35 weeks y'all

This past weekend Ryan, Zap, and I signed up to get our pics taken by the wonderful Robyn Arouty. She does a fabulous service for local dog rescue organizations by running weekend specials and the proceeds go towards the designated rescue org. This weekend was benefiting the Lone Star Shih Tzu & Lhasa Apso Rescue group which is run by the lady who owns the boarding/doggie day care facility we take Zap to. So, we thought we'd sign up. Obviously, I'm not really into the whole maternity pic thing (as evidenced in the photo). But we thought this photo summed up the essence that is Ryan and Liz.

33 weeks and baby shower!

33 weeks (last week)

We had our first baby shower this past weekend, hosted by my wonderful and dear friend (more like a sister) Nora and it was an absolute blast! Ryan and I cannot get over how blessed we are to have such amazing friends and family. It just blows our mind how excited everyone is about BB! I mean, why shouldn't everyone be excited right? Our kid is going to be a spoiled bucket of awesome.

For the weekend festivities, Ryan's cousin, Kyle, wife Amy and kiddo Konner, came in for the weekend and we had such a great time. Their baby is such a sweet and happy little boy. We think Zapato will take his role as big brother very seriously. He came running (RUNNING) into whichever room Konnor was in anytime he would start to cry.

3.5 generations

Me with the wonderful hostess, Nora.

Finally, we had our rocking chair repainted and reupholstered. This particular rocking chair rocked all three generations of women in the picture above. All rocked by my great-grandmother.

Things that I want to say to people at work

1. I'm sorry, I thought this was the elevator. When did I walk into the "let's talk about my cervix room"? And who the hell are you? I've never seen you before in my life.

2. Yes, I know you're a doctor. You are probably awesome at what you do because you work here. Please don't tell me about your pregnant cancer stricken patients. Do they offer social skills in your continuing medical education requirements? They should.

3. I am allowed 250mg of caffeine a day. Back. The. Hell. Off.

4. Perhaps you misunderstood me. I asked "is the drug company providing lunch for this meeting" not "please tell me about your vaginal tearing from your son's birth 5 years ago". I can understand how they sound the same and no, I'm no longer interested in who's providing lunch.

5. Yes, I have gotten big. I'm growing a human. This is what tends to happen. However, I fail to see how I've gotten SO MUCH bigger from yesterday when you said the same thing. Again. For the 30th consecutive day. I don't say that about your ass do I? No. I didn't think so.

What the heck?

For the most part, our little dog is awesome. During the day he has free reign of the house. We can honestly count on one hand how many issues we've had with him while we've been gone. One day, he decided to climb on the kitchen table and destroy a Costco box of instant oatmeal (sticky and messy). Another day he decided that the chaise pillow had it out for him and he proceeded to disembowel the darn thing. Today, apparently, he concluded that it is difficult to make a sandwich for tomorrow's lunch without thumbs.

Solution: to hell with ziploc bags!

32 weeks y'all

So this is what I look like at 32 weeks pregnant. It is also what I would look like if I were to have swallowed a beachball.
