Happy Halloween!!!

What did you go as?

I got sick this week so I wasn't able to get my bumble bee costume put together :( So I just went as "knocked up" instead (costume-less). I bet my costume took longer to make than yours! Hee hee :)

What I'm listening to:

Ray LaMontagne
Paulo Nutini
Keb' Mo'
Jason Myles Goss

You have got to check them out if you haven't heard of them. Great music!

What NOT to say or do to a pregnant lady:

I am not a very sensative person, especially pregnant. I don't mind if you touch my belly or want to feel the baby kick. I don't mind you saying, "Wow! you're getting bigger" because I am and right now I feel sexier than I've ever been due to my fat rolls being smoothed out because of my stretching belly.

HOWEVER, if I look like I'm waddling, don't imitate it. LOL.

Late 20's

Well, do I look it? I have officially turned "late 20's". It's kind of a scary thought knowing that my youth is behind me.

It's a BOY!!!

My husband and I are having a baby boy and have named him Isaac. We haven't quite figured out a middle name yet so if you have any serious suggestions, we'd love to hear them. Serious meaning not some weird name or beer brand like Guinness which is what my husband wanted...great beer, not great middle name.

But I'd like to share with you how we came up with his name. Husband and I have been trying to have Isaac now for two+ years. After an Ectopic (tubal) pregnancy we became very discouraged and started to wonder if having children was even in our plans. We knew God was promising children to us but that promise was overwhelmed by what-ifs overcrowding our thoughts. Thinking I wouldn't be able to provide children for my husband helped me spiral downwards, eventually being diagnosed with severe depression. But I knew God's promise.

I took comfort in Abraham and Sarah's story in the book of Genesis from the Old Testimate of the Bible. Like God promised a child to them, I knew to wait patiently for our promise to be fulfilled. And luckily the thought of my husband sleeping with our maid-servant was not appealing to me (read the story, you'll get it). Even though Abraham and Sarah were very very old and waited much longer than we did, it still seemed to relate to me and comfort me throughout this time.

Low and behold, God blessed Abraham and Sarah with a son, whom they named Isaac. Isaac eventually became the ruler of the Christian Nation. And not that our son will be expected to live up to that high of expectations, he will live knowing that God has chosen him to be our son. We are so very thankful for that.

(See his wanker?!)

I'm going as a bumble bee! My 5 month pregnant belly will be a perfect replica of the bumble bee's belly. I'll find a long yellow shirt dress and add stripes to it, either with a sharpie or black electrical tape. Then I'll use a belt to synch up the waist and add the stinger to the back of the belt made out of cardboard tube. Then for the wings, simple coat hangers bent into the shape of wings using cream tights and spray glitter. Then for the legs, I've got the perfect pair of footless black tights. It'll be wonderful!

What are you going to be for Halloween?
