So here is the deal. I've been telling people there are 2 weeks left. This is completely true. I'm actually technically only 37 weeks right now (and will be 38 this Thur). The discrepancy is simply I know that I will have to pick an induction date before my actual due date (10/14/10). That date will most likely be 10/11/10...but only b/c 10/10/10 is a Sunday! :-)
So this picture is taken pretty much 2 weeks to the day before I'm to give birth. I actually LOVE this picture. I love my pants (more on those in a moment) and the fact I'm barefoot. Just seems sorta funny...especially since I was born in a "barefoot and pregnant" sort of state.
ANYWAY...the pants! My brother was married 1 week before Peter was born. I had the awful task of figuring out what to wear. I managed to find something that would work at Wal-Mart...nice and cheap. When we moved I went through the clothes in my closet. My dearest husband has been encouraging me to overcome my pack-rat tendencies. I distinctly remember thinking "The chances of me attending an important marriage right before I'm due is pretty slim..." and tossed the clothes.
Yeah. Just kidding! My brother's BFF who is part of our family decided to get hitched. (GREAT gal! Love her!) AND - they asked me to attend the guest book. SURE...NO PROBLEM! I was happy they asked (and that they didn't stick me on cake duty!). So here I was...in the SAME situation. Wal-Mart was NOT helpful this time. I had some corduroys I was planning on using as a backup plan, but sorta wanted something a wee bit dressier. So off to JC Penney's I went. I found a pair of pants, 1 size smaller than what I have been wearing. I went ahead and tried them on, and THEY FIT! I have to say - I'm SUPER thrilled! AND to top it off I got them for $15 for a total of $21 savings. Gotta love those sales and coupons.
And...this picture gives you an idea of how long I had gone between hair cuts...I don't plan on doing that again! Yikes!
