A Winning Catch-Up

Posted: May 17, 2010 at 9:15 am

Are you playing catch up from the weekend? A good bit went down here on Faith, Fitness, and Fun. Nothing quite as exciting as last weekend, but I still rambled plenty. Which you would never be able to tell from how much I ramble in my catch up. Ha!

  • I discussed being nervous after my confirmation of pregnancy visit on Friday. I’m hoping for a good phone call today. I have had two more positive tests of a different brand ($ Store brand…yes, they make preggo tests) and symptoms keep getting stronger so I think all is well. Won’t stop me from praying though! The first trimester is the big “scare zone”. I’m thankful I told you all early (aka the day I found out) so I have the option to share all my feelings here. I would spontaneously combust otherwise. And we wouldn’t want that now would we. You can appease me with kind comments. 😉
  • I showed a beautiful side of me – some pictures of my bloating belly and begging. Although to the eye the bloating may not be something you want to look at, I thank all of you for your encouragement and letting me know I’m not the only one. I fully embrace it. Any part of pregnancy I love and I know my body is doing it’s thing the right way. I’m actually excited that you show sooner and more with the 2nd pregnancy. I love having the belly bump. And as for my begging for guest posts…I will email you sometime today or tomorrow to confirm with each of you that commented your interest. The more, the merrier so if you would like to do a guest post for me coming up shoot me an email and check out the details here. Thank you so much to all of you already willing to help a girl out!
  • I partied it up and shared some frustrations I have been having with a friend. I’m already feeling much better about the situation and I do believe it was an honest mistake from her being caught up in the excitement of her shower. Even with a changing friendship, she is still a quality friend so I trust it was nothing intentional or hurtful. I do have some thoughts still floating around on all that which I may share later.
  • Lastly, I updated the layout of my blog so click out of your Reader and let me know what you think.

I will be back a little later with something new and exciting, but I know it’s hard to keep up over the weekend so there you go. And now for the winning part of this catch up…The Winner of the CSN Stores Giveaway!!!!! (roars, whistles, hoots, hollers from the peanut gallery)
