"When are you moving back?!"

Man, if I had a dime for every time someone has asked me that! :D haha.. it's good to be loved.

Here's my schedule (drum roll please):

November 7 - Flight from LAX > JAN. I'm bringing Moby and coming home! (for two weeks.)

November 22 - Flight from JAN > LAX. Burin, my dad, and I fly back out here to CA, pack up the car, and my dad and I are driving back to MS over the next three days or so, hopefully making it back by Thanksgiving day. Burin is thinking about going back to Bangkok for a couple of weeks, so he won't be coming with us. He'll come back to MS in his own time. ;)

And there you go.

What was that?

You're ready for a non-baby related post? I guess I can oblige. Here we go.

Things I will miss about California:
  • the shopping - so many places to choose from!
  • In-N-Out
  • all the beach cities - so cool!
  • the weather - not too hot, no humidity (though I really do miss thunderstorms)
  • the diversity
  • Taco Surf - a really cool local Mexican restaurant
  • Trader Joe's
  • all the places to go and things to do in general

Things I will NOT miss about California:

  • traffic
  • smog
  • El Pollo Loco commercials - most annoying jingle EVER
  • this house - the ants, the street noise, the bad electrical wiring.. ugh
  • the rumble of fireworks off in the distance coming from here at promptly 9:30pm almost every night
  • skunks - omg the skunks
  • earthquakes - one was enough for me, thanks (though tornados are much scarier)
  • 1850 miles

Good trip home

I had a great time at home last week. I had several appointments and got to see lots of friends and family! :)

On Monday morning I had another pre-natal appointment and they did another sonogram. However, the baby decided to be stubborn and uncooperative, so we still don't know if it's a boy or a girl (hmm... stubborn and uncooperative.. a boy?!). ;) Maybe they'll do another one at my next appointment on 11/13.

The stats: the baby weighs 9 ounces, heart rate was 164, and my due date (as of Monday) is March 14!

I made it back safely to CA last night. At one point on the plane I looked down and noticed that one of the tiny diamonds in my engagement ring had fallen out. I am so disappointed! I guess we will see if the store can replace the stone. I hate dealing with things like this.

On a better note, I got my hair cut today and it was long overdue! It feels sooo much better.

I'm pretty tired and I may quite possibly be going to bed soon. (It's not even 9:15.. ugh). I'll blame it on jetlag rather than the fact that I'm now 30.

That's it.

It's official. I'm officially a pregnant person. I'm now the (proud?) owner of maternity pants.

Oh yeah.
Stylin' and profilin'.

(no, this isn't me. everyone knows i'm not that tall and skinny!)
