Friday Night Date Night

As "D-day" (Deliver Day) approaches we seem to be cooking less and less on certain nights. We definitely can recognize when neither of us have the energy to power through cooking a meal. At least we know to not force it. Andy was on call this past week and was called in 4 times...and didn't get much sleep. This caused me to stay up a lot thinking to myself "Don't arrive now Captain Fuzzypants. Dad will be tired..." I know sounds weird but that's how my brain works.  Found out later Andy was thinking the same thing.

Last night was the first night all week that we were able to both relax and enjoy some time together. We ordered take out from Pho Square: 2 orders of Stir Fry Pho Combos with lemon grass chicken and beef and we each got a "Freeze". I got the mango and A ordered the coconut (which sort of ended up tasting like buttered popcorn jelly bellies...not my fave but Andy saved his and plans on having it with breakfast this morning).  (*side note: weird random guy @ the restaurant when we picked up our orders, "When are you due?" Me, "Next week". Weird guy: "How do you know that?"....seriously dude....then he proceeded to ask if this was our last supper and told us we won't be getting any sleep soon...thanks jerk).

We sat in front of the TV, fireplace roaring and watched Assassin in Love, also known as The Baker (it's an English thing). Great movie. It's funny and was a good pick for a night in.

We also watched some old movies from back in the day; i.e. Game night with Boo & Ray, Game Night with Eric, Steph, Cooper & Amber, New Year's Celebration 2004 (before we were even engaged), Bonfire @ my Aunt Annie & Uncle Dan's, visiting my Dad at his job way back when in Mauston, WI and us arriving back into town to my parents house see the devastation from the straight line winds July 2003, videos of Andy's Aunt Sue (being hilarious) and Sharon (playing butt darts of course).



All in all we laughed a lot last night and had a good time. Right now I'm watching Andy make what we call One Eyed Bobs (will blog later about those). Tonight, we grill a homemade pizza and watch more movies.

I'm Pregnant-Don't Comment on My Weight

I am now 30 weeks pregnant with my second child. I'm excited...I'm over this pregnancy though. I'm sure several of you can relate. I now have an inquisitive, adventurous and busy 2.75 year old running around. It's been a hot summer. I hate the humidity. I'm glad we are only a few days away the official start of Fall. AND I'm ready to say F you to anyone else who feels it appropriate to comment on the additional weight I have gained during this pregnancy.

Before having Augie, I was in the best shape of my life. I exercised daily-vigorously. I ate healthy and cooked elaborate, fun meals. I had hobbies.

This pregnancy has been harder on my body and my brain. I started 10 lbs heavier, less fit, more sleep deprived and still searching to find a balance between being a Mom, maintaining a strong relationship with Andy and being the best in my work life as possible.

I've been to the Dr. plenty of times - Had plenty of ultrasounds - Had potential gall bladder pains/…

Going Gluten Free-Dairy Free

Over the past several weeks I've changed my diet drastically. The wee one is a gassy little man and as I have adjusted my diet, I've noticed things have changed for the better. There is a lot of information floating around about eliminating certain foods from your diet which can irritate babies digestive systems. The major players that can affect infants are dairy, wheat, soy, eggs, beans, broccoli, spinach, peanuts, and citrus fruits, among a few others. I have cut all of these out of my diet except for eggs. This means no cheese, greek yogurt and other good things that I love to eat....however I've noticed that with cutting these things out, not only is Augie's digestive system is mine. It's a win win. Of course I still miss eating a few of these things (specifically cheese, greek yo and peanut butter!), but I feel pretty good with the whole process. 
So, with undertaking this adventure we have embarked on some new dishes in the kitchen. We are still g…

Roller Derby Shower!

This is me, Sinful Sally, on skates just over a year ago. My last bout, before hanging up my skates for retirement, was in August 2010.

This is me now...

Today was the roller derby shower, hosted by my derby chicks that I used to spend 2-4 nights a week and numerous weekends every month.  I miss seeing them so often. And after skating a bout last night and staying out late to party, they made the baby shower a day to remember. It was, over the top, fantastic and a blast.

We played lots of games:

The baby picture game...bring your baby picture and try to pick out who is who. The draw what the baby will look like...using a paper plate on top of your head. The diaper game...split into teams of three, take one roll of TP, create a diaper as fast as you can with the WHOLE roll.

The name that tune (title and artist) with 17 songs which have the name Baby or Babe in the title. 

Turbo Trixie made a boat load of phenomenal food (I should have taken pictures: artichoke dip, homemade pretzels, mea…
