Just me, a wife to a wonderful husband, child of Christ, working mom to one active little boy, rambling about everyday life...

Guess what I did on Friday night? I played golf with my husband. Even though it was mid July, the weather was just right and I wanted to enjoy and evening with my husband.

Yep, that is me on the course. Don't I look like Tiger? I mean come on, a pregnant girl can only do so much with her outfit. Tank tops are my best friends these days, and aren't you just diggin the pig tails with the visor?

I started golfing (okay, attempting to golf) about 2 years ago. Hubs was really into it and I thought I should try to learn so we can spend some time together. In fact for our 1 year anniversary I was his caddy while he played. No we didn't ride, we walked and I carried his bag. Until about the 4th hole and then I was too tired! I especially liked getting into golf, because it gave me an excuse to buy new clothes. There are some really cute golf clothes out there and whenever I can shop and hubs was supporting it, then heck yeah I am going to learn!

Last night we only played 9 holes and we rode. There was no way this 6 month pregnant lady was going to walk. By like the 3rd hole, my ankles and calves united into one (better known as cankles). My game was not bad, however, I would NOT classify it as good either. But I didn't care. I was glad to spend a wonderful evening with my husband. There is just something about a golf course on a cool summer evening...so peaceful and I was just enjoying the moment.

Supposedly the 7th month is best time to golf, as your stance is perfect and so is your balance. I don't think adding extra pounds to by belly is going to help my game that much. I would have to be good to start with!

Oh sweet baby girl

This is the year of the babies. No, no one has officially declared that, but I am. I must be "at that age". You know when you got married, your older friends said "you are at that age". Now we have moved into the next phase and babies, babies, babies everywhere. I had 2 friends deliver in February. A highschool friend in June, my roommate from college just last week. Another friend is due in August, another in September and then I loose track, because I am the next one! The funny thing is out of the 7 babies (including me) only 2 are boys (one is mine).

So my dear friend LouLou had a sweet baby girl last week. She had to have a c-section, but mom and baby are doing just fine. I had the privilege of visiting her today and oh that baby is so sweet. I breathed in her sweet baby aroma...you know that new baby smell. I took her sockies off to look at her precious little pigs. Boy were those feet long! But still so precious. I kissed her tiny little ears that get all scrunched up. I definitely have the baby bug. It's a good thing I am cooking one! I can't wait till he gets here. Actually I can, because we need a room for him!

On another note...not totally unrelated, I can not find baby bedding that I like. Scratch that, I can find some that I like, I am just not willing to shell out $250-500 for the baby bedding. Call me cheap, but come on, he is not going to be using it till he goes to college. I purchased one, but when it came in, the colors were not at all what the picture looked like. So I have to send it back. I am being very picky about it. I don't want babyish. I want cute, but classy. Hubs is ready to start sewing one himself, as he is ready to paint. Not ready, as he hates to paint, but he just wants to get it done. So the search continues.
