Another week down. Every day I'm creeping just a little closer to meeting my new boy and fitting into my old clothes. I can't wait. This weekend we made our last pre-baby trip out of town. Now that I am 2 weeks away from where I was when I had Bear I've decided to stick close to home, and my doctor, until he arrives. We made a quick trip down to see my parents in Houston and had a good time. It was nice to get out of town with the hubby even if it was just for the night. My parents watched Bear Saturday for a little bit so my husband and I could have a lovely lunch outdoors at a nice little Italian joint on the lake.
Then my Mom and I did some grocery shopping for dinner and picked up steaks for the guys to grill for dinner. My Mom also bought us some chocolate covered strawberries, yum! My stepdad and I took some time before dinner to do my taxes. I am so relieved to have those taken care of before the baby comes. I could have done them myself but it is nice to have someone help me with a few of my questions just to make sure I don't miss something.
We got home this afternoon and Bear has been being a bit of a bear. He never sleeps well when we travel so we put him to bed 45 minutes early tonight. He kept me up from 3:30 - 5:30 a.m. this morning as if my sleep isn't bad enough with the backaches, peeing, and hip pain.
I entertained myself this weekend by reading The Pioneer Woman's love story. I had heard about it for awhile but hadn't actually read it yet. It was a great story to read around Valentine's Day. I am eagerly awaiting her next installment. I have also been tackling a few of her recipes lately. I did the French Onion soup Friday night and it was good but it would have been better if I had a dutch oven so I could have properly caramelized my onions. I'll have to add one of those to my wish list of kitchen gadgets.
