I did some reading about the whole water retention thing and turns out I need to drink more water. Which makes complete seance because I am not a big water drinker, and I had soda all day. I was trying to get my fix of Cranberry Sierra Mist for the rest of the year.
Jon got me a Nalgene water bottle last summer for our camping trip. I love it and try to take it everywhere. The reason I love it is I can keep track of how much water I drink, to make sure I am getting enough, because I honestly, I never get enough.
I am taking this more seriously, I don't want to puff up like a balloon, and I don't want to have to cut off my rings.

- Back pain can be ignored
- You must always be aware of how your wedding ring(s) fit. You never want to be in a position to have to cut them off because of swelling.
- Use the restroom anytime you have a chance. You never know when you have to sneeze. :0(
- As big as you think your clothes are in the beginning, them seem really tiny later on.
- Boots feel tighter around your legs because of swelling.
- At night, you can never have too many pillows.
- You always feel hungry, especially when cookies are involved.
- You are not so worried about how your pedicure looks considering half the time you cant see your toes.
- In the laying position you feel like a beached whale.
- The bigger you get, the more you cant wait to actually hold you baby!

Chloee has a really mothering nature about her, she would always take care of George by cleaning him all the time, just as if he were her puppy. Now she is acting like she lost him or something. I felt really sad for her.

I have been looking at HGTV's rate my space. and I found this design that I LOVE! Like I have said before I am not into the really girly rooms. I like when they are stylish with a hint girliness. When I found this one I fell in love with the curtains. The user did not say where she got them from, but judging from the pictures I saw from the rest of her house, she probably had them made when she saw the fabric. I have seen similar curtains from anthropology (which I LOVE), and Ikea, but nothing that matches exact.
The other thing I love about it is, in so many baby rooms, the design just screams from the bedding in the crib, overpowering the rest of the room. In this room the user said she got inspiration for the room from the curtains. But if you notice the bedding is really neutral. I have found this organic bedding I really like at babies r us. It is neutral, and at the store, it felt really nice.

With the anticipation of everything Christmas, I especially love Sierra Mist's Cranberry splash soda that is only available during the Christmas season. It usually comes out in September. Jon and I had to pick up some drinks for a party we were going to in September, and when i saw them in the soda section I was so excited! So, Jon being the wonderful husband he is, did what any husband of a craving pregnant woman would do. Buy as many as he could.
Being pregnant this year, I especially love it because it is caffeine free. I have had my coffee in the mornings and such, but I have cut down quite a bit on the caffeine intake. The whole idea that I love this soda is so funny considering I NEVER drink soda. I prefer water or tea.
The saddest part about this obsession is how it comes to an end. It is rare that i find this soda in stores this close to Christmas. I have found a couple of 12 packs at target and staters, but I CANNOT find the 2 litter bottles. I think the sad aspect of this is that I want it for Christmas day. I have a 12 pack that I am storing for Christmas day. but I don't think that is enough. :o(

The basis of it was a small group of women, that have a leader that is an older women, and you meet weekly. Along with that there is a curriculum that you follow, and the topics very from week to week. Some of the topics they go over are, Honoring Gods word, Loving your husband, Loving your children, Keepers of the home (cooking, housecleaning, laundry, etc.), Stewardship (Time, own health), and Godly attributes. Just to name a few.
When I was checking this out, I found that they are also posting recipes. I am always one that loves to get recipes, so I enjoyed it!
I am not sure when sign-ups start again for the next rotation (which, by the way is only 8 weeks, you don't have to commit you whole life!) but I totally recommend it to any young married (or not married, you really can glean from this) women.
Anyway, you can get the recipes here.
