The wife of the year award goes to..


I skipped my 2nd child birth class yesterday evening in order to let my husband watch his Capitals win the their first series in the NHL playoffs. (and have friends over to enjoy some adult beverages while watching).

Childbirth class scared me enough the first time. and the topics for yesterday didn't look all that interesting. We will NOT be skipping anymore.. esp. since the next (and last) 2 classes include the hospital tour and pain management.

and i need my pain management starting now.. thanks.

Childbirth Classes

First of all I am officially 30 weeks pregnant.. which means baby Ethan will officially be here in 10 weeks..

that is serious.

to prepare for this momentous occasion hubby and I are attending child birth classes once a week for the next 5 weeks. Last night was the first one..

I didn't learn much.. except for (this is about to be tmi)how big the hole must get in order to get the baby out.. and this was just the introduction.

I should have requested the epidural the moment I saw 2 lines on the pregnancy test.

Holy Hell.

There are many many reasons I love my SUV. I won't list them all for you but it is pretty safe to say that I will never have another car.

However today, I am driving my moms sweet BMW. Because my lovely Jeepy had to have some service done (covered under warranty thank god). But being 5'7'' and prego.. getting in and out of this car is hard! I just kinda fall in and out of my Jeepy. I have to seriously work to get out of this car with the baby bump.

So while I look extra hip and sporty in the the luxurious 2 door. I will stick to my more functional SUV.

and mom since I know you read this I am not hating.. your car is perfect for you! and you will look like a super hip grandma once Ethan is here! Love you!!

Designer Diaper Bags

Is it too high maintenance to want this?
I would also settle for a Coach Diaper Bag..

Hubster says that it won't be be as cute with Ethan's spit up on it..

first of all Clemson was absolutely fabulous. I had a great time with my friends and I was so extremely happy to see some of the girls I hadn't seen in a long time. The baby shower was absolutely fab and I can't thank everyone enough for everything they did. There will be a much better post on all things baby shower later..

I cannot write about happy things right now.. because I am too PISSED off.

The basic 411:

I picked College of Notre Dame to go to graduate school because I would be able to work full time while finishing my degree. It is ridiculously more expensive then some of the other programs I could be enrolled in right now because it is private. But it WAS one of the sole programs that allowed you to work full time the entire time you were enrolled. So after discussing financially with the hubster we decided it was very doable for us to have baby Ethan and build our house and have me finish grad school.. as long as I was working. Well I get an email from my advisor today saying they have changed program requirements..

So i think okay lovely.. ill have to take one more class or an additional class.. whatever at this point it doesn't really make too much of a difference because I still have 1.5 years to go in the program. BOY was I wrong! There new requirements is that you full time student teach for an entire semester while NOT working. Meaning 5 months with no paycheck.. and that's if I could work up til the time I started student teaching and got a job right after I was finished.

So my whole reason for picking this program is null and void and now.. So now I will ponder what to do.. man oh man do I need a margarita right now!!!!!!

Monday I did..

purchase a new rug and welcome mat and placemats for the kitchen table CHECK
write a paper for class tonight CHECK
do laundry.. lots of laundry CHECK
clean the bathrooms CHECK
dust the bedroom and family room CHECK
dishes/clean counters CHECK
shower CHECK
and go to class. (class canceled not my fault!)

I didn't go to the grocery store.. but thats okay because me and the mister will be in CLEMSON day after tomorrow! So we will just eat what we have til then. And I didn't tape the nursery cuz hubby said he would handle it. Our house in clean though and I love it.

Clemson anytime makes me happy.. but esp. in the spring with all my fab sorority sisters. and who doesn't love a good baby shower! So many little things for baby Ethan who is so excited to see all his aunts =)

so much to look forward to this weekend- I CANT WAIT!!!!!!!

SIDE NOTE: April Fool's Day is stupid. Today on the way to work I got myself all riled up because I thought one of my favorite radio stations had screwed up royally and played an inappropriate and unacceptable april fools day joke. However the joke was on me because they were all really playing a joke on their boss by having callers call in and complain. I thought I was going to have to stop listening out of principal!
