Two weeks ago we traveled to east Texas to celebrate the marriage of one of my college friends, Jamie Herlocker, and her husband Josh. Jamie was in Jon and I's wedding, and it was such a joy to see these 2 finally get married! We stopped in Tyler, TX on the way to visit Uncle Todd and Aunt Priscilla. Last weekend we went to Bryan to celebrate Paw Paw's 87th birthday! He eats Whataburger everyday for breakfast and fried food for every other meal, yet does not have high cholesterol. Hopefully Jon inherited some of those genes!
This week was pretty busy for me. Monday night, I went to a book club meeting with friends Arielle and Jenny. It was more of an excuse to have some "girl" time! On Tuesday, I met Kelly and her friend Jamie at the Galleria for shopping and dinner. I hadn't seen Kelly since her wedding 3 weeks ago and it felt like an eternity...haha. On Wednesday, I had a doctor appointment. Baby girl is doing well and I'll now start going to the doctor every 3 weeks! I was also informed that my belly will grow another 18 cm before she is born. I can no longer fit into any pants unless they have a stretchy belly. I've been able to feel her kick more, which is very exciting. She is at her squirmy peak right when I'm getting into bed. Jon has been able to feel it a few times...just another reminder of what's in store this December!
Also, my college roommate, Jennifer Simar, got engaged this past week!!! She lives in Washington, DC where she met her fiance', Jason. He proposed in a clever way in front of the Lincoln Memorial: He asked a stranger to take a picture of them in front of Abe, then as Jennifer began to pose for the picture, he got down on one knee!! I'm SO excited for her!
Work is good. Due to some changes at the office, I now work 7:30-5 everyday and will probably work through October. Jon has also had more manageable work hours, and has enjoyed getting home by 6 instead of 8 every night. That's all for now...next post in the near future
