labor day & labor pains.

andy and i had a wonderful labor day weekend.
we soaked up our time together as just the two of us and it was perfect.
we are certain that this was our last long weekend with out a little babe so we lived it up!
we ate out a ton, stayed up late, slept in (nothing new for me), shopped a bit and just cuddled alot.
i loved every minute of it and would be lying if i said i wasn't a bit emotional about andy going back to work this morning.
crazy? yeah probably.
loving the self timer.
andy was annoyed that i was wanting to document this weekend and that we had to use the self timer. 
he thought it was nerdy, but you understand right?
on our way to church sunday morning something very 'mom' happened to yours truly. . .
just a taste of things to come, i suppose.
we were drivng along and i had some type of pregnancy convulsion and spilled my entire cup of oj all over the place. 
it was hysterical and i was highly annoyed but we rushed home, swapped dresses and off we went again.
that night we went to see the switch. 
good movie, we love jason bateman.

do you see what i see?
doesn't it look like we did our grocery shopping in abilene at a united?
we found a market street, practically united, in colleyville and i have never felt more at home. 
andy had to go with me for this trip and for any upcoming trip to any public shopping adventure because i am having some major pains at the tip top of my legs.
you get the idea. 
they are intense, our doctor says it's normal and fine but goodNESS i am considering putting myself on bed rest just because there is no sense in me getting out of the house and embarassing myself in public.
plus i am terrified of going into labor in the middle of target or tjmaxx.

we ended our long weekend with a sugary treat.
sherbert and sugar cookies, pregnant mama's dream. 
it was yummy!

real quick. . .
you have to check out these two sites.
tara's new website is up and running and is so fantastic. 
go check her out and book her quick for your next shoot. 
such talent, we love her.
kyley and lauren have their hold & hug blog up!
i am so thrilled that i have a pair of these and you should too!
go browse their site and snatch up a pair.
you won't regret it!
we are exactly twenty days out from our due date, i have a feeling that our little bundle will be arriving fashionably late.
however i am beyond ready to meet her, things are uncomfortable and a bit hard to manuever these days so maybe if she really loves her mama she'll come in twenty days.
no more, no less. 
my extreme type a self kicks in when i think about labor and delivery and water breaking and all of that.
i like a scheduled life.

  2. Hi Jessica!

    I don't know if you remember me or not, but I just stumbled upon your blog and had to tell you that you are by far one of the CUTEST pregnant people I've ever seen!! I'm so excited for you guys to meet your baby girl-there is nothing better this side of Heaven :)

    God Bless-and I'll be praying she comes in 20 days-no more, no less :)

  3. You are the cutest! I kinda wanna be you:) Especially pregnant you! I just look like a blown up whale and I'm only half way there! I hope these next 20 days or so are pain free and go by fast.
