Peppermint, Key Lime Pie and other essentials.

My life seems to be a sea of hormones these days. I'll just start out by saying that I cry a lot and that it results in buying myself lots of Sonic drinks and maybe a pair of new shoes...or two. I actually haven't bought shoes, but that is only because my daughter needs diapers and Jackson had to get a new pair for himself, but you probably didn't need to know that. It sounded better when you thought I was getting 2 new pairs of shoes. It sounded better to me too...

Saturday morning I woke up in a heap of despair. I felt huge with still 3 months to go and had tried on at least 4 different outfits that day that all looked terrible. I sat down on the bed crying and decided that I could in no way go until the end of January. The Lord knew what he was doing when he put Jason and I together because he calmly told me that life would be okay and that I looked beautiful. I still didn't see any of his point, but okay....keep going. My emotional breakdown must have touched a spot of sympathy in him (or fear) and he told me we were going out to buy me some maternity clothes that I would feel good in. I don't argue with a man that wants to buy me clothes. No matter what the purpose.

He's a great husband. I know he will be excited to have his wife back in 3 months. ;)

Isn't he handsome? This time in our lives has brought us closer than ever....even when I am a crazy, emotional, pregnant, swollen woman.

Some questions I've been pondering...

Why do pregnant women suffer from insomnia?
Why can't we have ice cream whenever we want to?
Why do I get acne like I'm 14 again?
Why do naps make you even meaner?
Why do I dream of these every night?

Okay, maybe that last question was totally made up.

Oh Natalie, I can really relate with feeling yucky in maternity clothes. I think I change my top 3 times each morning. I'm not the perfectly rounded out belly - I'm just fat-looking. Nice people insist otherwise but I know what I'm looking at, and it's not the skinny pregnant mom type. I would love to update my maternity wear as well but we can't. I've been eyeing a green henley at Target for about a month and they never seem to wanna put it on the clearance rack. Otherwise I'd buy it and wear it every day. I hope your new clothes give you sustenance for the remaining 3 months. It'll all be over sooner than you think.

Natalie, you ARE beautiful... but I can so remember the feeling. Your post made me laugh though. You're cute, even when you're feeling bad! :) Just so you know, I want to buy you those boots. I can't. But I want to. It's the thought that counts right?!

Natalie, I was just thinking yesterday how beautiful you looked up on stage (I swear, I'm not just saying that either!). God's presence in you makes you radiant. Dreaming (or not) those are some seriously cute boots! I wish I could buy them for you <3. God bless Jason for taking you shopping...what a guy!
