going to be a rainy one, I have fun things to look forward to.  Tomorrow there is a baby/maternity consignment sale I'm going to check out with my mom.  And then Sunday I have my first baby shower with my mom's side of the family.  There's been some tough times in her family as of late so we all need an excuse to have fun and celebrate something exciting for a change!

I have another story to share.  Last night the Pants Monkey and I went to another birthing type class as we're trying to be armed with as much knowledge and tools at our disposal as possible.  It was a fairly small class, maybe seven or so couples.  The beginning of class was kind of some talking and discussing activities with our partners and then we took a break.  This one couple that was sitting in front of us seemed just totally odd.  The dad kept making kind of off the wall remarks and the mom seemed kind of controlling.  Anyway, after the break I kind of stopped paying attention to them because then we got up to try some different positions/relaxation things.  Sometime later we ended up taking another break before doing some more of these activities and I guess at that second break - the couple completely left the class!  I was so zoned on what we were doing I didn't even notice, but the Pants Monkey said that they were definitely having a heated discussion that ended in the mom walking out and the dad kind of saying "I guess she's just not feeling it."  I realized later that there was an empty floor mat and birth ball, but I just didn't think anything of it.  Kudos to the class instructor too, she just kept on going without really calling attention to it at all.  It was just the craziest thing ever!

We're on day number two of dreary, rainy weather.  We have definitely been needing this rain, but man, it makes it hard to want to get up in the morning!  I decided to wear my cute new vintage moccasins from Tandem Vintage today - they're more leathery than regular mocs and these have grips on the bottom, so I figured they'd handle the rain much better than my other suede mocs would!

And here's our weekly bump shot - 30 weeks today!  Home stretch people!  I'm feeling his weight more and more and find at the end of the day sometimes I need to get my feet up.  But overall I'm blessed to still be feeling relatively good.  I said it last week and I'll say it again, lots to get done in the next 10 or so weeks!  It's my favorite time of year though - Fall into early Winter - I love the upcoming holidays and having a new cuddly baby for Christmas is going to be just the most wonderful thing.  I get chills just thinking of it all!
