Some Belated Updates

Wow!  I can't believe it's been 2 whole weeks since my last post.  Everything here is still going really well, I just feel like I've been really busy.  I've entered the third and final trimester of this pregnancy and have been feeling a little more tired....or maybe it's just lazy.  Things have been pretty busy at my office and are only going to get worse as I try to 'work ahead' before I go on maternity leave.  I think I've mentioned this before, but in March I transferred to a new department, which I really love, but I'm still learning so much about my responsibilities, that every once in a while I'm nervous about being gone.  Although for the most part, I've been able to not worry about that, which is a huge deal for me!

After work most days I just feel like I need to spend my evening relaxing, which honestly, does help me to feel better during the day at work, so it's probably what my body needs right now.

Last weekend, after tailgating and going to a college football game on Saturday, I rushed up to Chicago to attend a bachelorette party for one of my very close college friends.  It was really fun, but I was also really tired the next day.  We stayed out pretty late, but most of the activities were suitable for pregnant ladies which was good since there were 3 of us there :)

Last week we had a big work trip on Tuesday.  We were scheduled to be back in town around 7:00, but didn't end up getting here until almost 9, which was annoying and made me super tired.  We took a big chartered bus for the trip which I didn't find to be the most pleasant way to travel.

Friday was my 30th birthday, which came and went very smoothly.  I took the day off of work which was lovely.  I got my house all cleaned (except for vacuuming....I seemed to overdo it a bit and had to just sit down and rest for a bit).  My parents came into town and J, my BIL, and dad went golfing.  While my mom, sister, and I went to lunch and run a few errands.  My mom needed to pick up a gift for one of my SILs for the big triple shower (more on that later this week).  We all reconnected later in the afternoon and headed off to Cincinnati.  We stayed at a hotel on the Kentucky side which was right along the river with amazing views.  It was such a fun and relaxing weekend.

J and I also both have today off of work (originally we had planned on going to Vegas for a long weekend - and just decided to keep the day off anyway).  We are planning to go out to lunch, get some major yard work done before it gets too cold, and hopefully work on a few things in the baby's room.  I'm hoping to feel really accomplished by the end of the day!
