Real Pants

Monday, January 1st, was my husbands birthday.  We didn’t have any big mind-boggling plans given the fact that we are fast approaching my due date (Jan. 8) and basically on Baby Watch.  Also, his birthday does tend to get overlooked since it is also a “holiday.”  I do everything that I can to make sure that we celebrate him and his birthday but that’s the bad part about having a birthday on or near a holiday.

We rang in the New Year with champagne (for him) and sparkling white grape juice (for me) while toggling back and forth between the Ryan Seacrest and Steve Harvey celebrations on t.v.  After we rang in the new year I gave him his birthday presents.  He had asked for some new workout gear so I got him a new pair of running shorts, t-shirt, and some athletic pants in size tall that aren’t floods.  Also, I bought him a Bob Ross chia pet and some other little things.

We went to bed around 2am and then had a lazy day.  We did need to go grocery shopping and he has been talking about wanting wings so I suggested that we go out to dinner to celebrate his birthday and then go grocery shopping after.  He agreed and I got showered and dressed.  I was quite proud of myself for putting on real pants to go out to dinner.  I paired my khaki maternity pants with a navy and white striped maternity t-shirt and added a brown grandpa style cardigan for warmth.  Lastly, I slid my feet into my knock-off Sperry’s and called it good to go.

After dinner we went to the grocery store but they had closed early for the holiday which we were not aware of.  It wasn’t too heartbreaking though since neither one of us really wanted to go grocery shopping.  LOL.  So, we came back home and just hung out the rest of the night.

I am 39 weeks pregnant and ready to get this show on the road.  I am just trying to take one day at a time and not be too whiny or complain-y.  I’m not sure I’m doing too good of a job but I am trying.
