Monday Musings and belly pic


~do not enjoy getting up before the sun. Blech.

~love late-night talks with my adorable, wonderful, oh-so-handsome husband, so.....I'm willing to sacrifice some sleep every once in a while.

~watched Fireproof for the very first time last night. Yes, I know I am about a year behind everyone else on this, but what a GREAT movie, huh? (That's what prompted that late-night talk....) If you haven't seen this yet, it's awesome--go rent it!

~have a house that seems infested with ladybugs. Not the real ladybugs, mind you--the pretty red ones that 'bring good luck'--but the yucky, smelly, orange kind, known as the Asian ladybug, that were apparently imported here by our government for insect control purposes (they eat aphids) and now are taking over the nation. Or, at least, my house. Or, at least, it feels like it. Ugh. I actually had one crawling up my leg last night while my leg was under my covers in the privacy of my bed....oh, I can't even think about it. Talk about a freak out. Sick, sick, sick.

~spent the last four days growing a third eye. I mean, seriously....what is going on here? I vacillate each day between acne products to control breakouts and age fighters for the ever growing number of fine lines I am starting to see. Who does that? *sigh*

~found a couple of new Etsy sites that I love. Here (more hats--can't help myself) and Here (can you say, personalization-on-everything-we-own-for-this-child?). Plus, my friend Julie is adding new items to her shop almost everyday! I am determined to have hair accessories for every outfit. Ahem.

~go back for a checkup today! Looking forward to hearing my little Peanut! Though, these days--with her vicious kicks, karate chops, constant hiccups, and my ever-expanding frame--I have plenty of visual and tactile reminders that she's there! Cameron and Ethan are coming with me, and Cameron is so excited. He is currently counting the minutes (or, rather, asking me to count them....) until we leave.

27 weeks!!!

Happy Monday, everyone!

You are so cute. Believe it or not, I was maybe a little bit jealous when i saw your adorable belly (hmmm.....) Maybe I should be telling myself something.

Julie said...

Thanks for the props Dev!

You're SO stinkin' cute. And I am SO with you on the battle with both acne AND wrinkles. WHAT THE HECK?

Ande got bitten by an Asian ladybug once and I laughed at him saying, "Ladybugs don't BITE!" until I found out those ones do.

I can't believe you hadn't seen Fireproof prior to now. It's such an awesome movie! Did you watch all the "extras"? (That is sometimes my FAVE part of watching a movie)

How come your hair always looks so cute in your belly pics??? Seriously, you look like you have the world by the tail and are enjoying life so much!!! Pregnancy makes you glow!

Asian Ladybugs? I was just reading about those the other day, and my mom's Gardener's catalog had some traps that stuck to your windowsills and trapped those ought to check the site out! We don't have those here, that I have seen.....ewwwww!

We haven't seen Fireproof yet, everyone is telling us we need to see it, it's so good....maybe one of these days! I can't stay up past the kids at night, so watching movies with the Husband is off the list!

Ah, pregnancy! Wish I was preggers now!!!

Take care!

Hi. I found you through my BFF's blog(corny life) and was reading your blog. I noticed that you were a little down on your skin. I wanted to let you know about an amazing skin care line developed by the doctors Rodan + Fields. You may know their other billion dollar product...Proactiv. Well I represent them and would be happy to have your skin say "thank you Devin!" Go to my website at and look for the "solutions tool". In just minutes the doctors will tell you which line to use.The Regimens are WONDERFUL!!!! I would also suggest calling our nurses line and speak to Mary Radford. She and you can talk about the products. I mention this because you are pregnant and I would do the same before starting any skin care line. Mary is great and will take great care in making sure all your questions are answered.

Ok so off that and on to this. I enjoyed reading your blog and will stop back by.
Have a great day.
